Art Monk for the Hall Video

Tom Kercheval put together this incredible highlight reel of Art Monk’s career.  It collects video evidence to specifically refute some of the arguments voters have made against Monk:

  1. Just wondering how These voters continue to snubb one of the greatist ever. The Voters are ridiculous, and so biased. How can Stallworth, Swann, Irvin, Lofton etc.. get in and Monk still left out. Its a shame these people get to have such power in the say of these things. Monk is the model NFL player who was consistent for so long, broke records, and kept his nose clean.

  2. I grew u wtching the Washington Redskins in Rockford, Ill. Thats where I saw true and unselfish team player! Although it was har to see my beloved skin’s play(because of the bear’s),But when I did I looked for number 81. I knew that I could count on him to make a play! It semed as if I was more excited the he made a first down than he was, no celibration just back to the hudle. I remember the night Art Monk set a record on Monday Night Footall and the team celibrated for Art Monk by lifting him up during the game! I know in this day we look to the people who brag and look for selfgratification, but lets not forget this 3 time superbowl champion who was unselfish enough to show us how the ame should be played! VOTE ART MONK into the HALL! It’s a shame Art had to wait ths long!

  4. Not voting in Art would be like the baseball hall of fame rejecting Cal Ripken,or the NBA ignoring Patrick Ewing.Alot of Redskins have gone completely ignored and continue to go ignored.If Paul Krause would have stayed with them,he may have gone ignored.Darrell Green may have trouble getting in too,just as Joe Thiesmann getting the cold shoulder.

  5. One of the many ridiculous arguments raised against Monk is that stats don’t tell the whole story. He was just a 2nd or 3rd option in a very good offense. He played a long time, thus explaining his lofty stats.

    Anyone who believes what I just wrote should consider Monk’s career against someone like Ricky Proehl. Proehl played from 1990-2006 on many NFL teams. He was fortunate enough to make it to 3 Super Bowls winning one of them. He was a very solid and very reliable 2nd or 3rd option his entire career. He ended up with about 670 catches for less than 9000 yards receiving. He didn’t make it to any Pro Bowls. He was never an All-Pro. He was just a very solid option for his QBs to go to.

    Back to Monk. 940 receptions, 12000+ yards, 3 Pro-Bowls, All-Pro distinction, 186 consecutive games with a catch. Throw in another 69 catches and 1000 receiving yards IN THE PLAYOFFS to boot. These are hardly the stats of a 3rd option. What Monk was and what he did are what every receiver strives to be. Only a few have done it and even fewer did it better than Monk, but NO ONE did it better BEFORE Monk.

  6. I fully understand the arguments with the newer recievers getting into the hall. Monk was the orginal prototype for todays receivers. Big and fast. He was unstopable in the playoffs. If Steve Largent is in the Hall then it’s an absolute crime that Monk isn’t. Irving gets inright away?! Monk not only did it all, he did it with class on and off the field. You can’t blame monk for playing wit another outstand receiver in Clark. Look at today’s Patriots. Dallas with TO. They are the ONLY to go guys in the wide receiver slot. Can you imagine having Moss and TO on one team? This should even e a discussion. Put Monk in…

  7. Art Monk is a Hall of Fame WR!! He has 3 Super Bowl rings. He has better stats than most of the so call HOF wr that got in when Monk did not. I for one am a huge football fan but I will not be going to Canton, Ohio without Monk. Monk and Green HOF in 08!
