Andre Reed Again Snubbed For the Hall of Fame

Another year, another year of frustration for Andre Reed.

The best Bills WR of all-time was again Saturday passed over for the honor of going into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Reed made the final 10, but didn’t get the call, joining fellow WR’s Cris Carter and Tim Brown as great wide outs to be left off the list.

“I believe Andre Reed belongs in the Hall of Fame,” said former Bills coach Marv Levy. “Now that’s one voice speaking, but I know his teammates would all say it very strongly. I don’t believe there’s ever been anyone better at yards after catch than Andre. And as a self-effacing, modest, hard-working, always-prepared individual that makes me root for him even more.”

Reed wrapped up his playing career with 13,198 yards on 951 catches, as well as scoring 87 touchdowns. He ranks in the all-time top 10 in receptions and receiving yards and is 11th in career touchdown receptions.

He was the best WR on a team that made four straight Super Bowls, and has the second-most receptions in Super Bowl history behind Jerry Rice and is third in all-time Super Bowl receiving yards.

If he’s being punished for the Bills not winning one of those four Super Bowls, it’s not his fault, nor should he be kept out of the Hall because of it.
