  • Irvin's HOF Induction Should Make Bruce Automatic

    Michael Irvin is a Hall of Famer. Can there be any question now that Isaac Bruce should be one too when he becomes eligible?

    Let's look at the numbers:

    Career Totals (Bruce, of course, still active):

    Irvin: 750 receptions/11,904 yards/65 TDs
    Bruce: 887 receptions/13,376 yards/80 TDs

    Career Single-Season Bests:

    Irvin: 111 receptions (1995)/1,603 yards (1995)/10 TDs (1995)
    Bruce: 119 receptions (1995)/1,781 yards (1995)/13 TDs (1995)

    Number of 1,000 yard seasons:

    Irvin: 7
    Bruce: 8

    Playoffs (per game avgs.):

    Irvin: 5.4 receptions/82.1 yards/.50 TDs (16 games total)
    Bruce: 4.9 receptions/84.3 yards/.44 TDs (9 games total)

    Add to those stats the fact that Irvin had several run-ins with the law while Bruce is one of the best character guys around, how could anyone argue that Bruce is not a sure-fire HOFer?

      We, as Rams' fans, of course think Bruuuuuuce is an automatic HOFer.

      The one thing your post did not take into account AV is that the playmaker played for "America's Team"... choke, choke, gag, gag....

        I heard Irvin's bronze bust will be displayed in the "Hookers and Crack" section of the Hall.:|

          Of course Bruce should be in the HOF and I think he will be. But we know it's not all about numbers. Sometimes it's about who's the loudest. Can anyone give me a good reason why Art Monk is not in the hall of fame? I fear Bruce may find himself in a situation like Monk.

            I think Monk should be in as well, and Bruce has already surpassed him in career receiving yards and TDs (he's 53 receptions behind Monk).

              Any of those people who induct these players, if any of them have half a brain, they'd know Bruce is an automatic.

                Well, apparently whether a player should be inducted doesn't have much to do with whether they are inducted. The fact that Irvin made it and Monk did not is prima facie evidence that Bruce might not make it in.

                But it's not because Bruce shouldn't make it in, it's because the crackheads that do the voting can't be relied upon.

                  So true. How sad.

                  There's no question Sir Isaac is a more efficient WR than Irvin, the ' Ugly Little Man' and yes, he should surpass Monk's receptions mark well before the new season ends. He is also far above the former Cowgirl in terms of character and class.

                  I'm confident we will see Bruce in the HOF as soon as his 5 yrs after retiring are up.

                          The fact that Irvin is in means that I don't really care if Bruce makes it in or not because the system is apparently flawed. Irvin was a good wr but HOF? Longevity and character should factor in to the voting process in my opinion and at this point, the sanctity of the Hall itself is compromised.

                          Monk is a great example of why the HOF is quickly becoming like the Pro Bowl as far as I'm concerned. The worst part is, I'll NEVER hear the end of it if I'm to watch a pregame show ever again.

                          Paul Warfield 1964-1977

                          There are (now) 18 WR's in the Hall of Fame(in the modern era 1948+). Can someone honestly tell me that Irvin should be on such a short list of WR's over the last 60 years? I think Jerry Jones is throwing his weight around on this one.

                            There is no automatic in the HOF. It's not all about the numbers.

                            Marshall Faulk is doing the right thing by getting his face in front of the public. Irvin is on tv. That probably helped keep his name alive.

                              Bruce will get in.
