It Is Time

This Saturday, February 3, the NFL Hall of Fame voting committee will select the 2007 class for the Hall of Fame. Either Art Monk will be included in the 2007 class or all of the busts that are currently on display there should be melted down for lighting fixtures.

Don't take my word for it.

Click the link to this video. It was put together by a fan who printed it on DVDs and sent it to every HOF voter. Be patient because it is a big file. Watch it. Read and listen to what current Hall of Famers have said about Monk over his career--people like Ronnie Lott, John Madden, Ken Stabler, Frank Gifford, Charley Taylor, Dan Dierdorf, Dan Fouts, Todd Christensen, Merlin Olsen, Bill Walsh and Joe Gibbs. Each considered Monk a sure Hall of Famer when Monk was still playing.

Also, read what sure-thing future Hall of Famers had to say about Monk.

People like Jerry Rice who said in 1998:

"I feel, no doubt, (Monk) was one of the best receivers to ever play the game."

Or Bill Parcells (1995):
"Monk is headed to Canton downhill on roller skates."

Read Paul Tagliabue (1995).

Listen to Rod Woodson.

Read what Michael Irvin said.

Read what the super Bowl bound Colts President Bill Polian had to say about Monk.

Watch the video and count how many times you hear, "Future Hall of Famer" Art Monk come out of the mouths of current Hall of Famers.

When you retire as the all-time receptions leader; when you were the first NFL player to make over 100 receptions in a single season; when you retire with the record for most consecutive games with a catch; when you lead like Monk did, block like Monk did; when you were the only player on the Redskins offense to be on the roster for all four Redskins Super Bowl runs; when you lead your team to four NFC Championships and three Super Bowl championships in eleven years...
