Sharpe Belongs In Canton

Another Pro Football Hall of Fame class was announced on Saturday night in Houston, so it’s time for my annual early February rant. I wrote last year about LeRoy Butler not getting the respect he deserves from the voters. Well, thanks to former Bronco Terrell Davis’ induction, this year’s post will be about Sterling Sharpe. The argument against putting Sharpe in the Hall of...

Why Shannon Sharpe gave away his first Super Bowl ring

This was OUR Super Bowl. Ten minutes earlier, my Denver Broncos beat the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XXXII in San Diego. I was about to be interviewed by my brother Sterling, and I could barely hear him over the noise inside Qualcomm Stadium.

One Hall Of A Receiver

Shannon Sharpe was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011 and he wasn’t even the best player in his own family. While another eight people slipped on a yellow jacket Saturday, former Packers wide receiver Sterling Sharpe remains on the outside looking in – a place where he unfortunately figures to remain for the foreseeable future. The Hall of Fame’s selection...

Green Bay Packers Wide Receiver Sterling Sharpe

On August 8, 2015, Ron Wolf will receive his well deserved bronze bust and take his rightful place in the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.  Next year, Brett Favre will be enshrined.  Both of these events will be exciting for Green Bay Packers fans and I too look forward to the party. On the other hand, every time I watch one of these NFL Hall of Fame ceremonies on TV I am reminded...

The AA Sunday Studio Spectacular: NFL GameDay First

It’s hard to believe, well, maybe not so hard, but we have a Sunday morning NFL pregame show that airs at 7 a.m. ET/4 a.m. PT. And it seems appropriate that NFL Network is the channel that has the earliest pregame show leading into the day’s action. NFL GameDay First is one of the newer pregame shows having been established in 2012 when it was known as “First on the Field.”...

Late round steal turns into Hall of Fame TE for Denver Broncos

The best tight end the Denver Broncos ever drafted? That answer is simple: Shannon Sharpe. Of course, no one thought he would earn that title when he was taken No. 192 overall in the seventh round of the 1990 NFL Draft, though. Sharpe was stellar in college, becoming the first ever Savannah State player to participate in the East-West Shrine Game, he was the college athlete of...

The worst WR drafted by the Packers based on draft position

Out of 77 drafts the Green Bay Packers have selected a wide receiver with just five of their 89 total first round picks. There have been varying degrees of success; amongst the five, three appeared in the Pro Bowl at least once, one is enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and another probably should be. But James Lofton, Sterling Sharpe and Javon Walker are just three of the...
