Steve Smith has 634 catches for 9218 yards, and 54 TDs.
Cris Carter has 1101 catches for 13899 yards and 130 tds.
I will give you another example of a good player who won't get into the Hall but is/was better than Steve Smith... Jimmy Smith.
From 96-05 when he retired, only Marvin Harrison had more catches or yards than him. When he retired he had more catches than any wr in the hall.
862 catches, 12287 yards, 67 tds. Only fumbled 12 times, losing 4 in his career. Steve is sitting at 29 fumbles losing 11. Neither guy will be enshrined.
Keenan McCardell has similar numbers, along with many other players. You have to do more as a WR in the NFL to get in. It is unfortunate, but it is true. And Jimmy Smith has a ring as a Cowboy.
