Oooofff that one struck a heartstring. How can you say that? 4 superbowl appearances and crazy good stats...

Only 4 1,000 yard seasons. How is that "crazy good stats"? He was an accumulator, that's it.

4 Super Bowl appearances? So what? First of all, the only reason the Bills made it to 4 straight is because the AFC was extremely weak. That is why they, like every other AFC team, got the snot beaten out of them as soon as they made it to the Super Bowl. Second, it isn't like they even won one anyway.

Back to the first point, as amazing of an accomplishment that the Bills pulled off by getting to 4 straight, they like the rest of the AFC was no match for those NFC teams. From 1985 to 1997, the NFC won every single Super Bowl. Even more than that? Outside of 3 games, they were all complete blowouts.

Right... but the bills still dominated half of the league, even if they were inferior to the NFC. They were one of the main reasons why marino never won a ring. Do you feel if he was in the SB 4x straight he would have lost them all?

Nothing made me feel more old than flipping onto an episode of Full House the other day and remembering what happened on the episode. Then I checked the date of when it aired originally (of which I saw it). 25 years ago!!!!!

This is a good point. Andre Reed still not in, nor chris carter. TO and Moss have to be put in eventually and possibly torry holt.

Of course the big difference is that none of them have rings. If smith wins one, and does something special in it, he has agood shot. Look at Lynn Swann, he is in because of ONE PLAY!

A Lynn Swann would never get in today though

Be grateful he wants to play here and stop arguing over if he will go into the HOF.

Well, considering the one year they got there, they got destroyed...possibly.

Still, you even said it yourself. The Bills. Not Reed. Very good player. But I wouldn't put him in the Hall.

Not to take credit away from Reed or the Bills, but Marino was a big time playoff choke artist. He had one brilliant game - the AFC Championship game when they went to the Super Bowl. Check out his career playoff stats

I love it. Having Smith another 3 - 4 years would give us time to develope another WR.

I hear no athlete ever leaves the game satisfied. It was stunning the first time I heard it, but it seems to be true. There are a few that may have, but most of them are bitter when they leave. I hope Smitty will be one of the few, but I think he might be convinced to stick around for a few more. It just depends on when and how many times we get rings.

If we get none before 4 years, Id say he could be convinced to stay for one or two more. It wasnt too long ago that a young 89 was asking a 34 year old Ricky Proehl to stick around for more shot at the ring. His speed will allow him to play as long as he can tolerate.

Does his son play football, or is he still a soccer player?

Apparently he still plays soccer.
