SBN Wisconsin Hall of Fame Nomination #8 - Sterling Sharpe

Most of these nomination posts have been looking at players who played for the Green Bay Packers long before many of us actually became fans. While it's been over 15 years since WR Sterling Sharpe wore No. 84 on the field, he's someone we all might have seen play. If not seen on TV as an NFL analyst. 

I don't think he'll ever make it into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, there just doesn't seem to be enough momentum from the voters, but I don't have a good reason why not. He was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 2002 for good reason. It might be said he put up great stats during a period in time when many receivers were recording gaudy stats, but he still was named to the Pro Bowl 5 times, and first-team All-Pro 3 times, so he was obviously regarded as one of the best for his era. Maybe he would be better remembered if his career was longer, but football is often focused on excellence and not necessarily longevity. 

He's certainly one of the greatest players I've ever seen play for the Green Bay Packers.
