Let’s compare resumes.
Hines Ward: 1,000 career catches (14th all-time)
12.1 yards per reception
Second-team All-Pro three times
Four Pro Bowls
2005 Super Bowl MVP
Julian Edelman: 620 career catches (75th all-time)
11 yards per reception
Never made All-Pro
Never made a Pro Bowl
2018 Super Bowl MVP
If Ward isn’t in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, then Edelman is nowhere close.
In fact, Edelman is nowhere close by any standard. To push this utter mediocrity for the Hall of Fame is absurd.
