Chris Carter's career as a WR puts him at a higher spot (or ranking) amongst the history of WR's than any of the following players would rank all-time in their respective positions:

Deion Sanders (CB)
Marshall Faulk (RB)
Shannon Sharpe (TE)
Richard Dent (DE)

The difference between these 4 players and Chris Carter is that they were all elected to the HOF this year and Carter was not. I'm not saying that any of the above inductees weren't worthy of the Hall, I just think Carter would rank higher among the "all-time" best receivers than any of the aforementioned inductees would fall within their respective positions.


Shannon Sharpe fell victim to Gonzalez and Gates breaking his records. At the time of his retirement he led most categories for receiving and TD's. He is also a 3 time Super Bowl winner with Denver and Baltimore. Normally, he would have been a first ballot HOFer, but he had to wait a couple of years as more lauded players (Rice, E. Smith, John Randle) came up on the ballot.

Marshall Faulk was arguably the greatest all puropse back in league history and a key ingredient to one of the most potent offensive attacks in league history. He appeared in two SB's and won a ring. He was MVP in 2000 and a 3 time OPOY.

Richard Dent waited a long time to get in and at one time was one of the elite DE in the league and part of the vaunted '85 Bears D.

Deion, although tackling skill was always a question, he was one of the elite shutdown corners of all time. He took away a 1/4 of the field and garnered so much respect most opposing QB's wouldn't throw his direction. He was also a threat on special teams.

These cats all have hardware, Carter doesn't. Is it a fair criteria? Depends on your point of view, but Carter has been a victim of higher profile talent on the ballot. MTC

C'mon Ricky, give him the heater/......great movie.
And CC ....what is not to like for Hall credentials?

February 7, 2011  04:47 PM ET

rings may not be the only criteria (see Haley, Charles) but when you're looking at skill positions, they sure make a difference

Haley was very good...he kind of falls in that Art Monk category for me, meaning a borderline selection.

I'll line out my point of view in my second and third arguments...I don't want to blow my wad in the comment section.

You are probably correct with Dent and Faulk, but Deion is considered by many to be the best cover corner ever and Shannon Sharpe would rank in the top 5 TE's in history.

Carter was good, but not top 5 WR All-Time.

No vote for now, but leaning right.

Okay, at the time of his retirement ('02) name five wr's that had a better career than CC.

I'll be glad to do a separate TD on this matter, but I won't be having one in the comments of someone else's.

Also, nowhere does it say "At the time he retired". Heater clearly stated "All-Time" That means from the NFL beginnings until today.

Thanks, although Heater hasn't submitted an argument for hours...

Leaning waaaaay left.

Bring the heat left to keep the vote otherwise? Chad gets it.

Carter ranks higher at his position than THOSE guys? What are you smoking?

Where do you rank Carter in all time receivers? Top 3, or something?

Sharpe was definitely top three all time receiving TE. Faulk was a one of a kind back, maybe THE best all around/do it all back in history. Deion was not only the most feared CB in his time, but also a great kick returner and even played a decent WR for a couple years.

Carter might not be a top 15 all time receiver. Never mind his attitude and off field problems.

Kind of lost on the Dent induction. I mean, he was good/very good, but I can't label him "great." And with the caliber of players being left out (Carter, Brown, Bettis, Martin) and the stacked upcoming classes, I'm a bit skeptical on Dent's selection.

Dent was the leader on one of the best defenses ever assembled. Does that make him an HoFer? I dunno. Apparently.

I think Carter is Hall of Fame worthy. Seems like the cat was always scoring touchdowns and he was a great leader on his teams as well.

I agree that Carter is HOF worthy, but the way Heater's 1st argument reads it doesn't hold too much water with me.

Biakaba's explanation makes more sense. Deion and Sharpe were slam dunks, Faulk has an MVP and a ring and Dent has had a lot of people lobbying for him. Carter will get in soon.
