So happy for Carmichael, wasn’t sure they’d ever fix that. He’s a great guy too. Within his era, where DBs could do whatever they wanted to, he was still so dominant even with the subpar QBs he had for more than half his career. He’s a guy that would’ve only done better in the decades since he hung it up. Which you can’t always say about the legacy players that are up for the HoF.

When you look at where he ranked when he left the game, he was at or near the top of every important receiving category. Each of his seasons and for his career.

Helped build an positional archetype.


Sabol should’ve gotten in the year he died.
