“We can’t spend this moment for all these other guys talking about the guy that is not here,” the Hall of Fame wide receiver said Saturday at the National Fantasy Football Convention. “You cannot do that and take that away. He’s doing his own thing wherever he’s doing his own thing, and God bless him. And when they mention the class they’ll mention him, but why should you steal those other guys’ moment because of the decision of this one?
Irvin was inducted into the Hall of Fame after his third year on the ballot following a career that included three Super Bowl wins with the Dallas Cowboys. He finished with 750 catches, 11,904 yards and 65 touchdown catches.
At the time of his retirement, he was the Cowboys’ all-time leader in catches and yards. Why are receivers the NFL’s biggest divas? These guys all think they’re the GOAT, but we know Jerry Rice is the one and only.
