I'm happy Art Monk finally made the HoF. The fact that Michael Irvin, one of the most over-rated players of his generation, got in before Monk knocks the Pro Football Hall of Fame down a few sports in my book. Monk set records, won Super Bowls, and went about his business like a professional. Irvin snorted cocaine, acted like an idiot on the field, and was pretty much an embarrassment to himself and his team all throughout his career. In many ways, Irvin ushered in the me-first generation of wide receivers (T.O., Chad Johnson, Keyshawn, etc.). All the while, Irvin couldn't carry Art Monk's jock.
By whatever, Art is finally in. It is well deserved, and Redskins fans are happy.
On August 3rd, the Redskins and the Colts will play the first pre-season game of the 2008 season in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game in Canton, OH; the day Art Monk and others are inducted into the Hall. The Redskins will debut new head coach Jim Zorn that day.
For us Colts fans, the season starts a little early. This likely means Training Camp will start early for 2008.
