Shannon Sharpe, in an emotional plea this weekend to those who elect players to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, asked that they consider nominating his brother and longtime Packers great, Sterling, to the hall.
Saying he was the second best player in his household, Shannon brought tears to Sterling, who sat onstage after introducing his younger brother at last weekend’s induction ceremony.
Sterling, who’s career ended prematurely because of a neck injury, was on track to break every Packers receiving record and he also missed the Packers’ rise to Super Bowl elite status by just a couple of seasons. Had Sterling been able to play for even a couple more seasons, think what he and Brett Favre could have accomplished together. Sterling probably could have made Favre even that much better.
So the question is, should Sterling Sharpe be considered for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame?
Well, here at Lombardiave, we say Duuuuhhhh!
