Larry Brown: Redskins Superstar RB Posted HOF Stats

           Will Larry Brown ever be inducted into the Hall of Fame?  That question is frequently tossed around by people like me who speculate on whether the third-leading rusher in Redskins history (5,875 yards) should receive his due in Canton.

          So when Brown appeared recently on my TV show, "Burgundy & Gold Magazine," I seized the moment.  I not only asked him his thoughts about being in the HOF, but phrased the question in the context of the induction last summer of the Broncos’ great running back, Floyd Little.  The two runners paralleled each other in career years – Brown (1969-76), Little (1967-75) – and also were remarkably similar in stats.  In rushing and receiving yards combined, Brown posted 8,360 to 8,741 for Little.  Little tallied 448 more rushing yards than Brown and 3,416 return yards to none for Brown, who wasn’t fast enough to return kicks.  However, Brown scored 55 touchdowns, one more than Little, and was the 1972 NFL MVP and a two-time first-team All-Pro.  Number 43 also was the engine of the great Redskin teams of the early-1970s, including one that appeared in Super Bowl VII, while Little played on bad-to-mediocre Denver squads.

          With that in mind, let's hear your thoughts on whether No. 43's bronze bust should be in the HOF.
