Sanders was a tight end who played for the Lions from 1968-1977. He was pretty good. Made seven Pro Bowls. But ...
- His best receiving season was 656 yards.
- He was on four winning teams.
- His only playoff game was a 5-0 loss.
- He scored 31 touchdowns in his entire career.
Maybe the worst Hall of Famer ever, pending further investigation. I apologize for negativity directed toward Mr. Sanders, who would be a first-ballot "All Very Good Hall". I just don't understand how he qualifies for the real Canton.
