Tim Brown was one of five players eliminated on the cutdown from 15 modern era candidates to 10 by the 44 selectors for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The others who didn’t make the final 10 were running back Jerome Bettis, wide receiver Cris Carter, defensive end Chris Doleman and defensive end Charlies Haley.

    Brown was better than both Reed & Carter imho. Reed making it past Brown & Carter must be due to his waiting time. Most certainly not production.

    Cris carter didn’t make the list of finalist, either.

    He was a helluva WR, too. Had some impressive career numbers also.

    But, he had some baggage. He’s a jerk and had some off-field issues/drug problems.

    Timmy was squeeky clean, as far as I know.

    Get em next year, kid.

    (a)tony dungy ,well known for defense

    (a)not missing a game saving tackle on defense
    pats 2001 Tom Brady, who completed 16 of 27 passes for 145 yards with a touchdown
    Warner finished the game with 28 completions out of 44 passes for 365 yards, 1 touchdown, and 2 interceptions, and rushed 3 times for 6 yards and a touchdown. Warner’s 365 passing yards were the second highest total in Super Bowl history and lost
    pats 20
    rams 17
