Will this finally be the year that the consummate professional at WR gets in?

Former Los Angeles Rams (and St. Louis Rams) WR Isaac Bruce has been named as a Pro Football Hall of Fame finalist for the third time (consecutive):

Bruce is one of the 15-former players that is named a finalist in 2019. The Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee will narrow the selections down on the eve of the Superbowl.

Bruce was one of the focal points of the greatest offense the NFL has ever seen — the Greatest Show on Turf. Reverend Ike — as they call him — was a four-time pro bowl selection, a Superbowl champion, a second-team All-Pro, and the Rams’ all-time leader in touchdown receptions and receiving yards. In his career, Bruce totaled 1,024 receptions for 15,208 yards (which was second all-time when he retired), and 91 touchdowns. Bruce’s famed #80 was retired by the Rams, ensuring nobody would wear the number again so long as the franchise exists.

Let’s get our deserved candidate in the Hall of Fame already. There was no more of a consummate and respectful professional who let his play do all the talking for him.

Long live Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce.
