If Smith were to ever be the #1 WR on a Super Bowl winning team this debate would be different...HOF voters overrate players because of rings, just like fans do. They are simple minded...you were a champion?...oh you're awesome then!
They didn't throw it in Swann's day the way they do today, so comparisons like that aren't fair. Anyway what got Swann in was Superbowls.
