So the Edelman to the Hall discussion is infecting various threads. The prevailing view seems to be that his regular season numbers are just too low and the lack of Pro Bowls is also a factor. On the other side, some point to his post season numbers and very serious contributions to three Super Bowl wins. Though I have not seen a lot of mention of his PED suspension as a factor here, some national writers, including some baseball writers FWIW, are opining that getting caught should disqualify him or at least be considered to be a real demerit. My motivation for starting this thread is to focus the discussion in one place and, in particular, to see if folks think the PED suspension should and will be a meaningful factor in the conversation. I know some will answer that the regular season numbers are so low that the PEDs thing will remain a red herring, and will never have the chance to enter into the discussion. Others might look at it in reverse: he got caught so even if he had the regular season numbers, he should be disqualified. In sum, all Julian talk re the HOF is welcomed...with a fine point on whether the PEDs thing matters.
