Price is nation's most underrated
Washington's QB compares favorably to several Heisman-contending passers
One of the reasons Tim Brown and Andre Reed have had trouble getting inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame is that they had the misfortune of playing at the same time as the greatest pass-catcher in NFL history, Jerry Rice.
Rice set the bar so extremely high in just about every statistical category that any of his contemporaries' achievements pale in comparison. Until Brown and Reed are viewed through a non-Rice prism, their Hall of Fame candidacies will be hindered.
That case shows just how damaging bad timing can be when it comes to getting the proper credit for one's achievements.
