Tasker has King’s HOF support

Posted by Chris Brown on November 28, 2011 – 10:48 am

Bills Wall of Famer Steve Tasker made the list of Pro Football HOF semifinalists for the 2012 induction class along with fellow Wall of Famer Andre Reed. SI.com’s Peter King supports Tasker’s candidacy, but just isn’t sure he’ll make the list of 15 finalists.

Here’s what King wrote about Tasker’s candidacy in his Monday Morning QB column.

Steve Tasker made it, which is good. I’ve said this before about him: His long-time special teams coach in Buffalo, Bruce DeHaven, once gave me a tape of 10 plays Tasker made on special teams that he figures won games for the Bills in their glory years. I back the man I consider the best special teams player ever, and I think he did enough to get in. But I’d be surprised if he made the final 15.

King unfortunately believes that there’s not enough support among the Hall of Fame voters to get him through to the list of 15 finalists. Reed however, should get there for yet another crack at enshrinement.
