Marvin Harrison asks Jim Irsay to present him at the Hall of Fame

AP

Colts owner Jim Irsay will have a big role in Canton next month.

Irsay revealed on Twitter that Harrison has asked him to present him for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame used to allow each enshrinee to choose one player to deliver a speech on his behalf. But as the speakers droned on and on and the induction ceremonies got longer and longer, the Hall of Fame has changed things to introduce enshrinees with pre-taped video messages. So Irsay won’t be on a live mic.

The induction ceremony, which will also include former Colts coach Tony Dungy, takes place on August 6.

  1. A couple of weeks before that week 17 when Eli and the G Men pushed the 15-0 patriots to the brink (a game that didn’t matter to them record wise all week but they played it like it was the super bowl) there was Super Bowl 42 1/2. Colts and Patriots were both 12/13-0. The Patriots won a close game.

    Marvin Harrison did not play in that game. Had he, there would be no 16-0 Patriots.

  2. Just a “shot in the dark” (as if commentors needed any ammunition regards Colts’ articles!) but I was wondering if Marvin’s usual henchman, cousin Lonnie Harrison, is unavailable for this mission?

  3. I’ve never watched a Hall of Fame presentation, but I would if they put Irsay on a live mic. Tell Peter King to tell the NFL about that. Since this is the NFL, it’s all about the Benjamins.

  4. For those of you who don’t know the facts of the murder case referred to in some of the post, look it up. It really unbelievable that he was never charged. The gun used, was his and he said it was never out of his locked space or it was on in. Moreover, the victim said Marvin shoot him, How Philly never bought charges is beyond reason.

  5. Marvin Harrison is one of the 5 all time best receivers and had the record for most catches in a single season. He played when defenses were allowed to bump and grab. If he played today he would be unstoppable. He was a great selfless teammate on the field and great sportsman. Should have been n the hall 2 years ago.

    How do you figure? Marvin generally came up small in big games. I remember a playoff game where Corkey completed more passes to Ty Law than he did Harrison as the Colts eked out 3 points.

  7. Marvin Harrison scares me a hundred times more than does James Harrison. The fact that he committed murder and that it was swept under the rug is truly one of the most bizarre and perplexing stories in NFL history. He is quite obviously connected to higher-ups in a terrifying way and his quiet demeanor while he was in the league certainly helped him get help covering it all up. It doesn’t matter that the victim was a known drug dealer, murder is murder. I always assumed that despite the cover-up, that when it would come time to HOF eligibility, he wouldn’t be allowed in but that was short-sighted of me as the cover-up would not have been complete without a bust in Canton. He shouldn’t be donning a gold jacket next month, he should be in an orange jumpsuit sharing a cell with Aaron Hernandez.

  8. It’s unbelievable that Harrison is getting into the Hall Of Fame instead of being put in a cell next to Aaron Hernandez.
    And to have Jim Irsay present him is even more bizarre. It’s obvious Harrison is a bad guy and he should have been tried for murder in the death of Dwight Dixon.

  9. When Johnny Manziel presents Aaron Hernandez with a Nobel Peace Prize then and only then will this combo of drug addict to murderer be topped.

    Some hall of fame you’ve got there. Thank god we kept that awful Terrell Owens and his scandalous touchdown celebrations out.

    Harrison was 3-5 career (including playoffs) vs Brady’s Patriots. So no. My therapist says dreaming up alternate timelines for that season is unhealthy. I’d offer you the same advice.

  11. If those two don’t scream Goodell’s famed “Integrity” I don’t know what does. And Brady and Kraft are the bad guys….go figure

  12. “Had he, there would be no 16-0 Patriots.”

    OMG, stupid Colts fans can;t get the Patriots out of their head no matter what, even when we have an article about a Colt going into the Hall of Fame, it’s all about what he could have done against the Patriots in a game he didn’t even play in. I hope Irsay is that psychotic when he gives his Marvin Harrison speech:

    “and I give you the man, who had he not been nursing an injury all year, might have helped us knock off the undefeated 2007 Patriots, the man who we had the rule changed after the Patriots roughed him up in the 2004 playoff game against the Patriots, the man who shook Tom Brady’s hand many times after games against the Patriots and YES, the man who slapped Bill Belichick on the back after several games and said “great game, coach” in both defeat and victory, usually defeat”

  13. Pretty sure that this is going to be the first time HOF presenters have worn bulletproof vests onstage.

    I don’t know what your having but I hope there’s a couple left when 5:00 rolls around, ’cause I’d like to try it.

  15. It’s still unbelievable to me that this go got in over TO. They won’t vote in a clearly superior WR because of “character issues”, but they have no problem electing a guy who shot multiple people.

  16. It’s still unbelievable to me that this go got in over TO. They won’t vote in a clearly superior WR because of “character issues”, but they have no problem electing a guy who shot multiple people. ================================ Harrison had to wait 2 years as they voted in Andre Reed and Tim Brown before him because of a stupid rule that only 1 receiver could get in every year. Harrison was one of the 5 best receivers of all time and should have been a first ballot hall of famer.

    There’s no evidence Harrison shot anyone.

    >

  17. oh so his hidden belgian pistol in a car wash bucket after he lied about its whereabouts, means he was not hiding the weapon used to try to kill 2 people in he street?

    google “the curious case of marvin harrison” and get back to the rest of the country, indy dork.

  18. And pauldeba says the Colts fans are obsessed with the patriots,yet 90% of the comments on here are from the same usual bitter dweebs from Podunk new england who live their entire lives on this website. What a hypocrite

  19. Honestly, they talk about TO, and how his character kept him out, Marvins off field issues are a lot worse.

    All TO did is some sit ups, and whine and cry.

    Marvin killed a guy. Or sure appears so at least.

    TO ended his career top 5 in stats. He should have gotten in first ballot. Harrison was a product of Manning and James. He was not an amazing player by any means. Very good, but there is a reason he wasn’t first ballot.

    As I write this there are 36 posts on this thread, with only 8 total posts coming from people who I believe have identified themselves as Pats fans on this board (some have posted multiple times on this thread).

    I may be wrong but I believe those below, who have posted on this thread have the good sense, as I do, to be Pats fans.

    How are you getting 90% from 8 out of 36 posts (my post makes it 9 out of 37).

  21. “How are you getting 90% from 8 out of 36 posts ”

    Patriot haters are always big fans of fuzzy math.

    Not sure what he claims a hypocrite is, as Patriots fans posting on a news story about a Colts player is not obsessive, it is posting about the Colts on a Patriots thread that would make us obsessive.

    You Patsie* girls get so sensitive when your cheater has to sit out for 4 games.

  23. “when your cheater has to sit out for 4 games.”

    Unfortunately, there was no cheating except in the minds of corrupt or ignorant cretins like you.

  24. So I guess Irsay will be in rehab until the ceremony? It will be the only way he shows up sober enough to speak.

  25. Something tells me that Irsay’s speech will be longer than Harrison’s.

    As Bomani Jones stated on Twitter:

    “get ready for the shortest hof speech of all time, delivered by a man i have never seen.”
