Not sure how these stats were presented with the intent of propping Mason as a superior player.

I watched Irvin in his prime. Andre Reed, Jerry in the 90s, Chris Carter etc. I know Irvin was good and won SBs... But the HOF isn't a team thing, it's individual.

 

At the end of the day Mason has better individual football stats.

Dmase had offers from the Ravens and the Patriots.  His wife nixed NE.  If he had gone to NE he may have gotten more push, still I doubt he would get in.  This is why I pull for our guys to get more national recognition.  If the media doesn't recognize them while they play, they have little chance for big awards.

Irvin in his prime was absolutely dominant. He was one of the main guys,who changed the way teams looked at WR’s a bit, A 4.6 40 wasnt necessarily a red flag anymore & you didn’t have to find  the elusive 4.3  guy who can also track the ball over his shoulder to make big plays down the field. Irvin was a monster down the field, he was special when it came to contested throws, and red zone lobs. Stuff that a defense just can’t scheme out.

I made a post a while back that Mason was the most HOF player in Titan history

DMase was a great receiver, for sure... but at no point in his career was he ever considered to be elite top-5 WR in the league.  
 

He’s kinda in the same boat with guys like Frank Gore or Rickey Watters:  he was a damned good player for a lot of years....but it’s hard to call him one of the  best of all time when he wasn’t even one of the best in his own time.
