There are many people who have said that Johnny Robinson
is one of the greatest safeties to ever play in the modern era. He was certainly among the best to play in the old American Football League as he was voted to all AFL team.
Johnny Robinson was a converted Wide Receiver who adapted to the role of Safety effortlessly. Robinson would twice lead the league in interceptions and cemented himself as the master of the position. The AFL may have been a new league, but it was obvious that this was no bush circuit and the statistics that Robinson accrued were impressive. Robinson led the defensive core to three AFL championships and a Super Bowl win. Quarterbacks avoided him, and it is no stretch to say that offences worked their systems around him.
When Johnny Robinson intercepted a pass his teams went 35-1-1. That is evidence of a dominant player and a true game breaker. As one of the greatest players of the AFL who proved success in the merged NFL, his exclusion from the Hall is a little suspect.
