The NFL HoF is  thinking about enshrining 20 members in it's 2020 class which is the centennial year of the NFL

 

The HoF is a very selective group so I am sure that this will be debated because 20 is a large number

 

But this COULD FINALLY be the time that Takser gets in if it is approved

 

What say you?

Tasker doesn’t belong in HOF. Levy should not have been inducted before Coryell or Flores.

Coryell had more impact on NFL.  Tom Flores has two SB wins. Levy was very good and has a better overall record put crapped the bed in the biggest game.

If they try and do this one time correction, it should be for offensive linemen, kickers, and defense. There are enough Offense skill players.

That said they should waive the waiting period for Brady, Manning, and Brees. They may be the greatest quarterbacks of all time. Not my top 3 but you can make a good case for them being top 3 in that order.

 

They should not waive the waiting period for any living person, ever. 

 

Otherwise I agree with this post.

KD, I’m surprised with House and your response. The others, not so much. There’s no gimmick here, the Hall is trying to make up for oversights and their own rule of 8 enshrine/yr maximum. The Hall opened in ‘63, 42 years after the League ‘kicked off’. The Bills made the playoffs that year but Canton wasn’t taking the AFL seriously at that time. 13 members made the initial class, 5 of which were team owners or League President. Sammy Baugh, Red Grange & Don Hutson hi-lighted the initial players. So the Hall has been playing catch up ever since and this is the sole reason for the large Centennial Class. The AFL merger is the single biggest ‘thing’ the League did their 1st century and I’m hoping that’s what influences some of the extra enshrines. Butch Byrd, George Saimes, Tom Sestak & Jack Kemp were significant contributors from our team to the AFL in helping force the merger and it’s what I’d like to see. Yes, Hull, Tasker, Wolford and Biscuit were tremendous players and I hope they’ll eventually get in. But if it’s ever going to happen for our forgotten AFL superstars, next year is the year.

 

 

Really good point here about the AFL that I didn’t consider.

 

If they are using the extra pucks to comb through the decades to correct situations that have fallen through the cracks, yes I get it and it makes sense.  I just don’t want to see  5 more WRs from the pinball era.

 

Thanks for the post Chandler.

Maybe the NFL is planning on adding 2 members from each decade.  I doubt the speeches will be long for those who were in the NFL 90 years ago.

Psh. They already induct too many as it is. They should do like 3 per year. Make it truly elite.

I know right? If anything it just means more HoF quality players get in. A participation trophy? They arent just letting anyone get in lol

 

How do you explain a guy like Jerome Bettis? Or in the future, Eli Manning, Matt Ryan? Phillip Rivers might get in too and I'm borderline on him being a HOFer. All these guys will get in if we say there is no limit on the number of guys that can make it.

Only if you are obsessed with bashing Bills. Plenty of other teams have crazy fans.  Some are even so obsessed with it they spend most of their time on other fans boards bashing Bills.

I'd be for it if they restricted it to the many AFL players unjustly kept out by the pettiness of the NFL establishment.

I could live with it as a one time thing, but overall I think overall the NFL HOF is too easy to get admitted too while MLB is too hard for selection.

Horrible idea.  Takes away from the prestige.  The HOF should not be handing out participation trophies.

 

I agree. On a similar note the other morning on WGR Jeremy was yapping how they should retire more numbers and have more statues of players.  You do it too ofter or make where so many players get in it doesn't make it as special

a side committee just put Harold Baines in the HoF, so there goes your too hard....

 

there wasn't the remotest chance Harold even dreamt of deserving this

The ceremony is long enough, imagine how long it would take with 20 inductions. They'd have to spread it over two or more days. 

 

More days? more tv? More tickets? More commercial?

 

Roger isn’t going to like this 😎

That’s what the HOF committee has stated; 1 time thing.

somewhere Robert Royal is on an exercise bike wondering when his number will be called.

 

(for those who do not remember he thought he was on course for enshrinement)

Kaye Stephenson.  He played.  He coached.  He (and his players) showed a ‘lot of character’.
