He certainly has the accolades. 7x Pro Bowler. 5x First Team All-Pro.

One of the weakest groups ever.

 

Hutchinson, Boselli,  and Polamalu deserve to be elected.  All three were considered true greats at the time they played.

 

Boselli was great and arguably the best in the league at LT but a 6 year career casts some doubt.  If they 

let in Terrell Davis then they should put in Boselli.  For the record I don't think Davis should have been elected but I would vote for Boselli.  Boselli was elected to all-decade team.  

 

Zach Thomas was a stat collector and not a difference maker at MLB.  The WRs are all very good but I'm not convinced any of them should be in HOF.  

 

I don't support Tasker as a HOF player, but if ever there was a year to make a statement about special teams and the impact he had on the game this was the year.  If he can't be a finalist with this group he will never get in.

 

I've posted before, they should put Don Coryell and Tom Flores in the HOF before any of these players.

Am I the only one here who was just not that impressed with Reggie Wayne?  Yeah he was good with Peyton throwing to him but ... HOF good?????  Really?????????

 

 

And while I'm at it:  Steve Atwater should've been in years ago.

First thing I thought of when I saw the list. Ok player, but not Hall worthy.

Then I would love to hear your criteria for a WR being selected into the Hall of Fame.

used to watch games with Fish fans, on 3rd and 3 the opponents would run right at him for 5 easy yards and the Fish fans would do a hula dance celebrating the awesome tackle by Zach

That seems like a little bit of a weak class. I don't remember any of these guys truly being a dominant force that took over games over a long period of time. To me that's what an HOF player is.  These guys were all good to great players, but not forces to be reckoned with. Seymour, Pom, James and Atwater are the closest. Boselli had a short but decent career. 

The rest seem like any pro-bowl players who made it a few times, but not consistently.

Weak class. The only one I’d vote for is Polamalu. He redefined the position.

Sam Mills belongs in the HOF. It's the "Pro Football" Hall of Fame, not just NFL. While his NFL career is borderline, if you add his 3 USFL seasons, he should be a no-doubter. He was 3x All-USFL & won 2 championships. Tackle stats weren't kept for the USFL (I'd bet he's the all-time leader), but he had 9 INTs & 15 sacks in 3 seasons, which is amazing for an ILB.

 

If you haven't seen it, Mills' "A Football Life" is the best episode I've ever seen. Great player & an even better person.

Richard Seymour is a cheap shot POS that has no business being considered for the HOF.  He cheapshotted the Bills constantly as a Cheat.  ***** him.

To be considered one of the top 2 or 3 WRs of your era. You can’t just look at catches.  Wayne wasn’t even best WR on his team. Moss, Harrison, Carter, Calvin Johnson, TO, Fitzgerald all were more dominant while their careers overlapped with Bruce, Holt, and Wayne.

Were they less dominant or simply overlooked and under-appreciated?

 

Torry Holt was the fastest receiver in history to 10,000 yards.  

 

Has everyone really forgotten The Greatest Show on Turf that quickly?  Before gaudy numbers became a regular thing for so many receivers at once, they helped set the bar and actually won a ring while doing it.

 

They were absolutely dominant and *are absolutely Hall of Fame worthy.

Not a very impressive list.

 

Zach Thomas? WTF?! He should not even be mentioned when it comes to the Hall of Fame.

 

Reggie Wayne, Richard Seymour? No.

 

Steve Hutchinson can wait. Alan Faneca, Bryant Young....meh.

 

I'm not as crazy about Troy Polamalu as others are, so be it.

 

Edgerrin James is a big maybe.

 

Steve Atwater, LeRoy Butler & John Lynch. That's a lot of Safeties. Probably deserving, but no way they all get in.

 

Sam Mills is deserving as is Tony Boselli.

 

Torry Holt was a damn good receiver, but so was Issac Bruce. I feel bad for former Rams great Henry Ellard, you could make a case for him had he not been on so many sub-par teams.

T.O. Was a classless jerk in full antagonism mode with the media and people around him

 

you gotta be a super super immortal to get in on first ballot in sports behaving like that

Polamalu and Boselli should go in. I am less convinced on the case for Hutchinson to be honest but maybe that is a bias against guards.... he was very good for about a decade. 

 

Torry Holt would be the receiver I'd put in if I had to take one of those guys but I banged the table for both Orlando Pace and Kurt Warner because I always felt it was those two and Faulk that made the Greatest Show on Turf go. 

 

Reggie Wayne will get in. It is inevitable. I'd be disappointed if he makes it as a first ballot guy. I think he should have to wait a few years.

that’s one side of the story I suppose.
 

Harrison was investigated and suspected of being involved in a street murder; didn’t hurt his chances of getting in on 1st ballot.
