Can Tasker still make the HOF?

He doesn't belong in the Hall of Fame.

That's tough.

 

He was the very best at what he did, but a guy like Bennie Thompson was right there as a STer too.

Please check in here if you believe Tasker should be in and Eli shouldn’t. 
 

its called a homer test.

This wouldn't even be a debate if the Bills had won at least one SB.

NONSENSE

 

But he’ll have to buy a ticket like everyone else, I’m afraid. Even though it feels watered down at times, I still don’t see him as really belonging. Certainly worthy of consideration, but I just don’t see it.

Best at what, though?  How many Bills victories can one look back on and say, "damn, if it wasn't for Tasker, we'd have lost that one?"

I've said this many times before and I'll say it again because it is worth repeating, if Ray Guy got in Steve Tasker absolutely needs to get in.

I felt like after a punter got voted in that would’ve opened the door for Tasker getting in.

Some very dumb replies here.  If he wasn't the best at his position among his peers during his tenure in the NFL, then the answer is a definite NO!  Otherwise, one can only answer YES!

So trying to understand - the best ST player vs an average QB.

 

But,but,but Eli won 2 Super Bowls.  Then let in all SB winning QBs and players.

For his ST position, yes he does. If punters and kickers can get in, then so should someone who was unquestionably the best at what he did on the same unit.

Is that what they say about Ray Guy? And FWIW, happy to link you his highlight reels and then feel free to let us know :D

If only to stop the grown men who call into One Bills Live and preface every point w a “Hey Steve, by the way, it’s a shame you’re not in the HOF.”

The truth is that the entire NFL considers STs as the beaten rented mule of pro football, just is, and it reflects as such with examples like this. 

 

Go Bills!!!

I think Tasker is more deserving.

I’d like to see him in, and he’s probably more deserving than some guys already in there, but I just don’t know that they set that precedent. Yet. Ray Guy and the kickers touched the ball, scored points and were highly visible. Tasker is stuck in the no-man’s land between there and the invisible (hopefully) long snapper. It’s not that HE is not worthy, I just don’t think the game currently valued the POSITION and what he was doing. I’d like to see that change. Some guys get in just because they played 15 years, while never being great....just good for a really long time. 

 

I also wonder if he had had a few years of playing WR more regularly if that might change some people’s perception? Does he just need more “name recognition” and to be seen as something other than a gunner. I believe they felt he was actually MORE valuable as a gunner, but as I recalled he wasn’t bad when he got on the filed as a WR.

Can't say............he was that good. He lived in the shadows and made plays on ST.
