If They Retired Tomorrow...Who Makes The Hall Of Fame?

I think you have too many borderline cases. I loved having Vincent in Philly all these years, and he's a star player, but not quite hall of fame bound for sure, same goes for Law, though I think he's got a better shot.

McNair is one I would consider putting on the list actually. Most of the great QBs right now, are too young to include. Honestly, Brady needs just to put 1-2 more playoff worthy seasons under his belt before I'd say he goes. Otherwise, I think you could argue Kurt Warner merits consideration.

I think I'd have a very short list:

Favre
Manning

Consider: McNair

Bettis
Faulk
Martin
Emmit

Consider: George

Tim Brown
Isaac Bruce
Jerry Rice

Consider: TO, Moss, Marvin (1-2 more good years should do it)

Tony Gonzales

Consider: Freddie Jones

I don't really feel like fleshing out the rest right now, but I just think there can't be too many, because only so many make it each year, and though its very hard to see sometimes there is a difference between a star player and a HoF player.

Art Monk not being in the Hall of Fame is a joke. I'm still stumped by that omission.

Bettis and CMart are shoe-ins...they're 4th and 5th on the all-time rushing list...no doubt these guys are in.

I'm only going to include main offensive players and key defensive players, because I don't care very much about which centers or fullbacks get into the hall. Also, this list is based on stats throughout their NFl career, meaning that the people on my list would have to be int eh NFl for a long time. Here's my random, unorganized list.

Emmitt Smith
Marshall Faulk
Tim Brown
Simeon Rice
Drew Bledsode
Peyton Manning
Tom Brady
Terrell Owens
Randy Moss
Jerome Bettis
Curtis Martin
Brett Favre
Jerry Rice
Tony Gonzalez
Morten Anderson
Ray Lewis
Derrick Brooks
Deion sanders
Michael Strathan
Junior Seau
(Maybe) Derrick Brooks
Walter Jones
(Maybe) Sam Madison
Gary Anderson

Similar to the first list, but I took out some people that have no chance AT THIS POINT, liek Dillon or Bruce.

Team G ATT YDS. AVG TD

| TOTAL | 122 | 2210 9696 4.4 57

These are Dillon's career numbers. How does his guy not make it if he retires now? I realize he doesn't match up with guys who have been around longer, but the numbers are better than current Hall of Famers.

he hasn't stood out form other RB's in any way. JUst liek Jimmy Smith for WR's (See the Smith thread).

Dillon doesnt make it if he retires right now because he doesnt have 10,000 yards. At this point in time, 10,000 yards is the 500 home runs of football.

Explain why Gale Sayers is in the Hall of Fame...he doesn't even have 5,000 yards rushing.

That comparison is ridiculous. Sayers' career consisted of essentially four and a half seasons (with a 14-game-schedule). He was one of the most exciting and spectacular players in NFL history and is arguably the best running back of all-time.

You have to look beyond the numbers. Do you think that Joe Namath doesn't belong into the HOF either? He only has 27.663 passing yards, threw 47 more interceptions than touchdown passes and has a 65.5 career passer rating. Does this mean that Mark Brunell is a Hall-of-Famer?

Actually, I for one have thought that Namath doesn't belong in the HOF. I never could figure out why he is in there other than the fact that he "predicted" his team would win a Super Bowl and they did. So what. Every player should believe that his team will win when they play. No, I don't think Namath's career or numbers justify him being in there. I guess it was his "pretty boy" buddies in the media that only thought so.
