No Emmitt, no Aikman, no Irvin, no Woodson, no Larry Allen, NO ONE.

It's a miracle Tony Dorsett got in.


You really thought that Irvin would get in on his first ballot?

Im sure not surprised. If Monk STILL isnt in, why should Irvin get in on his first?

Ah hell, ill just admit. I pay the voters to make sure no cowboys get in, as i pay the refs every eagles game. Im sorry, ill stop doing it. I swear. End of story.

Friedman played at a time when not only the ball (which was shaped more like a watermelon) worked against him but so did offensive philosophies and defensive rules. Despite the rougness of the game at that time, Friedman never missed a game. From 1927-30 Friedman threw for 50 percent more yardage than the next-best passer in the league and more than twice as many touchdowns. Wellington Mara once described Friedman as "the Johnny Unitas of his day", and Red Grange said that Friedman was "the greatest passer that ever lived"...
IMO Friedman should have been elected to the Hall of Fame decades earlier, and it's nice to see him get in with another very deserving old-timer...


That was a really nice read. Nice one, hankey. I think Friedman deserved to get in along with Young and Marino. I'm just stunned that greats like Art Monk, Derrick Thomas and Michael Irvin aren't joining them. I am pretty confident Irvin will get in soon. If DT were to go in, I figured this was the year it would have happened. Now I'm a little skeptical. Monk is just killing me though. That guy was amazing and when he retired, he was easily in the top 3 of every statistical category for wideouts. Just a shame he isn't in yet.

Maybe Deion can at least still get in since he spent half his career with other teams besides Dallas.

Of course Benny Friedman deserves to be in the hall! If not for his work with Detroit, then for the fine job he did playing a phsychiatrist on MASH. :-b

But seriously, he does still hold an NFL record. (I'm pretty sure) He holds the record for the only QB to lead his team in passing and rushing TDs for a season. 1927 I believe.

You are right, but he didn't only lead his team in passing and rushing TDs for a season (there are probably a few more QBs who accomplished that feat), he led the NFL. I think it was in 1928 though.

So one REALLY good year and three other good ones make HOF material? Maybe we should put Joe Charboneau and Mark Fidrych in the baseball HOF. A better example would be Denny McLain - he had a monster 31 win season plus a few other good ones, but isn't in the HOF.

A HOF should be HARD to get into otherwise you cheapen it. I remember years where 7 guys got into the football HOF - give me a break.

Besides I never liked that psychiatrist on MASH - those were the episodes where Alan Alda gets all weepy until you want to kick his ass around the room and tell him to get a grip. :-)
