Brian Mitchell Retires...Hall of Famer?

Moderator: Football Moderators

To answer your question, Mercer, Steve Tasker is not in the Hall of Fame. I think Mitchell does indeed belong in the Hall, as well as Tasker. But if the greatest punter of all-time, Ray Guy, can't get in, what chance does Mitchell really have?

I think he should definitely get in. If you're the best at any (positive) role in football, you belong in the HOF.

Pretty cool about him signing a one day contract with Washington so he can retire as a Redskin. I guess this might be a common practice and I just didn't know about it, but I hadn't heard of it before.

It happens all the time. Emmitt will do it, Steve Buerlein did it with the Panthers, and there are lots of other guys that do it as well.

Now that you mention it, I do remember something about Buerlein doing it, too.
