Too blue collar a guy? He's a skin and we know how that works?

I always loved that guy--of course, we all thought it was "Hamburger" as kids, but that just made it cooler.

I firmly believe that you have to be a "Blow your own horn" kind of guy.

Numbers 55 and 81 were just a hard working, gt it done kind of player.

Aint fair.

Let's get Chris Hanburger into the Hall of Fame! Now that Art Monk has been inducted, Redskins fans need to focus their attention and energy on the next most qualified Redskin for the Hall of Fame. That player is NOT Russ Grimm, Joe Jacoby, Gary Clark, Larry Brown, Jerry Smith or Pat Fischer. I love all those players, but the player most qualified for induction is Chris Hanburger! Nine-time Pro Bowler. Four-time All Pro. 1972 NFC Defensive Player of the Year on the Redskins first Super Bowl team. Handpicked by George Allen to call defensive signals for one of the best defenses in the NFL during the 1970's. Let's not forget those last two facts! Everyone mentions the Pro Bowl number (9), but most people forget that he was NFC Defensive Player of the year in 1972 and George Allen's defensive signal caller for 5 years! The NFL Network recently ran an NFL Films special on the 10 best players not in the Hall of Fame. The 10 players they picked were Ken Anderson, Steve Tasker, Alex Karras, Ricky Watters, Ken Stabler, Bob Hayes, Jim Marshall, Chris Carter, Derrick Thomas and Jerry Kramer. Most of those players (except Tasker and Watters) should probably be in the Hall of Fame, but Chris Hanburger is more qualified than anyone on that list except Chris Carter, and none of them has as many combined Pro Bowl and All-Pro selections (13) as Hanburger. Of all the former players who are eligible to be selected by the Veterans Committee, Chris Hanburger is by far the strongest candidate in the field! Let's put an end to this gross oversight and get Chris Hanburger inducted!

Great points BigMac . He should be in the HOF with K. Houston ,,, and soon to follow should be P. Fisher . I would bet that most of the writers / members of the HOF selection commitee have never seen Hanberger play . That along with the fact that LB's were not used as pass rushers like todays 3-4 outside backers , thus not getting the sack #'s hurt guys like CH . Had we won a Super Bowl , he would be in . I do think he and Fisher with make it in ,,, as will Jacoby and Grimm .

My dad asked the same question to me when we were driving home from the Hall of Fame this weekend. I'm not quite old enough to remember him...but dad says he was definitely one of the best and surely deserving!

We need to start righting letters and sending videos to the HOF election committee. It may take some time, but it finally got Art Monk into the HOF, maybe it would work for Hanburger.

Hey, lets not stop with CH, because Gary Clarks numbers are just as good as Michael Irvins and you can't say they didn't game plan for him.

There is no logical reason why he isn't. Always loved watching him make plays.

Probably because no one who is not a Skins fan remembers him.

How can a great name like that escape anyone's memory?
