Darrell Green and the Hall of Fame?

Does anyone know when Darrell is eligible for the HOF?

I would think he would be a first ballot guy. Do you?

Re: Darrell Green and the Hall of Fame?

I think he is eligible next year.

My buddy (Giants Fan) thinks he is a first Ballot HOFer. You don't usually hear that kind of talk from Rival fans. I am not sure if he is first ballot or not, but he belongs in the hall.

Re: Darrell Green and the Hall of Fame?

I cannot imagine that he would not be a first balloter. I mean he was the best CB in the league during his prime. Add the fastest man wins and he has the aura too. I think that is the one thing missing from Monk. He never had an aura because he was so quiet. Well except to Skins fans.

Re: Darrell Green and the Hall of Fame?

There are some who will say he played for 20 years, has only 54 INTs and went to the pro-bowl just 7 times.

Re: Darrell Green and the Hall of Fame?

He does have some "trademark" plays:
Chasing down Dorsett.
Punt return hurdle for TD in the playoffs.

Re: Darrell Green and the Hall of Fame?

Green is very open and expressive unlike Monk.


Plus people hear about Green because of his charity too.

Re: Darrell Green and the Hall of Fame?

He should make it first ballot. He was a phenomenal player. Plus people argue that as the years go by Monk's numbers look less impressive (I don't agree but whatever) I don't think you can make the argument that as the years go by Green's career looks less impressive.

yeah, I meant like the playoffs, or a trip to the superbowl...I'm just glad he didn't pull a deon and try to finish his career elsewhere...Darrell was class all the way

Re: Darrell Green and the Hall of Fame?

He was the original shutdown corner before Deion. He has plenty of memorable moments like someone already mentioned. Plus his world famous speed is a big part of his legacy. I'd really, really be shocked if he didn't get in first ballot.

Re: Darrell Green and the Hall of Fame?

Now that I think about it, didn't Peter King write in an article that Darrell Green was a first ballot hall-of-famer if he ever saw one, or something to that nature

Re: Darrell Green and the Hall of Fame?

Love me some D. Green. What a career. I remember seeing him get burnt a fair share of times, but he learned to play w/in himself & only gamble when he was a step ahead.
No doubt he should be considered a 1st ballot guy. I agree w/most of the posts here. Somebody mentioned his speed. This is his legacy; maybe the fastest football player EVER!
I'm not exaggerating. From 85 -87 I think it was, the nfl had a "fastest man in the nfl competition" w/a 60 yd. sprint & DG smoked the competition each time. He ran about 6.01 - 6.05 each time. Who was the competition? Willie Gault & Ron Brown, both Olympic gold medalists on the 1984 4x100 team, and Renaldo Nehemiah, gold medalist in the 110m high hurdles.
What's so impressive about this is that Green had played football & taken so many hits over the years, while these guys were track guys (and they were bigger) who had taken time off from football.
