Who is the next Redskin to go to the HOF?

Now that the very deserving Art Monk and Darrell Green are in who's the next Redskin bound for the Hall of Fame?

Does Jim Lachey have a shot? Will another Hog make it? I know there are guys here much better suited to make that call and would like to hear what you guys think.

I think the next two would be Grimm and Bruce Smith.

I would love to see Dave Butz, Jacoby, or Mosely get some recognition.

Re: Who is the next Redskin to go to the HOF?

Joe Jacoby and Russ Grimm are probably the obvious choices

I'm not going to count Bruce Smith (and similar choices) because I don't necessarily think of him as a Redskin when looking at his career as a whole.

How about Brian Mitchell?

i agree with you about bruce smith, he's a bill, not a skin. it will be the same with jason taylor. i'm glad he's on the skins but when his time comes to go to the hall he'll be a dolphin.

i not sure if mitchell should be in the hall.

Re: Who is the next Redskin to go to the HOF?

With the splash that Donte Hall made and what Devin Hester has sustained for the last few years that puts Mitchell on the outside looking in. Mitchell a much better career than Hall, but I dont think we'll see him get in. 80's players is a toss-up to me Grimm and Jacoby. With our free agent history and subsequent lack of draft picks in the mid 90's-current it is tough to single out a player that might get in since we dont have too many legitamate franchise born and bred players.

If Portis gets to the 12000 yard mark it may be him, he could get to 9000 yards and over 70 Td's this year. If he averages 1100 yds a season with 8 td's over the next 4 years in a skins uniform hes looking at 12,100 career yards and 95 Td's and he will be 30 years old at the end of it. Good numbers plus factor in one of the best backs in years in picking up the blitz, and his nose for the end-zone you have a real arguement.

Compare to Ricky Watters who is a borderline HOF that will probably never get in:
10 yrs, 10600 yds, 78 rushing td's, 4248 rec yards, and 13 rec td's.
But a negative media image and sometimes reperesented as "soft".

Shaun Alexander:
7 yrs 9400 yds, 100 td's.. soft rep, and in career purgatory right now

If Portis maintains steady numbers over the next 4 years, he would set himself apart from Watters, and even Shaun Alexander I believe.

Re: Who is the next Redskin to go to the HOF?

Not my favorite redskin but I think Chris Samuels will be the next redskin.

Jacoby and Grimm are much more deserving.
Mitchell also deserves to get in.

At one point, I thought Gary Clark deserved it too.

The Squirer John Kent Cooke or Bobby Beathard. Owners and GM's get voted in.

Nice post and good argument. If Portis sustains this level of play for another 6 years he'll land extremely high up on the NFL all-time rushing list. Health is a big factor there, of course.

A ring would look good for his candidacy though!

Good point about Samuels....I was thinking which one of the current Redskins would be HOF worthy. I can see Cooley having an HOF career...I must say that sometimes he is overshadowed by the likes of Alge Crumpler (when he was in ATL), Shockey, and Jason Witten.

Re: Who is the next Redskin to go to the HOF?

I think it'd probably be Samuels if anyone.. I don't see any of the Hogs getting in, which is pretty ridiculous IMO.

Portis will probably have HOF numbers but unless he wins a couple of SB and/or wins a few rushing titles and/or makes 3-4 Pro Bowls he won't make it. When looking at RB of his 'era' the names Tomlinson, Bettis, Alexander and Barber (ugh) will be mentioned before him for the HOF.
