Re: Hall of Fame 2009 Nominee List

i'd say bm has no real shot. i mean 23k special teams yards is nice and all, but if he were a better player, he wouldn't have been relegated like that... AND comparing his TD production to devin hester's isn't very impressive either.

John Randle and Bruce Smith are a lock.

Re: Hall of Fame 2009 Nominee List

My picks for getting in:

Russ Grimm
Bruce Smith
Shannon Sharpe
Clay Matthews
Darren Woodson
Ray Guy



Of course, we know the voters are on crack sometimes (Mike Irvin reference for getting in before Monk).

I thought only five get in each year.

Re: Hall of Fame 2009 Nominee List

I think Hall voters need to stop ignoring the contributions of special teams players. It's just ridiculous that someone like Ray Guy can't get a sniff of the Hall. B-Mitch is definitely deserving based on his overall play. The guy could do it all.

Re: Hall of Fame 2009 Nominee List

By Peter King's logic, Shannon Sharpe doesn't deserve it because he was surpassed by Tony Gonzalez as the all-time yardage, receptions, and TD leader.

Without doing the research I'm just not sure about Jesse Armstead. Sure, a solid player, but HOF worthy?

A case could be made for him. He's a 5 time Pro Bowl player and his stats are pretty solid. In his prime he was one of the better players at his position. I doubt he would get in but his resume is quietly better than some might realize.

Re: Hall of Fame 2009 Nominee List

Surprised not to see Dave Butz anywhere on that list.

And if you go by numbers alone, Gary Clark deserves to be in -- especially when you consider the paltry numbers of Lynn Swann.
