You just gave me a great idea. Lets hire James Cameron, and start a studio called Warpath Films. It seems like all through the history of the NFL if you have pretty highlights you get called a great player. We'll make Portis tripping on running plays look epic and insure a trip to Canton for CP26.

Heck I wouldn't be surprised if one day Vick got elected to the Hall of Fame. Announcers will speak of how he revolutionized the game....maybe dog fighting but football?

Still I don't mind Swann getting into the Hall. It was the election of John Stallworth that made me scratch my head. Also it's not like we're the only ones that had doubts about Namath and Bradshaw. Both were like 3rd or 4th ballot hall of famers.

Like I said before. I know it was a different game before but plenty of QB's put up respectable numbers in that era. I just feel like if Swann got in on a couple of postseason highlights then it's possible that Namath got in on the big guarantee.

It really is scary though. There might be QB's in the future that will make our kids ask "why is that Peyton guy in the hall of fame? He doesn't even have a career 130 QB rating?"

Yeah, it's a passing league now more than ever. Especially with the rule changes that make defending the pass more and more difficult. Points are sexy and they sell.

And this year they also win. Look at the two teams in the Super Bowl.

Glad Grimm got in, hopefully this will help Jacoby. Interesting point about GC (Clark)getting into the Hall he posted better numbers w/average QB's. Within the next 3 yrs B-Mitch will have his name called.

He does have great returner numbers, but they are not getting him into the hall of fame. The returners of the past decade broke all of his returns for tds records. First it was Dante Hall then D. Hester , and now Joshua Cribbs.

I don't see BMitchel as being deserving to be a HOFer. I don't think he will ever get mentioned.

I'm a fan of the guy too guys. He did great things for us back in the day, but he isn't deserving of the NFL HOF.

Ha ha, not so long as Peter King is on the selection committee.

Re: Russ Grimm Elected Into Hall of Fame Class of 2010

Brian Mitchell is #2 in all purpose yards in the history of the NFL, how can he not be up for a HOF vote? He paved the road for the Dante Halls, Devin Hesters and Joshua Cribbs of today and yesterday.

Im not sure about BM getting in . KO returns are usually 20 yards before contact with a defender . Had BM had a few big years on Offense , maybe ?

Just reserved my hotel. Looking forward to another road trip to Canton, though I suspect there will be a lot of Cowboy fans this time around. Would be nice if Redskin fans would show up -- like Steeler fans at FedEx.

Skins fans dominated Canton when Green & Monk got in, I think we'll show up strong again for Grimm

I have no problem with B Mitch getting in. Realistically, though, he was primarily a special teamer and those folks always get snubbed. For example, Ray Guy is arguably the greatest special teamer to ever play the game and he is still waiting for his Canton invitation.
