that was totally different. the old owner was loved by the fans and won. the current owner is not loved by the fans and has lost.

To illustrate your point, was anyone at the 49ers game where Chris Hanburger got his ring at half time and started off by thanking Snyder for the courtesy he had shown Chris?

Beathard and Snyder couldn't agree on scouting staff, Bobby wanted his own while Snyder wanted the existing staff at the time.

Re: Hall of Fame Class of 2012

Rickey Sanders should be in for this record alone: Most touches of the football of any player without a fumble during his career.

Please explain...

Bobby Beathard was not coming back to be the GM for the Redskins - - or to have any other executive position - - in 2004 when Gibbs 2.0 began. In fact, the reason Beatherd "left" the Redskins is that he and Gibbs had a falling out and got into a power struggle starting in the late 80s. Jack Kent Cooke had to make a decision on which guy would leave town and he kept Gibbs not Beathard.

I am sure that the pissing contests between those two guys has died down over the years but they are not BFFs...

C. Kennedy, W. Roaf & Parcells are my bets, several others I'm on the fence on. Really weak class of RBs, the O line candidates are strong. Haley will be hard to deny, except for the fact the dude was crazy! C. Carter & T. Brown will both get in, but not both at this time.

Mann is our best candidate overall, but he's got some tough competition. Jacoby I think is going to suffer from comparison to modern day, quick foot OTs & he could never block LT or Banks. B. Mitchell is only in the conversation as a returner, can't really say he deserves to be in.

I loved watching Curtis Martin run, he could bring it and was on pace to break Emmitt(run out of bounds or fold up like a tent) Smiths record when he got hurt. Martin was a good tough rb.

Re: Hall of Fame Class of 2012

Curtis Martin IMO deserves it. Watching him play growing up was awesome and I was pulling for him to break Moose Johnson and the Cowboy's OL's rushing record.....oh I mean Emmit Smith's record....

Also Roaf should have already been inducted and its nice to see Tim Brown as well.

How can you say Martin and Bettis are a "weak class"?

I am also not a Parcells fan. Look when he had real success - he had the HC in NE on his staff. When Bill B wasn't there, Parcells was average at best.

Those two might be the most deserving of the class. Bettis IMO is a good candidate. Martin was good, not great, and more than anything deserves credit for longevity. Not sure that's enough for the hall though.

Overall though, there are some RBs in that class that are nowhere near HOF level, e.g. Stephen Davis & Tikki Barber. Both were good players, but also fumble prone & were not consistenly great through their careers.

The Tuna won 2 super bowls in NY, went to another in NE, got the jets competitive, built a good team in Dallas that was competitive, & built a decent roster in Miami, though that's hard to see now.

I know Parcells had Belicheck for part of his career, but if you use that logic you can always downgrade anyone's success & Parcells had success w/out Belicheck.

Parcell belongs there, he beat the shit out of Bill Walsh more than once in the playoffs and almost killed Joe Montana.
