Reed, Reed, Reed... and whoever else. To slight Andre Reed again would be a disgrace. He is well deserving though he might not say it himself; he should be in this year! Numbers are well above Carter and Brown in post-season play. Easy in!
Fail. There is no logical argument for either Kennedy or Doleman. Doleman closer then Kennedy. Kennedy would frequently disappear during games, especially big ones. No where near HOF material right there. I wouldn't have him in the top 500. Not kidding. Just an epic fail. No excuse for this level of fail. Congrats to the others though. No Parcells? No Williams?
Its the Buses time 5th all-time leading rusher 1 SB and the only big back in the top ten nuff said!!!!
Andre Reed no way!!!! Never had back to back 1000 yd seasons.Total choke in the Super Bowls.Tim Brown had nine consecutive 1000 yd seasons with many average at best QB's throwing him the ball.Brown also never had another top wideout next to him until Jerry Rice the last 3 years of his career,yet put up huge numbers even though defences knew he would be getting the ball.As for those who say he never had a signature moment or catch,his consistency was his hallmark-the fact that he could always be counted on.Same was said about Steve Largent and the answer is they pass the eyeball test-when you saw them play,you could see how special they were-HOF worthy.Reed does not meet this criteria.Brown WAY BEFORE Reed.
I am hoping it will be Reed this year. I think his time has come!!
HOF 2012 = Andre Reed.
I look forward to being there for the Enshrinement of Andre Reed, Tim Brown,Chris Carter, Jerome Bettis,Willie Roaf and Bill Parcells.
Gee, I don't know ABouwkamp, maybe because he is the 6th all time leading rusher in league history. That could have something to do with it.
Why so much love for Bettis? To me he was just a useful, tough RB on a very popular team that won a lot of SB's. Unfortunatly, the one he has a ring from will forever be tainted. I don't get it. Martin deserves it more than him if you look at career stats. Martin just never got the almighty SB ring. Too much emphasis is placed on the SB. A player cannot help it if the rest of their team isn't good enough to win. JMO.
Reed, Carter, and Kennedy had better get in before Bettis does. Just sayin...If this happens I lose whatever ounce of respect I have left for the NFL.
How about instituting a separate election process every two years to consider coaches, owners, contributors, officials, and any other non-players. Set a minimum and maximum number who can qualify at this election - maybe two to four per election? Trying to compare their contributions to the game versus those of players is an apples to oranges comparison and it must make it very tough on the judges. There is always the problem of addressing the backlog of deserving players each year, so very few of the non-players ever get elected. They are put on the back burner. This process would also free up the judges to elect more deserving players in the player elections. Also consider this... the Baseball Hall of Fame has a few umpires in it. When will the Pro Football Hall of Fame recognize outstanding officials? The additional election process proposed here would help address this issue too.
My votes would be Bettis, Brown, Carter, Martin, Parcells and Reed. Although in reality there are so many who deserve the Hall that aren't in. Why is that?? Too Tall Jones, Larry Allen, Morten Andersen and many more!
i am excited for the announcement on the 4th. hopefully the selection of men entering into the hall will be worthy, honourable, and proud to be apart of a great weekend in august. also, maybe the enshrinement activities are available to everyone and not just people over 21. the love of football is for all ages. thank you.
Andre Reed, need i say more!!
