The Contenders: Page 2

21 Jimmy Smith

Too much wide receiver competition. Will always be lumped together with receivers like, Irving Fryar, Henry Ellard and Mushin Muhammed.

22 Chuck Howley

The greatest cowboys linebacker ever. he was on the doomsday defense with Darren Woodson, who also should get inducted soon

The only super bowl mvp for the losing team. he was part of the doomsday defense

This guy defined the weak side linebacker! 6 time pro bowler, 5 time first team all pro! Not a good linebacker, a great one!

He did not play with Darren Woodson...but should be in Hall

23 Mark Gastineau

Tons of flash and for three or four years was an exceptional pass rusher who was pitiful vs. The run. I have him on the outside looking in.

24 Ricky Watters

Career was marred by selfishness and inability to stay in one place any length of time. Stats did not always translate to wins for his franchises.

I feel he is underrated because of the teams he played for.

One of the best all around running backs of all time.

His attitude hurts him more than his play helps

25 L.C. Greenwood

If it were not for so many Steelers he would have already been elected. He and Donnie Shell get the shaft as a result.

A valuable member of the steel curtain.

L.C. greenwood needs to be in the Hall.

It's been long enough, he deserves a spot in Canton.

26 Johnny Robinson

Best safety of his generation. Overlooked due to career in AFL. Deserves to be in the Hall!

Over 50 interceptions, Super Bowl champion and one of the best complete safety's.

Probably the greatest AFL player not in

Should have been in long ago

27 Leslie O'Neal

Leslie O'Neal is very underrated. He has as many sacks as Lawrence Taylor.

A very specialized pass rusher, not great against the run, but I would say he compares favorably to Fred Dean and Richard Dent and they are both in the HOF.

28 Randall Cunningham Randall Cunningham Randall W. Cunningham is a former American football quarterback in the National Football League and current football coach and pastor.

People voting obviously don't know too much about old NFL players, learn your history children.

Cunningham was a great player to watch. I liked him best on the Vikings

29 Tommy Nobis

Tommy was a big time LB for the Falcons during an era when linebackers were the face of football. He was a big time hitter who covered ground from sideline to sideline. He should have been inducted to the HOF years ago.

30 Otis Taylor

One of the best receivers of the old AFL

31 Irving Fryar

Had a great second act in his career. May have been more of a threat in his thirties than his twenties. Never see him getting the love for the HOF unless senior committee sees his career differently when he gets on that ballot years from now.

Irving Fryar is on the list, but not Jason Taylor, Brian Dawkins, and Alan Faneca. Kevin Mawae also didn't get included on this list.

32 Brain Mitchell

Special teamers have found tough sledding when it comes to the HOF. Not sure he ever gets there, but I would vote for him before Steve Tasker.

33 Leroy Butler

Not before players like Johnny Robinson, Steve Atwater, Cliff Harris and Jake Scott.

34 Drew Pearson

I find it hard I believe the man who caught the first Hail Mary pass isn't in the hall of fame. He was a part of arguably one of the greatest plays in football history. He has to go in.

Has been lost over time, but he was every bit as good as John Stallworth, Lynn Swann and Charlie Joiner. Hard to tell the story of the Dallas Cowboys without including Drew Pearson. He would get my vote.

35 Torry Holt

Some of the most reception yards of all time

Torry Holt & Isaac Bruce make it tough on each other

I like his teammate Isaac Bruce as a better candidate. That Rams group is not getting a lot of love currently for HOF with only Faulk and Aneas Williams. Pace, Warner, Holt and Bruce have all been on the outside looking in.

36 Phil Simms

Not a lot of love but things would be different if he started and won the Super Bowl that Hostetler Won.

Should be a HOFer. Top 15 in all time wins. One of the greatest Super Bowl performances of all time.

37 Terrell Owens Terrell Owens Terrell Eldorado Owens is an American football wide receiver who last played for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League.

Even with all of his shenanigans, he will get in some day ut don't be surprised if there is a wait involved.

Terrell Owens is one of the most well known characters in football

Terrell Owens deserves more, he was a great football player. And the best part was when he knead down in cowboys stadium

He should make it

38 Scott Studwell

Not a decent enough career, but it is amazing that between Alan Page, Carl Eller, Jim Marshall and Studwell, they never won a Super Bowl.

Jim Marshall's partner on the doomsday defense.

He has the 2nd most tackles ever and isn't even in.

39 Deron Cherry

Exceptional safety during the eighties. He will need some love from the Seniors Pool.

40 Albert Lewis

Was a excellent cover corner for Kansas City and an incredible special teams contributor. If you look at his career numbers he should be Hall worthy.
