Top 10 NFL Players Not in the Hall of Fameolhrocks
The Contenders: Page 2XW
2017 should be John Lynch's year. Super Bowl champion, made the pro bowl in his 15TH YEAR, nine time pro bowler, 3 First team All-pro, AND Defensive back of the year in 2000.
He played from 1993 to 2007. He was amazing.
Big time hitter in one of the best team defenses last decade. Still productive at the end of his career in Denver. Career and reputation was very similar to Atwater.
How is he not in?V5 Comments
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.V2 Comments
Worst Bust! Worst ever draft pick! Horrible quarterback!
He is truly the best player of our generationV3 Comments
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.
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.V1 Comment
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.
Not before players like Johnny Robinson, Steve Atwater, Cliff Harris and Jake Scott.V1 Comment
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.V4 Comments
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 VikingsV2 Comments
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.V3 Comments
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.
Definitely belongsV2 Comments
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.
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.
Richmond was a great tackle charged with protecting Marino's blind side. Played in many Pro Bowls.
Until DeMarcus Ware broke The Cowboys sack record, Harvey Martin held the mark. He was a dominating DE during the Cowboys of the seventies and early eighties. He had the goods to be considered for the HOF.
Another player hurt by short career
HOFamer Ronnie Lott admits Kenny Easley was the best safety from his generation. Short career but dominant. Long overdue for HOF recognition. Played for Seahawks team that overcame years of poor play to rise as a dominant defense.
Kenny Easley was just nominated as the senior canidate for the class of 2017. Honestly many Senior Canidates deserve it more than him, including: Randy Gradishar, Jerry Kramer, Ken Anderson, Chuck Howley, Alex Karras, and Jim Marshall. He didn't play long enough and he didn't have the best stats. His own team "accidently" made him retire by giving him to much Advil when he was injured. One of his kidneys had to be taken out because of it. Two years later when he did get a new kidney, no one from his seahawks team congratulated him. He was a big hitter who the voters felt sorry for and now are trying ton get him in the Hall of Fame.
Should have made it in his first year of eligibility
Why is Ladainian Tomlinson 37! He had 31 touchdowns in one season! He should make it in this year with: Randy Gradishar, Terrell Owens, Joe Jacoby, John Lynch, and Jason Taylor.
Only 29! How? One of the greatest RB backs of all time. He deserves nothing short than number 1. Unless the voters go insane, he should make it in this year with: Randy Gradishar, Terrell Owens, Brian Dawkins, and Kurt Warner.V1 Comment
Belonged in the HOF years ago, but not many post season honors may be keeping him out.V1 Comment
Very underrated. The retired leader of the bears defense
He was awesome. Play maker. Tackling machine. Leader. When he left defense not the same.
He was a machine for the Bears in that entire 2000's decade. - htoutlaws2012V3 Comments
