Top 10 NFL Players Not in the Hall of Fame

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Deron Cherry

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

42 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.

43 Richmond Webb

Richmond was a great tackle charged with protecting Marino's blind side. Played in many Pro Bowls.

44 Harvey Martin

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.

45 Kenny Easley

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.

46 Jerry Smith

Jerry Smith definitely belongs in the HOF. I was never a Skins fan, but this guy's record on the field cannot be dismissed, and that's supposed to count for something...

47 Clay Matthews Jr.
48 Pat Fisher

Belonged in the HOF years ago, but not many post season honors may be keeping him out.

49 Brian Urlacher

I have Brian Urlacher in 2018 class. I think that class has enough room for Ray Lewis and Urlacher.

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. - htoutlaws2012

50 Boomer Esiason

Just on the outside looking in. Thought there were years where he was exceptional and years where he was overrated.

The replacement for Ken Anderson.

Best play-action QB ever, not even a close second and he won a league MVP award

51 Wes Chandler

Not good enough. Fits in below Isaac Curtis, Stanley Morgan and Harold Carmichael and none of those guys are in the HOF.

52 Lamar Lundy

On the outside looking in and I don't see that changing.

53 Cade McNown

Yah, funny, I think Mark Sanchez should be in the Hall of Fame before him

Is this a joke. Let's put Rex Grossman in as well.

Nine seasons, one MVP, one Comeback Player, one Raiders Super Bowl.

54 Henry Ellard

If Lynn Swann is in, Henry should have gone in a long time ago! Henry Ellard has 13,777 career yards to Lynn's mediocre 5,462 career yards. Henry has seven 1,000 plus yard seasons! Lynn Swann has none! How did Lynn Swann get in the Hall of fame?

Henry Ellard was very, very good but like Irving Fryar it may take the Seniors pool to get him elected a long ways down the road.

People say Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt were the best Rams WRs, but many forget Ellard

55 Bryant Young

He is so underrated. he played from 1994 to 2007

Bryant Young had a lot of skill and should get in someday.

Hard to be underrated as a 49er, especially during their glory ears but this is the case for Young. He is a borderline HOFamer.

56 Jevon Kearse

Jevon Kearse had 14.5 sacks in his rookie season. That is a record that still stands today.

Jevon Kearse deserves Hall of Fame

His career fizzled out each year after his first two seasons. Not even the Hall of Very Good.

57 Zach Thomas

A great linebacker for the dolphins. he is the brother in law of legend Jason Taylor (he also played with Taylor for most of his career)

Very underrated linebacker but he reminds me of some of the LB's from the sixties and seventies that did not get elected until they entered the Senior Pool

Zach Thomas was amazing. My 2017 class: Alan Faneca, Terrell Owens, Ladanian Tomlinson, John Lynch, and Jason Taylor. Thomas has more tackles than anyone in the Hall of Fame. Randy Gradishar, who has the most tackles ever, isn't even in yet. I think he gets in the 2017 class as the Senior canidate.

58 Jason Elam

Holds kicking records many kicking yards possibly the greatest kicker of all time

Too many Kickers to pick before Elam and only one pure kicker has been elected to HOF.

59 Houston Antwine

Unfortunately played his whole career in the old AFL, but was one of the best defensive lineman during that time. Would have been a stalwart in either league. Played very similar to John Randle.

60 Ben Coates

The best receiving TE not in the hall of fame and was an exceptional blocker. 499 career TE receptions is among the top ten all-time for TE's
