Top 10 NFL Players Not in the Hall of Fame

The Contenders: Page 3

41 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.

42 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.

43 Cliff Harris

He's the only member of the first-team all-decade team of the 1970s on defense who is not in the Hall of Fame. He was named first-team all-pro four times and made six Pro Bowls in ten years in the league. The voters don't seem to understand what safeties do, given that several of the greatest safeties ever (Steve Atwater, Joey Browner) are not in the Hall. Pitiful that Harris is not there.

Cliff was a tremendous safety for the Cowboys dynasty in the seventies. Made big plays in some of the Cowboys biggest games. He should have been inducted years ago.

Another all decade memmber of 70's who belongs

Team of 70's

44 Deron Cherry

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

45 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.

46 Richmond Webb

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

47 Chuck Foreman

Was a great running back and exceptional receiver out of the backfield. Was Fran Tarkenton's security blanket. I would vote yes for Hall of Fame.

48 Shaun Alexander Shaun Alexander Shaun Edward Alexander is a former American football running back who played for the Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins of the National Football League.

Should get in Hall but will probably get in as a senior nominee.

I often hear the argument for Terrell Davis for the HOF, and I agree that he belongs. If this is the case Alexander should be considered. His career was short but he rushed for 100 career TD's. Short or long, that is a lot of touchdowns. His career included everything Davis accomplished except for the SB wins.

49 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.

50 Cliff Branch

Cliff Branch was the big play receiver for two Super Bowl Champion Raider teams. It is long past due for Branch to join the elite fraternity that is the HOF.

One of the best

51 Steve Wisniewski

Steve was an All-Pro offensive lineman for the Raiders and was one of the best of his generation. his postseason accolades compare very will with other lineman already entrenched in the HOF. Tough nosed and intimidating and well respected among his peers.

52 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...

Jerry Smith deserves to be inducted into the Hall
of Fame. He Played TE for the Redskins
from 1965-77. He retired with 60 touchdown receptions, which was more than any
player to play that position until Shannon Sharpe broke the mark 27 years later. Indeed, Smith’s stats
match or exceed many of the eight tight ends who are enshrined in the Hall. Smith had 421 catches for 5,496 yards. That's
more receptions than three Hall-of-Fame tight ends, and only six fewer than
Mike Ditka caught. Smith’s receiving yards also surpass three inductees.


He has two fewer
touchdowns than Sharpe. But Smith’s total is eight more than Dave Casper, 13
more than Ozzie Newsome, 15 more than Kellen Winslow, 17 more than Ditka, 20
more than Jackie Smith, 22 more than John Mackey and 29 more than Charlie
Sanders. The numbers speak for themselves.
He was selected to the Pro Bowl 2x and runner up in Super Bowl VII…


Reminder that he played
when the ...more

53 Jamarcus Russell Jamarcus Russell JaMarcus Trenell Russell is a former American football quarterback. He played college football at LSU, where he finished 21–4 as a starter and was named MVP of the 2007 Sugar Bowl.

WHAT?! This guy was terrible! - thomwim

54 Pat Fisher

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

A hard hitting cornerback with over 50 ints.

55 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

56 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

Beast mod

57 Wes Chandler

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

58 Lamar Lundy

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

59 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.

A bust,what is he doing on this list!

60 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.

I think Bryant Young was the best DT of all-time
