Here we are in the National Football League playoffs but for us that it means it is time to discuss the potential class of the 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame.  The Finalists have been announced, and along with regular contributor, Spheniscus, we will go back and forth with each candidate and openly debate as to which player would be a worthy Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee. Committee Chairman: Spheniscus, I know what I just said about Tony Boselli, but I feel so much different about Terrell Davis.  Yes he had a short career, but it was so explosive and with all due respect to John Elway and the rest of the Denver Broncos, they don’t win back-to-back Super Bowls without him.

7. Terrell Davis http://www.notinhalloffame.com/football/top-50-football-players-by-franchise/top-50-denver-broncos/10617-7-terrell-davis http://www.notinhalloffame.com/football/top-50-football-players-by-franchise/top-50-denver-broncos/10617-7-terrell-davis 7. Terrell Davis
Nowadays, it is expected that if you don't accumulate at least 10,000 Yards as a Running Back that a Hall of Fame slot won't likely come your way.  That line of thinking wasn't much different in the late, and early '00s, but then most Running backs never had a three year stretch of dominance like Terrell Davis did.

The Pro Football HOF Announces their 2017 Class http://www.notinhalloffame.com/home/news/8206-the-pro-football-hof-announces-their-2017-class http://www.notinhalloffame.com/home/news/8206-the-pro-football-hof-announces-their-2017-class The Pro Football HOF Announces their 2017 Class
Normally, the Pro Football Hall of Fame is relatively easy to forecast as they don’t normally have surprises, but with this year’s class, we are a little befuddles with some of this year’s selections, or rather this year’s snubs. Let’s start with who got in.

Our All-Time Top 50 Denver Broncos are now up http://www.notinhalloffame.com/home/news/10722-our-all-time-top-50-denver-broncos-are-now-up http://www.notinhalloffame.com/home/news/10722-our-all-time-top-50-denver-broncos-are-now-up Our All-Time Top 50 Denver Broncos are now up
Yes, we know that this is taking a while! As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team.  We have a new one to unveil today, that of the Denver Broncos.  The Nets were formed in 1960, as a charter member of the American Football League.  While the fanbase proved to be strong, the play on the field was not, and they had little to no success in the 1960s.  The first few seasons when they migrated to the NFL saw the same result, but a developing “Orange Crush” Defense, took them to Super Bowl XII.  They came up short, but it was a start. The Broncos would trade for the number one pick in 1983, John Elway, and it would usher in a wave of success in Mile High.  Elway took the Broncos to three AFC Championships in the 1980s, but they were unable to convert that success into a Super Bowl ring.  This changed in the 90s, when Elway gained a prime offensive weapon in Terrell Davis, and the two would win Super Bowl back-to-back in the 1997 and 1998 season, ending the anxiety of Broncos fans. Denver would again sign a Hall of Fame Quarterback, though in Peyton Manning, it was at the end of his career.  The Broncos went to Super Bowl XLVIII, but were thrashed by the Seattle Seahawks. In Manning’s last year, he did enough for them to win Super Bowl 50, though that was more on the strength of their defense. As for all of our top 50 players in football we look at the following:  1.  Advanced Statistics. 2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NFL. 3. Playoff accomplishments. 4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet. Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories. This list is updated up until the end of the 2018 Season. The complete list can be found here,but as always we announce our top five in this article.  They are: 1. John Elway 2. Randy Gradishar 3. ShannonSharpe 4. RodSmith 5. ChampBailey We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists.   Look for or All-Time Top 50 Carolina Panthers coming next! As always we thank you for your support.

Awards = HOF? Part Four: The Super Bowl MVP (NFL) http://www.notinhalloffame.com/blogs/from-the-desk-of-the-chairman/6322-awards-hof-part-four-the-super-bowl-mvp-nfl http://www.notinhalloffame.com/blogs/from-the-desk-of-the-chairman/6322-awards-hof-part-four-the-super-bowl-mvp-nfl Awards = HOF?  Part Four: The Super Bowl MVP (NFL)
We here at Notinhalloffame.com thought it would be fun to take a look at the major awards in North American team sports and see how it translates into Hall of Fame potential. Needless to say, different awards in different sports yield hall of fame potential.  In basketball, the team sport with the least amount of players on a roster, the dividend for greatness much higher.  In baseball, it is not as much as a great individual season does not have the same impact.
