Jerry Kramer was nominated for the Football Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility in 1974.  Over thirty five years later he is still waiting from that call from Canton, Ohio. Jerry Kramer was a bruising offensive lineman who was part of seven championship Green Bay Packer teams; including the first two Super Bowls.  He was the key…
Considered one of the top Running Backs in the 2000’s LaDainian Tomlinson exploded onto the NFL season after reignited the Football Program at TCU.   Tomlinson would hit the 1,000 mark in Yards Rushing in his first eight seasons, and in 2006 and 2007 he was the NFL Leader in that category.  Tomlinson was the consensus MVP of the NFL in…
Although we don’t have Chuck Howley at the number one spot we can argue that he is hands down the most disrespected on our football list.  We don’t feel that way because he has not been inducted; we feel that we because he has never made the ballot!
A member of the Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl XL winning team, Alan Faneca stabilized Pittsburgh’s Offensive Line that gave Ben Roethslisberger a lot of time to throw and Jerome Bettis a lot of room to do his magic. Faneca went to nine Pro Bowls and earned six First Team All Pro selections. The former LSU Tiger would also win the…
With nine members of the 1970’s Pittsburgh Steelers already in the Football Hall of Fame, you would think that the team that won four Super Bowls in that decade would be sufficiently represented in Canton.  Some have said that they have the right amount, but the wrong representatives.  Those people point to L.C. Greenwood as the omission.As a member of…
Hands down, this has to be the most interesting player on this list to seek entry into Canton is Terrell Owens. Statistically speaking, T.O. has the resume. As of this writing, he is number two in Receiving Yards, third in Receiving Touchdowns and sixth in receptions. He had seasons as a dominating player, earning five First Team All Pro nods…
Coming out of Clemson in 1996, Brian Dawkins would become the star of the Philadelphia Eagles Secondary, and the Eagles Defense itself.  The Eagles appeared in four consecutive NFC Championship games, much of which was due to the play of Dawkins, who is a member of the 20/20 (Sacks/Interceptions) club.  He would statistically record a very impressive tally of 26…
We are not going to lie. The ranking of Torry Holt was not easy, and was such to the point that we could easily see where Holt could be ranked much higher or lower; as always, we want to hear what you think. With that said, Holt may not have accumulatively did better than his peers at the Wide Receiver…
There are many people who have said that Johnny Robinson is one of the greatest safeties to ever play in the modern era.  He was certainly among the best to play in the old American Football League as he was voted to all AFL team.Johnny Robinson was a converted Wide Receiver who adapted to the role of Safety effortlessly.  Robinson…
Long before Jason Taylor was in “Dancing With the Stars”, Jason Taylor was a major defensive superstar mostly with the Miami Dolphins.  Taylor would retire as the All Time leader in Fumble Return Touchdowns with six, and would also lead the NFL in Quarterback Sacks in 2002.

A very strong case can be made to justify the induction of Roger Craig to the Football Hall of Fame.  This makes it all the more bizarre that the powerful Running Back had to wait ten years to even get nominated.There could be no doubt that during his prime that Roger Craig was an integral part of every offensive play. …
The Denver Broncos first became a team that was first feared when their defense became the “Orange Crush” in the late 70’s.  Many have credited linebacker, Randy Gradishar with being the heart and soul of that famed defense.Gradishar was a tackling machine and won the 1978 Defensive Player of the Year.  He consistently went to the Pro Bowl and was…
Minus ten points for being Webster’s dad, but gaining it all back for his role as “Mongo”, Alex Karras actually had a successful acting career.  Since we aren’t ranking athletes turned actors (yet) we will focus on his gridiron career, which was quite remarkable. Alex Karras always seemed to follow his own path.  His tumultuous College run at Iowa showcased…
In 1999, the Indianapolis Colts were criticized for selecting Edgerrin James fourth in the draft when Ricky Williams was still available. That criticism ended as soon as they saw him play. In his first year, James was the NFL’s leading rusher and was a First Team All Pro. He would again win the rushing title in his second season, though…
Seriously, how can you not want a football player whose nickname was Dr. Doom in the Hall of Fame?  For just that moniker alone we want to build a statue in his honor.  Seriously though, nickname or not, Robert Brazile was one hell of a linebacker.Almost immediately as a pro, Brazille was used as the anchor of the 3-4 defense. …
Bill Walsh’s West Coast Offense is very popular now, but despite the geographic name, it was actually executed first in Cincinnati by Ken Anderson. Ken Anderson was a lifetime Bengal who set passing records for the franchise.  He was incredibly accurate and mastered the short yardage pass.  On four occasions he led the league in Quarterback Rating and in 1982…
At present only John Elway is in the only representative in the Football Hall of Fame from their late 90’s back to back Super Bowls.  It should not be forgotten that their defense had a lot to do with those wins and a big part of that Broncos “D’” was Steve Atwater.Atwater played at Free Safety, but he was far…
It was easy to forget just how good Kevin Mawae was. Despite lasting sixteen seasons in the NFL and making eight Pro Bowls, he was not spoken of often in terms of being one of the great Offensive Linemen of his era. This may because he wasn’t flashy and because he didn’t seek attention, but he was one of the…
If anyone could make a Hall of Fame case for what was essentially a four year career, it could be Terrell Davis.  His first four years in the Mile High City was the standard by which all Running Backs strived for.  Sadly, Davis would become one of the biggest career “what if’s” as injuries took him out of his Hall…
