One of the greatest defensive players in Sun Belt Conference history, DeMarcus Ware can also make a claim as one of the top defensive forces in the lore of the Dallas Cowboys.The latter says an awful lot, doesn’t it?
The Denver Broncos first became a team that was first feared when their defense became the “Orange Crush” in the late ’70s.  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…
There is a significant case to be made that the most disrespected player on this list is Chuck Howley.  We don’t feel that way because he has not been inducted; we feel that we because he has never made the ballot!
With ten 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…
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. …
We are not going to lie. The ranking of Torry Holt was not easy, and as 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 accumulated did better than his peers at the Wide Receiver…
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…
Lavvie Dilweg was a star at Marquette, and he would keep his athletic talents in the state of Wisconsin, as he signed with the Milwaukee Badgers in 1926. The stay in Milwaukee was short-lived as the team folded that year.  He would travel north and join the Green Bay Packers in 1927, an organization he played for until 1934.  Dilweg…
Drafted late in the First Round out of the University of Miami, Reggie Wayne was brought in to compliment Marvin Harrison.  It is safe to say that he accomplished a lot more than that.
The leader of the Tampa Bay secondary for over a decade, Ronde Barber had one of the most statistically impressive careers for a Cornerback in the history of Football. Barber is one of only two men to net more than 40 Interceptions and 20 Sacks and was the leader in Picks in 2001. He also holds the record for the…
Wide Receivers have exploded in terms of yardage but the ’70s did not feature a lot of game-breakers at that or any other position.  One of those exceptions was Cliff Branch who during the mid-’70s was one of the most explosive athletes on the field. Cliff Branch was the deep threat for the Raiders when the Silver and Black were…

One of the greatest offensive players in Carolina Panthers history, Steve Smith had seven seasons as a Panther where he eclipsed the 1,000 Yard mark in Receiving Yards.  His best season was in 2005 where he would win the Wide Receiver’s “Triple Crown” by leading the NFL in Receptions, Receiving Yards, and Receiving Touchdowns. 
Out of all the people on this list we will say up front that there is zero chance that Jim Tyrer will get into the Football Hall of Fame.  Killing your wife and committing suicide there after is sadly what Tyrer is best known for and this has led to him being ostracized by the NFL.Had Tyrer not broke down…
In the first incarnation of our Football list, we forget about a legendary Atlanta Falcon?  Granted, there have not been that many in the past history of the Falcons, but we may very well have forgotten about a solid Linebacker in Tommy Nobis who was easily the first bright spot of the Southern franchise. As one of the finest linebackers…
Considered a shocking early retirement by NFL standards, Patrick Willis would spend his entire eight-year professional career with the San Francisco 49ers and make seven Pro Bowls and five First Team All-Pros
It may seem a lifetime ago, but when Hall of Fame Quarterback Len Dawson was looking for a deep threat, it was Otis Taylor who was the target.  In fact, it was Taylor who caught half of the passes for the Kansas City Chiefs in their Super Bowl IV victory.Taylor was a star in the AFL, and a big reason…
Many Hall of Fame candidates watch their push for the Hall build and build.  This doesn’t seem to be the case for Lester Hayes who was a finalist in his first four years of eligibility but has only been a semi-finalist the last six years.Lester Hayes is best known for two things.  The first was in 1980 where he had…
What points do you get for being one of the best players to come out of Vermont?  Okay, not that much, but regardless of what state Steve Wisniewski came from, there was no doubt that he was one of the finest Offensive Linemen of the 1990s.Steve Wisniewski was the de facto leader of the Silver and Black’s O-Line for over…
Usually, Punters don’t have much of a Hall of Fame shot.  It is a good thing for Deron Cherry that he focused on being a Safety.  It is a better thing for the Kansas City Chiefs as Cherry became one of the best at that position.Using his athletic gifts, Deron Cherry emerged as a top defensive star in the NFL.  Once…
