Although they only won one NFL Championship in the late 50’s and early 60’s, the New York Giants were a loaded team.  Jimmy Patton was a star Safety on this squad, but his exploits have largely been forgotten.When the Giants won the 1956 NFL Championship, Jimmy Patton was really coming to his own.  He progressively got better and in 1958…
You would think that the All Time Leader in NFL receptions would have been at least been a finalist for the Hall of Fame.  Of course, Billy Howton was the all time leader when he retired in 1963.  He has dropped considerably since then.Billy Howton was one of the top receivers for the Green Bay Packers through out the 1950’s. …
Spending all but one of his professional seasons with the Chicago Bears, Olin Kreutz was chosen to represent Chicago six consecutive seasons in the Pro Bowl. The former Center was a mainstay on Chicago’s Offensive Line for years and was selected to the NFL 2000’s All Decade Team. As a star Center, he might have an interesting case for the…
There were many stars of the Chicago Bears throughout the 1980’s and many were flashy and unforgettable.  Jay Hilgenberg was an unsung hero of that squad and an anchor of the Offensive Line.
London Fletcher was a tackling machine that had accumulated over 2,000 Tackles in the National Football League. This is where Fletcher’s best chance for the Hall lies as he was only a four time Pro Bowl selection, a number that right or wrong does matter. Fletcher, however does hold a resume with all those tackles, longevity, a Super Bowl Ring…
It might be hard being named Keith Jackson when there was already a very famous sports commentator with the same name who became the voice of the sport.  The Tight End with the same name still managed to carve out his own identity.
We would love to make a case for Karl Mecklenburg just for his nickname of the “Albino Rhino” but we have always been a sucker for colorful (or in this case not so colorful) nicknames.
Harold Jackson had two great seasons in Philadelphia leading the league in receiving yards in 1969 and 1973.  It is too bad that Jackson was the only one playing well for those dreadful Eagles teams.
One of the most respected men in Professional Football, Matt Birk would not just earn six Pro Bowl selections, he would also win the Ed Block Courage Award in 2006 and the prestigious Walter Payton Man of the Year in 2011. The year after receiving that award at the Super Bowl, he won it in his final season with the…
At one point, we here at Notinhalloffame.com debated openly that Donovan McNabb played himself out of the Hall of Fame, with horrific stints in Washington and Minnesota, but if he would have won that Super Bowl (the one he threw up in), would that discussion even be held?
In the upstart American Football League, the San Diego Chargers possessed one of the most dominating Offensive Lines in football.  A big part of that was Walt Sweeney, who patrolled the Right Guard position.
The Cardinals franchise may have a long and storied history of great players.  Jay Novacek may have played five seasons there, but it was not until he hit “Big D” did he become a star and was used to the best of his ability.
One of the main roles of an Offensive Lineman is to create holes for Running Backs.  The Cleveland Browns of the 1960’s had some of the best runners and Dick Schafrath was a big reason that they found as much opportunity to run as they did.
When LeRoy Butler was at the top of his game, there were few Safeties who could touch him.  The problem for opposing teams was that Butler was at his best a lot.
What is it about the 2000’s and brash Wide Receivers?  Perhaps the most obnoxious (depending on your point of view) of them all was Chad Johnson, who was a major star for the Cincinnati Bengals for a decade.  
Len Dawson was one of the great Quarterbacks of the American Football League, but a big reason he was able to do what he did was because Ed Budde helped him stay upright.
The hard luck Cincinnati Bengals have yet to win a Super Bowl, but it was Boomer Esiason who brought them closer than anyone else had when they lost to the San Francisco 49ers on a last minute drive in Super Bowl XXIII.  Fortunately for Esiason, his career did not need a Super Bowl Ring to be considered great.Replacing the productive…
Linebackers are built to strike fear in Quarterbacks.  Greg Lloyd seemed destined to strike fear in virtually everyone around him.
Dan Marino may have been one of the greatest Quarterbacks in National Football League History, but it sure helped that he had Mark Clayton lined up with to throw Touchdowns to.
