Our long and arduous work in progress of ranking the top fifty players for every North American sports team is underway, but after that is completed we will then take a look how each franchise honors their own in terms of respective franchise halls of fame, ring of honors, retired numbers and statues.

As such it is noteworthy to us that over the weekend the San Diego Chargers officially retired the number of former Running Back, LaDainian Tomlinson and entered him in their franchises’ Hall of Fame.

Tomlinson played for San Diego from 2001 to 2009 and made five Pro Bowls and three First Team All Pros.  Three times he would lead the NFL in Rushing Touchdowns and in 2006 was named the League MVP. 

The former Running Back becomes the fourth player to have his number retired, joining Dan Fouts, Lance Alworth and Junior Seau. 

Tomlinson will be eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2017 and is considered by many to enter Canton.

We would like to congratulate LaDainian Tomlinson on this latest accolade and there is reason to think there are more coming.



A few weeks ago, the Pro Football Hall of Fame inducted their latest class, which means one thing for us at Notinhalloffame.com…it is time to revamp our list our top 100 on the football list for next year’s class!

Recapping what happened last year, Brett Favre (#1), Marvin Harrison (#3), Ken Stabler (#6), Orlando Pace (#15), Dick Stanfel (#30) and Kevin Greene (#37) were selected along with Eddie DeBartolo Jr. and Tony Dungy were all inducted.  With three of our top ten chosen, a major overhaul at the top has occurred as three new eligible entrants made the top ten.

Jerry Kramer, the only man who was named to the 75th NFL Anniversary Team who was not named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame returns to the top spot.  Kramer played in the first two Super Bowls with the Green Bay Packers and remains a Lambeau legend.

LaDainian Tomlinson, the former Running Back who will be eligible for the first time, holds #2.  Tomlinson spent most of his career with the San Diego Chargers and he is a former three time First Team All Pro and was the MVP in 2006.  Tomlinson is also a two time rushing champion.

Former Super Bowl MVP, Chuck Howley, has his highest rank at #3.  Howley is a six time Pro Bowl Selection.

At #4 is Alan Faneca, who is entering his second year of eligibility.  The former Offensive Lineman was a Finalist last year. 

L.C. Greenwood is ranked at #5.  The former Defensive End helped the Pittsburgh Steelers to four Super Bowls and he has been a Hall of Fame Finalist six times.

The always controversial, Terrell Owens, returns at #6.  The Wide Receiver has been vocal about the Hall of Fame voting process being flawed and has been the subject of much debate.

The now eligible Brian Dawkins comes in at #7.  Dawkins adds to the already heavy logjam at Safety.

Torry Holt, who was not a Finalist last year, is ranked at #8.

AFL star, Johnny Robinson is at #9.  Robinson is a former Super Bowl winner with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Rounding out the top ten is another new entry, Defensive Tackle, Jason Taylor, a six time Pro Bowler.

The other new entries to our Notinhalloffame.com Football list are:

Former Super Bowl MVP, Hines Ward enters our list for the first time at the #21 spot.

The “infamous” Ochocinco, Chad Johnson debuts at the #26 spot.

Former Quarterback, Donovan McNabb, enters our list at #30.

Wide Receiver, Derrick Mason makes his first appearance on our list at #59

Former Chicago Bear, Offensive Lineman, Olin Kreutz debuts at #69.

At #96, Joey Porter, the former Pittsburgh Steeler Linebacker who helped the Steelers win Super Bowl XL.

Gang, you know what we want you to do!  Take a look at the new entries and cast your votes and give us your opinions.

As always, we here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to thank all of you for your support!

With the large amount of players it is hard to perceive that there are any snubs, which there isn’t. 

In November this group of 97 Modern Era Nominees will be reduced to 18.  In January of 2017, it will be shrunk to 15.  They will join the Senior Finalist and Contributor Finalists and on February 4, the day before the Super Bowl, the respective committees will decide the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2017.

You know we will be paying attention!

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.
With some additional announcements, all of the Pro Football Hall of Fame inductors for 2017 have been named. 

Sebastian Andersen will induct his father, former Place Kicker Morten Andersen.

Sports Agent Neil Schwartz will induct his client and friend, Terrell Davis.

Tommy Rhodes will induct Kenny Easley, who he coached in high school.

Gene Jones will induct her husband, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

Former Miami Dolphins Head Coach Jimmy Johnson will induct his former player Jason Taylor.

Lorenzo Neal will induct his former San Diego Charger teammate LaDainian Tomlinson.

Brenda Warner will induct her husband, Kurt Warner.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame festivities will take place the first weekend of August.
