8. Reggie Wayne

The “second” Wide Receiver for the high potent Indianapolis offense of the 2000’s, Reggie Wayne had eight seasons where he went for over 1,000 Yards Receiving and one season where he lead the National Football League in that category.  

Reggie Wayne Officially Retires

You will have to forgive us, as we are a little late on this one. 

Wide Receiver, Reggie Wayne, has announced that he will be officially retiring.  Wayne had asked for his release at the end of pre-season from the New England Patriots this year, but not was able to latch on to any other team. 

With this official retirement, Reggie Wayne retires with some serious Hall of Fame credentials.  A six time Pro Bowl Selection, Wayne caught 1,070 passes for 14,345 Yards and 82 Touchdowns, and is 7th, 8th and 23rd respectively in those categories, all-time.

Those are good statistics but this is not all that has been accomplished by Wayne, who with the exception of this year’s preseason with New England played all of his thirteen seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.  Wayne is a former First Team All Pro and a two time Second Team All Pro and in 21 Playoff Games, caught 93 passes for 1,254 Yards and 9 Touchdowns and was a member of the Colts Super Bowl win in the 2006 season.

Wayne will be available for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2020 and will be on our football list once eligible. 

Thank you Mr Wayne for the memories and we wish you the best of luck in your post playing endeavors.

Our Football List has been revised. Chuck Howley now #1

As we here at consistently work hard to create new lists we have to continuously update the ones that we have.  One of our main core lists, the Football List of those to consider for the Pro Football Hall of Fame has been updated.  

The first step for us is to take out all of those who were chosen for the Hall.  This takes out Tony Gonzalez (#1), Champ Bailey (#2), Ed Reed (#3), Johnny Robinson (#7), Kevin Mawae (#16) and Ty Law (#28).

The second step is to add those who are now eligible.  As we have a Football Futuressection that allows you to vote and make comments prior to their eligibility we factor that input before we slot in the new entries.  

This leads to our third step, which is taking in your votes and comments on the existing names on the list and altering our rankings if deemed necessary.

The entire list can be found here, but on this page the new top ten are:

For the first time, Chuck Howley moved to the top.  The former Linebacker and Super Bowl V MVP was a six time Pro Bowl and five time First Team All Pro Selection.  He was ranked at #5 last year.

L.C. Greenwood rocketed to #2 from #6.  Greenwood played for the Pittsburgh Steelers all of his career and was a member of the dynasty that won four Super Bowls in the 1970’s.  The Defensive End was a six time Pro Bowl Selection and he was a Finalists for the Hall of Fame on six occasions.

Alan Faneca went up from #4 to #3.  The Offensive Lineman was a nine time Pro Bowl and six time First Team All Pro and helped the Steelers win Super Bowl XL.  He has been a Finalist the last four years.

Former NFL Defensive Player of the Year (1978) Randy Gradisharjumps from #8 to #4.  The former Denver Bronco would be chosen for seven Pro Bowls, five First Team All Pros and was a Finalist for the Hall of Fame twice.

Our highest new entry is also our highest rated offensive skill player in former Wide Receiver, Reggie Wayne.  Wayne helped the Colts win Super Bowl XLI and caught 1,070 Receptions with 14,345 Yards. He was a six time Pro Bowl Selection who led the NFL in Receiving Yards in 2007.

Roger Craig went from #9 to #6.  The versatile Running Back helped the San Francisco 49ers win three Super Bowls and he was the NFL Offensive Player of the Year in 1988.  He made history as the first player to rush for 1,000 Yards and catch for 1,000 Yards.

Steve Atwater increased his rank from #12 to #7.  “The Smilin’ Assassin” and former Denver Bronco was first a Finalist in 2016 and was against this year.  The Defensive Back was an eight time Pro Bowler and two time Super Bowl Champion.

Troy Polamalu is the second new entry to break our top ten.  Spending his entire career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Polamalu was chosen for eight Pro Bowls, four First Team All Pros and was the 2010 Defensive Player of the Year.  He helped Pittsburgh win the Super Bowl twice.

Former Super Bowl Champion with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Ronde Barber is #9 after climbing from #11.  The Defensive Back was chosen for five Pro Bowls and was the league leader in Interceptions in 2001.

Rounding out the top ten is Isaac Bruce, the former St. Louis Rams Wide Receiver of their “Greatest Show on Turf”. Bruce was a former Super Bowl Champion who caught 1,024 Passes for 15,208 Yards and 91 Touchdowns.  He would go to four Pro Bowls.

There are other new entries on out Football List.  Also making their debut are:

Patrick Willis comes in at #16.  Playing his entire career with the San Francisco 49ers the Linebacker would be invited to seven Pro Bowls and five First Team All Pros.  

John Abraham makes his first appearance at #40.  Abraham is in the top 15 all time in Quarterback Sacks, Tackles for Loss and Forced Fumbles and he was a five time Pro Bowl Selection.

Former Chicago Bear Linebacker Lance Briggs enters at #80.  He was a seven time Pro Bowl Selection.

The final new entry is Justin Smith at #101.  Smith is a five time Pro Bowl Selection.

As you will see, there are 103 names on this list.  Our intent is to eventually grow it to 250 (or possibly more) so as we are adding and subtracting names, we feel leaving it at this number is fine for now.

You know what we want you to do!

Take a look at our revised list and cast your votes and offer your opinions!

As always we here at would like to thank you for your support.

8. Reggie Wayne

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 to that he accomplished a lot more than that.
