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 throughout the 1950s.  He was a…
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.
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…
One of the early stars of the Green Bay Packers, Verne Lewellen, was an all-purpose Back who did it all for Green Bay.  The product of Nebraska (the state and the University) would be named to four straight First Team All-Pro squads (1926 to 1929) and was a large part of their three consecutive NFL Championships (1929 to 1931). 
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 with…
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.
Richmond Webb proved his merit immediately as the 9th overall Draft Pick in 1990 as the Left Tackle was a Pro Bowl, All-Rookie Selection, and UPI even went as far as naming him the Rookie of the Year.  That year was no flash in the pan as Webb would go on to be named to six more Pro Bowls (all…
Phil Simms is a two time Super Bowl Winning Quarterback, though many who watched his first five years of play may not have foreseen it.Simms may have been inconsistent when he began his tenure in the NFL, but something seemed to click in 1984.  It wasn’t just the influx of talent to the Giants roster, as it was at this…
From the football factory of SMU, Jerry Mays elected to stay in his home state with the Dallas Texans, who drafted him in the 5th Round of the 1961 Draft.  The Minnesota Vikings of the NFL chose him in the 11th Round.
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.
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.
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.
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 that Ed Budde helped him stay upright.
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.

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…
It is hard not to consider Clay Matthews Jr. as part of football royalty. How can you not? 
Linebackers are built to strike fear in Quarterbacks.  Greg Lloyd seemed destined to strike fear in virtually everyone around him.
