    … and in our Division they are followed by Detroit at #3 and bringing up the rear (or is that taking it up the...) Minnesota Whizzinators.


    The Green Bay Packers have won 12 World Championships (6 since the Vikings came into the league);
    Da Chicago Bears have won 8 World Championships (2 since the Vikings came into the league);
    The Detroit Lions have won 4 World Championships (none since the Vikings came into the league; and
    The Minnesota Whizzinators have won 0, Nada, Zip, NONE!

    The Green Bay Packers have been to 4 & won 3 Super Bowls -1966,67,97,98;
    Da Chicago Bears have been to one and won 1 Super Bowl;(1985)
    The Detroit Lions have NEVER played in a Super Bowl; and
    The Minnesota Whizzinators have won 0, Nada, Zip, NONE! They have however gotten blown out in 4.

    When it comes to Hall of Famers, by Franchise:

    26, Chicago Bears/Staleys
    20, Green Bay Packers
    11, Detroit Lions/Portsmouth Spartans
    5, Minnesota – Carl Eller, Paul Krause, Alan Page, Fran Tarkenton and Ron Yary. Their Coach Bud Grant is also in the Hall.

    * Note of the 4 clubs compared here, the Packers are the only one with sure locks for induction coming soon – led by Reggie White, Brett Favre (whenever he finally hangs them up), LeRoy Butler (well maybe not a lock, but a pretty good bet). Also Jerry Kramer not making the Hall has been nothing short of robbery.

    Other notables in double digits:

    17, Pittsburgh Steelers/Pirates
    16, New York Giants
    15, Washington-Boston Redskins/Boston Braves
    14, Cleveland Browns
    13, St. Louis/Los Angeles/Cleveland Rams
    12, Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders
    10, Arizona/Phoenix/St. Louis/Chicago Cardinals
    10, Indianapolis/Baltimore Colts
    10, San Francisco 49ers

    Hey, da bears have a proud history – I would never try and deny them that.

    It is just when you are #2 you need to try harder

    Good post Bruce.

    Along with the Kramer not being allowed in is the exclusion of one Sterling Sharpe... Who, as a receiver led the league several times and also worked promoting the NFL through the media.

    Yeah - Kramer and Sharpe should be in , and Reggie White going in next year would bring the total to 23 .

    And the Bears have 9 championships. There is no generic or questionable one in the bunch so I have no idea why some people keep claiming there are only 8.

    Richard Dent (137 sacks is 5th in NFL history) should have been in last year and Jay Hilgenberg (7 straight pro bowls) was one of the best centers of all time and should also be in.
    Steve McMichael had 95 sacks, 12 fumble recoveries, was a great run stopper and was a pro bowl player but that might not be enough. Keith Van Horne and Jim Covert may have a chance but not now.

    Because the 1st one you are claiming was won by the Stanleys in 1921 -- there was no NFL it was AFPA. You can claim that there is no question but there is.
