    It still blows my mind how Kevin Green isn't in the hall of fame. He has more sacks than Lawrence Taylor only Reggie White and Bruce Smith have more.

    Roger Craig should have been in years ago, same with Cris Carter.

    Why is there no love for Ken Stabler and Sterling Sharpe?

    I have a hard time seeing Steve Tasker being inducted, even though I truly think he deserves it. If people are going on and on about putting Devin Hester in there, then you have to put Steve Tasker in.

    Kevin Greene and CMII. That would be awesome! :)

    Jerome Bettis should also get in.

    jerome bettis will get in for the reason that sterling sharpe most likely never will. longevity.
    although, the counterpoint to that statement is the fact that cris carter is not in the hall of fame, which I believe he is deserving of. Aside from jerry rice not many receivers come to mind that had better hands than cc.

    I don't think anybody had better hands than Cris Carter. Even Rice.

    this thread prompted me to look at great nfl hall of famers and for my money barry sanders was just the best of the best. That guy was amazing to watch and made grown men, playing the same game he is, look silly and scared.

    Great highlights but pretty much didn't show up in big games and never had any post season success.

    Your case for the hall is normally made by the reporter who covers your city. Well Kevin Greene went from city to city in the nfl so he never really attached himself to a team. If he spent his entire career in let's say Pittsburgh it would be a different story.

    Cortez Kennedy was a beast, and if you don't know much about him, go play Tecmo Super Bowl, and see how easy he gets to the quarterback. probably the Seahawks best player in their last decade of being an AFC team.

    Andre Reed should be in the Hall too, and he would definitely be in, along with many other Buffalo players had they won just one of those Super Bowl.

    Roger Craig and Jerome Bettis deserve a spot, two great RB's


    I hope Aeneas Williams never gets in the Hall of Fame, since he is the one that gave Steve Young his career ending concussion.

    saw Clay Matthews before anything else and did a big WTF, then realized.

    Will Shields any relation to Sam Shields?

    big games are usually classified as being against good teams, and if you are playing in the post-season its obvious those teams are good to make it there. The lions had absolutely no offensive line and no offensive threats other than him, pretty easy to look at those games and say he didn't show up. I say doing what he did being basically 1 guy vs 11 is pretty impressive. He literally had no good players around him.

    Yup, Barry sucked. 77 out of 153 regular seasons games he had over 100 yards. 25 of those were over 150 yard a game. Of his last two years playing, 32 games, 22 were over 100 yards.
    In 6 post season game he had 91 attempts for 389 yards at 4.24 yards per carry. And that includes the game Green Bay shut him down for -1 yard.

    Thanks for twisting words. No wonder people start threads complaining about you.

    6 post season games 1 rushing TD. only 1 100 yard game in the post season.

    Lomas Brown is chopped liver all of a sudden? What about Herman Moore? Kevin Glover?

    The "no offensive line" argument is a myth.

    Even Rice? The best thing Chris Carter knew how to do was get away with pushing off.

    Someone started a thread about me? Cool.

    I twisted no words. You said Barry Sanders didn't show up for big game and had no post-seasons success. Well the Lions played 6 post season games in his career. He pretty much carried the team for those years. That big playoff game against the Packers, no, not the one that the Packers held him for -1 yard. The one the year before were he put up 169 yards rushing against the Packers during the playoff game. The one were Favre thossed a 4th quarter TD for the Packers to win. That was all Barrys fault. Post season success comes as a team. To say a player sucks because his team didn't win in the playoffs is disingenuous.
    I guess Walter Payton sucked as well, after all, he had 9 playoff games and only 1 over 100 yards. At least he got to go to one Super Bowl.

    And if someone has a complaint about me, they can PM me. Make a thread about me, bring it on, be careful though, I'll caps lock you!

    herman moore? bahahahaha I love when people say that he was a great offensive player. Absolute myth that he was a great receiver. Decent at best. And lomas brown was good I will give you that, kevin glover was mediocre. If you are basing you're weak argument off pro bowls and not what they did on the field then Kevin Glover had 3, herman moore 4, and lomas had 7.

    I will stick by the fact the fact that Detroit had a very weak offensive line and no other true offensive weapons. Most NFL experts would agree with that assessment as its almost impossible to argue with if you ever watched a detroit game (or a packers game when they played them for that matter) when barry was there.

    Not to forget, Barry never had a good quarterback handing the ball off to him.

    Sanders is a prime of example of one good player on your offense and never building a team around him, just using that one player to carry the entire team, cause you can see it didn't get them far. Other than Sanders, Brett Perriman was probably the other best player in that offense, and on defense they did have Pat Swilling from New Orleans, but his better days were over by time he came to Detroit.
