Is the Hall of Fame becoming a joke?

Here's the 2017 class;

 

Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2017 Inductee Pos Team Years Morten Andersen K Saints, Falcons, Giants, Chiefs, Vikings 1982-2007 Terrell Davis RB Broncos 1995-2001 Kenny Easley S Seahawks 1981-1987 Jerry Jones Owner Cowboys 1989-Present Jason Taylor DE Dolphins, Washington, Jets 1997-2011 LaDainian Tomlinson RB Chargers, Jets 2001-2011 Kurt Warner QB Rams, Giants, Cardinals 1998-2009

 

Outside of LT and maybe Andersen not a single person on this list strikes me as "best of the best"

 

This years class is arguably the weakest I have ever seen and with players like Dawkins, TO, Craig, etc guys like Warner, Taylor, Davis shouldnt even be considered.

I thought this whole thing was settled when LT said he has no problem with LT being called LT.

 

I think we also need to draft an LT.

Who cares what Taylor thinks about it? It's the fans that count.....THE FANS! Chargers fans, NFL Network....they want to call Tomlinson LT, fine I guess. Never should a Giants fan describe him as LT. Ever.

 

Absolutely agree we need to draft another 5LT6.

His replacement will be hard to find with all the drug testing in place and all :(

Shouldnt the fans care what LT has to think about what LT thinks about LT?

 

I mean only LT can have the final word on LT and what his opinion is on LT.

 

I would imagine LT is probably friends with LT since LT is always being called LT even though LT was the first LT and us Giants fans had to make a big deal about LT and when LT played since he was the only LT but now there was this new LT.

 

LT is still a position of need, maybe we can get LT's opinion on what the Giants should do about LT and if they need a new LT or to keep their current LT.

 

Maybe we can get LT in as a coach since former players can usually make decent position coaches, especially if LT can coach LTs.

The LT position is on offense. The real LT knows defense. LT would never be able to coach LT's.

 

And there's no such thing as a "new LT". It's LaDanian Tomlinson. If anything, it's LDT. You know, like the old Ford sedan.

 

I think you're just mocking my post and finding any opportunity to type the letters "LT", so no you can go LT yourself, pal.

Naww no mock, but who's on first, what's on second and I dont know is on third.

 

I just never had a problem calling Tomlinson LT, two different generations of football, two different positions.

 

Both top players in the NFL when they played, one defind the position, the other carried a team his entire career.

 

But back on the actual topic.

 

Outside of LDT and Anderson I don't think a single person on that list was even the best at their position when they played.

 

You can make a case for Jerry since he made the Cowboys an entertainment/merchandise juggernaut.

It's a joke that Owens can't get in

 

It's fucking ridiculous a guy like Marvin Harrison gets in who in his prime wasnt even the best WR in the NFL not even in the top 10, a guy who owes his entire existence to Peyton Manning gets in, but yet TO who did nothing but destroy the NFL game after game despite what team he was on, is snubbed because of public opinion.

TO should be in but let us not forget that Andy Reid, a fairly patient man, sent TO home in the midst of a super bowl run because he was such a distraction to the team.

Marvin Harrison has had monster years. Again, they all should be in. Except Jerry Jones. I've been there, there's room for everyone. If you want to question a receiver who got in on the first ballot, how about Steve Largent?

Terrell Davis had 4 great years and was largely responsible for 2 rings. I don't know why people have a tough time seeing him worthy. I think they all belong.

 

Yep, Elway gets all the glory but Davis was the one driving that train. Dude had 7 consecutive POSTSEASON 100 rushing yard games.

I like how TO can't get in because if character issues but Harrison might've gotten away with murder and no one cares

definitely not a place filled with choirboys but I think they are more harsh with those they feel were disruptive. TO will get in next year and they'll make Randy Moss sweat a year.

Poor Eli, may never get the respect he should. don't give a shit what anyone says, he had two great two-minute drives to put them ahead over the Patriots in those two SB's. who the fuck else has done it in game as such?
