Howabout Mike Alstott? 6 Straight Pro Bowls, Record Holder for most touch downs in Buccaneers history, Super Bowl Ring.


Well, you DID make Fullback an option...

Yes, except Alstott wasn't a fullback. He was a mediocre power tailback. He sucked at a fullback's primary responsibility (blocking) and was mediocre at a fullback's secondary responsibility (receiving). He was a great short yardage runner, but that doesn't get him in the hall.

As much as I'd love to see Rod Smith in Canton, I'm not sure if he's well-known enough to make it happen. He's loved here in Denver, and he's put up ridiculous stats for an undrafted player, but his noteriety factor is barely measurable.

Not that I think that's a bad thing, but it'll be tough to get his head above a sea of outspoken and better known WRs, despite his consistant production and classy attitude.

How about Rod Smith?

Tied for 12th all time in Receptions with Steve Largent and he'll be around what's currently 7th at seasons end (though it will end up being 8th or 9th at that point because of Isaac Bruce and McCardell).

16th all time in recieving yards.

He'll be top 30 in Recieving TD's by seasons end. Currently 33rd.

And he's 41st all-time in Yards from Scrimmage.

how bout some Steelers..... Ward should be a lock if he keeps playin the way he does, Big Ben could if he can lead us to a couple super bowls or have nice stat seasons, Faneca should be a lock, and I can see Polamalu gettin in someday.

Warrick Dunn has to be in the hall.

Big Ben hasn't really proven anything yet. He had a great season last year, no doubt, but he also had the worst Superbowl in history, as far as his QB rating. This season, he's doing a decent job, but has had some trouble staying healthy. He's on his 2nd concussion...too many more means lights out for him.

Isaac Bruce I believe is pretty likely as well.

Although he probably should, I don't think he will. It seems there are so many WRs with great stats that the bar is set pretty high now. Torry Holt will make it if he keeps his current pace for years to come, but Isaac Bruce will more than likely fall short.

I wouldn't be too sure-Ike's gonna be pretty high up on most of those career statistical categories when all is said and done, and I'm sure the Hall voters would take into consideration the fact he spent the last 8-10 years of his career sharing catches with Holt.

If Kellen Winslow can stay solid he has a chance.

Well, your little soldier's got some talent, but he's going to have to play a full season and put up much better than "solid" production to make it into the hall... there's plenty of solid players that don't make it.

I don't care who gets in (though I think Tiki Barber will have a fair shot) as the Hall of fame is bull :censored: to me until they let in Art Monk

Agreed... I'm not a 'Skins fan, but it's baffling that he's not in there.
