This +Kasay.

You don't retire a Ks number. That shows how young our franchise is when something like that has a bandwagon

Well, I think the special step occurs earlier in careers than where Gross or Gamble are at. Smitty for example, it occured his 2nd season as a full time starter.

Smitty and Pep....and possibly Cam now are the only ones IMO to at least hint they have that real special quality. Love Beason, but he is more of a working mans type player. More heart than freak ability.....

Idk, certain games weigh heavier than others and those games can come at anytime. If youre consitently good and then throw some magical performances in big games. . . you'll never be forgotten.

and as for as the Beast goes . . Heart and leadership will get you a number retired if you have the career to back it up.

You don't retire a Ks number.

esp. for your first official retired jersey as an organization.

Well Gross nor Gamble have those moments...

As far a Beason goes I still lump him with he Gross type guys. Pro Bowler but lacks that special something. I don't consider leadership that "it" factor I am hinting at....Smitty, Peppers and Cam have all hinted they can almost single handedly take over a game with freak play.

Beason doesn't have that ability. Pep lacks the heart Smitty and Cam have to go along with the freak play. Rather have a Beason than a Pep....but Peps ceiling is and always has been higher.

I know that Jan Stenerud of the Kansas City Chiefs had his number retired in 94'.

And I know that a lot of die hard Eagles fans want David Akers Jersey retired even though he's with the niners.

Is this just another one of your many arguments of the day CRA?

All of that is right on the money, but I will say this. First, Gamble and Gross havnt had those moments . . . yet, and still may several chances to do so. And second, having your number retired is not the same as going to the hof. The criteria, I dont think, is the same.

sorry. shouldn't happen.

statue? maybe.

ring of honor? maybe.

jersey retired? nope.

don't retire jersey just because he was loyal, nice, and at most an above-average player at his position for most of his career.

retire jersey's for players who were dominant at their position and helped make something special happen.

that might have been kasay had he not screwed up that kick in the superbowl (though that kick alone isn't the sole reason he shouldn't have his jersey retired, it just would have helped his "case" such as it is).
