Glad Chris Carter finally made it. I'm surprised that Sapp made it as first ballot even though he deserves it.

Hopefully Carter getting in begins to clear out the log jam at WR. Tim Brown next.

I don't think it's that obvious Sapp is a HOFer. He had some good years but he was never the best player in the league in my opinion. He just ran his mouth and chased the cameras.

89 is two 1,200 yard seasons of matching Cris Carter in total yards. HOF is a great possibility for #89 if he can pass him. Plus Smitty has an all pro/pro bowl as a special teamer. Cris Carter has never lead the league in receiving and is 2 whole yards less in YPC. This is a good HOF sign for #89

No not really. The HofF committee has stated that when looking at the number aspect they look at the times in which they played. Current passing numbers are wayy up compared to previous decades. Look at hard it is for players like Tim Brown to get in.... Smitty deserves the world from Carolina when he retires, but not the Hall of Fame IMO.

That's YOUR opinion. In actuality he helped to REDEFINE the Defensive Tackle position. There weren't many DT's posting sack numbers like Sapp and DISRUPTING OFFENSIVE LINES AS EFFECTIVELY until he came along. Sapp gave the DT position NEW LIFE. Even Kris Jenkins benefited from the possibilities.

True, Sapp is a loud mouth. But he is a HALL OF FAME-WORTHY LOUDMOUTH. Why is it that several teams run the Tampa 2 defense (even though the Bucs don't run it anymore)? Because Sapp was THAT effective in it.

It's not widely acknowledged outside of NFL circles, but Sapp was part of a LEGENDARY defense, in which he was a key cog that made it all work. Dungy BUILT A DEFENSE (that has been copycatted around the league) AROUND SAPP'S ABILITIES.

If that's not HOF worthy, then nothing is...
