The Pro Football Hall of Fame

I'm just sitting here watching Jonathan Ogden give his speech and thinking about our Panthers. We have one Hall of Famer: Reggie White. Guys like Kevin Greene and Eric Davis have been considered. But none of these guys are true Panthers. They are best known for their time in other cities. Who do you guys want to be our first? Who will be our first?

 

For years I thought Beason was the guy. Making the HoF isn't just about talent, it's something more. It's about fire burning in your soul. Jon has that but I'm afraid his body has abandoned him.

Cam in 20 years maybe. I wanna say Smitty but he probably survived too many bad quarterbacks for his own good.

Peppers will be enshrined one day but will be remembered for the Bears despite his best years being with us.

I would hope Steve Smith gets in as a 1st ballot HOFer.........

If it's based purely of stats, Smitty will be in the Hall.

If you currently look at his stats, they are very, very, similar to Michael Irvin's.

if cam continues at his current pace and stays healthy he'll probably be at or around top five all time in yards and scoring if he manages to play for 12+ years

 

put at least one ring on top of that and he's a possible first ballot

If it's based purely on stats Michael Irvin isn't in. There are a bunch of average receivers with big career numbers. I know with my heart and eyes that Steve played like a Hall of Famer. But the list of receivers is long and decorated. Also the voting process is an issue. Old crusty white journalists vote and Steve hasn't always been kind to those people. Hines Ward was less talented but he has better numbers (for now) and the notoriety.

The fact that Irvin is in, is why I said what I did.

You can't really argue it since he's already in.

But I agree, Irvin's stats don't compare to those of others on the Hall.

Irvin had to retire a little early too with the injury at the Vet. He was a great player on a great team and he split touches with Emmit.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
