dont hold your breath on either one. peppers makes it before smith, and he's a longshot. if peppers makes it, so does dwight freeney.

 

peppers- 2nd overall pick 2002 draft- 111.5 sacks- 37 forced fumbles

 

freeney- 11th overall pick 2002 draft- 107.5 sacks- 44 forced fumbles

 

peppers ranks 18th all time in sacks, freeney ranks 21st

 

freeney's 44 forced fumbles leads the nfl since 2002, and he also has a ring.

 

to my knowledge neither peppers or freeney ever ended the career of a teammate with an assault.

Please don't mention Freeney in the same breath as Julius Peppers ever again. Thanks. Or Jared Allen or DeMarcus Ware for that matter.

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.

 

That and the fact EVERY game plan against the Panthers is to shut Smitty down. 

 

What is it Jon Gruden used to call him Freddie Krueger?  "Scares the hell out of me."

 

I think so many people forget that the criteria is not only numbers but how he affected the game.  Like I said above.  Every gameplan includes Steve Smith.

Interesting article by NFL.com: http://www.nfl.com/halloffame/story/0ap1000000226383/article/michael-strahan-charles-haley-headline-next-50-hall-of-famers

 

They predict the next 50 HOF's

 

In 2016, they have Kevin Greene getting in, and in 2021 they have Julius Peppers getting in.
