The Pro Football Hall of Fame


Best Answer Firefox, 04 August 2013 - 02:19 PM

I believe Peppers will get in even though he has no heart. But if he goes in as a Chicago Bear I will lose my fugin mind.

 

Is a New Hall of Fame Member Enshrined as a Member of a Team?

 

Obviously, teams take great pride in the accomplishments of individuals who have been a part of their organization. Often individual teams and even the Hall of Fame will list enshrinees according to the team or teams on which they spent a significant period of time. An enshrinee, however, is not asked to “declare,” nor does the Hall of Fame “choose” a team under which a new member is enshrined. When elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, an individual is recognized for his accomplishments as a player, coach, or contributor.

peppers and smith will both be HoFers

 

lets say smith gets 2500 more yards for the remainder of his career. that puts him at 14,000, a number that i think is definitely high enough for HoF induction.

 

and it's not all about the numbers, vets and retired players alike ALL praise smith and think of him as an elite talent still at the age of 34. his stature might even get him a few points from some voters. he is a unique talent with his size, strength, explosiveness, and mouth and that uniqueness is considered in these type of things i think.

I really want Smith to get it. If he ever gets a ring I think he'll end up finally getting the recognition he deserves.

if Smitty flourishes in the slot for several years.....

and gets that Lombardi he deserves.....

 

Then we'll have our first HOFer all our own.

 

Of course, I'd like to see Kevin Greene get in ASAP.

Greene should definitely be the next to get in. I love Reggie White, but it doesn't feel like he's OURS. That was almost a forgotten season...

Smitty has been my favorite player for years and his achievements should no doubt be recognized at some point by the HOF. You have to remember, he is the FIRST WR to ever accomplish what he has and play the way he plays at his size. There has not been any WR like him before and its not very likely there will be another. Writers have to consider him for that, rings or no rings... Problem is, he hasn't exactly been a media darling over the years, so that won't work in his favor. I believe he should be in regardless.

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.

 

but how many of those WRs on that long decorated list have a Triple Crown? one maybe two?

Muhammad would only make it to Canton if they had a section for great contract years.

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

chris carter was voted to the hall in his sixth year of eligibility, how do you figure steve smith will make it in his first. steve smith will make it to the hall when he buys a ticket like the rest of us.

Every Panther fan in the world WANTS Smitty in. But realistically he's not even close. He had the unfortunate luck of playing with a bad quarterback, on a run first team for 10 years, during the time of offensive explosion. Current players numbers are going to poo all over smitty's. Add that to the fact that WR is the hardest position to make it in since there has been a complete log jam in HOF Receivers over the past few years. He's my favorite player of all time and I would gladly make the trip to Canton if he ever got in, but you need to let the fantasy go.

 

Hes:

 

-27th all time in receptions (plus there are 5 players real close to him that will pass him in a few years, not even counting the Megatron's and AJ Green types)

-23rd in receiving yards (3 about to pass him)

-59th in receiving TDs

-0 Super Bowls

-0 MVPs

-only had over 8 TDs ONCE in his career

 

right now, Smitty and Chad Johnson have almost identical all time stats

Smitty: 772 catches. 11452 yards. 63 Rec TDs

Chad: 766 catches. 11059 yards. 67 RecTDs

 

Great player? Without question. Hall of Famer? Not a chance

very good post, 27th in receptions, 23rd in yards, 59th in TDs, he aint got a prayer, and you didnt even mention his assaults on teammates.

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.
