I gave up on trying to figure that one out after he was passed over the first two times. I think Strahan's personality is what got him in this early, honestly.

I really hope KG gets in next round.

It's a joke he didn't get in earlier. Specialists are criminally underrated and it's a shame only two are in the Hall of Fame.

The problem with Hall of Fame voting is who votes. It should be players and coaches in my opinion. Strahan plays in a big market, you see him on TV all the time, he's first ballot because he's relevant. Other guys have amazing careers and lives and wait because of name recognition or their behavior towards the media.

I should have said this in the first post: Congrats to Ray Guy. Punters, Kickers, and Long Snappers play football too. They have an incredible skill that is valued in the NFL and if they separate themselves as the best they should be in the Hall Of Fame. If you don't consider Kickers football players then take kicking out of football.

That's like saying quarterbacks aren't football players, they're quarterbacks...insert any position.

Dude...Guy wasn't just any punter....he was literally the father of the art of modern punting.  Guy was the first punter who could get freakish hang time and freakish distance and the dude was a legit athlete too (he regularly made tackles on special teams).  He was a weapon.  He punted the Raiders out of so many poo situations.  He should have gotten in a long time ago.  Blame it on "commentators" and "writers" who never played competitive sports at any kind of high level but somehow have monopolized all the power in determining who makes it into the Hall of Fame.  It's absurd.

I said it in the other thread and I'll say it here as well:


Today's media isn't qualified to make these kinds of decisions. The NFL needs to establish a committee of trusted people who have been heavily involved with the game for a long time and have them make the decisions.


This isn't about Guy, I think it's cool a punter got in and he deserved to, but overall the media just doesn't have the ability to get this right anymore. Journalistic integrity and standards have fallen astronomically in the last 20 years and there is nothing that separates these media types from the typical fan.
