Five Broncos on the list! That has to be a record, right?

crowebomber 11-30-2012 01:54 PM

Parcells and Strahan, then the second tier is Sapp, Lynch. I think Carter or Tim Brown have a shot this year.

Didn't see Bettis on there either. He has a good shot this year.

Broncos_OTM 11-30-2012 01:55 PM

Some pretty darn good football players on that list.

socalorado 11-30-2012 02:03 PM

Honestly, after reading through that list, i reallly dont see why almost all of em cant be in the HOF. They all were superstars at their respective positions at 1 point in time, and they all were game changers during their careers.
Tim brown and Albert Lewis might not deserve to be in. But, man they deserve an "Iron Man" award for being in the league that long!

extralife 11-30-2012 02:36 PM

lots of worthy first ballot guys. I think Cris Carter finally gets in this year, but I wouldn't be surprised if the rest of the class was first ballot guys (Sapp, Ogden, Allen, Strahan--personally I wouldn't put Strahan in on the first ballot at all, but he's a media guy, he's in).

Watch not a single one of them get in.

IA-Broncosfan53 11-30-2012 02:51 PM

Even if we don't get anyone in this time, and I don't think we will, it will be good to get some other borderline candidates that have been close for a few years now such as Tim Brown and Cris Carter.

Would you guys rather have Atwater or Lynch as your starting safety? I never watched Lynch on irregular basis until he became a bronco. Atwater seemed more physical than Lynch, but Lynch seemed to have better coverage skills.

Still can't figure out the logic in Gale Sayers being a slam dunk, no question, 100 percent HOFer and TD is on the fence.

Pick Six 11-30-2012 02:55 PM

There's a lot of good names, but I'm predicting that Larry Allen will be among the ones enshrined...

cmhargrove 11-30-2012 03:02 PM

If Charles Haley makes it in, will the make a bronze scuplture of his penis, or his face? Or, his penis in a dudes face? I'm not sure about the protocol there...

One was a Bear, the other a Bronco. Nothing more to it.

A penis in Joe Montana's face.

But Haley refused to stop. He would jerk off in the locker room, in the trainer’s room. He’d wrap his hand around his penis, turn toward a Joe Montana or John Taylor, and bellow, ‘You know you wanna suck this!’

LOL

That article gets funnier everytime I see it. How could people subject themselves to that?

extralife 11-30-2012 03:29 PM

there are more stories about charles haley's penis than there are charles haley sacks.

You can't do as many things with the sack. The stories would get old.

extralife 11-30-2012 03:38 PM

no, I mean the number of stories about Haley's penis outnumber his career sack total

It had to be that they were terrified of the guy.

The only argument i've seen is that Sayers also returned kicks. Other than that, logic takes a backseat to nostalgia. But if Sayers returned kicks, well, we all know what TD did to returners like Sayers:

Strahan has to go in, I think he has the credentials to be a first ballot guy.

I think Will Shields gets in this year, 12 pro-bowls, 8 all-pro, Walter Payton man of the year award. By the same logic that kept Shields out last year I think Larry Allen gets left out this year but will be put in next year - they two have very similar resumes.

Jonathan Ogden should go in, of everybody on that he is one who was closest to being the undisputed best at his position for a long time.

I think they will put in 2 non-players along with the above 3 players. Parcells should go in and I wouldn't be surprised to see Debartolo as well.

Strahan I can definitely see, big name on a NY team, pretty much a lock. Oh, and he can thank the moron Favre too.
