    Coughlin wasn't the one with the guts to make clutch throws late in the game when it mattered. Something Romo couldn't even do in December.

    yeah, Mahomes is better than Eli. He doesn’t have two rings, but that’s not how you measure QBs in a team game. Hell, Romo was better than Eli, and HE doesn’t belong in the HOF!

    The hall of fame is like the pro-bowl now or better yet it's just an NFL museum for popular players, not top 5 players who re-defined their position etc

    I feel the same way though. But I feel like some of these younger guys should be waiting to get in.

    Man when it comes to Deion here you will find some of the worst and mind boggling opinions. I’ve always felt that way. I don’t know why he triggers some here.

    Ask Drew Pearson if they let too many in. There’s still several Cowboys we all believe are worthy but left out. Which amplifies still how exclusive a fraternity it is despite some we’ll always dispute.

    I suppose in the Centennial Celebration there is an abundance of inductees. 20 additional I believe.

    But when you consider for the 1st 100 years there’s only about 300+ in HOF it doesn’t appear to be a gluten.

    And the yearly mandate of 6 allows those who might have been overlooked in years past. Which is the beauty of the HOF is that it’s never too late.

    Perhaps Deion being a 1st Ballot inductee believes it should be exclusive to that level of athletes?

    Personally I applaud how the NFL conducts the process and this 100 year celebration which I plan on attending.

    There's probably some older players that should be in that still aren't in and probably won't get in. Harvey Martin, LC Greenwood, Drew Pearson, Louis Wright, Dick Anderson, Roger Craig, and Carl Banks to name a few should be in. Not sure if any of them ever will get in.

    If Kurt Warner didn't take Arizona to the Super Bowl I would agree. That put him in the Hall IMO. Those Arizona teams weren't even that great. He won a playoff game the next year after taking them to the Super Bowl. The numbers probably were in his Rams days, but that's debatable in this day and age. But the 2 and a half years in Arizona or whatever it was put him over the top.

    Terrell Davis is in for similar reasons. Look at his playoff rushing numbers. 142 yards per game in 8 playoff games. 1140 yards in the playoffs rushing. Just to give you an example. Emmitt Smith only had around 400 more rushing yards in 9 more playoff games. If he didn't have the playoffs numbers he's basically like Billy Sims who is another one that will never get in the hall of fame.

    Over the years, some 'enlightened' folks have argued that Troy Aikman would not be in the Hall if not for leading the team to three championships. They have always presented Aikman's numbers without the rings as pedestrian as their Exhibit 1.

    Given Deion Sanders recent comments, I would enjoy seeing he and Aikman in a one-on-one discussion on the merits of Hall enshrinement. I would think things would get interesting once talk turned to why each of them deserve being in the Hall. I say interesting because I find myself wondering what Sanders actually thinks of his former teammate's qualifications as a Hall Of Famer in comparison to some of Aikman's peers at the position.

    If ya wanna know about a SERIOUS, do-it-all, NFL CB, please investigate Dick “Night Train” Lane.

    14 INTs in a 12-game season (!!?!), which is still the record, 68 INTs career (@15 more than Sanders), during an era when, except for a handful of teams, passing the ball was as much a novelty as a weapon — meaning, much less opportunities for INTs.

    The most feared tackler of his era, Lane played the run and blitzed like a mofo.

    Deion Sanders couldn’t have carried Night Train’s jock.

    There are other QBs in with no better credentials than Eli.

    He also had less than half the career yardage and TDs that Eli had, and Plunkett threw more INTs in his career than TD's

    Why didn't Neon Deion say this BEFORE he was inducted ?
