    88 TD
    Yeah, he could retire with about 15000 rushing yards, 20000 APY, and 100 TDs...imagine what it would be had he never torn his ACL.

    If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

What I mean by that is that those years are revealing that he is not nearly as good as what his stats in Indianapolis would indicate. Throughout his entire career in Indy he wasn't the guy the defense geared up to stop. That makes things a lot easier.
        In his defense, he went from one of the best OLs in the NFL to one of the worst. If the Cardinals can build an OL for him, he could probably reach his 03-05 production levels again.

          Give me a break. There is such a small sample to choose from that saying only one came back successfully means jack squat.

          What about players who had 360 or 370 carries during the regular season and went on to play 2 or 3 playoff games that put them over 400 carries for the season? Nobody ever talks about them yet there are a good number of runningbacks who fall under that category. I looked it up once but I am too lazy to do it again. Emmitt Smith was one of them though and I believe he had 2 or 3 seasons with 400+ carries counting the playoffs, most of them being early in his career. He also had a couple more seasons in the 380 or 390 range that really were not much of a difference. He was just fine.

            Torry Holt
            Randy Moss
            Terrell Owens

              Devin Hester is well on his way to destroying every kr/pr record

              but then again only 1 ST player has ever made it into the Hall

                Gayle Sayers made it in part because of his return ability, and the fact that for his era he was an absolute freak of nature.

                That's not to say Hester will make the HOF, but the FO seems to have really high hopes for him at receiver down the road.

                    QB
                    Tom Brady
                    Peyton Manning


                    RB
                    Steven Jackson....I know he still has a long long ways to go
                    Ladainian Tomlinson
                    Larry Johnson....Again he must do a lot, and I worry about him getting too many carries
                    I would say AP, but he has only played one year and the injury concern is still there for me

                    WR
                    Torry Holt
                    Isaac Bruce
                    Randy Moss
                    Terrell Owens
                    Marvin Harrison

                    There are many others I feel have a decent shot, but there are issues like character (TO's #'s will be too amazing to deny him) and having to continue their success for years to come. These are guys I would put in this group in a rough order of what I think their chances of making it are:
                    Chad Johnson
                    Steve Smith
                    Larry Fitzgerald
                    Anquon Boldin
                    Hines Ward......should probably make it because of his overall game, but stat sheets may hurt him
                    Reggie Wayne
                    Andre Johnson......an amazing talent, but his career could end up being wasted away with a terrible team if remains in Houston

                    OL
                    Jonathon Ogden
                    Walter Jones
                    Larry Allen

                    Again many others that could make it, like Orlando Pace (must return to a top level without injuries for a few years) and Samuel from Washington. I am probably leaving some guys off this on accident.

                    DL
                    Michael Strahan

                    LB
                    Ray Lewis
                    Brian Urlacher
                    Shawn Merriman

                    DB
                    Champ Bailey
                    Ed Reed

                    There are a lot guys here that have a shot but I am not as confident about. I'm even a little hesitant on Reed.
                    the bolded guys are the only guys on that list that are actual 100% hall of famers as of now

                      Ogden and Jones aren't? I disagree with that.

                        your list might be better if you took down a name or two....like Steven Jax....he's a great player and all and i love him...but as of right now he's not even sniffing HOF

                          I think you forgot Larry Allen. Anyone with 11 pro bowls, and what 2 SB rings? First Ballot or the HOF is a joke.

                              Sorry man, but Larry Allen is shoe in first ballot. Any reasoning on why he wouldn't be?
