    If it was truly the pro football Hall of Fame then Herschel Walker would get in. However, since he forced the NFL to start letting juniors in and went to the USFL for the best years of his career people hold a grudge or just don't realize how good a pro career he had:

    (These tidbits may have changed in recent years because of some CFL player or somthing, but should be mostly still true)

    -He's pro football's all time leader in total yards
    -He's pro football's second all time leading rusher
    -Holds the record for most yards rushing in a season
    -twice named All-Pro in the NFL
    -Went to 2 Pro Bowls in the NFL
    -transitioned from being a top runner to being a very good kick returner later in his career
    -Numerous NFL seasons with 50+ receptions
    -One of a select group of players to ever score 60+ rushing TD's and 20+ receiving TD's
    -and so on

    Doug Flutie also should go in, but won't for similar reasons.

      I think three things hurt Carter.

      1) He's a D-bag. Although this didn't hurt Michael Irvin at all, so go figure.

      2) He wasn't the complete package at WR, which likely led some people to believe he shouldn't be 1st ballot.

      3) He never played an important game in his life. This shouldn't matter as much for WR, but it doesn't help that the teams he was on were known for choking in the playoffs.
      I wouldn't say he never played an important game, unless you're only talking about Super Bowls. His teams went to the playoffs 10 of his 15 years and he played in 2 NFC Championship games.

        The Pro Football HOF only recognises achievements made in the NFL, AFL and AAFC. Remember when the HOF first opened its doors in 1963 there were still two rival leagues.

          Don't worry, Herschel may have a shot at another Hall of Fame.

              Im not sure if Craig is Hall worthy. He'd make the hall of very good, but im not sure about the Hall of Fame.

                Next you'll be saying that He Hate Me and Tommy Maddox should get in based on their XFL stats...just kidding

                But The USFL was substandard competition. When Walker got to the NFL he was above average. He only had 2 seasons over 1000 yards rushing in the NFL. He was a great receiver out of the backfield though, his receiving numbers are good for a running back.

                      I like Art Monk and thought he should have been in the Hall long before, but head to head, if one receiver was to get in that year, there's no way Monk should have went in over Carter.
                      Yeah, if Monk didnt go in last year Carter would have. They figured it was now or never for Monk last year.

                            You mean except for the guy he stabbed in the neck, right? He probably doesn't love or respect Irvin.

                              And he lost almost all of them.

                                I wonder who gets in first, Richard Dent or Charles Haley.
