  • Potential Hall of Famers

    This should be an interesting topic to generate some debate. List all of the potential Hall of Fame players on your teams roster. Avoid young guys that still need a few dominant years to even be in consideration.

    I'll start...

    Packers

    Charles Woodson - Already a lock.

    Aaron Rodgers - Should continue to put up gaudy numbers and should have a few more shots at Super Bowls. Pretty hard to imagine him not making it unless his play falls off a cliff or he gets hurt.

    Nick Collins - His season-ending and possibly career-ending injury puts this in doubt but Collins was on pace for a HOF career. Probably the most underappreciated Packer by national media.

    Greg Jennings - Very outside shot at this point. Probably would have to win multiple championships and play at an elite level well into his 30s.

    Clay Matthews is excluded for now because he doesn't have a long enough track record yet.

              Can we make a rule where you need at least 1,000 posts before you start a new thread? It would be a good start to reclaim the NFL forum.

                Here's a good rule. Don't open a post, read it, and respond to it if you have no interest.

                    Urlacher is a lock. I think Peppers is too. Despite John Gruden calling him a future Hall of Famer on Sunday, I do not think Briggs will get in. Hester should get in.

                    Two guys who potentially could get in are Robbie Gould and Matt Forte. Robbie Gould probably won't because he is a kicker. But he may go down as the most accurate kicker of all time. That is saying a lot when he plays in Chicago, which might be the hardest place for a kicker. As for Matt Forte, I don't think he'll ever be a 1,500 yard back. But if he strings together some Marshall Faulk type years (1200 yards rushing, 800 yard receiving) he could potentially get in.

                    One guy not on the Bears I think will get in but shouldn't is Michael Vick. He is not a Hall of Fame caliber player. But fifty years from now, can you talk about this decade of football without mentioning Vick?

                      This is almost impossible to do, the players you'd think might have a shot for Atlanta are too young in their career to really tell.

                      Falcons:

                      Tony Gonzalez: 1st Ballot Hall of Famer. Not much of it was really done here though.

                      Roddy White: Doubtful unless he goes on an absolute tear for the next five seasons or wins a couple of Super Bowls. Has had probably two "elite" years, two good years, and two bad ones.

                      Matt Ryan: He probably has the best shot of anyone on the team. So tough to tell at this point, but he'd have to win a couple Super Bowls.

                      John Abraham: Great sack artist, not hall of fame worthy IMO. If he didn't struggle with injuries his entire career maybe.

                      Michael Turner: Almost no shot, has had one really elite season, and then has been good-great for the rest of his time here. Spending all that time on San Diego's bench doesn't help either.

                      Other guys I want to mention like Sean Weatherspoon and Julio Jones I can pretty much make no argument for at this point, other than they have looked good so far.

                        Joe Thomas.

                        Hopefully Joe Haden ends up having that type of career.

                        Oh yeah, and Ryan Pontbriand!

                              Would be tough for Briggs to not make it and have Urlacher make it since Briggs has arguably been better for the past few seasons. I'm not sold 100% on either but it's almost like if you let one in you have to let the other.
