    Not giving my opinion.


    Who do you think is better of the two? and do you think either/none/both should be in the Hall of Fame?

    But not handling short yardage works both ways. If he ran short yardage more often sure his YPC might have gone down a little, but then his TDs would have have gone up as well.

    Listen, both Eddie George and Tiki Barber had about 5 years of brilliant production. I'm not sure that their overall stat totals and total amount of dominance are enough to make a clear HOF argument.

    I know, but he still isn't HOF worthy. I'm saying being in the public eye can only help a player who is borderline HOF. Or get someone who should be in the HOF, earlier than they deserve to be.

    They were never good players. It will help Shannon Sharpe although he is terrible on TV.

    Tiki is a borderline Hall of Famer, though he has more of a part of a foot in the door than other borderline guys.

    Tiki shouldn't come close, he had a few very good seasons and a bunch of meaningless action. Terrell Davis was similar only his productive seasons were great and he's not going to get in.

    eacan sums up why George shouldn't either.
    Terrell Davis could have been one of the greatest running backs ever if he did not have some 300 pound guy roll up on his leg. And that was his own teammate that did it. It was an accident though.
