    Future Hall of Famers.

    I love how people think every player who is retiring and has played for a while is going into the Hall of Fame.

    Unless you are a true superstar during your playing days, a player is not going to get into the Hall of Fame any time soon.

    Football has a huge backlog of potential Hall of Famers as it is. Look at Art Monk and he hasn't gotten in yet. Harry Carson took years to get in to the point where he wanted his name withdrawn from consideration.

    The Football Hall of Fame selection method needs some serious reforms. Only 39 people pick the Hall of Famers. Only a maximum of of 6 players can be picked every year. Plus the old timers selections push the backlog of eligable players even more. And expansion has created a bigger pool of more eligable players.

    Unless you are Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Brett Favre, Marvin Harrison, and maybe LaDanian Tomlinson (needs to play a few more season), there is no guarantee you will get in the first time, or even the second or third time.

    This also means that players like Drew Bledsoe and Eddie George (despite what the homers and fangirls say) won't be getting in at all.

    maybe Reed if he can dominate for some more years






    My question is are Ray Lewis and Jon Ogden 1st ballot HOF?
    Yes, and I'd be stunned if either of them weren't.

    Ray Lewis is, and Jonathon Ogden deserves to be, but may have to wait another year.

    I would like to say Rod Smith has a chance. He has better stats than any undrafted wide receiver ever.

    Kevin Mawae needs more consideration I agree.

    I'd like to know who you dont think are locks because they all seem like locks to me...

    He'd need to put up some big stats... he is, however, still young. He needs to go back to 2004 form, with more TD's, and maintain that for the rest of his career.

    That's not entirely true, there is a remote chance Jerry Jones might buy the Hall of Fame. If that were to happen Whitten woud get in and Tony Romo would be named the greatest quarterback ever.

    Tory Holt should be a 1st ballot IMO. 5 straight seasons with 90 receptions or more. Had 6 seasons of 1300 receiving yards or more. 7 seasons of 1100 or more.

    Recs. 52, 82, 81, 91, 117, 94, 102, 93.
    Rec yads: 788, 1635, 1363, 1302, 1696, 1372, 1331, 1188
    TDs: 64

    a baller.
