Missed one game in career for injury, NFL man of the year for charity, multiple all pro, played entire career with one team. Blocked for Marcus Allen and Priest Holmes. Slam dunk, no doubt, one of the best ever. What else can the man do? OK...win a Super Bowl, but that's not his primary department. That's primarily up to King Carl, who's now on year 16 of the five year plan...

Perhaps random schmucks down at the sports bar - the ones who always seem to have the newest jerseys and say things like, "I don't know why the Raiders haven't used Charlie Garner this year" - may not know who Will Shields is or just how good he is at what he does... but people that watch football on more than just a casual basis have known about him for a long, long time.

Yes, he'll be in the Hall of Fame. There is absolutely no question about that.

I'm sure there's a lot of teams kicking themselves for passing on Shields the 1st two rnds. Probably the misconception that Nebraska linemen have trouble pass blocking. If you look around the NFL there's a lot of Nebraska linemen on rosters around the League. Hell the guy was only a 3 time All American and won the Outland Trophy his senior year. John Hannah was probably one of the very best guards to ever play the game for the Patriots. Shields has been described as being on a plateau above him.

If i was on the hof selection committee, I would be seriously afraid for my life if I didn't vote him in first ballot. When he does quit, he will go down as the best guard ever. His work ethic, character, leadership and physical skills are unmatchable. He is
by far my favorite chief. He also has all of these attributes, and was not drafted during the "Vermiel Era", coincidence, I think not.

I know you guys might be knocked over with a feather by this, but Will Shields isn't known outside of KC, or the AFC West in general, or by football insiders, etc.

There are EXACTLY 6 spots every year for NFL Hall of Fame inductees.

I really, really doubt he's a first ballot guy. There's a backlog of pretty deserving guys that the committee wrestles with all the time. More importantly, Guards just aren't sexy.

That said, I'm sure he'll get in. 9 pro bowls is more than the average required to get into the HoF, and I think he's a lock. I'm just not sure about the first year (not at all sure).

I'm saying that ordinary football fans don't pay a helluva lot of attention to Guards, even ones that have as stellar a resume and reputation as Shields.

It doesn't help, of course, that the NFL is packaged the way it is (pump the pretty boy QBs and a few stars, and ignore the rest), or that KC wasn't a very good team for many of the past 8 or so years (not many playoff appearances, etc.)

and John Hannah is generally recognized as the best guard, possibly the best lineman, of all time.

It's REALLY tough to get in on the first ballot as an interior offensive lineman. That's just the way it is.

As you can see, that's not at all what you said. It was deft backpedal, however.

Shields needs a SB appearance to get a first ballot bid.

However, his career mirrors that of Hannah, save that all important SB appearance.

So if football insiders don't know about a guy who has 9 PB appearances, a handful a All Pro honors, several playoff appearances, and almost 200 consecutive starts, then I'd contend they are not at all football insiders.

They are casual fans.

However, his career mirrors that of Hannah, save that all important SB appearance.



And the countless Sports Illustrated articles blowing him for a decade.

Will Shields rep wil get him in maybe not 1st ballot.

DT is a toss up for 1st ballot.

As you can see, that's not at all what you said. It was deft backpedal, however.


Let me clarify:

The people who definitely know Shields:

1. Chiefs fans
2. AFC West hard-core fans
3. Football insiders (writers, players, coaches, scouts, etc.)

The ones who don't:

1. NFC fans (quick -- name ANY offensive linemen in the NFC except (1) Orlando Pace, (2) any former Chiefs player who went to the NFC (i.e. Tait), and (3) that left tackle for the Seahawks who gets franchised every year whose name is currently escaping me).

2. Casual NFL fans (i.e. most of them)

If you can name 10 offensive linemen in the NFC, then you're way ahead of me, and I consider myself a pretty big football fan. I definitely could NOT name any NFC interior linemen except Kruetz (or whatever the Center for the Bears is named), and Damien Woody, who was a former Patriot who went to the Lions last offseason.

While I couldn't rattle them off, just looking at a few rosters showed several guys I've heard of. Larry Allen is "pretty good".

Matt Stinchcomb
Larry Allen
Flozell Adams

I'm not sure I'd call anyone who doesn't think of Larry Allen as a big football fan. Its also pretty sad you didn't name Hutchinson or Matt Birk.

As far as naming 10 linemen in addition to Allen, Hutch, and Birk I thought of Kyle Turley, Bryan McKinney, Ruben Brown, Pork Chop Womach, Diehl (granted I can't think of his first name), Tom Nutten, Adam Timmerman, Flozell Adams, Marco Rivera, John Runyan, and Jordan Gross. Diehl, Brown, Rivera, Timmerman, and Nutten are all interior linemen.
