Keep your fingers crossed for Derrick...almost 5 years to the day of his passing. :thumb:

If he'd just gotten ONE Super Bowl victory, it would be a no brainer. Derrick was one of those rare players that could decide the outcome of games all by himself. It will be interesting to hear the explanation if he doesn't make it in.

Only four? There needs to be an explanation as to why Derrick was not deemed to have the qualifications fro a first ballot entry. I bet Steve Young still has bruises from that safety Thomas gave him in '94. Ask him and Marino if they think Derrick is a HOF'er.

The next five years are going to be really, really bad. Thanks to the idiocy of the HoF, they're going to have to screw over another great player who should go in his first year to get Derrick in. I can't believe this and I don't know why I'm so upset. I knew he wouldn't make it in-but I wanted it so badly.

Yeah that would be a great sports story, "A pair of Twins in the Hall" I know maybe the Hall will make them wait until the 2010 until Emmitt gets in. Then Derrick can have their spots.

I'm not going to get my hopes up anymore. THis is awful. The only time I will get excited is if I am in Canton and can see them induct him in there personally. Otherwise I won't believe it. It might be NFL propapganda designed to fool us.

Looking at it - Aikman, Warren Moon, Reggie White, and Thurman Thomas. I think the voters have the potential to put all of those guys in.

I want Derrick to get in. I believe he deserves to be in. I just think we'll be discussing this situation for a couple of years to come.

Gun simply ought to show everyone on our D what Derrick was all about with about a 3 hour tape session, then fuggin put his number back on our helmets and go out there and say, not our D, this if for Derrick getting dissed at the Hall.

2006:
Deion Sanders- he's still playing!!! THat can't be legal. He still has 5 more years in my opinion. What is the deal on that. Can you have an active player in the HoF?

2007
Terrell Davis- Yes, he had a few good seasons. But he only played like 4 seasons right? I don't know but I remember he kind of fell apart in 98

2009
Shannon Sharpe- I will renounce all faith in the NFL if this jackass gets in before DT.

It was just a article I found obviously written before the season. It in no way implies they are all going to get in, but it gives you an idea of the best in the class.

If Scott Norwood hits that FG, Thurman Thomas is the MVP of XXV.

In the four Super Bowl appearances by the Bills, Thurman Thomas had the best individual performance of any player.

2006: Reggie White is guaranteed. Aikman doesn't have the longevity you like to see in QBs with big numbers, but his Super Bowls will get him in. Warren Moon is one of the most underappreciated QBs ever and is every bit of a HOF as Steve Young/Jim Kelly. He will get in.

I think Andre Reed is a better choice than Michael Irvin. Longer career and better productivity. Irvin gets so much hype because he played for the 90s Cowboys. Thurman Thomas might have to wait a few years, but he is deserving.


2007: I think Bruce Matthews will be the only one to get in. Maybe Carnell Lake sometime down the road.

2008: Cris Carter and Darrell Green. The others have no shot.

2009: Sharpe, Bruce Smith and Woodson are locks. The rest have no shot except Gary Anderson might once he officially retires.

What about Warren Moon? He was the QB for the Washington Huskies in 1979 leading them to the Rose Bowl and didn't get a shot to play in the NFL until 1984 because of the color of his skin. Can you imagine his career numbers if he had 4 more years? Sorry, Moon is a Hall of Famer.

Can you think of a better offensive line candidate than Bruce Matthews?

Even though I think he's overrated, Cris Carter only has the second most TD receptions in NFL history. Yeah, he's not worthy of the Hall of Fame.

2 things hurt Thomas:

1) Being a liability against the run early in his career. I'm one that believed he developed into a more complete LB in his latter years, but sadly we were all robbed of seeing him finish his career.

2) No SBs, and of the one AFC Championship he was benched due to the issue above.

That's what I despise about the NFL voters. They heavily factor in team accomplishments into HOF credentials. If you look at the HOF, a good number of inductees played on famous, well-known championship teams.

What I hate most about the football voting process, 40 egotistical know-it-all football writers get together behind closed doors and there is no record of their conversation and no actual record of their votes.

The process would be a lot better if they took the example from the baseball writers, added a hundred more voters, had their votes made public so there is accountability.

I said FIRST BALLOT.

IMO, Warren Moon is a compiler. He was NEVER "special", he was just "really good" for a long, long time.

Matthews deserves to be in the HoF, but not on the 1st ballot. Same with Chris Carter.

WTF has what he did before he got to the 49ers got to do with it? HE WAS WITH THE TAMPA BAY YUCCANEERS before that and they were still the most incompetent team in football at that time.

You're saying with a straight face that his TB stint therefore invalidates all the games won, all the passing titles, all the Super Bowl wins, all the incredible runs he accomplished?!?!?!

His years without Jerry Rice and the rest he threw almost twice as many INTs as TDs.

DT was not going to get in because of the notion, deserved or not, that he could not stop stop the run. I think that the problem was mostly later in his career when he was playing more and end position than linebacker. I think some serious campaigning is going to be needed to get him in.

No, no, and no.

Steve Young was an effective QB. He was a very effective QB.

A Hall of Famer he is not.

If that's not enough evidence, look at the numbers of Steve Bono and Elvis Girlbac as 49'ers. They were there the same time as young, and both looked great throwing to Young's 49'ers...

If that's not enough evidence, look at the numbers of Steve Bono and Elvis Girlbac as 49'ers. They were there the same time as young, and both looked great throwing to Young's 49'ers...

IIRC, the mayor of SF called Grbac an "embarrassment to mankind" when he was there.

And he was right. But he still looked good throwing to Rice behind a stacked line...

Yep and it got turned into some bs that grbac had a bad game because of his sick son or something like that.

Mayor apologized.

Pretty much any QB who has played great ball in the NFL but wasn't a Chief was just a Product of the System....

BTW, I notice Young still has the all time highest passer rating despite having to have toiled for years with the Yucks, with no offensive line, no running attack, and crap for receivers....

Well the thing with Young and passer rating was that the holds the record with 8 consecutive seasons of 90.0 or better passer rating. That's pretty impressive because the 2nd longest streak of 90.0 or better is only 4 years by Brett Favre... then five or six others with 3 straight, including Trent Green, who is the only one on that list who has an active streak. If Trent can have a 90.0 or better rating this year, he'd become only the third QB in the history of the NFL to have a 90.0 or better QB rating for 4 straight seasons.

warren moon is a first time balloteer... the dude through for 20K+ in the CFL and andother 40K in the NFL, that is over 60K yards of passing. Unreal.

I think DT will get in not next year, but year after.

Art Monk needs to be let in... he should have been inducted this year.

If simple longevity is the standard for the Hall of Fame, by all means let both Moon and Monk in...

Something to ponder.....

With CP apparently leaving after this year with DV (Carl hasn't had his contract extended by Lamar yet), will DT have more trouble making it in if a new regime takes over (with no ties to the DT era)? If CP leaves, I could see Gretz also leaving KCChiefs.com, and Gretz was the one who presented DT's case for getting in. I guess the new Chiefs rep would come from a new regime, and it may be someone who didn't see Thomas up close. Of course, being up close didn't help Gretz talk these jack@ssses into voting for him, so maybe it's a moot point.

I also think that this whole thing is a major blow to King Carl, who no doubt wanted to still be in charge of the Chiefs when Derrick got in. I'm wondering if Gretz is now in hot water with CP for not making a good enough case for DT to get in?

I honestly don't know enough about the rest of Warren Moon's career to say whether he should get in. He put up some pretty gawdy numbers over a very long period - and playing the run and shoot in the NFL no less. I do remember him absolutely embarrasing the Chiefs several times when we were supposed to have great defenses though. Based on his numbers and those clinics he put on against us I'm tempted to think the man belongs in the Hall.

and FWIW longevity is an important aspect for HOF consideration.

I don't think the ability to compile stats should be a consideration for the HoF.

I know I've sounded like a jackass on this thread today, but I HATE the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I hate the system, I hate the criteria, I hate everything about it.

How do you differentiate who should be in the Hall of Fame then? If Warren Moon doesn't belong in the Hall of Fame, then who does?

Guys that can take over a game all by themselves and win. Warren Moon was really good at racking up stats over a long period of time. But when did you ever see Warren Moon just take a team on his back and will them to win?

Willie Roaf is a HoFer. Joe Montana is a HoFer.

I don't believe Warren Moon is.
