I just don't get the HOF snubbing of Otis Taylor. I'm no master of stats and maybe someone can clear it up for me but why has Otis been forgotten by the Hall?

If they put in Emmitt Thomas, Otis Taylor, Derrick Thomas, and Todd Blackledge, I will be happy.

He was nominated by the Senior's committee. He has a real good shot with his number of career interceptions, the ring, and the fact he's been an NFL assistant for like 20 years. Senior's committee recomendations make it more often than not.

Outstanding!

Top ten all time interceptor and it's taken this long?

WTF is wrong with the selection committee?

I'm glad to see Emmitt getting some recognition. He and Johnny Robinison are both legitimate candidates.

I loved Otis Taylor, and he was my boyhood idol, but I could see Emmitt and Johnny getting in before him. Those of us who saw him know that he transcended stats, but the new generations just see the stats, and that'll hurt him.
