Deion, Faulk, Terrel Davis, Eddie D and Tim Brown need to be in and Charles Haley shouldve been in already but they dont like him.
looks like Chris Carter is going to get the shaft again. I don't understand why that guy isn't in the HOF already. He had hands of GLUE!!!
Kevin Greene is 3rd all-time in sacks. He has to get in at some point.

Personally, I think Cortez Kennedy looks a little strange on this list.

Also, I think Ricky Watters should be on the list too.
Model. I dont like what he did to Cleveland or how he did it. I think that should bar him from the HoF. Don't expect many people to agree with me, by the way.
the ones I kind of question are Bettis, Brown, Faulk, Davis, and Martin. Some of the other guys were before my time or I only caught the tail-end of their careers--like Greene, Doleman, and Kennedy--so its tough to say about them. But as to the ones I listed, they were great players who played on some very good teams and did great things in the league..but are they Hall of Famers? I really don't know. At some point the bar has to be raised. The numbers average players are putting up in this era make it difficult to assess players from different eras, but at some point you have to say that having gaudy numbers alone isn't enough. At some point you have to say that players have to be really special, with iconic moments to go along with the numbers.
