How is Patrick Willis in the Hall of Fame when Seth Joyner is not?


Eric Allen also shut out last night. Those great Buddy Ryan Eagles defenses are only represented in the Hall by Reggie White. Doesn’t seem right.
Imma say Willis' 5 1st team all pro nods n one 2nd team all pro to Joyner's two 2nd team all pro nominations made the difference.

I get Hester is the Goat returner but multiple guys who were better football players were left off.

Regarding the Devin Hester conversation:

"Even without touching the ball, Hester impacted games. The Bears led the league in starting field position every year from 2006 through 2010."

I don't mean it as an insult but Antonio Gates obviously had more value

There will always be that,so apparently your saying Hester should never get in.....??

Nah,his time was now,Gates will get his too while others get left off.....it is what is.....

Hes the GOAT returner,he deserved it.

And then there’s Brian Mitchell with 19K return yards never getting a mention……23K all purpose yards for his career……

I think you’ve gotta let them have it. That’s an all time NFL franchise that has been dog shit for most of the last 40 years. What else are they gonna get?

You goober.....lmao.

Thats so damn funny I have to post that twice......

And to answer your question of " what else are we gonna get",well move up to the 9th spot again and find what else.....
Atleast this time you may get it right......
Your team has karma going against it with your " generational" bust......,while we are on the rise and with your 4th rd pick......
And the Bears dont draft players with off field issues so we were not taking him anyways......so thanks for the gumball Popeye.

I do think Gates is probably a lock to make it in next year but he really should've been first ballot.

The WR logjam is unfortunate. Hester being the GOAT returner does make him stand out but I dont really know how many receivers really strive to be the GOAT returner. I do think Steve Smith is the type of player you expect to miss out on the HOF but he pretty much stopped returning kicks once he became diva WR. Tyreek Hill mostly stopped returning kicks after getting into the groove in the NFL.

I suspect that QB is going to be a really interesting HOF discussion moving forward. WR is the interesting discussion for that era imo. I actually thought Holt and Bruce were better Rams players than Kurt Warner but Warner is more important to the league so I get that. Andre Johnson getting in is good.

Don’t make fun of retards. It’s unbecoming.

...and not accurate. A returner who returned a kick from 5 yards deep in the endzone to the 19 yard line got accreditation for 24 yards rather than -1 yard as it should have been when the ball would have came out to the 20.
