    I can't wait until I'm a little older and I will know everyone on these lists. Right now I probably only know who 70% of those guys are.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    What a crock that Jim Marshall and Mick Tinglehoff aren't in the HOF! And Mick is never even mentioned!

    I agree most names I dont even recognize or I just recognize them because older people talk about them.

    If Irvin didn't win all those SB rings, would he be as close to getting in as he is?

    Do his numbers alone merrit it???

    I am asking, I haven't seen his number, don't remember where he falls on the list of other HOF rcvrs.

    I think his numbers probably merit it, unfortunately. I have never really liked that guy, he is so obnoxious! Check out his stats at the website below!

    Now that I really look at the stats, he only had one really great season, but they did have Emmitt too! Moss is already past almost everything that Irvin did!!

    I don't think he is an automatic this time around. I would like to see him squirm for a year or two????

    Yeah, after looking at the stats again, I would say he isn't a first ballot HOFer! But we all know who will be Randy Mizzle!! (sorry I had to throw my slang in there!)
