    Chris Doleman should get more consideration than he does. He has huge stats.

    If he had played all of his seasons in Frisco, Dallas, or New York, he would be in already. The move from Minnesota to Atlanta and the San Francisco hurts his chances.

    The voters for the Pro Football Hall of Fame named him to the 1990's All-Decade team (second team), so he may get in, but we'll have to wait and see.

    Cris Carter, Chris Doleman, Deion Sanders, Charles Haley, and Cortez Kennedy should get into the HOF. The older guys, Hanburger and Richter, should get in as well.

    I am still surprised that Ray Guy is not in yet. Ray Guy was the best punter in the league back in the 70s. For crying out loud, he was named to the 75th NFL Anniversary team! To keep him out, the HOF is a joke. Don Coryell, should have been in during the 90s. Lester Hayes not in? Come on now.

    The award for the nations best collegiate punter is also called the "Ray Guy" award. Sometimes the guys who get in or not resorts to nothing more than a popularity vote.

    Doleman and Carter should both get it IMO

    I hope Deion gets in. He was the first jersey I ever got. I still have it! Remember when Wilson made jerseys? lol I actually have a ton of Deion memorabilia. He was just awesome!

    Deion, yep the HOF really needs another self-promoting 'me' man.. maybe he can have Irvin as his presenter as well.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Unless, of course, he was called upon to make a tackle.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
