    Jim Marshall and Mick Tinglehoff not in the HOF, but HE is?

    I know this is probably beating a dead horse, but I just wanted to AGAIN say that HOW in the HE!! is Mick Tinglehoff or Jim Marshall NOT in the HOF, and this guy is?

    Rayfield Wright:

    13 seasons, 182 games played, 6-time All-NFL (1971-1976)



    Mick Tinglehoff:

    17 seasons, 240 consecutive games played, 7-time All-Pro (1964-1970)

    (side note about Mick: 7-time All-Pro, not in the HOF. Jim Langer, 2-time All-Pro, IS in the HOF)

    Jim Marshall:

    20 seasons (1960-1979), 282 consecutive games played, 2-time All-Pro (1969, 1970)

    Rayfield Wright may deserve it, but these guys DEFINITELY deserve it!

    It is MAINLY because Wright and Langer played on Super Bowl winners that they get the push...which is total BS...since football is supposed to be a TEAM game with the best TEAM winning the Super Bowl every year....whereas the HOF should recognize the best INDIVIDUALS at their respective positions. It's almost like the players who are lucky enough to end up on a Super Bowl-winning team get to "double dip"...they get the ring AND the HOF if they are on the margins...while greater players like Marshall and Tinglehoff get SKUNKED!!!

    TOTAL BS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    I am with you. I never like the HOF anyway. You get a bunch of writers; old sportswriters and new sportswriters, who have never seen some of these guys play. Or if they have, they have some chip on their shoulder against the guy, so they don't vote him in because of "X".

    Jim Marshall should have been in a long time ago. IMO.

    For *bleeps* sake, get these two legends in the Hall already!

    It's makes absolutely no sense, and it's a bit unfair. Tingelhoff and Marshall should have been inducted long ago.

    Winning a super bowl should have nothing to do with getting in the hall. Yeah it's nice, but it should just be the stats the voters look at. Put them in already!!! So did Lawerence Taylor get in for all coke he snorted?
