I decided to look at a few running backs and QBs who are in the HOF. What I found out was troubling. I looked up their career records at www.pro-football-reference.com . After looking at the player's numbers tell me why they are in the Hall of Fame!?
HALL OF FAME RUNNING BACKS
Player Team Attempts Yards Avg TDs
Cliff Battle 839 3,511 4.2 23
Tony Canadeo Packers 1,025 4,197 4.1 26
Bill Dudley Steelers 765 3.057 4.0 18
Harold Red Grange Bears 170 569 3.3 21
Yes, thats the famous Red Grange that the media created myth!? 3.3 per carry!?
Paul Hornung Packers 893 3,711 4.2 62
I know that the Packers won a couple championships with Hornung but these stats are great? Hell there are 6 Dallas' backs with better numbers? I mean 3,711 yards total!?
Tuffy Leemans Giants 919 3,132 3.4 17
Ollie Matson Chi. Cards 1,170 5,173 4.4 40
John McNally Packers 120 386 3.2 5
Bronco Nagursky Bears 633 2,778 4.4 25
Yes, thats the famous Bronco with a whopping 2,778 yards rushing. Another media creation? These stats are incredible. I can't believe it.
Frank Gifford Giants 840 3,609 4.3 34
Rec. 367 5,434 14.8 43
Ok, Frank was a good receiver but a Hall of Famer!? Are those great numbers!? Calvin Hill had similiar numbers, hes never been considered for the HOF?
Calvin Hill Cowboys 1,452 6,083 4.2 42
Rec. 271 2,861 10.6 23
Herschel Walker is another Dallas' back with better numbers then Frank Gifford.
H. Walker Cowboys 1,954 8,225 4.2 61
Rec. 512 4,859 9.4 21
Both these Cowboys haven't been considered for the HOF. More media HOF farces are..
Art Rooney Steeler Owner 0 Division Titles Below .500 as an owner
It was his son Dan who had the success with the Steelers. I guess Art was a good old boy huh!", drinking whiskey and rum!! Hes in the HOF! Just like Jim Kelly who got in first ballot while Irvin had to wait!? What a joke! Its a popularity poll.
Now a few of the QBs who are in the Hall of Shame!
QB. Att. Comp. Pct. TDs INTs
J. Namath 3,762 1,886 50.1 173 220
Namath threw 47 more interceptions then TDs! Are you kidding me!? Yea, he threw for alot of yards but that ratio is absolutely dreadful. A completion pct. of 50.1!? Another media created myth. Is there room for Danny White!? He had a much better TD/INT ratio!Redicuious! Still more alarming numbers!
Att. Comp. Pct. Tds. Ints.
Bobby Layne Lions 3,700 1,814 49.0 196 243
He had 47 more INTs then TDs? What was the media looking at!? C'mon, you tell me!? A completion average of 49%!? That is a great player!?
Weeb Ewbank 130- 129 as a coach of the Jets is in the Hall of Shame!?
ANY ROOM FOR QUINCY CARTER !!!!!!!!?
I look at the great players in my team's history and all the players that aren't in. The Cliff Harris, Charley Waters, Harvey Martins, Ed Jones, Chuck Howley, Lee Roy Jordan, Cornell Green and what about all the offensive linemen that helped the Cowboys go 20 straight winning seasons? Only one o linemen in the Hall? Why is Tony Dorsett in the top 7 in alltime rushing!? Where are the Pat Donavans, Herb Scotts, Eric Williams, Mark Stepnoski, John Nilands, and Nate Newtons? These guys aren't even on the consideration list. How about Drew Pearson and Tony Hill who have better numbers then Swann? These writers are clowns. Look at some of these players the media has put in the Hall of Fame!? They've made a mockery of the sport with irresponsible voting. Check the websites, these stats are accurate and the people who vote are classless morons.
