On Saturday evening, running back Curtis Martin was among six former NFL players enshrined into the league’s Hall of Fame class of 2012.  While Martin, who spent time in New England and New York, had a brilliant career, he never won a Super Bowl or rushed for 2,000 yards in a single season.  Terrell Davis did.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter raises a great point.  Davis deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, and one day, he should be.

Davis was the only back in NFL history who earned season MVP and Super Bowl MVP awards in addition to rushing for 2,000 yards in a single season, winning back-to-back world championships and rushing for 100 yards in seven consecutive playoff games, all of which his team won.  That’s quite a résumé.

Is it a Hall of Fame résumé?  We think so.  And Schefter agrees.


    …and until he does I can’t take the HOF seriously.

    Here’s my problem with the hall of fame. You’re either a hall of fame player or not. Here’s how I’d fix it.

    First year that you’re eligible you either get voted in or not. If that means ten players get in then fine if it means you get no players then fine too. And if you don’t get in then you’re not hall of fame material.

    And then every ten years those players that don’t get in get another chance for those players who didn’t get in first time. For all those players who are currently eligible for more than ten years they are voted on – yes or no.

    And everything is fixed. You can all thank me later

    Completely agree with Schefter and Jon =)
