    NFL HOF Couple Surprises??

    Jerry Rice, Emmitt Smith, Russ Grimm, and Dick LeBeau all in as expected. But Rickey Jackson and John Randle borderline guys also in. Thoughts??

    Rickey Jackson is not a hall of famer. John Randle is deserving, but suprised he got in this early. It took them years to get Derrick Thomas in. Shame on you Hall of Fame. 58

    Dermontii Dawson should be in. Perhaps the best center of all time.

    I agree with your take on Rickey Jackson.....good player but not great.

    Ricky Jackson was a great player. I think Pat Swilling was better in that 3-4 dome patrol defense.

    Re: NFL HOF Couple Surprises??

    both Randle and Jackson are top 10 all time in sacks. That's pretty hard for judges to ignore.

    Throw in Sam Mills and Vaughn Johnson and that was one of the greatest group of LB's assembled ever.....just didn't think any individually were HOF material.

    I agree with that and they both deserve to get in but I was a little shocked they got in this early. I could see Jackson getting in this year because the Saints are in the Super Bowl thou

    Sacks haven't been a registered stat all throughout the years though. I'm sure there are some old-timers that had good numbers too that were never tallied.

    Re: NFL HOF Couple Surprises??

    If I remember right there was a year where 10 of the 11 starters on the NFC Pro Bowl team came from the Saint and the Eagles.

    agreed, but it doesn't change the fact that they are still top 10 as far as the NFL statistics go. That is impressive to a selection committee regardless of when the league started tracking sacks.
