    Adams for sure should be in.
    I'd like to see McNair in - EVENTUALLY - since he personified what a football player is.

    George... I just don't see it. Unless there is a honorable mention...

    The hall of fame is too exclusive and too elite for players like Eddie and Steve. Sorry but they were not good enough for long enough.

    Perhaps if they had won a ring together but they didn't so end of story.

    There are only 23 QBs in the hall of fame. How in the hell does Steve Mcnair deserve to be in that kind of elite company? He was simply not good enough long enough! What fantasy land would you have to be living in to think he is that deserving?

    Eddie George is now 24th all time in rushing yardage. He will soon be 25th when Steven Jackson passes him.Again not good enough long enough!

    Who on this list deserves to be in the hall?

    Fred Taylor
    Thomas Jones
    Edgerrin James
    Cory Dillon
    Warrick Dunn
    Ricky Watters
    Ricky williams
    Jamal lewis

    All those guys are ahead of Eddie in career rushing yards. So they should be in also?

    Time only makes Eddie's case weaker as more and more backs pass him by the all time rushing stats. 10,000 yards used to be elite now it is just a good career.

    Adams should be the only one to make it. McNair and George didn't do enough to make it

    He really should. Bud gets a lot of heat, especially from the bitter Texans (Former Oilers) fans that come around here every Texan week. Bud Adams, love him or hate him, is a builder in this league. He along with Lamar Hunt started the old AFL in Hunt's basement. A league so successful it eventually merged with the NFL. He is not some rich guy that bought an established team. He is not some rich kid who inherited a team. He helped build the league. For that he deserves to be in the HoF.

    Steve and Eddie shouldn't make it. But then Warren moon shouldn't have either, so who knows.

    By what margin do you believe that Warren Moon shouldn't of been a HoF'er?

    His ranking are all top ten:
    Yards: 49,3425 (5th)
    Comps: 3988 (6th)
    TDs: 291 (8th)

    And he played just as long as Marino and Elway.
