I think this strung off another topic that had kind of strayed when I was defending the fact that I though Eddie would go. Others argued that he would not. I have always said that I do not think he is first ballot but I think in 5 years he is a good shot. The players I mentioned before Rice, E Smith, etc all left there teams the way George did and did not retire on the team they were known for. Rings are not required for the HOF. Dan Marino would be the most obvious example.
