    Franks chances have gone down. It's hard for a TE. Especially with a couple of active TEs out there right now making better cases. Gonzales is a lock, and depending on their next few years, Heap and Shockey might end up being better candidates than he is. Gates could pass him if his career keeps on the same track...

    I loved Frank, but I don't think he has much of a chance.

    I'm not even touching the Eddie debate, it's been done. If you really want to argue it, look up one of the old threads.

    It's different from baseball; they don't "go in as" anything.

    Quotes on Hall of Fame OL Bruce Matthews

    SUMMARY: "Actually, I believe my best years were when he was in the center position. You knew he was going to get it done no matter what, and some of his greatest games were played later in his career," said RB Eddie George. "He would dominate the younger opposition each and every time."

    "His first reps were unbelievable. He was going 100 miles an hour on every snap," said Titans OL coach Mike Munchak. "He may not have been blocking the right guy but he would chase someone all over the field on every play. His feet and legs were moving in every direction possible, like a human weed whacker, tripping everyone in his path, but he still found a way to get his block."

    "My fondest memory, the thing I'll carry with me forever, was turning back and looking at Bruce holding up the Lamar Hunt Trophy in Jacksonville after winning the AFC Championship game," said Titans head coach Jeff Fisher.
