    EG also has one of the worst statistical season for a starting RB in NFL history.

    His 2001 season. 315 att. 939 yards...2.97 ypc. (It's rounded to 3.0).

    He's not a HOF

    Probably the most recent relevant thread.
    YouTube channel- secret base, has a series that follows sports people that have beef with each other. Finally got to VY vs Fisher.

    I saw that Fisher vs VY video and you have pimple faced 20 year olds acting like VY came in an era when coaches had no idea how to use a running QB. As if we did not already have guys like Vick, McNair and McNabb before him.

    In short they ignorantly think that VY was a victim somehow which is BS.

    As everybody knows Fisher wanted Leinart while Floyd Reese wanted Cutler. Only Cutler was not a total bust. Fisher did not hate VY from the start I think he was put off by his maturity, his lack of intelligence and his work ethic.

    Steven Jackson was always on losing teams also.

    If I was an NFL linebacker I would be more frightened to tackle Jamal Lewis or Steven Jackson than Eddie. Eddie was a little taller, more of a target. Those guys hurt people. I watched a game where a linebacker reached out to arm tackle Jackson and his forearm snapped.

    As much as you love a guy because he was on our team you have to be realistic.

    Those names bring up another issue. Those players at their peak were certainly better than EG at his peak. Jamal Lewis in that 2000 yard season(2003) was a beast. He was like a prime Earl Campbell.

    Been saying it for years, he belongs in the conversation for sure.

    Eddie was feared by the likes of Ray Lewis and others

    He set the tone for an entire franchise for years

    He deserves consideration

    HOF should not be about SB wins as that's a team accomplishment..it shouldn't be solely about stats either..Eddie was the heart of this team and a great player in his generation... deserves consideration

    I agree,

    When you have other HOF players saying that they didn't like going up against him because how good he was, he should be in the consideration, stats aside.
