    It’s certainly subjective and I do like how the author points out his criteria but I think he’s missing a large category that I believe HoF voters look for in TD. Total, rushing, receiving

    Craig has 73 total. Good enough for a tie at 95 all time, coincidently with a comparable RB, Brian Westbrook (Craig better runner, Westbrook better receiver to me)

    I think it’s what holds EG back too. 78 total is only good enough to tie for 70. Also with another consideration name, Steven Jackson.

    That’s where I think Shaun Alexander’s name should get mentioned. 112 total TD (17th) and a MVP nominee, BUT another author criteria that I believe is considered, is that 10k mark where Alexander fell short.

    I think the TD number is what will prevent Andre Johnson from being the first texan HoFer. He’s around 40 for WR and also 5 TE ahead not in.

    And that's where I believe it can't be all about stats...Eddie was a great running back in his era and what he meant to his team...a few are in the HOF without the stats because they were great in their era

    I agree that stats shouldn’t be the only measure and that’s EG meant more to Tennessee than his stats showed. It would’ve been nicer to win a SB for him, but at least make a longer run.

    Eddie didn’t carry a team to the grand prize. He WAS great RB but not a force that bent others to his championship. And IMO was a Barry Sanders type difference.
