The organization began a Facebook/Twitter campaign this afternoon to get Curtis into the hall earlier than projected.

Pitch in to help the heart of the 1997-2007 New York Jets make his way to Canton.

Staying healthy and eating carries is an admirable trait, but to me a first ballot guy has to have elite abilities beyond durability

Then I guess it's a good thing he already missed out on first ballot last year, huh? Like I said last year, he should defniitely get in, but I t think it's certainly understandable if he doesn't get in right away due to some tough competition (like last year), but he sure as hell better get in before that tubby bastard Bettis.

Unfortunately bettis may be ranked higher cause of the SB.. don't agree with it, but it weighs heavily in the minds of votes.. just like the folks who over rate sanchez for going to championship 2x ;)

It doesn't help Curtis's cause that he didn't exactly seize his opportunities the few times he did see postseason action.








Dammit, not again. Why do I get sucked in?

I know, which is exactly why I said it, because without the Super Bowl it's not even a question. The fact that the guy was a backup on that team only makes it that much more ridiculous. My guess is they'll make it in the same year, which will probably be this year, unless there's a lot of top notch first-year eligibles (which is what happened last year), which I don't think there really are.

Curtis makes it on this year. I read someplace, I thought, that Bettis didn't make the final cut for this years choices. I could be wrong about that but I thought I remember reading it someplace

The difference is that Cumar is being considered for the HOF (and deserves to get in) and McNeil will never be considered or get in.

He will get in based on stats. But this is the truth. Not gonna badmouth him, simply note he was rarely dominant.

Be somewhat ironic if Parcells and Martin made it in the same year

Cris Carter was probably the best player overall in that group. Last years class was loaded.

Why would that be ironic? They are very close. Curtis has said he wants Parcells to induct him. If they get in together it might be the first time an inductee also served as a fellow inductee's inductor.

How on earth could you have Roaf that low?

I give Martin's chances about 50/50 because of his career totals - which are really impressive - but he shouldn't get in this year, again. There were just greater and more dominant, game-changing football players who (appropriately) should be ahead of him.
