2013 Hall of Fame

Posted: 2/2/2013 8:20 PM

2013 Hall of Fame 


Curley Culp made it.
Strahan didn't.
I'm happy to see and ex-AFL player make it (and not an MFJ who dishonestly broke an ex-Jet's record).
But why not Joe Klecko, the only player to make All-Pro at all three DL positions?

How do y'all feel?

Yeah, I don't think we'll ever see Klecko or Winston Hill in the HOF. NFL network had some HOF voters on discussing the overall process.  We need a stronger voice from the NYC rep to lobby for these guys.

i think it was a good class.  i'm glad parcells made it...he should have gotten in last year though.  it would have been great for he and cmart to get in together.

as to strahan, he will probably get in one day, but to me, he's not a 1st ballot hall of famer.

Yeah all the people voted in deserved it...I would hope to see Klecko in the HoF some day, but who knows...I still think they need to put Ray Guy in the HoF one day as well

Andre Reed deserves to be in the HOF, he was a great player.  Ray Guy will probably get in one day.  Klecko, I doubt it.

Yeah Andre Reed should definitely get in eventually...don't think we'll see anyone from the Jets make it again until 5 years after Revis retires...

Curly Culp was a BEAST back in the day. Glad he made it. Kecko, of course, deserves it. Maybe if we went on the NFL network and ran his mouth and acted a fool, he'd have a better chance

Given the prejudice against adding any more players from the Lombardi, Noll, & Walsh teams, I'm a bit surprised, (and pleased), the Packers Dave Robinson was selected & inducted.
He was a part of the 60s 3-peat team though. I guess that weighs heavily.

I remember him playing for the Skins late in his career when I was a kid

Klecko should get in, I look at HOF players in this regard. Did every team on the schedule have to address the player in their game plan, week in and week out for several years?

"Wrong-Way" Marshall?
It's kind of an embarrassment, like inducting Leon Lett would be.
Hella athlete Marshall was though, he DOES deserve induction for both his play AND his longevity.
