8 to the NFL Hall of Fame

Randy Moss :thdn: Talented. Thought he was as valuable to the Patriots as Tom Brady.

Terrell Owens :thdn: Bill Parcells, in Dallas, would not refer to him by name, calling him ""the player.''

Brian Urlacher -- Never saw him play

Brian Dawkins -- Never saw him play

Ray Lewis :thdn: Great player. Inspirational on the field. I have reservations about off field stuff.

Jerry Kramer :thup: Long, long overdue. As a young player, highly rated, he was a whipping boy for Lombardi. After practice, discouraged, wondering if he did not have what it takes, Lombardi told him: ''Son, one of these days, you're going to be the greatest guard in the NFL.'' -- paraphrased from his book Instant Replay

Robert Brazile :thup: Absolutely right.

Bobby Beathard :thup: As GM, along with Head Coach Joe Gibbs, he built the Washington Redskins into a powerhouse.

All worthy of the honour. Some with issues. A special one for this fan is Jerry Kramer. Of all the players, he was at the top of the list for people wondering why an athlete is not in the Hall of Fame. When I looked it up a few years ago, I was shocked he was not in the Hall.

Just IMO ...

Kramer and Lombardi
“Jerry Kramer did not know how good he was when he first joined the Green Bay Packers. You'd be surprised how much confidence a little success will bring.”
– Vince Lombardi[17]
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerry_Kramer
Before his election into the Hall of Fame in 2018, Kramer was noted for being a finalist for the Hall ten times without being voted in. In 2009, he was rated No. 1 in NFL Network's Top 10 list of players not in the Hall of Fame.
