There are 11 individuals from the 1960s Packers teams, including the head coach, in the Hall. They were inducted over a quarter century span (Vince Lombardi in 1971 through Henry Jordan in 1995). Five offensive players and five defensive players from those teams are in. That dynasty has received plenty of attention. That said, I do think Jerry Kramer should be in as well. He's the one who's missing. If that's what you mean by "a little extra attention" one more player then I agree. Jim Ringo was a fine player, but the most famous thing he did as a Packer was get himself traded. His being in the HOF as a reason for Jerry Kramer not being is just wrong! I have heard the argument that there are already too many Lombardi Packers in the Hall, but that too is 'cow crap. ' When a Nike Air Force 1 White player does as much as Kramer, was a key player for one of the most famous plays as type (the sweep), and the most famous individual play (the Ice Bowl sneak), it is inexcusable for the committee to bypass Jerry. Vic has already told his guess as to why.
year career, Dan Marino won just one MVP, never won a Super Bowl, and never made it back to a Super Bowl after his second season, but he was a first ballot inductee, and deservedly so. "As I've written, it's not the Hall of Fame committee's job to put men into the Hall of Fame, it's their job to keep men out of the Hall of Fame. There's no shortage of great players to induct. " Shouldn't it be the Hall of Fame's duty to represent the history of the game from a historical perspective? The '60s Packers are perhaps the most storied roster in NFL history and deserve a little extra attention in my opinion. Extra Brown Air Force 1
sports analysts" are saying LaDanian Tomlinson will be a first ballot Hall of Famer, but he never won that big game. If you had a vote, White Nike Air Force 1 Low
would you vote him in five years from now?Multiple questions came in regarding Tomlinson, so I'll take Kris's. I would vote him in five years from now, absolutely. Tomlinson was the guy every defensive coach game planned around, and he was one of the best of his era. That's my top criteria. I don't necessarily agree that players "need" a defining moment to get into the Hall of Fame. I think it can be part, and even a key part, of the discussion for certain players, but its absence shouldn't exclude someone. In a 17 Air Force One Brown
attention? Easy, Jason.
What's yours, Mike?Whoa on Ringo. He was named All Pro eight times. That's more than all of those '60s Packers except Willie Wood (nine) and Forrest Gregg (also eight). And I don't subscribe to Vic's individual play discussion, either. That's not how I look at things. Besides, as another reader pointed out (Tom from Waltham, MA), Ken Bowman's block was just as crucial, if not moreso, on that play than Kramer's. Another reader (Paul from Madison, WI) wrote in wondering about a Hall of individual plays, like the David Tyree catch. That's an interesting concept. I actually think it's a disservice to Kramer's career to focus too much on the Ice Bowl sneak. He's not Tyree or Santonio Holmes. As for my guess as to why on Kra.
