Making the Cut
What makes a player Hall of Fame worthy? Is it statistics alone, or are off-the-field behavior and intangibles included as well? HOF voting can be a complex task, especially for pro football. Given how the game has evolved continuously over the years, what may have been a dominant career 20 years ago may only be an average one in the present day. A certain player has come under recent discussion regarding if he should be given the honor of being enshrined in Canton.
I am going to conduct an experiment and YOU THE READER will assist me. I will compare the career statistics of several players and YOU will tell me if they are HOF worthy. Many times when discussing great players, fans are affected by personal biases towards their favorite player. So in the interest of fairness, we will keep the players anonymous and base this strictly on merit.
Below you will find the four players I have selected. Review their stats, and then vote on the poll to the left of the page. Once the poll has closed, I will discuss their results, some of which may surprise you. I only ask that you not attempt to research who the players are. If you know who they are, try to remain unbiased as much as possible.
