Warren Sapp gets voted in, Strahan gets snubbed. I call BS

70 posts in this topic

This is the absolute definition of a tragedy. I am utterly shocked and have no idea what to say. Strahan was the best DL of his generation, Sapp wasn't on his level. This is ridiculous.

Sapp should be in he has close to 100 sacks for a DT and he was beast in his prime, but i also think Strahan should have been in too, I wouldn't be shock if the voters felt sorry for Sapp's current finicial problem put him in hoping that HoF added to his name will get him out of debt, life after football for Strahan was been good, while Sapp has wasted his money like a ****..

Sapp was a gap shooter who got ridiculed on these forums his entire career for being an over rated blowhard. It wouldn't bother me if someone like Tim Brown got in over Strahan, but friggen Warren Sapp..... bull****.

I'm extremely surprised Strahan didn't make it in, but it's not like Sapp was a bad pick either. This was a really strong class and unfortunately some really great players were going to be left out. He'll get in next year.

Never liked Sapp he is overrated a blob of a player, I think he was just an average player nothing more and not worthy of the Hall.

Hi, you really think a "gap tooth" day time talk show host belongs in the HOF :roll: :roll:

Lewis is 10 times the player he is.

Hi, you're a dreamer.

I don't see why you have to make a case for Sapp not deserving to be in in order to make a case for Strahan to be in. Neither one of them is a compelling first ballot guy in my opinion. Both great players, but not compelling. One made it this year, the other will make it eventually.

Who cares?

Since you took the time to click the thread, I'd wager a guess that you do :unsure:

Hall of Fame needs to expand the number of players allowed in because it's getting ridiculous how many great players aren't in there. A true tragedy would be Tommy Nobis not being in the hall of fame almost 40 years after retirement.

Strahan is a pretty compelling first ballot guy. So many of todays DE's are gap shooters who don't play the run that well, Strahan was classic, he initiated contact, checked for the running back then went after the QB. Played the run as well as the pass and retired top 5 all time in sacks I believe. Manged to get 60-80 tackles each year despite being double and trippled on every play.

NO!!!!!!!!!!

This is suppose to be an elite club of special players. Any more would just water down the meaning it holds to be in the HoF. If anything I believe there are some years where less people should get in.

This is not a post about Strahan or Sapp.

When you consider the criteria HOF voters use when evaluating a candidate's "worthiness" it's no surprise that they didn't rate him as a 1st ballot HOFer:

1. Individual performance in comparison to his contemporaries:

Unfortunately for Ole' Gap Tooth, his #'s just don't stack up when compared to the 2 (unanimous, no less), 1st ballot HOF DEs from his generation.

- R White (played 15 seasons), 1,111 tackles, 198 sacks, double digit sacks in 12 of 15 seasons.

- B Smith (first 15 seasons), 1,054 tackles, 171 sacks, double digit sacks in 12 of 15 seasons.

- Strahan, (played 15 seasons), 851 tackles, 141.5 sacks, double digit sacks in only 6 of 15 seasons.

2. Team Accomplishements:

While he did play in 2 SBs (going 1 - 1), jersey did finish at .500 or worse in 8 of his 15 seasons.

So while IMO he does deserve to eventually get in, he's wasn't 1st ballot worthy and the voters obviously agree.

:nonono:

Larry Allen was the most dominate OG of his generation, Strahan was somewhere between (at best) 3rd to (at worst) 5th among his DE contemporaries depending where you slot DE/OLB Kevin Green (who was a HOF semi finalist the past 6 years but is not in) and DT/DE John Randle (who got in his 2nd year of eligibility).
