Rice gets some props at 97. Sapp is a runner up for 99. I didn't have time to look for any other runner up. Thinking maybe Brooks might be one.

This one was interesting because it crossed the boundaries of multiple sports (and even species!).

Brooks and Sapp got consideration.  That makes sense.

Gale Sayers

Runner-up: Crazy Legs Hirsch.

Worthy of consideration: Bill Laimbeer, Mike Haynes.


Only 2 guys in the 'worthy' column?  Alstott's a future Hall of Famer and is the most famous FB in recent history.  No, I am not kidding you.

^^^Bill Laimbeer sucked rocks.


Hairy, sweaty-smelling, sore-covered rocks.



I can see why Alstott deserves mention over this turd with eyes.

Alstott's a future Hall of Famer . No, I am not kidding you.

Now you are....LOL.  Alstott is a Tampa hero but not many outside the area pay much attention to him.  There is no chance of him getting in the HOF.

5088 yds, 58 TDs rushing   2284 yds, 13 TDs receiving....FOR A FULLBACK!  That's HOF worthy to me...not to mention he's the leading non-kicking scorer for the franchise and the most popular player.  AND he got those stats in a time where the FB gets little to no touches a game.

As for FBs in the Hall right now(modern era)...
That's more yds rushing than: Marion Motley
That's more yds receiving than: Larry Csonka, John Henry Johnson, Marion Motley, Joe Perry, Jim Taylor
That's more TDs rushing than:  John Henry Johnson, Marion Motley, Joe Perry
That's more TD receiving than: Larry Csonka, John Henry Johnson, Marion Motley, Joe Perry, Jim Taylor

If he doesn't get into the Hall it'll be a traveshamockery.

Duemig is one of the biggest Alstott supporters on the planet, and even he admits/concedes that he will probably not get in the HOF.

You said a mouthful there, my friend!

That's impressive they put Simeon ahead of Cornelius Bennett.   Bennett was one helluva player.
