Sapp is great and a deserved Hall of Famer so this in no way is a criticism of him, but it's impossible to play a position at a higher level than Derrick Brooks did.
I have no doubt the Brooks will be a first ballot HOFer but for anyone to say he's more deserving than Sapp is craziness to me!!
Dungy is going to wait. Bill Parcells waited 4 years. Dungy will wait at least 3, and the only reason he has a chance to get in that early is that he's so beloved by everyone. Brooks will be close. I think he gets in first ballot, but only if no contributors (Tagliabue/Modell) get in. If one of those two do get in, Brooks might have to wait an extra year. Strahan is a 100% lock for next year, as is one receiver (either Harrison or Reed), I think Bettis gets in though he really doesn't deserve it. And history has shown that if need be, they will force a player who has been waiting for a while in (likely Haley). They won't have every player inducted be someone who has only been waiting a year or two. So, that leaves one spot for either Brooks or a contributor.
are you stating that Brooks is the greatest LB to ever play the game?
