Hall Fame Bound? NFL edition

You betcha

Player: London Fletcher, ILB, Washington Redskins

What gets him in?

  • 1,616 career tackles in 13 years
  • 11 consecutive seasons over 100 tackles
  • 32.5 career sacks
  • Although tackles aren't an 'official stat', it is widely assumed that only 1 NFL player (Junior Seau-1,635) has more career stops
  • 15 forced fumbles
  • 12 fumble recoveries
  • 16 interceptions
  • 2 touchdowns
  • Has never missed a game in his career
  • 2x pro bowler
  • Super bowl champion (XXIV)
  • 9x pro bowl alternate

What keeps him out?

  • Not a flashy player
  • Never the best linebacker in the league (ray lewis, zach thomas, junior seau, etc.)
  • Only 2 pro bowls
  • Quiet when dealing with the media
  • Not an overly hard or feared hitter

Final Verdict: IN

Why? Despite the fact that he's relatively unknown, Fletcher has been one of the most sound linebackers in the past decade. What really puts him in, albeit probably not a 1st ballot guy, is his super bowl ring.

WTF?

Last time I checked this was the NBAdraft.net website... Go to bed and don't wake up until you are well rested... Don't you EVER in your life put this non sense on the front page of this site... Who cares about the garbage Redskins anyway? And who gives two rats *beep* about London Fletcher or his chances of getting into the Hall? If you was going to say ANYTHING about football give us something that we give a F about... Go to sleep NOW!!!

Uhh ^

Now, whether the fact posting this was questionable, who cares. With the NBA lockout here to stay for a while, why can't people just post stuff so we never run out of stuff to talk about. I agree he should have posted this in the off-topic section, but he has been here way longer than us, so who gives a &$#%#[email protected]!? And to tell him to go to bed, who are you to to tell people what to do, man? You're response seemed a little cranky, so maybe it's you who should go to bed man, leave the dude alone.

Nice post, I think Fletcher gets in as well, +1.

SO I guess my 2008

is after 2009??? Yea... This was dumb... And you going along with it only tells me how small brains really are these days... This isn't news in the NFL... So many moves are going on right now in the NFL alone since the lock out is over... And he talks about London Fletcher getting into the Hall of Fame on a NBA Draft website??? Am I missing something? Theres tons of stuff to talk about B-Ball related, different things NBA players are into in the off season... Not to mention high school players... College Players... Go look up old legends get verse with yester years players... Talk about stats... London Fletcher front page? LMAO... GO TO BED NOW!!!

TC

I did not see this until now, and I can not hate on you wanting to do this, but I think it is not really a main board discussion. Off-Topic all day on this one, and I would discuss it with you. I will say, however, that I do not think London Fletcher has a great chance at making the HOF, as it is INCREDIBLY difficult to make in football. He is a great player, and he has been slept on for a majority of his career, but he was never in the same league as some of the better interior linebackers. That's all I will say, but if you post this on the off-topic board, I am sure we could delve into it more.
