    I hope he does, but I think the HOF is a joke.
    The only reason a beer sweats around Canada is because he's decided it will be the next beer he drinks.

    Like I said....HOF is a joke. I don't think either of these two guys put enough cocaine in their noses to get in anyways.

    I don't know if D.T. will ever get in for two reasons. The Chiefs dismal playoff record while he was here and Kansas City being a small market. I did a lot of research, which I really hate to do, but came up with some surprising stats. Right now, D.T. is ranked 11th on the all-time sack list, which, I figure, is probably the most looked at statistic for a defensive player that isn't in the secondary. Of the ten people ahead of him, one is still playing (Strahan), one is ineligible, (B. Smith), one is a finalist this year (Dent), and two are in the Hall of Fame (R. White, L. Taylor). I'm going to put each players stats below, with the exception of Smith, Strahan, Taylor and White. I'm including Dent's because he hasn't been enshrined yet.

    Kevin Greene- 160sacks, 5 int, 26 FF, 22 FR, 3 Safeties, 24 points

    Chris Doleman- 150.5 sacks, 8 int, 43 FF, 24 FR, 2 Safeties, 22 points

    John Randle- 137.5 sacks, 1 int, 27 FF, 11 FR, 0 Safeties, 6 points

    Richard Dent- 137.5 Sacks, 8 int, * FF, 13 FR, 1 Safety, 14 points

    Leslie O'Neal- 132.5 Sacks, 3 int, * FF, 16 FR, 0 Safeties, 12 points

    Ricky Jackson- 128 Sacks, 0 int, 41 FF, 29 FR, 1 Safety, 2 points

    Derrick Thomas- 126.5 sacks, 1 int, 45 FF, 19 FR, 3 Safeties, 30 points
    *- Could not find stats for O'Neal and Dent's FF

    How could you pick, if you were picking by stats and not by heart? Compare, say, Chris Doleman's stats to D.T.'s. Doleman isn't even a finalist this year. So, I don't know if he'll ever get in. I just wanted to throw this out there to you all.

    Same here, but I'm not holding my breath.
