Eight people joined the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio this past summer including Brett Favre, Marvin Harrison and Orlando Pace. The inductees brought the count of people in the Hall of Fame to a total of 303. That might seem like a lot, but there are plenty of players that haven’t been selected for induction that should have been. Then again, there are some that probably shouldn’t have gotten in to begin with, so maybe the number needs to stay as it is right now and change the roster a little bit.
Out of the people that belong in the Hall of Fame that haven’t been enshrined, there are some, that include coaches such as Don Coryell, who revolutionized the game we know today. That personal opinion aside, we want to focus solely on the players with this list. We’ll take a look at the accomplishments of those that both have and haven’t been enshrined, as well as some statistics and historical context.
While this is sure to cause some debate between football fans, it’s time to take a look at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Here are eight players that shouldn’t have gotten in, and eight that need to be inducted already.
