    Polls push “Air Coryell” to the top

    The Talk of Fame Network   The Denver Broncos produced a zillion yards, touchdowns and records last season, but they couldn’t overcome two obstacles — the Seattle Seahawks and you. Despite averaging a whopping 37.9 points per game and having quarterback Peyton Manning throw an NFL-record 55 touchdown passes, the Broncos weren’t your favorite NFL offense. In fact, they weren’t even close, finishing last in our four-team poll of all-time greatest offenses — well behind the winner, the 1981 San […]

    State Your Case: Jerry Kramer

    by Ron Borges Talk of Fame Network When it comes to the Green Bay Packers wing of the Pro Football Hall of Fame it’s a crowded place but at least one seat remains mysteriously empty. It’s the one Jerry Kramer earned decades ago. Why it has never been filled is anyone’s guess but when you are the only guard selected on the NFL’s 50th anniversary team locking you out seems like more than an oversight. It seems ridiculous. How can […]

    Lewis, Urlacher face Hall battle?

    by Ron Borges Talk of Fame Network When Chicago Bears’ linebacker Brian Urlacher announced his retirement on May 22, 2013 via Twitter, it was a sign of the times. So, too, was the breathless commentary later that day on outlets like ESPN and NFL Network labeling him a “first-ballot Hall of Famer.” Oh, really? The odds of becoming a Hall of Famer are miniscule. The odds of becoming a first ballot Hall of Famer are even less and rightfully so. […]

    Door opened at just the right time for Bills’ Andre Reed

    By Clark Judge Talk of Fame Network   For Andre Reed, the time couldn’t be better to make it to Canton — and here’s to the Hall of Fame for understanding. The best receiver on one of the best teams in the last two decades, the former Buffalo star waited patiently for the call — with the Hall responding last February on Reed’s eighth shot as a finalist. Reed said then that he was grateful, and he should have been. […]

    Poll Question – Offensive Minded

    What was the greatest offense of all time? 1950 Rams - Two Hall of Fame QBs (Bob Waterfield, Norm Van Brocklin) and two Hall of Fame WRs (Tom Fears, Crazylegs Hirsh). The Rams scored 466 points in a 12-game schedule, an average of 38.8 per game. The 2013 Broncos averaged only 37.8 points per game. 1981 Chargers- Air Coryell – the year the Chargers suffered frostbite at the AFC title game in Cincinnati. QB Dan Fouts, WR Charlie Joiner and TE Kellen […]

    It took years, but Guy where he belongs

    By Clark Judge Talk of Fame network   When the Hall of Fame inducts seven new members Aug. 2 it finally … and thankfully … corrects an oversight that stood for years — namely, keeping Ray Guy out of Canton. Guy was more than the game’s best punter. He was a regrettable omission, someone who should have been admitted to the Hall long ago. But he wasn’t, and don’t ask me why. All I know is that he failed seven times […]

    Perfection and Protecting Perfection

    By Rick Gosselin Talk of Fame Network Only Don Shula has experienced perfection as an NFL coach. Shula also has excelled in the role of spoiler. The NFL has been around for 94 years and only one team has managed a perfect season — Shula’s 1972 Miami Dolphins, who ran off 17 consecutive victories on the way to their first Lombardi Trophy. And Shula did it the hard way — with a backup quarterback starting 11 of those games through […]

    The Know Huddle!

    When tight end Tony Gonzalez retired last season, he was labeled “a first-ballot Hall of Famer” more times than Peyton Manning completed a pass. Considering Gonzalez’s remarkable achievements, that’s a logical and safe assumption, which is great except that it’s an assumption. If you truly want to know what Gonzalez’s chances are of making it on a first ballot… if you want to understand the hazards of making it as a first-ballot tight end… you consult the people involved in […]

  • ‘Just don’t be an ugly cryer’

    By Clark Judge Talk of Fame Network   CANTON, Ohio — Michael Strahan has a message for his classmates in this year’s Hall of Fame class: It’s OK to cry. In fact, Strahan said he might tear up when he makes his acceptance speech Saturday, and, as he said, that’s OK because, as he put it, “if you’re going to cry this is your opportunity when nobody can say anything to you.” Except, apparently, somebody can: Michael Strahan. “Just don’t […]

  • Strahan “loved playing the run more” than rushing the QB

    By Clark Judge Talk of Fame Network   CANTON, Ohio — Michael Strahan’s in the Hall of Fame because he was a superior pass rusher who, it just so happens, holds the league record for most sacks in one season. But this just in: He was more than that. He was a complete player who insists he enjoyed playing the run more than he liked rushing the quarterback … and take that, Warren Sapp. Sapp, inducted into the Hall of […]

    By Clark Judge Talk of Fame Network   CANTON, Ohio — Good news for Eddie DeBartolo: The Pro Football Hall of Fame is going to make it easier for you to get elected. That’s because the board of trustees on Friday takes up an amendment which is expected to pass — a move that would put someone like DeBartolo, the former 49ers’ owner and only contributor to make the cut to 15 last February, in a category apart from players […]

    When you start a radio program you want to start strong … and we do. We timed our inaugural program to coincide with the Hall of Fame weekend, and we did it with guests who need no introductions — NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. Goodell’s in Canton for this weekend’s induction ceremonies, but before leaving New York he called our program to visit with Clark, Rick and Ron and answer their questions about the […]

OLB Lawrence Taylor and ILB Harry Carson are already Hall of Famers.    QB Charlie Conerly - NFL MVP and passing champion in 1959. Took the New […]

    Most Valuable, Most Feared

    Talk of Fame Network Our readers have spoken – Lawrence Taylor is the most feared linebacker ever to play the game. But not by much. We asked our readers in the last Talk of Fame Network poll to pick the linebacker who instilled the most fear in offenses. We gave them four options representing four different decades — Dick Butkus from the 1960s, Jack Lambert the 1970s, Taylor the 1980s and Ray Lewis the 2000s. Taylor won by the slimmest […]
