First off, no rookies should be on that list.

Secondly, Dwight Freeney, Shawne Merriman, John Lynch, Antonio Gates, Troy Polamalu, Ed Reed, Reggie Bush, Ty Law, Carson Palmer, Vince Young, Calvin Johnson, Matt Leinart, Hines Ward, Chad Johnson, Lofa Tatupu, DeMarcus Ware, Larry Johnson, Steven Jackson,
A.J. Hawk, Adrian Peterson should not be there

They either don't deserve to be in the Hall, or they need many more years of high production to get there.

Where is Marshall Faulk, Cris Carter etc.?
Do they only count active players?

its obvious that the espn football department is going through the summertime blues..

wait a minute WE'RE IN TRAINING CAMP!! EVERYBODY IS IN TRAINING CAMP!

why arent we getting articles about position battles, injuries, new coach adjustments..

this is journalism?

The author of that article should be canned.
Shows up for work and his desk is cleared, no note, nothing.
Disappear from their books as if he never existed.
No rookie should be put on that list.
Ever.

Agreed, no rookies should be on the list.


I found it odd that John Lynch would make the list over Darren Sharper.
Lynch has a rep as a hitter, but has 23 fewer picks (26 vs 49) than Sharper, Sharper has 7 career TDs to none for Lynch, fewer passes defensed than Sharper as well.
He does have a lot more tackles than Sharper, but that is more from being a SS than a FS like Sharper.

Um...where's Matt Birk on this list?
What a joke...they didn't even have him On The Bubble or Odd Man Out, and yet they put up the likes Eli Manning and ?Tony freakin' Romo?

Ugh.
