gimpy007 Posted October 28, 2005 Share Posted October 28, 2005 Am I crazy for thinking that Dexter Manley also deserves to be in the HOF along with Monk, Grimm, Jacoby, Mann, and Butz? I know we all agree that Monk deserves to be in, but I think the names I listed above also deserve to be in. I just remember as a kid that these were the Redskins. Not only were they the Redskins, but any of these guys could turn the game around with a big play. These were the guys that made the Redskins the Dynasty that the sports writers will never admit they were. I'm 30 and for me to not only remember these guys, but to remember how big of an impact they all had on the game says something for me. I still remember one game where Manley hit Jim McMahon so hard that his helmet flew off and it made the cover of SI. Dexter Manley dominated offensive tackles and pounded QB's & RB's when they dared to run to his side. I just think that Manley will always be overlooked because of his off the field issues and the rest of them will also be overlooked as well for other reasons that I can not think of other then the fact that the voters do not like the Redskins for some reason. I'm trying to start the conspiracy theory, but it just doesn’t add up. These were guys that other players dreaded to line up against on Sunday. These guys would tear you apart and have fun doing it. These guys built a Dynasty together. It's realy sad when you think about how the NFL decides who will go to the HOF. I can't remember who posted it. It was a while back, but the post went into detail on how the NFL picks its Hall of Famers vs. MLB and a few other pro sports. Bottom line is that not only the names I listed above, but there are other players that are not in and will never get in even though they deserve to be in and there are also players that are in the HOF that do not desereve to be in the HOF. When will the NFL ever wake up? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
