I do this thread about once a year, one time, I'm going to bump the old ones after 5 or 10 years to see how we did.

Here's the question...
HOF'ers currently playing today (Payton Manning is in, whether we count him as playing or not)

My list is just going down as I look at teams... I know I'm missing players (probably lineman the most)

I seperate them out by a couple different categories

HOF Right Now- never have to play another play.
Manning, P.
Brady
Champ
Tony Gonzalez
Tomlinson
Ray Lewis


Borderline
Urlacher
Ed Reed


A few more great years away
Rodgers
Brees
Adrian Peterson (more work then others on this list)
Brady Quinn (jk, let's NOT make this another Bronco QB thread!)

A lot of WR's putting up big numbers, but numbers that may look like 90's baseball HR's totals.... big, but not impressive given the era.


Hmmm.... category
Janikowski???


Help me out here... seems like my list is always longer... but then again, Favre and TO and Moss are no longer on the list (using only current players)

Hey dummy, how about Troy Polamalu?



Yeah... I'd say he's in. (wavering on whether Ed Reed is already in, or if he's borderline)

Ed Reed or Rodgers careers end today, they're HOFers

Yeah, I'll give you Reed.
I would not say Rodgers. He is the best QB right now... but if he needs to build his career over a couple more years before I'd say he's a shoo-in.

He's off to a HOF start, but we'll have to disagree whether he is there or not already.

I think if he had a career-ending injury tomorrow, he'd eventually make it into the HoF.

If he had a career ending injury I would probably put him in the same boat as TD off to a great start and injury cut it short. And it will end up taking alot longer than it should.

Devin Hester is a HOF right now.

Devin Hester is a HOF right now.

Agreed to a degree.

Him not getting many return Tders the last 2 years is kind of hurting his legacy IMO

Jeff Saturday - Borderline

Terell Suggs - A few years away

I am assuming we are loking at current, active players.

Steve Hutchinson? Alan Faneca? I know O-line isn't easy but they are/were great

Adam Vinatieri ? Pretty clutc. If a kicker can do it he has been a key part of a few big stories.

Honestly, I could see Joey Porter getting in (He's still playing right?)
Mostly because he was a Steeler, who also won a Super bowl.

Jason Taylor is a guy I could see getting in as well.

London Fletcher should make it, but think he gets looked over like Gradishar because of who played during his time (Urlacher, R Lewis).

Charles Woodson and Darren Sharper will make it as well.

Hines Ward will get in

I'd say no on Porter, no on Fletcher and Sharper.

Taylor... I'd give him a chance.
Ward is a close call.
I think Woodson is your best call

Devin Hester is a HOF right now.

Didn't even think of Hester... that's an interesting one.
He's the greatest return man in history... yet... what return men are in the HOF???

If one is to go in, he'd be it.

My thoughts on Porter and Ward were due to them being Steelers.

Sharper is currently the active leader in INTs, I think he may be top 10 all time without checking stats.

I don't think Fletcher will get in, but I think his play is good enough to warrant it.

Ed Reed is a hall of famer.
Antonio gates has a chance.
I think Sharper and Woodson will be one.

A few more great years away.......
I would say Demarcus Ware
Adrian Peterson
Revis (if he keeps up this "revis island" through out his career he will get in)
Rodgers

There is no way they would put any QB in the HOF after only 3 and a half seasons as a starter.

Rodgers is way ahead of the curve after only 3 seasons as a starter, but he needs at least another 3 or 4 seasons at a high level to be a sure-thing HOFer.

As other people pointed out, TD put up great numbers in his first 4 seasons and he won every award he could (MVP, Super Bowl MVP, rushing title, 2,000 yards rushing in a season) and he was a big part of 2 Super Bowl wins, yet he may never get in (hopefully he will).
