      Sharpe will be a 1st ballot guy I think.

      Until the HOF lets Gradishar in, they are a joke to me.

      R Ayers - B Cofield - A Haynesworth - CJ ohnson
      J Anderson - J Beason - DJ Williams
      R Bailey - P Amukamara - R Hill - A Goodman

            What is missing from this resume?

            Gradishar was a three-year starter with the Ohio State University Buckeyes from 1971 to 1973. Former Ohio State head coach Woody Hayes called Gradishar "the best linebacker I ever coached"[1]. He made 134 tackles in his senior year.

            In Gradishar's three years with the Buckeyes, the team had a 25-6-1 record, with two Big Ten Conference championships. Gradishar's final collegiate game was a 42-21 victory over the University of Southern California in the 1974 Rose Bowl, to complete a 10-0-1 season.

            Gradishar was a consensus first-team All-America selection in 1972 and a unanimous first-team All-America selection in 1973. In 1973 Gradishar finished sixth in the voting for the Heisman Trophy.

            Gradishar was inducted into the Ohio State Varsity O Hall of Fame in 1983. In 1987 he was induced into the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame. Gradishar was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1998. He was selected to the Ohio State Football All-Century Team in 2000.

            The Ohio State end-of-season award for most outstanding linebacker is known as the Randy Gradishar Award.

            Gradishar was drafted 14th overall in the 1974 NFL Draft by the Broncos. Gradishar went on to spend 10 seasons with Denver, assisting them to Super Bowl XII after the 1977 season. He made the Pro Bowl seven times, including six consecutive appearances from 1977 to 1983. He was named consensus NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1978 by winning the Associated Press Award award, along with the UPI Defensive Player of the Year award and the NEA Defensive MVP award, receiving the George S. Halas Trophy for his effort.

            Gradishar retired after the 1983 season, finishing his career with over 2,000 tackles and 20 interceptions, which he returned for 335 yards and four touchdowns. He also recovered 13 fumbles, returning them for 72 yards and one touchdown. Since his retirement, he has been nominated for the Pro Football Hall of Fame several times, but has yet to be enshrined. He was among the 15 finalists in 2005, and has made the top 25 list so far in 2006.

                TD while he was healthy was probably the best team running back of all time. He ran, catched, blocked (I never before and never since seen any rb hit the pass rushers on pass routes near as much as TD did), did not fumble, rarely lost yards putting the offense in bad long yardage situations, played hurt and most importantly never made public cries for more money.

                Only 3 or 4 good years tho....as much as I love him I am not sure if his career should be considered for HoF entry.
                Time to build on the win and grow the team from some solid play higher level of play

                  he played longer, put up better numbers, and won more awards than Gale Sayers...

                      Absolutely agree about Gradishar.

                      On a side note, in 1978, Randy had 286 tackles.

                      6 200+ tackle seasons in all.

                        It is a shame that there are no other Bronco's in the hall. Elway even said so in his induction ceremony. But now that HE is in I would be suprised if more did not follow. Just gotta get em rolling in now.

                            The Hall of Fame deal is the biggest joke in sports.....

                            A franchise as successful as the Broncos have been for the last 30 years to only have ONE f'n member is a farce.

                            I live an hour from the Hall, and haven't been there since Elway was inducted and won;t go back until the next Broncos is deservingly included....

                            It make me ill....

                              Proud Bronco fan since 1975. I just wish every football player out there today was more like my man Rod Smith. Knowing we will never see him on the field again is very hard. He gave everything he had and left his guts on the field. I will miss him.
