          Yeah, I have no interest in the game tomorrow. But, I hope you enjoy it. smile As for the best running back ever? I'm not sure Emmitt Smith is in the conversation. And, yes I am aware of his stats.

          I still think Walter Payton has him beat. smile Even, I know a talented runner when I see one, Walter Payton gets his due.

          Emmitt Smith wasn't the runner Walter Payton. But, I guess it's debateable. lol lol lol

          Btw- stay warm in the snowy PA? lol Snow not due to hit my area until Wednesday. smile

    Sometimes it is weird how the HOF selection committee votes players in the HOF. I am still surprised after all this time that the likes of Charles Haley and "Too Tall" Jones are still not in the HOF.

      wavegirl22posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      at least too tall has a commercial. . . but Emmit did your Boys proud today  . . .did you see him get all choked up when he was on with Rice. . sent chills up my spine.....

        Yes I did. He was great! He was a great player/person on and off the field. He gave credit to those around him in players and family. He was funny at times also. Emmitt is a class act.

    I'm annoyed that Richard Dent didn't get in, he been finalist 6 times out of 7 years and still not in. He is the Bears all time sack leader, He was named Super Bowl XX MVP, was an integral part of a championship defense that is considered one of the best in NFL history and was voted to four Pro Bowls.

    how in the world does he keep getting over-looked, heck middle linebacker Mike Singletary and defensive lineman Dan Hampton are inducted and they played on same team as Dent.

          Was 7 year old when the 85 bears did there thing, my dad watched NFL back then. I just thought Walter Payton diving over the oline/dline into the end zone for a TD was the coolest thing ever. I also loved watching william perry just crushing people to the point, it just wasn't fair. Since then I been a fan of the bears and the game.

          Remember the morning after the superbowl, I got up for school, I rushed down the stairs to get the torn piece of paper with the score written on it by my dad. I knew my dad would leave for me, he had stayed up to watch the superbowl, I wanted to watch but I was only 7 lol

          one of the very few days I went to school happier than a kid on christmas day lol

    Yes, I'll give Emmitt his due. He was great on Dancing with the Stars. I thought he did awesome. It was really cool.

    And, no I'm not going to peek either. I'm more interest in what's happening with the RedSox now. They made so many acquistions of the winter so far.

    So, much there to watch. Plus, I do write hubs every now and again. lol lol

    And, there is always time better spent here than watching a game I have no interest in watching to begin with? Boring or not be bored? Not a hard decision there. lol

    Was Charles Hailey eligible this year?

    1. wavegirl22 profile image45
      wavegirl22posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Haley was one of the 2010 finalists; however, he was not selected.
      Haley was inducted into the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame in 2006.

        surprising...even if he was a Cowgirl! He was awesome...

          wavegirl22posted 7 years ago in reply to this

          Haley has the distinction of being the only player in NFL history to have been on five Super Bowl-winning teams. Playing for the San Francisco 49ers from 1986–1991, he won a ring from Super Bowl XXIII and XXIV following the 1988 and 1989 seasons, respectively. After having a personal conflict with 49ers head coach George Seifert and a physical confrontation with quarterback Steve Young, Haley was traded to the Dallas Cowboys in the 1992 off-season, with whom he won three more Super Bowl rings over the next four seasons{ in 1992 (Super Bowl XXVII), 1993 (XXVIII), and 1995 (XXX).

          pretty impressive .. .

      drej2522posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      all right, I want the Saints...I really do...but my gut says Peyton is going to pull it off. Really, I just want it to be close, no blowouts!

      1. wavegirl22 profile image45
        wavegirl22posted 7 years ago in reply to this

        so how is your gut feeling today?

        you know drej ..  i have often heard it say . . you gotta go with your gut....and obviously your gut was dead on . .

        it was a great game. .

        1. drej2522 profile image86
          drej2522posted 7 years ago in reply to this

          heya wavegirl!!

          yah, it was a great game. If only Peyton didn't throw that interception...don't get me wrong, I'm happy the Saints won, but I would've liked to see it come down to the wire. 2 minutes left, score tied...Brees with the ball. Ehhh, oh well!

          Congrats New Orleans! I think the city really needed it!

    I always though Andre Reed was a better WR than Michael Irvin (who is already in the HOF) but the HOF committee puts SO much emphasis on Superbowl rings it's actually a little bit disappointing...
