I'll confess, I've never heard of Dick Stanfel. Shame on me. Going to do some digging to educate myself.

Maybe we all should., Boone.

Stanfel was a Pro-Bowl selection for the Lions in 1953 and 1955 and all three years he was with the Redskins 1956-1958. He is also on the "70 Greatest Redskins" list done in 2002 in honor of the Redskins 70th anniversary.

He later was the offensive line coach of the Bears from 1981 to 1992 and helped create the OL of the 1985 Bears SB winning juggernaut.

I'd like to see him make it since he made a powerful contribution to NFL football both as a player-on two teams-and also in the coaching profession.

Hope he goes in as a member of the Redskins. The more, the merrier.
When a former player goes into the Pro Football Hall of Fame he does not go in as a member of a particular team. On his bust stand is a list of teams that he played for.

So as painful as it is the Philadelphia Eagles is on Art Monk’s stand and the Washington Redskins is on Deion Sander’s stand. :frown2:

Jacoby seems to be a no brainer. But then, so did Monk. Unfortunately, Jacoby is probably the only other Hog, joining Grimm, who will ever make it.

While a later Hog, Jim Lachey really was the best LT we've ever had. We fleeced the Raiders with that trade. I'd think he would be a candidate before Jacoby.

No offense to Mr. Jacoby OR Mr. Lachey, but Willie Roaf is probably top 5 or 10 all-time at the position. There's only a handful of guys who were better.

Don't get me wrong, Lachey would get strong consideration in my book. However, Jake did it for us, longer, and at two positions. He faced the likes of LT, in his prime, for longer than Jim.

And, his accomplishments, for being an UDFA, were phenomenal, in comparison to Jim, who as a top 15 1st round draft choice, unfairly or not, was expected to succeed.

Jim had a 2-3 year period where he was the best we ever had. Joe had that early on, plus the remainder of his career only saw a fall off to top 5 best ever.

Long live The Hogs!!!

I remember Swann going in and in his speech he started a push for Stallworth to get in. Grimm should have done and should do the same.
Agreed. I'm willing to bet the team has been lobbying for it, quietly. May be time to start getting loud. ;)

True - however the HOF does designate a member's primary team. In the case of this link http://www.profootballhof.com/hof/teams.aspx they identify the primary team in bold.

oh ya..cris carter wont shut up about himself. but that is going to get him in I bet.
Plus now that he has joined ESPN, they will continue to push him on us all. He will get in eventually, in order for Berman to shoot his wad one last time.

I agree, although this way we do get us some Vince Lombardi. :)
