    I think you're in big trouble if we ever sign a WR named Macallan.

    That's right man. I'm talking a supernatural connection with Johnny Walker.

    Although the 18-year old Macallan would be appropriately aged for enrollment.

    :e-ok:

    I was wondering if in the recent retirements of Derrick Johnson and Jamaal Charles will either one make it to the NFL hall of fame. I'm thinking that both will but it may be a little more difficult for Charles. But what do I know.

    I heard we had another camp shut down in Louisiana. Is this the doings of the LSU coach? If so, how does he accomplish this?

    I'm thinking neither. Charles doesn't have the body of complete work outside of 4 seasons in KC. Only 2 playoff games, too.

    Johnson is closer, but really only flourished in KC once they switched to a 3-4 and pushed him to more of a rover/ILB guy. I think if he had played in a system that utilized his talents longer, he would be sure-fire. For now, he'll probably languish on the HoF nominees list (once he's eligible) for a few seasons and then it'll be up to the voters.

    Charles averaged 5.4 yards per carry for his career. Everyone else (min career 750 attempts) at RB who played for a decade or more with 4.8 ypc is in the Hall.

    You realize by posting this you're going to get IDE over here in a hot minute to scold you and point out "we" have had ex-punters with less than stellar financial histories too.

    Yeah I was about to say something about the similarity of the situations...

    Many others have pointed this out in the past. I pride myself on not being redundant.

    That's quite a pare-down. Charles truly only played 7 full seasons with a bunch of injured ones interspersed throughout. His All-Pro seasons were more because he was such a threat in the pass game, too. But kind of a nonfactor for most of the rest of his good running seasons.

    Using the "similar player" ratings from Pro Football Reference, none of the other RBs who had similar careers to Charles made the HoF. So by limiting it to guys who were in the league for really long times with a bunch of carries, you're not getting a complete pic. The other 6 guys you're comparing him to either played in the 50s, were Gale Sayers (5 straight All-Pro seasons), or were Barry Sanders (6 All-Pro seasons and never missed a Pro Bowl).

    It is an open forum. So when I'm falsely accused why don't I have the right to respond?

    When IDE posts I close my eyes and imagine “saw varsities horns off” playing in the background. Just a little visual for ya.
