What Defines A Hall of Famer?

I've talked to a lot of angry people about the way the NFL HoF is run and the selection process is, and I have this to offer. Cris Carter vs Michael Irvin. A Hall of Fame for a sport doesn't necessarily HAVE to include anyone based on stats. Irvin was blessed to preform with elite coaching...

'13 or '14? Best Chance For a NC

I've been wondering this for the last few days. Obviously this upcoming season we will have the nastiest, most explosive offense in the country but we loose so much on defense (esp. D-line and LB). Much of the defense's talent is unproven. Will X-Brax 360 and slew of returning offensive tale...
