    Unless the team wins it all this year (then you could add Moss and maybe Seau if he returns) it appears that only Brady will be a Canton inductee as a player on those teams and Belichick as well.

    Patriot champs won't catch '90s Bills in Canton - NFL Nation - ESPN

    Buffalo had a great mixed core of players but still couldn't win the big one while the Patriots had a grab bag of different players but won 3 so far....Shows you that the whole is greater than the sum of the individual parts.

    P.S. Take note of the sort of disrespect card Kelly says about the Pats like we were lucky and they weren't...cry me a freaking river Jim

    I would say Ty is a lock and Seymour is close to it if not there already. Funny how Adam was a lock when he was making his kicks for us and grrr the Colts he was a lock but know he likely wont because Stenoroud is the only one.

    While I don't think Light quite deserves in I think he deserves to be discussed. IMO you don't protect the best QB of all times blind side for 8 years and counting without at least earning discussions.

    Two names to watch moving forward would be Mankins and Wilfork.

    Willie probably deserves discussion too.

    Actually, I think Branch Rickey lost more World Series than he won, but I'll confess to not having counted.

    If the Bills had been in the NFC, I doubt they've have made 4 straight Super Bowls.

    You exaggerate greatly. How many outstanding seasons did Law have? 4 or 5? How many did he ever have in a row? 1?

    And frankly, he doesn't get as much credit for clutch post-season play as he deserves.

    McGinest isn't CLOSE to deserving HOF membership based on his regular season play, and his excellent post-season play isn't enough to tip it for him.

    And few people ever said Adam was a lock. Still, he has a good chance because he was at the center of a lot of the NFL's iconic moments of his era.

    I probably do exagerate greatly...But rings mean alot to the HOF voters and post season play shouldn't and usually isnt ignored by the voters. being part of a dynasty should put some of our boderline guys over the top.

    If they win another Super Bowl this year or better yet finish what they started in 2007 Bruschi would have a pretty good case for the Hall. Playing in six Super Bowls and being part of the only 16-0 regular season in NFL history and all his big plays over the years in playoff games would be a good case for him to get in.

    Corey Dillon just might get some consideration as well.

    Nope. He wouldn't be an integral part of the D. I expect Guyton to take over before the bye.

    Actually, Guyton technically "took over" last year. It's looking like he's going to be the starter this year while Bruschi comes in to give him a breather.

    He was a dominant running back, although, on a lousy Bengal team. That might keep him out. His first year here was exceptional. He carried the Pats against the Colts in the playoffs......

    IMHO, he deserves serious consideration for the HOF.

    Moss is a lock already, so if he wins a couple with us.....;)

    Brady, Vinatieri, and Belichick go in as Pats.

    Moss goes in as a Pat/Viking.

    Seau goes in as a Charger.

    Seymour has a good chance; Harrison is borderline.

    Bruschi, Law, Dillon, McGinest, and Taylor are doubtful. At some point voters will end up saying "okay, that's enough players from those Patriot teams"; remember the backlash to all the Steelers that got in to the HoF from the 70's?

    Depending on what happens in future years Kraft may have a chance too.

    NO WAY David Patten makes the Hall.

    In other news : I think Adam V. gets in. The timing will be right, and I think the people responsible are just waiting for the right kicker to maybe open doors for a few others.

    I think Seymour gets in. Sure, in this forum, debates rage. But for those who don't follow every game, they'll see the All-Star appearances, the SBs...

    BB is, in my opinion, the only non-Brady no-brainer. He is everything a HoFer should be. Creative, game-changing, ahead of his time, team before publicity... He can probably name 99% (if not all) of those already enshrined.

    It'll be interesting to see how it plays out... let's enjoy the ride while it lasts.

    Edit : obv. Moss is in... but he's not part of a NE SB (yet...).

    That sounds about right, but Kraft is a lock and Law and Dillon are borderline... I think Willie needs to buy his ticket. Tedy was hurt by the stroke because he was just starting to get his props. And the injuries in 2005 hurt Rodney and Ty - stronger finishes to their careers and it would be a lot harder to deny those two. I think they may make it eventually.

    Beli and TFB are locks. Sey.... mmm, possible. Law..... doudtful.

    Dillon probably will get some real consideration, even playing for the lowly Bungels all those years. Lets not forget, he did have more then a few standout moments in Cinci. Set the Rookie Single game rushing record in 97, and then later the Single game rushing record. He also ran for over 1000 in 7/10 seasons. 4 Pro Bowls. He also got his ring.

    Stats wise, his 10 yr states are comparable to people like Riggins, Little and Ollie Matson...... and they all got in.

    He might not, but he's surely get some consideration. The thing likely to hold him back most is not his career, but the fact that the media hated, him.

    First Ballet:
    Brady
    Belichick

    Players that will make it:
    Seymour
    McGinest (All time playoff sack leader)
    Viniateri
    Law
    Rodney Harrison

    On the bubble:
    Light


    I did not include players that will be inducted as a player from another team, like Seau will always be remembered as a Charger, Dillon will always be a Bengal (but will not make the HoF).

    What is the count on 90s Bills in teh HoF?
