    With all of this talk about whether TO (and now Moss) should be in the HOF, how in the hell did Marvin Harrison get in?

    Where were the character concerns then Polian?

    wow, totally forgot about this whole incident. Sounds like Harrison had a good fall guy or good attorney. I'm guessing this was swept under the rug, I doubt the media covered it.

    TO had an incredibly negative effect on his team because of his locker room antics. Moss and Harrison not so much.

    It's really about contributing to a winning team as opposed to a general morals issue i.e. murder may be OK, just don't bad-mouth your teammates.

    Polian doesn't mind a little gun play just as long as you have your teammates' back.

    As I recall, all of the many witnesses pointing a finger at Marvin had rap sheets a mile long and none were deemed by the prosecution to be reliable enough to help them get a conviction. The police were very late in rounding up the circumstantial evidence and in doing very basic things like testing MH for firearms residue, so the witnesses were needed.

    That's exactly why T O hasn't gotten in

    If OJ Simpson and Marvin Harrison are in, I think that TO should get in.

    Call me crazy....

    Polian is at the forefront of those making a very tortured argument about how being a "locker room cancer" ought to be held against players like TO or Moss, because they define it as "on-field" behavior, as opposed to players like Ray Lewis or Marvin Harrison or Darren Sharper whose behavior is supposedly not related to their qualifications to join the football hall of fame.

    The logical extent of their argument is that Aaron Hernandez would be equally as eligible for HOF consideration as Gronk if, by some circumstance, AH had produced HOF numbers for some length of time before being apprehended, tried and convicted for his crimes, whereas Moss and TO are still out under this line of thinking.

    ****, one time we saw Brady and Bill O'Brien yell at each other. Cancer? Maybe not HOF material? It was on field!

    They've quickly become as illogical and dumb about this as many baseball Hall voters have with the PED stuff [even moreso now that some guys with PED accusations are in, but Clemens, Bonds, McGwire and Sosa = out].

    Why do we care about the opinion of a guy who needed his team to be facing the mighty Rex Grossman Bears in order to win a ring?

    So does this mean that we now get the "Marvin Harrison killed a guy" option added?

    Marvin Harrison killed a guy.

    Yep, how many Super Bowls have been lost by Polian teams, not to mention the laundry list of one-and-dones?

    Not that I don't think Polian is a buffoon but these are 2 separate things. On field/locker room issues are different than societal issues.

    I don't think players who go on to be criminals should be excluded from the hall. They aren't inducted for being good people they are inducted for their football career.

    I give moss a bigger pass because he was sent to hell in Oakland and was a competitor before and after (mostly. He gave up here in the jet game that got him traded and "took plays off" in
    minn

    I kind of get the TO thing. IF it's true that he hurt his team with his selfish attitude that would keep him out in my book. But it's a stretch to say he did.

    Bill Polian. Just his name brings a smile to my face. I'm just so glad he, Dungy and the other members of the Competition Cabal increased the "emphasis" against contact with receivers all those years ago.

    It was meant to hurt the Patriots, but the delicious irony is that no team has benefited more from the "emphasis" change than the Tom Brady and the Patriots with their small receivers and option routes.

    The best laid plans of mice and men so often go astray.
