The Case For Ricky Watters to Be In The NFL Hall Of Fame

Thomas HarrisContributor IJanuary 6, 2010

Ricky Watters played in the NFL from 1992 to 2001, he played in 144 games over his 10 year career. Let's compare Ricky's stats with two players who are in the Hall of Fame and most people would say are definite hall of famers. 

 

 

 

 

PLAYER YEARS Rush Yards TDS Rec Yards TDS TOTAL YARDS TDS

Ricky       10     10643        78    4248      13         14891      91

Player A   11     11236        61    2142     14          13378      75

Player B   13     12074        65    4458      23         16532      88 

I think that shows that Ricky Watters stats are good enough to get in the Hall of Fame. He is the only player in NFL history to run for 1,000 yards for 3 different teams. You might be thinking well he is probably the only one with that chance when in fact if you look at the Top 50 rushing leaders of all time he was one of 15 to play for 3 or more teams. I think if you put Player A (O.J. Simpson) and put Player B (Thurman Thomas) in the Hall of Fame you should put Ricky Watters in who had a great NFL career.
