The Pro Football Hall Of Fame...Minus the Seattle Seahawks' Greats

Tom JacksonCorrespondent IJuly 14, 2008

The Pro Football Hall Of Fame contains some of football's greatest players. So why is it that some of football's greatest players that just so happen to have played for the Seattle Seahawks are not in it. Let's take a look at some that should be enshrined in Canton.

In the spirit of fairness, Steve Largent IS already in the Hall of Fame. Steve was too good of a player to not be voted in. At the time of his retirement, he was the best receiver the league had ever seen.

Now, on to the snubs. 


1. Dave Brown

Dave Brown has all the makings of a Hall of Fame player: a Super Bowl ring, which he earned his first year in the league, and 62 interceptions, which is a tie for seventh all time.


2. Jacob Green

This defensive end wreaked havoc. Although his career sack total is already an impressive 97.5, he unofficially has an even more impressive 116 sacks. This was due to the fact that sacks weren't recorded until his third season. At the time of his retirement, he ranked No. 3 all-time in sacks.

The other two players who were in front of him were Reggie White and Lawrence Taylor, two Hall of Famers.


3. Kenny Easley

Although he only played seven seasons in the NFL, Easley is considered to be one of the best safeties in history. Drafted the same year as Ronnie Lotte and Lawrence Taylor, tje trio literally changed the way defense was played.

Some say he was even better than Lott.

If Gale Sayers can get into the hall after seven seasons, then Kenny Easley should already be there.


4. Cortez Kennedy

Considered to be one the best defensive tackles of all-time, "Tez" was the Defensive Player of the Year on a team that went 2-14. This is one of professional sport's biggest mysteries, as he should have been a shoe-in these last couple of years. Voted to seven Pro Bowls, Kennedy was a force on the field.


5. Dave Krieg

This pick might be stretching it, but Krieg was one of the most prolific passers of his era. You can't see an all-time, top-15 quarterback-record list without Krieg's name on it. Krieg passed for over 38,000 passing yards in his career. He also threw 261 touchdowns, to only 199 interceptions. His numbers sometimes can be compared to Dan Fouts, who is a Hall of Fame quarterback.
