Can a team that has won only eight games in its last 54 really have a half-dozen players bound for the Hall of Fame?

In a word, no.

In two words, no… probably.

For starters, the Detroit Lions that closed out their 2010 season on a 4-0 run is vastly different than the team that closed out their 2008 season on a 0-16 run. Some of the current Lions with the best shot at the Hall of Fame were juniors in college when Detroit was making the Run for Irrelevance.

Consequently, all but one of these players has at least a decade’s worth of work left in front of them to deserve any mention of the Hall of Fame in a non-sarcastic sense.

But hey, speculation is part of the game, no matter how far down the road it is. Will these guys all make the Hall? I guarantee they won’t.

But if I were to pick the six guys with the best shot, this would be them.
