Pro Football Hall of Fame : The Best Players Not Yet Inducted at Each Position

Several years ago, I began a mission to get Washington Redskins legend Chris Hanburger inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Thanks to the letters and quotes from his NFL brethren, "The Hangman" was finally inducted this season.

Shortly after I began my cause, I created a series called "Crazy Canton Cuts". It was to not only pay respect to the greatest football players not yet inducted, but to remind the reader of the true greatness these players posses.

I have profiled a lot of great players over the years. Enough to put together a team that could take the field and certainly defeat any type of football team that ever existed or could ever be created.

Here are the best players, position by position, in my Crazy Canton Cuts series. You will clearly see each man belongs in Canton, and that most are better players than the more modern players being inducted today.

The problem is, most of the players you will read about are stuck in the seniors pool these days. The Hall of Fame Seniors Committee is allowed to nominate just two players yearly, creating a huge logjam amongst candidates.

It is clear the Hall of Fame should at least double nominations in the seniors pool. This becomes even clearer when you see men not in the seniors pool get inducted with a lot less accolades or accomplishments than many players stranded in the seniors pool. Then there are the factors of how the game has changed over the years, and how earning a Pro Bowl nod has drastically changed.
