Post Zach, Madison, and Surtain now elible for Hall of Fame 2014
As much as I love Zach, I don't think he makes the Hall ... and he has the best chance of those 3.

Quote:
Linebacker Zach Thomas and cornerbacks Sam Madison and Patrick Surtain are among the 16 first-year eligible modern-era candidates nominated for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2014.

I think he definitely has a chance.

"Maybe" Zach Thomas has an outside shot, but probably doubtful.

I personally think it is Jason Taylor that will most likely get in the HOF.

absolutely! I hate that Titles tilt the way people view guys. He wasn't even close to as good a player Zach was.

Yep, I agree, but even if their individual stats are fairly close throughout their career, the Superbowl wins and being an instrumental part of that will factor into the HOF decision. Right or wrong, that is part of it.

Zach should get first ballot. The others may not make it at all unfortunately.

Well.....if Randy Gradishar can't make HOF, then I don't like Zach's chances either. It is a crock 'o crap though......Zach Thomas was a tackling machine!

As much as I love Zach Thomas, he belongs in the Hall of "Great," not the Hall of Fame. When I think of the pantheon of great linebackers in NFL history, Zach isn't among them.

Dolphins Hall of Famer? First ballot. NFL Hall of Famer? I don't think so. But that's my opinion.

Zach had very comparable stats to Ray Lewis and better than a lot of MLB's already there.

Zach is easily a all time top 25 middle linebacker.

I think Zach gets in, but that defense got worn down every year and cost us games.

Unlike baseball, the NFL HOF is watered down with some really good players, but not great. NFL requires X amount of players each yr get in, where baseball does not.

So with that. Zach has a small chance.

At nauseume many of you know my son is named after Zach Thomas. With his newfound interest in everything football and Miami Dolphins he practically begged me that "when" and not "if" Zach Thomas gets into the Hall of Fame I have to take him to the induction. Lol

That Defense got worn down by pathetic offense. If our defense last year had to go on the field for that many 3 and outs, Miami would be picking first in the draft this year.

My son is also named after ZT. I plan to do everything in my power to go when Zach is inducted into the HOF. Although I hope it's when my son is old enough to remember the experience, which won't be for at least 2-3 years.
