Default Future Steelers Hall of Famers

I am looking for Steelers who did not play on the 70s dynasty team that will be in the HOF like:

Rod Woodson
Jerome Bettis
Dermonti Dawson

I have no doubt the they will make it.
Dawson is eligible now and just missed getting this year.
Jerome will not be eligible for 4 more years.
Rod has 2 or 3 years to wait I think.

Will Hines Ward, Greg Lloyd or Kevin Greene make it?

Am I forgetting anyone?

hines is already the leader of receptions but need around 200 yards to become the yards leader. he isnt a lock in my eyes until he gets a few more 10+ touchdown and 1000+yard seasons under his belt. he says he will retire once he hits 10,000 yards and now he is stading around 7500-8000 i think.

actually he needs 721 yards....but your point is still valid

Bettis and Woodson are locks...and Dawson is deserving and will probably be in.

Other than that ...Faneca is also a possibility...and we have some on the bubble who might get in with the proper "PR"...such as Lake.

Ward is setting at 8005 Yards Receiving, 718 yards short of Stallworth.
Ward can break into the top 10 with receptions if he gets 203 more.
Ward if he hangs around long enough and gets 4780 Receiving Yards he could break into the Top 10 there to.

Pretty sure Ward gets the 719 Yards this season to break Stallworth Steelers Record, which also breaks him into the top 50 and puts him at 48 and pushes Stallworth down to 49.

Ward barring any injuries and if he hangs around long enough will be pushing himself up the leader board in several areas of the top 50.

I dont think Ward is a lock yet but I think he will be in 4 or 5 more seasons. Faneca will probably make the Hall of Fame and mabey Peezy(I know he's not a Steeler anymore) if he elivates his play from last season for the next five or so.

lloyd and greene at this pace won't get in because of they're getting voted down every year.

i agree about lloyd but i think greene will get the nod. he's the 3rd on the list of all time career sacks with 160 and 1st on the list of all time career sacks for a linebacker. I can't see him getting left out.

i see 2 people who seem positive kevin greene will not make it? you all know who kevin green is right? he may not go in as a steeler but he was only 1 of the 2 most dominant linebackers of his era.

Quote:
-In 1988 Greene led Rams with 16-1/2 sacks which was 2nd in the NFL behind Reggie White

-All-Pro team in 1989 as well as The Sporting News (TSN) All-Pro Team and the Pro Bowl in 1989 with his second consecutuve season of 16-1/2 sacks (4th in the NFL)

-His 13 sacks (tied for 6th in the NFL) in 1990 gave him 46 sacks for that three-year period, the most of any player.

-In 1993 he went to the Pittsburgh Steelers, where had had another solid season with 12-1/2 sacks which tied him for 7th in the league leadership of that stat

-Greene was consensus All-Pro in 1994 by AP, PFWA, NEA, TSN while leading the NFL in sacks and where he made another appearance in the Pro Bowl.

-In 1995 he went to his third Pro Bowl and also played in Super Bowl XXX,

-In 1996 he was named the NFC Linebacker of the Year and received the NEA Defensive Player of the Year Award. In addition the NFL Alumni voted Greene the NFL Linebacker of the Year Award. He was also voted the NFC Player of the Year by the Washington D.C. Touchdown Club. Additionally, he set an NFL record with 5 consecutive multi-sack games and finished leading the NFL in sacks for the second time in three years with 14-1/2

-In 1998 he was repeated his honor of being named NFC Linebacker of the year by the NFLPA. Greene was named to the Pro Bowl after the 1998 season bringing his Pro Bowl total to five. Greene was tied for third in the NFL for sacks, after Michael Sinclair (16.5 sacks), Reggie White (16 sacks), and tied with Michael Strahan who each totaled 15 sacks.

-He retired after the 1999 season where he had 12 sacks (7th in the NFL) as a 4-3 outside linebacker and as a five-time Pro Bowler

-NFL's third all-time sack leader with 160, behind only Bruce Smith and Reggie White.

-He also leads all NFL linebackers in career sacks ahead of players like Lawrence Taylor, Derrick Thomas, Rickey Jackson, and Andre Tippett.

- Greene is one of only 4 players to lead the NFL in sacks in multiple seasons ('94 with the Steelers and '96 with the Panthers)

- Greene is also tied for second in career safeties with three.

- He also ranked third all time in fumble recoveries with 26, which he returned for 136 yards and 2 touchdowns.

- He is one of three players to record 10 sacks a year for 10+ years. He averaged over 10 sacks a year for 15 seasons.

- Eight times he was among the NFL's Top 10 sackers, leading the NFL twice

-Eleven times in his 15 years he led his club in sacks

-Played in six conference championships in his 15 seasons.
geez guys, hes as close to a sure fire 1st ballot hall of famer you can get. no reason he should be snubbed. i guess its because he wasnt a crack addict
