    Is Ty Law A Hall of Famer?

    53 interceptions.  3 time Superbowl champ. 

    Champ Bailey and Charles Woodson may have been better, and Ronde Barber might have been just as good.  But the 3 rings should put Law into the Hall.

    Re: Is Ty Law A Hall of Famer?

    I remember watching "Sports Tonight" on CSN with Troy Brown.  He mentioned that Ty Law didnt give up a TD pass for like 5 years.  Ty was a complete CB, he wasnt just a "cover corner."  He wasnt afraid to make a tackle on a RB.
    BTW, Ronde Barber WAS NOT in the same class as Ty Law!  Ronde was a cover 2 corner while Ty played mostly man.
    So, the simple answer is "YES"

    No doubt about it, for the better part of a decade he was a top 3 corner in the league, and he played enormous on the biggest stages ('03 AFCCG, 01 SB pick 6).  Physical against the run, could play off or bump, had the top end speed to run with just about anyone.....My favorite player of all time, a complete defensive back, which has become a true rarity.  I'll never be happy about how things ended for him in N.E., but time soothes those wounds.

    His 2003 campaign is the best from a cornerback in the decade from 2000-2010.  He dominated.  Champ and Revis have had some pretty impressive seasons, but that one takes the cake.  Peyton Manning sad/confused face in the playoffs was like 2nd christmas.

    I agree, though CB is one of those positions that can be streaky, and take time to develop.  Guys like Tramon Williams, or to a lesser extent Asante, took a little bit of time to hone their game in the pros before breaking out.  Rex's scheme puts alot of pressure on the opponents qb and offensive line, so Revis does benefit from that, but he is a very good player.  Now The other bozos in their secondary, not so much.

    the only blemish on Law's resume is his comment about needing to feed his family. first ballot certainty.

    Bad feeling guys like Ty and Rodney get snubbed. They shouldn't. Any player who has done things no other player has done, in big game settings should be closely considered.

    Example Willie Mac all time leader in post season sacks, plus most sacks in one playoff game. That is a stat that should stay for a while

    Rodney only player in NFL history with 30 sacks 30 interceptions,that is a major accomplishment, plus defensive leader of 2 great SB defense's.

    Hall of fame should not be based on stat accumulation, but what kind of impact that player had for his team. The 3 above players had major impact on more then 1 championship. They should all go in, imo.

    Re: Is Ty Law A Hall of Famer?

    Superbowls should be a major factor for making the Hall of Fame, because you played your best football when it mattered most.  Also being on teams that constantly made the playoffs should count more than a guy who just made Pro-Bowls on a crap team. 

    Hall of Fame Who Would Probably Make It If They Quit Playing Tomorrow

    1.  Tom Brady
    2.  Peyton Manning
    3.  Drew Brees (solid chance if career cut short by injury) 
    4.  Ed Reed
    5.  Ray Lewis
    6.  LT  
    7.  Brian Dawkins
    8.  Tony Gonzolez
    9. Champ Bailey
    10. Jason Taylor
    11. Antonio Gates
    12. Steve Hutchinson
    13.  Dwight Freeney (A few more 10+ sack seasons he'll be a first ballot.) 
    14.  Julius Peppers (Realistically needs a couple more 10+ sack seasons to lock down the hall.) 
    15.  Richard Seymour
    16.  Troy Palamalou 
    17.  Kevin Williams
    18.  Adam Vinateri
    19.  Darren Sharper
    20.  Jarren Allen (Another member just short of the 100 sack club.)
    21.  Charles Woodson
    22.  Brian Ulracher
    23.  John Abraham
    24.  James Harrison

    I'd say Demarcus Ware is well on his way, he's been a beast since day one..

    If this guy doesn't get in, then no corner that has played for the last 15 years should get in.

    [QUOTE]Revis's 2009 was great, no doubt, but I think Rex's system implementations in NY has helped him. He wasn't dominant in 2007 or 2008.  Good start to his career then, but Law had superior 1st two seasons.

    Ive been saying the same thing for a while now. People like to say he's a shutdown corner. Nobody that plays as much zone as him deserves that title. Plus another thing people "conveniently" forget is how much help he gets over the top. In 09' he lined up across from Moss 77 times. He only played true man coverage 7 times without any S help. The guy is a great player , no doubt , but is little overrated if you ask me.

    Re: Is Ty Law A Hall of Famer?

    The only thing that would hurt Bailey would be he was somewhat injury-prone. Other than that when healthy definatly a HOFer. Ronde Barber IMHO was more of a hybred corner/safety. Very good player and versitile. I would say borderline HOFer. Just my opinion. BTW Ty Law was the real deal-anytime you can leave a corner on his own to cover that 1/4 of the field obviously says something.In Response to Re: Is Ty Law A Hall of Famer?:
    [QUOTE]Bailey is in the discussion and I also think Ronde Barber is a HOFer. Totally underrated.

    especially because voters will want more than just Brady and Belichick going into the Hall of Fame for his contributions to the Patriots' dominance of the past decade.  Seymour's numbers don't back his case, even if he is one of the best defensive linemen.  Same goes for Wilfork.  McGinnest has too many other great linebackers ahead of him.  Ty Law makes sense as the other Patriot to get into the Hall.  Rodney Harrison has an outside shot based on numbers, and hopefully time has dampered his bad reputation

    Re: Is Ty Law A Hall of Famer?

    Richard Seymour will get in because he was a key force on all three Superbowl teams as well as as the 18-1 defense of 2007.  Plus he's still playing like a beast in Oakland and could see him being a dominant defender well into his late 30's.  

    Seymour was one of the first modern defensive linemen, a 300 pounder who wasn't fat, but incredibly strong and athletic.  Yes he doesn't have great stats but any writer that votes for the Hall of Fame will know how much of a matchup problem Seymour was. 

    Harrison I don't think will make the Hall of Fame and probably neither will Bruschi, although they will be in the discussion for many years.  What hurt Harrison a bit was being on those horrible San Diego teams in the late 90's, had they had a halfway decent offense, Seau and Harrison on that incredible defense would have been like the Ravens.
