Canton would first have to get their heads out of their a$$es before they could elect Lebeau to the HOF. Just sayin... :P

I say since this year is Super Bowl #44 which happens to be LeBeau's jersey number we should start an online campaign to get him inducted.

Or something.

I am pretty sure I read somewhere that he is going to have to retire to be up for consideration as a contributor or something...which I think he will get in that way for sure. But his playing days weren't some schlub's career. He was outstanding.

And I heard a radio guy actually trying to state a case for that cheatin bastage R*dney Harris*n to be in the HOF. If he ever gets in I will be very sad.

He had 62 career interceptions for 762 return yards and 3 touchdowns, plus 9 recovered fumbles returned for 53 yards and a touchdown in a 14 year playing career. He holds the NFL record for consecutive game appearances for a cornerback with 171. Those are some pretty darn good credentials for a player. The veteran's committee should take note. You wonder if he gets overlooked because he had Hall of Famer Night Train Lane opposite him during the beginning of his career and had Hall of Famer Lem Barney opposite him during the end of his career.
