Eric Dickerson

Strahan Was ROBBED!

H.O.F. Voters Are a Joke

Ex-NFL superstar Eric Dickerson is calling out the Hall of Fame voters as a bunch of non-football-playing posers ... after they passed over Michael Strahan for the honor this year.

Dickerson was in New Orleans when he ripped the sportswriters who vote on the H.O.F. ... telling us, "I think they're biased in a lot of ways. They don't like certain guys ... Them sportswriters don't even know how to put uniforms on, most of 'em."

E.D., who was voted into the Hall in 1999, said he wasn't sure why voters snubbed Strahan, and thinks the Giants great will get in eventually -- but he's still not convinced writers are fit to judge legends of the game.

"Has a sportswriter ever lined up against Michael Strahan? Has a sportswriter ever lined up across from me? No, I wish one would, 'cause I could run over their asses."

Hmm ... sportswriters vs. players? Beats the Pro Bowl.

stupid. Did Roger Ebert ever make any movies or act before? Doesn't mean his opinion wasn't good on movies.

The problem with the NFL HOF voting is that only 5 guys get in at a time (along with an older guy). You can't put every deserving player in because of the restrictions.

Maybe if Strahan actually EARNED the record for most sacks in a season, he would have got in his first year eligible. Instead he gets to wait a year before it happens. He can thank Favre for the snub this year!!!

Truth    

DUDE HAS A POINT. IT'S NOT JUST NFL HALL OF FAME... ALL HALL OF FAMES ARE FULL OF DISCRETION. THE WORSE ONE BEING THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME. YALL KNOW JANN WENNER IS THE BIGGEST DOUCHE BAG OF THEM ALL. LOOK AT THE ARTISTS WHO REFUSE THE RRHOF BECAUSE IT'S A DIRT BAG ELITIST BUNCH OF GOOD OLE BOYS WHO JUDGE WHAT'S ROCK AND WHAT'S NOT AND 99.8% OF THE TIME IT'S BASED WHO THEY LIKE NOT WHO DESERVES IT. POINT BLANK! #TRUTH!!

Throwback kid    

How does Eric Dickerson feel about football players who become TV analysts. I realize writers never played football, but the players have have no qualifications to speak on TV. Many of them say They is and we was, they have a very poor command of the english language and have no idea how to use proper grammar? Did anyone see Eric Dickerson when he tried to be a reporter for Monday Night Football? He was awful and was fired from the job, he had no business trying to be a reporter. The players love to point out that the writers never played but don't like to be called out about how horrible most players are when they try to do their jobs on TV. When Shannon Sharpe speaks on TV you need subtitles to understand what he says, the same goes for Michael Irvin
