    Edge will either be in, or he'll be the best back who isn't in. It's pretty much that simple. Given the RB's he's already passed who are in, and that he's likely to hold the position he has on the stat lists for a while, I don't see how you could keep him out.

    Isn't he top 5 in yards from scrimmage per game?

    HOF'ers who played for the Colts through the 2000's is quite impressive. Peyton, Marvin, Reggie, Edge, and probably Saturday.

    What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?

    Don't forget Mathis and Freeney and Vinatieri. They are right there in consideration, in my opinion. Kickers don't get in, but it's hard to deny Adam.

    I'm still bent that Harrison wasn't a first ballot HOF'er last year. 3rd all time in receptions (behind Rice and Tony Gonzalez), 7th all time in receiving yards, 5th all time in receiving touchdowns. Super Bowl champion and part of the greatest QB-WR duo in NFL history. If that's not a first ballot receiving career, then what the hell is?

    I remember talking about it with buddies back in the day. Seemed like, for a time, Bob Sanders was on his way as well.

    Fun fact: If Vinny plays 2015 with the Colts, then he will have been in Indy (10 years) as long as he was in NE.

    He's gotta get in. Has to be the most famous kicker ever, doesn't he? 4 Super Bowl rings with some ridiculous kicks along the way.

    He would certainly be in the HOF of biggest difference makers when healthy.

    Cutis Martin was never the top RB in the league. He was very good for a long time, but nobody will ever put Martin on their list of greatest RB's. James was the best RB in the league for his first 2.5 years, which we may never see again.
    In fairness to Martin, Barry Sanders and Emmit Smith were still playing when he came into the league. Edge wouldn't have been the best RB in the league either if he would have come into the league in 1995. I'm not denying Edge's greatness - he's an obvious HOF'er in my book, but you don't become the number 4 all time career rushing yards leader unless you were really freaking good. Curtis Martin was a great running back.

    Curtis Martin was the "Emmitt Smith who played for average teams". He was a very good RB, he was durable and reliable.

    Yeah, put him on say the 90's Packers and he's a legend.

    Vinny is getting in, no doubt in my mind he will "kick" that door down.

    You mean this as far as Colts RB go?
