2. Ed Reed

You can’t think of ball hawks in the 2000’s without thinking of the name, Ed Reed. The cerebral Safety seems to know what the Quarterback was gong to do before he did and it was no fluke that three times he would lead the National Football League in Interceptions.

Ed Reed

A top Free Safety for years, Ed Reed is on the Hall of Fame path for the Canton. The Defensive Back would lead the NFL in Interceptions three times and Interception Return Yards twice. Reed, while looking like a grizzled veteran would almost instantly become a star defensive player for Baltimore and in the NFL in general.    
It is always onward and upward for us at Notinhalloffame.com, and as such we wanted to take the time to update our Football Futures section.  This is the portion of the website where you have the opportunity to let us know your opinion as whether retired players who are not yet eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame should be enshrined in Canton.  This process also helps us establish where these players should be ranked once eligible.

We already had the Football Futures from 2016, 2017 and 2018 up, and recently we have updated our 2017 Football Futures and our2018 Football Futures Section.

Regular visitors to the website, you know what we want you to do!

Take a look at this new section and let your voice be heard.  Cast a vote and offer your opinion on this group of gridiron greats.

Shortly, we will be unveiling our Football Futures for 2020.

As always we here at Notinhalloffame.com thank you for your support and pledge to continue to bring you more Hall of Fame related content!



We told you that this would be a task that we would eventually get to.

Regular visitors to Notinhalloffame.com might know that we have told you in past updates that we will be looking at the top fifty players in each major North American Franchise (NHL, NFL, MLB and NBA) and last month we debuted just that with the Charlotte Hornets’ Top fifty players of all-time.

Selected second, we go to the National Football League and two time Super Bowl Champion, the Baltimore Ravens, which like Charlotte and all other future selections was done randomly.  Although we are in the playoffs and Baltimore is not a participant, this is up to the end of the 2014 season as we are waiting for the end of the post season before we include 2015 accomplishments.
