As a Redskins fan I am of course rooting for Clark, Jack Kent Cooke, Grimm, Jacoby, Manley, Mann,Mitchell, Theismann, and Williams to make it to the Hall.  I think Jacoby and Grimm have the best chance to make it in this year. I think Gary Clark will make it in eventually, but the WR position is stacked this year including Reed, Fryar, and Ellard who played for the Skins but are more identified with other teams.

I think Charles Mann and Dexter Manley are on the bubble. Mann has the Pro Bowls but not the stats. Manley has both, but  his legacy tarnished when he was banned from the league for cocaine usage.

I am doubtful that Theismann or Williams will ever get in. They both were great QBs who knew how to win, but neither had stats that compare favorably to other QBs of their era. It could reasonably be argued that Williams really has only one game on his resume. It was of course possibly the best game a quarterback in the NFL ever played, but it was still just one game.

Brian Mitchell is a tough one. He is certainly accomplished enough to deserve a place in the Hall, but the voters have never been very accommodating of Special Team players.

Jack Kent Cooke is another one that I am unsure of. I think most Skins fan would agree that he did a lot for the sport, but his tenure as owner had its controversies.  Not everyone was happy with the move to Landover and even more were unhappy with his decision to put the team up for sale after his death rather than pass it down to his heirs. I am not even sure how he his legacy is regarded in other areas of the country.

What Redskins player or administrator do you think most deserves the Hall of Fame?
