ESPN bills itself as the World Wide Leader in Sports. This was once true. They had great features, good exclusive content, hip and cutting edge shows. Great ideas. But ... It's become apparent to me that ESPN and ESPN.com are grasping at straws to try to stay relevant, be hip and smart and intelligent, and are failing miserably. From their desire to do a different type of ranking almost weekly of NFL teams in various areas, to the pathetic "Who's Now", it seems they just keep throwing crap against the wall and seeing what sticks. And now, ESPN.com has given us another glimpse of their genius. [link=http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=halloffame/nfl1-10]Projection of the fifty current players that will make the NFL Hall of Fame[/link] Such a list, in and of itself, is not a bad idea. It's alright to start debating, however prematurely, if someone is Hall of Fame material. However, this list is just a complete and total farce. Nothing else to say about it. The biggest question, in my opinion, is the biggest gaff. Is it: --Randy Moss as a Hall of Fame lock? --Reggie Bush, after one season of not being a featured back, as a Hall of Fame lock? --Vince Young, after less than one season as a starter, as a Hall of Fame lock? --Calvin Johnson, without ever signing an NFL contract, as a Hall of Fame lock? --Matt Leinhart, without a full season of starting or a winning record, as a Hall of Fame lock? --Adrian Peterson, without a single game played, as a Hall of Fame lock? --Steve McNair on the Hall of Fame "bubble", while Vince Young is already a lock? --Brady Quinn and JaMarcus Russell already declared out of the Hall of Fame before signing a contract? This, to me, is just the latest in a long line of ESPN gaffes, errors, and lapses in judgment. I sometimes think if it weren't for PTI and ATH I would never even tune into ESPN outside of when they have a game on, and that if it weren't for Bill Simmons, I'd probably never go to espn.com.
