    Current Steelers HoF potential players

    It kinda came up in the Hines Ward "Dirtiest player" thread, so I was kind of curious to see what everyone else thought.

    Do we have any players on the current roster (or from the 1st SB that retired or moved on) that is a lock for the HoF?

    IMO there are 3 at this point that are locks:

    The Bus
    Hines
    Troy


    I know most of you will say Ben is a lock, but I still think he needs to have a few more big passing seasons to get in. If he continues his current pace for 4-5 more years...he's a lock.
    Outside chances:

    Faneca
    Hampton
    Farrior (very very outside)
    Ben (but like I said...he continues on this pace and stops ****ing ugly women, he's a lock)


    That's really all I can think of for now.

    What about Aaron Smith. I know he doesn't get the respect he needs from fans but you would think he would from people that know the game better than the average fan.

    He is obviously a big piece in the Steelers defense.

    As much as he is important to the team, he does not get the tackles, sacks, fumbles needed to be considered for the HOF. I like him and would hope to see him in the HOF, but that won't happen. He's good, not great. The HOF is for the greatest of the great.
    He is only good to very good.

    bettis, ben and troy....yes

    ward....doubt it. hes playing in an era where hes really not even considered a top 10 WR, by the time HOF voting comes around for him (no where near first ballot) there will be alot of current guys (moss, fitz, andre johnson) who have all been better over about the same time frame of a career. Wrs dont have an easy path to the hall

    the bus- first ballot
    ward- eventually, yes. does not put up huge numbers (which will hurt) but is the heart and soul of the offense
    ben and troy- they must maintain their level of play for a few more years
    someone not mentioned yeT: heath miller- career is off to a great start and my opinion the the best all-around te in the league, but he also must maintain that level of play for a few more years

    You covered it.
    I do think Hines will make it, though maybe not first ballot which will make it more and more difficult.

    The guys you mentioned above are locks. Even Ben, as long as he stays healthy for another 4-5 years. Longevity is the only thing holding him back at this point, not yards.

    agree about ben

    ward just really has an uphill battle ahead of him imo....theres ALOT of WRs with hall credentials that arent in and hes in a very talented era.

    steelers hall of fame, most definitely....canton...doubtful

    I think if Ward continues on pace this season and has one more season like this one, it will certainly help his cause, otherwise I agree with Train, not sure he makes it in this day and age, but back to back 1300+ yard season with 80+ catches would certainly help.
