    I love you guys. He gets in and Strahan doesn't and now he's one step above Satan.

    Calm down everyone.

I think its close but the main difference I see is 1 guy is the comparison to which other great players are measured 2 at his position and Strahan isnt.
    BS. Bucs fan over here. So him being on one of the best defenses ever had nothing to do with it? He wasn't even the best player on his own team.

    Thats your opinion the Hall of Fame voters happen to agree with me. I think Sapps presence ,his 16.5 sacks as a DT probably was a big reason why the Defense was so good.

    I remember when Strahan was the best D-line player getting double digit sacks while being held by 3 O-linemen and he didn't get in, something is wrong with those stupid voters.

    Having said that.......

    ......I truly believe however that the fake sack record and the way it was gotten, had a direct impact on the HOF voting this year. Obviously Strahan is a Hall of Fame quality player and will definitely get in, probably next year.
    But if you guys don't think that fiasco with Favre didn't have an impact with some voters, you're kidding yourselves.
    The problem with this theory (and I am actually on your side) is that it doesn't take into account what the voters may have thought about Sapp, and what impact it had on the voting for Sapp.

    I totally agree with the idea that record may stick in some voters minds, but I have to think that Sapp has far, far more negatives that would get him eliminated first.

    So at least in this vote, I eliminate it as a factor.,

    I believe that Sapp has a fairly unique factor: ask 100 people that know the phrase "3 technique" who had the biggest impact on the position, most will say Sapp.
    Ask the same 100 about the DE position, and...well, I loved the guy, but he ain't gonna be considered THE GUY by many.
