The only surefire way to achieve professional immortality in the NFL is to be elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. It is hands down the highest individual honor that can be bestowed upon a professional football player, coach, or owner. Winning MVP or Player of the Year awards can help players land massive contracts; leading an already built team to a Super Bowl title (Barry Switzer) looks great on a resume. But at the end of the day, those honors only reflect a one-year window of excellence.
The Hall of Fame is all about recognizing careers more so than dominant individual seasons. That’s why several players who have won NFL MVP awards — guys like former Denver Broncos running back Terrell Davis — do not currently have a bronze bust on display in Canton. Who does?
