vcczar Posted October 5, 2022 Share Posted October 5, 2022 With the exception of special team tacklers and long snappers, each special teams player had two 5 categories to score points in. Lechler and Vinatieri are clear future Hall of Famers. Ray Guy and Morten Andersen are in the HoF. The only other purer STer in the HoF is Jan Stenerud, who didn't make the list. He was in the HoF mainly for longevity and for one SB season. Matthew Slater is the greatest ST tackler of all time and should go to the HoF (His dad is in there as an OT). Lou Groza was the greatest kicker of the 1940s and 1950s, but he was also one of the greatest OTs. I had to strip him of All Pro points because I assume they're more for being the primary blocker for Otto Graham's 10-championship appearances, otherwise Lou Groza tops the list because of All Pros. Patterson is the greatest KR/PR, although Devin Hester has more TDs. Sadly, ST Tackler Steve Tasker doesn't make the list as ST Tacklers didn't get All-Pro awards during his day, but went to 4-straight SBs and was a 7-time Pro Bowler. I don't count Pro Bowls because so many people opt out, which created more Pro Bowl awards to fill up a team, so that award is meaningless. The only lists I need to do next are coaches, but I also want to apply All-Purpose Yards for players and rushing yards for QBs. Name Rank Lechler, Shane 1 Vinatieri, Adam 2 Gostkowski, Stephen 3 Tucker, Justin 4 Hekker, Johnny 5 Guy, Ray 6 Patterson, Cordarrelle 7 Groza, Lou 8 Slater, Matthew 9 Landeta, Sean 10 Yepremian, Garo 11 Lee, Andy 12 Hester, Devin 13 Andersen, Morten 14 Moseley, Mark 15 Manders, Jack 16 Akers, David 17 Gillom, Horace 18 Sauerbrun, Todd 19 Blanda, George 20 Horan, Mike 21 Lowery, Nick 22 Bakken, Jim 23 Roby, Reggie 24 Jennings, Dave 25 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
