I believe at some point Richard Dent will make it into the Hall of Fame, but it isn't happening this year. I am getting used to this, but I am curious about one of the guys who did, Andre Tippett, linebacker from New England. Now I don't doubt Tippett's ability, but just comparing numbers, he falls behind Dent. He played in the same time era of football as well.
Andre Tippett in his career made 5 Pro Bowls and 5 All Pro Teams.
Richard Dent in his made 4 Pro Bowls and 5 All Pro Teams.
Andre Tippet is 23rd on the all time sack list with 100.
Richard Dent is 5th with 137.5 sacks.
Andre Tippett has 3 years in which he had double digit sacks.
Richard Dent has 8 years with double digit sacks.
Plus, Richard Dent has a Super Bowl MVP against Tippett and the Patriots.
Can anybody give me a real good reason why Tippett is in and Dent is not?
