RE: Julian Edelman
I don't think I can argue with the Top 8 mentioned earlier:

1. Jack Lambert (HOF LB)
2. Antonio Gates (should be HOF TE and redefined position)
3. Thurman Munson (one of the best Catchers in baseball in 70s)
4. Ben Curtis (4 PGA wins including the British Open)
5. James Harrison (5 time Pro-Bowl LB)
6. Justin Edelman
7. Steve Stone (good starting pitcher; won Cy Young Award)
8. Josh Cribbs (3 Pro Bowls)

I remember Munson well from his Stark County days, playing 3 sports at Canton Lehman HS and being a star in the local amateur Class A baseball league that was loaded with talent. In basketball, Munson never saw a shot he wouldn't take. He was pretty good, actually, but was known locally for how often he'd shoot. It seemed like it was every time he had the ball.

RE: Julian Edelman
Using regular season stats to eliminate a player and not giving full consideration to major pist season accomplishments is just not how it works. If you think it is, you must think Eli Manning will not make the HOF. Really? No way he’s a HOF’er based on regular season stats, but two Super Bowl wins basic guarantees he’s in.

Wrestling: Dolph Ziggler (aka Nick Nemeth). WWE Intercontinental Champion, US Champion.

He’s a great performer, but professional wrestling matches are pre-determined.

RE: Julian Edelman
Antizip, I think Gates blows away Edelman because Edelman was never an elite (All Pro) receiver and Gates was an elite tight end. Different positions needs to be taken into account. As far as postseason moments, there are always good players who have great postseason moments that get remembered better. I like Edelman for sure, but I don’t see him making the HOF given how gaudy some of the numbers need to be to get consideration.

Albert, I didn’t include Track and Field but should have. Thank you.

RE: Julian Edelman
Kilgore was a great college athlete as good as many on the list. But his next level (international wrestling) was not as good as some of the pro athletes on the list. He was always stuck behind some great wrestlers and never wrestled in the Olympics or at the worlds. Id say he was better than a Nottingham or Michaels and maybe Hughes (depending on how he finishes his career) but top 10 would be a stretch.

RE: Julian Edelman
Speaking of Gates, Antonio Gates Jr is a HS Jr right now. We're obviously not going to have a shot at him though with the offers he's getting.
