  • Sean Salisbury predicts Aeneas Williams makes Hall of Fame, but Isaac Bruce does not

    On NFL Live this afternoon, Salisbury said that Aeneas is a no brainer to make the Hall of Fame, maybe a first ballot player. But Sean claims that as of right now, Bruce does not get in, though he still has years left to play. He compared Bruce to Art Monk in that he produced without drawing attention to himself with talk, and said Bruce is one of the best route runners ever.

    For comparison, here are some more of his predictions...

    Steve McNair - No
    Drew Bledsoe - No
    Ty Law - Yes
    Derrick Brooks - Yes, maybe 1st ballot
    Warren Sapp - No
    John Lynch - No
    Michael Strahan - "Tweener" but he gets in
    Will Shields - "Biggest no brainer of the group"

    Its a shame that the failure to "draw attention to oneself with talk" renders a player questionable for the Hall of Fame.

    Of course, Sean Salisbury should be an expert on "no brainers."

      Bruce is not done yet and Salisbury was done before he got started. Salisbury is not a big Rams fan, never has been, is is just a has been.

            Bruce does remind me of Art Monk. They have the same kind of quiet confidence and perfect route running.

              It's a travesty and a joke if Isaac Bruce does not get into the Hall Of Fame.

                Salisbury is not a "has been". He's a "never been". He's just a legend in his own mind
                That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!!

                  Am I reading something wrong into this? Or is this guy saying that Bruce, despite being one of the best route runners of all time, doesn't get in because he didn't go around blowing his own horn to promote himself? If that is the case, then Salisbury is either a total idiot, or we are assured of seeing a lot more "T.O.s" and "Sapps "in the years to come, just so these guys can get inducted.

                      Salisbury knows damn good and well that Bruce will make the Hall of Fame, that's why he qualified his statement with "as of right now". By the time Bruce is finished he'll be near the top of the heap in receptions and yardage and a slam-dunk for the Hall.

                          Bruce a Future Hall of Famer?
                          by CarolinaRam
                          Since we're talking about Isaac, I thought I should pose the question.

                          What is the criteria for Hall of Fame as a WR? In the last 20 years, there have only been eight receivers inducted (I counted).

                          Biletnikoff
                          Joiner
                          Largent
                          Lofton
                          Don Maynard
                          Tommy McDonald
                          Swann
                          Stallworth

                          Right now, there are three receivers in the semifinals for HoF - Art Monk, Andre Reed and Michael Irvin.

                          In the years coming, Jerry Rice, Tim Brown and Cris Carter are all shoe-ins. Personally, I think they should have expedited Rice's induction. He should have made his retirement speech and HOF speech at the same time.

                          Bruce is currently 10th in yards, and is sure to move up the ladder. Only 600 yards separates him from Irving Fryar, eighth on the list. After that, it's only a hop, skip and a jump to pass Steve Largent and then Andre Reed at sixth. I say if you pass Largent, you're in.

                          To make his HOF induction a sure thing, Isaac will have to have a few good years to finish out on. It wouldn't hurt to have a season like Jerry Rice did a few years back.

                          Bruce Named Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2019 Finalist
                          by isaacbruce4ever
                          Clarence Dennis STAFF WRITER
                          Former Rams wide receiver Isaac Bruce has been named one of 15 Modern-era finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2019 on Thursday afternoon. The 15 Modern-era nominees will be presented to the 48-member Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee during its annual meeting the day before the Super Bowl. The 15 Modern-era nominees will join Senior finalists and Contributor Finalists — totaling 18 nominees. A modern-era Hall of Fame Finalist in 2017 and 2018, Bruce was a fellow cast member of “The Greatest Show on Turf” and was also a member of the 1999 Super Bowl Championship team in St. Louis. Bruce was selected in the second round of the 1994 NFL Draft by the then-Los Angeles Rams. He played 14 seasons as a Ram, before playing two seasons in San Francisco to close out his career. Bruce retired in 2009 and his No. 80 is retired by the Rams organization. Bruce is a four-time Pro Bowler and is the Rams’ all-time leader in touchdown receptions, with 84 and receiving yards, with 14,109. He finished his career with 1,024 receptions, 15,424 yards, and 91 touchdowns. Seven former Rams were included in the original list of 102 Modern-era Nominees back in September. The initial list included former Rams head coach Dick Vermeil, wide receivers Torry Holt, Isaac Bruce and Henry Ellard, linebacker London Fletcher, defensive lineman La’Roi Glover, and offensive line coach Jim Hanifan. The Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2019 will be announced at the NFL Honors event, which airs annually on the eve of the Super Bowl.


                          Come on, HOF voters, you cannot ignore a receiver with talent, stamina, and true class any longer.

                          Ike Moves Up The Ladder
                          by r8rh8rmike
                          Lost in all the hoopla against Detroit was the fact that Ike moved into the all-time top 10 in receptions, passing Larry Centers and Keenan McCardell for 9th place. Next up on the hit list, Irving Fryar. Is the guy amazing or what?

                          The Hall beckons.

                          Irvin's HOF Induction Should Make Bruce Automatic
                          by AvengerRam_old
                          Michael Irvin is a Hall of Famer. Can there be any question now that Isaac Bruce should be one too when he becomes eligible?

                          Let's look at the numbers:

                          Career Totals (Bruce, of course, still active):

                          Irvin: 750 receptions/11,904 yards/65 TDs
                          Bruce: 887 receptions/13,376 yards/80 TDs

                          Career Single-Season Bests:

                          Irvin: 111 receptions (1995)/1,603 yards (1995)/10 TDs (1995)
                          Bruce: 119 receptions (1995)/1,781 yards (1995)/13 TDs (1995)

                          Number of 1,000 yard seasons:

                          Irvin: 7
                          Bruce: 8

                          Playoffs (per game avgs.):

                          Irvin: 5.4 receptions/82.1 yards/.50 TDs (16 games total)
                          Bruce: 4.9 receptions/84.3 yards/.44 TDs (9 games total)

                          Add to those stats the fact that Irvin had several run-ins with the law while Bruce is one of the best character guys around, how could anyone argue that Bruce is not a sure-fire HOFer?
