Here's the thing. I'm watching one of these shows on the Cooking Channel featuring food trucks. There's a Scottish expat making fish and chips; in a thick brogue he somewhat wearily explains his irritation with Americans who habitually order a side of tartar sauce: "tartar sauce is basically gherkins." That's this blog. I claim no particular insight, no revelation. If you enjoy the flavor, great, but this blog is basically gherkins.

This comment is a bit out of place, but do you think that Ray Guy is worthy of getting into the Hall?

My inclination is no - he doesn't hold up as well as you'd think when you look at the metrics, and the difference among punters just isn't that great. If he got inducted, it wouldn't break my heart, but if you gave me a vote, it would take me awhile to get to a punter.

Wow... it's pretty indicative that a team has had a great history of offensive linemen when guys like Mark Tuinei, Mark Stepnoski, Pat Donovan and Herb Scott can't even make the cut... Also, you'd think there'd be room for Michael Downs and Dennis Thurman at DB... they would probably make the list for most teams...

Who I am going to move into the last spot in the secondary is Newman. One of the reasons I like the exercise is seeing positions of generational strength (and weakness). Mark Tuinei was an awfully good football player.
