All good points but I was putting out there that the numbers don't back up why the guy deserves the hall nod yes I claimed him to be a good player many times but a hall player is a differen't story.
He didn't change the game he didn't bring a new scheme or prowess into the game and he always has had great outside linebackers to go with clogging up the line for him to shine just as the defensive tackles did.
Singletary had great coaching and was actually coaching when he played where as Ray doesn't really teach the defense as he did.
