    About ****ing time they put him in, can't believe Urlacher is in and he ain't yet. One of my all time great Dolphins!

    Zack was good but I would put Urlacher in front of him.

    Fair, but I think Urlacher just had the bigger Name being a high draft pick and all. I think they were pretty similar impact wise and one could argue if Urlacher was the better player.

    Urlacher was good and probably deserves it overall, but he definitely benefitted from the Bears linebacker legacy. He's overall VERY comparable to Zach, who should absolutely be in if Urlacher is.

    Zach Thomas would have been in the HoF at least five years ago if he had a Super Bowl ring -or maybe even just played in one. Hopefully he finally makes it this year.

    I hope he gets in. He deserves it IMO. To put up stats similar to Urlacher, be a later pick, undersized and to still put up the career numbers he did... He's certainly deserving of being in. I'm not sure the actual voters will see it that way unfortunately.

    At least as Dolphins fans we know the player he was and how he overcame his initially perceived physical shortcomings with hard work, dedication, determination & a desire to be the best and most prepared player on the field through film study and instincts. Guy was great to watch; there's no doubt about that. I'd love to have an MLB on this team like him right now.

    In a fair world, he would get in. If the people selecting were voting on merit instead of headlines, he'd already be there. Zach was a beast for his entire career but his consistency was overshadowed by players who frequently flashed. It kills me how guys suddenly become worthy of enshrinement 30 years after retirement.

    If Peyton Manning hates playing against you, that should be merit enough for HoF. My 2nd favorite fin of all time. Epitomized the player who overcame the measurables and completely dominated.
