The Steelers of the 1970s Devin Bush Jersey , which won four of four Super Bowls, put nine players and one head coach in the Hall of Fame. which one three and appeared in another, will get their first Hall of Famer in two weeks. Former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison, who’ll soon join the team’s Hall of Fame, has a problem with that.“People don’t think we have ballers,” Harrison told Karen Guregian of the , via NBCSportsBoston.com. “I’m like, Ty Law was the greatest defensive back I’ve ever played with. He’s one of the best I’ve ever seen. Richard Seymour, Willie McGinest http://www.steelersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-diontae-johnson-jersey , Troy Brown, Kevin Faulk, these dudes were, bad, bad dudes.”Law has secured a spot in the 2019 Hall of Fame class. The others, including Harrison, continue to wait.“They weren’t just system guys,” Harrison said. “It’s unfair when people say, ‘As long as you had Tom [Brady] and Bill [Belichick],’ well Justin Layne Jersey , dude, Tom and Bill can’t get it done by themselves. It takes a lot of really smart, great players. It’s just unfortunate. It’s almost a form of discrimination. People don’t want to elevate us, or recognize, or acknowledge how great we are, because they’re such haters. Everywhere I go, people hate on the Patriots. So we don’t get credit.“All I hear is Tom and Bill. But that’s such a lazy analysis. They don’t see what the team really is, and that’s really frustrating because a lot of guys get cheated and don’t really get the recognition they deserve.”Tom and Bill will surely both get to the Hall of Fame; they could get in separately for what they did prior to 2008, and for what they did after 2008. The real question is whether others who played with them — along with owner Robert Kraft — will get in. Unlike the team of the ’70s, the team of the ’00s and the ’10s may not end up flooding Canton with bronze busts. Neither of the Competition Committee’s two versions of a modified expansion of replay would address what happened in the NFC Championship Game. Both would allow only for reviews of plays where a flag was thrown.A chance also exists that owners could do nothing or they could vote on a different version of expanded replay. No one seems certain.Saints coach Sean Payton http://www.steelersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-benny-snell-jr.-jersey , a member of the Competition Committee, told NFL Network that if the league doesn’t make a change “then ownership is saying they’re comfortable with what happened a year ago.”Payton also wants officials to become full time.His comments to the league’s network — his strongest to date — come on the heels of owners’ vote. “There are a handful of things that we’ve got to be better at right now,” Payton said on NFL Network, via Mike Triplett of ESPN. “Our best at playing and our best at coaching are spending 20 hours, 18 hours a day. Our best at officiating, it’s their second job. That has to change, because it’s too hard. There’s too much at stake for someone who’s a teacher at a school, who’s a florist, an attorney. That’s backward thinking.“And really as we move forward into the next 10 years, for instance Zach Gentry Jersey , of our game, where do we want officiating? With all of the technology we have available to us, our fans are closer to the game, our fans are way more in tuned and educated as to the correct calls in the game. And we just need to be better.”It’s out of Payton’s hands now. The Saints have only one vote, and any rules change needs 24 of 32 to pass.“I can’t control that,” Payton said. “In other words, you can only get so upset and so angry. But if not, it tells you to some degree — look, there’s part of you that believes that there are those in television that think that drama [of a missed call] is perfect. That’s hard to take, but there are those that believe that.When asked about those who insist the Saints got “robbed” when officials failed to throw a flag on Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman on his hit on Tommylee Lewis late in the NFC Championship Game Joey Bosa Jersey , Payton said, “Put me in that number.”“But the idea that we’re discussing it today and that we’re having this impactful discussion today would get back to that group that says, ‘Hey, people don’t want to [tune] into a car race with no bumps or crashes. People don’t want it to be finely-tuned,” Payton said. “Hey, I understand that line of thinking. But we’ve got to get that corrected, I think, though. The big errors like that, especially in 2019.”
