    I never saw the guy play but looking at Al 'Bubba' Baker's stats, it seems he might have had more of an impact than Luther Ellis. 23 sacks his rookie season (unofficially) and in his final season with the Lions, when the stat became official, he recorded 8.5 in 9 games. I did get the chance to watch Ellis though and loved watching him play. Anyone get the chance to watch Baker play?

    I would like to add Jeff Hartings to the Oline, he went on to become a captain and center for the Superbowl champion Steelers team

    TE David Sloan was pretty good could star opposite Charlie sanders
    Boyd deserves a mention in the LB dept
    Alex karras has to make the team, forget the whole gambling thing.

    I left out Baker because he didnt play in Detroit very long & I left out Karras because he was a cheater & was suspended for gambling on Lions games. Not very cool. I'm gonna take Layne's name off the list too for "allegedly" throwing Lions games & having such a wicked gambling problem that he was traded away.

    Yeah some are pretty obvious, like Barry & Hanson, probably Spielman and Suh too.

    I'm tempted to nominate Johnnie Morton because he was sexy

    For the "one year wonder" category toss Dre Bly in there.

    And finally, the "because he was awesome on tecmo bowl" category has to be Jerry Ball. I think I had a 75 sack season with him once

    Tracy Hayworth and Tracy Scroggins because we've gotta be the only pro sports team ever with two Tracy's on the roster at the same time.

    Karras needs to get in. He'd be in the HOF if he admitted the gambling like the other guys. Stats don't lie.

    Shaun Rogers for a short amount of time was actually pretty good for us. I always loved big baby lol, twas a sad day when he left. I still kinda held out hope we'd one day bring him back on a one year back up deal.

    He did admit to gambling. He bet on football. He was suspended for one year and some think he is being blackballed by the league like Rose. Because those are the only 2 people to ever bet on their own sports

    Is it to soon to add Warford to the list for OL?

    The debate for WR should have been so much better for the 2000's... Stupid Charles, Roy, and Mike... (However Roy wasn't totally useless)
    This is the year...

    Also, if you had another running back hands down Ernie Sims.

    I know nobody comes close to Barry tho.
