Singletary disappointed Dent didn't make Hall of Fame

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

Former Bears linebacker Mike Singletary said he is always surprised when former teammate Richard Dent doesn't join him in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, although he doesn't begrudge anyone who is elected.

"I just know that Richard is a guy who should be (in) there," said Singletary, now the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.

"I think the film speaks for itself," Singletary said earlier.

Presently, Singletary and defensive tackle Dan Hampton are the only players from the famed 1985 Bears defense in the Hall of Fame.

Dent finished with 137.5 career sacks, and he was the MVP of Super Bowl XX.

DENT UNFORTUNATELY IS IN A HOLDING PATTERN LIKE RON SANTO OF THE CUBS, HE WILL GET IN THE HALL OF FAME, BUT RIGHT NOW HE ISN'T A PRIORITY TO BE LET IN, SANTO WILL GET IN, BUT THE QUESTION IS, WILL HE BE ALIVE WHEN THAT HAPPENS, RON SANTO HAS DONE SO MUCH FOR DIABETES, I KNOW HE KICKED HIS HEELS AT THE END OF BALLGAMES, ESPECIALLY IN 69, BUT LET THE MAN IN THE HALL AND CALL IT A DAY!

DENT DOES NOT BELONG IN THE HOF....HE DID AS WELL AS HE DID IN LARGE PART DUE TO HIS TEAM MATES. McMAHON SHOULD HAVE BEEN SUPERBOWL MVP. DENT WAS A FINE PLAYER BUT NOT A HOF ER

Heck yeah he should be disapointed. The 80s Bears was a team that played team ball. Each player on that Bears team fed off each other. If you ask me McMicheal should be considered also. The dude ended up with 98 sacks buches of tackeles for losses batted passed he was a Freak and a mad man with a nasty streak.
Great teams produce great players. So if a team has 5 hall of famers only 2 or 3 are worthy because of some B.S. that there cant be to many from one team in the Hall.
Dent and McMicheal should both go its just Fu3ked up that A.P. gets to deside they SUCK.
