    Should long snappers (like my boy David Binn) have a place somewhere in the hall of fame?

    Yah my question wasn't whether he is a HOFer or not, but rather... do long snappers (in general) deserve a place. The HOF system doesn't make a lot of sense to me, just like when they retire hockey players' numbers... eventually like in 40 years there will be too many numbers retired... so why not go balls out and expand the amount of inductees per year if eventually there will be hundreds upon hundreds if not thousands upon thousands in the future.

    Nope. Long snappers don't provide enough to the game to even be considered. What do they play, 4-8 plays a game? They don't score, they rarely get tackles, ...

    I do think longsnappers should be a Pro Bowl position.

    Tell that to David Binn.

    He always seems to be one of the first 5 guys down the field on a punt. Even had a tackle on Sunday. :yes:
