The injuries got to him, and Terrel Davis is calling it a career. I think this is a shame, I had faith that he could get back to his 1998 form. He actually seemed like one of the true good guys in the NFL, and Im sad to see him go. If theyre is any justice in the world, hell be in the hall of fame someday. I know its a long shot but Gale Sayers is in isnt he?

There was an article in yesterday's NY Times (I think) that compared him to Sayers - he certainly has the credentials for Canton with his MVP and Super Bowl MVP (in different years) not to mention his 2,000 yard season but I wonder if his last 3 years of attempted play won't hurt him - he is one of the true class acts in Football today and I will be sorry see him go tonight.

Wasn't Davis one of the pro athletes named as a visitor to the infamous Gold Club in Atlanta?

Or maybe I'm just bitter that the Packer defense couldn't stop him to save their butts in San Diego, handing Denver Super Bowl XXXII. (That's why I still say that Holmgren made the right call in letting Davis waltz into the end zone that last time...it's not like Green Bay could've prevented that TD.)

Anyhoo, best wishes, Terrell...and never, EEEEEVER take a championship away from us cheeseheads agayne.

Terrrel Davis has to be HOF bound. Unlike other sports, winning the championship of football helps a lot. He was THE backbone to Denver's 2 Superbowl wins, and a superlative one at that. Even Jim Kelly says so.

I think Davis should be in Canton, but its already not looking good. Peter King from SI, whom I thought would be in Davis' corner said in his MMQB that Davis wouldnt get his vote. King is only one of 38 electors, but I dont think Davis gets in. I want to see what Dr.Z says, he has a vote also. I dont know if anyone on ESPN has one.

I'm sorry to say it, but I don't think Davis should, or will, make the hall of fame. Injuries eroded him too quickly, and its really a shame. Because a few more years like he was, and he TRULY would have been hall of fame bound.

Really is a shame too. Everything I've heard about him puts him as one of the few nice guys left, and he was one hell iof a RB.

At their best, I thought Davis and Barry Sanders were the two best running backs I've seen. It sucks that both chose to or had to cut things short the way they did. I think if Davis had had just one more year where he looked like one of the best guys out there and put up the gaudy scoring stats, he'd be in Canton without a second thought. As it is, I'd have to agree he's not in. It does make me wonder where Curtis Martin will end up belonging, though.

That's why I think he won't go in on the first ballot - perhaps the third.

Not only that, but really honest. When he mentioned he was retiring, and was asked about what he'd miss the most about the game, he said the money.

So does Gayle Sayers deserve to be in the Hall? He only played seven years with less rushing yards in his career than Davis. His career was also ruined by a devastating knee injury. Does he deserve to be there? TD deserves to be there. He was, next to Barry Sanders, the best running back in the NFL in the late 90's. Over 7000 yards in seven years. One of four backs to rush for 2000 yards in a season. 2 rings. Those are some pretty damn good credentials.



Rest in Peace, Chick.

Davis opened it up for the Broncos. Hey made Elway so much more effective and his stats are HOF worthy. Also, if he stays retired he will have proved his point of being an effective running back in prime condition.

Took me a long time to realize and understand that Barry Sanders wasn't coming back. Nothing left to prove.
