Guy a nominee for Pro Football Hall of Fame

Former Raiders punter Ray Guy is one of two Senior Committee nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He is joined by former Eagles defensive end Claude Humphrey.
Guy played for the Raiders from 1973-86. He is regarded as one of the best punters in league history. No pure punters have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Guy was named All-Pro six straight seasons and selected to the Pro Bowl seven times during his career.
Current Raiders punter Chris Kluwe long has been outspoken about the fact no pure punters are in the hall of fame. Guy is one of the players he has pushed for enshrinement.
“He’s a guy who should be in the hall of fame because he changed the game at his position,” Kluwe said Wednesday. “Before Ray Guy, no one really tracked hang time because they didn’t understand that that was an important stat. Then they realized, ‘Oh, hey, wait a minute, this is actually helping the team a lot.’ So, if you’re any player who redefined the game at your position, that is the definition of a hall of famer by the fact that everyone knows your name. It’s great news.”
For induction, Guy and Humphrey need the same 80 percent voting support that is required of all finalists. The Hall’s Selection Committee can elect a maximum of two senior candidates and five modern-era candidates for a class no smaller than four or larger than seven.
Here’s how the HOF summed up Guy’s career:
He averaged 40 yards per punt in all but one of his 14 seasons. In 207 career games, he punted 1,049 times for 44,493 yards for a career average of 42.4 yards. He also was noted for his precision as he dropped punts inside the 20-yard-line 209 times from 1976 through his retirement after the 1986 season. Data for that statistic was not available during his first three years. Guy was named to the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 1970s.

    I have really tried to comment and read other comments about the Raiders. The topics wander off and go in many directions, but this calling out racist comments of others, who comment with a different lens of the eye, only for others to comment and throw out the racist charge.

    You guys can disagree or are you in here to debate racist words or comments, I’m really tired of it and this blog is not the venue to air out your personal hate.

    Some of you categorize Mistic as the instigator, what I’ve seen is others trying to instigate Mistic into a rant, seems we should just accept color and different ways a person believes about color.

    What is the definition of a troll on here anyways?
    ===================
    Pretty simple.
    A loser who spends every waking moment on a blog, rushing from poster to poster, saying ignorant things, just to get a response.
    Trolls will post the same stupid comment, sometimes dozens of times a day, just hoping someone recognizes they’re alive.
    They’ll say “Pryor sucks” over and over and over. All day long. All night long. When someone finally replies, they get all excited and tingly. They rush to repeat what they’ve already said hundreds of times, word for word, on stats.
    If someone mentions stats, this same trolling loser will then repost the exact same post they’ve posted hundred of times.
    Trolls take pride in being a loser. They revel in it. They believe the more times they point out they are a loser, that they are less of a loser.
    Trolls enjoy abuse. They live for it.
    When they are ignored, they then start posting childish comments, hoping that gets a rise out of some.
    Trolls get laughed at daily, but consider that a badge of honor.
    Trolls will post to a single poster a dozen times, and when that poster tells the troll to pizz off, the troll celebrates, and rushes to tell everyone how jazzed they are they got noticed, and as a true act of submission, then begs the poster to “say my name”.
    Trolls will do anything at all for a reply.
    When really desperate? Trolls will state they are leaving, just hoping and begging someone will reply that they are still around.
    Trolls also look at that as a major victory in their empty life. They got a reply, that they desperately live for.
    Trolls will make up lies about having a family, even having kids, when it’s obvious they have nothing in their life except living to be abused on a blog.
    Trolls will point out to a poster that they have more friends, more money, better job, and then stupidly point out they don’t have a job, which means they have no money, and living on a blog 16 hours a day means that lonely pathetic troll has no friends.
    Trolls will look at this post, and get excited, almost begging that I’m talking about them.
    And trolls will always make up other names to point out that “so and so makes sense” or “I agree with so and so. He has some good points.”
    Yes, trolls are losers.

    Ok Mistic maybe Flynn looked worse than second season (with us) Soup but not worse than first season Soup. I will give Jason some slack since in his first game Cable the oline guru started a DIII tackle at center…
    But the similarities are there. Honestly I suspect Flynn and Jason Campbell are comparable medium average QBs. Soup was a terrific pro and had a wicked PA fake. Just couldn’t hit the deep WRs that he opened with it and was prone to not pushing the rock.
    Flynn doesn’t yet seem to have that PA savvy but he definately seems to have that “oh $hit” look and move down….

    What I found in my new way of dealing with them is to ignore them.

    Nothing makes a troll more angry than being ignored because they want attention so bad. In fact they will even take negative attention over no attention and that is when the blog starts to degrade.

    Question, without a pizzy reply.

    Do you REALLY think it’s a good idea for DA to throw Pryor out there now?
    Seriously.
    IMO, and I’ve said this before, if I was backing someone that I wanted to start? (I’m on record saying someone win it and you’re my guy)Last thing I would want is my guy out there now.
    Who ever starts is going to take a royal beating.
    Man, if I could, and it was me? i would want the other guy out there for the first month, as the oline gels, and learns from their mistakes, at the other qb’s expense.
    Now, I don’t think Pryor is ready right now to start, and I don’t think he feels he is.
    But being behind that line? To start?
    You’ll be running for your life, taking vicious blind side hits, even when you’re scrambling, and your confidence will take a big blow.

    You really think that’s the best thing for Pryor, right now?
