With Cam Jordan and Jahri Evans being selected for the 2010s All Decade Team, how you think their chances at winning the Hall of Fame?

I'd say pretty good it just comes down to how long and who they'll be up against

I think both have a good shot. Cam is still in progress. He needs to get at least 100 sacks. He can do that this year. I think he needs to take it further though. 100 sacks and defensive mvp hasn’t been enough for Swilling. Cam has said he wants to break Rickey’s record so he wants at least 116. I think a couple more 12+ sack seasons will get him in.

Sad thing is he probably should of won dmvp a couple of times but alas

I don’t know about Jahri but I think Cam Jordan will make it. More things are working in Cam Jordan’s favor to make it. Dude is legacy, having his father play before him. Dude is likable, the media and the fans like him. Dude plays hard, has the stats to prove it. Now, winning a Super Bowl could put in over the top.

Evans will be eligible for the 2023 class and I think Evans is going in but not likely as a first ballot. Maybe his 2nd or third year.

Think Jahri has a shot and Cam needs to keep producing. If Cam’s career ended now I’d say no for him. Jahri isn’t a lock either imo.

They have a solid shot at the hall IMO. Payton Era Saints may have more players get into the Hall of Fame then the Belichick/Brady Era Patriots.

Jahri Evans is a shoo-in, but as someone already stated, not necessarily in his first year of eligibility. His list of awards and accomplishments can’t be denied.

Wouldn’t be so sure. Drew gets denied awards all the time and I think he’s a better QB than Jahri was a guard. And that’s no slight on Jahri.

Drew’s chances of being voted into the HOF are 100%. 1st ballot.

It may take a bit longer than I thought for Evans to get in. I checked the HOF web site and only 15 Guards are in the HOF at this time.


Seems like there’s some names missing off that list. Larry Allen (he might be listed as a tackle, but all his All-Pros and Pro Bowls were @ guard I think), Will Shields, Steve Hutchinson. Maybe some others, I dunno.

Alan Faneca will be the next one in at some point, which will leave Jahri Evans as pretty much the most decorated guard left.

Anyway, making an All Decade team makes you as close to a lock as you can get, judging from history.
