I’d put Jacoby and Mitchell in before I put in Fletcher.  

Fletcher is Hall of Very Good for me.  It is a shame he played alongside some larger than life personalities, because if those guys weren’t out there, I think Fletcher stands out a little more…..even to us.  

Jacoby was a stalwart left tackle for twelve seasons and his three 1st Team All Pro awards to his name.  Why he isn’t in the HOF, I don’t know why.  Mitchell was Cribbs and Hester before they came into the NFL, and wasn’t a terrible offensive weapon in his own right.  Second in the NFL in all-purpose yards behind Jerry Rice, and until Hester broke it, had the special teams TD record with 13 and he is still 2nd.
