People trying to say Lynch should have got in before him......

He's the reason I love the Eagles, him and Donny Mac, the lovable sex pest......

Dawkins was in a league above Lynch. It's really not close. Some people man..

LMFAO. Lynch was good sure, but borderline HoF at all IMO. Dawkins was arguably the best 2-way safety to ever play the game.

My favorite Eagle of all time. This is the only Eagle i watched play to make it in the Hall of Fame. So fitting it is the eve before the Eagles play and hopefully win the Super Bowl. What a great Eagles weekend! 

First game I went to was in ‘08, his final season in Philly. Feel privileged to to have seen him play in person, as well.

Lets look at Career Stats for Dawkins vs Lynch (Both played for 16 seasons)

Dawkins - 37
Lynch - 26

Forced Fumbles:
Dawkins - 36
Lynch - 16

Passes Deflected:

As you can see, it's not even remotely close.


John Lynch isn't even a hall of famer in my opinion. Great player sure, but he doesn't belong amongst the best in history.

Wonderful to see Dawkins get elected to the HoF.

And John Lynch was not in the same league and should not get in ahead of Dawkins. The commitee did the right thing this time.

Not a better player, teammate, man or Eagle more deserving. Congrats to weapon X. I think he embodies all of what fans want out of their players. 

Now, if TO goes in as an Eagle, that would be great. lol
