In honor of Floyd Little being announced as a senior nominee for the 2010 class of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, we thought we’d publish the following list, compiled by Thomas Mackie, entitled “44 Reasons to Elect Floyd Little to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.”
1 - Floyd Little retired in 1975 as the 7th All-Time Rusher in NFL History; players who were ranked 7th in 1980, ’85, ’90, ’95, and 2000 were all elected to the HOF
2 - The 6 players ahead of Little (Jim Brown, O.J. Simpson, Jim Taylor, Joe Perry, Leroy Kelly and John Henry Johnson) have been in the HOF for years. Johnson, who rushed for just 480 more yards than Little, was inducted in 1987, even though it took him 4 more seasons to rush for more yards.
