Hall of Fame not on Terrell Davis’ mind

NFL Network analyst Terrell Davis participated in an NFL.com chat Wednesday. And while he didn’t set the record for most questions answered, he did give thoughtful responses to some of the pressing questions that many Broncos fans likely have.

Davis admitted that he was puzzled by the Broncos’ decision to trade QB Jay Cutler to the Bears and believes that new coach Josh McDaniels is receiving too much credit for the success in New England. But Davis is willing to give the coach and the organization the benefit of the doubt — refusing to root for an 0-16 season as some fan suggested. And just in case you named your dog “Cutler,” as one fan on the chat claimed to do, Davis feels that it’s cool to still root for the quarterback in Chicago, but the team comes first.

One of the most pertinent questions was: What are Davis’ thoughts on the Pro Football Hall of Fame? You can’t really tell the story of the NFL without mentioning Davis, who was one of the faces of the league in the 1990s. He’s forever linked with John Elway and often is credited with getting the QB over the hump and to two Super Bowl victories. Davis should be in.

So, how about it, Terrell? What do you think?

“I don’t make a big deal out of it because it wasn’t a goal of mine,” Davis wrote. “I didn’t play football with the Hall of Fame in mind. It wasn’t something that I set out to achieve. If it happens, I will be the happiest man on the planet. But if it doesn’t, it can’t take away from what I accomplished. It will only add to it. It’s the icing of the cake. But my cake tastes pretty good right now.”
