In 184 games, Linebacker X was a seven-time Pro Bowl player, five-time All-Pro and member of the All-Decade Team in the 2000s. In 182 games, Player Y was an eight-time Pro Bowl player, four-time All-Pro and member of the All-Decade Team in the 2000s. Similarly strong careers, right? So why is Player X, Zach Thomas, not on the 27-member Hall of Fame semifinalist list and Player Y, Brian Urlacher, is? What has Urlacher done better than Thomas to deserve that? And can we remedy this somehow?
