When you think of the Patriots early dynasty, you think about just how impressive their defense played. There was Tedy Bruschi, Mike Vrabel, Lawyer Milloy, and others. But one name that might often get overlooked is Richard Seymour. Seymour was an absolute MONSTER during his time in New England. So, why not make the case for him to enter Canton, Ohio? Shall we?
I mean, look at the numbers on Seymour. 460 tackles along with 39 sacks, and that’s just in the regular season. His postseason numbers are just as good with 86 tackles, 4.5 sacks, and two fumble recoveries. Not to mention, he’s won three Super Bowls along with making five straight Pro Bowls. Just to add to everything else, he was a three team first-team All-Pro selection. Numbers never lie. Seymour put up the production on the field to be worthy of a Hall of Fame selection.
The leadership was evident in Seymour. He was the silent, but hard-working type. Everyone knew who he was and what he was capable of on the field. He anchored a defense that was absurdly good. If you need those numbers, go look at the tweet above. Seymour was a big part of that amazing defense and his skill/leadership were a perfect balance throughout his Patriots tenure.
Besides being a leader, you never heard Richard Seymour getting into trouble off of the field. He was a model Patriot. Sure, with the Raiders he was unhappy and retired because he didn’t get the contract he wanted. But, it’s not getting arrested or having family problems made public. Seymour was a good man who played the game extremely hard and did what he had to do every day and every season.
Richard Seymour better get a gold jacket soon. He put in the work on the field. The man won multiple Super Bowls and received numerous awards. What else do you want in a Hall of Fame candidate? Get this man to Canton ASAP!
