I think so.
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
Should have a shot, he's been a real good player for a while now and has won
My thinking as well. Having a few rings cant hurt as well.
How many does he have? I thought he came right after their spurt.
I personally don't think he's a HOF'r. Good player and all, BUT if Cris Carter isn't in the HOF then Vince Wilfork shouldn't even be in the discussion.
Nevermind I looked it up. One super bowl ring and 4 pro bowls. That isn't HOF.

Very good player, yes.. HOFer? No way
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
Great player, but no. Being a DT in a 3-4 makes it very hard to get into the HOF.
He's HOF but a 6th or 7th ballet HOF.

No. Good player on a well-coached team does not equal HOF.
Yeah I have no idea how people are calling him a HOFer. Run stuffing nose tackles on a team known for having average D's will not get you in the HOF. Anyone have his numbers?
Anyways, great player but lol at calling him a HOFer
Who was the last nose tackle type player that made the HOF? I can't remember one. I'm only 32, and I'm sure I'm missing someone but I honestly can't think of ONE nose tackle that is a HOFer. Shaun Rodgers, Siragusa and Kris Jenkins are the only ones that I can think of that are close (I think all are retired now). Not real sure about Rodgers and Jenkins but I'm pretty sure they are. I guess Kevin Williams for the Vikings and Haloti Ngata are right up there as far as active players. I think Ngata will actually become a HOFer though.
I know that Wilfork is technically a DT now, but I think all those guys played in both the 3-4 and 4-3 at some point in their careers.

Yeah I could see Ngata getting in the HOF but Wilfork? I honestly don't see how he could sniff the HOF.. I'm not "hating" on the guy, how could you not like him? I just looked it up.. Only 11 DT's are in the HOF and I haven't heard of almost all of them.
EDIT: I didn't add the DT-DE in my count of 11.. Only the guys that were straight DT's from that list and the total was 11.
Another EDIT: They had a few guys that didn't say if they were a DT or DE but John Randle is one DT we've all heard of in the HOF.... Big mean Joe Greene is another.

When I looked at the list Randle and Greene were the only two straight DT's that I remember. Well I remember Randle but we have all heard of Greene.
Wilfork should be a HOF, guy is an absolute monster.
Feels like you guys are underrating him pretty hard.
Nah, he's a great player.. But his particular position is extremely tough to get in the HOF. He's not Joe Greene or John Randle.
It is going to be tough for 3-4 nose tackles to get in bc they normally don't have many stats. They just tie up blocker and make a few tackle so I don't think he gets in. But he is definitely one of the 2 or 3 beat nose tackles in his era.
Well I don't think it's dumb considering there's not 1 other Nose Tackle in the HOF to compare... So we went with DT's like I mentioned earlier... And there's only 11

He's been the best run stopping DT in football since he got in the league. Homer post.
Who's the best?
Depending on how much longer he can play at a high level, he's got a shot. Nose tackles should be evaluated along the same lines as o-lineman imo, because of the lack of stats.
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
I dunno Wilfork is fricking monster. He has dominated for a while now, and even if it was recognized league wide I can tell you as a BIlls fan the guy has killed us just as much as any Patriot over their domination of us.
If a great DT doesn't make the HOF because they don't put up great stats that is ridiculous.

Is he a HOF'r?
Probably not.. LIke I said, I don't think you guys realize how hard it is to get into the HOF being a run stuffing Nose.
I never said he was a HOF'r...
You asked if Ngata would be a HOFer.. Anyways, if anyone deserves to be in the HOF, it's Vince.. He is a beast on the field and an even better person off the field.
All of this is just opinion and I just don't see him getting in the HOF just because it's SOO hard at that particular position because you can't put u the type of numbers that these voters look for.
