NFL | Madden not guaranteed Hall of Fame bust

Mark Purdy, of the San Jose Mercury News, reports former Oakland Raiders head coach and current broadcaster John Madden is not a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame for several reasons. Some voters feel his ten seasons as head coach aren't long enough or feel he should have won more than one Super Bowl during that time-span. Former Raiders WR Tim Brown didn't help Madden's chances when he said, "I spent a long time in Raiderland and when you talk to the old guys who played under Madden, they say, `Look, if not for this guy, maybe we win three or four Super Bowls.' They actually think he may have hindered them."
