Just push back on the urge to be so inclusive with the Hall of Fame. Supposed to be the best of the best, not the Hall of Very Good, nice players. Being decent for a long time is great, but is it Hall of Fame worthy? I'd come down on the side of NO.
Doen't mean I think they suck, and that they weren't great players, good for their teams,etc. Just not the best of all time.
