Default Does anyone else think Madden shouldn't be in the Hall of Fame?

I mean, 112 wins in 10 seasons is solid...but not Hall of Fame-worthy. Neither is one Super Bowl win. Is 10 wins a season (for ONLY 10 seasons) and a single championship the new benchmark? I can think of a half-dozen present-day coaches off the top of my head that could be in the HoF based on that criteria (and some even exceed that criteria).

If Madden was inducted because of his broadcasting, I still don't buy it. The Hall of Fame is for special coaches and special players. The bar is being lowered because of "feel good" picks.
