Mailbag: Haley In HOF As A Cowboy or 49er? Lucky Moving Up Depth Chart?

Sherlund LuckeAtlanta, GA

Does Charles Haley go into the Hall of Fame as a Cowboy or as a 49er?

Bryan: Haley, as all Hall of Fame players in the NFL, go in as players. The teams they played for are listed on their name plate.

Rob: Like Bryan said, he goes into the Hall of Fame without a single team delineation. It's not like baseball. Haley chose former 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr. as his presenter, but he has maintained strong ties with the Cowboys as a Ring of Honor member. He said back in May that he had promised Bill Walsh before Walsh died that he would present Haley in Canton, so it makes sense for Haley to choose a representative of the San Francisco franchise. He played eight years for the 49ers and five for the Cowboys.

In this draft I believe we came away with studs in Randy Gregory, Byron Jones, Damien Wilson, La'el Collins and Lucky Whitehead! Do you think it's possible Whitehead could find himself in front of Devin Street?

Bryan: Whitehead is doing more to get noticed as a wide receiver than a return man, but that could change once we begin these preseason games. Street has had his moments, but sure would like to see more like that touchdown catch he had from Dustin Vaughan in the red zone on Wednesday. It's hard to just get rid of a player that has the size of Street, though, too.  

Rob:It was interesting to see Whitehead replace Dez Bryant with the first-team offense in the final team period Thursday after Dez left with a hamstring pull and Street missed practice with an ankle injury. Whitehead's return skills are the most exciting part of his game, but he has flashed potential as a slot receiver with his ability to separate and make things happen in space. It's too early to project him ahead of Street, though.
