Mixon in the Ring?

Does Joe Mixon belong in the Ring of Honor someday?

 

I'd say he deserves strong consideration. His stats, what he brought to the team, the success the team enjoyed for several years, and being a big part of that turnaround.

Here I thought he was going to try boxing?

I was thinking the same thing from the title. 

 

I think Mixon will at minimum get put on a list to be voted on.

Brooks had a career average yards per carry of 4.7 and it was 4.8 in his Bengals years. Mixon is at 4.1.  They had similar numbers of TD scored, 64 for Brooks, 62 for Mixon but JB had more total yards 9459 to 8551 for Mixon. Brooks made the pro bowl 4 times as a Bengal, compared to one for Mixon.

They were talking about this on the growler maybe last week (PDJ and Mo). Paul had some insane stat on Brooks. Only he and Marshall Faulk on the Super Bowl Rams had accomplished. 
 

I’m not old enough to have watch Brooks, but on a stats based merit - I think he should probably get in before Joe.

brooks doesnt get credit for what he did on the field, especially with Ickey getting the fame during his reign of terror, even his YPCatch stats were great, there are only a few guys in his company stats wise for his 2-3 year run of greatness.

 

lol harold green was the RB when i was about 10-12 years old, i was a big fan.

Rudi is still my favorite Bengals RB or even of my faves in general. Just fun as hell to watch him truck people.

 

 

great memories with him, im always shocked when i go check stats how short his success lasted he basically had 3 good seasons, can round up to 4 if you count the overlap year with dillon, but he didnt hit 1000 yards, but was close.

 

random story, Rudi would come into the Sprint store i worked at at Kenwood mall area, and he drove a bentley, every single time, funny enough i always thought "why is he driving that every time" a bentley just doesnt seem like a daily driver. 

 

Random useless info: That store was a hotbed for players, I met John Thorton (and he knew me from working at t-mobile in colerain before that, i traded cell phones for bengals tickets a few times), chris henry, levi jones, ruben patterson(uc/nba), rudi johnson, tim mcgee, david fulcher, Kyle? Cook the shitty center we had for a minute, Chad Johnson, dealtha oneal (became semi friends, would run into him places and he would come over to me and say whats up, chat a little, super nice guy. Im sure im forgetting someone. Chad went to the sunglass hut next to the mason sprint i was at that day to buy the sunglasses he wore when he raced that horse. the manager of the sunglass hut is now a long time friend of mine as well.

 

Even more random, basketball coach for Lutheran school here in denver for my oldest son 2 years of hoops and camps, worked for Cintas, and ran into him at a marriott when we were back for a bengals game and he was there for work. he was very confused.

I remember being pissed for a hot minute when they traded Pete Johnson for James Brooks. I really liked Johnson and he had some success, too. Didn't take long for me to get on the Brooks bandwagon.

 

Hell, stats don't back this up, but I'd vote for Paul Robinson before I voted for Mixon.

To answer the question....  yes. I believe Joe Mix will be on the ring.  But think Brooks and Dillon go first, so it may be a while.

 

For what it's worth, here's MY list at each position for the ring.  Earlier names should preceed later ones, left-to-right.  Current nominees are underlined, those in my overall Top 10 are BOLDED:

 

QB: DALTON Kitna Palmer

RB: DILLON BROOKS Mixon Rudi Ickey

WR: GREEN Collinsworth Pickens

TE: Trumpy Holman

OL: MONTOYA WHITWORTH Lapham

DL: KRUMRIE Dunap Peko Wilkinson

LB: SPIKES R.Williams
DB: PARRISH Fulcher

PK: Breech

HC: WYCHE Lewis

 

My Overall Top 20:

1-10: Parrish, Krumrie, Dillon, Montoya, Green, Wyche, Brooks, Spikes, Whitworth, Dalton,

11-20: Marvin, Trumpy, Dunlap, Palmer, Collinsworth, Reggie, Peko, Fulcher, Lapham, Kitna

 

The actual order of induction will be shuffled, based on recency bias, popularity, exposure, and (I would hope) age, since older players should go in right away while they're here to be recognized (cough Ken Riley cough).  I expect Trumpy and Collinsworth will probably leapfrog many on this list due to exposure, and Whitworth finishing as a Ram will push him down the list in the eyes of the voters.  But if it were up to me, based on impact, talent, and the value they brought to the franchise, I'm comfortable with the list as shown.

 

Note: Ickey is on the list because he's in the same "Ambassador"nice job.. class as Chad and Boomer. He is one of the universally-recognizable "faces" of the Bengals and he and the team will be forever linked... he'll never see Canton, but I wouldn't be surprised to see his name on the ring at some point.

 

You'll disagree.  That's cool, because we can't both we right and it's nice to know it's me.  :)

Great list and agree .

Id give Fulcher boldface type as well.
