Greg Aksamit Thornton, Colorado Jan.15.2013 | 11:59 am mst Where to start! Floyd is easily the most impactful sports figure in my life! I grew up watching and idolizing, as #44 darted through small holes for the Broncos. With Floyds football cards hanging on my wall, wondering how the Broncos would ever manage without him. He is a true hero and and upstanding man. As I sit here typing this message wearing my #44 Little HOF cap from Canton. One of the highlights of my life was watching Floyd with my younger brother be inducted to the Pro football hall of fame in Canton. I met his son Mark and relayed to him how important his dad was in my life as I grew up without a father. He was and is a true example of humility, character and tanacity. Thank you Floyd for so many memories and great moments in my life. God speed #44!
jack barker oxnard, california Sep.09.2012 | 12:08 pm mst Floyd Little to the HOF! Enough said!
Jennifer Verraneault New Haven, CT Jan.14.2012 | 7:40 pm mst I would like Mr. Little how moved I am by his Walter Camp 2011 Awards Dinner Speech this evening. I do not follow football as much as my dedicated significant other does, however I did have a pleasure of tuning in to ESPN3 online and caught your speech. I am so happy I caught it!
Bob Holder Roswell, Georgia Dec.10.2011 | 9:47 am mst Floyd Little was so great to watch. I would set in Mile High and just marvel at his runs. Johnson driving him to his retirement party was special. Floyd was the Broncos for those years. Over a 1000 yards with the “Barely Audible Broncos” no one else could have done it. He is Hall of Fame in my book and needs to be.

The more I learned of him, the more inspired I became. You are truly a class act and a remarkable person. Congratulations on a LONG overdue honor.
Al D.Massachusetts Sep.06.2010 | 10:26 am mst I wrote the class yearbook articles on the 1960 Hillhouse football season, so I knew even then that Floyd Little was going to be something special. What a treat it was to follow his career at Bordentown, Syracuse, and Denver. Bravo, Floyd. All best wishes to you.YTU

Travis L. Rudd Charlotte, NC Aug.29.2010 | 9:36 pm mst Mr. Little, congratulations on being selected into the Pro-Football HOF; I listened to that your speech over and over. My favorite quote was, "none of us is anything until the least of us is something". It brought tears to my eyes! I just want to say thank for making a difference in my life. Love you man!!
Richard Pennington Seoul, Korea Aug.22.2010 | 5:07 am mst I am old enough to remember Floyd Little at Syracuse as well as his career with the Broncos. Truly a great player and a HOFer. The recent Sports Illustrated story about him and Tom Mackie was inspiring!

Congratulations on an honor long overdue. Welcome to the Pro Football HOF!
Jo Anne Omaha, NE Aug.11.2010 | 9:24 am mst I remember watching you play and my folks talking about you. I truly enjoyed your HOF speech and you are still a class act today as you were when you played. God bless you and your lovely family.

I hope you enjoyed yourself in Canton this weekend and will return often in the future.
Ken C Furman San Antonio, Texas Aug.08.2010 | 7:50 pm mst As a High School Senior in Golden and a friend of Ron Gardin who knew you growing up in New Haven and was practicing with the Baltimore Colts in the summer of 1970 in Golden, I will alwasys cherish the time you gave to Ron and me when we visited your training camp in Denver that summer. You radiated class in all you were and did as a Bronco ... and again last night in Canton. Ron Gardin surely is proud of you in Arizona as I am here in Texas. God Bless You!

Ken Rutledge Arvada, Colorado Aug.07.2010 | 10:32 pm mst Congratulations on an honor that is long overdue! As great a running back as your 2010 HoF classmate Emmitt Smith was, if you had played behind an offensive line anywhere near the caliber of those he had, Smith would have been going in today as the #2 all time rusher. You brought so many great memories to all of us here in Colorado, and you laid the foundation for making the Broncos the outstanding franchise they have become. Thank you, Floyd Little!
Mark Swasey Grass Valley, CA Aug.07.2010 | 7:17 pm mst Floyd, 1) You made Denver a city, 2) You are a better person then this award. 3) I feel bad you missed the Broncos good times.
Thank You so much,
Jay Portland, OR Aug.07.2010 | 6:50 pm mst I was only 3 when Floyd retired, so I never got a chance to see him play, but as a long time Bronco fan I thank him for his hard work, all he overcame, and creating a great foundation that the Orange Crush, Elway, and TD were able to build upon. This is a well deserved honor. I look forward to visiting Canton and seeing the heart of the early Broncos where he belongs.

Sharon Lee Bremerton, WA Aug.07.2010 | 11:01 am mst It is so awesome to see you finally being honored. It is about time. I will always remember you because I grew up in Denver and every Sunday afternoon my family watched the Broncos. As for a role model you definately were one for my kid brother. He was going to be the next Floyd Little and had the uniform to prove it. He did not go one to be a football player but your influence helped him to become a man, husband and father. Thanks for all the great memories!
Rev. Winifred Blanchard-Ward Waterbury, CT Aug.04.2010 | 7:34 am mst Congrats to Floyd! Hard work has finally paid him off. I went to grammar school with Floyd and knew that he was destined to be great. I heard him speak at the Air Force Academy and found him to still be articulate and down-to-earth. All of his childhood friends from Long Hill Road are proud of his achievements and wish him well. May God continue to bless you, Floyd.
Raymond Baucom Central Islip, New York Aug.02.2010 | 1:16 pm mst Dear Mr. Little, thank you for the memories.

Though we have never met, we are related by blood, Fredrick Little is my grandfather, may God continue to bless you, and your family.

Remember me the all state basketball player from Hillhouse High class of 1964 that lived around the corner from you in New haven? We both went to Bordentown Military Institute a couple of years apart and you came down from college to show me the ropes at BMI. We went to lunch and you had a positive inpact on me.

David Hathaway Petaluma, CA May.12.2010 | 7:46 pm mst Floyd, I met you probably the first time around 1971, while I played with Tarzan Honor in little league football. I have always reminded people of this explaning why I am a Bronco fan in Raider Country!

Bill Lynch Boca Raton, Florida Mar.31.2010 | 3:11 am mst I watched Floyd Little play prep school football at Bordentown Military Institute in Bordentown, New Jersey and there was no doubt then that he would one day be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

John Vitt Jacksonville, NC Feb.22.2010 | 9:01 pm mst Floyd: When I was 12 years old, my dad took me to my first Denver Bronco game. It was against the San Diego Chargers and we won 13 - 0, Nov. 2, 1969. It was freezing out, and snow was in the bleachers, but it was a great time. I loved watching you play and was one of your greatest fans. I was there when you won the NFL rushing title and I believe it was a game against Cleveland where you were presented with a boat and I think a check for $1133, a dollar for every yard. You were a joy to watch and I had some of my best times as a kid watching you carry the football. I love you Floyd! God Bless you and Congratulations!
Peter Frohwein Aurora, CO Feb.16.2010 | 10:03 pm mst Outstanding!!!Congrats! Been a fan since High school. Bordentown Military Institute Class of 1970

Randy Moyle Westminster, Colorado Jan.26.2010 | 8:17 pm mst Floyd Little was the first superstar the Broncos had. Considering his supporting cast, he accomplished more than many of the running backs in the Hall of Fame. He was not only a greater football player, he is also a good person.
Tyler Gorton Mesa, AZ Jan.24.2010 | 9:22 pm mst No one else deserves it more than you.
Eric Dreher Goodyear, Arizona Jan.23.2010 | 4:14 pm mst Just seen the movie The Express anyone who had to endare those times should be the hall. God Bless and thanks for being you!!!!!!

Jesse Angelo Los Angeles, CA Jan.18.2010 | 11:34 pm mst Placing Floyd Little in his rightful place in NFL history is long overdue! If Little had played for any other team he would already be there. I am not sure why Denver is too often overlooked by the powers that be at the HOF but a step in the right direction is electing Floyd Little now!
William Stott Tucson, AZ Jan.18.2010 | 11:28 pm mst Looking at the stats, and the story behind the stats, should be more than enough for the HOF for Mr. Little. Add the character beyond the game of football, and Mr. Little should have had HOF status a long time ago...
Vivian Smith Atlanta, GA Jan.18.2010 | 9:16 pm mst Should have been in the hall a long time ago, but this wrong can be righted this year. Good Luck!!!

Mike Halpin Williamsburg, Virginia Jan.18.2010 | 8:06 pm mst As a long time Raider fan; Mr. Little made life hell for the Raiders. A classic slashing runner that lit up the AFL-NFL for years. The "franchise" most certainly deserves to be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Fred Haddock Pueblo, Colorado Jan.16.2010 | 6:50 pm mst As heroes go, Floyd Little was mine. Not only for his abilities on the field but for his character on and off the field. He could have asked to be traded to a better team at any time, but played his heart out for multiple 4-9-1 seasons. Running back, pass receiver, punt returner, kickoff returner. Always searching for that illusive 1000 yd. season. It seemed as often as not finishing the season on the IR instead, but back again the next year, and the next. Thank you Floyd.
corey mccormick denver, colorado Jan.13.2010 | 6:59 pm mst I was a kid watching Floyd play he was all the broncos had... he was the reason the broncos stayed in town Floyd could have been our mayor the whole city loved floyd and still does Good luck Floyd

Thank you for many wonderful memories for myself and family. We were fortunate to see most of your games at Mile High Stadium, and I had the distinct honor of seeing the last game you played there. If anybody deserved to be placed in the HOF, it is definitely you. Good luck!

Ken Mitchell Atlanta, Ga Jan.09.2010 | 8:17 am mst
HL Haworth Fruita , Colorado Jan.08.2010 | 9:42 pm mst Floyd was class, on and off the field. For years he carried that club on his back. When he retired he ranked 5th in total yards gained by a running back. For him to not be in the Hall Of Fame is just plain WRONG!
Tim Miller Bloomington, IN Jan.08.2010 | 8:27 pm mst It would be nice and it would certainly be deserving that in the 60th Anniversary year of the AFL that Floyd Little gets in.

You were one of the greatest running backs to ever play the game -- college or pro. Had you played for a substantial team, or in NYC, LA, Chicago, the press and media would have annointed you as such. Your statistics, while great, do not begin to do you justice. Your election is ridiculously long overdue.

Ed Wheeler Mooresville, NC Nov.29.2009 | 7:51 am mst I whole-heartedly support the induction of Floyd Little,into the HOF. As a boy I watched #44 squirt through minute holes for hard earned yardage that most would have been unable to do.So many Sunday afternoons he was the ONLY bright spot in what was a long childhood of less than mediocre Bronco teams. Please consider Mr. Little for the HOF, from a life long fan who remained true to the Broncos through thick and thin.
Ken Johnson Arlington, TX Nov.29.2009 | 7:35 am mst I grew up in Lakewood Colorado. As a kid when we played football everyone wanted to pretend they were Floyd Little.
Mike Kolin Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso Nov.29.2009 | 5:56 am mst Without Floyd, would there still be Denver Broncos? Probably not. That kind of legacy should live in the HOF.
Nicholas Katzin Frankfurt, Germany Nov.29.2009 | 3:52 am mst Please watch "The Express", a movie about legendary Syracuse running back Ernie Davis. Learn a little about the man who brought Floyd to Syracuse, where he began his phenomenal career on the national stage.
Mark Perez Lakewood, Colorado Nov.29.2009 | 1:01 am mst Floyd Little was the Denver Broncos ... teams focused on stopping #44 and he was the first football superstar in the Mile High City. He needs to join fellow Syracuse star Jim Brown in the Hall of Fame.
Christopher SmithNew Mexico Nov.28.2009 | 9:36 pm mst
Michael Greenwald San Jose, California Nov.28.2009 | 8:51 pm mst Floyd was an all-purpose player that not only
ran the ball but he also fielded punts and kicks
He more than deserves this honor. If he does get in, he will probably get the longest standing ovation. As did Art Monk a couple years ago.
Jack Cozart Aurora, Colorado Nov.28.2009 | 4:10 pm mst It was 1968 as a boy in Denver playing sandlot football that I first heard of Floyd Little. I became a Bronco fan and watched him whenever I could. He was the best player in the World I thought. HOF Committee, please help us keep his memory forever and enshrine Floyd Little.

Alex Dye Minneapolis, MN Nov.28.2009 | 9:36 am mst
Lee McMillan Frenchtown , Montana Nov.28.2009 | 8:15 am mst Born & Raised in the mountains of Colorado, I was a small boy when Floyd Little was the only bright spot of our dismal teams back then. Most of my friends abandoned the Broncos to root for winning teams. Floyd Little was the pilot light that kept the flame alive for those of us that were too damn stubborn to give up on the Broncos. Besides being an outstanding athlete, he was an outstanding person and started the dream that has since become the football dynasty known as the BRONCOS.

Matthew Carter Seattle, WA Nov.28.2009 | 1:41 am mst A life-long Broncos fan, as a nine-year-old, I cried my eyes out when Little played his last game at Mile High. That day, the Broncos lost their greatest athlete and the fans lost their most beloved player. This man should be in the Hall of Fame.
Edward Trivett Forgan, Oklahoma Nov.28.2009 | 12:20 am mst Mr. Little;
You were an inspiration to me in my youth. It is because of you and your never give up attitude that got me to play football when all others said I was too slow to play. I kept at it and became a starter and team MVP on the DL AND OL in 1975.
I will always remember you, and hope and pray that you get into the HOF.
Joseph Paoletti Trinity , fl Nov.27.2009 | 8:57 am mst I went to school in New Haven, Ct and was born in Syracuse you are more than worthy for this honor it is loooong past due!
John Urbana Denver, CO Nov.27.2009 | 6:44 am mst Growing up watching Floyd, he became my favorite bronco. Even a little kid can recognize HEART.

Steve King Tampa, Florida Nov.24.2009 | 12:03 pm mst
Raul Rodriguez Edison, NJ Nov.23.2009 | 7:55 pm mst I grew up in Denver in the late 1960s and the only thing that kept our family going to old bears stadium was when the signed Floyd Little. Without him the city would never have passed the tax law to expand the stadium and keep the Broncos in Denver. His play on the field kept Broncos fans on the edge of their seats. He was the only back in the NFL who could do it all and he did it without much help. He was and is the Franchise. Floyd is a Hall of Fame player and an even great person for sacrificing a better career somewhere else to stay in Denver and keep the Broncos our team.
Jeremy Ellis Chcago, IL Nov.23.2009 | 2:53 pm mst Mr. Little-
Great to meet you and play cards with you. This is your year, I will be watching you gain that honor.

Joe Sanchez Denver, Colorado Oct.04.2009 | 1:05 pm mst I remember seeing Floyd being carried off the field. That shows you the respect and admiration of what you mean to your team. Denver was proud to have you as their RB and franchise for so many years. I will be in Canton for this one as I was for our first one!!
Les Simpson Arvada, Co Sep.26.2009 | 11:32 pm mst The only reason the broncos are still in Denver ia the drawing power of floyd Little.Thank you sir and if any runner deserves the honor of being in the Hall of Fame it is you
Mary Pat Simpson Arvada, CO Sep.26.2009 | 5:35 pm mst Finally, the Hall of Fame is going to induct the greatest football player, plus the greatest Denver Bronco of all time?
What an exciting runner he was. The entire stadium at Mile High ran every step of the way with Floyd...his retirement celebration(?) with his runs being re-played had every fan on their feet, cheering him forward-
again-it was such an exciting experience to see Floyd break loose!
Congratulations, Floyed Little...no one is more deserving!

Thomas Gregory Little (no relation, though I wish I was) Now of Dallas (formerly of Denver), Texas Aug.25.2009 | 2:43 pm mst If Floyd Little is not enshrined in the NFL HOF, it will prove what a joke the HOF is and that it and the NFL are run by a bunch of narrow minded, myoptic idiots and biased thugs. Based soley upon his performance and statistics he should have been in years ago. If you look at the heart he played with and the sole he gave to the team, the community and the AFL/NFL as a whole he should have been elected the day he retired. Do the right thing and put him in the hall. And he is not the only Bronco that deserves to be in, but let him be the first of the old guard.
Kevin McKenna Lakewood, CO Aug.25.2009 | 1:35 pm mst Thanks for your play and for never settling for 1/2 a loaf!!

Renee Holmes Brooklyn, New York Aug.23.2009 | 4:10 pm mst Any sportswriter worthy of his or her job knows that Mr. Little deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. He has earned it. His records speaks for itself. He has won many awards and acknowledgements of his talents and performance on the field. What does it say that a man who save the Denver Bronco franchise is not being honored in this way? What does it say about the Hall of Fame committee, past and present, that fans and those who read his story and check his record that they have to sign petition for
Mr. Litte to get this recognition that he deserves. What is the criteria for being elected to the Hall of Fame? I know he meets and exceeds the critera. So what is the problem? Do the right thing!
Ed Houser Bronx, New York Aug.23.2009 | 3:51 pm mst His career during the time speaks for itself. How can such a great player be left out. He was the heart and soul of the Broncos...Let him in!
James Collins New Orleans , La Aug.23.2009 | 1:26 pm mst Floyd was something special on the field. Many NFL former stars that played with and against him know that. To overlook his accomplishments would be tragic. To have to win a championship and be on a winning team in order to make it into the hall of fame is a joke.
Bob Hummel Prescott Valley, Az Aug.21.2009 | 7:21 pm mst Im a big Broncos fan an dthe only reason I started watching was because of FLoyd Little.I was born in Denver and he was all the Broncos had for a lot of years. He should already be in the H.O.E
Bob Sargent Louisville, CO Aug.21.2009 | 7:35 am mst One of the most successful franchises in the last 35 years of NFL history has a total of 2 players in the HoF? Makes sense. Not. Floyd deserves to be in the Hall, as well as several other Broncos. What a joke the NFL HoF is for snubbing Denver for all of these years.

The man had 8,741 all-purpose yards and 52 TDs in 9 seasons, was elected to 3 Pro-Bowls, and is due to be enshrined in Canton! He is the keystone to a franchise that otherwise may not have survived without his star power, put him where he belongs, please!

Derek Goodner Littleton, Co Jul.24.2009 | 2:59 am mst With the odd and unjustifiable omission of Floyd Little from the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the league and the HOF lose a certain amount of credibility. It becomes difficult to take them and their selection process seriously with these types of flagrant and possibly willfull oversites.
jacky jagadics golden, co Jul.17.2009 | 3:27 pm mst The greatest Denver Broncos player ever! Thank You for always giving your best, on and off the field.
Stephen Racz Milford, Connecticut Jul.16.2009 | 7:51 am mst I have followed the career of the dynamic Floyd Little since his days at Hillhouse High School. His ability on the gridiron was fantastic. Not only was he one of the greatest running backs I have ever seen, but he is a true role model for our youth of today. His work ethic was second to none...To you Mr "44" I tip my hat and say God Bless to you and yours

Reynold Tamayei Honolulu, HI Jun.04.2009 | 1:38 am mst Just returned from an Alaskan Cruise where I met Floyd and Deborah Little in the casino of the Norwegian Cruise Liner. Being from Hawaii and watching him play on TV as a little kid, meeting a NFL legend in person is an unbelievable experience; however, Floyd was so "classy" and so down to earth he treated me as a close friend. I am casting my name and whatever it takes to see him get his due recognition in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Regarded as the "Franchise" for saving the Broncos from possibly moving to another city, speaks volumes of his contributions as a player to his team, community and NFL.
Dave Gestner Denver, CO Jun.02.2009 | 3:54 pm mst It is a crime that Floyd Little is not in the HOF. His accomplishments on the field speak for themself. Even better, he is a greater man off the field, a classy, dignified person.

Don Burnett Anaheim, California May.04.2009 | 8:53 pm mst Floyd, I work at the Peacock Suites and it was honor to meet you today. I totally agree with everyone that you should have been in the Hall of Fame a long, long time ago. You are one of my heroes and I would be proud to put my name on anything if it helps you get in the Hall of Fame. Thank you for the autograph, it will be framed and placed on my wall everywhere I live. Please thank your wife for bringing you to meet me, I deeply appreciate it and will remember it the rest of my life. God Bless and see you in the Hall of Fame! Don
Jerry Howe New York, NY Apr.16.2009 | 8:43 pm mst I remember Floyd Little as an outstanding college player who was told by many he was too small and too old (25) to make it in the pros. As a Jet fan, I was hoping he would join Joe Namath. Instead, the Broncos nabbed him early in the 67 draft. I sincerely believe that, taking nothing from the Jets RBs of the late 60s to early 70s, if Floyd had become a Jet the team would have won back-to-back Super Bowls and better. The man was that kind of player. He could do it all and proved he was a Hall of Famer on some horrible Broncos teams. He led the league in punt returns, total yards, combined yards, TDs, back-to-back rushing titles and wound up 7th all time in NFL history. Just think what he could have done if he had been surrounded by more talent. Truly an amazingly gifted player and tremendous person.
Matt Gullion Salinas, CA Apr.14.2009 | 7:24 pm mst Floyd Little deserves to be in Canton. i hope he is the senior candidate for 2010 because he is truly deserving of hall enshrinment.
Tim Fitzgerald Centennial, Colorado Apr.13.2009 | 8:19 pm mst Floyd Little will always be Mr. Bronco to me. He is one of the cornerstones of the Bronco franchise. Without his contribution to the franchise, the Broncos would not be one of the most successful organizations in the NFL. When he is inducted to the HOF, and he will be, I will be there.
Keith Martinson Weymouth, Mass Apr.11.2009 | 2:55 pm mst As a longtime football historian it is pretty sad Floyd is not in the HOF. 7th all time leading rusher at the time of his retirement plus a great return man and a team captain who put the Broncos on the map.
Kyle Herman Beaver Dam, Wisconsin Apr.09.2009 | 7:06 am mst we could of not accomplished what we had done in denver if it wasnt for Little god bless floyd hopefully you will be put in the HALL OF FAME where you rightfully belong

Tony Kyasky Point Pleasant, NJ Mar.19.2009 | 6:25 pm mst Throughout his professional football career Floyd has demonstrated the qualities and performance that should more than qualify him for entrance into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. However beyond football is Floyd the individual and as a person Floyd stands in a class of his own. I was very priveledge to have the opportunity to play with Floyd at Syracuse and hope that he is rewarded for his contributions to professional football and the Denver Broncos.
Jerry Chiari Buffalo, NY Mar.19.2009 | 7:45 am mst I had the privilege of playing college football with a number of fine athletes. None was better tha Floyd Little. His prowess continued throughout his professional career. Failure to induct this man into the Professioonal Football Hall of Fame would truly be an injustice.
Vince Bruett Westfield, New Jersey Mar.19.2009 | 7:24 am mst Floyd clearly demonstrated his great football skills at both the college and professional level and truly deserves to be recognized by induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
JIM LEMESSURIER TULLY, NEW YORK Mar.19.2009 | 6:41 am mst IT WAS CERTAINLY MY PRIVILEDGE TO BE ON THE SAME FIELD AS FLOYD LITTLE AT SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY. HE IS A TRUE AMBASSADOR TO THE GAME, A FINE AND GENTLE MAN, AND AN INSPIRATION TO US ALL.

Paige Roberson Birmingham, AL Feb.02.2009 | 10:40 am mst To attempt to measure the impact and importance that Floyd Little has made in football history is almost impossible. It is an outrage that he has not been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Indeed he was on of the great pioneers of this sport for others who have come after him that looks like him. It is time that he be recognized for the role he played in football history.
Lisa Sarmer Auburn, Wa Feb.02.2009 | 9:10 am mst He is a smart man as well as classy--One of a kind.

Harold Lovely Guilford, Ct Jan.23.2009 | 1:55 pm mst An injustice that needs to be corrected. His accomplishments speak for themselves.

Hearing your name made me want to know more about you and your accomplishments. I love football, I just wasnt a Denver Broncos fan. Had I been I know I would have enjoyed watching you play.

Anthony Ganni High Ridge, MO Sep.03.2008 | 6:33 am mst I remember watching him as a kid. What a thrilling running back.
Jerr A Forte Sep.02.2008 | 12:08 am mst When I was 8 or 9 I played little league in Lakewood Colorado. After the game Floyd Little passed out free tickets to the then struggling Denver Broncos. My Parents took my brother and I, we had so much fun they bought season tickets.We still have them today. Later that year I saw Floyd again and got his autograph. Ever since he has been my hero, Iâ€™ve never forgotten him nor replaced him, not even with John Elway. Iâ€™ve been going to Bronco games since 1969 seen all the greats. You name a hall of famer Iâ€™ve seen them. To this day I remember the thrill of watching Floyd run with his bull legged swagger and electrify the crowd. Heâ€™s why Denver survived. Two years ago I met him again at the alumni weekend at Mile High. (Heâ€™s ALWAYSâ€™S there) I told him the story I just told you, and thanks him for the ticket I held in my hand .He remembers those days and smiled. I then asked him if I could have my picture taken with him; He was a gracious as ever. With Billy Thompson Lois Wright and Karl Mecklenburg teasing him and me we took the picture. The next year he released his book of the old days gone by. I got him to sign my picture and the book. He paused before he signed the picture, wondered which of us had the biggest belly. Today I have that picture along with his Jersey proudly displayed in my office. Please induct Floyd Little, Proudly display his bust in your Hall he and countless others will be grateful gracious and elated. Iâ€™ve include the picture, to me itâ€™s as priceless as to be honored by your organization.

David W Prescott Phoenix , Arizona Aug.31.2008 | 7:07 pm mst Floyd Little spoke at my Mattydale Viking Pop Warner banquet was I was a kid and he gave me my most valuable player trophy.

Mike Sturdivant Overland Park, Kansas Aug.24.2008 | 7:44 pm mst Any running back that retires as the 7th leading rusher in league history should be a lock for Canton. Especially when that running back also returned punts and kickoffs.
Camille Sturdivant Overland park ,KS, KS Aug.24.2008 | 7:42 pm mst Good luck.
Karl Barnes Chicago, IL Aug.24.2008 | 2:13 pm mst Mr. Little has always been a example of how a NFL player should be in the eyes of his fans. Even today his life is a shinning example of the praises that he due. Peace be unto you eternally
James Middleton Dallas, TX Aug.24.2008 | 7:25 am mst Floyd Little is long overdue for the Hall of Fame. He overcame so many obstacles and somehow retired 7th in NFL history in rushing. He was one of 26 rookies Lou Saban kept in 1967. The team was young with nowhere to run. Somehow Floyd led the NFL in punt returns and the league in combined yards. He led the league in combined yards again in 68. In 69, he was leading the NFL in rushing by over 300 yards when a knee injury forced him to miss the last 6 games. In 1970, despite 5 QB starting for the Broncos, he led the AFC in rushing. In 71, despite playing with 3 more new QBs and Saban resigning with 5 games left, he led the NFL in rushing with 1,133 Yards. And so it went, season after season. Floyd being productive without much team structure. Oh, yes. The experts said at 5-10, 195 pounds, he was too small to play and ranked at least 8 RBs higher before the 67 draft. He outrushed all of them while becoming a 5-time Pro Bowler. He was the consummate professional and The Franchise for the team during the tough years. Floyd Little deserves to be enshrined in Canton.
Peter George Albany, NY Aug.17.2008 | 6:24 am mst I am in full agreement. I added this link to my new site http://www.hoftalk.com
Best of luck.
Scott E. Cole Syracuse, New York Aug.15.2008 | 3:15 pm mst Floyd Little deserves enshrinement in the Hall of Fame. No player ever did more for his team with less talent around him. A true gem as a person and player. Syracuse still remembers and loves you !

Ray CiezinskiNew York Jul.10.2008 | 11:25 am mst Floyd epitomizes what it means to be a Hall of Famer. Along with his HOF stats of retiring 7th all-time in NFL history, and gaining more yards rushing, and yards from scrimmage (rushing and receiving), than any back in the NFL or AFL during a six-year period from 1968-73, Floyd is the reason the Broncos remained in Denver. "The Franchise" kept the franchise from relocating in those tough early years. The 5-time Pro Bowler was the first star that began a string of sellouts at Mile High Stadium that lasts today. He also was a tireless worker in the the Denver community, working hand-in-hand with the mayor, and winning national honors for humanitarian service along the way. Plus, he was team captain all 9 years of his career. Floyd Little is a legend of the game and one of the finest people to ever suit up.

Teann Flaharty Fort Worth, TX Jun.03.2008 | 1:41 pm mst Stop, think and then induct Floyd Little right now!!! Everyone knows it’s the right thing to do. We all have heroes and idols growing up and Floyd Little was mine. To this day # 44 is my favorite number. As a small girl growing up in Denver, Floyd was “The Man” he was unstoppable and amazing to watch. It will be amazing to watch his induction into the Hall of Fame.

Sherry Hart Baltimore, Maryland Feb.11.2008 | 8:35 am mst May your hard work and talent be recognized.

Renae McGregor Auburn, WA Feb.10.2008 | 10:09 am mst Floyd truly should be in the Hall of Fame.
Vivian Batista Federal Way, Washington Feb.10.2008 | 8:06 am mst I have a friend who told me about the experience of watching Floyd play, and it goes beyond how his face lit up in the tale, as his words simply expressed that before there was the heroes of today - the heroes of yesterday paved the way - and Floyd to many like him and his buddies - was that hero.
Michael J. Fox Seattle, Washigton Feb.09.2008 | 4:29 pm mst When I played high school football in Connecticut, Floyd was the best football player in the state; when I went on to Cornell University, Floyd established himself as the top running back in the country during his college career at Syracuse University, 50 miles to the North of Cornell, following the great Syracuse backs Jim Brown and Ernie Davis. For the Broncos, Floyd carried an entire team, and unlike the pro running backs of today, he ran back kickoffs and punts, proving his durability and retaining his outstanding speed and cutting ability until he retired.
Floyd Little is now an outstanding citizen and business leader in the Seattle area, and I was pleased to have him serve as a juror in my court room. He was elected foreperson, and did an outstanding job. Judge Michael J. Fox
denise sandoz zimmerman, minnesota Feb.09.2008 | 6:49 am mst we all feel the need to support someone who was an amazing football player who should never be forgotten.

Mike Ortiz Littleton, Colorado Feb.08.2008 | 10:00 pm mst Floyd Little should have been the 1st Denver Bronco in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I remember going to the Hall of Fame and seeing his #44 jersey being displayed when no Denver Bronco had been inducted. He really deserves to be there.
Al Wittich Tacoma, WA Feb.08.2008 | 8:50 pm mst You deserve to be considered for the HOF for your years of exceptional performance on the Bronco team!
Darleen Price Tacoma, WA Feb.08.2008 | 8:47 pm mst That Floyd Little of the dreaded and hated Denver Broncos? That Floyd Little we San Diego Charger fans would sit in the stands and boo :-) (I lived in SD and attended almost every home game in that era)?? It is my pleasure to sign the petition for That Floyd Little. Your nomination is long past due.
Eric Carroll Golden , Colorado Feb.08.2008 | 1:13 pm mst
Emery Moorehead Northbrook, IL. Feb.08.2008 | 1:06 pm mst Floyd Little was an outstanding football player for many years with the Broncos and the face for the city of Denver when there was no NBA or MLB in town. His on the field record speaks for its self but his off the field record is equally impressive. There can be no greater representative of the early pioneers of the AFL, the City of Denver, the Broncos, or the NFL HOF. Let him in!
Brian Swindahl Tacoma, Wa. Feb.08.2008 | 10:15 am mst Good luck Floyd, you deserve it!

Christina JacksonCT Feb.08.2008 | 7:23 am mst It is a travesty that Floyd Little has not been inducted into the Football Hall of Fame. It is time to correct this injustice to a great player and role model on and off the field.
Alicia Florencio syracuse, ny Feb.08.2008 | 6:52 am mst Floyd..It was a honor to see you at the dome, at the retirement of you jersey. A great man, with accomplishments well worth the hall of fame!

Rob Burkett Longmont, CO Feb.07.2008 | 9:45 pm mst Floyd carried the Broncos during some very tough times, he WAS the offense during his career. His career was probably shortened by over use because they had no one else. He definately deserves the HOF!
Jessie R Whatley LaJunta, Colorado Feb.07.2008 | 9:34 pm mst He is one of the best running backs Denver ever had, and should have been there 20 years ago.
Cynthia Norris/ Whatley La Junta, Colorado Feb.07.2008 | 9:19 pm mst He is one of the most deserving people of that title, I know of.

C.E. Pons Washington, D.C. Feb.07.2008 | 7:52 pm mst The Hall of Fame would be incomplete without the presence of "The Franchise," surely his place is secured.
Mike Carroll auburn, WA Feb.07.2008 | 7:03 pm mst Floyd Little was the first true superstars for the Broncos. In an era when running the football was was the priority, Flotd Little was one of the best in the game.

Floyd is an example of what a Hall of Famer should be. Floyd had great numbers and he has a great deal of character and class.
Daniel C Smith Shafter, California Feb.07.2008 | 1:21 pm mst Floyd Little was an outstanding running back with the statistics to validate this statement.

Scott Pingel Federal Way, WA Feb.07.2008 | 9:26 am mst Floyd Little was back ahead of his time. He won rushing titles, went to Pro Bowls, and he is a back that all up-and-comers should look up to. He played while he was great and has now had a very successful "after football" life. If he is not a hall-of-famer, why do we have the hall at all?
Christine Devine Federal Way, WA Feb.07.2008 | 9:02 am mst

Dr. Frank L. Harper, Jr., PhD, MBA, MSIE, PMP Atlanta, GA Nov.26.2007 | 9:56 am mst Mr. Little is what I will always call you. I am a former All-State HM, All-American HM from our alma mater James Hillhouse High School. We both had the opportunity to play for Coach Dan Casey. You allowed me to interview you for our school newspaper--of which I won an award! I'll never forget your encouraging words, "You've got it, so go do it!" Congraduations are being named to the Hillhouse Hall of Fame. I share the sentiments of all the other guests you're day is coming for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. May God continue to bless you and your family.
PS: Thanks for the encouragement!
Jim Gianvito Englewood, CO Sep.27.2007 | 8:37 pm mst Growing up as a kid in New York City, I would scour the newspapers for any news of Floyd's exploits. When I was lucky enough to find a tiny column, I'd happily cut it out and saved it to this day. One of my most prized possessions was a small Floyd Little jersey that I wore so much it wore 'out'. I met Floyd last year at a book signing and just sat front and center hanging on his every word. To finally be face to face with the man I admired so much was truly an honor. I was thrilled to discover how gracious, genuine, and funny his is! Thanks Floyd for all you've given your fans over the years. I hope to be able to see you enter the HOF fame soon!
Stan Dyer Arvada, CO Sep.26.2007 | 9:31 am mst I cannot believe that Bronco fans can forget so much in a paltry 30 years. To me, Floyd Little will always be the first name I think of when I think of the Broncos. Thanks, Floyd, for all you did for Denver and the Broncos. I will never stop promoting your induction into the Hall of Fame. You need to be right there with your Syracuse alumni Ernie Davis and Jim Brown.
Sue Tipton Josephine, Texas Sep.20.2007 | 7:23 am mst I was raised in Colorado and loved the Broncos. Still will take Broncos over any team.
Stan Dyer Arvada, CO Sep.20.2007 | 6:27 am mst When I was young, I remember wondering, "What would the Broncos do without Floyd Little?" Now, I wonder, "How did the Hall of Fame ignore this man for over 30 years?" They wouldn't ignore him if they had to try to tackle him!
Brian Bleess Wheaton, Il Sep.20.2007 | 6:06 am mst Football is no longer football when played in domes and not out in the cold and snow. Let\'s have that conversation and discuss the degrees of difficulties then versus now.
Peggy Henderson Marietta, GA Sep.20.2007 | 4:45 am mst A friend of mine, Stan Dyer wrote a story and let me know of the great efforts Floyd Little put forth in his career with the Bronco's. The Hall of Fame should be honored to include him.
James Murphy Springfield, Virginia Sep.18.2007 | 8:40 am mst I'll never forget his home debut against Kansas with Gale Sayers in 1964. He stole the show then and continued to excel with poor Bronco teams in the late 60s and early 70s. He was a genuine nice guy and a credit to his sport. He exemplifies everything that a Hall of Famer should be. Give him his due!
Paula Scott Oakdale, Connecticut Sep.15.2007 | 3:11 pm mst I am a born and raised Colorado NATIVE. There would be no Broncos in Denver if it wasn't for Floyd Little. I have been a huge fan since the guys all wore striped socks. I reveled in the wins and I cried at the loses, but nothing com pairs to watching a man run down field breaking tackles like Floyd did. I always wondered if the fact that we could have driven a small car through those bowed legs had anything to do with his amazing talent. I have watched many players come and go over the years, but ask any REAL fan and they will tell you, just like John Elway did, if it wasn't for Floyd the Broncos would not even be around.
On a personal note, I meet Mr. Little at the house of a very dear friend whose father happened to be Bob Collins. I was a very young female fan, very nervous and excited to meet one of my Heros. Mr. Little made me feel at ease the moment we were introduced. While I am sure that he does not remember meeting me,I have never forgotten his kindness, or his patients.
CANTON BE HUNG. Denver is a team to be reckoned with and we will not let you ignore us any longer.
#44 will hang in the HOF. You know that Denver Fans NEVER give up and we will not be silenced.
Ask any team that ever tried to call plays near the SOUTH STANDS. Do I hear stomping?
I am also looking forward to reading Floyd's book. Being a transplant to the east coast it is hard to hear about things that happen at home. Out here they don't think anything happens west of the Mississippi.
With much Affection, Good Luck.
Jerry Chiari Buffalo, New York Sep.11.2007 | 1:04 pm mst Floyd Little is one of the most outstanding individuals I have ever met. Being an outstanding individual ; however, does not alone make one worthy of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Being the outstanding professional athlete Floyd Little was, certainly does. Floyd's accomplishments on the high school, prep school, college, and professional fields speak for themselves. To fail to enshrine Floyd Little would serve only to deminish the esteem of the institution itself.
Greg Stafford Colorado Springs, CO Aug.25.2007 | 9:48 pm mst
Ed Canfield Twin Lakes, Wis. Aug.25.2007 | 8:35 am mst I remember watching Floyd run over people when I was younger. Floyd absolutely belongs in the HOF!!
Tim Clendenin Wamego, Kansas Aug.25.2007 | 3:44 am mst
Matt Lee St. Louis, MO Aug.24.2007 | 5:58 pm mst Floyd seems to be one of the greatest rushers of his time, even though I wasn't around to see it. He seems to be a great guy off the field as well. About 7 years ago I sent him a letter asking for his autograph and he wrote me a very nice message back. Being a 13 year old at the time, it made my day. I still remember it these years later and one of the greatest signs a player has ever shown me. He deserves to be in the Hall of Fame!!
Brice Huisken Denver, CO Aug.22.2007 | 7:32 am mst
Rodney Reinhardt Rio Rancho, New Mexico Aug.22.2007 | 6:23 am mst It's a long over due honor that Floyd Little joins the list of gret players in the Hall Of Fame. Anyone who spent anytime in the 60's and 70's watching him run, when every team knew Floyd was the Denver Offense knows that he deserves to be in the Hall.
C.J. Arnold Booneville, Mississippi Aug.21.2007 | 5:20 pm mst It's a shame that he isn't in the HOF.
Kyle Montgomery Munds Park, Arizona Aug.21.2007 | 2:02 pm mst Floyd Little belongs in Canton.

And there you have it I have so been named.
Terry Johnson Waynesville, Ohio Aug.20.2007 | 7:38 pm mst I became a football/Bronco fan in 1971. We didn't win a lot then but watching Floyd Little play was worth it. As much as I love Mr. Elway, you belonged in the Hall well before him.
Jason Bott Cheyenne, WY Aug.20.2007 | 7:16 pm mst Had Floyd played in Dallas or Pittsburgh or any east coast team, he would have already been in the HOF.
Chica Ang Olympia, Washington Aug.20.2007 | 7:11 pm mst Mr. Little, you will always be a special part of my childhood memories! How I wanted to play football with you....
Larry A Blake Tucson, Arizona Aug.20.2007 | 6:10 pm mst Floyd Little, I saw your first game, and I saw your last. Moreover, I have seen virtually every starting running back since Jim Taylor. You were as good as any of them. You should have already been in the HOF, awaiting the induction of Randy Gradishar, then John Elway. Let's hope they do you justice this time.
Alexander M. Winter Springs, Florida Aug.12.2007 | 11:51 am mst If Little got the recognition that morons like, The Juice (or The Murdurer), he would have been enshrined in his 1st year of elgibility. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE TO KEEP HIM OUT FOR ALL THESE YEARS!!!
Carol Novak Westminster, CO Aug.03.2007 | 6:01 pm mst Floyd - As a native of Colorado, I watched your career with the Broncos, and I can truly say, you saved the Broncos, and you definitely deserve to be in the HOF.
Glenn Centennial, CO Aug.03.2007 | 6:15 am mst Floyd was amazing....made me a football fan for life...along with Randy Gradishar and "the snow goose"...amoung others.
Ryan Gault Cary, NC Aug.02.2007 | 3:18 pm mst It is an absolute crime that Floyd Little and Randy Gradishare are not in the Hall of Fame.
Jeffrey Hussar Toledo, OH Aug.02.2007 | 3:13 pm mst Floyd deserves to be the next of many with John.
Ken OBrien Bloomingdale, Il Jul.31.2007 | 12:29 pm mst I know this is probably hard for Bronco Fans to believe because I am a long time Raiders fan, but... I respected Little as one of the premier running backs of his era. He belongs on the HOF!!
Lorraine Pearson Golden, CO Jun.27.2007 | 2:08 pm mst As a Colorado native and a Bronco fan, of course I believe that Mr. Little deserves this honor. His style is a lost art...
Steven Teich, M.D. New York, NY Jun.26.2007 | 9:22 pm mst A great and durable running back whose consistency and achievements have been overlooked. He is certainly worthy of admission to the HOF
Steve Nathan Fayetteville, NY May.12.2007 | 9:25 am mst A truly great player and a gentleman on and off the field. He should be in the HOF!
Clifford Teich, M.D. Bloomingburg, N.Y. Apr.26.2007 | 5:58 pm mst A true gentleman--on and off the field. Mr. Little must come up BIG in the HOF. It would be a sin not to have him elected. He has my full support. He is a legend.
Jim Engelhaupt Charlotte, NC Apr.24.2007 | 5:14 pm mst I have known Floyd since 1965. In 1966, a couple other players and I (none of us played a down that year) "got in hot water with Coach". Floyd heard our side of the story and stood up to Ben for us. We retained our scholarships thanks to him.
I have my degree, thanks to Floyd, who did not have to do what he did at that time. I have never forgotten his help / generosity that year and thank him again.
Floyd has always done things he didn't have to do "to better us all". This is the type of person who deserves to be "Enshrined".

Keith Sylvain Denver, Colorado Apr.12.2007 | 1:32 pm mst Why is this even a question? What Floyd has done for the Broncos, the early NFL and the early AFL is well documented. ANYONE whose ever seen Floyd Little play can see clearly what he meant to this game. This should have happened a long time ago. Denver isn't some regional market team anymore and on that alone you should recognize players for the Broncos that have been there back when this team essentially played from a rodeo stables. Doesn't love of the game carry any value?
Gian Marcantonio Boulder, Colorado Apr.06.2007 | 2:07 pm mst Floyd Little was one of the best ever and deserves to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Had he played for a team in the East, he would have been in the Hall many years ago. Do it now.
Kandy P. Burlington, CO Apr.06.2007 | 1:56 pm mst Floyd Little should have been in the Hall of Fame long ago. His accomplishments speak for themselves. I remember hearing his name as I grew up in Iowa being a Bronco fan. Elect Floyd Little!

Randy Ramsey Garland, Texas Mar.18.2007 | 12:29 am mst I met Floyd in the early 70's. He is a very humble and gracious man. He is as great a man off the field as he was as a player on it. He definitely deserves Hall of Fame honors.
Patrick Scoggin, Endzone Sports Pueblo, CO Mar.16.2007 | 2:54 pm mst Though his on-the-field reign ended some 30 years ago, Floyd still has fans in Bronco County! His career was deserving of HOF induction (which is now long overdue).

FRANK PARRISH LANDENBERG, PA Mar.07.2007 | 1:06 pm mst The Hall of Fame needs players like Floyd....as a former SU teammate,I know he was always humble, approachable and a wonderful role model for younger kids...a true sportsman, he never danced in the end-zone or taunted his rivals..oh yes, the Hall of Fame needs this man..the greatest bow-legged runner in history !!
Don McPherson North Bellmore, New York Mar.07.2007 | 8:19 am mst Floyd is one of the few football heroes of my childhood who was more impressive when I met him in person. He is a true ambassador of the game and a major reason why the game is so successful today!

Bill Wosilius Little Falls, N.J. Mar.06.2007 | 5:06 pm mst Floyd was my teammate, captain and friend as well respected athlete at Syracuse and the pro's. His contributions to pro football and the Denver Broncos as well as his involvement in the Denver community are worthy of his inclusion into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I can't think of any person that deserves this honor more than Floyd. Anyone who has ever had the privilege of playing with Floyd Little has become a better individual as a result of this interaction. It is truly a shame that the people responsible for his nomination and induction have not acknowledged his statistics and contributions to the game.
Dale McIntosh Pine Bush, ny Mar.06.2007 | 4:46 pm mst
Tom Felock Salisbury, nc Mar.06.2007 | 4:00 pm mst Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to meet Floyd Little. However after reading his biography and talking to his great friend, Joe Radivoy, I have no doubt that he is more than deserving to be a part of the Hall of Fame. He epitomizes what a true Hall of Famer should be....a hero and idol to some and a great friend to others. I would want my children to honor such an athlete. Let's honor him the right way.....vote him in!!!!
Yul M.Brown McDonough, GA Mar.06.2007 | 3:01 pm mst Floyd,

Dugald Gillies Arlington, Virginia Mar.06.2007 | 11:46 am mst A great player -- college and pro -- and a great person. He is most deserving of this honor.

Tom Myers Houston, Texas Mar.06.2007 | 9:14 am mst A strong case can be made that Floyd Little might have been the greatest college football player ever. He continued that excellence in the NFL with the Broncos and was a role model for the way a successful man should help his community and his fellow man. As an alumnus of both Syracuse and the NFL I think that his omission from the Hall for this long is a travesty and needs to be corrected immediately.
George Bodine New York, NY Mar.06.2007 | 7:53 am mst
eric wade bowie, maryland Mar.06.2007 | 7:38 am mst His stats alone are the reason he belongs in. But if you add the "intangibles" he brought to a team and to those around him in life, there is no excuse for him not being in the Hall.

Danny Heumann Ann Arbor, Michigan Mar.06.2007 | 7:29 am mst This past Homecoming Weekend at Syracuse University,I met Floyd Little. I'm a paraplegic who uses a wheelchair. I drove with Floyd and his wife after a dinner reception. He helped me in and out of the car. He didn't help me because he had to. He truly wanted to. Furthermore, from the few moments we spent together, I will always remember how he cared about my comfort. He is a tremendous human being who would be a great addition to the Hall of Fame. I hope the voters finally do the right thing.

Dick Murphy Syracuse, New York Mar.05.2007 | 4:37 pm mst Floyd was a gentleman as a freshman at Syracuse in 1963 and he is the same gentleman in 2007. The NFL experience served to deepen his already deep character. At a time when America yearns for heroes, the NFL has a true American hero on their rolls. Floyd will make the NFL proud to claim him in the "Hall" and be their very best model of what America's youth needs to follow. Floyd was really great on the NFL football field but he really scored in life!
Bill Zanieski Weirton, WV Mar.05.2007 | 4:05 pm mst
C. William Mauro Perez Lakewood, Colorado Mar.05.2007 | 3:38 pm mst Without Floyd, Denver would have lost their franchise. Simple as that. He was the only real weapon on a struggling offense before the hashes were moved in. So, in essence you could focus on one player and take away half the field. If that's not Hall of Fame caliber then I don't know what is.

DL Harris Greeley, Colorado Mar.05.2007 | 7:57 am mst Any player who put up yards on those bowed legs should be given automatic HOF entry. His final game was written like a Hollywood script. Floyd took it to the house but can't get in the Hall. The voting members should be ashamed of themselves.

No drugs, no guns, no rap sheet, no BS. Just one damn good human being, who happened to be the best running back of his era. Know anyone else that was a 3 time ALL-American running back in college, when freshmen couldn't play on the varsity ?

Joe Ansay Centennial, CO Mar.05.2007 | 6:27 am mst Floyd not only single handedly built the Broncos into what they later became, but was as dominant a player in the NFL during his playing days. It's a disgrace the voters have shunned him for all these years.
John Bena Cleveland, OH Mar.05.2007 | 6:24 am mst The only thing more embarrassing than the Broncos having only one player in the Hall of Fame is the utter disgrace at Little's ommission. The guy was a dominant player. I live an hour away from the Hall and refuse to go until Little has been recognized.
Brian Lovell Long Island, New York Mar.05.2007 | 6:22 am mst Floyd gave the Broncos their national recorgnition, and was the most versatile weapon of his era of the late 60's and 70's. Floyd led his league or Conference in Rushing on several occasions, was a great Receiver, and was a dangerous Kickoff and Punt Return Man as well. No other player in his era did it all like Floyd.
The exclusion of Floyd Little and Randy Gradishar from the Hall of Fame is a farcical disgrace.
Jeff Clark Coudersport, Pennsylvania Mar.05.2007 | 6:19 am mst Floyd Little put the Broncos on the map. He is more than deserving of the HOF. Come on, voters-get over your anti-Denver bias and correct this oversight.
Chris Albuquerque, New Mexico Mar.05.2007 | 6:13 am mst Floyd Little was John Elway before there was a John Elway. That should tell you all the reasons you need to know why he should be in the Hall of Fame.
Pat killorin Baldwinsville, New York Mar.05.2007 | 6:06 am mst Floyd not only displayed AllPro football standards at Denver at a time when an icon was needed to help develop the NFL,but he also was an All star as a representative of the NFL with the public in his support for charitable organizations and the general public's needs during his time as a Bronco. His fans certainly hope the committee will consider all of this in the decision making process.

Jim Watson North Wales, PA Mar.05.2007 | 4:18 am mst The media and the fans gave Floyd Little the name, "The Franchise." That should give the folks in Canton some indication of his impact in saving the Broncos organization. He was Denver's lone Super Star for many, many years.
Herb Stecker Saylorsburg, Pa. 18353 Mar.05.2007 | 2:38 am mst I have never met a better person or a greater football player. What a great honor to have roomed with him for four years at Syracuse. He is so deserving to be inducted into the Football Hall of Fame
David Casmay Stewartsville, New Jersey Mar.04.2007 | 10:57 pm mst A "BIG" man in a "LITTLE" body. His rushing statistics are only the tip of the iceberg. Behind them is a great human being.

Patrick ONeal Huntingtown, MD Mar.04.2007 | 6:20 pm mst Floyd Little was an all star running back and the fact that there is only one Bronco in the hall of fame is an outrage.

He was the Broncos only star for several years. He did everything including getting beat up on special teams, returning kicks long into his 30s. And somehow he retired as the 7th all-time rusher in NFL history. How is that possible? How is he not in the HOF!!!

Blythe Lundstrom Wilmington, Delaware Mar.03.2007 | 5:56 pm mst My brother grew up a huge Broncos fan. When I asked him why he liked the Broncos he'd say, "Because of Floyd Little. He's the greatest person and greatest running back, but no one knows it because he plays for Denver and they're not very good." The more I read and heard about Floyd, the more our family cheered for the Broncos. Because of Floyd and my brother's love of the Broncos, we named our son Denver!
Diana Sibayan Denver, Colorado Mar.03.2007 | 5:11 pm mst He is the reason I am a Bronco fan!
Gary Thomas Dallas, Texas Mar.03.2007 | 5:01 pm mst I saw lots of HOF backs from Floyd's era . . . Csonka, Simpson, Leroy Kelly, and 44 was as good as any of 'em. Even though he was 5-10 and weighe next to nothin, he was a tough, inside-outside runner with some Barry Sanders moves long before he came around. But the thing I remember most was he never quit. Even when the entire defense knew he was getting the ball, Floyd found someway to get that first down or extra yard.
Scott Phoenix, AZ Mar.03.2007 | 4:28 pm mst HOF is a joke, how is Floyd not in!!!!

It is a shame that all of the RB's that retired with in the top 7 slots of total yards were all inducted, ALL EXCEPT FLOYD. Had Floyd gone to the Jets in the draft before Lou Saban decided to build a FRANCHISE around him Floyd may already be in by now. Floyd was electric returning Punts as well as running the ball. His rushing yards would have been even more had he not split time with the FB as was custom in those days & had he benifited from the hash mark move earlier in his career.
Floyd also was a model individual OFF The field unlike current inductee-elect's.
VOTE FLOYD IN!

Randy Shy Tucson, Arizona Mar.03.2007 | 11:35 am mst I never got to watch him play, but growing up in Colorado my grandparents and mother used to talk about him all the time, he is their favorite Broncos player.

GO BRONCOS!
Derek Koelmel lakewood, colo Mar.03.2007 | 11:17 am mst Floyd should have been in along time ago! dammit! the good old boys club in canton are a joke keeping out guys like floyd and letting in morons like michael irvin.
Brian Pelzer Estherville, Iowa Mar.03.2007 | 11:08 am mst even tho he came before my time, there has been a travesty in the HOF for decades.

Phil Averett Clemmons , North Carolina Mar.03.2007 | 10:55 am mst The Cowboys had their Roger Staubachs and Bob Lillys, the Steelers their Terry Bradshaw, Franco Harris and Mean Joe Greenes. In Denver we had Floyd Little. The Franchise was as good as any player of that era, and the most complete back I ever saw. Floyd should have been a slam-dunk HOFer a long time ago. He's long overdue.
JT Hoffman Dubois, Wyoming Mar.03.2007 | 10:43 am mst Thanks to Floyd Little for doing so much for our favorite team. Without Little in the HOF it is nothing but a joke.
Joseph Griego Mar.03.2007 | 8:53 am mst The original "franchise" player before Elway. Floyd Little saved the Denver Broncos from extinction and was a premier back during the days of the original AFL. Long over due for recognition by the HOF.

Gregg Marvel West Chester, PA Mar.03.2007 | 6:56 am mst I grew up a Raiders fan in the 1970s. But the one guy we always had to worry about was Floyd Little. I just remember there wasn't anything the guy couldn't do. He'd run all over us. Catch the ball over the middle and elude the likes of Jack Tatum. Return punts and kickoffs (how many guys do that now!) and he even threw a TD pass against us. We usually beat the Broncos because Floyd was all they had. But, boy, we had our hands full every time because of #44.
Tom Mackie Princeton, NJ Mar.03.2007 | 6:01 am mst If there was no Floyd Little, the Denver Broncos would have become the Chicago Broncos or Birmingham Broncos in 1967. As the first #1 to ever sign with the Broncos his impact on and off the field have made the Broncos the marquee franchise it is today. As someone who retired as the 7th all-time rusher, despite playing on a string of poor teams, Floyd is a true legend of the game. I had the privilege to co-write "Floyd Little's Tales from the Broncos Sidelines" with him and he is truly an uncommon man.

Lloyd Jackson Bayville, New Jersey Mar.03.2007 | 5:38 am mst Not only was Floyd Little a Hall of Famer on the field, with the stats to securely back that up, he is also a Hall of Famer in life. Having met him through my Uncle, Joe Radivoy who played with Floyd at Syracuse, at the #44 retirement game at SU, I can attest to this man's humbleness, graciousness and humility. He made time for everyone and the storeies of what he has done for every community he has been a part of are never ending. Bring this travesty to an end. ELECT FLOYD LITTLE TO THE HALL...there couldn't be a more deserving candidate!!
STEVEN EWING ATLANTA, GEORGIA Mar.03.2007 | 5:36 am mst I KNOW FLOYD AS MY FRIEND AND AS "JUST A GREAT MAN" HUMBLE YET CONFIDENT FLOYD LITTLE HAS INSPIRED PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD AND LIVE HIS LIFE AFTER FOOTBALL "AS A WINNER" REGARDLESS OF FAME! THIS IS A "NO BRAINER"
Ray Hogan New York Mar.03.2007 | 4:48 am mst I'm never going back to the Hall Of Fame again until they put Floyd Little in there. He more than deserves it.
James Casey O'Brien Seattle, WA Mar.03.2007 | 3:58 am mst Little was literally "The Franchise." As the late Lamar Hunt said, the Broncos would've left Denver in the late 60s if not for Floyd Little. The entire game of football is better for the Broncos, and Floyd Little.
Mimi Gumina Bloomingburg, New York Mar.02.2007 | 5:12 pm mst After having met Floyd and after hearing from others about his many contributions to football and society in general, I would like to add my support to this worthwhile effort.

Roberto Marcantonio Broomfield, Colorado Dec.19.2006 | 2:56 pm mst Floyd: I may have never seen you play, but what you accomplished on the field is no fluke! All of us Broncos fans and football fans alike can agree that you only deserve what is long overdue -- enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Can't wait until that great day comes!
