His teammate, Tony Banfield thinks so. After posting the hall of fame comparisons yesterday, I awoke to the above email from former AFL Houston Oiler, Tony Banfield. I would love to hear from Willie Brown, as Tony said, and ask him for his thoughts on Charlie Hennigan. I know Brown had some fantastic battles with lance Alworth. Does he feel that Hennigan is HoF-worthy? A lot of fans and former AFL’ers do!
Does Charlie Hennigan belong in the Hall of Fame?
