  • John's officially a finalist.....

    I'll go out on a limb and say John will make it in. hehe....but is Zimmerman a lock?

    CANTON, Ohio -- Running back Barry Sanders and quarterback John Elway, both first-year eligible candidates, head the list of 15 finalists for election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2004.

    The Hall of Fame's Board of Selectors will meet again in Houston, Texas, the day before the Super Bowl -- Jan. 31 -- to elect the 2004 inductees. In order to be elected, a finalist must receive a minimum positive vote of 80 percent.

    Elway played his entire career with the Denver Broncos, capturing Super Bowl championships in his final two seasons. Meanwhile, Sanders spent all of his career with the Detroit Lions and currently sits third on the all-time rushing list with 15,269 yards.

    The other finalists announced Wednesday were wide receivers Art Monk and Bob Hayes; defensive ends Richard Dent, Carl Eller and Jim Marshall; linebacker Harry Carson; guard Bob Kuechenberg; safety Cliff Harris; cornerback Lester Hayes; tackles Bob Brown and Gary Zimmerman; tackle Rayfield Wright; and general manager/administrator George Young.

    Carson, a former New York Giants linebacker, and Young are automatic finalists after finishing in the top six of the voting last year.

    A player needs to be retired for at least five years to be eligible for Hall of Fame consideration. Non-players have no mandatory retirement period, but coaches must be done working before becoming eligible.

    After a 2003 class of running back Marcus Allen, defensive end Elvin Bethea, guard Joe DeLamielleure, wide receiver James Lofton and coach Hank Stram, there are currently 221 members of the Hall of Fame.

    No Gradishar! I'm sure it has been discussed here before but is it too late? Can he still get in next year or what? Will he ever get in,because he certainly deserves it.

      I have a feeling Zimmerman will get in also, it would be the perfect to Elways inception. The only thing better would be for Gradishar to get into the Hall with them.

        Sprite? Good. You mind if I have some of your tasty beverage to wash this down with?

                The main reason I don't like the Bronco's is because every time I see their logo it reminds me of my drunk boyfriend who used to write his name in the snow with his urine then belch the letters of Elway's name----- Sandra Bernhard 1993
