    Randy Gradishar belongs in the HoF. I hope he gets in this time but I'm not holding my breath.

    Thats cool. I just see them making it. Especially Moon, Monk, and Thomas. Of the few .. I would say Reed is the furthest. But... personally.. I think they are all worthy. Just as the Steelers had so many from their Super Bowl years go.

They want to look at football stats like you do baseball stats. Art's presence and career was more than just "stats" on a piece of paper.

    Perhaps but who do you think will get pushed off to get him on there? I don't see it happening.

    I think the HOF selection is broken. There is way too much concern over honoring "lifetime achievement" type awardees and with the limited slots, a lot of HOF quality players get passed over. HOF inductees need to be selected based on their playing careers only with very rarely a coach and that's it. The HOF isn't a place for administrators, owners, or anyone else that doesn't play the game.

    Madden
    Aikman
    White
    and Modell

    It seriously sorry group with only White being true HOFer and he won't even be there.

    Aikman was the leader of three super bowl teams. That qualifies for the hall of fame. Derrick Thomas should be on this list without question.

    Gradishar should go now. Zimmerman still has time.

    I can't believe we only have one Bronco in the HoF, we should have more at this point

    If Derrick Thomas does not get in, that is the biggest garbage ever. Yes he was a cheif, but he was a legend. 2 games of at least 6 sacks is unreal. He holds the record with seven sacks in a single game and is argueably the best pass rushing LB after LT.

    Frankly, I would have to agree...

    Here's the press release.

    Gradishar has to get in.

    Atwater should eventualy get his. Not that he had the blistering numbers, or more noteriety than others. It's for the great moments (ok hits) that he placed in NFL History.

    Aikman and White are gaurenteed imo.

    Reed, Thurman Thomas, Warren Moon and Monk, although all had good careers, aren't going to make it.

    Zimmerman should have been in years ago, and I would like to see him finally make it.

    Gradishar I like obvisously, but I don't think he'll make it.

    Irvin I think has a chance.

    Lastly, I hope to high heaven that Art Modell never gets in. I have no respect for the guy after what he did to the Browns.
    Reed, Thurman Thomas, and Warren Moon will definatly get in. Eventually. Art Monk SHOULD get in. The people that say "no" are the ones that look at stats and stats only. They want to look at football stats like you do baseball stats. Art's presence and career was more than just "stats" on a piece of paper.
