2013 Hall of Fame Class

Announcement coming shortly on NFL Network.

Mike Sando, ESPN.com ‏@espn_nfcwest
Reduction from 15 to 10 HOF finalists eliminated Art Modell, Eddie DeBartolo Jr, Will Shields, Tim Brown and Kevin Greene. Tough calls.

More deserved to make it in, but I think they got the right guys if you limit it.

I agree. Don't know who the first timers are next year but I'm guessing Strahan should get in.

Sapp was better than Strahan, so that's fine.


We're also going to get some great speeches.


Expecting HOF Game to be Minnesota v. Tampa Bay

Gratz to my man Sapp! Was sorry that DeBartolo did not make it as a contributer. A panelist on NFL Network suggested a separate category for them & I tend to agree.

How utterly laughable that Sapp is on that list instead of Strahan.

Two linemen? Surprising.

I wonder how much Brown shooting his mouth off helped out Carter.

Carter is 8th Ohio State football player elected to Pro Football Hall of Fame. I believe he's 10th member w/ OSU ties (Paul Brown, Ed Sabol)

DeBartolo should be there.

Congrats to Carter, Sapp, and Parcells.

A) I don't think so. Both were great players. A third would have surprised me.

B) Probably just enough

Carter getting in should open the door for Reed next year, unless Bruce or someone is eligible. The fact that Reed survived further than Brown seems to hint he is the next of that WR trio to get in, followed by Brown after that.

At least they are putting a WR in...because when Bruce, Harrison, Holt, etc. become eligible there's gonna be a huge backlog.

That's going to get dicey considering the pinball numbers QB's put up now.

Great to see Carter get in. About time.

Does Warren Sapp's HOF induction get him out of bankruptcy?

WR gets jammed up again next year with Harrison coming up.


Allen, Ogden, Sapp and Parcells are all well-deserved too. Although I thought Bettis would get in over Parcells.

Story about Culp, the Broncos drafted him in the 2nd round and tried to turn him into a Guard. Of course it was a disaster. This was a failure and in the same preseason they traded him to the Chiefs for a 4th and he goes on to stay on the Dline and make the HOF.
