The Pro Football Hall of Fame has announced 89 people on the preliminary ballot. I'm curious to hear everyone's votes, but my strongest opinion is that it's long past time for Fritz Pollard to get the recognition he deserves. My other yes votes would probably go to Steve Young, Dan Marino, Michael Irvin, and Joe Jacoby. And I could make a case for Paul Tagliabue, who has done a good job keeping labor peace and acted as a strong leader after 9/11. I consider Art Monk, Derrick Thomas, and Charles Haley to be near misses. Any arguments?
How iffy is the 2017 quarterback class? Even our highest-rated prospect has us questioning the numbers. While the top of the draft is full of risky picks, though, we might have found a solid mid-round sleeper.
