On Thursday evening, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced the 15 finalists for the 2019 class. Ed Reed, Tony Gonzalez, and Champ Bailey were obvious first-ballot choices to reach this point. Richard Seymour is a finalist for the first time. Head coach Tom Flores also made the cut on his final ballot while linebacker Karl Mecklenburg did not. Eleven of the 15 finalists I predicted in August made the cut.
I got 11/15 HOF finalists right.
1. I still don't see how Coryell is eligible (last coached 1986)
2. Flores? I wouldn't bother voting him over a Barber or Holt.
3. Still like my 5 picks to get it: Reed, Champ, Gonzalez, Boselli, Hutchinson pic.twitter.com/sXRW5N4Fn9
