17 Finalists for Hall of Fame Named
OK, this is where the Hall of Fame talk gets serious, now that we're down to the 17 finalists.
Here's the list: Cris Carter, Dermontti Dawson, Richard Dent, Russ Grimm, Bob Hayes, Claude Humphrey, Cortez Kennedy, Bob Kuechenberg, Randall McDaniel, John Randle, Andre Reed, Shannon Sharpe, Bruce Smith, Derrick Thomas, Rod Woodson -- plus, in the contributor category, Bills owner Ralph Wilson and former commissioner Paul Tagliabue.
I think out of these guys, I feel strongest about Bruce Smith, Shannon Sharpe, Rod Woodson, and Dermontti Dawson. Also, I mean, Bob Hayes was good, but haven't there been enough guys from those 70's Cowboys put in the HOF, and not enough offensive guards like Grimm, Kuechenberg, and McDaniel?
