    The Pro Football Hall of Fame is tomorrrow....any opinions?

    I'd say Reggie, Moon, Thurman, Aikman, Derrick Thomas, Madden...

    I don't think Warren Moon or Thurman Thomas will make it. They were good, but I don't think they were first-ballot HOF good. Derrick Thomas might, but I doubt it.

    I'll go with Reggie White, Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, John Madden and

    Umm...

    Uhh...


    L.C. Greenwood or Rayfield Wright.

    I'm a big Thurman Thomas fan so I have my fingers crossed...as for Irvin I think he blew his shot this year when he/his brother/his friend, whoever had whatever they shouldn't have had in his car. The first two are locks...Madden's a lock...after that who knows with these voters.

    I have a feeling that Warren Moon will become the Art Monk of quarterbacks when it comes to getting into the HOF. If Bernie's not in it...

    I think Weekend At Bernie's is a great movie too but I don't remember him playing any football but who knows with that dead bastard.

    How does any of that relate to what he did ON the field?? It's insane.

    I don't think Madden is a lock - and doesn't even deserve to be in there at least in the coaching angle. As a broadcaster yes.

    I had read where it was said when they have the meeting and started debating all of the people they are not allowed to discuss any off the feild stuff no matter how big it was. in other words if OJ wasn't in the hall already, he would still be eligible.

    How can you say Madden doesn't deserve to be in there as a coach? He was one of the most successful of all time! It is a crock that he isn't already there. Look at the stats over his 10-year career:

    Best regular season winning percentage of all time: 103-32-7 (.750)
    2nd best overall winning percentage of all time: 112-39-7 (.739)
    Never had a losing season
    6 seasons with 10 or more wins (back when they only played 14 games)
    Seven divisional titles
    Super Bowl XI Championship

    That's surprising...you'd think they'd take in account major off field issues. I've never understood the voting for the Pro HOF anyway....deserving guys wait long stretches all the time and a lot of positions are ignored altogether.

    Wow. I was completely wrong about Moon.

    EDIT: I got rid of the SI link for the official HOF link.

    I'm not sure what the voters are thinking anymore. Carson goes in this time but they leave off Irvin and Thomas. One of the articles on the HOF's site did state that voters are directed to look at off field incidents when casting their votes.

    Derrick Thomas was the best player left off IMO. He was absolutely dominant during the 90s, and from what I remember, showed no signs of stopping at the time of his young death.

    Good to see Reggie get in.

    Coaching for a total of 10 years with 1 title isn't that impressive. His lack of longevity will hurt him.

    Apparently not.
