Obligatory Hall of Fame Post
The preliminary list for next year has been announced
. A lot of these guys will not be on the final (15-man) ballot. My take:
Will be inducted immediately: Jerry Rice, Emmitt Smith. These guys are what the Hall of Fame is all about.
Probably will make it this year: Cris Carter, Shannon Sharpe, Gary Anderson.
Really should make it eventually but it will take time: Aeneas Williams, Kenny Anderson, John Randle, Andre Reed, Cortez Kennedy, Richard Dent.
First time on the ballot but no real chance: Eddie George, Rich Gannon.
BTW, one stat that you may not have heard about the astonishing Jerry Rice, one of my favorite players of all time. Did you know that he caught over 440 NFL passes
before he fumbled for the first time and over 520 passes before he fumbled and the opposition recovered it?
