    My Favorites are Cris Carter & Bill Parcells. I hope this is the year for Cris. Bro Man Balled for the Vikings and will get his chance. Shame, Shame that he is not in already. I have sense the popularity contest factor based on Carter's treatment of media. Yes, Oh Yes---Go Bucks!!

    Bill Parcells has inspired me with his attitude & fearless demeanor in the game. You HAVE to be to coach Football in the NFL. He's been a winner and taken more teams to the playoffs than any other coach. Congrats to Phil McConkey's former coach for getting a step closer to getting that Hall Call.

    I'd like to see Cortez Kennedy make it in. Underappreciated but very very good.

    I'm really interested to see what the HOF is going to decide to do about this growing glut of wide receivers in the coming years. In addition to Carter, Reed, and Brown they're going to have to deal with Harrison, Bruce, McCardell, Owens, Moss, Holt, etc.

    LOL YES! That's a good point that Jim Trotter of SI mentioned on Twitter about how future classes will be loaded. I feel we can argue that the Running Back position will face the same kinda situation.

    Like Sander said, I would like to see Cortez Kennedy get in too. Same with Wille Roaf. Two guys I feel are some of the most underrated of their generation simply because they played in the most unglamorous positions and weren't on big name teams.

    I'm partial to Dermontti Dawson, and would prefer he get in prior to the other Steelers on the board. Also Ed DeBartolo, Cortez Kennedy, Willie Roaf, and Cris Carter. Interesting names, but not much sizzle to this class compared with others of recent years. I'm not sure there's a guaranteed slam dunk on the list this year as far as this specific class is concerned. Many will probably think that plays to the receivers benefit, but I think only Carter gets in. This class could benefit the big guys. I could easily see three of Kennedy, Roaf, Dawson, and Will Shields getting in, with Kennedy the most likely of those for this year.

    Outside of the obvious issues at WR that are going to only get worse..I find the RB situation more interesting. In this potential class you have Bettis and Martin. Martin by far was much more consistent, averaging over 300 touches every year except the 2 which he started less tehn 13 games due to injury; is 3rd in career touches and 4th in career Rush yds; 4.0 yds/att and top 4 rushing yards in a season 4 times; he was very consistent his entire career. Bettis 5th in touches and 5th in yards; 3.9 yds/att, top 4 rushing yards 2, and was not teh starter for 3 years of his career where he amassed some of the "HoF" numbers, 22 tds and approx. 1,200 yds.

    I don't think both get in this year...and I would go MArtin over Bettis.
