Last month, regular contributor, Spheniscus and I debated the Hall of Fame merits of those who were on the Baseball Hall of Fame ballot. Now that the Baseball Hall of Fame Class of 2016 has announced their class has done the same.  We were hopeful to do this prior to the announcement of the actual inductees, but life, as it often does simply got in the way! Saying that, we felt it was worth our time to take a look at the 2016 Nominees and debate whether they should have gotten in (or not) and look to the future of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Here we are in the National Football League playoffs but for us that it means it is time to discuss the potential class of the 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame.  The Finalists have been announced, and along with regular contributor, Spheniscus, we will go back and forth with each candidate and openly debate as to which player would be a worthy Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee. Committee Chairman: Spheniscus, in my mind, Alan Faneca should have been inducted last year.

Kevin Mawae 2017 HOF Debate http://www.notinhalloffame.com/blogs/hall-of-fame-debates/8196-kevin-mawae-2017-hof-debate http://www.notinhalloffame.com/blogs/hall-of-fame-debates/8196-kevin-mawae-2017-hof-debate Here we are in the National Football League playoffs but for us that it means it is time to discuss the potential class of the 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame.  The Finalists have been announced, and along with regular contributor, Spheniscus, we will go back and forth with each candidate and openly debate as to which player would be a worthy Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee. Committee Chairman: Spheniscus, here is one I really like in Kevin Mawae, but I wonder if I am in the minority here.  I think what works against him is the teams he played for were not high profile or often any good.  He played for Seattle for four years where they were mediocre and the Titans, who while good, is not a team who network executives wanted to put in the night game.  He did have a great run in the middle of his career with some good Jets teams, but even though we are talking about New York City, isn’t that really the home of the Giants?]]> [email protected] (Committee Chairman) Hall of Fame Debates Sat, 04 Feb 2017 07:59:47 +0000 The Pro Football Semi-Finalists Are Announced. http://www.notinhalloffame.com/home/news/6325-the-pro-football-semi-finalists-are-announced http://www.notinhalloffame.com/home/news/6325-the-pro-football-semi-finalists-are-announced The Pro Football Semi-Finalists Are Announced.

The 2016 Pro Football HOF Finalists are out http://www.notinhalloffame.com/home/news/6524-the-2016-pro-football-hof-finalists-are-out http://www.notinhalloffame.com/home/news/6524-the-2016-pro-football-hof-finalists-are-out The 2016 Pro Football HOF Finalists are out
“Tis the season to talk about Hall of Fames isn’t it? The Pro Football Hall of Fame has announced their Finalists, and there is no major surprise, which is usually the norm. The headliner for most people (and for us) is former Quarterback, Brett Favre who two months ago had his number retired by the Green Bay Packers.  Favre is entering his first year of eligibility and is ranked #1 by us. Favre is not the only first year eligible player to make the list of Finalists as Wide Receiver, Terrell Owens and Offensive Guard, Alan Faneca have also made the cut.  They are ranked and #7 and #5 respectively on our Notinhalloffame football list. The remaining Finalists (with their Notinhalloffame rank in parenthesis) are Steve Atwater (#19), Don Coryell, Terrell Davis (#21), Tony Dungy, Kevin Greene (#37), Marvin Harrison (#3), Joe Jacoby (#62), Edgerrin James (#17), John Lynch (#57), Orlando Pace (#15) and Kurt Warner (#28). This group joins the automatic Senior Finalists, Ken Stabler (#6) and Dick Stanfel (#30), along with Contributing Finalist, Eddie DeBartolo Jr. To enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame must receive 80 percent of the votes.  A maximum of eight inductees can be chosen per year. Like the Baseball Hall of Fame, We will be debating each Pro Football Finalist.

Normally, the Pro Football Hall of Fame is relatively easy to forecast as they don’t normally have surprises, but with this year’s class, we are a little befuddles with some of this year’s selections, or rather this year’s snubs. Let’s start with who got in.

Offensive linemen may be the most respected in football, but they are from the most famous.  One of the few exceptions to that rule was the fames “Hogs” who patrolled the front line of the Washington Redskins in the 1980’s.
