Well gang, the Hall of Fame Class of 2011 was announced and with a group this loaded it is hard to say there were any surprises or snubs.
Our top two ranked football players, #1 Marshall Faulk & #2 Deion Sanders were inducted on their first year of eligibility. Our #4 candidate, Shannon Sharpe was also selected making us wonder who will have the most colorful speech; Sanders or Sharpe.
Our Number #10 Selection, Richard Dent will enter as the star this year's class as the star on the defensive side of the ball. We are certain that Bears fans everywhere are celebrating this selection.
Rounding out the group are Les Richter, Chris Hanburger & the warranted induction of NFL Films Legend, Ed Sabol.
Where we at Notinhalloffame were surpised about, was the exclusion of Willie Roaf, who was our Number #5 selection, though will likely see entry in the next couple of years. We also erroniously thought that two Running Backs would gain entry, but Curtis Martin (#6) and Jerome Bettis (#14) both failed to get inducted on both their first year of eligibility.
No Wide Receivers entered the Hall this year as the illustrious group of Cris Carter, Tim Brown & Andre Reed did not get in. Charles Haley, Dermonti Dawson & Cortez Kennedy were also not selected.
What do you think, did the Hall get it right?
