The Super Bowl is tomorrow and for Hall of Fame purposes this means one thing to us. The Pro Football Hall of Fame has announced the latest class to their prestigious institution.
As expected first year eligible Quarterback, Brett Favre, has been chosen. A Super Bowl Champion with the Green Bay Packers, Favre set numerous passing records and for years was the most recognizable player in the NFL. Favre is a three time league MVP.
The Offensive Line has seen another one of their fraternity chosen with former St. Louis Ram, Orlando Pace. Pace is also a Super Bowl Champion and was chosen for seven consecutive Pro Bowls.
The Indianapolis Colts will be well represented. Wide Receiver, Marvin Harrison, who entered his third year of eligibility, has been chosen. Harrison was a thirteen year veteran, all with Indianapolis. He is an eight time Pro Bowl Selection and a Super Bowl Champion with over 13,000 Yards Receiving.
Harrison’s Super Bowl winning coach, Tony Dungy has also been chosen. Dungy has a coaching record of 139 and 69 and also has a Super Bowl Ring as a Defensive Back with the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 1970’s. He is currently a popular studio announcer for NBC’s National Football League Sunday Night telecasts.
Kevin Greene, one of the most feared pass rushers of all time, has also been chosen. Greene finished his career with 160 Sacks, a number that puts him third all-time in that category.
Both Senior Nominees, Quarterback, Ken Stabler and Offensive Guard, Dick Stanfel have also been chosen.
The home of Super Bowl 50, San Francisco, will see their popular former owner, Edward DeBartolo Jr. also inducted. DeBartolo Jr. owned the San Francisco 49ers for twenty-three seasons with the team capturing five Super Bowl during that tenure.
Morten Andersen, Steve Atwater, Don Coryell, Terrell Davis, Alan Faneca, Joe Jacoby, John Lynch, Edgerrin James, Terrell Owens and Kurt Warner were not chosen this year.
We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate this latest class, and we will begin work immediately on the revision of our Football List. Look for that next month!
