“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.
