Congrats, JO!

It's a great class (as usual) but he should he get in this year. It's just sad WRs like Carter and Brown have been waiting forever and the idiots voting continue to snub Charles Haley.

Allen, Carter, Ogden, Strahan, and Brown are my guesses. Wish Modell could go but he is not kosher in a room full of sports politicians.

It truly baffles me. And I don't think he's ever been a finalist again since the year after we won the SB.
I agree with your list but I think one of them (probably Carter or Brown) will be left out for Debartolo.

Congrats to both JO and Art! JO is a lock, in my opinion.

Let's hope this year's tragedy finally puts some of those hard-feelings to bed and Art can get the honor he deserves. JO is a lock.
This is turning out to be an interesting year if anybody believes in "destiny" (I wish I did). We battle the adversity early in the season to beat New England, plagued with injuries but hold on strong to win the division for only the third time in franchise history, Ray announces his retirement and inspires the team to win another playoff game, our first draft pick is going into the Hall of Fame, our original owner has a shot to go in, and Joe had a kid this year. Anybody else notice how every Super Bowl QB seems to be holding his newborn as the confetti falls?
The more I hear about the weather, the better I feel about Denver. And, if we get past Denver, there's no way we're getting stopped before we hold that trophy. Let's send Ray out right.

Yeah, they aren't forgiven. What they did to Art Modell because of one man's grudge and big mouth is ridiculous. The rest of those men knew exactly what Modell meant to the NFL and how he was instrumental in it becoming as popular as it is today. They should always hang their heads in shame.

The first testicular guard, the "Cup" was used in hockey in 1874. The first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took men 100 years to realize their brain was also important.

Arthur Model was a Legendary Owner and JO was the 1st pick and nothing shy of a film study left tackle..

It's great that both are finalists but its really ashame that voters snubbed Art Modell a football pioneer for years because of the Cleveland move, he should have been inducted while he was alive rather than after death.
