Probably the only guy who had better hands than Jerry Rice too, should be in the HOF just for being better than Jerry at anything IMO. Carter was better than Irvin, Tim Brown, and Andre Reed. Better than Largent or anyone not named Jerry Rice who is in the hall. At this point it almost warrants an investigation. It's utterly absurd.
Brown and Reed aren't in either.
Finalists for this year's Hall of Fame:
Ed DeBartolo Jr
Allen is a 1st ballot offensive lineman, but I admit bias here (Ogden is too btw). He's one of the greatest ever, top 10 (Ogden too btw). Allen, and Ogden who was also as dominant as can be, probably both wait at least a year.
Of the WRs, how many will they induct? Carter, Reed, and Brown all deserve it. If I had to pick one, I'd go Carter. Reed and Brown belong though.
Gonna guess Bettis and Carter make it in this year. Really not sure about anyone else. Or maybe let Bettis wait a year, and induct two WRs. Reed and Carter. Reed's waited the longest.
I'd vote Allen, Ogden, Carter, Bettis, Reed. I think the max is 5, but I've forgotten the rules. Ah, no defense. Strahan and Sapp are 1st time eligible, and while great, they aren't 1st ballot players. Williams was a solid CB, and probably should be in, but I don't think he was as great as the offensive players I got here. Haley and Greene were dominant for a few years, and Haley has FIVE SB rings. Still don't think they were as great as the guys I listed. This is why Allen and Ogden probably don't get in. They most likely will induct a defensive player, coach, or owner.
