Paymeaton Manning will be first ballot... Woodson should be as well...

Patriots in Blue

who's deserving of enshrinement from that list?

In the Starting Line-Up
from the new nominees? not much beyond those two?

not sure D'Brick is there, Mankins had the rep, but not sure he quite had the career

we could make the Welker case, but......

not much else imho

If welker spent the rest of his career in NE he'd have a strong case...

Would like to see ben coates, Rodney and the big Sey get a knock from carl david baker...willie mac & Bru too but I don't think they will ever get in...

Lock this year: Fivehead, Woodson
Good shot this year: Seymour. Was in top 10 last year so I think he goes.
Probably eventually but not this year: Taylor, Dillon, McGinest, Coates
Never: Welker, Mayo, Samuel, Bruschi, Bledsoe, Harrison, Mankins, Steven Jackson

I think Harrison has a PED bust problem and that keeps him out. Would love to see Drew get in but I can't see an argument for it.

I'm sorry but there's no way Bettis should have made the HOF. He played on way better teams for most of his career while Dillon put up better numbers per the average number of games and carries and still almost put up the same volume numbers. But the media like the fraud. Let's not forget his fumble against Indy that almost gave that game away. My favorite Lawyer Milloy memory is him mimicking the bus's move after destroying him for no gain. Bettis got up to whine and Lawyer got in his face.

In the Starting Line-Up
Manning and Woodson are locks.

Megatron belongs in the HOF. For a short period he was a dominant a WR as we've ever seen. I bet they make him wait a couple of years.

Of the remaining first years, I think Jared Allen will eventually get in - 12th all time in sacks, 3rd all time in tackles for loss, 22nd all time in forced fumbles, 4 time all pro - but the committee seems to make pass rushers wait unless they are generational talents. Other than that, Mankins could be a dark horse, eventually, once the HOF realized it needs more Patriots, but there are more deserving OL waiting in line.

Third String But Playing on Special Teams

My predictions, based on the assumption that they'll elect 5 players and one "contributor."

• I agree that Manning and Woodson are locks.

• I think Seymour has a great chance, as a finalist last year, I think there will be some sentiment that a team that won championships in 3 of 4 years "should" have a good representation in the HOF. I think he is certainly as deserving as, say, Cortez Kennedy, and more than Warren Crapp ever was.

• I think Reggie Wayne has a great chance also, again a finalist last year, high profile guy, the Colts seem to have a following among the HOF voters.

• One of either Faneca or Zach Thomas.

• One of either Tom Flores or Don Coryell as contributors. Flores I think is the only Super Bowl era coach with two championships who isn't in, and given the "environment" this year his being one of the first Latino head coaches and the first Latino or African-American coach to win a Super Bowl may help his case. His W-L record isn't stellar. Coryell has a great W-L record but zero championships, but I think he's got a chance.

It wouldn't surprise me if Kraft was elected; I would dread listening to that speech but I think he is deserving.

Speaking of the HoF, I thought it was a touching moment at halftime last night when they told Joe Buck he was going. They video tribute where they talked a bit about his dad was very nice.

<queue the "Joe Buck sucks" retorts>

if Reggie Wayne gets in this year, he will be riding on the coat tails of the Manning selection

RKK is deserving ... think they might let him sit a years or two more ... just adds more time between his eventual enshrinement and his little escapades in south florida
 

Pape

2nd Team Getting Their First Start
I think he's deserving but I don't see him getting in. He has a PED bust on his resume.
ya know, the Fivehead was taking the very same drug, HGH, to help his recovery from neck surgery ... he just had it sent to his house under his wifes name... wonder if thats going to get brought up in the discussion of his merits
