Feels like yesterday....PIT drafted him and he was overwhelmed as a rookie and looked like a potential bust his first year.

He's my poster child for not every guy, much less first round draft pick easily makes the transition to the NFL in year 1. Patience always the first year.

I think it would be cool to see both Holt and Bruce inducted at the same time.

Warner, Faulk, Holt, Bruce, Pace...what a team!

Steve Tasker,

Best special teams player ever, punt gunner, punt blocker, great on kick coverage, flipped games on their head regularly playing a role you have never see players do that in, not just the best in his era, the best ever. Guy deserves to be in

Just read that Alex Karras is being inducted... I figured he was in long ago. What has changed in the last 20 years that he is suddenly HOF material? Not that I have any issue with Karras being inducted just want to know why it didn't happen sooner

On a similar note.. I know the guy was a PITA but there was a top 100 WR's all time and TO was not on it.. How's that make any kind of sense? He's arguably in the top 20...

It’s a shame that Jim Plunkett isn’t a name on a list somewhere.

I thought everyone was being announced today but it was just the centennial selections. I opened the poll back up if anyone still wants to vote.

Unfortunate that Tommy Nobis continues to be snubbed. Even more unfortunate is that even if he does get in some day, he won't be there to enjoy it.

I second your Tommy Nobis nomination.
Likely the best player/man not in the HOF.
People should read up on him.

He was 1 of them up for selection by the seniors or whatever they call it. Didn't make it. He was pretty pissed about it too.
