  • Preliminary List for the 2010 Hall of Fame

    Story:

    http://www.profootballhof.com/enshri...class-of-2010/

    The List:

    http://www.profootballhof.com/enshri...--by-position/

    Analysis:

    Returning finalists from 2009:

    Cris Carter
    Dermontti Dawson
    Richard Dent
    Russ Grimm
    Cortez Kennedy
    John Randle
    Andre Reed
    Shannon Sharpe
    Paul Tagliabue

    Its likely these nine names will return to the Final 15 (with the two seniors LeBeau and Little making it 17).


    The following got as far as the Last 25 last year and will be looking to take the next step into the Final 15:

    Roger Craig
    Terrell Davis
    Chris Doleman
    Kevin Greene
    Ray Guy
    Charles Haley
    Art Modell
    Ken Stabler
    Steve Tasker

    Notable first time nominees:

    Stone cold 1st ballot locks:
    Jerry Rice
    Emmitt Smith

    Will get in eventually but will have to wait:
    Tim Brown
    Aeneas Williams

    * There are 22 names mentioned above. All 22 of them will probably make the semi final list of 25. However with some very strong first time nominees it will be very tough for those players listed from Craig to Tasker to crack the Final 15. In fact there may only be room for two of them if A.Williams makes it.

    * As for the Class of 2010 - Rice and Emmitt will instantly snap up two of the available five spots for the modern era candidates. Of the remaining three spots at least one of them will likely be a defender as voters like to have positional variety in each class. That's good news for the likes of Dent.

    Dawson then Grimm appear to be 'next in line' among the OL. Dent, Kennedy and Randle the same for the DL. Carter should be there already imo but will voters be reluctant to put in two WRs together? Shannon Sharpe will make it soon enough but not this year. With Rice, Carter, Reed, Sharpe and now Tim Brown up for election I can't see more than two pass catchers getting elected and if there are two it should be Rice (obviously) and Carter.

    My Modern Era Class of 2010:

    Rice
    Emmitt
    Dent
    Carter
    Dawson

    LeBeau and Little are voted on separately and can make the Class a max of 7.

    Your thoughts?

    Tez should make it but he played in South Alaska on some really really bad teams, so he'll probly get overlooked again.

      Rice is the biggest lock to make it in forever.

        Shannon Sharpe deserved to be first ballot, one of the best TE's ever. 9 Pro Bowls and 3 Super Bowl rings, come on now.

          How in the heck Charles Haley is not in the HOF is the biggest mystery to me.

          Dermotti Dawson is going to have to wait. Shannon Sharpe and Roger Craig should be finalists, IMO

            I agree, Defensive Player of the Year on a 2-14 team...in Seattle...how dominant is that?

              Rice, Smith, Carter and Sharpe should be locks. That leaves 1 opening right?

                You would think, but I thought Carter was a lock in his first year of eligibility. I was shocked when he still didn't get in in his second year.

                I like Art Monk and thought he should have been in the Hall long before, but head to head, if one receiver was to get in that year, there's no way Monk should have went in over Carter.

                  Sharpe is not a lock, if he was, he'd already be in there.

                  I like the OP. Good job.

                    I think three things hurt Carter.

                    1) He's a D-bag. Although this didn't hurt Michael Irvin at all, so go figure.

                    2) He wasn't the complete package at WR, which likely led some people to believe he shouldn't be 1st ballot.

                    3) He never played an important game in his life. This shouldn't matter as much for WR, but it doesn't help that the teams he was on were known for choking in the playoffs.

                      Rickey Jackson should have been in like 6 to 8 years ago. He has better stats than at least half, if not more than half of the people at his position.

                      I hope Tags gets in. He's a huge reason we're still in N.O.

                        Irvin wasn't a d bag he just made a lot of bad decisions in his personal life but nobody worked harder and his teammates universally loved and respected him

                          Irvin just was on ESPN all the time proclaiming he should be in Canton 24-7. Once he got in he was fired. Hahah! I swear the make up artist did a great job dusting off the white stuff his nose.

                              I hope Steve Tasker eventually makes it.
