Here are the nominees...

Tony Boselli
Issac Bruce
Brian Dawkins
Alan Faneca
Steve Hutchinson
Joe Jacoby
Edge James
Ty Law
Ray Lewis
John Lynch
Kevin Mawae
Randy Moss
Terrell Owens
Brian Urlacher
Everson Walls
Robert Brazile
Jerry Kramer


Here's who I have in:
* Jerry Kramer -- Never saw the guy play, but he seems like a no brainer. Everyone says how important he was to the SB I and II teams, I will put him on reputation.
* John Lynch -- A game changer out there and he has been up for a number of years... five years, he needs to be in.
* Randy Moss -- Explosive player who changed the way a team had to play defense. The Raiders years are a mystery, but overall, the guy is incredible.
* Terrell Owens -- We aren't putting Moss in without Owens. Another guy who in his prime was in the top five of all players in the league.
* Steve Hutchinson -- Best guard I have seen in the modern era. Created two hall of fame worthy running backs. With Walter Jones, possibly the best end of a line of all time.
* Ray Lewis -- The off the field character aspect will hurt him, but there is no denying he was the heart and soul of the Baltimore defense. Hard to imagine he won't get in. Urlacher probably has to wait a year because of him.

I have two WRs and two OLs in, so I can't get a third in... I am going with
* Everson Walls -- The Ed Reed of his day. Picking off QBs left and right. As time goes by, I think folks will appreciate his game more and more.

If T.O. isn't first ballot Ray Ray has to wait.

It shouldn't happen, and it almost certainly won't happen, but imagine the consternation if Urlacher gets in and Lewis doesn't.

I'm surprised only one Hog has made it in. That line was a force back in the 80s. Jacoby should be in.

Yep. I personally hate treating Owens having to wait as a precedent, but considering the justification that assholes like Polian used to keep him out was "character," I see no reason why Lewis shouldn't similarly have to wait.

Very true imo.

Jacoby, Boselli, TO, Moss & Lewis (The last two because tv has made them "friendlier")

With any issues about the linemen, NFL Films darling Jerry Kramer is right there for them.

And Walls was a gambler who got toasted more often than he made big plays. But...America's Team.

John Lynch was a real nice player, but I have not thought of him as a HOFer.

Jacoby should be included.

Moss, TO, Lewis and Urlacher are all no brainers

Lynch and his wife were good feature pieces, but on field he was a weak link on passing downs.
