So I guess if you become Comissioner of the NFL, it's an automatic ticket to the HOF. :ohno: :ohno: :ohno:

I certainly remember Drew Pearson growing up, but on how much ground does he have to stand?

He led the NFL in yards one year and he was the only receiver to date to do it with less than 1000 yards (870) since 1959.

His 489 receptions are behind other players from the same era: Carmichael 590, Biletnikoff 589, Jackson 579, Branch 501...

Pearson's regular season numbers are pretty much the same as Ken Burrough from the Oilers. I don't hear anyone clamoring for him to even be on a ballot.

What? A guy who specialized in knocking out quarterbacks with his shoulder? Say it ain't so!

Johnson in is bogus. Cowher is fine. Tomlin will probably follow him.

I like Harris, but I'm still waiting for D.D. Lewis.

Also, no Pearson, no D. White, and no Tony Hill makes for yet another bogus class.

SuperHornet's Athletics Hall of Fame includes Jacksonville State kicker Ashley Martin, the first girl to score in a Division I football game. She kicked 3 PATs in a 2001 game for J-State.

How was Steve Sabol not already in?

I'd also consider The Voice of God, John Facenda, but Sabol has to be there first. He conceived every script Facenda read, every piece of music, all the art that is NFL Films.

Sabol should have been inducted while he was alive. That's a shame.
"In the seventh inning fans all get up and sing 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game,' and they're already there. It's really a stupid thing to say and I don't know who made 'em sing it. Why would somebody that's there get up and sing take me out to the ball game? The first person to do it must have been a moron." - Phillies color commentator Larry Andersen

Dude. Who the fuck makes a video like this? Maybe TO?

Pathetic to see Drew Pearson stoop so low.
