Oh okay. I guess I missed that in your previous post.

Lewis should get in this year. Urlacher will get in eventually but may have to wait a season or two.

Wide receivers----

Terrell Owens--6 time pro bowler, 5 time 1st team all pro--2000 all decade 2nd team.
1078 receptions, 15934 yards, 153 touchdowns
played from 1996 to 2013

Randy Moss--6 time pro bowler, 4 time 1st team all pro--2000 all decade team
982 receptions, 15292 yards, 156 touchdowns
played from 1998 to 2012

Isaac Bruce--4 time pro bowler, 2 time second team all pro
1024 receptions, 15208 yards, 91 touchdowns
played from 1994 to 2009

Owens has an edge on Moss on pass receptions, other than that their careers stat wise are quite close. Isaac Bruce sadly comes in third stat wise (not by very much though) but I liked Bruce a lot. He also played along side Torry Holt, who finished HIS career with 920 catches. Similarly with Moss, he played alongside Chris Carter, who finished his career with 1101 catches, though he only played 4 seasons with Moss. In Owen's first 6 seasons, he had first Jerry Rice opposite to him, then J.J. Stokes and Tai Street.

Moss and Owens played in one super bowl, Bruce was in two of them.

Those Washington teams got plenty of press/TV coverage, so a lot of people got to hear Jacoby's name. Being part of an o-line with a cool nickname helped a lot as well. And he made the 80s all-decade team, maybe for those two reasons. That's what probably gives Jacoby (3/4/80s) a bit of a leg up over OTs from the area who were probably just as good, like Mike Kenn (3/5/none) and Marvin Powell (also 3/5/none) but played in obscurity on crummy teams. I'm okay either way if he's in or not, but if he does get elected, so should guys like Kenn and Lomas Brown.

Sad because this guy was IMO one of the 5 best offensive linemen I've ever seen. if only his left shoulder WASN'T operated on--well, you'll have to look at a couple online stories there.
Boselli (3/5/90s) was taken by the Texans in the expansion draft and was on their roster, but never played a down for them, if memory serves. Terrific player, but short careers by post 60s players has historically been a detriment to their HoF cases, except maybe for RBs. Only Dwight Stephenson is in among short career o-linemen from the time. That may change, though.

Jerry Kramer admits he's not "overwhelmed with confidence" on Hall of Fame ballot

Jerry Kramer is 82 and deserves to be in HOF. He's been a finalist so many times, get this guy in already! The local GB TV station just had a news feature on him, his daughter made me cry, enough, he should have been in ages ago.

Doesn't matter to me, Ghengis, he is finally in the HOF and definitely belongs there!

Looks like T.O. and Randy Moss made it, I was pretty sure about Moss but not about T.O.!

Brian Dawkins, Ray Lewis, Randy Moss,Terrell Owens and Brian Urlacher were all selected for enshrinement in the Class of 2018.

Those five players join longtime personnel executive Bobby Beathard (contributor) and seniors committee nominees Jerry Kramer and Robert Brazile for enshrinement.
