15 finalists for NFL Hall of Fame class fo '05 announced
http://www.elitestv.com/pub/2005/Jan/EEN41e44abde28df.h...

Up to seven of these finalists will be selected for induction into the Hall of Fame this year. The annoucement of the class of 2005 will be made during Super Bowl weekend in February. The induction ceremonies will take place in August during Hall of Fame Weekend in Canton, Ohio.

Dan Marino
Steve Young
Michael Irvin
Harry Carson
Derrick Thomas
Richard Dent
LC Greenwood
Russ Grimm
Art Monk (DEFINITELY IMHO)
Bob Kuechenberg
George Young- Giants former GM (a shoe in IMHO)
Roger Wehrli- who played for the Cardinals in the 70s.

The veterans committee nominated two players this year, Fritz Pollard who was the first African-American coach in NFL history and Benny Friedman who played for the New York Giants and Brooklyn Dodgers back in the 20s and 30s.

8. Did you ever hear "The Super Bowl Shuffle"
His first two lines were
"Sackman coming
I'm your man Dent"

His diction was not the best and the second line it sounded like Onionman Dent. Ever since, many people have called him Onionman.

2. Marino & Young shouldn't have any problem.
QB's usually win most popularity contests. I'd like to see LC Greenwood & Art Monk go in.

4. No way Irvin gets in first year
Aside from the off the field stuff he just didn't have a first year entry career. He was good that's for sure but not Art Monk good (and I am a Cowboys fan).

7. I'd vote
Marino, S. Young, G. Young, Greenwood, and Monk.

Derrick Thomas would be instant 1st ballot if he didn't perish far too soon. :(
