Will be missing a worthy and deserving candidate. Sadly, Dirt Dawson was passed up. He may be arguably the best center to ever play the game, and won't even make the 15 man cut this year.

On the good news front, LC Greenwood made the cut, so there could be yet another Steeler inducted, but Dirt should have been there...

Dirt will get there, I have no doubt about it. He was just amazing and used his leverage so well and pulled better than any center I have ever seen.

To be fair, there are some great names in there...Aikman and White are shoe-ins. However, Dermonti was the best or one of the best ever at his position, and guys like Carson and Thomas and even Irvin were just very good. Irvin will get in this class too...the NFL has already shown with LT's induction that being a cokehead is okay in the NFL...

LC won't make it in...I hope he does, but he's been passed on for years. Alot of people think there are too many Steelers in there already.

Hope Grimm makes it this year, so he went in while he was still with the Steelers, even though he'll probably go in as a Redskin.

I'd like to see LC make it, but I have a feeling he won't. Dawson will get in soon.
