Allen and Ogden are locks. Allen was the best guard of his generation. Odgen was the best LT of his era.

Who needs to go in right now, IMO: Chris Carter, Larry Allen, Charles Haley, Jerome Bettis, Bill Parcels, On the fence: Will Shields or Eddy DeBartolo Jr or Kevin Greene - that is a really nice draft class IMO. The other guys can wait until next year or year after.

hmm, will be interesting - I think Ogden can wait 1 more year over top 5-10 RB of all time

EDIT: Andre Reed? Hey can wait a loooong while IMO. I better never see him in Canton first before Hines Ward. Of course, yards will trump winning the big one and what their leadership void meant for the team. Plus, Hines brings a uniqueness that most, if not any receivers have - blocking

unfortunately, i think the Steelers will be shut out this year.

There's just too many big names. In addition to some of the above posts - Strahan is adored by the media for some reason. He's a lock.
Don't write off Art Modell either. Even though he's remembered best for his moving a franchise in the dead of night, he did a TON for the sport, TV, and more.
Also, alot of the media is pushing Cris Carter as well.
Don't think we'll see a Steeler this year.............

I agree, Strahan is a media darling, I would be surprised if he isn't in.

The Bus gets in this year as he is the only back among the finalists. By the way I'm an old-timer and I remember both Dave Robinson and Curly Culp. If it was between the two of them, I would lean towards Culp, he was an absolute beast in the middle of the defensive line.

I hope JB gets in this year! Not sure if Kevin Greene is really a Steeler. Didn't start OR finish his career here. He was only with us for 3 of his 15 years. But I'll take it if he gets in!

Bettis is going to get in as are Allen, Ogden, and Strahan. Im not so sure Kevin Greene gets in.

All you have to do to find out who gets in is watch to see who commentates for the NFL Network. Seems like if you are on Total Access, you're in...
