Default Three Steelers are Hall semifinalists

By Mike Prisuta
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Friday, November 17, 2006


Former Steelers center Dermontti Dawson, former Steelers linebacker Kevin Greene and Steelers assistant head coach/offensive line coach Russ Grimm are among the 25 semifinalists for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2007.
Dawson played for the Steelers from 1988-2000.

Greene was in Pittsburgh from 1993-95 during a career that also included stints with the Los Angeles Rams (1985-92), Carolina Panthers (1996, '98-99) and San Francisco 49ers (1997).

Grimm, a Scottdale native, played guard for the Washington Redskins from 1981-91.

The list of 25 semifinalists will be reduced to 15 modern-era candidates.

That list, to be announced in mid-January, will increase to 17 with the inclusion of Senior's Committee nominees -- Gene Hickerson and Charlie Sanders.

The Class of 2007 will be determined Feb. 3, 2007, the day before Super Bowl XLI.

Between three and six members are selected each year.

Dermontti should be a lock, but may not make it this time around - same with Kevin Greene. Russ Grimm should definitely make the final cut of finalists and I hope he gets in this time around. Good luck guys and we'll be waving those TTs for ya!

I wonder when the Hall of Fame will build a Steelers Wing or better yet a Steelers building! I bet they'd get more traffic at the Steelers building than the other one!!

I also wonder if they have a limit of how many players from one team can make it into the hall of fame?

Kevin Greene? I know he was good and all, I just never thought of him as HOF.

he has more sacks than any other linebacker ( since sacks were kept as a stat anyways)

I still think it's a shame Donnie Shell is not part of the debate anymore - I like Dawson and Greene -but if I had to choose one Steeler right now it would be Shell

Gotta agree with you there, sumo, but I think the biggest travesty of all is L.C. Greenwood not being inducted after 6 tries. The guy was a 6 time Pro-Bowler, has 4 Super Bowl rings and was just as much a part of the Steel Curtain Defense as Greene, White and Holmes for pity's sake!

Whoa! I had to look that up. I had no idea. He was also on the 90's All-Decade Team.

Dang....how did I not remember this? I was in my early 20's when he played for the Steelers, so I can't use the "I was a little kid when he played" excuse.
