I recommend:

A. Monk
D.Green
R. Grimm
D. Thomas
P. Taglibue

But, I am a little bias since I loved the Redskins as a kid. Carter is good pick based on numbers, but I think he should have to wait a year because of his drug issues in Philly.

A bit biased and I know the hall of fame is pure politics these days, but Dermontti is better than all the O lineman (Guards & tackles) on that finalist list IMHO.
He somewhat redefined the centre postion with his ability to move and block on pulls. The consumate professional and Steeler......
Hopefully he will get his day at some point down the road !

Amen to that. Paul Tagliabue had class, but he was tough. I believe he wouldn't tolerate some of the shenanigans being played around the NFL these days. Beliprick* would have received a much more severe penalty from Tags than what he got from Goodell.

I dunno, HTG - I liked Tagliabue, but he wasn't the firmest disciplinarian either. Look at Ray Lewis as just one example of that. As far as not coming down on ownership, I chalk that up to Goodell knowing what side his bread is buttered on. I doubt Tagliabue would have been any harsher in the "punishment" of Kraft and Co.

IMHO, I feel Dirt and McDaniel are close (McDaniel was as much of a beast as Dirt was), but I definitely think Dirt was a better O-lineman than Kuechenberg, Zimmerman and Grimm. The difference between those three and Dirt? They have SB rings, and Dirt doesn't.
