1. Monk
2. McDaniel
3. Guy

No more than three. It's the HoF, not a night club.

We'll just have to agree to disagree here, buddy.

Dawson is deserving of it the way the man played but I think he will make it eventually.

Dawson definitely deserves it. The best center of his generation and there hasn't been a better one in the league since his retirement

Dirt not being in is a travesty. He was the best at his position for his entire career, and he may be one of the classiest off-field guys ever to play the game. He should have been unanimous first ballot.

Dirt not making the cut can be atributed to two things.

Peter King's "Too Many Steelers" argument.
The Rings. The other O-Linemen have them, Dirt doesn't. Damn you Neil O' Donnell.

Yeah, what's up ith that? They have Ray Guy in there instead of an outstanding Offensive Lineman. That makes no sense at all.

I think Dr.Z of SI supports Dawson for the HOF

Craig of Pittsburgh -- "Can you please give me some sort of an explanation as to why Dermontti Dawson is not even on the final HoF list this year?"

Sure, the explanation is that most selectors don't have a clue as to what a center does out there.

Or at least excellent offensive line play.

I wish we could find a center that played even half as well os Dirt Dawson did.
