Default Hall of Fame - who's in, who's out?

In five years there will be several very worthy first time candidates for the NFL Hall of Fame. As I recall, the class is limited to five players per year - and these players will also have to compete with others who retired earlier. So which of these players gets in on the first ballot and which ones will have to wait?

Larry Allen
Brett Favre
Jonathan Ogden
Warren Sapp
Junior Seau
Michael Strahan

Wow... that is a pretty solid group right there. Tough call. I dont think any of those dont deserve to get in on the 1st Ballot.

But if I had to pick, I would say: Farve, Ogden, Allen, Strahan, and Sapp.

Seau hasn't retired, but he had off season surgery to his rotator cuff and nobody seems to be interested in signing him. The last comment I saw about him was "I have a choice of surfing or a choice of playing." I would think that if times were interested they'd be bringing him in for a physical, and I would think if he really wanted to play he wouldn't be talking about surfing. Sure, he may end up playing but I'm guessing he's done.

How the hell can you say none of them deserve to go in first ballot?

Favre is FOR SURE a first ballot Hall of Famer. After him I'd say Seau.

The rest might have to wait a little but, but Favre and Seau are first ballot without a doubt.

Favre no doubt has the best chance to be a 1st time ballot hof.. he's done to much not be elected in the 1st time.. sapp might be a maybe. but he does have a ring

He said he's not sure if any of them DON'T deserve to get in on the first ballot. =O

Favre for sure, I'd like to see Strahan and Sapp get in at the same time too. But who knows.
