Former Steelers kicker Gary Anderson, eligible for the first time, joins former teammate Dermontti Dawson, a finalist last year, on the list of 131 men nominated for election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, announced today.

Ernie Holmes should be in the hall some day.......Ask Art Shell who was the toughest guy he ever went up against and he will tell you Ernie Holmes....

Just be cause God made him crazy,. and he could not have a long career because Teams did not understand him, should not be a reason he does not get in........

I would take Ernie Holmes on my line in front of anybody........Rip Fats.......

I love crazy dudes.........

That would be a true travesty.

Dirt, Kenny Anderson, Rice, Carter, Too Tall Jones, Guy and Greene are no-brainers, imho.
