Default Rickey Jackson > Gregg Lloyd, Russ Grimm> Dirt Dawson. Really?

Sorry if this sounds like Steelers sour grapes. And I particuarly hate to sound bitter when two great and deserving Pitt alumni go in on the same day. But I saw Ricky Jackson and Russ Grimm play their entire NFL career's. And as is the case with all former Panthers I followed their NFL careers closely. And I'm here to tell you that while Grimm was a great guard with the Redskins he wasn't nearly the player Dermonti Dawson was. And the same goes for Ricky Jackson relative to Greg Lloyd who wasn't even up for induction today. Ricky was a great all around linebacker, but Lloyd was a game changer, the baddest mo-fo of his time and one of the baddest of any time.

Oh well hopefully Dermontii makes it next year.

LC Greenwood isnt in the HOF that is a shame he was a game changer. Donnie Shell inst there are so many who deserve HOF, but will never see it.

So many great steelers who should be in the hall that are not. It's a crime that Kevin Greene isn't in the hall either.

You can thank Peter King ( That Ass Pimple ) who was quoted as saying " There are too many Steelers in the HOF from those 1st 4 Superbowls " ! That fat POS has been black balling L.C. Greenwood for years!

He can swing from my ass hair!

Plus some guy named Floyd Little made it in. 2 questions 1. Who the hell is Floyd Little 2. What the hell is the rationale behind putting him in ahead of Dirt Dawson?

completely agree with all the above.... while grimm was a solid guard thru out his carrear, he wasn't considered the best at his position like dawson was. as for ricky jackson, i don't ever recall his name being mentioned when great linebackers are being discussed.
