Kordell will be lucky if he makes the Settler's Cabin HOF

Agreed, man. Lloyd was obviously a great Steeler, but really not someone who completely dominated the league for a generation, as a HofF player should have.

As for Dawson, correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe he's Hall-eligible next summer, and he is a shoo-in for that honor. He was the best center of his generation, and played at a Pro Bowl level for 10 years. He's the first center to have an entire running game based around his ability to pull, and he was the anchor of some very talented Steelers running games.

Couldn't agree more...Dawson should be a 1st ballot HOF'er.....

Lloyd...as good as he was....I hate to say it...but no...not a HOF'er...

Shell and LC are hurt by the fact that so many Steelers from that era are in...as great as they were...they are just about a half step below those who made it...

As far as Anderson...he's a HOF'er...but would he go in as a Steeler???

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pro_Football_Hall_of_Fame
Enshrinees do not go into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a member of a certain team. Rather, every team that an inductee had played or worked for is listed equally. While the Baseball Hall of Fame plaques depict each of their inductees wearing a particular club's cap, the bust sculptures of each Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee makes no reference to any specific team. (It should be noted, however, that the Baseball Hall of Fame does not officially induct players as a member of a certain team. The picture of a cap on the plaque is solely for visual effect; all teams are listed on the plaque.)

OH MY!!! Of Course I am partial to Centers....BIG D DAWSON
And I agree that Greenwood and Shell should already be in there...
Lloyd never did enough to deserve it, was a great player!
Woodson and Bettis will soon be there.

I know its rare that a kicker get into the hall. But i'm in agreement that he should be in the hall of fame. He is one of the all time nfl leading scorers. If vinateri gets in we all will know that anderson got screwed

That was a slip of the tongue. He actually said "Hall of Shame". Poor Kordell.

LC and Shell should have already been inducted. Dirt most definitely deserves that honor - no question about it.
