I was glad to see Carter in. I think that the 3.9 YPC hurts the Bus.

He'll get in eventually...Also glad to see Chris Carter get in. Warren Sapp is a stretch though IMO.

It is tough for someone who is not a first ballot candidate when there is a cap on 5 inductees of modern (past 25 years) players per year in a sport with 22 starters - but that is what makes Canton exclusive

Agree on Sapp as a first ballot - a stretch IMO. Bus was the only RB finalist this year so I liked his chances. I'm not sure who's coming up next year but it'll be a while before LT is eligible. Can't think of any other RB who should bypass the Bus til then.

Agree. It makes it mean more. Unlike the ultra lame Basketball HOF.

Warren Sapp? In baseball, you have to be of "outstanding character". Is this not a requirement in football?

Sapp getting in 1st time is a little disappointing to me.
