Eddie will probably get in. The NFL is working hard this year to rehabilitate him in the public mind (e.g. with the recent NFLN documentary). That's good. From the other semifinalists I find it simply ridiculous that Cris Carter and Charles Haley are not in. It would be nice to see George Seifert recognised at some stage as well, but the man never gets any respect. I love Roger and his 1000-1000 achievement was tremendous for the time, but there are too many RBs ahead of him in stats for him to easily get in.
Well God Bless Eddie, but it just exposes the hypocrisy and evil of the Hall of Fame voting committee, which is just a bunch of fat New York sportswriters, when they elect owners but continue year after year to ignore kickers and punters who actually played the game.
The Hall of Fame voting shoudl be taken away from the incompetent clown writers and given to the coaches, managers, and players in the league. Make the irrelevant media more irrelevant.

What about John Taylor?
That pisses me off. Taylor was 10x the player that Haley ever was--and a much better human being.
John was NOT 10 times the player Haley was period point-blank FACT. Also its not the human being Hall of Fame its the Pro Football Hall of Fame
A lot of these guys aren't particularly nice people especially some of the greats. Get over it.
four this year include: larry allen, jonathan ogden, sapp, and strahan. 3 of those guys are a lock, possibly 4.
So idk if eddie will get in. I'd like to see charles haley get in this year
one or two of the spots are usually always reserved for an owner/exec/coach so Eddie should really be sized up against any other non-player candidates of this years nominees and not the retired players doe
