    I wonder about these writers who vote for the HOF Candidates

    Jerome should of made it.

    Curly culp? What about Charles Haley who has 5 sb rings and was a force for two teams.

    And Michael Strahan

    Curley Culp is a Seniors candidate who was voted on separately from the modern-era guys. There is a maximum of 5 modern-era candidates who can be inducted each year. In order to add Bettis, Haley, and Strahan, you'd have to eliminate 3 of the 5 modern era candidates who got in today. In another thread, I submitted my predictions, and I think I only got one of the seven wrong (I believe I suggested Haley instead of Sapp).

    I really thought Jerome would make it, now if Haley made it instead of Sapp I wouldn't of been disappointed as much as he is well derserving but SAPP? The Bus will get in it's just a matter of time, he seperated himself from all other BIG backs in the way he played and how long he played.
    Congrats to Chris Carter, he had to wait for sometime to get in too and one of the best receivers ever. The way these writers vote I wonder if Hines Ward will ever make it when its his time? In my eyes he was the best steelers receiver that wore the Black & Gold but he may have a tough time getting in.

    Hines also had 100 catches but performed better in the post season than Carter (who just made it) and Tim Brown (who has not)....

    Also, when Bettis retired, he was #5 on the all time rushing list...Curtis Martin was #4...Bettis should and will get in...

    Homes had 1000 catches....

    Bettis likely has to wait as a result of Faulk and Martin making it the past couple of years. Some of these other guys have already been passed over twice in favor of a RB, so the voters probably are trying to spread things out.

    There is no greater travesty than the fact that Donnie Shell is not even thought of as a candidate much less in the Hall of Fame. Compare his numbers to all SS who played the game and he is top 3 minimum all-time. That should get you in the Hall of Fame. Then factor in his leadership and how in big games he always seemed to come up with a big hit/big play for his team. And we are talking about teams that won 4 Super Bowls.

    It irks me to no-end!!
