    Ken Anderson will go the way of Ken Stabler I feel.
    Tony Gonzalez is a slam dunk no brainer.
    Edgerrin James made all decade, he's going in.
    Cliff Branch is long overdue for an induction.
    Zach Thomas I feel is coming soon.
    Sterling Sharpe....I hope he does because he deserves it, damn neck injury.

    I assume guys like Gonzalez aren't bolded because they fall into the "well no ****ing duh" level of being in the hall of fame.

    Champ is a no brainer. Guy played a stupidly high level right up until the very tail end of his career (him getting absolutely torched by the Ravens in the 2012 playoffs was basically his unofficial retirement)

    Ty Law, while slowed down faster towards the end still had a good enough peak to warrant getting in. 5x pro bowler, 2 time all pro, all decade team.

    Ed Reed is another "no ****ing duh" in terms of questioning his validity for the hall.

    John Lynch probably will have to wait, but i think he's worth an induction at some point. 9 time pro bowler, 3 time all pro. Another guy that aged pretty well and played at a good level until retirement.

    Zach Thomas is more of an "i hope" than "i think" for me. Guy laid his body on the line for some really crappy Dolphins teams and has nothing to show for it. He certainly has the resume for consideration; 7 time all-pro (5 1st team/2 2nd team), 7 pro bowls, defensive ROTY, another all decader.

    If Jason Taylor made it, Zach Thomas for sure will make it.

    I’d love to see Isaac Bruce get in one day.

    Edgerrin James is one of the ultimate “what could have been” stories.

    Before that knee injury it looked like he was pretty much a lock for HOF. He was winning rushing titles and all-purpose yards titles damn near every year.

    Even after the injury, he was still a good RB who consistently gained 4-6 yards, but no longer had that breakaway speed.

    TBH I thought Faneca and Hutchinson were already in... two of the best OL of their time.

    Wait, Wrigley, why wouldn’t you put Tony Gonzalez in?

    The guy is the best TE of his time.

    I wonder how Adrian Wilson would be viewed had he played for a more successful team like the Pats.

    The guy was an awesome player.
