Hall of Fame to induct 20 members for 2020 class
Around The NFL staff
Twenty Hall of Famers for 2020.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced it will induct a one-time only class of 20 members next year to further commemorate the NFL's 100th anniversary. The class will include five modern era players, 10 senior era players, three contributors and two coaches.
The decision was approved by the Hall's Board of Trustees during its annual meeting Friday.
The next decisions will be announced in September as a large list of nominees in each category will be revealed. Modern era players include those whose careers ended within the past 25 seasons, while senior era players are those who have been retired for more than 25 years. Semifinalists will be chosen later in the fall and finalists will be announced in January.
A bigger class benefits the senior era most, and could be a notable development for wide receiver Sterling Sharpe and NFL All-Decade honorees like running back Roger Craig, offensive linemen Joe Jacoby, Jimbo Covert, Al Wistert, Bruno Banducci and Ox Emerson, receivers LaVern Dilweg and Drew Pearson, defensive end L.C. Greenwood, cornerback Lester Hayes and safety Cliff Harris.
The eight members of the 2019 class -- cornerback Champ Bailey, contributor Pat Bowlen, contributor Gil Brandt, tight end Tony Gonzalez, cornerback Ty Law, center Kevin Mawae, safety Ed Reed, and safety Johnny Robinson -- receive their gold jackets Friday and will be enshrined Saturday.
what an absurd spin zone
That's some JC Shurbertt shit
this is apparently the thread for every mundane Giabts tweet.
I like it
Today’s enshrinement of Bailey reminded me of his 2006 season, maybe the goat season for a cb
the football giants move the needle
I really like him as a human being and I’d like for him to be successful. Thanks. Please respect my decision. No interviews please.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the trip down Ed Reed memory lane that the HOF induction has provided
What a fuckin football player
Any update from that #Cleveland Browns facebook group? You know the ones that call the Steelers the Squealers? I’m sure they are quite proud of their offseason championship and would love to track their meltdown this season.
No, the Browns blow.
What did you have for dinner?
Burgers and brats, leftover stuff we didn’t cook while down at the lake. It was good. Culver’s to follow.
Pat Bowlen’s daughter
Okay direct tv has to go...I don’t get the nbc channel because of some pissing match they’re in....fucking stupid.
Steelers fans act like stupid assholes for 45+ years nbd. Browns fans act like stupid assholes for six months, we've got to get to the bottom of this
That’s the best mic’ed up ever, laughed my ass off the first time and it never gets old.
And you know that idiot getting the holding penalty got it bad after that game.
Ed Reed is undoubtedly the goat safety
Champ was overrated
Don't @ me
Everyone looks overrated compared to Ed reed
Not sure champ Bailey was overrated
Was a wild time in my life, not saying my opinion should mean anything, but I really didn't think he was all that great.
I'm of the opinion that Antoine Winfield was the 2nd best corner of that time period behind Charles Woodson
This feels like a wrong opinion.
Someone posted a tweet saying that in 2006 Bailey was thrown at only 35 times and he picked off 10 of them
I'm not sure how much better it gets than that
Probably, opinion is based on his time in DC.
It has that nice mix of wanting to support your team, your region, and yet still set off a metal detector. You don't hit that trifecta often in hats.
Polamalu >> Ed Reed
I do think he racked up several pro bowls based on his rep post 2009 but there was a 2-3 yr period there with the broncos that he was absurdly good and considered by a lot of people to be the best/most valuable non qb player in the nfl.
This is bad and wrong.
I hate the Ravens more than the Steelers but this is wrong.
They didn’t play the same position, and yes this is wrong.
I was trying to think of a perfect fit for Ed reed because he is the best all time free safety, Sean Taylor came to mind. Polamalu comes to mind also, polamalu could play both spots but strong safety is probably where he would be nowadays
It takes an insanely bad take to get you to defend a raven and a Cane. Glad we finally found the limit.
I’m a Steelers fan, and I love Troy and he was incredible but it’s not even particularly close. Ed was just on another level.
needs to be a smilie
both of them
Yeah, that was an easy change
All of my takes are correct
Even the ones where you thought any Browns QB prior to baker was good?
At least I didn't say Polamalu>Reed
What a pile of dog doo doo. Watson deserves better
Oh I guess they still have Lamar Miller but still
sounds like houston should trade for zeke
