I don't think Dave gets in this year.  The voters don't want to put him in right after Jerry got in last year. He's going to have to wait a few more years.

One year I posted the list and added Dave to the bottom and someone actually went to Ask Dave and started a thread to congratulate him. lol

I'm not too surprised.  There's always someone.

But you would think that the title of 'Web God' would be a clue, I use that same title every year lol.

Lewis and Moss are locks. Urlacher possibly too. There isn't much new blood added in, so Dawk should have a better chance than guys who have been eligible for year(s) before him and haven't gotten in yet.

I don't think they all get in this year, but I'd like to see these guys in HOF: Boselli, Dawkins, Faneca, Hutchinson, Lewis, Moss, Urlacher.

Lynch retired sooner and was a finalist 5 times before. This is Dawk's 2nd time as a finalist.

Lynch has way worse numbers in every single category, there really is no reason for him to get in ahead of Dawk. I hope TO doesn't get in just for his reaction.

Lewis, Urlacher, Moss, and Hutchinson are 1st year eligible... To me Lewis is the only sure first ballot HOF. I am less sure of Urlacher and Moss. I doubt Hutchinson gets in on the first ballot.

This year I'd choose Lewis, Dawkins, Boselli, Faneca. I'm not sure if there's a 5th, Urlacher/Moss/Mawae?

It is difficult to get into HOF as a Safety. If Lynch is voted in this year, Dawk is a shoo-in.
