    You're kidding, right?

    Its very likely all the names you listed will make it. The fact you seriously believe that Deion freaking Sanders wont make the first ballot is beyond ridiculous.

    Wow. Thanks for that. He was damn good. I think it is at least worth the debate that Sanders is the greatest.

    Only the younger generation thinks so. But the older generations know better. Don't get me wrong: Sanders was great for his era (as long as you didn't invite him in for run support or ask him to actually tackle someone), but there were other guys who came before him who put their imprint on the position long before Deion arrived.

    Having said that, I think Deion gets in on first ballot.

    I also think Tim Brown will edge Cris Carter, although I wouldn't be surprised if both men got in on this ballot. Even without the stats, Tim Brown is a great choice simply because has been a role model both on and off the field. With the league trying to put forward a lasting, positive image, Brown gets the nod over Carter this time.

    Other nods:

    Faulk
    Dent
    Roaf
    Sharpe
    Dawson

    sanders, Faulk, Carter, Roaf should get in no doubt.

    Sharpe, Bettis and Dent might get in this year, but I feel they might also have to wait a year

    They're forgetting

    Marshawn Lynch. Maybe he is not always a hall of famer, but perhaps some kind of agreement can be reached if he's only a hall of famer when in "beast mode".
