    Many people simply don't realize the greatness of Ogden because he was a low profile kind of guy. The voters definitely got that one right.

    Me too. I guess being a loud mouth TV personality pays.

    I think he deserved it. I just dont think he made the impact Allen and Strahan did. Both changed the way the posistion was viewed. Ogden didnt. In Allen and Strahans prime there was no doubt they were the top players at their spots. Can you say that about Ogden? Walter Jones people might have something to say about that. Tony Boselli.

    Again i say Ogden was good and he deserved it. But he wasnt on Allen or Strahans level

    Wait, Sapp gets in 1st try but Strahan doesn't and Haley gets snubbed again? What a joke...

    It is accurate, if that's what you mean.

    I disagree about Strahan impacting the way the position was viewed. That was done by guys like Reggie White and Bruce Smith before him and Deacon Jones before them, etc. Also, you can't penalize a player because there were other 1st ballot HOFers at his position at the same time. That would be like diminishing Barry Sander's value because he played at the same time as Emmitt Smith. Smith was better, but Sanders was still one of the all time greats.

    My comment is that Rick Gosselin is an idiot, and Charean Williams hasn't been able to offset this fact.

    Ogden was every bit as dominant at his position as Strahan was at his. In fact, I'd say Ogden was more consistently dominant than Strahan.

    Love that Larry chose Jerry, interesting that no one has chosen Jimmy yet. I think Haley would choose Jerry when the time comes as well.

    Allen and Parcells at some of the HOF dinners should be interesting, Parcells showed Allen no respect while he was here. Cant wait to see big LA give his speech.

    It'll probably something along the lines of: "This is a great honor, thank you and goodnight."

    "@jonmachota: Jerry: "I have never been more proud of anyone who has reached the Pro Football Hall Fame. Larry Allen represents the best of the very best""

    "@jonmachota: Jerry Jones on Larry Allen: "Larry is 1 of the greatest players in Cowboys history, and arguably the very best guard to ever play the game.""

    That's 7 words too many. I think he'll just say "Thank you" :D
