Legendary receiver Jerry Rice headlines the 7-member Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2010
Somehow I never totally get my predictions for the Hall of Fame voting right, but at least I got 4 out of the 7 inductees right. It is hard to believe for the 3rd year in a row receiver Cris Carter did not get in and he was joined for the second year in a row by tight end Shannon Sharpe.
However the 44-member pro football writers panel did put together one pretty good class including first-ballot players Emmitt Smith and Jerry Rice plus the two Senior Committee candidates. Anyway, when I return to Canton, Ohio this July there will be one great class waiting to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2010 is listed below:
OG Russ Grimm – Washington Redskins (1981-91)
LB/DE Rickey Jackson – New Orleans Saints (1981-93), San Francisco 49ers (1994-95)
CB Dick LeBeau* – Detroit Lions (1959-72)
RB Floyd Little* – Denver Broncos (1967-75)
DT John Randle – Minnesota Vikings (1990-2000), Seattle Seahawks (2001-03)
WR Jerry Rice – San Francisco 49ers (1985-2000), Oakland Raiders (2001-04),Seattle Seahawks (2004)
RB Emmitt Smith – Dallas Cowboys (1990-2002), Arizona Cardinals (2003-04)
