Who Would You Vote For?


  1. Dr. J says:

    I’m still slightly leaning towards Willie Roaf over Bill Parcells. Also, Tim Brown may just surpass Andre Reed with the voters although I may be wrong. Brown and Roaf probably reflect my heart more than my brain though too.

    • hofworthy says:

      I hear you. Of the three wideouts (Carter, Brown, and Reed) – Carter is clearly the best. Followed by Brown and then Reed.

      But I think Parcells gets in based on name recognition.

  2. Josh says:

    Jerome Bettis needs to get in…best big back in NFL history… retired with 5th most rushing yards in an era shifting to heavy passing attacks
