    I would think Shields would make it in on the first ballot...

    Great player, but I don't see him as a Hall-Of-Famer.

    I think Shields reputation as a great guy will only enhance his resume, which, really needs no enhancing.

    I think Shields should be in but guards are not held in high regard.

    Thank god Tiki didn't go to camp this summer otherwise he would have had to wait five more years....

    Cowher and Schottenheimer will be interesting arguments. You wonder if Tomlin's success will help or hurt Cowher, who I think still has some coaching in him.

    Tiki has the numbers, but will never get in.

    I think Cowher won't get in now because they don't think he's done coaching. I think the same thing happened to Parcells the first time his name came up.

    Agreed on you with Cowher. As for Schottenheimer, he's a good coach with a lot of wins, but I can't endorse a coach who never made a Super Bowl being in the HOF.

    Mike VanderJagt?

    Peyton Manning thinks the Hall of Fame needs a drunk, idiot kicker.

    No way Schottenheimer wins a football election held in January.

    He'll be leading with three votes left, though.

    I think he makes it. Not this year, but eventually...

    He doesn't have the ring, but his record of building teams from nothing is very impressive.

    That said, his knack for getting himself run out of town won't help him either.
