    I guess it depends on how many of those guys where trained by Villarreal.

    Matthews, Monk, Thurman and Derrick Thomas . . . and as much as I hate to admit, Michael Irvin.

    I thought one of the more interesting things was who WASN'T included. No Terrell Davis. He would have sparked a lot of debate.
     
  6. Monk (finally), Matthews, Tagliabue and Thurman Thomas.

    If he gets in, Priest Holmes better be right behind him.

    Matthews, Monk, and Zimmerman.

    Seriously, Monk should have gotten in long ago. And I hate the Deadskins.

    Art Monk is the most glaring current omission from the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    Other than that ... Is it just me, or is this a very weak group of finalists?

    I guess I'd take Guy, Matthews, Thurman and Zimmerman. Tags will get in, though.
     
  11. Why the lack of love for Dent? Tied for fifth all-time in sacks, four Pro Bowls, two Super Bowl rings and a Super Bowl MVP. Dan Hampton's in with 80 fewer career sacks.

    Dan Hampton is in?? Wow.
