Willie Roaf, Dermonti Dawson, Chris Doleman, Curtis Martin, Cortez Kennedy.

Senior, Jack Butler

None of the WR's made it.

They showed highlights of each and I swear each was against the Broncos.

Bettis and Parcells did not make it. Appropriate

Cam Newton named offensive rookie of the year

Curtis Martin was a nice, productive and durable RB, but HoF? In the same class with Emmitt Smith or Gayle Sayers? Really? I guess the standards are simply play long enough to rack up impressive stats. That's just wrong.

Willliam Roaf is well deserved. Always wish he would leave the Saints for the Broncos. Martin had many yards but that was spread out in years past most RBs prime.

In their prime, Martin couldn't carry TD's jock. What a load of shiat.

Neither could Jerome Bettis, for that matter...

Roaf was a stud all his career, well deserved.

I could complain about Martin, but I'm pretty happy to see four linemen in one class--they're all deserving, but it's nice to see Roaf and Dawson getting recognized in particular.

This is one of those classes that ESPN won't know what to say about since there are no QB's, current analysts, or crying cowboys to promote.

i would have given the OROY award to Dalton or Green in cincinatti. both had monster seasons and led a terrible team a year ago to the playoffs this year.

Newton had an awesome year, but his presence didn't dramatically improve the Panthers.

While I can agree on Martin I would have been more pissed if Bettis had made it.

Martin deserved it. In a time when a back who broke a thousand yards was elite, he did it for a decade straight and many of those seasons he was closer to 1500. Hell of a player and very deserving model of consistency in my eyes.

They go with the record, hard to argue against an all time record for TDs.

1000 yards rushing during a 16-game season has never been elite, IMHO.

As I said, he didn't just break 1000 yards. He had close to 2000 all purpose yards several times and rushed for over 1450 4 times with one of those being 1697 yards. A career average carry of 4.0 is not too shabby either.

he averaged 83.9 yards rushing per game.

i'm sorry, but that's not HOF worthy. at least not for what the HOF used to represent.

are you really going to be telling your grandson someday that you were lucky you got to witness "the great Curtis Martin" play during his prime? i doubt it, unless you're related to him. good player. long career. but, not HOF worthy.

Absolutely. You know why? Cause someone will be saying the same thing about Emmitt Smith who had very similar numbers and played on better teams for the majority of his career.

Emmitt 81.2 yards per game. That would be less than Martin.

Sorry but Curtis Martin is the Art Monk of Running Backs. Art Monk didn't get in forever because the voters said he was very good for a very long time. The same could be said for Curtis Martin. When did his stats ever translate into a SB win? When was he ever a SB MVP? When was he ever a regular season MVP? When did he ever rush for 1700 yards?

So basically, Curtis Martin got in because he avoided major injuries and by averaging 60 yards per game for several seasons.

One question: where's the greatness in that?

What a joke!

I still have nightmares of the Roaf/Shields/Holmes years. They were an extremely impressive group during that time.

Your Monk comparison is a bit of a reach.
So, Curtis Martin retired with the MOST yards by a running back? And he retired with 3 Super Bowl rings?
So, HOW THE HELL does Martin go in after only waiting 2 years ... when Monk waited 8 years, with his 3 SB rings, and NFL records (at the time) for receptions and receiving yards?

This is why the HoF "voting committee" is such a cluster fuch, ... (possibly) the BEST guard in NFL History waits another year, so the 4th best RB can have his moment after waiting a year. What a joke
