Top 10 Shoe-Ins For The Pro Football Hall of Fame
Tags: Football, Hall, of, Fame, NFL, Canton, Ohio, Brett, Favre, Peyton, Manning, top 10
Each summer, the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton,Ohio enshrines new members into their hallowed halls. Here is a list of active NFL players who are shoe-ins to take their place in NFL immortality.
|1. ||Brett Favre-QB-Green Bay Packers: The legend of Lambeau, Favre is set to break at least one of Dan Marino's records this season and is a former three-time NFL MVP. He has been to two Super Bowls (won one) and will be the face of the Green Bay franchise for years to come.|
|2. ||Peyton Manning-QB-Indianapolis Colts: After getting over the hump and winning his first Super Bowl, Manning is set to win even more rings and break more records. By the time he retires he should have almost every quarterback record.|
|3. ||Tom Brady-QB-New England Patriots: The Joe Montana of our era. Brady is the best "big-game" quarterback in the NFL. Winning one more Super Bowl would arguably make him the greatest quarterback of all time.|
|4. ||Ray Lewis-MLB-Baltimore Ravens: Lewis is one of the most intimidating linebackers in NFL history. He almost single-handedly won the Raven's the Super Bowl in 2001.|
|5. ||Jonathan Ogden-T-Baltimore Ravens: While Lewis has sowed up the defensive end of Baltimore's franchise, Ogden has been on of the most effective tackles in the game today, anchoring Baltimore's offensive line.|
|6. ||LaDanian Tomlinson-RB-San Diego Chargers: Tomlinson's work speaks for itself; he has averaged almost 2,000 yds a season and broke the touchdown record for NFL runningbacks. He may very well go down as the greatest running back in NFL history.|
|7. ||Marvin Harrison-WR-Indianapolis Colts: Harrison has the hall of fame numbers and now a Super Bowl ring to legitimize his status as one of the greatest wide receivers of all time. He has also been named to eight Pro Bowls.|
|8. ||Tony Gonzalez-TE-Kansas City Chiefs: Gonzalez has been one of the most dangerous and effective tight ends in NFL history. With no real star quarterback who has thrown him the ball, he has still put up Hall of Fame numbers.|
|9. ||Ed Reed-S-Baltimore Ravens: Part of the Ravens intimidating defense, Reed has revolutionized the safety position and should continue to put up Hall of fame numbers.|
|10. ||Adam Vinateri-K-Indianapolis Colts: With four Super Bowl rings and possibly the greatest clutch kick in NFL history (against the Raiders) Vinateri will no doubt join the other elite kickers in the Hall of Fame.|

I agree with all in the list except Ed Reed. He is not an HOF'er yet. If he retired today he would not even be in consideration. Give him a few more years and we can possibly put him there. I would replace him with Isaac Bruce. He is a lock.
