The NFL will be announcing the 2012 Hall Of Fame class later today at 5:30 p.m. on NFL Network. The voters have a list of 17 candidates and must trim at least ten of them off because the maximum class size is seven.
I think former head coach Bill Parcells should be one of the guys to make it. Parcells is the only coach in NFL history to guide four different teams to the NFL Playoffs.
Another guy I’d like to see in this years class is Charles Haley who is the only player to win five Super Bowl rings. Haley started his career as a linebacker and then converted to a full-time defensive end when he joined the Dallas Cowboys. This guy was a monster pass rusher and had 11 sacks in 12 playoff games.
The last guy I will talk about is Chris Doleman who also converted to a defensive end after starting his career as a linebacker. Doleman was one of the best pass rushers to ever play the game.
Then at 9 p.m. the NFL will have its first ever NFL Honors award ceremony which will be carried live on NBC. The show will be hosted by Alec Baldwin.
