2015 and beyond NFL Hall of Fame thread

Yeah i know there's already an NFL thread but i think a discussion about upcoming hall of fame nominees and inductions should have its own thread, leaving the other to express disappointment for the seasons

but i digress xP

Not even three weeks in and the League is already starting up the nominations for the Hall of Fame for next year. Looking through their list, i see several players that should be in in the next few years, and some that shouldnt. Let me start with the shoulds:

1. Dick Vermiel- HC Philadelphia Eagles, STL Rams (Won Super Bowl, 1999 Rams lost Super Bowl 1980 Eagles) Kansas City Chiefs
2. Nick Lowery K Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets
3. Herschel Walker, RB Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Minnesota Vikings
4. Morten Andersen K New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons, Kansas City Chiefs, Minnesota Vikings
5. Randall Cunningham QB Philadelphia Eagles, Minnesota Vikings, Dallas Cowboys, Baltimore Ravens

Now i do admit there's a bit of bias here since three of the shoulds have been a part of my Kansas City Chiefs, but i also do think their talent speaks volume enough to be included. Morten Andersen did last a long time for a kicker, after all :P

and here are the should nots/ later down the road:

1. Priest Holmes RB Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs
2. Steve McMichael, NT Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers
3. Edgerrin James, RB Indianapolis Colts, Arizona Cardinals
4. Sterling Sharpe, WR Green Bay Packers
5. Jimmy Smith, WR Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars

Priest fell short based on not only putting up enough hall of fame numbers, but because of the fact his potential, like Sharpe's, was cut short due to injury. Carl Peterson is to blame for that one. Edgerrin and Jimmy will be in, but not this year. and Steve McMichael for what its worth didnt really perform up to hall of fame standards unlike his fellow 85 bears Dent, Singletary and Hampton

Re: 2015 and beyond NFL Hall of Fame thread

It might be worth noting that Sharpe had some of his best years under a mediocre quarterback (Majkowski).

When I went to vote, of the above players listed I only saw Andersen (definitely HOF material, one of the most consistent and accurate kickers in NFL history) and Edgerrin (12,000+ rushing yards, HOF material as well).

I voted for the 15 allowed out of the list below on nfl.com:

Morten Andersen-voted
Steve Atwater
Jerome Bettis-voted
Tim Brown-voted
Isaac Bruce-voted
Don Coryell
Roger Craig
Terrell Davis
Tony Dungy-voted
Kevin Greene-did not vote, was a tough one to decide
Charles Haley-voted
Marvin Harrison-voted
Torry Holt-did not vote, also tough, next time for sure
Joe Jacoby
Edgerrin James-voted
Jimmy Johnson-voted
Mike Kenn
Ty Law-voted
John Lynch-voted
Kevin Mawae-voted
Karl Mecklenburg
Orlando Pace-voted
Junior Seau-voted
Will Shields
Kurt Warner-voted
Darren Woodson
