QBs - Favre is a shoo-in of course. I'm surprised Phil Simms isn't already in based on playing QB in New York alone...

RBs - Roger Craig should have been in a long time ago. He was integral to the 80's 49ers. Moose will probably make it in eventually (how many FBs are in the HOF anyway?)

WRs - TO gets in eventually, the rest are guys who put up crazy numbers in the beginning of the "you can't touch the QB anymore or pop guys going over the middle anymore era"

TEs - Both were really good, not sure if either makes it any time soon though.

OLs - You know a few of these get in eventually and most of them are really deserving

DLs - Dexter Manley was a beast for a few years, but of course I mostly remember him for his education woes more than his actual playing not being a Redskins fan or a fan of another NFC East team.

LBs - Clay Matthews deserves entry. Was great for a LONG time and played even longer. Can't believe Matt Millen isn't in already either (independent of his GM "abilities" of course).

DBs - Much like the WRs there is a HUGE logjam of guys you think should be in and a lot of these guys still made their bones despite being hamstrung by the aforementioned rule changes. Well other than Sharper who we can say probably has no chance unless the voters go full misogynistic.

As a Colts fan, I'd love to see Edgerrin James, Marvin Harrison, and Tony Dungy get in, and I imagine that at least Edge and Marvin eventually will.

Favre is an obvious shoo-in.
