Pro Football Hall of Fame

Pro Football Hall of Fame weekend is upon us…enshrinement on the front steps in Canton, Ohio.

A legendary class for sure, from many different eras.

Claude Humphrey-elite pass rusher of the Falcons, part of the original “Gritz Blitz” defense. He did not invent the head slap, but he sure used it.

Andre Reed-the Bills small college-big play receiver. Fast-tough-no fear-fiery. He was the pass catcher with Jim Kelly during that spectacular run of 4-straight Super Bowl games for Buffalo.

Derrick Brooks of Tampa Bay. He wasn’t Jack Lambert, he wasn’t Junior Seau, he wasn’t Mike Singletary. He was fast, quick, instinctive, smart and everywhere on the field.

Ray Guy-the first of his kind to get there, a punter, a punter, finally enshrined after all those years of waiting, all those yards, and all those coffin corner kicks for Al Davis’ Raiders.

Aeneas Williams, Arizona Cardinals, smooth, slick, effortless covering good wide receivers. A star player for the most part on bad Cardinal teams.

Walter Jones, Seattle’s mountain of a man, quiet as a mouse left tackle. You never knew he was on the field, because he never drew penalties, and his pass protection package snuffed out blitzes on that side. His play spoke volumes even if he was not much of a speaker.

The stars come out tomorrow afternoon in Canton. It will be a great day at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
