21 L.C. Greenwood

If it were not for so many Steelers he would have already been elected. He and Donnie Shell get the shaft as a result.

A valuable member of the steel curtain.

L.C. greenwood needs to be in the Hall.

It's been long enough, he deserves a spot in Canton.

22 Tommy Nobis

Awesome 2 way player at UT!

The greatest Falcon

Please, he never even made a 2nd or a 1st all-pro team.

Tommy Nobis and many Falcons deserve HOF. Jessie Tuggle, Nobis, and Mike Kenn among others

23 Otis Taylor

One of the best receivers of the old AFL

24 Johnny Robinson

Best safety of his generation. Overlooked due to career in AFL. Deserves to be in the Hall!

Over 50 interceptions, Super Bowl champion and one of the best complete safety's.

Probably the greatest AFL player not in

Should have been in long ago

25 Leslie O'Neal

Leslie O'Neal is very underrated. He has as many sacks as Lawrence Taylor.

A very specialized pass rusher, not great against the run, but I would say he compares favorably to Fred Dean and Richard Dent and they are both in the HOF.

26 Leroy Butler

Should've been in the HOF like every other player that was voted to the 90's all decade team.

Not before players like Johnny Robinson, Steve Atwater, Cliff Harris and Jake Scott.

Team of 90's 1st team belongs

overrated.

27 Drew Pearson

I find it hard I believe the man who caught the first Hail Mary pass isn't in the hall of fame. He was a part of arguably one of the greatest plays in football history. He has to go in.

Has been lost over time, but he was every bit as good as John Stallworth, Lynn Swann and Charlie Joiner. Hard to tell the story of the Dallas Cowboys without including Drew Pearson. He would get my vote.

28 Randall Cunningham Randall Cunningham Randall W. Cunningham is a former American football quarterback in the National Football League and current football coach and pastor.

People voting obviously don't know too much about old NFL players, learn your history children.

Cunningham was a great player to watch. I liked him best on the Vikings

One of the best

No, not good enough!

29 Terrell Owens Terrell Owens Terrell Eldorado Owens is an American football wide receiver who played for the Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers, and Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League.

Even with all of his shenanigans, he will get in some day ut don't be surprised if there is a wait involved.

Terrell Owens is one of the most well known characters in football

Terrell Owens deserves more, he was a great football player. And the best part was when he knead down in cowboys stadium

He should make it

30 Irving Fryar

Had a great second act in his career. May have been more of a threat in his thirties than his twenties. Never see him getting the love for the HOF unless senior committee sees his career differently when he gets on that ballot years from now.

Irving Fryar is on the list, but not Jason Taylor, Brian Dawkins, and Alan Faneca. Kevin Mawae also didn't get included on this list.

31 Brain Mitchell

Special teamers have found tough sledding when it comes to the HOF. Not sure he ever gets there, but I would vote for him before Steve Tasker.

32 Torry Holt

Some of the most reception yards of all time

Torry Holt & Isaac Bruce make it tough on each other

Pace is going in this year...

He was apart of the G.S.O.T (greatest show on turf). - htoutlaws2012

33 Phil Simms

Not a lot of love but things would be different if he started and won the Super Bowl that Hostetler Won.

Should be a HOFer. Top 15 in all time wins. One of the greatest Super Bowl performances of all time.

The best Giants QB ever

Is amazing

34 Tony Gonzalez Tony Gonzalez Anthony David Gonzalez is a former American football tight end who played 17 seasons in the National Football League.

He may not be elgible yet, but he's gonna make it the second he has the chance - Danmarino4

35 Henry Ellard

If Lynn Swann is in, Henry should have gone in a long time ago! Henry Ellard has 13,777 career yards to Lynn's mediocre 5,462 career yards. Henry has seven 1,000 plus yard seasons! Lynn Swann has none! How did Lynn Swann get in the Hall of fame?

Henry Ellard was very, very good but like Irving Fryar it may take the Seniors pool to get him elected a long ways down the road.

People say Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt were the best Rams WRs, but many forget Ellard

36 Jevon Kearse

Jevon Kearse had 14.5 sacks in his rookie season. That is a record that still stands today.

His career fizzled out each year after his first two seasons. Not even the Hall of Very Good.

Jevon Kearse deserves Hall of Fame

He had 14.5 sacks as a rookie.

37 Scott Studwell

Not a decent enough career, but it is amazing that between Alan Page, Carl Eller, Jim Marshall and Studwell, they never won a Super Bowl.

Jim Marshall's partner on the doomsday defense.

He has the 2nd most tackles ever and isn't even in.

38 Lester Hayes

If you have any doubts watch the two Super Bowl winning teams that he played on. He was more than the "stick-um guy." He could flat out cover and when he was partnered with Mike Haynes, team had to rely on screens and the TE to move the ball vs the Raiders.

Man I'm mad. I thought he was already in.

39 Deron Cherry

Exceptional safety during the eighties. He will need some love from the Seniors Pool.

40 Albert Lewis

Was a excellent cover corner for Kansas City and an incredible special teams contributor. If you look at his career numbers he should be Hall worthy.
