Already a star Offensive Lineman when he signed with the Vikings, Steve Hutchinson would rattle off four straight Pro Bowls as well as three First Team All Pro nods when he joined the team.  Hutchinson was only a Viking for six years but there was no doubt who led the O-Line when he played there.
The core of our Notinhalloffame.com has always been our sports lists.  As such, it is with great pride that we have updated our Pro Football Hall of Fame list of those to consider for enshrinement in Canton, Ohio

The 2017 Hall of Fame Class added five players who we had listed (LaDainian Tomlinson, Jason Taylor, Terrell Davis, Kurt Warner and Morten Andersen), and we did not have trouble replacing them.  Actually, we have increased our 100 slightly to 103, for an impending increase in the months (ok, maybe years to come).

The revised ranking is based on your votes and comments and the addition of newly eligible former players.
Let’s get right to it!

Former Baltimore Ravens Linebacker Ray Lewis debuts at the number one spot.  The 13 Time Pro Bowl Selection was chosen for seven First Team All Pro slots and took Baltimore to two Super Bowl wins.  Lewis is likely to get inducted on his first try.

This drops perennial snub, Jerry Kramer to number 2.  Kramer was a Finalist nine times and helped Green Bay win the first two Super Bowls.  He is the only member of the NFL 75th Anniversary Team not to be enshrined.

Randy Moss makes his first appearance on the list at #3.  The former Wide Receiver is the highest ranked skill player and his appearance makes it harder for Terrell Owens to get in.  Moss was a Pro Bowler seven times and is third all-time in Receiving Yards and second all-time in Receiving Touchdowns.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers Offensive Lineman, Alan Faneca, remains at number four.  Faneca, a nine time Pro Bowler was a Finalist for Canton in the past two seasons.

Chuck Howley comes in at number five.  The MVP of Super Bowl V was a six time Pro Bowl Selection and was chosen for five consecutive First Team All Pros.

Another former Pittsburgh Steeler, L.C. Greenwood is in the top ten at number six.  Greenwood has been named a Finalist six times and was a part of the Steelers dynasty that won four Super Bowls in the 1970’s.  He was ranked #5 last year.

Brian Dawkins returns at number seven.  “Weapon X” was eligible for the first time last year and many expected that he would get inducted on his first try.  He didn’t but was a Finalist last yea

At number eight is Terrell Owens, who dropped two spots from last year.  T.O was a finalist in his first two years of eligibility but has been very vocal about being passed over.  This could really cost him.  He is second all-time in Receiving Yards, third in Receiving Touchdowns and eight in Receptions.

Brian Urlacher debuts at number nine, making three new eligible in the top ten.  The career Chicago Bear went to eight Pro Bowls and was selected for four First Team All Pros. 

Rounding out the top ten is Johnny Robinson who is known for his time with the Kansas City Chiefs.  The former Safety has been a Hall of Fame Finalist six times and has a Super Bowl ring with the Chiefs.

Another high profile debut entry is Ronde Barber, the long time Tampa Bay Buccaneers Defensive Back who appears at #15. 

Offensive Lineman, Steve Hutchinson makes his first appearance on the list at #34.

Former three time Super Bowl winner with the New England Patriots, Richard Seymour comes in at #48.  He is a seven time Pro Bowler.

Matt Birk, the Center who split his career with the Minnesota Vikings and the Baltimore Ravens, is ranked at #67.

Jeff Saturday, who protected Peyton Manning for Years and went to six Pro Bowls makes his debut at #76. 

We have also added Tony Boselli, who was a Finalist last year, but was unranked by us previously.  The man considered to be the greatest Jacksonville Jaguar of all-time finally makes his first appearance on our list at number 81.

The entire list can be found here.

Gang, you know what we want you to do!

Take a look at these revisions and cast your votes and give us your opinions!

We will soon be unveiling our Basketball Revisions and look for that unveiling soon.

As always, we thank you for your support!

We here at Notinhalloffame.com have always been fond of the fact that the Pro Football Hall of Fame has preliminary nominees; so much so that we incorporated that in both our Fictitious Athlete and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. As such, we are pleased to bring to you the preliminary nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2018.

All of the first year candidates will be underlined, and the returning Finalists will have an asterisk.

Mild surprise omissions at this stage include Quarterback Drew Bledsoe and Running Back, Shaun Alexander.

Perhaps the biggest head scratcher is that Steve Smith was chosen. We have to wonder if they thought they were voting for the recently retired Steve Smith Sr., who is eligible for Canton in 2022 and has over 14,000 Receiving Yards. This Steve Smith played five years and has 2,641 Receiving Yards.

We are guessing that Smith won’t make the next round.

Jerry Kramer and Robert Brazile have already advanced as Senior Finalists. Bobby Beathard has been announced as the Contributor Finalist
