The Pro Football Hall of Fame elected seven new members recently. They are:

Richard Dent
Marshall Faulk
Chris Hanburger (Senior)
Les Richter (Senior)
Ed Sabol
Deion Sanders
Shannon Sharpe

Congratulations to all.

My reaction here: this was a very strong class by and large. The only major quibble I've got is with Richard Dent, whose postseason honors I think are too meager to merit enshrinement. At 2(1AP)/4/none, that ties Fred Dean for the worst such profile for a HoF d-lineman.
Good Lord, Dent is the most deserving in that whole bunch. Well, along with The Hangman.

You're too hung up on the awards even though he has a healthy enough resume in that department anyway IMO.

The man had the greatest defensive performance, perhaps the greatest overall performance, in NFL playoff history in the 1985 playoffs vs. the Giants. That 3 week run in the playoffs by him is one of the most dominant performances in a playoff season ever.

Only 5 men have more sacks than him.

It's a shame it took this long to get him in.
