Manning and Wayne selected as finalists for HOF


Recommended Posts

As expected, but great news nonetheless!

 

 

The 15 player finalists have been selected:

 

The 15 Modern-Era Player Finalists will be considered for election to the Hall of Fame when the Hall’s Selection Committee meets virtually January 19, 2021. The full committee will elect up to five Modern-Era Players, who must receive a minimum positive vote of 80 percent for election.

Love Reggie, but Torry should go first. He's been waiting a long time. Calvin might skip the line just because of talent alone, but it would be a travesty with no playoff success

I can see Archie or Cooper.  I heard Peyton & Cooper were close growing up.  I assume Peyton will be doing Eli when he eventually gets in.  Or I could see Archie doing Eli if Cooper does Peyton.

Reggie's numbers dwarf those of Holt and Johnson.  He should not be passed over for either of those guys.

Peyton will get in, Wayne will not do so in the first ballot, given the history of difficulty for WRs with first ballots typically. Wayne should get in the second ballot though.

Nah. Pollian would probably rest him...

 

Nice one. He could rest both Peyton and Wayne together, that fiery red headed GM. :)

Reggie's stats are better then Holt's, but it doesn't dwarf it. Holt has 13300 yards and 74 tds

Yeah, I guess "dwarf" wasn't the right word to use.

Wayne was a finalist last year, it was his first eligible year. This is his second time being a finalist. In the original post, Wayne posted "Back at it again..." on his Twitter account after the announcement. I hope it's his last time getting back at it for HOF consideration.

"Eclipses" might have been what you were looking for.

Yep.   Wayne clearly has better numbers.    150 more receptions, 1000 more yards, 8 more TD's and a better catch percentage.

Manning gets in no question.  I think Reggie should get in and will get in one day but I don’t think he does this year.  Manning and Woodson are probably locks for two of the five spots.
