    The Pro Football HoF does not feature players in a jersey of anything.
    They have busts and all teams for which they played are listed.
    The team for which they were a major contributor is highlighted.
    With Zimmerman, I have to assume that BOTH the Vikings and Broncos will be highlighted, as he was an All-Pro for both teams.
    Not sure if that's the case for anyone else.
    There - just checked the list.
    Jim Finks is bold for both the Vikings and the Bears.

    And Zimmerman is already listed - BOLD for the Vikings, NOT bold for the Broncos.

    All Pro means nothing.
    They list them by the following:

    NOTE: In this listing - a Hall of Famer is named under all clubs on which he made his primary contribution to professional football - (i.e. - Chuck Noll is listed under Pittsburgh as a coach - but not under Cleveland as a player). Hall of Famers who made the major part of their primary contribution for any one club are listed in BOLD CAPS. In cases where a player contributed about equally and in a major way to two or more clubs - he is listed in BOLD CAPS under both clubs (ie. Nick Buoniconti is listed with both the Patriots and Dolphins as his primary teams). Hall of Famers who spent only a minor portion of their career with any club are listed under that club in lower case.

    One thing that is interesting though, is that they chose who will introduce them.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    All-Pro means just as much in the minds of the all-powerful selection board as any other statistic or honor bestowed upon a player during his career.
    For linemen, who rarely win MVPs or Player of the Year awards, All-Pro and (hopefully to a lesser extent) Pro Bowl nods can and probably are used by the selectors as evidence for or against them.
    It's a subjective election, so you cannot possibly say those nods mean nothing to the men in the room.

    Based on the subjective definition of "primary contribution to professional football", I can't see how the number of All-Pro awards will not be used to determine where the primary contribution was.

    Re: 2008 Hall of Famers

    I'm kind of ticked that Monk made it and Carter didn't.
    No.1, I keep thinking about how he pushed off in the playoffs against us on a typical non-call to get the go ahead score...and then went on to win the Superbowl.
    Second, Carter has more TDs, Yards, and receptions!
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!
