    Current players that will be a first ballot HOF

    All of the HOF talk ha got me thinking, besides Farve is there pretty anybody else currently playing that will be a for sure a first ballot electee, or even for that matter a no brainer to be in the Hall of Fame?

    Peyton Manning -I belive is a lock for sure probably first ballot
    Urlacher-maybe but not a first ballot
    Brady-Lock but noit sure if he is a first ballot
    Larry Allen and Will Sheilds-Probably worthy but the HOF is proving that it is hard for OL to get in at all.

    Parcels eventually
    Marvin Harrison
    LT can manage mediocre years and still get in

    Locks:
    Curtis Martin
    Marshall Faulk (has not truly retired)
    Marvin Harrison
    Morton Andersen
    Those mentioned above, with the exception of Shields.

    Potentials:
    Ray Lewis, Jonathan Ogden, Walter Jones, Shields, Champ Bailey, Lorenzo Neal

    On the way:
    Ed Reed, Chad Johnson, Shaun Alexander, LaDainian Tomlinson

    I'm sure there are others.

    forgot about LT D'oh.

    But I am curious as to why not Sheilds?

    He has been in the Chiefs' starting lineup for every game, which is a team record and the second longest consecutive starting streak in the NFL behind Brett Favre and is a 12 time Pro Bowl player

    I probably made a mistake...I'll be honest, I'm not as familiar with AFC trenches players as I am with NFC guys.

    Re: Current players that will be a first ballot HOF

    Do linemen get in on first ballots?
    LOL

    I feel like an idiot for this one, but K - Adam Vinatieri assuming he plays for another 8-10 years like other good kickers.
    The guy has the bling-bling and should have been the MVP instead of Brady for one of those SB victories.

    AV is a ?? for first ballot because he is a K, but I think it is a possibility.

    Maybe Roaf had the right idea, retire a year or two ahead of Shields, gives him a couple more chances.

    Re: Current players that will be a first ballot HOF

    What about Orlando Pace?

    Hell, if Jones and Shields are there then Pace is in front of both of them.

    Other than that:

    Favre
    Manning
    Harrison
    L.T.
    Ray Lewis

    Thats it for 1st ballot locks.

    Re: Current players that will be a first ballot HOF

    How come no one has mentioned Ryan Leaf? Seriously, Brady and Manning are a lock, and so are Ray Lewis, and Strahan. Beyond that, I don't see anyone else being "1st ballot". There are quite a few who are HOF worthy, but not 1st ballot.
