    Will Cris carter make the HOF this year?

    Well, he is on the list of finalists and it looks like he has a pretty good shot to me.

    Thoughts?

    I still can't fathom how two receivers not named Jerry Rice have made it in since Carter has been eligible.

    Agreed. His whole career it seemed like he was the 2nd best WR behind Rice.

    Truth is it's about politics. Carter pissed off members of the media years ago and they won't let it go.

    The fact Michael Irvin got in on the first attempt with 65 career TDs and Carter doesn't with 130 speaks volumes.

    But all he did was catch Touchdowns. :P

    Yup. Volumes about Irvin's three Super Bowl rings and Carter's zero.

    Only 5 modern-era players can be elected in any given year.

    From the list of 15 finalists, there are two absolute locks for induction this year: Deion Sanders and Marshall Faulk.

    So, that leaves 3 spots open. My guess is those three will be: Shannon Sharpe, Dermontti Dawson and Carter. Ed Sabol SHOULD make it, as NFL Films has had as much impact on the game becoming the number one sport in the USA as any individual player or executive, but I doubt he will.

    Dent and Doleman are also worthy candidates, as is, perhaps, Andre Reed.

    And I don't think either of the veteran's committee guys will make it. C'mon - Chris Hanburger??
