Will do. I just assumed he already was in the HOF, I'm shocked there is even a discussion about it! Thanks for posting this.

How about this for a letter?

Dear PFWAA, remember that guy you elected to the Class Of 2010 who wore #68 for the Washington Redskins? There was this undrafted guy who played next to him. That guy was at least as important to the team's success in the 1980's as the guy you elected. I wouldn't want to namedrop but if you'd spare a few minutes to check out the game tape of the 1982, 1983, and 1987 seasons and the numbers I think you'll find his career is statistically comparable not only to the aforementioned #68 but also to a #74 of the Houston Oilers, class of 2007 and to a #77 of the New Orleans Saints, class of 2012. There is no conceivable explanation as to why perhaps the greatest undrafted offensive lineman to play the game has been overlooked for so long. Please correct this egregious injustice with the rightful election of #66 the the Pro Football Hall Of Fame. Or go to hell and die so we can get some writers with a functioning brain in your stead. Thanks for your time.

Ha....It's ironic because there's a feeling that Grimm going in has hurt Joe. We have told them about olines with 2 players in the HOF...none are as accomplished as the Hogs. All signs seem to be pointing to Pace going in this year, while he is deserving, no way he's more deserving than Joe. I think Joe get in next year if Pace goes this year. Joe only has two years left after this year to go in as a modern era HOF'er.

It's all glad-handing. We know David Elfin and Len Pasquarelli are voting for Jake because they covered his entire career. But to get some of these other writers on board you have to play the "If you vote for my guy I'll vote for your guy" game, which is why it never should have been left to the writers in the first place. The players and coaches would have far more integrity in the process than do the writers.

I'll do it.

Don't forget Jeff Bostic, though. Joe Gibbs: three Super Bowl wins with three different starting QB's and three different RB's. Only one primary WR: Art Monk, and Monk has been elected to the HoF. Only one center: Jeff Bostic.

I always remember that the NY Times evaluated the all-star Cowboys and the no-name Redskins for the NFC Championship before SB 17. Described Bostic as just a fat guy who would be pushed all over the field by the mighty Cowboys. Redskins' first offense play: John Riggins up the middle for about five yards. Would have been Bostic with Grimm and Mark May on either side.

Come to think of it, the Redskins only used two centers over 30 seasons...allowing for a three-year transition:

- Len Hauss: 1964 - 1977
- Jeff Bostic: 1980 - 1993

Bostic might have shared center with someone else in 1980. I didn't pay close attention to the OL until 1981. Seems like no one did until The Hogs were named.

1978-1980 the center was Bob Kuziel, who had been a backup behind Len Hauss since 1975. Kuziel retired after the 1980 season so Bostic got to start immediately and never looked back.

It also sucks that the vast majority of the fans voting don't know a damn thing about which of these players are Hall Of Famers.
