Wrong Steve Smith Nominated To Football Hall Of Fame

17 September, 2017, 00:59 | Author: Randy Kelley
  • The Other Steve Smith Could Be Most Underqualified Pro Football HOF Nominee Ever

The nomination list will be reduced to a semifinalist list that will be announced yet this fall, with the finalists being selected from the semifinalists later in the year.

An anchor on the Washington Redskins' "Hogs" offensive lines of the 1980s, Jacoby was a finalist for induction the previous two years but ultimately was not chosen for enshrinement.

During those golden Redskins years, Petitbon was the team's defensive coordinator.

Hinton has been selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame's preliminary ballot several years running.

From those 25 semi-finalists the committee will select the final 15 and discuss those players the Saturday before the 2018 Super Bowl in Minnesota.

Regardless, the inclusion of the "other Steve Smith" is surely a mistake on the part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and the chance of him surviving the next round of cuts are basically zero.

Four of Buffalo's six nominees played for the Bills in the early 1990s, an era in which the team appeared in the Super Bowl in four consecutive years.

Beathard was named a Contributor Finalist last month.

This year's Modern-Era nominees for the Class of 2018 is comprised of 108 players and coaches, including 53 offensive players, 38 defensive players, five special teamers and 12 coaches. Lynch was also a nine-time Pro Bowler, and he's the only Hall-eligible player with at least nine Pro Bowls and a Super Bowl title who is not already enshrined in Canton.

Wide receivers: Isaac Bruce, Donald Driver, Henry Ellard, Torry Holt, Chad Johnson, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, Sterling Sharp, Jimmy Smith, Rod Smith, Steve Smith, John Taylor, Hines Ward.

Tight end: Mark Bavaro, Ben Coates, Ferrell Edmunds, Jay Novacek.

Defensive linemen: La'Roi Glover (DT/NT), Leonard Marshall (DE/DT), Keith Millard (DT/NT/DE), Leslie O'Neal (DE), Michael Dean Perry (DT/DE), Simeon Rice (DE), Richard Seymour (DT), Neil Smith (DE), Greg Townsend (DE/NT/LB), Kyle Vanden Bosch (DE), Bryant Young (DT). Tasker, who saw some time at receiver throughout his career, is arguably the greatest special teams player to ever play in the National Football League, as he revolutionized the "gunner" position.

Kickers/punters: K Gary Anderson, P Sean Landeta, K Nick Lowery.
