    GSOT first year eligible in 2015

    First year eligibles: Isaac Bruce, Torry Holt, Edgerrin James, Ty Law, Kevin Mawae, Orlando Pace, Junior Seau, Kurt Warner

    How awesome would it be to have the rest of the GSOT in the hall of fame. If we can get the stars to align we could have Pace, Bruce, Holt, and Warner all go in together. Each of them have their own reasons for going in I hope they all can make it.

    First ballot HOF? ...maybe Warner, perhaps Pace. I'm not sure Holt or Bruce are going in soon, maybe ever.

    If Andre Reed made it in this year, Holt and Bruce are making it.

    I could make a case for all four to go in. VERY wishful thinking that they would 4 go in at the same time with it being two wide receivers in that group. But I think Holt and Bruce both deserve it.

    I just thought it was kind of cool they are all eligible this year they all retired the same year in 09.

    Bruce.....maybe never?

    Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

    Tell me your kidding, right? Number 4 all-time in yards and number 7 all-time in receptions.

    I hope you had fun on your recent trip to Colorado.

    Whats annoying is that Ty Law's key play that they will likely show to support his case for the hall will be against the Rams and should have been called back for a penalty!!

    Re: GSOT first year eligible in 2015

    Walter Jones and Jon Ogden BOTH got in on 1st ballots, and I would say Pace's career is on par with both of them.

    I think Bruce has two roadblocks in front of him: Marvin Harrison and Tim Brown. Bruce "could" leapfrog both of them next year, but I have my doubts. Holt on the other hand may be waiting for quite a while.

    As much as I love, and I mean LOVE Kurt Warner, I'm not sure he gets in any time soon. I just don't know if there's enough in his resume to get him a hall call.

    Orlando is the only potential first ballot HOF that I see there. I believe all 4 deserve it, but there is a backlog at WR right now, and I doubt Holt or Bruce will jump to the front of the line.

    You have to be retired for 5 years. He played his last game on 12/30/2007.

    I'm just curious on your thoughts about what makes you think they may never get into the HoF?

    They both have the numbers, especially Bruce. They both have a Super Bowl ring. What else do they need in your opinion?

    Those are my thoughts exactly. I said in another thread that I thought Andre Reed got in at the expense of Marvin getting first ballot entry this year. Next year I could see Marvin get in at the expense of Bruce being a 1st ballot guy. Tim Brown needs to get in also. Randy Moss and T Owens will be up soon, and the logjam at WR continues.

    I agree with you on Warner also HUb. I hope somehow he makes it, although if he didn't I wouldn't be surprised, just disappointed.

    Re: GSOT first year eligible in 2015

    Too many eligible WR's, so I think it will take some time for Bruce and Torry. Pace is probably first ballot. I think KW makes it, maybe even first ballot, based on merit and the story (stocking shelves to SB MVP).
