    Monk makes the finals every year, but he never gets in. If the voters have any sense Irvin won't make it either.

    Ellard played a few years after Monk left the NFL. Perhaps he will be listed soon. I wish Art Monk would get selected. He was very good.

    I really hope monk makes it, because if he doesnt, it is going to be very very tough for isaac bruce to make it. Look at and compare the stats.

    Michael Irvin is on the list because there needs to be someone at Canton that can get great blow for the rest of the guys. What a joke. Next thing you know nate newton will get added to the list.

    When asked about how it would feel to have a bust of him, Irvin responded, "Man, I don't need to be busted again!"
