Your Hall Of Fame Voting – Round #2

We’ve had a chance to total up the votes from the first round of voting for the 2011 class for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Now, it’s on to the second step.  That first vote was slicing the list of modern era candidates from 15 to 10. Now, the vote is taking those remaining 10 down to five finalists.

This procedure is how the class of inductees will be selected by the Hall’s Board of Selectors, a 44-person body made up of media people from around the country. I’ve been honored to be part of the voting group for 16 elections now. In any given year the most frequently asked questions that I receive from fans are about the Hall of Fame and the process. To give everyone a chance to understand, I’m opening up the voting to readers this year. The next step is:  

  • The second vote will be cutting from 10 to 5.
  • The final vote will be on the remaining five, with a vote of yes or no on each man individually. To achieve Hall of Fame status a player must receive 80 percent of the vote, but there also must be a minimum of four or a maximum of seven persons elected, including the seniors candidates. For this exercise we are going to assume that both seniors candidates Chris Hanburger and Les Richter are voted in. So that means among the 15 modern era players a minimum of two and a maximum of five can be elected. If two players do not achieve 80 percent, then tie-breakers come into play and I won’t bother you with any of that.

Eliminated in the voting from 15 to 10 were: RB Jerome Bettis, WR Tim Brown, C Dermontti Dawson, DE/LB Chris Doleman and RB Curtis Martin.

That leaves these 10 still active: WR Cris Carter, DE Richard Dent, RB Marshall Faulk, DE Charles Haley, DT Cortez Kennedy, WR Andre Reed, OT Willie Roaf, Contributor Ed Sabol (NFL Films), CB Deion Sanders and TE Shannon Sharpe.

Polls are now open. Just post your five candidates as a comment. They need not be in any certain order. Voting runs through Tuesday, February 1 at 6 p.m. At that point, we’ll tabulate the votes and then move onto the final round.
