The 11th Hour

The time has come.  Tomorrow (the 25th), the Hall of Fame Seniors Committee meets to determine the final 2 Seniors candidates that will be part of the final 17 candidates that the Hall of Fame writers vote on.  We desperately want and need Floyd "The Franchise" Little to get a chance at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  He means so much to the Broncos franchise today (which wouldn't be here without him) and we want Floyd to get into the Hall of Fame.

If you are new to the efforts of the MHR Denver Broncos Hall of Fame Committee, please go here for an introduction, go here for more about our efforts regarding Floyd, and go here, here, and here to see our previous cries for help.

So we have one more day to hit these writers via email and Twitter, and we want them to know how important Floyd Little is to us as Broncos fans!  So use the emails found below, read the links we provided, and get inspiration from our templates, and send out an email to all of the writers!

Dear Mr. [Sportswriter],

I am writing you today to ask you to please put Floyd Little into the final 2 candidates chosen by the Hall of Fame Seniors committee.  Without Floyd Little, there would be no Denver Broncos franchise, his impact was that profound, and that's why he's nicknamed "The Franchise".  He carried horrible Denver teams and brought fans into the seats and finished his career ranked 6th all-time in rushing yards.  The Pro Football Hall of Fame consists of great players and players who had a great impact on the league and where it is today.  Floyd is both of those and I feel that he represents everything that is good and right with the Denver Broncos and the NFL and he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.

Thanks!
