Hall of Fame Announcement Open Thread

Profootballhalloffamewebsite_medium

The NFL Network is set to make the announcement for the Hall of Fame Class of 2011 at 5 pm MST (7 pm EST). Watch it LIVE on your computer.

 

Shannon Sharpe is a Hall of Fame finalist for the third year in a row and all of us here at MHR are wishing him the best of luck. Jeff Legwold presented Shannon Sharpe's name to the Hall of Fame voters today and that will, hopefully, be enough to point the voters in the right direction and put Shannon into the Hall of Fame.

I don't think there's any debating on this site about whether or not Shannon Sharpe deserves it. The voters think he deserves it, as well. But does he deserve it more than 2/3 of the Hall of Fame finalists?

We're about to find out.
