Hall Of Fame 2013 Class Announced: Culp In, Shields Out


The 2013 NFL Hall of Fame class has been announced.

Here are the future inductees:

Larry Allen, Chris Carter, Jonathan Ogden, Bill Parcells, Warren Sapp, Curley Culp, Dave Robinson

That means former Kansas City Chiefs guard, Will Shields, did not make the cut this year. In my admittedly biased opinion, Shiefs deserved to be a first ballot guy. The fact that he has been passed over again, while guys like Jonathan Ogden (who has a nearly identical resume to Shields) and Chris Carter got in ahead of him. Shields will have his day but I think it is an insult to his play to make him wait.

The good news is that former Chiefs defensive lineman Curley Culp was elected at long last. Culp is 66 and is will be pretty cool to see him at the induction ceremony.

    Congrats Culp

    Yes Will should have gone but he will next year no doubt. Great news for Curley and also pleased about Carter

  • Michael Shaw

    So did any of you see Inside the NFL this week. They had a big discussion with the normal guys and Jim Nantz. Jim had a great point. There are too many guys stacking up of HOF quality, especially at the WR position. They need to update the system to allow more than 7 guys in per year. I know the HOF is for the elite players, but there are a lot of guys that are going to be coming out the next few years that they need to do something.

    Just a matter of time for Wil. GBR!
