Martin made the cut to the final 10 last year in his first year of eligibility and has an excellent chance be selected. When told last year he and Parcells could be going in together in 2012, he said, "That would be incredible."
After the list is cut from 10 finalists to five, the candidates are not competing against each other. The 44 voters vote yes or no on the final five and all five can get in. The voting will be held on Feb. 5 in Indianapolis, the day before Super Bowl XLVI.
