Hall of Fame Voting Open Thread

Tonight is the voting and announcement of the 2012 inductees into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, this August. Two men with significant ties to the Jets have a shot.

One is Bill Parcells, who served as head coach from 1997 to 1999. He took over after the Rich Kotite disaster and restored the franchise's credibility, getting to the AFC Championship Game in 1998. After successful stints with the Giants and the Patriots, his success with the Jets enhanced his legacy further.

More significant is a man Parcells brought to the Jets, Curtis Martin. Martin, the five time All Pro, 2004 NFL Rushing Champion, and 10 time 1,000 yard rusher, was a Hall of Famer on the field. Even greater, though, were his class and grace in the locker room and off the field.

I will not get my hopes up for Curtis because this entire system is painfully flawed. There are ridiculous artificial caps on the number of players who can make it, and many deserving people have to wait years and years due to the subjectivity of writers.

You can watch the proceedings on NFL Network or on nfl.com.
