He still isn't in

Can we talk about the fact that Don Coryell STILL is not in the HOF? Dude pretty much set the foundations of the modern offense.

We've yet to see a QB being as dominant as that future HOFer
And no, not those two. The one I'm talking about already retired ...

Honestly I didn't know he wasn't. I could have sworn he was. That's ridiculous. Do you think he'll be a part of the 2020 class?

The NFL should rename itself the Hall of Champions. Thats pretty much all you have to be to get in.

1-back offense
Clustering one side of the field
TE as a weapon in the pass game

That's ALL Coryell. A MUCH greater innovator than Walsh.

This is a crime against humanity.

Shame on the voters.

You mean this HOF class? Definitely no. They already have 2 coaches in Bill Cowher (great choice) and Jimmy Johnson (also great choice), and I don't think they'll just throw a third coach. Maybe he'll make it as a contributor at some point in the future, but is still so, so confusing the fact that he isn't in.

Cowher and JJ seem like a publicity stunt for the HOF.

Stack both of them up against Mike Holmgren.

Holmgren reshaped, not just 1, but TWO dormant franchises
3 Super Bowls, 1 Title, nearly the first to win 2 with different teams

What Jimmeh built is more impressive, but he bailed at their zenith, and had nowhere near the same level of success in Miami.

Cowher also bailed on a team near the top, then never coached again.

I'm glad Cowher and Jimmeh made it. Honestly. But this seems like a stunt to me. And an unnecessary one at that. This class was already a spectacle. They didn't need to draw more attention to it.

With a 3 and 6 playoff record, he'll never make it.
