    Sid Gillman is the innovator of the modern day passing game, Don Coryell was the architect and aerial conductor that changed the way teams pass the ball. Sid is in the HOF and Don isn't. Between the two, what is called the "west coast offense" the NFL even managed to screw that up was born. It's still alive and well today and the coaching tree and the amount of Lombardi's collected have direct blood lines back to both men. If Don Coryell is not "elected" into the HOF this year, you couldn't pay me enough to enter the damn place.

    I think Don is a longshot this year, I wish it weren't so. Parcells is a finalist, so he will probably get in. Tagliabue is also a possibility. I can't see them going with three non-players. The first year Don was a finalist he should have gone in. A couple guys that year were great players to be sure, but not guys that absolutely had to be in that year. I think Ricky Jackson got in on all the Saints hype surrounding the Super Bowl win. Don should have gone in that year so they could honor him while he was still alive, and it will always piss me off that he won't be around to enjoy it.

    At the very least a popularity contest.

    Bill Parcells before Coryell?

    That's like putting John Mayer above Stevie Ray. :sick:

    F the NFL HOF. Coryell should have been added before his death.
