Fan's Choice on the Hall of Fame

New, comment

One of the advertising promotions we have going on now is the JCPenney Van Heusen Fan's Choice. It's a poll on the players (and others) who are eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010. While it has no impact on the actual selection, I've voted to make sure the former Green Bay Packers nominated at least make it into the top 10 in the fan's choice.

WR Sterling Sharpe. Obviously he's a Packers legend, but he should be considered. His career stats aren't the biggest, since his career was cut short, but he was an All Pro in 5 of his 7 NFL seasons. 

FS LeRoy Butler. Similar to Sharpe, he was an All Pro in 4 of his first 9 NFL seasons, but the injury bug didn't strike him down until a couple years later. A member of the 1990s All Decade Team

GM Ron Wolf. C'mon all you Ted Thompson haters. Vote a real Packers GM into the hall! Full disclosure; I'm not a Ted Thompson hater, but I'd say anything to goad more people into voting for Wolf. Only Curly Lambeau and Vince Lombardi did more to build the team, and both of them are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
