What a great day for Redskins Nation. I'm f-ing dead tired from shoveling all day but this just put me in the greatest mood. So happy right now.

By the way, we don't have a Russ Grimm avatar. How could Tom Tupa, Joe Salave'a, Blache and Vinnie have one and not Grimm?

LOL! Good one. I forgot about that. Maybe his mouthing off before last year's induction soured him in the eyes of some of the voters. Karma's a beeotch.

There no question he's going to go into that speech as sharp as a whistle.

What a great tribute to Buges that within a few weeks of his retiring the first Hog goes in.

Way to go coach.

You done good.

Awesome! Those Gibbs teams are really getting proper recognition for their greatness. Gibbs, Riggins, Monk and Grimm is solid representation. I think maybe only Jacoby is the one let deserving. And if any assistant coach ever deserved it then Bugel does.

Re: Russ Grimm Elected Into Hall of Fame Class of 2010

How accurate is the hall? I mean John Stallworth gets elected before Art Monk. And Russ Grimm, the best player on the best O-Line in history has to wait over a decade to get elected? I actually found something interesting. Joe Namaths best season is actually comparable to Cutler in 2009. So today Jay Cutler throws a bunch of picks and he's a complete bust. Joe Namath does it and he's a Hall of Famer. And don't give me that crap about good passing numbers being hard to come by from that time frame.

Bart Starr, Johnny U, and Fran Tarkenton posted at least three 90+ season. Johnny U and Bart even passed the 100 point mark a few times.

I mean I love Terry Bradshaw as a commentator in fact he should go to the hall of fame as one, but as a QB he really has no business being there

In fact if Jason Campbell plays in the 60's and 70's with the numbers he's put up over the last few years then he's a candidate as a first ballot hall of famer. Maybe Skip Bayless was right, it really is the Hall of Good.

Re: Russ Grimm Elected Into Hall of Fame Class of 2010

Was Russ really the best Hog of them all? His career as a great player made it until roughly age 27 or 28. Jacoby, I think, would get my vote as the greatest of the bunch, even though the hall is overrun with offensive tackles, and Lachey might have been even better, although he didn't have all of his very best years in Washington.

I'm happy to see the unit get recognition, but I would have much preferred them to go in together as "The Hogs" because it was truly a unit that was greater than the sum of its parts. Seeing Grimm get elected is bittersweet for me, if only because other players who deserve the honor just as much if not more probably don't get in now. It was, in my opinion, the "get a Hog in the Hall" campaign that got Grimm over the hump, and without that type of moral dilemma to push on otherwise neutral voters, now Jacoby, Lachey, and Bostic have basically no chance. And I don't really like that.

Namath gets a bad rap, but he's was actually a much better quarterback than a lot of people give him credit for.

The problem is, Namath supporters speak of him like he was better than Tarkenton, better than Starr, better than Staubach, better than Len Dawson, and he simply wasn't in that class.

But in terms of hall of fame standards, Namath takes a really big hit for his quarterback rating being roughly league average for the era instead of in line with the best statistical quarterbacks of all time. Truth is, Namath was a guy who was a standard deviation above the mean in net yards per attempt, which is a hall of fame type inclusive statistic. He fell closer to Cutler on the Cutler-McNabb sack-interception continuum (that I created just now), but that's not a bad or a good thing inherently. It just is. Namath was very deserving of his HoF nod, even if he got it for all the wrong reasons.

Bradshaw, on the other hand, is a slightly above average player who is there primarily for team-related accomplishments. The 70's Steelers really don't have a single offensive player who was a hall of famer in the truest sense. Franco Harris was probably the best player on that unit, and he was a pro bowler each of his first 9 seasons, so that's probably the best argument for a HoFer from that offense, but they did win four rings, so a whole bunch of people associated with them were getting in. Ken Stabler and Ken Anderson only wish they were so lucky.

Talking Re: Russ Grimm Elected Into Hall of Fame Class of 2010

Well deserved Russ!! This is yet another achievement that makes us proud to be part of the Skins tradition! This is a testament of how great our org. was under Beathard/Gibbs/Buges (among others) and most importantly Jack Kent Cooke(RIP), the best owner of all time!

Next up for the HOF : J.Jacoby, G.Clark, C.Mann! I know wishful thinking but what the heck!
