Ogden on the first ballot surprised me. Very consistent but I assumed they'd make him wait a few years.
Sapp was incredibly disruptive in his prime. In those games against Favre, Sapp was so frantic and energized it was like a different species. And he did it at a spot where it's extremely difficult to dominate via the pass rush, with so many double teams and an occasional triple team. The outside guys have a considerably easier time. Haley wasn't in Sapp's league.
I love how Parcells is dismissed as yesterday's NFL. Meanwhile, during that same time period we were stupid enough to put together a team better suited to Tutu Goodell's NFL. An unforced error if there ever was one. If Parcells had emulated Shula in the '80s and built a pantyhose passing team he never would have sniffed the playoffs in the brutal NFC.
Two Super Bowl wins in that time frame was certainly worthy of Hall of Fame. Particularly the way he accomplished it, patiently moving up the ladder for the first one, and then overcoming an injury to his starting quarterback for the second one, winning the NFL Championship Game on the road as underdog against two-time defending San Francisco, quarterbacked by perhaps the greatest player ever at the position, and following it up by defeating Buffalo as a 7.5 point underdog. That was the best of the four Bills teams, and they were yet to be shellshocked and fragile.
