After casually reading the headline, I immediately assumed Orlando Pace and Tommie Frazier were amongst those 17. After clicking through, I quickly became confused, then a little bit angry, and finally dismissive.
Let me take you through those three steps real quick.
The first handful of articles I read were in essence puff pieces on Jimmy Johnson. He was one of the individuals elected (rightfully so) yesterday. The pieces focused more on the possibility of him coaching again. Under normal circumstances, focusing on the remote chance that he would coach again (Joe Gibbs aside, he’s been out of the league for 13 freakin’ years), would strike me as odd.

The Bears today signed third-round draft pick Brandon Hardin, who is transitioning from cornerback to safety this season. All six of Chicago’s 2012 selections are now under contract.
Since being drafted 14th overall in 2008, Chris Williams has played every offensive line spot for the Bears, except for center, with minimal success anywhere. Now it appears that Williams, their starting left guard last season, will be going back to where it all started for him, left tackle. Williams would provide competition for J’Marcus Webb, an athletic kid that offensive coordinator...
