I once heard the Pro Football Hall of Fame described as an assemblage of the people you could not write the history of the NFL without. So, I am at somewhat of a loss on how to proceed with my gawking disbelief regarding legendary coach Bill Parcells' exclusion.

Tale of Two Coaches: Coughlin and Belichick

On Saturday night, the Hall of Fame selection committee snubbed Bill Parcells.  Parcells, a two-time Super Bowl championship coach, was denied entry into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Perhaps voters have a short-term memory.
