Happy Hitler Birthday! Or ... wait, April 20th ...

Donovan McNabb: Hall of Famer (Just Ask Him)

Over the past few years, there’s been a lot of discussion about the Pro Football Hall of Fame voting process being flawed. We’ve discussed it. People thinking their specific guy (Will Shields, Jerome Bettis, Bill Parcells, Cris Carter) deserves to be there have discussed it. Even people thinking their entire league are being blacklisted discuss it. But what are some possible...
