Can't think of another game where it's the second quarter and I've been 33 1/2 points behind on the spread and not only end up covering but covering by 10 1/2.

Pro Football Hall of Fame Centennial Class revealed

By Grant Gordon NFL.com
Published: Jan. 15, 2020 at 08:16 a.m.
Updated: Jan. 15, 2020 at 11:50 a.m.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame Centennial Class of 2020's remaining 13 inductees -- 10 seniors and three contributors -- were revealed Wednesday on Good Morning Football. They followed the previous announcements over the weekend of Bill Cowher and Jimmy Johnson. The 15 inductees will be joined by five modern-day selections announced the day before the Super Bowl during NFL Honors on Feb. 1.

Here are the members of the Pro Football Centennial Class of 2020:

Jim Covert, OT, 1983-1990 Chicago Bears

They called him "Jimbo," and in the shadow of one of the most famed defensive teams of all-time, Jim Covert was an offensive standout who paved the way for all-time great Walter Payton when the Bears won Super Bowl XX. A two-time All-Pro selection, Covert was the sixth overall pick in the 1983 NFL Draft, the No. 13 Bear of all-time in the franchise's top 100 list and a member of the NFL's 1980s All-Decade Team.

Winston Hill, OT, 1963-1976 New York Jets/1977 Los Angeles Rams

Protecting Joe Namath's backside autumn after autumn, Winston Hill was a four-time AFL All-Star and four-time Pro Bowl pick. The left tackle also earned three All-Pro nods during a decorated 15-season career that at one point boasted a string of 174 starts. The Texas native was a crucial cog in the Jets winning Super Bowl III.

Harold Carmichael, WR, 1971-1983 Philadelphia Eagles/1984 Dallas Cowboys

There are prototypical wide receivers and there is Harold Carmichael, a Philly favorite who boasted a 6-foot-8, 225-pound frame. A four-time Pro Bowler, three-time All-Pro and NFL 1970s All-Decade Team honoree, the big-bodied Eagle produced three 1,000-yard seasons and proved pivotal in Philadelphia advancing to its first Super Bowl in 1980. He ended his days with the Eagles as the career leader in every major receiving statistic and for his career had 590 catches for 8,985 yards and 79 touchdowns.

Duke Slater, OT, 1922 Milwaukee Badgers/1922-25 Rock Island Independents/1926-1931 Chicago Cardinals

A transformative and hugely important figure in the history of football, Duke Slater was the first African-American lineman in league chronicle. A standout on both sides of the ball, Slater was a multiple-time All-Pro.

Ed Sprinkle, DE/LB, 1944-1955 Chicago Bears

A two-way player at the onset of his NFL career, Ed Sprinkle's reputation truly grew and remained due to his defensive prowess. Known for his hard-charging ways and aggressive play, Sprinkle helped the Bears to a 1946 NFL Championship, was a four-time Pro Bowl pick and was a member of the 1940s All-Decade Team.

Steve Sabol, Administrator/President, 1964-2012 NFL Films

A memorable voice who told the tale of autumns past to NFL fans, Steve Sabol took over as the president of NFL Films in 1985 from his father Ed, who created the company. During his time with NFL Films, Steve Sabol won more than 40 Emmy Awards and oversaw 107 Emmy wins for NFL Films.

Alex Karras, DT, 1958-1962, 1964-1970 Detroit Lions

One of the NFL alumni's most famous faces on the big and small screen, Alex Karras was as destructive on the NFL field as he was noticeable in projects such as "Blazing Saddles" and the TV show "Webster." Through his career with the Lions, the 1958 first-round pick was a four-time Pro Bowl pick, a three-time All-Pro and an NFL 1960s All-Decade Team selection.

Bobby Dillon, S, 1952-1959 Green Bay Packers

A ball hawk in the Packers' defensive backfield for eight seasons, Bobby Dillon tallied 52 career interceptions during his days in Green Bay. He had an eye-popping nine picks in three individual seasons. For five straight years, Dillon was a Pro Bowler with three of those seasons accompanied by All-Pro accolades.

Donnie Shell, S, 1974-1987 Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steel Curtain defense was loaded with talented standouts and Donnie Shell was one of them. For 14 seasons, Shell patrolled the defensive backfield, winning four Super Bowls, nabbing five Pro Bowl selections and garnering 51 interceptions. Shell's interception total was the most all-time for a strong safety upon his retirement and is currently tied for 32nd.

George Young, Contributor/General Manager, 1968-1974 Baltimore Colts, 1975-78 Miami Dolphins, 1979-1997 New York Giants, 1998-2001 National Football League

One of the most respective NFL executives of his day, George Young aided mightily in the Giants winning two Super Bowls during his time as general manager from 1979-1997. Thereafter, he was the NFL's senior vice president of football operations from 1998-2001.

Cliff Harris, S, 1970-1979 Dallas Cowboys

Throughout the 1970s, Cliff Harris was a phenomenal constant in the defensive backfield for America's Team. Amazingly, Dallas made it to the postseason in nine of Harris' 10 seasons, including five Super Bowl appearances with two victories. A Pro Bowler in six straight seasons starting in 1974 and going through the final campaign of his career, Harris was a three-time All-Pro who tallied 29 interceptions and 18 fumble recoveries.

Mac Speedie, End, 1946-1952 Cleveland Browns

Bestowed with a fitting name for his future NFL prowess, Mac Speedie was a receiver before his time. Named to the NFL's 1940s All-Decade Team, the six-time All-Pro led the league in receptions on four occasions and twice was led in receiving yards. In 1947 and 1949, he surpassed the 1,000-yard receiving barrier.

Paul Tagliabue, Commissioner, 1989-2006 NFL

The NFL's leading man for parts of three decades, Paul Tagliabue led the league into the 21st century and oversaw its expansion from 28 to 32 teams. During his time, the Jacksonville Jaguars, Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans and reborn Cleveland Browns all came to be. He also navigated the NFL's expansion into Europe and helmed the league through the most arduous times such as the tragedies of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina.

That was me. The other way. I was already counting my money. The line kept moving and I kept putting more and more on it. Then it kept dropping. And dropping and well, you know the rest.

One of the strangest games I've ever watched. Kind of funny.

Yeah, I had Houston.

You just knew though, Houston was going to blow it at some point...because, well that is their nature, that team. I so badly wanted to take KC in the 2nd H if they had been down at HT, but that went out the window when the Chiefs actually took the lead before HT and then the 2nd H line was actually higher than the net game line was. So I was stuck and just hoped for a back door or something.

Bill O'Brien isn't the right coach to get that team anywhere.

Should be one heck of a SB. Both offenses can light it up, and quickly at that, but SF D looks a little better than KC's. Still, Mahomes is the best player on the field no matter what. Going to be a good game to watch.

KC in a high scoring close one.

A wonderful Packers season comes to an end. Bummer the way it ended, but unsurprising to most Packers fans. Some how they were only down 2 scores with 8 minutes to go, but their D just couldn't stop SF's running game.

On paper, it's a season to appreciate - especially after missing the playoffs for 2 consecutive seasons. Swept the division, beat old foes like the Cowboys, Giants, Broncos, and Seahawks, and made it to the NFC Championship. It was never really a season to get too excited about, there was never a defining victory - wins often came ugly. But they were wins. All in all, you couldn't ask for a better rebuild season for a first-year Head Coach. Rodgers needs some more receivers and the defense needs some more play makers.

I'm actually excited for the SB, Mahomes is the most exciting player in the league and SF's D is one of the best. SF's offense is old school run it down your throat, pass if we have to. Should be a great game. I'm rooting for KC.

Looking forward to the Super Bowl, two teams that I wouldn't mind from a general fanbase viewpoint, see come out victorious.

Saw the line bump to KC -2 1/2 yesterday, so I bought half a point to get SF +3. My biggest mistake wasn't jumping on the over when it first came out at 51, up to 55 now, I real decent in between chance now gone.

Among those that will have $$$ on the game, who do you like?

I hope it's a really entertaining matchup, unlike so many previous SBs.

coot, the line is now down to one. At least what I saw. It is good that you are getting a field goal. I don't think the line is going to matter.

No idea what to do on the over/under.

I took the Chiefs straight up with a buddy of mine. Hey, it was his call on that.

And I certainly agree that I hope the game is fun. A blowout at halftime will have people turning the channel!

I think if Mahomes can drive on SF's defense, they will win. 49ers won't be able to run like they did against the Packers and will force Garrapolo to actually play QB.

Eli Manning quietly retired this week. 2 epic underdog Super Bowls and not much else in a 16 year career. The Giants were actually one of the worst teams of the past decade, so it's not all on him, but he threw a lot of INTs. I don't think he should be in the HOF, but those 2 Super Bowls (and being a Manning) might get him in.

Hey if SF can win with the QB only throwing eight times, that's quite impressive. I just hope it's an entertaining game as I mentioned.

Regarding Eli, that is interesting. As the old thought goes, QBs get too much credit for wins and too much blame for losses. Is he a HOFer? I don't know. If I had a vote, I would say no but I don't really have a problem if he gets in, which I think he will.

Never said they’d win easy, just that it might be the key battle between two great teams. Garrapolo played well in back-to-back games against the Saints and Ravens, and he threw a lot more than he had to against the Packers.

My gf really enjoyed the pick 'ems this season. Didn't quite get to .500 but still had fun and she learned some things about football and that's cool.

She likes Jimmy G and SF.

Take KC.

Well since your GF likes San Fran I guess I will go with the offense and take KC. For those with $$$ on it, I don't think the line has moved all week. I figured it would move up with folks betting KC but I guess not. Take the BBQ and the Chefs!

Well, the better QB won. Mahomes shook off 2 INTs and almost lost a fumble to seal the comeback. Shanahan giving KC plenty of time to do it didn't hurt - why not ride Mostert down the stretch? Give some credit to KC's defense, they put the ball back in Mahomes hands. That throw on 3rd was super clutch. Solid game, fun season.

Well, I guess I have to come here and bow to nebish, since he won both of the NFL pools. I was 2nd in both. I had him in the straight up pool until the last few weeks....

Luckily, I can once again gloat about beating DanB - you would think that if you were going to use the name kicksangsass, you wouldn't end up in last place in both pools.....

Or maybe you would at least take the time to fill out a bracket each week......

ABBSpread:

neb 139-107
Sang 123-124
BigVee 121-124
Piacere 117-127
SteelCurtain 75-170
Kicksangsass 75-170

ABBWP:

neb 169-83
Sang 162-91
Kicksangsass 93-157


Thanks to all who played!

NFL...My favorite scripted/rigged sport

The QB's of today are pampered and records will mean nothing anymore.It is funny watching defenders chase the guy with the ball. Seems more effort is placed on swatting at the ball than trying to tackle anyone. I appreciate the athleticism, but it almost like watching men compete against women in boxing or track n field. The uniform looks right, but something is wrong.

The NFL has admitted to such, so no need to get any panties ruffled over anything
