Pro Football Hall of Fame welcomes 8 new members

Pro Football Hall of Fame welcomes 8 new members

Instead, he took a final shot that the writers, stating that their interests did not line up with that of the Hall of Fame. He made such an immediate pro impact he was the 1975 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, and went on to five All-Pro seasons as one of the game's most versatile linebackers.

The former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver boasts 14 seasons, six pro bowls, 15,292 receiving yards and 156 touchdowns.

A few minutes before Lewis took the stage, Randy Moss made quick reference to the linebacker, lamenting that Lewis' Ravens kept Moss' San Francisco 49ers from winning Super Bowl XLVII, in Moss' final National Football League season.

Sure enough, Owens didn't hold back during his speech. The university named a street after the Hall of Fame receiver. And during the enshrinement ceremony on Saturday night in Canton, we got a look at the new HOF members' busts. My Pop Warner team, Forest View, they have a Hall of Famer. Here's why Dallas isn't doing the same for Terrell Owens.

"It's typical Brian", said team chairman George H. McCaskey "that in the parade when he could have had all the attention focused on himself, he was wearing a Walter Payton jersey, saluting the greatest player of all time and tipping his cap to all those that came before him". He also wore a "C" for Chattanooga pin on each lapel.

"The two pillars of my life are family and football", said Urlacher who went on to thank his late mother for showing him the value of hard work.

He said: "I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means". This achievement is the evidence of Apple's long-standing dominance in the industry.

"This is for you", Owens said.

Near the end of his speech, Owens got the crowd involved.

"We have more commonalities than differences". Owens only trails the great Jerry Rice (22,895), his former teammate with the San Francisco 49ers.

A first-year nominee, Lewis was selected 26th overall in the 1996 draft - what were other teams thinking? He understands that some people were surprised by Owens' decision. They were going to mail it to him Saturday. "Me personally, I'm excited that he is doing it here".

Oh and T.O. also mentioned the seven other Hall of Fame inductees by name.
