These candidates will be considered for election for the Hall in Indianapolis on February 4th by the 44-member selection committee. A minimum of four and a maximum of seven will be elected. The maximum of seven means five current players and two senior nominees. Before then I will have my own ballot, obviously I'm no member of the selection committee, on who I would vote for for the Hall of Fame.
