The NFL Hall of Fame is a very exclusive club reserve for true legends and its annual exhibition game is not just any NFL pre-season game.

The game is played at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, which is located near the Hall of Fame building in Canton, Ohio.

The birthplace of Pro Football.

Just 310 players, coaches and other noted members have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in the NFL’s history. By the time this year’s inductees take up residence in the Hall, that number will rise to 318.

It is traditionally the first game played in the NFL preseason for any given year, marking the end of the NFL’s six-month off-season and the eyes of the entire country are going to be fix on all the August 1st thru 4th weekend ceremonies.

Philadelphia Eagles’ Brian Dawkins was inducted last year and “Weapon X” send a very heartfelt shout out to Eagles Nation during his speech.

The Hall of Fame is a museum that celebrates the entire history of the sport. But, more than that, being inducted into the Hall of Fame represents the highest honor a player, coach or team owner can be granted during their careers.

One of the great things about Hall of Fame weekend is the large number of living members who return to Canton to welcome the new class.

And that’s why all eyes round NFL circles will be on the birthplace of American football, this weekend.

The Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos will have the honor facing each other in the 2019 Hall of Fame Game on Thursday, August 1st at 8 pm.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame’s 2019 Class:

Tony Gonzalez
Ed Reed
Kevin Mawae
Champ Bailey
Ty Law

These are all modern-era players and…

Gonzalez, Reed and Bailey were inducted in their first year eligibility.

Johnny Robinson, Pat Bowlen and Gil Brand, also made the cut.

****************************************************

Former Oakland Raider’s head coach Tom Flores did not make the cut once again and at this point everyone around the NFL recognizes that the members of the selection committee have an obvious personal bias against Tom Flores.

Tom Flores has four Super Bowl rings and he is one of only two men in the entire 100 year history of the National Football League that has ever been able to accomplish that feat.

Coach Flores won a Super Bowl as a player, assistant coach and two as a head coach, but the selection committee ignores all of his accomplishments and continues to purposely deny him enshrinement.
