    Dawson was an outstanding center for us, the best in the business during his career. He should be a lock to get in !

    Russ Grimm from the Famed Redskin Hogs, that line was one of the best ever !

    I'd love to see Kevin get in, he had so many great years with the Rams and he was a monster when he was with us !

    I can't imagine too many people being happy if he gets in!
    Art Modell, Owner -- 1961-1995 Cleveland Browns, 1996-2003 Baltimore Ravens
    Art Monk deserves to be in.
    Has anyone heard what team Greene would go in under?
