    Steelers' Grimm finalist for Pro Football Hall of Fame
    Wednesday, January 10, 2007
    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    No Steelers player made the cut of the final 15 modern era finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but one Steelers coach did.

    Russ Grimm, an NFL all-1980s guard with the Washington Redskins, was named a finalist for the third straight year. Last year, he reached the final 10.

    Grimm is the only member of the famed Hogs offensive line that helped deliver three Redskins Super Bowl victories.

    Of particular disappointment to the Steelers is that their former center Dermontti Dawson did not reach the final 17, which includes two senior candidates. He was a semifinalist for the second time in his second year of eligibility.

    The Hall of Fame board of selectors will meet Feb. 3 in Miami to select the 2007 class that will contain a minimum of three and a maximum of six.

    The 17 finalists:

    Fred Dean -- Defensive End -- 1975-1985 San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers
    Richard Dent -- Defensive End -- 1983-1997, Chicago Bears, 49ers, Indianapolis Colts, Philadelphia Eagles
    Russ Grimm -- Guard -- 1981-1991 Washington Redskins
    Ray Guy -- Punter -- 1973-1986 Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders
    Gene Hickerson -- Guard -- 1958-1973 Cleveland Browns
    Michael Irvin -- Wide Receiver -- 1988-1999 Dallas Cowboys
    Bob Kuechenberg -- Guard -- 1970-1984 Miami Dolphins
    Bruce Matthews -- Guard, Tackle, Center -- 1983-2001 Houston Oilers/Tennessee Oilers/Titans
    Art Monk -- Wide Receiver -- 1980-1995 Redskins, New York Jets, Eagles
    Andre Reed -- Wide Receiver -- 1985-2000 Buffalo Bills, Redskins
    Charlie Sanders -- Tight End -- 1968-1977 Detroit Lions
    Paul Tagliabue -- NFL Commissioner -- 1989-2006
    Derrick Thomas -- Linebacker -- 1989-1999 Kansas City Chiefs
    Thurman Thomas -- Running Back -- 1988-2000 Bills, Dolphins
    Andre Tippett -- Linebacker -- 1982-1993 New England Patriots
    Roger Wehrli -- Cornerback -- 1969-1982 St. Louis Cardinals
    Gary Zimmerman -- Tackle -- 1986-1997 Minnesota Vikings, Denver Broncos
    This could be quite a year for Grimm if he becomes the HC of the Steelers and is inducted into the HOF!

    Art Monk
    Bob Kuchenberg
    Derrick Thomas
