I never doubted he'd get in. Knowing the way the HOF sometimes snubs great players I thought he could be one of them.

Interesting, and free, article from DK Sports. We've always thought Troy was estranged. It wasn't that way at all.

I had little doubt but glad it's official. Awesome to see such a strong Steelers presence this year.

Fantastic and well deserved for an awesome player, and an awesome human being in general. A beast on the field, and as humble and caring a person as you're going to find off of it. Truly a privilege to have watched him play. Will always be one of my all time favorite Steelers.

That all being said, boy do I feel bad for Alan Faneca right now.

If you watch any interview with Troy and didn't know he played football. If you weren't a football fan. Could you guess what he did for a living? I don't think I could. He was the human version of the Tasmanian Devil on the field.Off the field he is as fine a man as you could meet.

I read an article that theorized why Faneca didn't get in yet and it basically pointed out how few guards make it in.There are 46 modern day O-lineman in the HOF. Only 9 played guard. 5 others played guard/tackle and Bruce Mathews played G/T/C.

Here is a good article explaining why Troy has stayed away from the team since he retired:

What is most maddening is that they voted in Steve Hutchinson of the Seahawks who played less games, was 1st Team All Pro 5 times to Faneca's 6, was in the Pro Bowl 7 times to Faneca's 9 times, and who lost a Super Bowl rather ironically to Faneca's team. That's just criminal. Basically they refused to vote Faneca in because they were already voting in Cowher, Shell, and Polamalu. So a player with a blatantly lesser resume gets in and Faneca could end up waiting years longer now because of it. Especially considering Peyton Manning, Charles Woodson, and Calvin Johnson are going to be eligible I believe come 2021, in addition to all the other players who are currently waiting.

I know. We should be out front as far as HOF inductees.
