Vermeil will be the first of this list to make it in. It would be nice to have Vincent and Cunningham in, but that will take some time, if it ever does happen.

Would love for Brown to make it, but that seems like a stretch. He was on pace for glory though.

No one above will get in. The only eagles who deserves real consideration is Harold Carmichael and eventually Donnovan Mcnabb. Dawk is first ballot!

There hasn't been a true Safety enter the HOF since 1988, i don't know if Dawkins makes it as a first ballot... might take awhile.

It's just the way they vote, not sure how they do it but seems flawed.

While I agree, I think Dawkins was enough of a game changer/pioneer for Safeties.

I think Cunningham has a slim, outside chance.

The Era of Reed, Dawkins and Polomalu will change all of that eventually. I agree it might take time considering players like Lynch and Harrison are still floating around out there with Rings and resumes as well but with Dawk retiring before the two above (Ed/Troy) by maybe 2+years gives him the first chance among that trio to get in. Dawkins will be looked at IMO much like the Bills trio who never really won anything but dominated their position/division in Kelly, Bruce and Thurman.

Yeah, but again, slim, outside chance. Not having a ring really sucks for most of these guys.

3 INTs and one puke in the Superbowl loss won't help him either.

5 Less NFCCG and 1 less SB appearance then all but secures Cunningahm never making it then. Maybe the voters will realize Mcnabb and the eagles only lost do to Spy Gate and give him that pass. Wink
