Pollard, Young, Marino, Friedman: Your NFL Hall of Fame Class of 2005. The stain that was the absence of Fritz Pollard, the NFL's first black player and head coach, is finally cleansed. He's joined by three QBs, my personal favorite Steve Young, Dan "No Ring" Marino and Bennie Friedman (the other Veteran's Committee selection). The one person left out who I'd put in, in an instant, is George Young while Harry Carson. one of Young's great players, was a rejected finalist for the sixth year despite requesting he not be considered.
