Next Saturday we get to see 8 more gridiron giants inducted as part of the NFL Hall of Fame 2019 Class.  This week we cover a brief overview of 4 of the members being inducted on August 3rd.  The episode covers the players in alphabetic order.  Here are the first 4 members:

Champ Bailey (modern) – cornerback for Washington Redskins (1999 – 2003) and Denver Broncos (2004 – 2013)

Pat Bowlen (contributor) – Denver Broncos owner from 1984 until his death in 2019

Last week was the Pro Football Hall of Fame 2018 Recap.  In this episode, I also gave a quick overview of how players are voted into the Hall.  I recommend checking this episode out before listening to this week’s episode.

    Great Podcast. Lot’s of good Gee Whiz info. Real Trivia Quiz stuff.
    Oh, and I did some research. That Tie by the Broncos you mention was in 1987, 17-17 against the Packers.
