HOF has an AFC West feel
By Bill Williamson
Take some time on your Saturday to check out the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
There is an AFC West feel to the ceremony, that begins at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN. Former Denver running back Floyd Little is finally being inducted.
Little recently said he gave up on ever getting inducted. But he is in Canton, Ohio awaiting induction. Well deserved.
Even the headliner of the 2010 class, Jerry Rice, has AFC West history. He was with Oakland for three-plus seasons and was very productive for a time for the Silver and Black. Rice retired in the preseason of 2005 as a member of the Denver Broncos, but he never played in a regular-season game for Denver.
Congrats to Little and Rice and the rest of the 2010 HOF class.
