AFC West: Paul Lowe

The Professional Football Researchers Association has announced its final candidates for election into the Hall of Very Good. The group honors players and coach who had accomplished careers, yet who are not in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It began in 2003.

The Class of 2011 will be announced by the end of the year.

Three players with AFC West ties are among the finalists. They are former Raiders’ receiver Cliff Branch, former Chargers’ and Chiefs’ running back Paul Lowe and the late former Denver coach Lou Saban.

The late former San Diego coach Don Coryell was elected to the Hall of the Very Good last year.

My thoughts on this honor? Why not? Of course, it doesn’t carry the weight and prestige of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. But any honor former these former NFL contributors is a nice gesture.
