Time to take a look at the results on our Call It poll, which asked you to vote for the NFC South player with the best chance at making the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

More than 5,100 of you voted and the winner was New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees with 42 percent of the vote. Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez was second at 35 percent and Tampa Bay cornerback Ronde Barber third at 14 percent. Carolina’s Steve Smith collected 6 percent of the vote and New Orleans safety Darren Sharper got 3 percent.

I’m with you on this one. I voted for Brees. As I said in this column, Brees is already on his way to a Hall of Fame career. At 31, he’s still got plenty of time left in his career. As long as he continues to put up numbers, he should have no problem making the Hall of Fame.

I’ll continue to discuss the chances of Gonzalez, Barber, Smith and Sharper reaching the Hall of Fame in the coming weeks.
