The 54th NFL Hall of Fame class got inducted on Saturday night, and the ceremony was highlighted by two Rams greats and one Raiders great.
Kenny “The Snake” Stabler had one of the more emotional presentations of the night. The Oakland Raiders great died last year, after waiting 27 years for enshrinement. His coach John Madden inducted him after a video tribute.
Orlando Pace became the 15th No. 1 overall selection to enter the Hall of Fame. The former Rams left tackle blocked for three-straight NFL MVPS and helped his team throw 3,000 yards 12 times, and register seven 1,000 rushers. More importantly, he helped the St. Louis Rams win a championship.
Kevin Greene, who played for the Rams, Steelers, Panthers and 49ers talked about playing against Bo Jackson and Jackie Slater in practice at the pro and college level. Greene compiled the third-most sacks in NFL history.
Packers great Brett Favre and Indianapolis Colts great Marvin Harrison both enetered the Hall of Fame as well.
Also of note, Tony Dungy became the first black head coach to enter the Hall of Fame.
