Michael Strahan, Bill Parcells among Pro Football Hall of Fame nominees

New, comments

Michael Strahan is a first-year eligible, and Bill Parcells will be on the Pro Football Hall of Fame ballot for the second time when voting occurs for the class of 2013.

Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Is Michael Strahan a first-ballot NFL Hall of Famer? We get to find out with the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2013, because the former New York Giants defensive end is one of 13 first-year eligibles on this year's ballot.

The other question is will former Giants coach Bill Parcells be enshrined? I thought Parcells was a no-brainer a year ago, when he was snubbed. Will Hall of Fame voters see the error of their ways this time?
