    SUMMARY: Bruce Matthews is among 17 finalists for selection to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. This is the first year of eligibility for Matthews, who played 19 NFL seasons before retiring in 2001. He was voted to 14 Pro Bowls, tied with Merlin Olsen for the most ever by a Hall of Fame member. He also made the Pro Bowl at two positions — nine times at guard and five times at center. The final voting will be held today.

    I think he is a given. But I don't think everybody does.

    This is wonderful news. I knew he would be getting in the first time so it's nice to see it happen. Can't wait for the inductions on down the road.
