There isn’t too much to complain about with the 2009 HOF's results.

Bruce Smith and Rod Woodson were eligible for the Hall for the first time this year. Both were easily first ballot Hall of Famers.  

I’m very happy Ralph Wilson made the Hall of Fame. Ralph Wilson deserved to be there a long time ago and is 90 years old.

Chris Carter is an eight-time Pro Bowl selection. Those selections were all made consecutively from 1993-2000.  He is a two-time All-Pro first team selection. He is a member of the 1990s All-Decade team, an honor voted on by the Hall of Fame voters.
