Just moments ago, the names of seven great NFL players were called as they ready themselves for a new legacy: To be known as a pioneer and master of the game America loves.

But on a day of such excitement, players such as Curtis Martin are left to wonder. Surely being fourth in all-time rushing yards warrants a spot in the coveted NFL HOF, right?
