NFL Hall of Fame: Marshall Faulk is in!

Congrats to Marshall Faulk on joining the ranks of the NFL Hall of Fame. 

The former St. Louis Rams running back was without a doubt one of the best. ever. And now he's a first ballot Hall of Famer. 

I imagine I speak for every single reader here that Faulk is one of my favorite all time players, for the Rams or any other team. Faulk finished his career with 12,279 rushing yards, 100 rushing TDs, 767 receptions, 6,875 receiving yards and 36 receiving TDs. He was a seven-time Pro Bowl player and a starter for three consecutive years between 1999-2001. He holds the Rams franchise record for rushing TDs with 58.

Congrats again to Marshall Faulk. 

Also making the cut for the NFL Hall of Fame in tonight's LeBron-esque announcement on the NFL Network: Richard Dent, Chris Hanburger, Les Richter, Ed Sabol, Deion Sanders, and Shannon Sharpe.

(Note from 3k: Van beat me to the punch as I was putting together a similar post.  It should be noted how special of a Ram Les Richter was.  Sure, he played before 99.9% of TSTers started watching football, but the fact that he was inducted today deserves notice from this community.  For such a short career in which he opened with kicking duties on top of his linebacking responsibilities, Richter was stupidly feared.  His stats are likely lost to history, but his reputation certainly won't be.)
