A little story about Warner's experience at Hy Vee.

certainly an amusing piece (as was the blog entry below it about how the group stopped in Galena on their way from Chicago to CF. not sure how they ended up in Iowa City, but anyway...)

He fell short this year but finished in the top 10.

HOF Class of 2016: DeBartolo, Dungy, Favre, Greene, Harrison, Pace, Stabler & Stanfel.

Making it to the final cut of modern candidates the vote puts him in a good spot for next year.

Anyone know who presented to the voters for Warner? I've read that the discussion following presentation went just over 27 minutes for Warner, one of the longer ones (DeBartlo, Jr., went 50+, Owens 43+, Greene 27+ were longer discussions).

As for presentations, NFLN reported that the person presenting the nonimation for Favre said, "Brett Favre," and dropped the mic.

I think Warner goes in next year. Along with TO as well.

There was no way they were going to put Warner in the same year as Favre.

They typically only put in one modern era QB a year. With the timing of Favre and Warner's careers overlapping as they have...plus the little bit of history they have with each other...they wouldn't put them in at the same time. It would take away a bit of the spotlight from Favre and the NFL won't do that.

I think Kurt knew that's how this would go down. But he's positioned for a 2017 induction.
