La’Roi Glover, Neil Smith and Richmond Webb were NFL all-decade selections, who have never been Hall of Fame semifinalists, much less finalists. They deserve better fates — as do Lomas Brown, Jimmie Giles and Wilber Marshall.
Former defensive tackle La’Roi Glover was a six-time Pro Bowler, a four-time All-Pro and an all-decade choice. So how or why was he left off the Hall of Fame’s preliminary list of 94 modern-era candidates for the Class of 2017? Good question.
