2012 Pro Football Hall Of Fame: Chris Doleman Thanks Everyone For His Football Success

Former Atlanta Falcons defensive end Chris Doleman was inducted into the 2012 Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night alongside three others all-time greats. Doleman spent 15 years in the NFL with a short two-year stint with the Falcons in 1994-95. One of his eight Pro Bowl selections came with the Falcons in 1995.

During his induction speech, Doleman he went through a lot of thank you's -- which took up the majority of his speech -- that ranged from former teammates, coaches, friends and associates. Family was very important for Doleman who thanked his children multiple times, and family determined where he played college football.

Doleman had numerous college offers but he opted to stay close to home and attend Pittsburgh so that his family could travel and come see his him play college football.

He may have had one of the best lines of the night by saying, "Anything you want in life you can get through sacks."
