VIDEO: Former Falcon Chris Doleman Is In, But Pro Football Hall Of Fame Snubs Are Noticeable

Over at the mothership, SB Nation's Matt Ufford has some choice words for the selection committee and process for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. This year's inductees include Falcons and Vikings great Chris Doleman, but don't have a single Super Bowl winner. Certain names - Cris Carter, Bill Parcells - are growing more and more noticeable from the Hall's annual snubs, but should that take away from the current inductees, like Doleman and the Jets' Curtis Martin? Check out the video below:

While the process of selection might be debatable, the fact Atlanta is sending its second consecutive player to the Hall is nothing but a good thing. Granted, Doleman started and ended his career as a Viking, but his role on the 1995 Falcons team was key in pushing that team to a then-rare playoff appearance, something Birds fans can now luckily take for granted.
