Why Richard Dent has yet to become a Hall of Famer is crazy. Every time I see a top list of whatever Dent's name pops up. I know his time will come but come on he was great for the majority of his career.

That's kind of funny. Neil Hayes misspelled "it" in writing Si misspelled "Bronko!"

Best news? The SI jinx won't hit any of these players!
