The 2014 class of the Pro Football Hall of Fame was just announced and punter Ray Guy was elected by the Veterans Committee. He is the first punter to be elected. Michael Strahan, Andre Reed, Walter Jones, Derrick Brooks, Aeneas Williams and Claude Humphrey were also elected.

Read friend of the program Chris Kluwe make the case for Ray Guy and explain how the Selection Committee failed him.
