San Francisco 49ers beat writer Matt Maiocco put together another great podcast, this one with several different guests: The Hall of Fame Voters.
Terrell Owens will be going to Canton, but John Lynch is up short, and many may wonder what led to the decisions of both. It’s also got some interesting reasoning as to why Owens had to wait a couple years before being inducted.
