2012 NFL Hall Of Fame: Curtis Martin In, Bill Parcells Left Out

The 2012 Pro Football Hall of Fame Class has officially been announced and former New England Patriots running back, Curtis Martin, is one of the newest members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Martin, along with Jack Butler, Dermontti Dawson, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy and Willie Roaf make up the 2012 class. Former Patriots coach, Bill Parcells, was among the 15 modern-day finalists and made the second cut, when the list dwindled to 10, but failed to make the top five, thus not making the Hall of Fame this year.

Martin was drafted by the Patriots in in 1995 and spent his first three seasons in New England. He won the 1995 AP Rookie of the year and is fourth all-time in rushing yards.

Bill Parcells coached the Patriots for three seasons, from 1993-1996, including a Super Bowl appearance in his final season.
