Nice picks, Jim... I know some people would demand that Bernie Kosar make the list, but I have no problem with Ryan or Sipe getting the nod.. Same could be said for RBs Mike Pruitt, Byner, and Mack...

Tom Deleone could be an alternate on the O-line, and Dick "BamBam" Ambrose at LB... not sure if either were good enough to replace the guys you listed though...

And I know your feelings toward "old" old-timers, which is why I'm assuming you didn't include Dante Lavelli or Mac Speedie....

Both of the receivers added. The Browns quartet wasn't strong enough to keep them out.

Well, you didn't have to go THAT far.... I've always felt Gary Collins was somewhat underrated. 70 TDs on just 331 receptions is an impressive total. Especially when you figure that the great Ozzie Newsome caught exactly twice as many balls but scored just 47 times.

I may be wrong- isn't Dawson the only player who showed up after the team was restored?

That sounds right. Tangentially related, I only update the kickers every other year, so I won't look at them until after 2014.
