News | Washington Commanders - 2017 Could Be Joe Jacoby's Year For Hall of Fame


With the 2016 Hall of Fame Class already enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, it's time to set our sights for the next group of members to have their busts placed in Canton, Ohio.

At last, could this be Joe Jacoby's turn to hear his name called as one of the finalists?

NFL Media analyst Elliot Harrison sure thinks it's Jacoby's turn.

Harrison published a piece entitled, "Hall of Fame, Class of 2017: Forecasting the next Canton clique," and one of the names on his list for next year's ceremony is Jacoby.

Here's what Harrison had to say about Jacoby:

"[Joe] Jacoby or Alan Faneca will make the Class of 2017," Harrison said. "The former "Hog" was named first-team All-Pro twice, while making four Pro Bowls. The key number here is two -- i.e., Jacoby only has two years of eligibility left before he becomes a senior candidate. Seeing as that he made it to the final cutdown for the Class of 2016, the voting room might see fit to finally say yes."

One of the greatest offensive tackles to ever play the game, Hall of Famer Anthony Muñoz, had a glowing recommendation for Jacoby.

"They won three Super Bowls," Muñoz said of Jacoby and his group of Redskins. "That's an accomplishment."

Harrison and Muñoz couldn't have laid it out any better for Jacoby to finally stake his claim for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
