On this episode of the future award-winning Talking Buffalo Podcast, Patrick Moran has a chat with recurring guest Bruce Nolan, co-host of the Nick and Nolan show as well as host of his own brand new The Bruce Exclusive podcast.

Today’s topic is a fun exercise that’s purely hypothetical.  Pretending the NFL has closed its doors for eternity, the guys discuss and determine which players still active in the league at the end of last season would wind up in Canton, Ohio as a member of the NFL Hall of Fame.

The intentionally unrealistic premise of the NFL folding is finding out what players have done enough to gain entry into the Hall of Fame with no more games left to play.  Patrick took 35 candidates and broke them down into four  candidate categories: locks, near locks, 50/50 guys and long shots.  They disagree almost immediately with one of Patrick’s locks and its sets the tone for  a pretty riveting discussion on many players.

If that’s not enough,  after Patrick’s list is complete Bruce runs down nine candidates never discussed.

The entire segment is chock full of excellent insight and hot takes from Bruce.  Through the process, Patrick realizes that one of Bruce’s candidates may be among the most underrated players in NFL history. In the end Bruce unofficially inducts 28 players to Canton, Ohio and their place in history,

Bruce also spends some time talking about his new podcast premiering this week called The Bruce Exclusive, including why he decided to do it, what the content will primarily consist of, what this means for the popular Nick and Nolan show he co-hosts with Nick Bat and plenty more.
