It took six long years of eligibility, but Los Angeles/St. Louis Rams legend Isaac Bruce is finally named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Bruce joins a class of four other players and two coaches.
Bruce is known for being a major contributor to the Greatest Show on Turf era. Currently, QB Kurt Warner, RB Marshall Faulk and OT Orlando Pace received their Hall of Fame busts and jackets. Bruce had to take a backseat with a logjam of talented wide receivers gunning for the Hall of Fame.
Bruce is fifth all-time receiving leader with 15,208 yards, 1,024 receptions, 91 touchdowns and made four Pro Bowl appearances. He did help the Rams earn their only Super Bowl when they defeated the Tennessee Titans at Super Bowl XXXIV.
Unfortunately, teammate and fellow Rams legend Torry Holt did not make the class, but it was only his first year of eligibility. Bruce will be inducted with RB Edgerrin James, S Steve Atwater, S Troy Polamalu, OG Steve Hutchinson, coach Bill Cowher and coach Jimmy Johnson on August 6-9 at Canton, Ohio.
All that’s left to say is BRRRRUUUUUUUUUCCCCCEEEEEEE!!!!!!
