Craig and Haley a Step Closer to Hall of Fame

Former SF 49ers RB Roger Craig & DE/LB Charles Haley are among the 25 semi-finalists being considered for the 2009 induction class into Pro Football’s Hall of Fame . . . that, in itself, is an honor but there are two more hurdles to clear — December 15th (when the list is shaved to 15) and, finally, January 31st when that ’09 class is officially chosen!

Several others (with Niners roots) that are still in the running for this year’s class are:  DE Richard Dent, DE/LB Kevin Greene and CB/S Rod Woodson.

And, among the nominees on the preliminary list of 133 prospective honorees beilng considered for future induction, are former Niners:  Eddie DeBartolo, Jr (as a “contributor”), TE Russ Francis, TE Brent Jones, DT Dana Stubblefield, RB Ricky Waters, QB Jim Plunkett, NT Fred Smerlas, LB Rickey Jackson, LB/DE Kevin Greene and G/C Randy Cross.
