Six things we love about the 2000s

Valentine’s Day is a day of love, so it’s only fitting that we take a look back at the things we love about the 2000s in the NFL. We have narrowed the list down to six here. But after giving this a look, you can join in the action down below and say what you love about the NFL.

Pick VI: Memorable Media Day moments

In some respects, Media Day has become an industry self-congratulatory event, where members of the media jostle for attention to try to show just how clever they can be. Kind of like the Golden Globes.

Here is a look at the top six moments.

Emmitt Smith judges Warner’s tango

No surprise, Smith delivers during speech

The fans had waited for it, and the Cowboys fans gave Emmitt Smith a thunderous ovation when he gave his induction speech. And those flash bulbs in the crowd never seemed to dim, constantly flashing brightly for the entire speech.

Rice: Emmitt Smith cost me three rings

The rivalry between the Cowboys and 49ers was the highlight of the NFL in the 1990s. But there was a respect there. You can feel it between the fans of the teams here in Canton, and it was addressed by Jerry Rice during his Hall of Fame speech.

Jerry’s in the house

With Emmitt Smith going into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday night, Dallas Cowboys fans are all over the place inside and outside the Hall. So naturally, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones — who is presenting Smith tonight — was a popular figure when he arrived.

Waiting on the real Emmitt Smith

There certainly is no shortage of Cowboys fans in Canton. An early estimation has the Cowboys fans dominating all others, including the 49ers, by a large margin. There are so many Cowboys fans here, you would think that they were America’s Team or something.

Hall of Fame fans arrive early

NFL.com’s Gil Brandt has always been an early-riser. On Enshrinement Day in Canton, he’s not alone. Brandt showed up outside the Pro Football Hall of Fame at 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning, and the place was already buzzing with fans wearing the team colors of all seven men being inducted into the Hall – even though the ceremony wasn’t set to begin for another 10-plus hours.

Franco Harris: Smith ‘reminds me of Rocky’

Listening to Hall of Famers talk about Emmitt Smith, you hear the same stories — it was his heart and desire that pushed him to great heights. Franco Harris, who might have had the best comparison.

Here’s your HOF starting lineup

CANTON, Ohio — The folks at the Pro Football Hall of Fame, who do such a terrific job every year organizing Enshrinement Weekend, usually wait until late in the game to finalize the order in which the Class of 2010 will be inducted in Saturday night’s ceremony. That list became set Friday afternoon. So here’s the official order: 1. Dick LeBeau 2. John Randle 3. Russ Grimm 4. Rickey Jackson 5. Jerry Rice 6. Floyd Little 7. Emmitt Smith
