Steelers History Alan Faneca Makes Finalist for 2019 Pro Football HOF Class Published 8 months ago on January 3, 2019 By Donnie Druin 2shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment EmailThe most prestigious collection of professional football players got another step closer to adding more black and gold to it’s decor. On Thursday night, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced its finalists for the 2019 class. Among those chosen was former Pittsburgh Steelers guard Alan Faneca. Faneca, the team’s first round pick in the 1998 NFL Draft, proved to be arguably the best offensive guard during his time, adding nine Pro-Bowl selections and six first team All-Pro nods during his time. Mention Steelers Now and save $10! Faneca’s time with the Steelers spanned for 10 seasons, winning Super Bowl XL with the team in 2005 before playing for the New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals following his departure after the 2007 season. Although his last three seasons were spent outside of the steel city, Faneca is widely regarded as a fortified member of Steelers history, finding himself on the Pittsburgh Steelers All-Time Team, while also claiming a spot on the NFL’s All-2000’s team as well. Faneca finds himself in great competition to get into Canton, Ohio. Tony Gonzalez, Ed Reed, Isaac Bruce and Champ Bailey top the list of the final 15 players for consideration. The 2019 Hall of Fame class will be revealed the night before the Super Bowl on February 2nd. While the Steelers may not have found themselves competing for a championship, the team still has a chance to make noise on the first weekend of February, thanks to one of the greatest offensive linemen to ever play the game. 2shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment Email Related Topics:Alan FanecafeaturedPittsburgh SteelersSteelers/Hall of Fame Up Next Terry Bradshaw Partners With The ALS Association to Raise Awareness Don't Miss Familiar Names Dot NFLPA Bowl Coaching Staff Donnie Druin Continue Reading Advertisement You may like Steelers Sights and Sounds: Home Turf Exclusive with former Steelers QB Landry Jones Steelers Roster Projection after Preseason Week 2 Poll: Who Should Be Steelers Backup Quarterback?
