Color me shocked.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2013 was announced Saturday, and like so many of you who appreciate the history of the game, there were some surprises to go around.

Before we get to that, however, here's the final accounting of the newest enshrinees: Larry Allen, Cris Carter, Curley Culp, Jonathan Ogden, Bill Parcells, Dave Robinson and Warren Sapp made it.

Carter missed the boat his first five years of eligibility. Culp and Robinson were two very deserving senior nominees. Below are some thoughts on the rest of the class, as well as those who didn't make it.

So without further ado, here are my five takeaways from this year's class. Would love to hear your reax as well... @Harrison_NFL is the place.
