Considering the success he's brought to the NFL from the lockout resolution, to his contributions on the rule committee, and just the credibility he's brought to the NFL it's well deserved. I'm also sure there have been plenty of things behind the scenes he helped smooth over that we'll never hear about.

Granted it's easy to be successful when you have an elite GM/HC/Personnel Evaluator all in one HOF coach, but he's been a great owner we're lucky to have. Don't have to worry about him picking up and moving to Baltimore. Rolling Eyes

Have to give Bob Kraft a ton of credit for not just hiring Belichick, but giving up a 1st round pick to do so.

Between saving the team from moving to St. Louis, building an (at the time) state of the art privately financed stadium, hiring Belichick and seeing his team go to 6 Super Bowls in his time as an owner, he deserves the HOF just on his Patriots contributions.

Throw in his work with the ownership committee and everything else he has done to contribute to the game and he is a no-brainer for the HOF. He might have to wait awhile but it would be a disgrace if he didn't get in.

For those of us who remember Victor Kiam and James Orthwein, Bob Kraft represents more than just a winning era and a nice stadium/shopping complex. He brought respectability back to a team which was a joke both on and off the field.

Very well deserved. He means EVERYTHING to the Patriots and rescued the NFL while his wife was on her deathbed. He should get in on his sacrifice alone.
