Vikings' Randy Moss inducted into Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday

Perhaps the most popular Philadelphia Eagle ever, safety Brian Dawkins had a little bit of everything in his speech at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio on Saturday night.

Dawkins credited his wife, Connie, with saving his life, and he had a special gift planned for her.

"I love you too. Please know that you all are in my heart".

"This is such a huge honor for me". You challenged me every day, to go out there and be great. The late Dennis Green, who was Moss's first coach with the Vikings, and was the one who took a chance on him in 1998 with the 18th-overall pick.

"I didn't just compete to beat the other person". I just love competing, competition is in my DNA. But there is no question that Lewis is one of the greatest and most inspirational players in the history of the game, and he delivered his speech with an incredible passion, engaging most of the crowd all the way. He'll be joined by senior National Football League insider Chris Mortensen and National Football League analyst and three-time Super Bowl champion Darren Woodson.

"It was an incredible experience to be with him and have him bring you along", he said about Lombardi, who gave him "approval and belief: powerful, powerful tools". When Phillips passed away in 2013, he left the belt buckle - which features gold lettering of the team's name and his name, along with a football and Phillips' signature cowboy hat - to Brazile. Who will answer that knock on the door in the middle of the night?

"The other part of me being here is because of that woman, because of Connie, because of you, because of your urging me to see a psychologist to talk about my problems and be more open with you about my problems so we could talk things out", he said.

A contributor's committee nominee, Beathard worked for the Chiefs, Falcons, Dolphins, Redskins and Chargers.

Kramer was under the weather the Friday before his induction and unable to keep his date with the national media, but nothing was going to keep him from his enshrinement speech Saturday.

Moss closed his speech with a statement to his mother that he considers them both of Hall of Famers. "Whether it is three years or 45 years, you should get what you rightfully earned. And so I grew a chip on my shoulder, but also what began to grow was anger in me, that I would lose control of once in a while".
