I posted this earlier on the CPND, but since most of you don't frequent the enemy board, I'll post it here too.
I do think that there is an anti-Cowboys bias for the HOF. There are several guys that deserve to go in my opinion from the Cowboys teams that went to so many Superbowls.
1. Bob Hayes - The fact that he isn't in the HoF is the biggest travesty there is. The guy did for the WR position what LT did for the Linebacking position.
2. Rayfield Wright - Him not being in the Hall isn't as shocking to me as Hayes, but still a major oversight. One of two All-Decade players from the 70s not in the HoF. (every All-Decade player from the 50s and 60s are in the HoF)
3. Lee Roy Jordan - Definitely deserves more consideration than he's gotten (I believe he's never even made it to the final vote).
4. Drew Pearson - How does an All-Decade player not get even consideration for the Hall?
5. Everson Walls - On every major CB stat, every player that has better than him that is eligible is in the Hall.
If there is a bias, it will be show with the '90s Cowboys -
1. Emmitt Smith - First ballot
2. Troy Aikman - First ballot
3. Michael Irvin - Will get in, but just not first ballot
4. Deion Sanders - Not a true Cowboy, but he did as much for Dallas as any other team, but first ballot when he's eligible.
5. Charles Haley - I think he will get in, but may be a while
6. Larry Allen - First Ballot
Then you have guys that I think will probably end up close but no cigar:
1. Darren Woodson
2. Jay Novacek
3. Daryl Johnston
And guys that have blown it by how they lived/died:
1. Nate Newton
2. Mark Tuinei
3. Leon Lett
And guys that were good/great for Dallas, but won't get mentioned.
1. Erik Williams
2. Mark Stepnoski
3. Tony Tollbert
David Harrell - Pokes
