    He's got an amazing amount of class. For those of you who didn't have the opportunity to follow those great Landry teams, Wright captures the character of those teams.

    He wasn't one of those dominant power kinds of OTs that the Hall of Fame favors.

    He played with finesse and did a superb job of it. He routinely shut down the best pass rushers of his era - despite their speed, the head slaps and punches that were then legal, and the very restrictive rules on what OTs were allowed to do with their hands and arms in those days.

    I'm very happy he made it to the Hall and am looking forward to his speech.
