Sport VIDEO: Cowboys Legend Drew Pearson's Reaction to Missing Hall of Fame Again is Gutting
Deion Sanders 'trying to figure out why' Edgerrin James isn't already in the Hall of Fame
Deion Sanders voiced his support Friday for fellow South Florida product Edgerrin James' Pro Football Hall of Fame candidacy.
NFL fans weren't the only ones waiting to see which legends will make it into the centennial slate of the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2020. Former Dallas Cowboys wide receivergathered alongside his family on Wednesday morning to see if he received the "Call for the Hall." Unfortunately, Pearson missed out, and his reaction is absolutely gut-wrenching.
Truly a sad day. Drew Pearson in now the only member of the NFL 1970’s All Decade 1st Team not in. The only player NOT in.
Super Bowl-winning coach Jimmy Johnson into Hall of Fame
Jimmy Johnson, who coached the Dallas Cowboys to two Super Bowl championships in the 1990s, has been elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The hall announced his selection Sunday night as part of a centennial class that was chosen on Wednesday by a special committee. Former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher was revealed Saturday night as the other coach being inducted. A successful college coach at Oklahoma State and Miami, where he won a national championship in 1987, Johnson was hired in 1989 by new Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.— Newy Scruggs (@newyscruggs)
How can you not feel for the guy? He even proclaimed that the NFL "broke [his] heart." Man.
There were few receivers of the 1970s who were better than. In fact, he was named to the 1970s All-Decade First Team, and he's the only one on that squad who still remains outside of Canton.
Drew Pearson: “This hurts. They broke my heart. They broke my heart. And they did it like this. They strung it out like this.”— Jon Machota (@jonmachota)
He spent his entire ten-year career with the Cowboys, and in that span, he earned three All-Pro nominations, three Pro Bowl nods, and one Super Bowl championship. In 156 games, Pearson tallied 489 receptions for 7,822 yards and 48 touchdowns.
Hopefully one day the Pro Football Hall of Fame gets it right, because Drew Pearson is long overdue for a gold jacket.
The anti-Derek Jeter Hall of Fame voter will remain anonymous unless they choose to identify themself .
The one baseball writer who did not vote for Derek Jeter for the Hall of Fame will not be revealed unless they choose to identify themself. The Baseball Writers Association of America, which votes on the Hall of Fame inductees, had voted to make all their Hall of Fame ballots public back in 2016, but the Baseball Hall of Fame vetoed that. Wednesday, at a press conference for Jeter and fellow electee Larry Walker, Jane Forbes Clark, the Chairman of the Hall Board of Directors, said they would continue to allow voters to keep their ballots private — even after the outcry about one out of 397 voters leaving Jeter off his ballot.
