Watching Cowboys' Drew Pearson Find Out He Didn't Get Into Hall Of Fame Is Heartbreaking
© Shane Roper-USA TODAY Sports
69-year-old Dallas Cowboys legend Drew Pearson was a three-time Pro Bowler, named to three All-Pro teams, won a Super Bowl and was named to the NFL’s All-Decade team for the 1970s. On Wednesday, he believed he would get the call to enter the Hall of Fame, unfortunately that call didn't come...

The snub makes Pearson the only offensive player on the NFL’s 1970 All-Decade first team to not be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Every single player from the first-team defense is also in the Hall, and many players from the second team are enshrined in Canton.

He was the dominant receiver on a dominant team. Does Julian Edelman or Wes Walker get in? If so, then yes Pearson gets in, if not then Pearson doesn’t get in

This is a product of letting too many guys into the hall. Hall of fame should be reserved for record setters, game changers, and players who dominate their position throughout their career.

With the admission of very good players who were super bowl teams (Swann, Bradshaw) he should be in. If the standard is great players then no. Since the standard is set, he should be in.

Pearson was in the league when you left your soul and liver bloodied on the field. Put this man in the hall.

Bloody liver? I guess that’s why OJ got inducted in 1985.

If Lynn Swann is in, then Drew should absolutely be in. Drew Pearson was better than Swann. No question.

Drew was a great one. Don’t know if it was good enough.
