Michael Irvin gets a lot of criticism for his past. But no player has shown more love for the game than Irvin has since he left it. His Hall of Fame speech last year will go down as one of the most emotional talks to fans the NFL has ever witnessed. But he continues his good deeds.
Here is a great article about a program the NFL adopted from an idea of Irvin’s. All rookies take a trip to the Hall of Fame to learn valuable lessons about the game and its great players. One of them is Irvin. Another is Aikman. And then there’s Emmitt, and a host of other Dallas Cowboys who are truly some of the best players the NFL has ever seen.
Irvin has paid his dues. He’s instilling history into these impressionable young players, and he’s helping them pursue a dream.
