When Dallas Cowboys Owner and GM Jerry Jones inducted Drew Pearson, Larry Allen, and Charley Haley in to the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor, it brought the total to 20 men (18 players plus Tom Landry and Tex Schramm) in the Ring. It also sparked questions about whether Charley Haley deserved to be in The Ring, and that controversy led some of us to start thinking about who should be the next to get inducted in to the Ring.
We decided to let you, the Dallas Cowboys faithful, determine which Cowboy player(s) most deserve to be in the Ring of Honor. We will continue providing profiles for the 10 finalists this week. If you want to read about the methodology we used to create the list of 10 finalists or the 3 players who received Honorable Mentions for almost making the Top 10, please click here.
One clarification before we introduce this week’s Candidate for the ROH: I received several emails this week questioning whether the order in which the candidates were introduced was meant to be an indication of their worthiness for induction. It doesn’t; the candidates are being introduced randomly. Click here to read about last week’s nominee.
As some of you know, C. Joseph Wright is leaving the Landry Hat soon to do Dallas Cowboys stuff at www.sportdfw.com, so you have to click here to read this week’s nominee.
