Cowboys great Darren Woodson snubbed from the Hall of Fame again
We hate to end on a sour note, but the NFL announced its 2024 Pro Football Hall of Fame Class during the NFL Honors on Thursday. The class consisted of Dwight Freeney, Andre Johnson, Patrick Willis, Steve McMichael, Devin Hester, Julius Peppers and Randy Grandishar.
No mention of Darren Woodson, who was snubbed yet again. It begs the question of what more Woodson has to do to get into Canton.
“I'd be lying if I told you I'm not disappointed," Woodson told reporters. "I'm disappointed that I'm not going into the Hall of Fame. I can't control the outcome. My entire life has been that way. I've always had to work myself back up. Things were hard sometimes in my life, but they eventually just worked out. And I'm banking that at some point, this will work out."
Woodson's credentials are without question Hall-of-Fame-worthy. He's a three-time Super Bowl champion, a three-time first-team All-Pro and five time Pro Bowler. He also revolutionized the safety position, as he was among the first DBs to wreak havoc in the box.
Woodson has now been a finalist two years running. He's certainly trending in the direction of entering the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but he was flat out robbed. Again. Hopefully, voters get it right next year, but we're not holding our breath.
