Jimmy Johnson Gets The Call

Recommended Posts

I actually don't like the induction yet.  There were many coaches ahead of him that have won far more games than him, and been to many more Super Bowls than him.  He was a flashing star in the NFL with  the Cowboys, but did nothing with Miami.  I said this last night Dan Reeves should have went in before both him and Cower.  While he never won the Super Bowl as a Head Coach he took two different teams to 4 Super Bowls.  He has been in 9, and only Bill Bellichick has been to more Super Bowls as a assistant or head coach.  Mike Holmgren and Marty Shottenheimer or two others that should have made it before Jimmy.  It seems they're just handing out gold jackets without giving any thought to the past.  I'm not saying Jimmy shouldn't eventually be in, but this is too early.  

I also think it's sad when players that should have been inducted during their lifetime aren't inducted until after they're dead.  Such as the case was with Ken Stabler and I believe eventually Cliff Branch.
