WR Drew Pearson Named Senior Nominee for 2021 Hall of Fame Class

    's long wait to join his former teammates in the may soon over. Pearson was named as the only senior nominee to the Class of 2021 today, which means there's little chance that the legendary won't ultimately be selected.

    The man who started the legacy of #88 for the Cowboys, Pearson was a Champion in Dallas and made the NFL's All-Decade Team for the 1970s. He ranks in the team's top-five for receptions and receiving yards, and is 7th all-time in touchdown catches.

    As McClain's tweet said, the “rubber stamp” should be on this nomination and won't be met with any resistance. Pearson has long been considered one of the biggest snubs from the Hall of Fame, especially given how many of the other Dallas greats from the 70s and other NFL players from that All-Decade team have been enshrined.

    Now Pearson, who has been very vocal about his disappointment on not being inducted, should finally get to have his day.

    Drew's name has certainly been on our minds this year as his fabled was given to rookie WR . From to (and that brief, interesting stop with Antonio Bryant in between) and now Lamb, the #88 has stood for a player having high expectations as a franchise receiver.

    That all began with the work Drew Pearson put in during his time in Dallas. Many have clamored for Pearson to get his rightful spot in the Hall of Fame and it appears to finally be happening.

    Congratulations to one of our all-time greats on this long-overdue honor!

    Sure hope he gets in this time around. He was a awesome player at receiver. I love him and Tony Hill.


    Too obvious to assume that Roger will be his choice for his introduction?


    YES!!!! Mr. Pearson truly deserves the HOF. An all time great and Clutch performer. Called “Mr. Clutch” by Captain Comeback himself, Roger Staubach. Congratulations to one of the greatest Cowboys ever.

    Maybe the best undrafted WR in NFL history ! And it better be Roger!

    Carlos Ramos

    The original #88 and part of the original Hail Mary Catch! Should have been voted in years ago! Congratulations Drew, well deserved, thank you for all the memories.
