Jimmy Johnson is in the HoF, now he needs the RoH.
On Sunday evening, a great NFL injustice was corrected when the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced Jimmy Johnson as its 328th member. It was incredible. Watch it here.

When next fall hits we will all get to see Johnson and his beautiful hair molded into a bronze bust that will live forever in football’s most immortal fraternity. He deserves that and has for some time.
Why is Johnson so deserving? I likely don’t have to convince you, but he served as the architect for the Dallas Cowboys of the 1990s that ultimately won three Super Bowls in four seasons, two of which he presided over, and he drastically changed the way that talent was evaluated across the league as a whole. You cannot tell the story of the history of football without him which is why he belongs in the Hall of Fame.
