Shouldn't induction be based on production, winning, and impact on the game? Eddie D did all three at a high level. If success truly starts at the top, he should be in. He formed the greatest dynasty in the history of the NFL, won 5 championships, and changed the way organizations are ran in the NFL. Every other NFL franchise copied his 49ers in every way. He was in another class. If there was ever a non player who deserved to be in the HOF, it's Eddie D.
How ironic that it happens here in NO, where Eddie was accused of cozying up with the governor and riverboat gambling. It is a travesty that he is not it. Just like Pete Rose should be in (and Barry )
