What can we do as a website to bring attention to these two great defensive stars who are not on the Ring of Honor.
You can't think of those Cowboys teams from the 70's without "Too Tall and Too Mean"
#72 and #79 need to be on the ring of honor soon. How can Charles Haley be on there for being a Cowboy for such a short time and not Jones and Martin.
Can we as a website start a petition and send it to Jerry Jones and his family and let them know that Cowboys fans want these to great Cowboys on the ring.
We all know that Romo, Ware and Witten will all be inducted, so we really need to make a push for these two gentlemen.
We've lost the opportunity to see both men walk on the field together with the passing of Martin so let's not wait any longer and get Too Tall on the Ring before it's too late.

I hope it gets done too.

What about Stepnoski and Moose Johnston?

EDIT: Meh, on 2nd thought, Stepnoski was an Oiler for a bit and Johnston is a glorified fan favorite. Nate Newton might be a better pick than both.

I agree both should be in. I grew up watching my then Idol - Roger Staubach, Dorsett and the "Doomsday defense". I would vote for them. I am wondering if anyone ever cornered Jerry Jones and asked him "why they weren't in?"

I'd be curious to hear his reasons.

I grew up in a heavily wooded neighborhood. When we would play football in the street and the ball hit a branch overhanging the road, we would always say it was Ed Too Tall Jones.

That's all I got.
