    I'm a die hard Cowboys fan but I have the utmost respect for the way that Brian Dawkins played the game. This HOF speech should be mandatory viewing for anyone aspiring to be the best that they can be. Now it's time for Darren Woodson to make the HOF. Ask Dawkins what he thinks of Darren Woodson. Guarantee he agrees with me.

    I'm English and I'm only 10 but my dream is to play safety or running back. This speech is truly inspirational and that is what will help me make my dream come true.
