    Good call on Tolbert. The guy was always making plays but really flew under the radar with some of the names on defense.

    Tony Tolbert was my favorite defensive player in the 90's. He was incredibly underrated. Tolbert was a player that played better in the big games. All-time postseason stats are sometimes hard to find, but I'm pretty sure he is one of the all-time post season sack leaders. Combine that with being an excellent run defender and you have a very important pice of the 90's dynasty. The 1989 draft of Aikman, Johnston, Stepnoski and Tolbert does not get enough credit. All of them made at leas one Pro Bowl and 1 is a HOFer.
    Another thing about Tolbert, he did most of this with horrible knees. He could barely walk the day after a game. He was a true warrior. Nice to see this thread (even if I responded a bit late).

    Tolbert is up there with Holt as one of my all-time favourites.

    I agree with Tolbert. He was a favorite of mine back during that run and I always thought he got heavily over looked.
