    Tipping Timmy? He may have been good for TDs inside the one but that it. :D I'd go with Scott Laidlaw.

    Yeah give me Laidlaw as well, lol. But Timmy had a sweet catch to win it vs Tampa Bay back in 1983.

    Threads like this are depressing, mainly because I would have a hard time 20 years from now looking back at this current team and finding similar unheralded players to remember fondly.

    Richie Anderson in our inept offense for 2 seasons.

    I will admit, I enjoyed Terry Glenn while he was here.

    Naming players from when I started watching. Only fair.

    Most of the guys I thought about are already mentioned so I'll have to dig a little deeper.

    Two guys who I thought contributed greatly to our special teams in the 90s glory days were Joe Fishback and Elvis Patterson. Unsung heroes both of them in my opinion.

    Troy Aikman.

    No seriously, wait. He wasn't a star QB by any means, the truth is, he played the most important position in the field, therefore he was always in the spotlight. He was -- in the words of Parcells -- the greatest bus driver ever. Think about it! He never really took over games solely with his arm. He never made spectacular highlights. He was just accurate enough, strong enough, leader enough and winner enough to guide the time, the spectacular team full of superstars to the promised land three times. He was a fantastic player, a non-star if you really put his numbers in perspective to other great QB's. Or maybe I'm just crazy.

    6th rounder in 68.
    Thought to be small and for some reason tried to make him a center.
    Not one single pro bowl but held down his position for many years.

    If you are just looking at stats sure! But unfortunately this is one if those situations where stats don't do a player justice.
