    His numbers were completely eye popping for a TE in the 1980s. Had he been able to log just a couple more years, he'd likely be in the HoF.

    I just checked it and he did.

    When healthy he was a darn good player. Unfortunate loss because he came across as a great person as well.

    EDIT: Kind of changes Rich's reason for having respect for him however. haha.

    I've never heard of him but that is awfully young. Very sad.

    then why did you say we cut him too soon. Landry told him his only chance to make the team was to switch to TE. He refused; so what choice did that leave Landry? If you cannot figure that out that is your problem

    I remember Todd was the sideline reporter during Super Bowl 27.
    During halftime, he asked Jimmy Johnson, whose Cowboys were leading 28-10, about Buffalo's historic comeback against the Oilers in the AFC Championship Game.
    As Todd recounts, Jimmy looks at him and says, "We're not Houston." :)

    I don't care what anyone says about Jimmy Johnson, he's the type of coach you love.

    I'll always remember T.C. because of that interview.
    Sorry to see you go, T.C.

    That was great, I remember that and I loved the way Jimmy answered that question and JImmy is the type of coach you love if you want to win championships and build real teams.

    I always liked Todd and can remember when the Cowboys drafted him.

    Great description " Rennaisance Man". Very applicable in this case
