I'm hoping he can reach his potential and become the first Cowboys linebacker to get in the Hall Of Fame.

We've never had a LB in the HOF? I didn't know that. I thought at least we'd have had Randy White in. Google search says he is in. Still, I hope Parsons makes the HOF.

Randy White was a DT. He did start his career off as a MLB but it was quickly apparent that he wasn’t going to succeed there. They moved him to DT and the rest is history.

White absolutely isn’t in the HOF as a LB. He’s a DT 100%.

That move definitely saved face for the Cowboys, given that they passed on Walter Payton to take the Manster.

I didn’t realize that they passed on him… a little before my time.

But yeah, salvaging something out of a mistake at LB was nice. Getting a HOF player out if it was even better.

Weird to think that Randy ever failed at anything.

This was a little before my time too, 4 years before I was born. But when I was doing research for an upcoming book project, I read that the Cowboys were torn between Sweetness and Manster.

I never heard that. That would’ve meant that Tony Dorsett would’ve never been a Cowboy… nor Randy White.
