    ..his lateral cut ability was crazy dangerous at his speed level. Probably the funnest RB to watch run the ball. Smooth Operator.

    Thank you for posting this. Tony was so dynamic and gets over shadowed by Emmitt (who I loved). People forget how big Tony was in the NFL in the early 80s. Did he have a contemporary who he was measured against like Emmitt was with Barry? I don’t remember.

    Tony looks like the fastest man on the field. Has another gear. Matt Millen once referred to him “as the slowest walking fast man he had ever met”. Posts like this are the reason I love this forum.

    Tony Dorsett was such a smooth runner. I don't think I've ever seen another RB with his gait. He could be wearing a generic uniform and if he carried the ball, I would know it was him.

    I followed Tony all the way from Pitt till we drafted him, was super pumped that we did. Tony was dynamic and a magician of sorts who could cut and shake and bake and take that ball to the house on any given carry. He was a different type of back than Emmitt Smith. Both were great and had heart, however.

    One of the big differences between Dorsett and "other" RBs is that he could go the distance, even if he had to juke people 50 yards downfield.

    The play at 12:37 is my favorite. Most RBs would've been tackled for a loss, but his vision let him stop and slide to his left, then accelerate like he was being chased by wolves.

    Dorsett and Dickerson had the smoothest and effortless strides.

    Other than Darryl Green, no one else is catching him in the open field.

    The time goes quick. The first SB I got to see the Cowboys win, I was sled riding with my friends before the game. The last SB I watched them win was from my own house that I purchased several years prior. The next SB I'll be watching from a nursing home!

    See I disagree here - They were different. They both hit the hole quickly but Emmitt was stronger but not as elusive. Emmitt was better between the tackles although Dorsett was very good as well, but without question Dorsett was better outside the tackles. Emmitt could break tackles better but Dorsett avoided the tackles better and when Dorsett hit the open field there was a better chance he would score. Near the goal Dorsett was no slouch but give me Emmitt near the goal.

    My two favorites also. Loved how fluid and smooth TD was.
    I met TD's ex wife at the Palm Beach Gardens Mall when I lived in that area. When their son was in college.

    That's funny. This season isn't that exciting for me in regards to the Cowboys because I know the Bucs are going back. Nothing is stopping them. They're probably just peaking now. I am still excited to see how the Cowboys improve and other situations in the NFL regarding QBs, but a championship? I don't think so. But hey, anything can happen.

    TB only making the playoffs by default. Brees has retired, NO will not be as good, Panthers and Falcons will struggle some but could be spoilers. Brady is a year older, and a lot of film to dissect on them. I will not count him out though. But I won't go as far as saying repeat at this point.

    Not exciting going into this season?. I get excited at the start of any season. Even in 1989, we knew we would not compete for a playoff spot. But didn't think we would be 1-15. I figured 5 or 6 wins at the most if lucky. But I was still excited to see how they would be built, and even more so after the Walker trade. The thing is this year if all healthy, they do have a shot to go deeper into the playoffs, if the defense even improves to average. And they is a good chance at that. Though I want to see it on the field for real. But it is enough to keep me pumped up for the season too start.

    I don't have SB aspirations, but each year is different and you never know what will happen. Ask Eli Manning about that. :lmao2:

    Yeah I can't argue any of this. Especially your last comment. I just have a feeling the Bucs are going to be like 2007 Patriots. I don't mean 16-0. But really close to that. It's a feeling I have this season. Brady and the Bucs are stacking the deck. I hope I'm wrong. That is the last thing I want to see.
