I was certain that kid's trajectory was to be a rock solid linebacker for us.
Stepfret Williams. Solely because of his name
The man, the myth, the legend.
Someone should get into contact with the liquor store clerk and find out how Mike's doing these days. I'm curious.
Add Rod Hill to that list.... a real stretch.....
Never heard of him.
Honestly, I'm not sure... way after Parcels left Miami.
George Teague for knocking TO off the star
Teague was a good player.
Doug Donley. If he catches Danny White's third and seven pass in the 1981 Championship Game, then the Dwight Clark catch never happens. I just knew when he dropped it we would lose the game. It was much like Wes Welker's drop in the 2011 Super Bowl that gave the Giants the ball with enough time to pull out the win.
I have always wondered how Danny White's legacy would have changed with just that one catch. We were a better team than Cincinnati that year so I think Danny gets his first ring and who knows what happens to his career from there.
How could I forget -- Alexander Wright. The man had blazing speed. I remember him running a kickoff back for a TD. I thought he would be with us for at least a decade.
Too lazy to go through the thread and see who's been mentioned but can't leave out Skyler Green who made the most spectacular 5 yard returns since Lucky Whitehead. Someone posted a highlight reel the day we drafted him of him returning punts and KO's. He looked like a cross between Deon Sanders and Devin Hester. He would run 40 yards in circles for a 4 yard return.
The two Davids, LeFeur and Bueler.
I really thought LeFeur would be a great player. Chronic back issue ended his career.
Me too. But I would mention Randall Williams; he scored the fastest TD in NFL history.
Yeah, Randall Williams was mentioned. He was all world in training camp every year, making spectacular circus catches one after another in practice but couldn't catch a cold in a game. His hands would go from Velcro to Kevlar in games. I remember him dropping three passes in a preseason game and then the next day he made two one hand grabs in practice. As soon as the lights went on he would turn into a pumpkin.
Ebenezer Ekuban. Always liked him, especially after he sacked a Redskins QB (Thanksgiving game I believed) then dragged him for a couple yards as a celebration.
Best football name since Jarvis Redwine.
