RIP. Great TE. Great perm.
I remember him as a great athlete AND a great announcer. My FAVORITE Todd moment still has to be the episode of Married With Children where he was a game show host in Chicago and was asking Kelly sports Trivia and the ONE question she got wrong was: "Who was the Polk High fullback who scored a record four touchdowns in one game?"
That was exactly what I thought as soon as I saw this... definitely one of the better episodes
Todd started out with the Cowboys and they cut him . The rest is history . Even worse , I remember watching him play for the Cowboys in a pre season game .
Dude was a beast in Tecmo Bowl. Woudl run your arse right the hell over...
he was one of the first jock color commentators that used big 'ol .25 cent words when breaking down plays.
One game he was working , his partner said a player was a speedster , ran a sub 4.4 forty . Todd told him that the fastest player he ever saw was Cliff Branch and he barely cracked a 4.4 . Todd said nowdays everyone hits a 4.4 and he just doesn't buy it . His partner asked him what he ran in the 40 and Todd said 4.4 like evryone else .
Great team player, loved by all. Excellent in the booth after his playing days. RIP
