I still say if our defense is to take the next leap we need our dirty player. We need that nasty guy who gets other players out of their game. People around here don't like to admit what Romo meant to our Superbowl teams but i still think he was vital. Also those big hits from Atwater back then served notice. We just don't seem to have a true intimidator outside of Von and truthfully he's sort of nice. He seems like the kind of player RT are like well Vons a great guy I don't mind too much he just crushed my QB. He's so affable!.
So much has changed since the days of Smith/Atwater... in today's game, they would be getting fined and/or suspended on a weekly basis. Nevermind what Goodell would do to the likes of Deacon Jones, Jack Lambert, Jack Tatum or Dick Butkus.
