Question of the Day
“When I got drafted (by Dallas), they’d just won a Super Bowl,” Allen said. “When they threw me in, I just didn’t want to be the one to mess it up.”
His philosophy never changed over his long career: make the guy across from him “quit … tap out.” He joins three other players from that great Cowboys offense of the 1990s in the hall, following Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin.
“All those guys _ Troy and Mike, Emmitt _ they were kind of like big brothers,” Allen said. “I looked up to them. They came to work every day and showed me how to do it. They all wanted to be the best.”
Culp was a defensive stalwart for the Kansas City Chiefs in the 1960s and `70s, and also played for the Houston Oilers and Detroit Lions. He started at tackle in Kansas City’s Super Bowl win over Vikings in 1970 and was selected to six Pro Bowls.
“Curley was a dominating force on the defensive line for the Super Bowl IV championship team and one of many great players that helped build the tradition and foundation of the Kansas City Chiefs,” the team’s chairman and CEO, Clark Hunt, said in a statement. “We look forward to seeing him take his rightful place in Canton.”
Robinson played on the powerhouse Green Bay teams of the 1960s, starting at outside linebacker on coach Vince Lombardi’s two Super Bowl champions. He closed his 12-year career with the Washington Redskins.
“He was such a vital part of those great defenses in the 1960s,” said Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy. “Dave’s contributions to the Packers have not been limited to the field, as he has also been a great ambassador for the organization over the years. We are thrilled that he received this honor.”
Robinson was the 22nd member of the Packers to be election to the Hall of Fame.
