Re: [patriotzip] Re: Tom Flores, that sneaky Chief!
- Wow! Tom Flores played for the Kansas City Chiefs in 1969. He completed his one pass for 33 yards, with gives him a QB Rating of 158.3, the highest possible.
In the Super Bowl itself, the broadcast must have zoomed in fifty times on Len Dawson, who played under the shadow of being accused of association with a gambler named "Dice" Dawson. I doubt anyone mentioned Tom Flores that day, but he qualifies as a Super Bowl winner as a player.
Cowher? When Brian Sipe was intercepted in the AFC Championship game, with the Browns trailing 14-12, Oakland and not Cleveland went to Super Bowl XV. Cowher was a Brown and an Eagle, but not a Steeler.
So, Tom Flores: good for him! If anyone asks which Latino coach/Latino QB won a SB, it would be Flores and Plunkett, but twice, not once!!!!

I found a list of Super Bowl Trivia of sorts and it listed Dittka, Flores and Dungy as those that have won Super Bowls as both players and coaches. Cowher played but didn't win a SB did he? Probably didn't count Madden if he didn't make the team due to injury?----- Original Message -----From: Mike BensonSent: Wednesday, January 20, 2010 3:39 PMSubject: Re: [patriotzip] Re: Jets! Jets! Jets!Susan, are you counting Madden? He was drafted as a player, but had a career-ending injury and never played.
