Bill Bates Birthday


Recommended Posts

_Jaguars.gif Cheers Coach :cheers:


3-time Super Bowl champion with the Dallas Cowboys.

Bates was the Cowboys special teams captain.

An All-Madden selection for 12 seasons.

One of the NFL's true success stories, Bates had a distinguished career from 1983 to '97 that was characterized by persistence and an ability to overcome the odds. Starting in 1983, he made the team as a long-shot rookie free agent and eventually became a special teams star. His production as a special teams standout helped propel the league into adding a spot on the Pro Bowl teams for special teams coverage players.

Bates was a three-year starter at safety and was named the Cowboys' special teams captain in 1990. He finished his career with 701 tackles in 217 regular season games played, second all-time to Ed Jones. His 15 seasons as a Cowboy ranks No. 1 all-time with Mark Tuinei and Jones.

Bates was a four-year starting safety at the University of Tennessee, where he intercepted nine passes and was named second-team All-SEC as a junior and a senior.

He and his wife, Denise, live in Dallas and have four sons - Graham, Hunter, Tanner and Dillon - and a daughter, Brianna.

My most enjoyable Bates moment ocurred at RFK. Gibbs put in a formation to force Bates into one on one coverage of Clint Didier. Result a fly pattern with Dids scoring on aa 65 yrd play. Bates was trailing by 10 yards.

I know JUST the birthday gift for Bill Bates.............

He should get hit by someone dressed in a Redskins uniform in FULL HELMET AND PADS, prefreably a blind side hit, kinda like all the cheap shots he dished out in his "glorious":puke: career.
