TE Jackie Smith, St. Louis Cardinals/Dallas Cowboys:
Another all-time tight end, Smith’s singular trip to the Super Bowl resulted in one of the most iconic – and perhaps undeserved – Super Bowl screw-ups ever. Facing the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XIII, Smith dropped a surefire touchdown when the Cowboys were down by a count of 21-14. He was blamed for the loss despite the fact there were other turning points in the contest and Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach admitting it was far from the best pass.
Smith’s 7,918 receiving yards at the time of his retirement were an NFL record at the time. He was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 1994, becoming the third tight end ever to become enshrined. Despite all of his many records, he is still maligned for the dropped touchdown in the Super Bowl, however.
