There have been some jersey numbers in our countdown that were stiff competition. There are others, like 92, which are slam-dunk decisions. The Greatest 92 in Dallas Cowboys History will actually be briefly mentioned later on in this series because his rookie year he wore 62 (where he put together 52 tackles and 2 sacks).
It wasn’t until Tony Tolbert’s sophomore year in 1990 that he switched over to #92 and put together one of the more underrated Cowboy careers of all time. He amassed 279 tackles and 57 sacks in 8 years under the #92 banner.
Arguably the most impressive statistic from Tolbert’s time is that after missing 8 games in 1990, from 1991-1997 he didn’t miss a single one. Considering that Tolbert was a part of a pass-rushing unit that saw a lot of action, this is highly impressive. Tolbert helped that unit and his Cowboys teams win 3 Super Bowls in the 1990s and he is without question the Greatest 92 in Dallas Cowboys History.
