    I'll have to look it up, but I believe he was mostly a backup, but a backup to more than one position. QB and RB for sure. I think there were others. He was one of Landry's top assistants before he retired as a player.

    As a Cowboys fan since 1965, Dan Reeves was definitely one of my hero's.


    Daniel Edward Reeves (January 19, 1944 January 1, 2022) was an American football running back and coach in the National Football League (NFL). During his 38 years in the NFL, Reeves participated in nine Super Bowls, the third most for an individual. He served as a head coach for 23 seasons from 1981 to 2003, primarily with the Denver Broncos and the Atlanta Falcons. As a player, he spent the entirety of his eight-season career with the Dallas Cowboys, who signed him as an undrafted free agent in 1965. He was inducted to the Broncos Ring of Fame in 2014.
    Reeves made his first two Super Bowl appearances during his playing career, winning one in Super Bowl VI. He began his coaching career as an assistant coach for Cowboys, where he made three more championship appearances and was part of the team that won Super Bowl XII. As the head coach of the Broncos for 12 seasons, Reeves led the team to three championship appearances in Super Bowl XXI, Super Bowl XXII, and Super Bowl XXIV, each of which ended in defeat. Following four seasons as the head coach of the New York Giants, Reeves served as the Falcons' head coach for seven seasons. With the Falcons, he led the franchise to their first championship appearance in Super Bowl XXXIII, where he was defeated by his former team, the Broncos. He was the third coach to ever lead two different teams to the Super Bowl, a feat matched by four other coaches. [1]
    One of only ten NFL head coaches to win 200 career games, Reeves has the most playoff wins (11, tied with Marv Levy) and Super Bowl appearances (four, tied with Levy and Bud Grant) among NFL head coaches who have not won a championship. He also holds the head coaching record for most regular season losses in the NFL (165), tied with Jeff Fisher, although Reeves has a higher winning percentage. Reeves and Marty Schottenheimer are the only eligible NFL head coaches with 200 career wins who have not been inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    He didn't really play QB in the NFL, he just threw the ball a lot from the RB position. He played HB and Don Perkins played FB, but Perkins was the more used runner. Both started, but it was a different setup from even what the Cowboys would later run with a FB. He did get slowed down by injuries pretty early and was a bit more of a backup after that.

    Reeves threw a HB pass for a TD to Lance Rentzel in the "Ice Bowl."

    Hmm. That "play by play" announcer must have been from Green Bay. He sounds rather subdued.

    He is from Green Bay, that is the Packers' long time broadcaster Ray Scott. He's a legend in broadcasting. One of the best in history.

    Well, listening to THAT broadcast, he sounds like he could use some lessons from Dave Nitz.

    Lots of broadcasters would benefit from lessons from Dave Nitz.

    But, don't be too critical of Ray Scott based on just that one short excerpt. I was not a Packers' fan back then, I was a 1) Baltimore Colts and 2) Dallas Cowboys' fan...until the Saints started in 1967. But, I appreciated how good Lombardi's Packers were (much like I do with Saban & Bama, not a fan but acknowledge how good they are) and enjoyed listening to Ray Scott's calls of their games.
