Re: Did Joe Theisman ever Play with the Miami Dolphins?

Hey guys I don't know if this is one of those urban myths, but I thought that Joe T. changed his last name to Theismann so that it would rhyme with heisman (trophy)? Something for the brain trust to research.......

Re: Did Joe Theisman ever Play with the Miami Dolphins?

Joe Theismann (born September 9, 1949) is a former American football quarterback and current television football announcer. He played football for the University of Notre Dame and was a runner-up in the 1970 Heisman Trophy voting which went to Jim Plunkett of Stanford University. Late in the season, the original pronunciation of his surname, "THEEZ-man," was altered to rhyme with "Heisman," which he has continued to use since then. Whether this was done by Theismann himself, as many have suggested, or at the behest of Notre Dame officials is unclear. During his collegiate career, the smallish Theismann (just 6'-0", 180 lb/1.83 m, 82 kg), led the Fighting Irish to a 20-3-2 record. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2003.

I will always believe that the Raiders were stealing signals. There not smart enough to figure it out themselves. And isn't it rather like Theesman to say "I didn't want to run the play!" Just because they called the play doesn't mean that he head to lob it up right to the guy that deep in his own territory.
