Owens was a supremely talented receiver, but he also was a supremely selfish player who submarined multiple franchises during his playing career. Owens forced his way out of San Francisco only to have a two-year stint in Philadelphia that ended with him doing sit-ups in a driveway before being suspended by the team. Owens resurfaced in Dallas, and that ended badly, too. After stints in Buffalo and Cincinnati, Owens’ 15-year career ended with Hall of Fame numbers. But he is having to wait longer because of all that damage.
Not only is this guy the best Dallas Cowboy to wear the number 33, he's also the best NFL athlete to wear the number 33. And some would also say he's the best professional athlete to wear the number 33.
Tony Dorsett was a phenomenal running back in college at the University of Pittsburgh. While with the Panthers, Dorsett earned the Heisman Trophy and helped rush his team into the National Championship.
In 1977, the Dallas Cowboys made Dorsett the number two overall draft pick, after trading up to get him. In his rookie season with Dallas, number 33 ran for 1,007 yards and 12 TDs. Although he wasn't named the starter until the tenth game of the season, he still put up those impressive numbers in his first season. That performance earned him the AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award.
In 1977 #PittMan @Tony_Dorsett was the 2nd overall pick in the #NFLDraft ,

Greasy Neale is another person who gained fame in both sports but who is omitted from the list. Neale played eight years in Major League Baseball, mostly for the Cincinnati Reds , from 1916 to 1924.  He also played for the Dayton Triangles in 1918 before the NFL was established. He later served as the coach of the Philadelphia Eagles from 1941 to 1950 and has been inducted into both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame .   However, he never appeared as a player in an official NFL game and is therefore not included in the list. Bert Kuczynski is one of a very small number of athletes to play Major League Baseball and in the NFL in the same year. In his senior year at Penn Kuczynski was on the NBC/ Look Magazine 1942 All-American team as an end. After graduation in May 1943 he pitched in six games for the Philadelphia Athletics and played for the Detroit Lions in the 1943 NFL season. After two years in the Navy, in 1946 he played for the Philadelphia Eagles . While working on his Masters in Education at Penn, he was an assistant coach in the football program.
