The Dallas Cowboys and the NFL community are continuing to mourn the loss of Pro Football Hall of Fame coach and broadcaster John Madden after he suddenly died on Tuesday. Madden was an incomparable and prominent figure in the football and sports media worlds and leaves a lasting legacy behind him.
After his impressive coaching career with the Oakland Raiders, Madden headed to the booth to broadcast football games for three decades. The former coach was fun, enthusiastic, and had many quotable moments while calling games.
He worked in the booth alongside broadcasting legends like Al Michaels, Vin Scully, Dick Stockton, and Pat Summerall. Madden was the first sportscaster to work for all four major networks.
Madden had many classic moments while narrating Cowboys games. Let’s take a look at some of his most memorable ones.
4. Madden laughs at Larry Allen’s dominance against Colts
During a Cowboys vs Colts game in 1999, Madden literally giggled on the air about how dominant Hall of Famer Larry Allen was on the field. As he laughs, Madden says “he hates to make this a Larry Allen highlight film,” but continues to do so anyway saying he could feel the hits he provided from the broadcast booth.
