Randy Cross Speaker Profile
Randy Cross Biography
Football analyst and former NFL offensive lineman, Randy Cross was born April 25, 1954, in Brooklyn, New York.
In 1976, he was selected in the second-round of the NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers; his 13-year career included three All-Pro selections, three Pro Bowl selections and three Super Bowl championships. Cross' last game as a player was Super Bowl XXIII in 1989. In 1980 Cross was named All-NFC by Pro Football Weekly and in 1981 he was a consensus All-Pro as the 49ers went to and won the Super Bowl. In 1982 he was Second-team All-NFC by UPI (and honor he won again in 1987, as a center). Cross was a key contributor on the final 89-yard drive that led to the play that has been immortalized as The Catch in the 1982 NFC Playoffs versus the Dallas Cowboys. The Catch, as the play has since been named by sportscasters, reminded older 49er fans of the Alley-oop passes that Y.A. Tittle threw to lanky receiver R.C. Owens back in the 1950s. A picture of Clark's leap in the air taken by Walter Iooss, Jr. appeared on the cover of that week's Sports Illustrated and was also featured in an Autumn 2005 commercial for Gatorade.
From 1989-1993, Cross was a member of the CBS Sports team that covered the NFC playoffs and Super Bowl XXVI. In addition, he served as an analyst for CBS Radio Sports' coverage of Super Bowl XXIV.
Cross left CBS (following their loss of the NFC package to FOX) to join NBC Sports as a football analyst for NFL telecasts and a part-time analyst for Notre Dame football games. In 1998, he returned to CBS Sports as a game analyst before serving as a studio analyst on The NFL Today from 1999-2001. He eventually returned to his game analyst duties in 2002. He currently co-hosts The Opening Drive with Bob Papa on the Sirius Radio NFL Network.
