After spending his entire career with the Cardinals, Smith signed with Dallas in 1978. Although the 38-year old Smith was used only as a blocking tight end in the goal line formation and didn't catch a pass during the entire season, joining Dallas allowed him to make his first(and only) trip to the NFL Super Bowl(The Cardinals only made the playoffs twice in his 15 seasons, and they lost both times in the firs round). Unfortunately, this turned out to leave a bitter mark on his career, as he ended up being remembered for commiting one of the most famous errors in Super Bowl history. With his team trailing the Pittsburgh Steelers 21-14 in the third quarter of Super Bowl XIII, Smith dropped a third down pass in the end zone from quarterback Roger Staubach. Because of the drop, the Cowboys had to settle for a field goal to make the score 21-17. The Cowboys ended up losing the game by 4 points, 35-31, and Smith retired before the start of the next season.
