From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia...

Thomas Francis Kramer (born March 7, 1955 in San Antonio, Texas) is an American former professional football player who was a quarterback in the NFL from 1977-1990.

Kramer graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in San Antonio where he guided the Volunteers to a 28-27 1971 UIL 4A State title over Wichita Falls. He played collegiately at Rice University and was selected by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round (27th overall) of the 1977 NFL Draft after being named MVP of the 1977 Senior Bowl.

NFL career

Kramer became the starting quarterback for the Vikings before the 1979 NFL season after Fran Tarkenton retired. He earned the nickname "Two Minute Tommy" for many late game come-from-behind victories.

Throughout his career with the Vikings, Kramer suffered on the field injuries, resulting in many missed games for the team during the mid 1980s. He was selected to the Pro Bowl following the 1986 season, in which he was the highest rated quarterback in the NFL. Kramer was the first NFL quarterback to throw for over 450 yards in a game twice, and he once threw six touchdowns in a single game versus the Green Bay Packers. He was released by the Vikings after the 1989 season and was signed by the New Orleans Saints in 1990. He appeared in only one game for the Saints and retired after the 1990 season. He also has a very attractive daughter named Natalie Kramer
