Holy mother of Tom Landry. Love 'em or hate 'em, this team has had a lot of talent over the years.

Doomsday poll on the way.

Lee Roy Jordan attended Alabama under Coach Bear Bryant. On the first day of practice, the Bear lined up all 100 of his recruits on one goal line. He stated , "Men, this drill is designed to see who our really tough guys are. In the other endzone, I have placed 4 footballs. When I say go, sprint down the field and try to get one." Ten minutes later, Lee Roy Jordan walked up to the coach and gave him 3 footballs.

You may not like him, but he was one of the most talented players I've ever seen.

larry allen?


He was almost in my top three. Deion Sanders and Randy White were the top two, and then I was debating between Bob Lilly, Larry Allen, Emmitt Smith, and my personal favorite Everson Walls.

I agree to a point, but have you ever seen Deion try and tackle someone? ROFL

I voted for Staubach, Smith, and Dorsett. There really are way too many to limit it to just 3 IMO.

Roger Staubach,darryl johnson and trerrance newman my picks.

I hated it when Staubach would be flipping around on the ground like he had a broken spine everytime he got hit good. They would cart him off the field only to come back into the game 2 plays later to the roar of the crowd and the amazement of the announcers like it was some ****ing miracle or something. " That Staubach sure is tough" Give me a flippin break.

Staubach was the best QB I saw play before Montana came along. Also went with Randy White and Dorsett.

God I hate to read shit like that...The whole story is that I was an anti-Washington Redskins fan. So the Cowboys were my initial team purely by default, because they were the Redskins arch rival. I stopped following them after their second superbowl win, didn't watch the NFL very much in college. When I moved here I got into the game again.

Well landry taught Staubach that flop cause he gets off on abusing the system.

Emitt is a lock
Then is gets hard.

Lilly, Staubach, Dorsett, Aikmen....man you could make an argument for all of them

This was pretty easy for me.

Emmitt is a no brainer.

You have to choose a QB, and Staubach beats Aikman easy.

Then I chose Bob Hayes because he changed the game of football.

Lance Rentzel, Nate Newton & Michael Irvin. The all-parole team.

When a kicker is your team's biggest criminal, I think that beats the hell out of a little drug infraction.

Septien loved children.

Lee Roy, Manster and Walt Garrison.

Whoever voted for Irvin and Sanders needs to have thier eyes picked out by crows.

You mean he was Steve McNair before Steve McNair was Steve McNair?



This vote is surprising to me. There are a lot of players on this list that really are prototypes for their position: Randy White, Bob Lilly, Deion Sanders, Larry Allen, etc. I figured that there would be a much closer vote. (I didn't vote for any of the three leading voters, by the way.)

Hell, you could almost make a point for Herschel Walker. The damn Vikings traded something like 12 picks for his arse, which turned into the Cowboys dominance in the early '90s................

Going to the USFL was a career mistake for Walker. I wonder what his stats would've been if he'd been in the NFL all those years.

I understand the money issue, though. I think he got paid some insane amount at the time to be Donald Trump's running back/butler.

Yep. I guess that's why they're called the glory positions.


Randy White was just frightening when he played, and I enjoyed the article a while back about opposing players getting "Allenitis" when they were scheduled to play across from Allen.

Herschel Walker really is who made the Cowboys of Jimmy Johnson era, Maybe he could be the most valuable trader or sumthing...

I think I'm going to be sick. Troy Aikman has more votes than Randy White and Bob Lilly.

Yeah, that's disgusting. Aikman was just Trent Green with a better arm and a defense.
