Many statisticians will point to the success the Cowboys continued to enjoy, even after Roger retired, as proof of the working effect of Tom Landry's system and his controlling the play calling. Still, I can't help but believe Staubach would've brought us even more success, taking nothing away from the effort Danny White gave.
Staubach respected Landry, though, whether he agreed w/ TL's hard and fast position about play calling or not, and retired with class.
don't know where you got the idea that play calling had anything to do with it but it was all about the concussions. The fact you claim he retired too young shows how little you know
