    Can't knock any of the players you list.
    Note: The Dallas Cowboys went to the playoffs every single year but 1 from years 1965 thru 1983. Only 1 player listed from the entire era?

    Very Very hard to do this but if it's Players Only-

    1. Irvin - HOF'er in any era & could Motivate a Rock to Walk to water. No One stopped him, not even Deion.
    2. Randy White - HOF'er in any Era. Dominated & Intimidated the best the Game has Ever seen.
    3. Larry Allen - HOF'er in any era & it could have been at either Guard or Tackle. Best I've ever Seen blocking.
    4. Bob Lilly - again HOF'er in any era. The man was Born to control the Trenches.
    5. Roger Staubach - He's Montana mixed with Steve Young holding an American flag while eating Apple pie.

    NOW take this list, reverse 1-5 and I couldn't make 1 argument against it. It's that TOUGH to narrow it down to Just 5, much less put them in order.

    Hos, I think you nailed it.

    Any top 5 list would HAVE to include Lilly, Staubach and the Manster. And after that how could you not have Emmitt on the list? I imagine some might argue for Troy or Michael over Larry Allen, but its not a given either should bump him. LA is as good as any for that last top 5 spot IMO.

    My list is based off my favorites and the guys I've watched since I was a kid.

    1 Tony Dorsett- Nothing better than watching that #33 running the football when I was a kid
    2 Dez Bryant - Dez may go down as my all time favorite when his career is over. Just love the passion he has.
    3 Terrell Owens -Wish we could've had him earlier in his career but the guy put up great numbers in his time here.
    4 Michael Irvin - The Heart and Soul of the 90's dynasty era.
    5 Demarcus Ware- The Beast, Best pass rusher since Lawrence Taylor. Had the fastest first step I've ever seen off the ball.

    That's a bold selection of Witten for 00 but understand your choice. I guess the only other players in contention would be Romo and Ware though. I like it!
