    In my opinion it depends on the era or who you've actually seen play. This type of thread will always bring about a good discussion as well as a multitude of arguments. If you are an 80's baby like myself you should be able to come up with a nice smorgasbord.

    Well said indeed sir. Others who leave off Aikman, forget he was the QB who led us to 3 Superbowl wins.

    Personally for all of you who added Deion Sanders, I think your fan cards should be revoked. :)

    Seriously though he isn't a top 5 Dallas Cowboy of all time. Top 5 cb yes not Cowboy. Jmo

    How can you leave arguably the best offensive lineman to ever play off the list? Larry Allen

    For Players only, that list does it for me. All list must start with Emmit, Roger and Lilly,

    Going only by 90s. Was too young for 70s teams.

    Greatest? ... I only have three.

    Emmitt
    Troy
    Irvin

    Wish we would have had a home grown Lawrence Taylor.

    Setting aside a player's skill set and just considering what intangibles they brought to the team, the ones that seem to lacking on this version of the team, Staubach, Aikman, Lily, R. White, Irvin. Those five were so fiercely competitive, they made the teams better and led them to win.
