    I’d take

    Preston Pearson over Hershel Walker
    Golden Richards over Keyshawn Johnson
    Herb Scott over Nate Newton
    Jethro Pugh over Leon Lett
    Clint Longly over Danny White (one game activation from PS)
    And Special Teams are just not special without Bill Bates.

    Great edits, great thread. I am a huge Danny White fan, but Meredith deserves the #3 spot.

    Cornell Green should replace Newman and Jordan has got to be in the mix somewhere at LB.

    LMAO

    Yeah, I agree. 4 WRs was easy. 5 a bit harder, 6 was just plain silly. I have to admit talent wise he is up there. That is the only reason I place him there.

    I have Danny there because he can punt too.

    I removed Newman quite a while back.

    Jordan is there.

    I have Preston and Herschel.
    Scott and Pugh are definite candidates.

    Bates being a safety with the guys we've had sort of doomed him.

    Also, I didn't catch the coaches before, Jimmy Johnson has never, ever coached offense. He has admitted that he knows nothing about offense and that he was very lucky that he selected Norv Turner to replace Shula. Turner would be my #1 offensive coordinator. Landry and BP are the ones with experience calling plays even though they were defensive coaches.

    But Jordan should be the starting MLB and Lockhart, Dat, and Coakley probably shouldn't be on it. My opinion anyway. They stick out like a sore thumb.

    I think I'm more embarrassed at forgetting Howley than any of the other errors.

    Don Perkins has been in there at FB since the very first list. No one else was even an option.

    I moved Jordan. Added Coakley and removed Dat and Lockhart.

    We have 5 OLBs right now. I would drop Coakley to add a TE.

    Hey I missed Howley. It happens.

    I've done a lot of editting on the list since the original. Let me know what you think.

    I'd take Ralph Neely over Flozell
    RALPH NEELY T
    1965-77
    Pro Bowls: two
    Notable: Started in three SBs, one win. First Cowboy tackle to make the Pro Bowl and was part of the same starting unit from '67-74.

    Fitzgerald over Manders,
    but thats a personal decision..........Never go against family :D

    what about Dave Edwards at OLB. I like him better then Dexter
    DAVE EDWARDS OLB
    1963-75
    Notable: Started in three SBs, one win. Passed over in the NFL's 20-round draft in 1962, he went on to play along with Chuck Howley and Lee Roy Jordan for more than 10 years.

    The FB position makes you realize how strong we were in the past........
    Garrison and Newhouse dont get a mention

    List looks good Hos, I would probably make a few changes.

    I would take Don Meredith over Danny White and maybe even Troy Aikman. Sheer competitor and just a flat out great leader on the football field. He doesn't have Aikman and White's number, but he never had the talent on offense that those guys had either.

    I would take either Flo or Tuinei off the list and put Neely in instead.

    Not a popular decision, but I would take the smallish, but big hearted Dave Manders out and put John Fitzgerald in his place. Personally, I think Ray Donaldson was better then all of them, but only played a couple of years.

    Probably not popular decision, but I would think about replacing George Andrie with Jim Jeffcoat. Jeffcoat put up some amazing numbers but he is almost forgetten because of the time he played.

    Roy Williams on the list just kind of bugs me a little bit :).

    I would do this..

    Corners - Deion Sanders, Everson Walls, Don Bishop, Cornell Green, Kevin Smith
    Free Safeties - Cliff Harris, Mel Renfro
    Strong Safeties - Darren Woodson, Charlie Waters

    At kicker, I probably would put Rafeal Septien
    At punter, maybe Mike Saxon

    - Mike G.
