    I honestly don't think he will, unless he has some success in big games.

    Incredible game I was 11 and was awestruck. It was a MNF game and a thriller- that game-combined with the NFC Title loss to the Niners made me a Cowboys fan for life

    I don't know man- he will have over 35000 passing yards minimum when its all said and done and hold every Cowboys passing record by leaps and bounds. It's unfortunate he might not have a ring, but no denying his thrilling career as a Cowboy

    Absolutely, the guy has been amazing from a statistical stand point, and would probably be the best QB in the history of at least 20 other franchises. But being a Cowboy, the ring is the only thing that matters at the end of the day. I'm not sure that he even has to get to that point, just win some big games when the lights are shining, he doesn't really have that HoF/RoH type moment in his career yet.

    it's incredibly sad to say- but you could argue his chance for that was three weeks ago vs Denver

    Herb Scott and Cornell Green are the most under rated Cowboys of all time.

    What year was the MNF game vs the Raiders that Danny White caught a TD pass? The Cowboys lost that game, but that's another game that sticks out to me as an all time classic

    I like everyone on the list except Glover. Wasn't that guy the star of the defense during his Cowboy days, and in the Pro Bowl every year? I think he got his due.

    Yeah, and that's what sucks. To this point in his career, all most people remember him for is the bad (Seattle, Washington, blown playoff games, etc...). While we recognize that it's not totally his fault, the media and opposing fans are always going to point to him and laugh. I really think that the proverbial "window" is closing, and this year might be his best opportunity to change a lot of people's minds. The guy has everything he needs to be successful: good OL, great WR corps, QB-friendly system, average-good defense backing him up, and a very weak division, and I'd even argue conference.

    Romo and Spencer ought to be on some kind of underrated list. I don't really agree with TO, he was pretty dominant in Dallas and it definitely didn't go unnoticed.

    I guess it depends on how you define "underrated". Underrated by Cowboys' fans or football fans in general.

    I have to agree with every one of your points. Romo hasn't been unclutch but man his failures are with the world watching. Talk about a fishbowl effect, and you have to wonder if he doesn't know it and let it affect his play. I never thought I'd say this but I think he gets tight now, I do.

    Still remember Roger hitting him for winning TD vs Washington giving Dallas the division.

    I like your changes. And this is what is great about being a Cowboys fan... what other teams have had names like these that are forgotten about? You could field a Super Bowl championship team with the names on our 4th string all time team

    can I add Darren Woodson to these two? Or is he too high profile and too close to HOF status?
