    I too wish we had a 60-man roster limit. :)

    I can see your logic.

    For me Barnes would never have been in the picture - it seems like all of my memories of him were when he was getting burned.

    Wow - so many GLARING omissions:

    Bob Hayes - the zone defense was invented specifically because of Hayes - teams had no way to handle his speed otherwise.

    Bob Lilly - that's the equivalent of omitting Staubach or Emmitt Smith.

    Harvey Martin - how can Marcus Spears be on the list at DE ahead of Harvey Martin ..... hell, Spears hasn't even started a full season for Dallas yet and Martin was the best pass rusher the Cowboys have ever had. For that matter, Jeffcoat and George Andrie would easily be ahead of Spears.

    Everson Walls - one of the top cover corners of his time. Larry Brown, on the other hand, had one outstanding Super Bowl.

    Cornell Green - same comment as on Walls.

    Cliff Harris - SI named him to it's top all-time NFL team several years ago.

    And some puzzling inclusions:

    Terrell Owens - a total of 2 games with the Cowboys.

    Leon Lett - great talent, but out with drug problems much of his career. No way he beats out Jethro Pugh or Larry Cole, much less Bob Lilly.

    Marcus Spears - less than one full season as a starter with Dallas, and hasn't done anything spectacular thus far.

    Demarcus Ware - barely over one full season with Dallas, and although he has shown potential he has shown a lack of consistency as well.

    Larry Brown - one great Super Bowl isn't enough to make a merely decent player rise about Everson Walls and Cornell Green - not even close.

    Toby Gowin - this one draws a big "HUH?". He was solid his first time with Dallas and very weak the second time around. Danny White, Mike Saxon and our current punter, McBriar are among those that are/were much better.

    Vanderjagt - another big "HUH?" The guy has played in ONE game and kicked ONE FG as a Cowboy.

    Terrence Newman at KR - Since you listed Deion as PR I assume this is limited to kickoff returns ...... how many times have you ever seen Newman return a kickoff for Dallas. I'm thinking ...... NEVER maybe?

    WIERD list .......
