    Don't count the timeframe between the two players, because both players have broken the Cowboys hearts or to put it bluntly...(completely P.O.'d the most passionate fans) in some form or another...

    Example 1...Deion's flashy dashy performance in the NFC Championship Game before SB XXIX, even getting that non call for obvious pass interference on Irvin.

    Example 2... Terrell Owens posing on the star in Texas Stadium at midfield with the 49ers, and posing on the endzone star as an Eagle during that crushing MNF defeat...

    Which player between the two would you embrace more wearing the silver and blue...

    Deion all the way...Loved Him!

    But Owens is on the Team now and I'm happy about that.

    Hands down, Sanders.

    Difference being, he was simply a self promoting show boat...

    Owens doing his thing on the star was as bush league as it gets.

    Additionally, ya never heard anyone criticize Sanders as a teammate.

    Primetime won me over with his play. TO has yet to show me he can be a Cowboy.

    Deion.
    And guess who the only guy that could shut down TO consistently, if in his prime, would be?
    Same as above.

    Not sure that is entirely true.



    Who did Deion defend and shut down consistantly with TO's stats/physical abilities?

    One's the best DB of all time,

    The other's a phenomenal receiver for his era.

    I'm going with the GOAT.

    I'd rather stab toothpicks in my eyes than either be a Cowboy.

    Deion wrecked our salary cap. Hopefully TO won't wreck our team.

    Well, lets see, the only receiver I can remember having any kind of a big day against Deion was Rice when they played a regular season game in Dallas in the mid-to-late 90s. And I don't consider TO to be on Rice's level. And the play in particular I am thinking of was the slant Rice ran and scored from 50 or 60 yards out with Deion chasing him.
    Robert Brooks?
    Sterling Sharpe?
    Isaac Bruce?
    Anyone?
    Can you remember anyone having big games against Deion?
    There is a reason he is considered one of the all time greats at his position.

    Toothpicks break while trying to stab your eyes...I tried it before. Use needles...so much better!

    I absoutely loved having Primetime...I liked his antics, because he could back it up...and he did!

    What I like most about Primetime is when he signed that big contract with the RedStinks...and then he quit on them while LiL Danny Snyder still owed him 6 mil...

    He came out to the press and told them, "Tell Mr. Snyder I love him."

    :lmao: :lmao2: :laugh1:

    Primetime, at least to me, is so cool...and slick, too! And a damn good football player...

    :star:

    Deion did wonders for our defense. Enabled us to swing the double team on the otherside and allowed us to run plays using his athletic abilities.

    TO will have the same impact on our team on offense.

    Both players came with baggages. I did not particularly like Deion coming in as a Cowboy. But I outgrew it and it turned out for the better.

    The same with TO. Most here will forget his troubling past once he starts to produce on the field.

    Both players talked alot. Both players however, can produce on the field as well. Honestly, I think we should be fortunate for both.
