    For those who missed this on TV.

    Fox Sports Southwest aired a clip of an arena flag football game for charity between Tom Landry players (Staubach, Herschel, Pearson) and Jimmy Johnson players (Aikman, Irvin, Novacek). Landry players won, and Staubach's still faking people out.

    Also, quick blurb at the end by Aikman about the draft, and how he thinks we need to upgrade our offense with new skill players.

    (EDIT: I'm aware Irvin was drafted by Landry, but I consider him one of JJ's guys since he played at Miami with him and blossomed into the "Playmaker" when JJ was coach.)

    I was thinking the same thing. He retired way too early IMO.

    edit: Watched Herschel on "Pros vs Joes" and he still looks like he is in phenominal shape.

    Roger is still an artist. Pump fake right, move left pump fake left, throw back right to the wide open Drew Pearson.

    Simply the best I ever saw, still.

    Same with the screen pass when Dallas would run screen right/screen left in which Roger would pump fake the screen to the right side do a spin move and toss the screen out to the left. During those days the Dallas screens were a thing of beauty

    Preston Pearson and Roger Staubach ran the best screen pass of all time. It was almost an automatic 1st down.

    Damn I miss those days and those players.

    As well as Dorsett who I thought one of the best backs at running screens, in large part because of his quick acceleration and cutting ability

    Ya know, they got so good at those kinds of things people started anticipating the plays. You knew there would be a few quick pitches to Dorsett; you knew there would be a screen pass or two..

    I would agree with other posters that Roger retired before he done as a football player; but to me that's probably the way it should be done. The player should have some kind of "instinct" that says he's close to the end and retire.

    Roger pulled it off. More power to him. He can enjoy 60, unlike some other retirees.

    The screen pass is a product of a mobile and intelligent O-Line. Something we haven't had since Landry's days as Jimmy preferred the bigger road-grader types.

    After the doctors told Roger it would be best to retire due to his concussion Roger was not willing to risk it and no one can blame him for that. He now runs one of the biggest commercial real estate businesses in Texas and talk of one day entering politics. It was a sad day though when Roger announced his retirement
