    I was torn between him and White for the fourth spot, and I'm not knocking either of them because both were better than a lot of people think they are.

    Go and watch Eli's playoff performances. Big deal.

    I love Aikman, but you look at what he had compared to Roger, White, Romo... I mean we're talking the NFL's best defense and leading rusher. How hard is it to play quarterback with that?

    White was a better athlete than Staubach but maybe not the winner Roger was. Hard to say.

    Staubach's team didn't have a great Doomsday Defense or great running attacks? You need to go back even further and watch his Super Bowl teams.

    Funny but I believe he is underrated. Aikman was a master at running the vertical offense. Of course he benefitted from an offense able to run the ball particularly up the middle, two WRs able to spread the field vertically, a great hybrid TE, and a WR who ran precise routes. The defense helped the offense of course but a ball control offense helped the defense as well. Aikman was able to read and react to defenses appropriately as well as put the ball into tight spots with velocity too I might add. He is the perfect QB for the vertical offense.

    Staubach's Cowboys teams didn't have to be better than the 92-93 Cowboys. They just had to be better than their competition ... and they were better with a hard-nosed defense, a timely running game and Captain Comeback, not to mention the guy in the funny hat. The only TEAM better during Dallas heyday was the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Meredith could light up a smoke on the sidelines, put it out, then come in and throw a TD pass.

    Jobber that darn auto correct got you on this one . When you were typing "white was a better punter than staubach", it slipped by you and actually read "better athlete. "
    Anyway just wanted to give you a heads up cause i know you wouldn't want a blasphemous post like that in your history.......:D

    LOL. No, Danny would keep Roger pissed off because he beat him at everything. They were very good friends and did a lot of stuff together. Danny beat him from basketball to ping pong which would piss Roger off who wanted to win at everything he did. Roger just was a winner on the field and poor Danny either didn't have the team like Roger or couldn't get what he had to play like Roger did. When Roger was in the huddle the guys knew he was going to lead them back. Of course Roger stunk it up a few times but he just made people believe in him.

    LOL. And he could make Landry so mad with his irreverent attitude about everything. Landry had a sense of humor just not on the sidelines. Meredith was a hoot. You know he spent time in the hospital post games more than once. Between the early teams being so bad and the rules allowing guys to knock the crap out of the QB (often illegally even then as well) Meredith got really beaten up badly. Meredith wasn't always so happy go lucky though. He could really blast guys in the huddle and didn't take any crap back either. He was a helluva QB and guy.

    Lol.. Yeah I wish Danny could have gotten over the hump. I think by the time he came around our doomsday d had gotten a little long in the tooth. If only e walls had cut in front of Clark instead of behind him. If only Pearson wore a tear away jersey... If only.
    I wish history could have been kinder to him and Meredith. Both great players that represented the star. Here's hoping tony doesn't suffer the same fate.

    Staubach led the league in passer rating on multiple occasions. He had the highest career passer rating when he retired. He posted a 104 -- higher than Romo ever has -- in 1971!

    He was the best quarterback of the NFL's best era. He had the best wheels of the group. And he won 2 Super Bowls.

    It isn't even in dispute who is number 1.

    We all love Meredith, but youre getting ahead of yourself if you actually place Dandy Don above Romo. Be real

    You can have your opinion. I can say that I believe it is idiotic. It is.

    Romo wouldn't of lasted long playing in AIkman's era IMO the rules now have greatly changed the game and I don't believe his body could of taken the hits those QBs took even with his elusiveness. The stats can't be compared due to the different eras and other variables but Aikman was clutch in the playoffs against top competition.
