    Overall, Roger of course.


    Non-QB. I couldn't argue with Irvin, Emmitt, Manster, or Haley.

    I take back everything I just said. Non-QB. TOM LANDRY!

    Emmitt in his prime. Average over 4 yards per carry, control the clock, control the game.

    or somebody who hasn't been mentioned yet, Deion Sanders.

    Primetime in his prime, that was a thing of beauty.

    What? He's probably going to hold a bunch of Cowboys passing records after this season.

    I agree.

    Unless the game undergoes a serious revolution/evolution, a quarterback who can buy time with his feet, scan the field and throw accurately to his receivers will be a timeless talent.

    Montana and Staubach would have fit any era.

    I go with Staubach. Was Montana and Elway before Montana and Elway.

    As much as I love Tom Landry (interviewed him once), he had the tendency to "overprepare" his teams, especially in the Super Bowl.

    roger was like a fire-and-brimstone minister... despite being a "good catholic".

    20 seconds in the huddle pews and the faithful right down to the average viewer/fan knew the cowboys were gonna score to win it.

    aikman never had the charisma and leadership skills of roger. and i love aikman.

    and, by the way, roger had an amazingly tight deep ball. he couldn't drive it with near the velocity of troy. but he had a glorious touch.

    sorry, emmitt... roger's the best cowboy i ever saw.

    Staubach is a no brainer...Qb is the most important position and hardest to fill, so you put in a Hall of Famer who had plenty of arm, plenty of moxie, and unlike Aikman, could carry a team because he was as mobile or more mobile than most guys today.

    With him as my all time QB, building a SB team around him wouldn't be all that difficult.

    My answer was Roger Staubach hands down. But since it's been qualified to non-QBs I'd have to say Deion. Half the field is covered and punt returns are field-position/game changing plays once again.
