    There is an obvious ROH name missing Mr. Jones.

    Thanks so much for posting these, bbgun.


    I wish I was about 12-13 years older and had been able to watch Roger play live. I try to put myself there from the stories my dad has told me growing up, but it's not the same.

    I do feel very thankful to have "grown up" with the triplets though. The chances of seeing a trifecta like that again is slim to none.

    Michael Irvin #3? Ridiculous! I'd put him at #8 or even lower.

    Where is Mel Renfro? Chuck Howley? Harvey Martin? Don Perkins?

    That series was so much fun. Thanks bb.

    Tom Landry would want the list to be all players. You can bet your butt on that.

    10. Wright
    9. Renfro
    8. Irvin
    7. Allen
    6. Aikman
    5. Dorsett
    4. White
    3. Smith
    2. Lilly
    1. Staubach

    Ridiculous? The teams all time leading receiver, the heart and soul of a dynasty that won 3 championships in a 4 year span, and it's ridiculous that he's #3?

    Maybe some people wouldn't have him as high, and there is nothing wrong with that, but it's hardly ridiculous that NFL Network did.

    That just tells you how blessed we've been as an organization. Even a Top 15 list would omit some choice names.

    No love for Drew? How can Wright or Renfro possibly be better Cowboys than Drew?

    I'm just curious is all. Everyone has their own unique set of standards for what makes certain Cowboys more important and so I'm interested to see what makes you place them higher than Drew.

    Lilly and White are obviously both top 5. That's probably exactly how I'd put them, except I'd flip Aikman and Dorsett.

    And thanks bb

    Well Wright and Renfro ARE HOFers. I'm guessing that's a start.

    My only problem with your list is that Bob Hayes isn't on there. He is a ROH member, a HOFer and caused the entire NFL to change the way they play defense. I would replace Allen with Hayes IMO.

    Plus, all three play radically different positions, so I'm not sure how anyone can definitively state that one is better than the others.

    I think LA is the best OG to ever play the game and has to be on my list. Simply too dominant.

    No question, I think he was the best guard as well. But was he the in the top ten at the expense of Hayes? It's a great debate with no clear cut answer and it's all a matter of opinion, but I would have to find include Hayes.

    Thanks a ton BBgun...

    a top ten list of cowboy players is just too hard to do...I could build atleast 2 devastating teams that could beat anything else any team could come up with...

    for example just skill positions and without using any players now playing

    Team A
    Staubach
    Dorsett
    Hayes
    Pearson
    Dupree
    W.Garrett

    Team B
    Aikman
    Moose
    Smith
    Irvin
    Hill
    Cosby

    and just for shiites and grins

    Team C
    Dandy Don
    Calvin Hill
    Newhouse
    Novachek


    Team D
    Danny White
    Herschel Walker
    Ron Springs


    wow just amazing
