    What makes you think I did that in one day? I took notes over several days and thought about what I wanted to do. From there it has been about discussing it with folks and listening to what they have to say.

    I would have to agree with this... I also agree with Hollywood getting the nod over Eugene the Hitting Machine Lockhardt... Eugene was a middle backer so should make a lot of tackles...but Hollywood was the most talented LB I ever saw or have seen including LT...he was miscast as a Strong side backer and should have been a weak side backer and allowed to rush the QB more..just an all-timer...also I agree with Hos.. Lett for a 2 year period was unblockable...Drugs did them both in

    Punters are football players in the same sense that waitors are chefs...

    impressive list, heres my 2 cents

    #23 james jones...im drawing a blank on him, was thinking he was #30
    #26 i would debate micheal downs over preston pearson
    #51 i would take ken norton jr over dave manders
    #56 i think i would go with Hollywood also, by a hair over Lockhart
    #65 i dont remember much about Peterson, would take Gurode
    #80 i liked Tony Hill, but would give the nod to Harper that SF game was huge

    I would submit the following for your approval:

    #10 Ron Widby
    #19 Clint Longley - LOL!!!
    #20 Ron Springs
    #22 Bob Hayes - The first and still the best!
    #52 Dave Edwards
    #88 Drew Pearson - Same reason as Hayes!

    Good job on the list. Strong arguments can be made either way on many of these numbers.

    I'd switch No. 3 back to Cunningham. He was a first-team All-Pro in 1997, he holds the team record for field goals made in a season, and he and Emmitt are the only players in team history with two seasons of more than 125 points.

    As a Cowboy, Lance Rentzel was a much better #19 than Lance Alworth.

    Uh...personal problems aside.

    Adderly just was not around long enough. Just 3 seasons. Preston was a Cowboy for 6. Michael Downs was one for 8 and had a good career. Kevin Smith also put in 8 years and was a key addition to the early 90s teams. The #26 is a strong number.

    No question. Put Hill on those 90s Cowboys in place of Harper and that offense is even better.

    Actually an argument could be made for Howley. He is the only person to ever win Superbowl MVP for a losing team. Whereas Randy White had to split his MVP honor with Harvey Martin. LOL

    No, I do not put Howley above White but he certainly deserves an honorable mention.

    I was looking for someone (anyone) to replace Owens at #81 and unfortunately the best I could do was Rocket Ishmal. But I would have to argue that thus far the Rocket has done more for the Cowboys than Owens since Owens has been here for only one year.

    Number 81 has truely NOT had an illustrious history for the 'Boys.

    BTW in light of the arguements made for some of the alltime greats who did not make the list such as #22 Bob Hayes (RoH and Should be HoF), #54 Chuck Howley (RoH and at least HoF consideration) #88 Drew Pearson (HoF All '70's Team...how is he not in HoF?...and would be RoH except for getting on Jerry's bad side in a business deal) and #14 Craig Morton (quarterbacked the Cowboys to a Superbowl and I contend was better than LeBaron for us). I submit that we need an honorable mention catagory at least for numbers that have had more than one great Cowboy wear them.
