    Asking at the Zone IS my idea of online research.

    In the future I'll be sure to screen all my questions with you, ok?

    You obviously didn't read my initial post. Yes, I've heard of him. Couldn't tell you anything other than the guy's name, though.

    They don't show too many Bob Lilly highlights nowadays...sorry if I miss them.

    See? I never would have seen this cool story that made me smile if I'd just googled the guy's name. That being said, the fact that so many of you were turds in response to my question probably has ended any chance of me (or anyone else) asking you guys stuff in the future. Those of you that answered with no B.S., thank you. I enjoyed reading your memories.

    That sign is still there, on the corner in front of the Courthouse. It kind of makes me feel close to the Cowboys history just to be driving through there.

    By the way, I'm the same age as the guy that started this thread and I'm glad he asked the question. I have seen the NFL Films shows about the older teams, but the stories that are being told here are just as good.

    I think it'd be great to start a thread like this each week, on different players, just to get to read the stories each of us has.

    Totally agree with this post and CBZ's.

    He's a young fan that wants to learn more about perhaps Dallas' greatest player. A lot of us love posts like this because we like to relive some of this stuff.

    Lilly used to live in the same town I do now and I had the privilege of meeting him and spending a little bit of time with him.

    For a defensive lineman, I think his game was surprisingly subtle. His strength was natural and underrated and his quickness was probably his best asset. He was also instinctive and smart.

    He was the one player who Landry seemed almost in awe of. He was the perfect player for an innovative defensive mind like Landry.

    Lilly also is a great photographer and has been all over the Southwest getting award-winning shots. When I moved here, one of the first things I did was visit his gallery and buy a black-and-white print of a windmill in a wheat field.

    And something Thumper alluded to earlier, Lilly has a great testimony.

    True about his photography . Funny thing is it all started when he was named to the Kodak All American team, each guy was given a kodak camera and from there Lilly's interest in photography took off.

    He's got an excellent book of his photography of his years with the Cowboys...

    It is a picture history of the forbearers of "America's Team"... a must have for those that enjoy Cowboys history...

    Warning... there is a picture of Meredith's bare arse wearing a jock strap, so you kids beware... :D

    I applaud the idea. The fact that some folks here don't know the history of this team should not be a slight on them. The only stupid question is the one that doesn't get asked. Perhaps a "cowboy's History Zone" might be appropriate.

    I agreed with you up until you said "The only stupid question is the one that doesn't get asked" Have you heard some of the media interviews over the last few years? :lmao2: Stupid question get asked.
