    So many to choose from...
    All time would be The Manster #54 Randy White ..
    Had his number all through pop Warner and high school football

    After that would be a tie between the triplets of the 70's stauhbach, Dorsett and Pearson
    And the triplets of the 90's .. Aikman, Irvin and smith

    Honorable mentions would be Woodson , Renfro, bates , too tall, novacek, moose

    Walker somewhere just because of his trade value we got from Vikings

    Bill Bates and Emmitt. Two guys who prove that playing with heart trumps playing with 'swagger'.

    I said something similar to my wife last night because I wanted to watch NFL films footage of Super Bowl XII--a game that was played before I was old enough to pay attention and before she was born--I told her that we should celebrate the past, because there is not much of a future (at least on the immediate horizon).

    Tony Dorsett is my favorite but only by a very small margin over Staubach and Irvin. The reason for Tony Dorsett was he was a game changer on any play that got the ball into his hands. He could take it to the house and could break tackles and cut back and get out of incredible situations that appeared he was going get tackled only to emerge and break free of the pack he was just in, to score or run a long ways before finally being tackled. I never doubted Tony having followed him at Pitt as much as TV would allow back then as well as sports magazines I was delighted, no ecstatic that we drafted him. Tony Dorsett was the epitomy of excitement and I suspect teams used to fear him as well. Tony made things look so easy that one could have easily observed that anyone could do what he did, that would have been a false observant however. I feel privileged to have witnessed Anthony "TD" Dorsett's run for glory whilst playing for my beloved Dallas Cowboys!

    I just saw the "least" in the post I replied to and can't delete my post. Mods feel free to delete it for me. My bad.

    The thing about Roger is you knew the Cowboys were never really out of a game as long as #12 was in the game. Captain Comeback was earned by Staubach for his resilient competitive mannerism in taking his team up and down the field in crunch time to get the win. Loved watching Roger a lot along with Tony D!

    Jay Novacek. For so may reasons. His signing in Plan B free agency (remember that?) was a master stroke by Jimmy (though we didn't know it at the time) and the first sign that maybe that college coach knew what he was doing. Plus, Novacek was Troy's security blanket and clutch as hell. He was Witten before there was Witten. Finally, he'd catch a pass and always seem to run like he had a stumble in his gait. Hilarious. But he was my absolute favorite player of the 90's Cowboys. And he used to hold for FGs! That's all why I use his name as my member name.
