    A true champion and human being.....he is the reason I am a Cowboy fanatic. He could have played a few more years but the concussions were becoming more common.

    I was a young man when Roger retired. I remember having a hard time with that announcement. I even asked my dad if Roger was allowed to do that. I couldn't imagine #12 not being our QB.

    I wasn't born yet. I do still remember Aikman announcing his retirement though. That was the end of an era for me.

    I can still remember a lot of that speech by heart. And I still get a little chocked up thinking about it. Yep, I am a geek.

    I cannot lie...I was really happy that Danny White was going to be our QB. To this day, I think Danny is the most underrated QB in Cowboy history...maybe NFL history.

    'RG12' - I am one of those in your 25%. However, I immediately disagreed with your opinion about Staubach being the most influential player creating the Cowboys popularity. No doubt - his football story from HS - College - Pros - is legendary; but his Dallas Cowboys career is intertwined with that of a number of great teammates that wowed me with their play to continually strive for the NFL Championship.

    I wish he did this on April 1st, 1980. Then yelled April Fools!!!!!!!!!!

    But Danny White did well with 3 straight NFC Championship games which the Arlington Jonesboys have not seen in 25 years.
