Im fine with Deion at 10 being that hes my favorite player ever and in his prime you really couldnt find a better corner
He’d be much higher on the list based on career achievement and ability. Just hard to consider him a Cowboy. More than half of what he achieved was with other teams.

The algorithm is busted if it hasn't accounted for the fact that Dexter Coakley has been traded for approximatly half the league over the last decade. That has to push his value up the list. And don't get me started on David Buehler, who probably wrote his own AI infrastructure with his right hand while he used his left hand to pummel Chuck Norris within an inch of his life. He should be top 10 easily.

Fine list of players. I'd put this list of players against any other teams.

The Dallas Cowboys have had many legendary players throughout their history. Here are some of the greatest Dallas Cowboys players of all time:
  1. Roger Staubach: Staubach is widely regarded as one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. He led the Cowboys to two Super Bowl victories (VI and XII) and was known for his ability to engineer come-from-behind victories.
  2. Emmitt Smith: Smith is the NFL's all-time leading rusher and was the cornerstone of the Cowboys' dominant offense in the 1990s. He played a vital role in the team's three Super Bowl victories (XXVII, XXVIII, and XXX).
  3. Troy Aikman: Aikman was the quarterback during the Cowboys' dynasty of the 1990s. He led the team to three Super Bowl wins (XXVII, XXVIII, and XXX) and was known for his accuracy and leadership on the field.
  4. Michael Irvin: Irvin was the emotional leader of the Cowboys' dominant offense in the 1990s. He was a key component of the team's three Super Bowl victories (XXVII, XXVIII, and XXX) and was known for his exceptional route-running and big-play ability.
  5. Bob Lilly: Known as "Mr. Cowboy," Lilly was the anchor of the Cowboys' defense in the 1960s and 1970s. He was the first player inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame who spent his entire career with the Cowboys and was a key part of the team's Super Bowl VI victory.
  6. Randy White: White, also known as the "Manster," was a dominant defensive tackle for the Cowboys. He played a crucial role in the team's Super Bowl XII victory and was a nine-time Pro Bowler.
  7. Tony Dorsett: Dorsett was a dynamic running back who played for the Cowboys from 1977 to 1987. He helped the team win Super Bowl XII and was known for his speed and elusiveness.
  8. Larry Allen: Allen was a dominant offensive lineman who played for the Cowboys from 1994 to 2005. He was known for his strength and athleticism and was a key part of the team's success in the 1990s, including their Super Bowl XXX victory.
  9. Mel Renfro: Renfro was a versatile defensive back who played for the Cowboys from 1964 to 1977. He was a 10-time Pro Bowler and played a significant role in the team's Super Bowl VI victory.
  10. Deion Sanders: Sanders played for the Cowboys from 1995 to 1999 and was one of the most electrifying players in NFL history. He helped the team win Super Bowl XXX and was known for his exceptional speed and coverage skills.
These are just a few of the greatest Dallas Cowboys players of all time, and there are many other notable players who have contributed to the team's success over the years.

It seems to be as much a list of big-name Cowboys as it is quality Cowboys. Of course, it says these are "some of the greatest," so that qualifier is in place. It just looks like the only old-timers on there are those who are most widely known. I'd put Randy White on there ahead of Deion, but he's one of several I'd consider.

Whoops, White is on there. Maybe Bullet Bob instead.

There's like 10 Ring Of Honor members not on that list that I'd have before Deion. I don't view him as any more of a mercenary than say Stephon Gilmore who's on his 5th team, but Deion was a great player, not a great Cowboy.
What do you mean he wasn't a great Cowboy? He was great in Dallas.

I don't get how people wouldn't be. Has to be some hatred toward him. Loved Deion as a Cowboy. He's one of the greatest players of all time and he was a Cowboy....

Not on my part it ,is simply a matter of the following: not drafted by the Cowboys. Played 12 years and only 5 years a Cowboy. Most importantly in a 188 game career only 63 as a Cowboy. To me he is more Atlanta Falcon than Cowboy and I take nothing away from him as a HOF player. Just my opinion and all taken straight from his pro football reference page. https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/S/SandDe00.htm

You know I just can't relate. You guys come from a different era of football than me. My heyday is the Campo years lol. I was barely alive when Emmitt got drafted so none of those guys were homegrown for me lol.

But even then....I can understand what you're saying but the greatest cornerback of all time isn't a top 10 Cowboy? Even if it was a limited time?

Deion shouldn’t be on the list he jumped on board with the Cowboys 7 years into his career. I’m only counting the players we drafted and developed. I think Bob Lilly should be third on the list.

However, based on their impact on the team's success and their contributions to the franchise, here is a subjective list in descending order:

  1. Roger Staubach (Quarterback)
  2. Emmitt Smith (Running Back)
  3. Troy Aikman (Quarterback)
  4. Bob Lilly (Defensive Tackle)
  5. Larry Allen (Offensive Guard)
  6. Michael Irvin (Wide Receiver)
  7. Randy White (Defensive Tackle)
  8. Tony Dorsett (Running Back)
  9. Mel Renfro (Defensive Back)
  10. DeMarcus Ware (Defensive End/Linebacker)

To regain dominance like the Dallas Cowboys teams of the 1970s, the franchise can consider the following strategies:

Strong Leadership: Establish strong leadership within the organization, including the coaching staff, front office, and ownership. Foster a culture of accountability, discipline, and a winning mindset.

Talent Acquisition: Focus on building a talented roster through effective scouting, drafting, and strategic player acquisitions. Identify and develop players who fit the team's system and have the potential to make a significant impact.

Coaching Excellence: Hire experienced and innovative coaches who can develop players, create effective game plans, and make in-game adjustments. Strong coaching can bring out the best in players and maximize their potential.

Player Development: Implement a comprehensive player development program that focuses on improving skills, physical conditioning, and mental preparation. Develop a strong sense of teamwork, discipline, and work ethic within the team.

Emphasis on the Trenches: Build a dominant offensive and defensive line. Success in the trenches can set the tone for the entire team and create opportunities for the offense and defense to excel.

Consistency and Stability: Foster continuity by maintaining stability within the coaching staff, front office, and key positions on the roster. Continuity allows players to develop chemistry and familiarity with the system, leading to better performance on the field.

Strong Support Staff: Invest in a capable and efficient support staff, including strength and conditioning coaches, sports science experts, nutritionists, and sports psychologists. Providing players with the necessary resources and support can contribute to their overall success and well-being.

Adaptability and Innovation: Stay ahead of the game by embracing new strategies, technology, and analytics. Constantly evaluate and adapt the team's approach to stay competitive in a rapidly evolving NFL landscape.

Fan Engagement and Support: Foster a strong connection with the fan base, create a memorable game-day experience, and prioritize fan engagement. A passionate and supportive fan base can provide a boost to the team's morale and create a formidable home-field advantage.

Championship Mindset: Instill a championship mentality throughout the organization, setting high expectations and fostering a relentless pursuit of excellence. Maintain a winning culture that demands the best from every player and staff member.

Implementing these strategies requires a comprehensive and long-term approach. It takes time, patience, and a commitment to excellence to regain dominance like the teams of the 1970s.

The fact that Deion is on there and not Jason Witten is pathetic.
