    Like with so many other notable games in Cowboys history, the catch, the fumble, the whatever. People tend to forget there was still time after these events. They were game changers, not game enders. There was still close to 5 minutes left after that Dez catch/non catch.

    I wonder if fans on a Dolphin message board argue over who's the best
    Dolphins QB of all time between Marino and Griese.

    People continuously forget how much time was left in that Green Bay game. 5 minutes is an eternity.

    This is the first time I've seen you so triggered that you drop your sad and pathetic gimmick.

    I’d swap White and Meredith, otherwise it’s a good ranking. Romo did absolutely nothing during his career with some talented teams around him....

    Romo 2014 was better than Dak is now. But Romo in his 4th season (2006) was not better than Dak in his 4th season (2019). I'm not sure that I would put Dak ahead of Romo right now. But he's certainly on a trajectory to be better than Romo. So far, Dak is being White also, but that is likely to change.

    Other than that, I definitely agree with the list, except that I would list Craig Morton as #4, ahead of Danny White. Morton was the starting QB for two SB losing teams. Meredith is definitely #3, behind only Staubach and Aikman. I think that Dak has the potential to become as good as Aikman if he can refine his mechanics to become a more consistent thrower, but I don't see him ever surpassing Staubach.

    My Current List:
    1. Staubach - 4 Superbowls
    2. Aikman - 3 Superbowls
    3. Meredith - very underappreciated by many Cowboys fans - 2 NFL Championship games
    4. Morton - forgotten by most Cowboys fans, but was the starting QB in two Superbowls 1970 season and 1977 season.
    5. Romo - most prolific passer in Cowboys history
    6. White - prolific passer, but Landry was always trying to find his replacement. The Alex Smith of the Landry years
    7. Prescott - Rising, and could soon pass White and Romo. If Dak wins a Superbowl this coming season, he will jump to #4.

    Trivia Questions:
    - How many 1st overall draft picks have played QB for the Cowboys?
    - Name the 1st round draft pick QB's who have been starters for the Dallas Cowboys.

    Whoa. Romo slander? Using Prescott?

    This should go over well.

    Indeed. Don't let the Romoholics push the false narrative that Romo never had talent around him. Complete malarkey from lifelong participation trophy getters that can't accept #9 for who he was.

    Sounds like a perfectly good description of Dak. Nice logic, troll.

    Off the top of my head,

    1. Troy Aikman, Vinny Testeverde, Bernie Kosar (supplemental draft) (only Aikman was drafted No. 1 overall by the Cowboys. The other two (Tampa Bay and Cleveland) came via free agency.)
    2. Aikman, Testeverde, Bernie Kosar, Craig Morton, Ryan Leaf

    I looked on Google after and saw I left some out. But I won't cheat. ;)

    Good trivia questions. Thanks. :)

    I would have put Romo at 5 over Dak knowing that Dak still has room to move up this list.
