Top Ten Best Dallas Cowboys Players

The Top Ten
1 Roger Staubach Roger Thomas Staubach, nicknamed Captain America and Captain Comeback, is a former American football quarterback in the National Football League.
2 Emmitt Smith Emmitt James Smith III is a former college and professional American football running back who became the National Football League's all-time leading rusher during his fifteen seasons in the league during the 1990s and 2000s.

Why is Emmitt the best Cowboy ever? Here's proof. Eleven times, he rushed for 1,000 yards or more in a season (all eleven consecutively), he was the 1993 NFL MVP, played in the Pro Bowl eight times, was a four-time NFL rushing yardage champion, and won three Super Bowl rings.

He's a member of the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor, the 1990 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, the Super Bowl XXVIII MVP, an NFL 1990s All-Team Member, an NFL 100th Anniversary All-Time Member, and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010. That's proof.

No tears here. He's the greatest wide receiver the Cowboys ever had.

4 Troy Aikman Troy Kenneth Aikman is a former American football quarterback who played for the Dallas Cowboys in the National Football League.

Troy Aikman is the best QB and my favorite Dallas Cowboy.

5 Larry Allen
6 Tony Dorsett

He was a first-round draft choice for the Cowboys in 1977, became the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, and played for the team until 1987. He played for Denver the following year before being forced to retire due to injuries. He is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame.

He had that explosiveness that you don't see as much anymore. Just watch his 99-yarder against Minnesota. He had exactly what a running back needed to succeed, which is why he is in the NFL Hall of Fame.

Tony is my dad's favorite Dallas Cowboy.

7 Deion Sanders Deion Luywnn Sanders, Sr. is a former American football and former American baseball player, who works as an analyst for CBS Sports and the NFL Network.

Deion Sanders is the fastest Cowboy of all time!

8 Bob Lilly

Nicknamed "Mr. Cowboy," Bob Lilly was a defensive tackle and photographer. After a college career at Texas Christian University (TCU), he played for the Dallas Cowboys from 1961 to 1974. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1980 and was an awesome defensive player.

I saw Bob physically pick up Fran Tarkenton, and instead of slamming him to the ground, he just held him until nervous refs whistled the play over. A gentle giant and a great athlete.

10 Tony Romo Antonio Ramiro Romo is an American football television analyst and former quarterback who played 14 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League.

11 Jason Witten Christopher Jason Witten (born May 6, 1982) is an American football tight end for the Las Vegas Raiders of the National Football League. He played 16 seasons for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of Tennessee, and was drafted by the... read more

I don't understand why he isn't considered one of the best tight ends of all time. He is on pace to smash every tight end record out there. He epitomizes everything a tight end should be.

12 Chuck Howley
13 Ed Too Tall Jones

Ed is very nice. I know someone who works at a hotel. One day, that person called me and told me that Ed Too Tall Jones was at the hotel. I went to meet him, and he seemed very nice. He said his family lived in Jackson, Tennessee. He gave me a picture of himself with his signature on it.

One day, he came back to the hotel and gave me an autographed Cowboys visor. When you think of the Dallas Cowboys, think of number seventy-two! Also, check out the top tens list for the top ten elements on the periodic table. I read it, and it was totally awesome!

14 Drew Pearson
15 Danny White

A blue-collar type who brought his lunch pail to work every day. I would hate to this day to have this guy mad at me. I saw him at a Steelers game last year and he still looked like he could play.

16 Daryl Johnston
17 Mel Renfro
18 Charles Haley

Charles Haley is the best linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys.

19 DeMarcus Ware
20 Jay Novacek

As a tight end, he was very important and often underrated during the Cowboys' amazing run of three world championships between 1992 and 1995. In two seasons, he caught 60 or more receptions, and in four seasons, he caught 50 or more. He had 600 or more receiving yards in four seasons and played in five straight Pro Bowls from 1991 to 1995.

In 1992, his best year, he caught 68 receptions for 630 yards and six touchdown passes. How 'Bout Them Cowboys.

He may be a rookie, but he has already gotten America's Team a playoff spot!

24 Sean Lee

One of the greatest at his position as linebacker when he stayed healthy.
