I wanted to vote for #26, but since he wasnt on the poll I went with Dodger. One of the greatest of all time.

I'm sure Troy Aikman will get several votes because he won the most Super Bowls, but my vote went to Roger Staubach. He is the QB that put Dallas on the map as America's Team.

i did vote other because of #26, but my phone kept freezing up every time and it didn't go through!

Oh well, so my second choice was Rodger and it went through just fine. Curious as to why Question

Honestly, the lack of voting for Aikman is stunning. There IS an argument to be made on his behalf. While I voted for Captain America, I do think this landslide is a bit much.

I grew up idolizing Aikman. He was what I pictured as the definition of a QB (and still do). Cool, calm and collected under pressure and able to put the team on his back when it needed him the most.

That said, I voted for Staubach.

why? 100% of people would take Rice over Irvin. That doesn't mean they aren't both great. It just means one is better.


troy and RS are both HOF QBs... But RS is better.

While I think Rice had a better career, there were seasons I saw that Irvin was a better player. So there were moments that it's debatable.

And again, I voted for the Captain, but just damn. This is unexpected. Laughing

Can somebody explain to me why #17 isn't on the list???

J/K

I went with Rodger. He could do everything Aikman could, but Rodger added more escapability and play making ability.

What are the odds that Dirk is the dude that voted for Romo? Since MH went into retirement... I kinda doubt it was him.

I think it's safe to say that if Pat McQuistan is not on the list of OTs, then it's not only a skewed list, but not worthy of voting on.

Put Rice against Bobby Hayes.....forget Irvin....Geriatic has spoken lol I'm also very surprized Craig Morton wasn't on your list, after all he started a SB for us and for Denver.

You guys have been blessed with above average QB play for a long time.

I've been lucky enough to see all the poll options play and while Don Merideth was by far my favorite Cowboy I had to vote for Roger Staubach. He was an electrifying player and a fine man.
