I love trivia. And yet, the word "trivia" suggests that what is being talked about is fairly meaningless. In today's Star-Telegram is an article in which readers were asked to choose the top 5 Cowboys of all time -- the "Fave Five." Here they are, in order:
1. Roger Staubach (1969-79), who narrowly beat out #2.
2. Bob Lilly (1961-74) What a dominating tackle!
3. Emmitt Smith (1990-2002)
4. Troy Aikman (1989-2000)
5. Randy White (1975-88) The Manster!
As I looked over the list, I think the readers did a pretty good job. Yes, there are so many great players you could name: Michael Irvin, Tony Dorsett, Mel Renfro, Don Meredith, LeeRoy Jordan, Chuck Howley. But who would you take off the list to add one of them?
The only thing bothering me is that Quincy Carter and Chad Henderson got left off.
What do you think? Would you change the list? And please -- no Romo yet. Let him get a full year under his belt before you go rah-rahing for him.
