With an impressive eight Super Bowls in franchise history the Dallas Cowboys have featured some of the most illustrious quarterbacks the NFL has ever seen.  From Gary Hogeboom to Troy Aikman, where does Tony Romo fit in amongst the top 10 signal callers in the history of the Dallas Cowboys?

10. Gary Hogeboom:  Hogeboom is on this list for one reason and one reason only.  With a name like Hogeboom, you have to make this list.  Drafted by the Cowboys in the 5th round of the 1980 draft, Hogeboom spent six years with the Cowboys mostly backing up Danny White.  In 12 starts he led the team to 6-6 while throwing for 3,550 yards and 13 touchdowns.

9.  Vinny Testaverde:  A lot of people outside of Dallas have forgotten that Testaverde was once a Cowboy.  He was brought to the team by his former New York Jets head coach, Bill Parcells, in 2004.  Testaverde only played one season with the Cowboys and in 15 starts he led them to a 5-10 record.

8.  Quincy Carter:  Carter was drafted by the Cowboys in the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft.  After splitting time as the starter in 2001 and 2002, Carter led the Cowboys to a 10-6 record and a playoff berth in 2003 before he was surprisingly released during the offseason due to a failed drug test and questionable leadership.  His overall record as a Cowboy QB was 18-16.
