Editor’s note: As part of NFL’s Greatest Quarterback, fans will decide the best QB in each team’s history. Roger Staubach: Staubach was a 10th-round pick in 1964, but he didn’t start his NFL career until 1969 when he was 27 years old. Staubach served in the Navy for five years. Staubach became a full-time starter in 1971 and led the Cowboys to a Super Bowl victory. He won the MVP in that game after throwing for 119 yards and two touchdowns. Staubach led the Cowboys to two Super Bowl victories and five NFC championships. He was a six-time Pro Bowler and five-time All-Pro during his 11-year career. Staubach was named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985. Don Meredith: Meredith was a three-time Pro Bowler during his nine-year career and accumulated a 48-33 record. He unexpectedly retired at the top of his game after the 1968 season. That year, Meredith led the Cowboys to a 11-2 record and had his best season statistically, as well. Meredith led the Cowboys to the playoffs from 1966 to 1968. The Cowboys never made the Super Bowl with “Dandy Don” at the helm. “Dandy Don” became a color commentator for Monday Night Football after his retirement in 1970 and stayed on until 1984. Danny White: White was drafted by the Cowboys in the third-round of the 1974 draft, but chose to play in the World Football League with the Memphis Southmen instead. White signed with Dallas after the WFL folded in 1976. White took over as the Cowboys’ starter in 1980 after Roger Staubach retired. He led Dallas to the playoffs five times during his NFL career and accumulated a 62-30 record in the regular season. White was also the Cowboys’ punter from 1976 to 1984. Troy Aikman: Aikman was the No. 1 overall pick in the 1989 NFL draft and started out of the gate for the Cowboys. In his 12-year career in Dallas, the Cowboys made the postseason seven times. Dallas won the Super Bowl in 1992, 1993 and 1995. The UCLA product was the Super Bowl XXVII MVP. Aikman was a six-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro. His best season came in 1993 when he started 14 games, threw for 3,100 yards and 15 touchdowns with just six interceptions. He had a 69.1-percent completion percentage. Aikman’s career was derailed by concussions, and he retired in 2000 at just 34 years old. Aikman was named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006. Take Our Poll
