Top 15 Dallas Cowboys of All Time

This list is about “America's Team.” No, not the Denver Broncos, we are talking about the “America's real Team,” the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys have a rich history in the National Football League, with the franchise winning five Super Bowls and reaching the big game eight times, a record they share only with the Pittsburgh Steelers. One can argue the Dallas Cowboys are the greatest franchise in the history of professional football. You don’t get the title of “America's Team” if you're not. However, a franchise is only as good as the players that play for it and to succeed as much as the Cowboys have it takes great players, not just good players.

This list looks at the top 15 Cowboys of all time. The list consists of long tenured Cowboys, with players having to have played five or more seasons with the organization. Some of these players may not be anywhere near the top 15 in league history, but these players contributed a great amount to the Cowboys and helped them win numerous championships and games. However, most on the list are Super Bowl champions and tht does play a factor on how high they're ranked. That doesn’t mean players without a ring didn’t make the cut, as career stats are also a big factor in there rank. Before we start, we'd like to apologize to Tony Romo, as Jason Witten isn’t the greatest Cowboy of all time, although he made the list and that should bring a smile to his face and maybe some Cowboys tickets my way… I guess that's wishful thinking.

Emmitt Smith isn’t just the NFL’s all time career rushing leader, he is also the greatest Cowboy of all time. Smith is a three-time Super Bowl champion, Super Bowl MVP (XXVIII), NFL MVP, and a part of the NFL 1990s All Decade Team. Furthermore, he has three NFL rushing records; career rushing yards (18,355), career rushing touchdowns (164) and career 100 yard games (78). He is also the Cowboys all-time leading rusher with 17,162 yards, a mark that may never be broken.
