Anywhere on the line.
1. Roger- Imagine Staubach running an RPO on your ass every so often.
2. Troy- Probably the best pure passer I've ever seen.
3.Dandy Don- Hard as nails as well as a great QB
4 Danny White- Nice work when he had to sub for Roger, kept Dallas's punting job for many years , then stepped in when Roger left and did well, mostly. Also, in punt formation, had the green light if he thought a fake was good idea, Landry trusted him that much.
5. Romo-Truly gifted QB who gave me the urge to throw him into oncoming traffic too many times.

Honorable Mention- Charlie Waters.

Forgot about him (and his fumbles). I'd have him replace Walker on that list.
Murray's reputation as a fumbler comes from that crucial fumble in the playoffs against the Packers. I guess it's not how often you fumble, but when, that sticks in the mind. Murray actually had a career record of a fumble every 97.5 touches, which is very good. Compare that to Emmitt's record of a fumble every 81.8 touches (still very good). Dorsett had a fumble every 36.1 touches (surprised me how bad that is). Of course I'd still take Emmitt or Dorsett over Murray any day.

But when he fumbled, we almost always lost the fumble to the other team. I don't think Emmitt was that snakebit.

Well, I've been lurking, if not logging in much. I find the offseason to be bit of a drag at the best of times but even more so this time given what's going on the world at the moment. Think I've just about exhausted every old Cowboys game on YouTube now. I even watched the scab game from '87 against the Jets. Made me wonder why Kevin Sweeney didn't make anyone's top 5 Cowboys QBs. He was torching those scab Jets DBs!

Emmitt had 15 fumbles his first two yrs (not all lost) but got better afterward. He fumbled a total of 9 times the next 3 seasons combined.The worst fumble I remember off the top of my head was the Houston game in 1991, we had the game essentially won as we were deep in Houston territory, but he fumbled giving the ball back to them and they won in OT. I cant remember if the fumble came at the end of regulation or in OT but it did cost us the game.

^ Zeke rarely got that kind of space to run through, especially last couple seasons.

I'm excited to see what the subtle changes in the blocking scheme might do for him, along with being far less predictable than Red Goober's offense.

That's also because opposing teams decided to corral Zeke and made the decision to make Dak beat them. Playoff teams made the right call when they did this. Dak was I believe 1 and 6 with 8 tds and 8 picks vs playoff teams in 2019.

It should maybe be noted that Preston Pearson was actually the leading receiver 1977-78, although a RB while we had both Hill and Drew as well. Honorable mention for this versatile performer.
