As many of you already know DC.com is posting the 50 greatest players in franchise history and a few weeks ago BTB regular TCBinNYC posted a fanpost in which he attempted to generate interest in having the BTB community give their input where anyone interested could send TCBinNYC a list of their 50 greatest Cowboys and he would input those into a spreadsheet and tabulate the results. TBCinNYC's e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org so feel free to pick your top 50 and send it to him.
To generate interest and maybe some debate below is my top 50 Cowboys of all time. I personally based my selections on the players career and impact on the franchise. not necessarily who I thought was more talented, but of course anyone is free to base their top 50 on any type of criteria they want. So here is my list.
