You would be hard-pressed to find someone in the history of the world that knows more about football, and specifically the Dallas Cowboys, than Pro Football hall of Famer Gil Brandt. When Mr. Brandt speaks, people listen. He remains one of the most influential voices in the NFL community and has one of the greatest scouting eyes that the game has ever seen.

Mr. Brandt took to the streets of Twitter on Wednesday and launched a nuclear level tweet. There are things that many people have debated in the long history of the Cowboys, but in recent memory nothing really comes close to the days of Tony Romo and Dak Prescott.

If you were wondering how Mr. Brandt ranks his top five Dallas Cowboys quarterbacks in general, then he has the answer for you.

  1. Roger Staubach
  2. Troy Aikman
  3. Dak Prescott
  4. Danny White
  5. Tony Romo

Mr. Brandt has both Prescott and Romo in his top five, but the former at third and the latter at fifth.

Spots one and two are taken by Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman, respectively, and Danny White even makes an appearance at number four. It truly is fascinating that Prescott would not only outrank Romo just four seasons in, but Danny White, too. It says a lot about how impressive Dak Prescott’s career has been to this point in time.
