    Deion Sanders CB

    Sanders was another member of the Cowboys Super Bowl XXX winning team, and even recorded a 47-yard reception in this game. A ton could be said and written about Sanders' time with both the Cowboys and 49ers – where he won another Super Bowl – but simply put, it wouldn't be the “gold” team without Primetime!

    It is also interesting to note, finally, that with the exception of Charles Haley all of the players listed above appeared in RJ Ochoa's Countdown to Kickoff series – naming them as the best Dallas Cowboy in history at their respective .

    I'm stunned that Novacek was the tight end they picked. Delighted, of course, but stunned. They could've picked Shannon Sharpe, Mike Ditka, or Dave Casper, all of whom are in the NFL Hall of Fame. Very cool they went with Novacek!

    Blue Star

    #84 One of my favorite all-time Cowboys. Jay Novacek had a great skill set. That hurdle. Jay went out on top. I guess he should of got it over Mike..

    RJ Ochoa

    If you're looking at things specifically through the scope of the Super Bowl… Novacek makes a teeny bit of sense. Although Dave Casper is a very worthy nominee. There hasn't necessarily been a tight end to take over a Super Bowl. Maybe Olsen changes that on Sunday?
