To be the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys is one of the greatest honors and achievements in all of professional sports.
The quarterback position of the Dallas Cowboys is a tradition-rich position that has Hall of Famers, Super Bowl champions, and players who have set team records for those of the future to chase after.
There have also been those who didn’t do much to be remembered in their time as the quarterback of the Cowboys, except for the fact they just weren’t very good when they made their start.
We all know the best of the best when speaking of the quarterbacks of the Cowboys in Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman, who have combined for five Super Bowl championships, and each has a spot in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
In all, there have been 39 players who have been the starting quarterback of “America’s Team,” starting with Eddie LeBaron in 1960 all the way to Kellen Moore, who made his first career start near the end of the 2015 season. Dak Prescott will become the 40th quarterback in the history of the franchise to make a start for the Cowboys when Week 1 arrives this Sunday.
Of those 39 players since that ’60 season, a majority of those seasons were led by Don Meredith, Craig Morton, Staubach, White, Aikman, and Romo. In fact, of those aforementioned quarterbacks, they have been a starter at some point in a season for 48 of the 56 seasons (1960-2015) the Cowboys have been in existence.
That span of time has seen great success and great failure, so without further ado, here are the Top 15 all-time starting quarterback rankings to play the position for the Cowboys.
