We have gone through our lists of top 12 NFL bobbleheads by position, now we will begin to go through the top 10 by team. We will begin with America’s Team, the Dallas Cowboys. With a long and storied history that spans two separate cores of players who won multiple Super Bowls, there are many players that could be on this list. If you have any comments or somebody you think deserved to be on the list please leave those in the comment section at the bottom!

Emmitt Smith – Running Back 1990-2004
Any list of Dallas Cowboys has to start with Emmitt Smith. The NFL’s all-time leading rusher was an integral part of the Cowboys team that won 3 of 4 Super Bowl’s in the early ’90s. In fact, he won the rushing title in each of those 3 years, and to that point that had never been done. Always humble, Emmitt Smith is one of the greatest football players to ever play the game.
Roger Staubach – Quarterback 1969- 1979
Roger Staubach was the leader of the Dallas Cowboys team that went to 5 Super Bowls in the ’70s, winning 2 of them. After winning the Super Bowl MVP after the ’71 season, Staubach joined a very small list of players to win both the Super Bowl MVP and the Heisman in college. And all of this was after serving 4 years in the United States Navy and a tour in Vietnam!
Michael Irvin – Wide Receiver 1988 – 1999
Irvin was part of the “triplets” that along with Emmitt Smith and Troy Aikman led a dominate Cowboys team to 3 out of 4 Super Bowls in the early ’90s. A physical receiver on the outside, Irvin caught anything that was thrown his way, it was tough to focus strictly on stopping Smith with Irvin on the field as well.
Jason Witten – Tight End 2003-2017, 2019
When the only person you are trailing in receiving yards and catches by a tight end is Tony Gonzalez, you are in pretty good company. In his initial run with the Cowboys from 2003 to 2017, Witten only missed one game, his rookie season, after breaking his jaw! After taking a year off to join the Monday Night Football crew, Witten came back in 2019, and although he didn’t have the burst he had when he was younger, he was still able to make big play after big play when he was needed. The epitome of a team player, Jason Witten will be in the hall of fame 5 years after he decides to finally leave the game.
Troy Aikman – Quarterback 1989 – 2000
Obviously have to put the last member of the triplets on here. Starting with the Cowboys when they were 1-15, to winning the first of three Super Bowls 3 years later, Troy Aikman was one of the most accurate passers in the NFL, winning the Super Bowl MVP in 1992 while throwing for 273 yards and 4 touchdowns on 22-30 passing.
Daryl Johnston – Fullback 1989-1999
Often overlooked with the amount of talent on that loaded Cowboys team of the early ’90s, Daryl Johnston was key to helping Emmitt Smith get many of those yards while catching the occasional pass out of the backfield from Troy Aikman. That team would not have been as good without Johnston on the field.
Tony Romo – Quarterback 2003 – 2016
Tony Romo does not have the postseason success of the other quarterbacks on this list, but he had his share of success on the football field. He is the Cowboys all-time leader in passing touchdowns and passing yards among other records, and his 97.1 rating ranks him at number 4 of quarterbacks that have never made the Super Bowl.
Tom Landry – Coach 1960 – 1988
Any list about the Dallas Cowboys has to include their first coach, Tom Landy. During his 29 years as head coach, the Cowboys became “America’s Team”, and had a record 20 consecutive years with a winning record. In addition, in a 13 year period from 1970 – 1982, the Cowboys played in 10 NFC championship games, going to 5 Super Bowls and winning 2 of them.
Ezekiel Elliot – Running Back 2016 – present
Still early in his career, “Zeke” Elliot is proving he is one of the best in the game. The leading rusher in 2 of his first 3 years, the Cowboys are definitely a better team when he gets rolling.
Dak Prescott – Quarterback 2016 – present
The latest quarterback to lead the Cowboys, Dak Prescott has a bright future. With just under 5,000 passing yards in 2019, he is starting to grow into the franchise quarterback for America’s Team.
There are many more that should be on the list, but there are not many bobbleheads from players from the Doomsday Defense of the ’70s. Which players would you like to see on this list? Let me know in the comments! Have a great day!
