Committee Chairman: Love him or hate him, there is only one Jerry Jones. Featured prominently on Awfulplasticsurgery.com, Jones is an owner I really like, mainly because I only want two things from an owner:
Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. We have a new one to unveil today, that of the Dallas Cowboys.
Known to many as America’s Team, the Cowboys are one of the most recognized professional sports programs on the globe. Formed in 1960, the Cowboys have won five Super Bowls (VI, XII, XXVII, XXVIII & XXX), and when they play, regardless of their record, NFL fans pay attention.
As for all of our top 50 players in football we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NFL.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories.
This list is updated up until the end of the 2019 Season.
The complete list can be found here, but as always we announce our top five in this article. They are:
1. Emmitt Smith
2. Bob Lilly
4. Randy White
5. Mel Renfro
We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists. Up next, will be the Seattle Seahawks.
Look for our more material coming soon!
As always we thank you for your support.
We have another major retirement in the National Football League as Jason Witten has called it a career.
Drafted in the 3rd Round out of Tennessee in 2003, Witten would see significant playing time in his rookie year but in 2004 he would rise to Pro Bowl status with a 980 Yard season. This would be the first of many seasons where the Dallas Cowboy would be considered an elite Tight End.
From 2005 to 2010 he would be named to six more Pro Bowls, which would also include two First Team All Pro Selections. Four more Pro Bowls would follow (2012-14 & 2017). Four of his seasons would see Witten exceed over 90 Receptions and 1,000 Yards, incredible numbers for a Tight End.
Witten first retired after the 2017 season, and went into the broadcast booth for ESPN for their Monday Night Football package. He unretired, coming back in 2019, and joined the Las Vegas Raiders last year.
Witten retires as the all-time Cowboys leader in Receptions (1,215) and Receiving Yards (12,977). and he retires with 13,046 Yards and 74 Touchdowns in total.
With his 11 Pro Bowls and statistical accumulation he has an excellent shot at entering the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2026. He will certainly have a prime position on our Notinhalloffame.com Football list. In our 2020 pre-season rank of active players and their Hall of Fame credentials, Witten was placed #9 overall and #2 in Tight Ends behind Rob Gronkowski.
We will be creating his Notinhalloffame.com profile shortly in the 2026 section.
We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to thank Jason Witten for all of the memories on the field and we wish him the best in his post-playing career.
