You can’t argue with a .750 regular season winning percentage. Or two Super Bowl victories.

Roger Staubach is, and will always be, a winner. As a quarterback on the field, and as a business person who successfully started his own commercial real estate company, The Staubach Company.

It sold for $613 million in 2008.

So it’s no wonder when the former NFL and Super Bowl MVP speaks, America listens. The six-time Pro Bowl and former Heisman Trophy winner recently advocated that Troy Aikman should serve the Cowboys in a similar role that John Elway holds with the Denver Broncos.

Like Staubach, it’s hard to argue with Elway’s success on and off the field. The popular executive won two Super Bowls late in his career, but these days he is known for helping the Broncos to consecutive playoff appearances, a Super Bowl birth, and perhaps most of all, Elway was able to lure in arguably the greatest quarterback to ever touch the turf.

Though Troy Aikman has considered serving the Cowboys in some capacity, he has stated it would depend on Jerry Jones and his son, Stephen Jones.

Troy Aikman now works for Fox as an NFL commentator along with Joe Buck. The start of the 2014 NFL season will mark Aikman’s 13th year with Fox.

With Aikman locked up, the former three-time Super Bowl champion should ask his joint partner, former Navy Officer, and co-owner of Hall of Fame Racing (a NASCAR Nextel Cup Team), Mr. Roger Staubach, to step in.

    Oh, dear lord! Please, Roger, stay the hell out of getting involved in any way with the operation of this team. You’re too great a former player and too good a businessman to get the stink of this bunch all over you, particularly knowing full well nothing is going to change.

    All of this is on Jerry. He wants the credit for making this team what it is. And he should accept the responsibility for what this team is, as well!!!!!

      Spot on Smart! I would love to have Roger involved with this organization at the top, but it probably would be a very frustrating experience for him and not worth damaging his legacy. JJ and his mega ego want all the credit and none of the blame. Like in the mirror JJ, you have ruined this once great franchise. It’s not about the team’s market value. It’s about the team’s on field success.

    Right on with Roger the dodger!

  • Scott.

    No way Roger the dodger is far too intelligent to get involved in the foolishness that’s called the front office of the once proud Americas team.
