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.
