There's no position in any of the major sports that comes with a larger spotlight than playing quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.

Made famous by the superstars of the 1970s, the signal-caller in Big D is supposed to be a team leader and someone fans can look up to. Unfortunately, they haven't found one to bring them postseason success since Troy Aikman but there are still plenty of talented quarterbacks to have represented the franchise.

Here, we look at the 10 best to ever wear the star on their helmet.

10. Jason Garrett (1993-1999)

Regular season record: 6-3

No. 16 All-Time Cowboys Passing Yardage: 2,042

When a team has found as many franchise quarterbacks as the Cowboys have, it's hard to find 10 guys who were long-time starters. That's why a few reserves found their way into the conversation and while Cooper Rush could wind up overtaking this spot with another run, Jason Garrett comes in as No. 10.

Garrett spent seven seasons in Dallas and was typically the No. 3 quarterback. But he proved he could hold the fort down in 1994 when he was pressed into action following injuries to both Troy Aikman and Rodney Peete on Thanksgiving Day.

Against the Green Bay Packers, Garrett threw for 311 yards with two touchdowns as Dallas shocked the Green Bay Packers in a 42-31 victory. While Garrett never again put up video game numbers, he did get nine starts and led the Cowboys to wins in six of those.

His stats might not jump off the page but when Garrett would step into the game, the coaching staff knew they could trust him and the fans knew he would give them a chance.
