Was Lee Roy Toughest Ever?
Roger Staubach, Heisman Trophy winner, College and Pro Football Hall of Fame member on former Dallas Cowboy teammate and Alabama legend, Lee Roy Jordan – "Lee Roy Jordan was absolutely the best. He was about 215 pounds when he played at his maximum weight - pound for pound the toughest guy I think that's ever played in the NFL. He was the leader of our team. I joined the team as an old rookie coming out of the Navy. There was (Bob) Lilly, (Mel) Renfro and Lee Roy who were fighting to get that first Super Bowl so I had the chance to quarterback that first win against Miami. Lee Roy was the leader of our defense. He and Coach Landry I think were the two most excited people about winning that Super Bowl. He's still a great friend and I see him all the time. He's one tough son of a gun. Lee Roy loved Coach Bryant."
Roger Staubach – commenting on Kenny Stabler, one of three quarterbacks (Terry Bradshaw and Roger Staubach) voted by the NFL football writers to the 1970's All-Decade team who has not been inducted to the Professional Football Hall of Fame. "I think if you look at the quality of his play, he is a Hall of Famer. I feel Kenny is definitely a Hall of Famer."
Roger Staubach advising first year starting quarterbacks – "I think mentally to make sure you work real hard to get a confidence level. I think the most important thing for a quarterback is confidence. You've got to have the ability but you also have to have the confidence to go with it. So I think you've got to really believe in yourself."
