    Danny White was our great quarterback at ASU in 1972 and 1973. He lead us to 2 bowl victories vs Missouri in 1972 and Pittsburgh and Tony Dorsett in 1973. He was a great one for sure!!

    I remember Danny White. I forgot Steve Pelluer.

    Danny White was never appreciated coming out of the shadow of Roger Staurback. That's the reason. The expectations were too high! He reminds me alot of Tony Romo

    Have met Danny and he seems to be a really good person. I spoke with him about the Historical “The Catch” game against Joe Montana where Danny hit Drew Pearson for what would have been the winn night catch only to have Pearson tackled by a finger of the San Francisco defender with what is now an illegal horse-collar tackle. I told him it would have changed the whole prospective of Whites career, but White said no, it would have put Drew Pearson in the Hall Of Fame (Which he was not at the time). Imagine a really good quarterback who also punts the ball (running it at times) in today’s game like Danny White was.

    Jeff Pearlman mentioned Steve Pelluer in his Cowboys book, "Boys Will be Boys", stating that Pelluer could run a little, throw a little, and do just enough to get beat (the same label was applied to Steve DeBerg, who interestingly enough was a QB who later won starting QB for the Chiefs over Pelluer; I feel that DeBerg surpassed that branding when complemented with a better team). I think Pelluer had NFL-level talent, but couldn't really put it all together; he just wasn't it (The 1988 Cowboys were decaying, but I think a better QB could've led the team to at least 6 wins).

    As a lifelong Cowboys fan (since 1974), I remember all this like it was yesterday!
    I remember around this time and before Jerry Jones and Jimmy Johnson came to town, and how much of a fan of Tom Landry's (R.I.P.) I was, but it was time to move on from Landry.
    And decisions like the Steve Pelleur "MOVE" was one of them!
    Danny White had the "MISFORTUNE" of replacing Roger Staubach – and being the "RECIPIENT" of an aging team with coaches the game had past by and a bunch of bad draft picks, but nobody talks about that – except it seems is me and two of my brothers who also grew up being Cowboys fans. I'm not saying White didn't have his faults – he did – but he was never as bad as people made him out to be.
    Just look at the ALL STAR QB lineup "AFTER" Troy Aikman and "BEFORE" Tony Romo to get a real good look at some bad QB play!
    TO PUT DANNY WHITE IN PERSPECTIVE:
    After Jimmy Johnson left, "REAL COWBOYS FANS" would kill to be able to lose 3 straight NFC CHAMPIONSHIPS – AGAIN!

    Danny White is the 2nd best QB in Cowboys history.

    Back when the Cowboys were a great team. When their coach told them "If you make a touchdown, act like you've been there before!!!"

    Despite not winning the SB as the STARTING QB, D.W. DOES HAVE A SB RING (SB XII vs. The Denver Broncos; a.k.a.: THE BEST SB EVER!!!!!). So let's not kid ourselves by saying that D.W. NVR WON THE SB @ ALL. It's only as the STARTING QB that he didn't win the SB.

    Danny White's biggest issue was consistency. When he was on, he was as good as anybody. When he was off, he was as bad as anybody. As a lifelong Cowboys fan (up until the last couple of seasons when SJW crap took over) I always knew Danny White had an equal chance of throwing 3 touchdown passes as he had of throwing 3 interceptions.

    As much as I dislike the Cowboys. Danny White was an extremely good QB. However when it comes to QB's getting sacked. It is not the fault of the QB for getting sacked. That is solely on backs of the offensive line. If the QB is being sacked. Then the offensive line is not protecting their leader. The QB stats should not show how many times the QB has been sacked. Since it is not his fault. Everytime I watch football. When a QB is sacked. Announcers hardly ever say the offensive line is not giving the QB protestion. Instead they talk about the QB getting sacked and that he should have done something to keep from being sacked.

    As a kid, Staubach was my hero. But I always admired Danny White, for stepping in after a legend and doing a very good job. I always loved his days as a punter, and all his fake punts and first-down runs/passes. I always give White his due. After all, how many players are able to perform at a pro-bowl caliber level at 2 positions. Danny White: class act!

    Danny White is the epitome of one of those great players you just never hear about anymore. If he got the Cowboys over the hump just once into a Super Bowl, he'd be a HOFer.

    White was a good quarterback but that game erodes your body and athleticism over time. That's what was happening to the Cowboys by the mid 1980s. Many of those players on the team at that time had been around since the 70s and their skills had greatly diminished. They were a tired, worn out team, and many of the other teams had adopted Landry's strategies and improved upon them.
