Classic SI Photos of Roger Staubach

Arguably the greatest Dallas Cowboy of all time, Roger Staubach best embodies the Cowboys’ glory days, leading Dallas to four Super Bowls and two championships. His six Pro Bowls and Super Bowl VI MVP award led to his 1985 induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Known as "Roger The Dodger" for his scrambling abilities, "Captain America" as quarterback of America's Team, and also as "Captain Comeback" for his fourth quarter game-winning heroics, Staubach turned 75 years old on Feb. 5, 2017. Here are some classic SI photos through the years of the legendary quarterback.
