ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Exactly 100 days before the Super Bowl, Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman are already giving up hope of their old team being there. They can hardly believe it, either.
Both were expecting big things from the Cowboys this season. The Hall of Fame quarterbacks had more than the usual reasons to root for their old club, too - Staubach is the chairman of the host committee and Aikman the vice-chair.
Both spoke at a luncheon at Cowboys Stadium celebrating the countdown to kickoff. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones took part, too, and said he's not giving up hope, even though his team is 1-5 and just lost quarterback Tony Romo to a broken collarbone.
Staubach joked he's available to play if things don't work out with new starter Jon Kitna.
