Danny get's The Landry Legends Award

ARLINGTON - Will Danny White be disappointed if his Cowboys are again a .500 team? Quite the contrary. 'I think we'll take 8-8 and be happy to have it,' the former quarterback/punter said - an understated remark that fit in well with Wednesday's Kickoff Luncheon.

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Danny White answered a reporter's question Wednesday about the Cowboys' past three consecutive 8-8 seasons and what to expect for 2014.

"I think we'll take 8-8 and be happy to have it," the former quarterback/punter said.

White, who was in town at the club's annual Kickoff Luncheon benefiting Happy Hill Farm to accept the 2013 Tom Landry Legends Award, gave his thoughts on the 55th season of Cowboys football.

"This is such a mystery year," White remarked.

The former 1974 third-round Cowboys draft pick isn't just an alumnus of America's Team enjoying retirement. White works as a radio analyst for Compass Media Network's season-long coverage of Cowboys football. He follows the team as close as any other commentator.

Said White: "A lot of ifs this year. You look at their roster at the beginning of the year in the past, and they were as good as anybody on paper. But then the injuries kicked in, and it was one position. It was the defensive line or the linebackers or the defensive backs. And it was just unbelievable. I've never seen anyone with the bad luck with injuries as the Cowboys have had."

According to Pro Football Outsiders, Dallas lost 67.9 games out their players due to injuries, ranking 17th in their Adjusted Games Lost metric. Using the same stats, the Cowboys lost 26 games along the defensive line, finishing only ahead of Chicago at the bottom of Pro Football Outsiders' list.

Still, Arizona State's pride and joy passer sees bright spots with the current Cowboys.

"They have some young defensive players," White said. "It's kind of a reclamation project with Henry Melton, Bruce Carter -- these guys come to play."

Carter flashed signs of talent last Saturday in Miami. Observers will have to wait for tonight's preseason finale against Denver in AT&T Stadium to get a glimpse at Henry Melton, a free agent acquisition from the Bears.

"They've got to get guys healthy. That's the biggest thing."

The 1982 Pro Bowler joins teammates Drew Pearson and Roger Staubach, along with a slew of other fan-favorite Cowboys greats, to accept the Tom Landry Legends Award. White, who played his entire 13-year career for Landry, gave the credit to the Cowboys coaching legend, his teammates, and also Frank Kush, his old college coach at Arizona State.

Glad to see Danny get some acknowledgement from the team

Might be the only good news from Dallas this season.

yeah..but the LAST thing this teams needs is another 8-8 season. It would be FAR better to go 3-13 and force the thick headed Jones to finally realize he needs to start all over. 8-8 is just going to give us another half *** draft pick. Like the 1989 season when the team went 1-15 and then proceeded on the greatness. this team needs to totally bottom out...Band aid patches are not what this team needs at all right now. But the sad thing is Jones gives the 34 year old Romo a fat contract. By the time this team is competitive again, he'll be ready to retire. What a friggin mess of mismanagement! spriderman
