Former Cowboys quarterback and Monday Night Football commentator Don Meredith died on Sunday night at 72.
Meredith was the starting quarterback on the Cowboys teams that made the NFL Championship Game (what would amount to the Conference Championship today) in 1966 and 1967. He made three Pro Bowls before retiring at 31 and serving as a member of the initial MNF crew with Howard Cosell and Keith Jackson.
