Can you tell the difference between 1960s NFL quarterbacks and TV cowboys?

Was he on TV or a QB?

In the 1960s, millions of American boys dreamed of becoming either a quarterback or a cowboy. Is it any wonder that the Cowboys became "America's team?" 

TV cowboys and NFL QBs had a lot in common. At least, their names sounded similar. 

See if you can spot the difference between a character in a cowboy hat and a professional athlete wearing a helmet.

Try to score in the double digits!

With trivia skills like that, you're ready for the Pro Bowl. Of TV Trivia. If that was a thing.

Got 11/15. Any name I didn't recognize, I chose quarterback. Unfortunately, I don't care for Westerns any more than I care for football.

True fans are still watching. This is not the place for political shots.

Respectfully disagree gatorgirl. It's my opinion that it is the ultimate respect to embrace our freedom of expression to challenge our country to truly be one nation "with liberty and justice for ALL." Anyway, for those who are offended (or who disagree, which of course is your/their right) - just tune in a few minutes late and move on.

Missed #7. Down here in Sofl, Earl Morrall was a legend. You neglected to say he also played for the Miami Dolphins. In 1972 (The Perfect season) when Bob Griese went down with an injury, Morrall stepped in and won a lot of games. Griese came back in time for the playoffs. Met Morrall several times, nice guy. he was also well-known (down here at least) for having a house that looked like a flying saucer.
