FILE - In this Oct. 21, 1979, file photo, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach (12) gets good pass protection during a football game against St. Louis Cardinals, in Dallas. All these years later, Staubach remembers quite clearly what his initial reaction was when Dallas Cowboys coach Tom Landry approached him about making the shotgun formation a recurring feature of their offense.

FILE - In this undated file photo, Dallas Cowboys quarterback takes the snap from a shotgun formation against the Atlanta Falcons during an NFL game. The Pro Football Hall of Fame _ which counts both Staubach and Cowboys coach Tom Landry among its members _ says San Francisco 49ers coach Red Hickey introduced a form of the shotgun offense to the sport in 1960, before abandoning it during the following season. But Landry's Cowboys get credit for bringing it back and popularizing it by positioning Staubach 5 yards behind the center. (AP Photo/File)
