Why do TV networks always want to hire Dallas Cowboy QBs as analysts?

Fox's #1 team has Aikman. CBS's #1 team has Romo. ABC had Meredith on MNF for years and they're about to offer Romo some pretty stupid money. I'm pretty sure I heard NBC was going to replace Collinsworth with Quincy Carter (which would actually be an improvement). 


The CW is deciding between Gary Hogeboom and Steve Pelluer. 

Update 2:

@anon- Staubach has a net worth of $600m. There isn't a network that could pay him enough to do it.

    Because the Cowboys were so good for so long

    They tend to have name recognition like Bradshaw and other ex players that get network jobs.

    John Madden was the number 1 announcer for decades. NBC does not have any Cowpie quarterback in its number 1 announcing team. Roger Staubach is the best quarterback in Dallas history but he is not an announcer.
