I honestly believe there are two things that could have dramatically altered those horrible 5-11 seasons.
One was if Irvin hadn't gone down that year, with him and Rocket, the Cowboys could have kicked *** in what had become a watered down league of parity. We probably would have seen an offense that for the first time focused more on passing with Aikman to Rocket/Irvin since Emmitt was starting to wear down.
The other thing was if we would have drafted Randy Moss. Same effect but a lot earlier in their careers.
