Watching the Rose Bowl in 1989, I called my dad and told him he need to watch also. Not being a big college guy he asked why. I told him the QB for UCLA was going to be the starting QB for the Cowboys for years to come and would lead us back to the super bowl. I will never forget that conversation and how history played out after that.
This is a team who is battling several major injuries to
key players including Pro Bowl talents like Lee, Austin, Jenkins, Murray,
Carter and Ratliff. Other key starters missing include Costa, Smith, Church and
Coleman. That is 11 key players - that's half the starting lineup. Yet we still went 8-8.
