1990 for Jimmy Johnson.
Translation, when you are expected to win because you are good, you won't win this award. Some could argue that Bill Parcells deserved to win in 2003 and I would be among them, but the fact remains that only twice in our History has our Head Coach been the Coach of the Year.
Wouldn't that be 3 times then? Landry in 1966 & 75, and Johnson in 1990. Or is it only once since you said that from 70-96 it was split between AFC & NFC?
You've got me all confused now.
In the 1990 Draft as it got closer to us and Emmitt Smith was still there I started getting excited. He was considered too small by some, but you cannot measure heart.
I didn't see Emmitt play in college so I wasn't sure what to expect from him but once I saw him play in the NFL I knew he would be good, I just had no idea HOW great he would be.

"Jerry Jones is a billionaire fan who bought his own team for the express purpose of buying his way into the game. He wants to hang out with the players, stand in front of the cameras, be the face of the team (yech), make personnel moves as if this were a video game, and more than anything else, be seen as the guy who made it all happen."
