That had to be one of the worst drafts ever. The only guy who started than a couple games was Eric Bjornson and he was far from being a true starting caliber player. Sherman Williams played in several games but was strictly a backup player.
Great team that year but it was the last one for us... until now.
Emmitt was amazing that season and the pickup of Center Ray Donaldson was key to his success as was the emergence of Larry Allen. That O-Line was probably the best we ever had and one of the best in NFL history IMO.
Getting swept by the stinking Redskins sucked but beating the Stealers in the SB was so sweet!
I hate that so many people credit the addition of Deion Sanders for winning the SB that year as it was our offense that was the strength of the team. Deion actually didn't do that much that season and really wasn't an upgrade over Kevin Smith (when healthy). He was an outstanding cover guy and had amazing closing speed which he used to bait QBs into throwing his way when it looked like the WR was open. But he was never as good as the media made him out to be.
The O-Line, Emmitt, Aikman, Irvin, Novacek, & Moose were why we won in 1995. Our defense was the weak link and lost a number of games that we should have won because we had trouble stopping them late in games. This was Dave Campo's first season as DC and it would be a problem throughout his tenure as well as his understudy, Mike Zimmer.
If not for Larry Brown's timely interceptions in the SB the Stealers might have won that game as they were moving at will against our defense.
Captain Nathan Brittles: "Only the man who commands can be blamed. It rests on me... mission failure!"
"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."
