Kinda funny. I could be off on a few things here, so bear with me.
What Tony faced Thursday doesn't even begin to compare with what Troy went up against in San Francisco. On that day, in that NFL, defensive backs could do a lot more with receivers. And the 49er defense had a playmaker or two... or ten.
I'm guessing Deion Sanders, Tim McDonald, Merton Hanks, Ken Norton Jr, Bryant Young, Lee Woodall, and company might be more of a problem.
Also, the field at Candlestick that day was about as bad as I've seen in an NFL game. It still amazes me how those offenses did what they did in that game against the two best defenses in football.
I could get into who wasn't available for the Cowboys that day - Emmitt Smith for the most part, Erik Williams, Larry Allen (on one foot, basically), but then the offense two days ago was without some pieces, too.
