    1992 Dallas Cowboys

    The only thing I got left to say is, How 'bout them Cowboys!" Well-coiffed coach Jimmy Johnson's (pictured, left, with Michael Irvin) locker-room whoop after his team's 30-20 win over San Francisco in the NFC Championship Game curdled the blood of anyone who bristled at the Cowboys' claim to being "America's Team." Dallas was back in the Super Bowl for the first time in 14 years, with a spotlight-seeking owner (Jerry Jones), a bling-soaked, showboating, prima donna wideout (Irvin) and a too-good-to-be-true-cut-from-Hollywood quarterback (Troy Aikman). Rolling to a 16-3 mark, the Cowboys were an annoying circus of self-promotion (there were 22 radio and TV shows devoted to them) and in the Super Bowl they took on the stench of preening bullies. During a 52-17 humiliation of Buffalo, defensive tackle Leon Lett recovered a fumble and began waving the ball before he crossed the goal line -- only to be caught from behind by the hustling Don Beebe, who became a hero to Cowboys haters everywhere. -- John Rolfe

    Sounds like the writer is speaking for himself and not the casual fan. And why was 1992 so much worse than '93 or '95?

    1995 was such as dysfunctional bunch. My guess on 1992? Probably because it was the start of the dynasty.
