    It's a joke that he's even on the practice squad... An embarrassing little remnant of Bad Jerry.

    Ok, I'll be kinder than "narrow minds." But the rest of this is right on the money. Its astounding to me how offended some people get when an analogy is used.

    I get the comparison of 2009 to 1991. Its about a team learning to take the next step. It does not mean everything else is parallel too, either currently or in the future. Take it for what it is and don't have an aneurysm over it folks.

    My biggest beef with this particular trope is that in '91 there was no salary cap and attendant rules. Even the sainted Jimmy Johnson wasn't the same once he had to deal with salary cap issues.

    That said, it's an analogy. We're lucky if the 'sportswriters' know what that means.....

    This is exactly it for me and nothing more. Does this team have holes..well depends on where Wade is standing...ok not funny...my point is for me..I feel this team took another step towards the ultimate goal...will they achieve it...who knows...will THIS TEAM compare to 90's...for me never....no matter how far they go...I just feel this team became a team this year..hopefully for the entire organization and fan base they will be hosting a trophy in the next three years before we begin another dreaded rebuilding stage...

    I am a nice guy, but from time to time I feel the need to be a little hostile and live up to my username. Frustration over fans who enjoy nothing more than putting down their fellow Cowboys fans will often fuel that in me. Thus "narrow minds."

    I was an English Major. My training is to look for allusions to other things, metaphors, similes and yes, analogies. I can see similarities in many things that are not exactly alike. It annoys the bloody hell out of me that people get so bent out of shape over every little detail of an analogy.

    An analogy does NOT mean every single detail is exactly a like. That is called a repetition of History. An analogy means there are similar factors going on. It doesn't even mean the exact same outcomes will happen. My gosh, let's get our panties in a wad and up in arms over a 1991 to 2009 comparison. Judas Priest spare me the damned drama.

    It is fine to psychoanalyze every iota of the football team and make diagnoses and determinations and predict fate. But damnit to hell, don't ever compare this team (or this player) to any other team (or player) in NFL History. Utterly damned ridiculous, or as I previously lambasted, "narrow minded."

    If my previous use of "narrow minded" offended anyone, oh well. They probably were being exactly that. It seems to be rather common and accepted.

    I know it's pretty surprising that a player wouldn't know that Colombo did not move to left tackle and that Doug Free filled in there, but I'm actually not.

    During the course of a game, from experience, it is easy for a player to concentrate on his responsibilities and nothing else. When you're standing on the sidelines sometimes it's difficult to see who is playing what on the o-line and he was probably paying attention more to coverages and the WRs. I don't really blame him for not know.

    It sort of falls into the "why does Romo play golf and not practice and study 24/7 in the offseason?" It's not quite that, but it in the area.

    The analogy is quite apt.

    This is a young team that had been in a serious drought and had to learn how to win. They had to develop a belief that they can win in the playoffs. They are an arrow pointing in the right direction.

    That applies to the coaches as well, enough said.

    That doesn't mean the 2010 Cowboys will be anything like the 1992 Cowboys but it does mean this team is the closest to the 1991 circumstances of any Cowboy team since.

    If you don't like the analogy feel free not to use it but for cripes sakes stop crying because others do.

    Like he is the only one that says really stupid things? You are the same guy that called the entire Cowboyzone board stupid homers. Go pimp your garbage elsewhere please.

    Other than winning a playoff game and getting bounced in the divisional round, I can't find a single other viable comparison. There is no running back on this roster that will break the all-time rushing record. There is no spark plug game-changing wide out. There is no Charles Haley, Darren Woodson, or young and dominant offensive line about to emerge.

    And most important, as you wrote, there is no Jimmy Johnson.
