    Jimmy did a good job in Miami and then decided to retire. He had nothing left to prove. Jerry is still trying to prove that he can field a contender with a team that was not built by Jimmy. Bless your heart, you love some Jerry don't you?

    First of all I don't think Jimmy was talking about fans being optimistic. What fans think or say have little effect on the teams success. He is talking about eternally. As parcels used to say, don't eat the cheese! Don't believe your own hype. It helps keep you from getting complacent and fat.

    Oh so Jimmy did well in Miami? Halfway decent in the regular season and obliterated in the playoffs.

    I thought that made someone a loser choker but I must be mistaken.

    I think Jimmy is right but I also think with some of the changes on the staff and even in Garrett this season, we could see a change in how the Cowboys respond. Right now all Jimmy has to go by is what has been the case not how things will be in the future. I think this team knows how to deal with adversity now they need to show they can deal with success.

    He lost his last game 62-7 to the Jaguars. Nothing left to prove lollolol

    Marino retired after that and thanked everyone but Jimmy Johnson.

    My point isn't, and that was clear, that Jimmy wasn't a great coach for us. I asked what he did in the NFL since and it wasn't much. So yeah it's easy to be an analyst and throw out criticism of those still in the arena.

    Pretty simple point but as usual the "intellects" here make it a you're a hater, you love Jerry, kool aid blah blah

    It's just not possible for you to leave Romo out of any discussion at all? He was never brought up here until once again your obsession takes over.

    You simply come across as a fan that thinks Jerry is on the same level as Jimmy when it comes to being a football man. If you want a PR man for the team, or somebody to sell jerseys, Jerry is your man. If you want a man that has had success at every level on the game and knows how to build winning football teams, Jimmy is the choice. At no time should these two be compared unless it is under those guidelines.

    But they did benefit each other. Even players like Aikman have said as much. Jimmy is a great coach but Jimmy never dealt with one single contract in Dallas that was the role of Jerry to deal with the players. It was also Jerry who took the criticism of firing a beloved HC in Landry to hire a college coach in Jimmy but Jerry took the heat. Cowboys success can be contributed to both men and neither did as well when the other was gone.

    Please frame your own arguments not mine.

    I asked a simple question - what did Jimmy do in the NFL post-Dallas. And I made a simple point - easy for those no longer in the arena to criticize those who are.

    That's what Jimmy is paid to do now - not coach football games or run the largest most successful sports franchise outside of Man U

    Actually, I brought up Romo with regards to you because you are always cheerleating for him on here and now you are doing the same for Jerry too.

    Lol yeah it's my fault you brought up Romo in a thread where no one mentioned him. If it weren't for little ol me you'd never bring the guy up.

    Oh, and yes - I do cheer for Romo and Jerry. I am a Cowboys fan.

    There is a difference between cheer and cheerlete. One of them involves pom poms...

    I find Cowboy fans to mostly be glass half broken kind of people.

    Obviously the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
