    I agree with everything said but with one exception, they did get to the Super Bowl two more times after spygate so it's not like they feel off the earth or something.

    yes....they did....and I respect the production of that team.....but even our Cowboy team...that lost to the 49ers in the NFC title game in 94....was better than they 2 Pats teams that lost to the Giants in the Super Bowl. Think about this...we actually WON....WON....a Super Bowl with Barry Switzer at head coach....that is how good we were. And that is indicative of the leadership of Aikman, Irvin and Emmit.

    Found myself laughing like a school kid and calling out plays before they were run. Particularly that rainy game in Philthy when Emmitt and the O Line put an absolute beat down on the dirty birds. Also found myself cursing like a mad man at the TV when Gollum Jones showed his "pre-stretch" gnarly-toothed face at the news conference to announce Jimmy's departure. It was SO awesome while it lasted. Those teams had talent to burn and the men to motivate them.

    But he did build the Cowboys dynasty. Too bad Jerry ran him off and then proceeded to spend the next 20+ years trying to get the credit for winning which has resulted ironically in us not winning.

    I don't see why you would get bashed. The Patriots teams can't compare with the Cowboys of the 90s.

    No matter what history is people will believe what justifies their emotions . Jimmy ran himself off and Jerry didn't help matters.
    I realize that's not convenient with your issues. It's the way of the world.

    Biggest problem is what Jerry did after Jimmy left. 20 years and he's still running the team into the ground trying to run things his way so he can get the credit.

    I'd just like to point out Jimmy's "no good" in Miami was taking the team into the playoffs and revamping their defense.

    Meanwhile Jerry was turning a dynasty into a 5-11 laughing stock until he finally brought in a Hall of Famer to fix it for him.

    Well, as far as Cowboys week on ESPN goes, I really enjoyed the "hail Mary game." Back then, I was in the Army at Fort Carson, Colorado. Three NCOs from the great frozen north were huge Viking fans. It was soooooo sweet to win that game!! I hadn't seen anything except the "hail mary" play since then and it was great to watch the whole thing like it was happening all over again! I had forgotten Pat Donovan's "Leon Lett" play on the punt that gave the Vikings their first TD. Without that score, the "hail mary" would not have been necessary. Ah, the memories of the REAL glory years.

    It mostly made me happy. I tried not to think about the future...I did what every fan of other teams accuse us of doing: I just lived in the past for a week. I'm happy I did. There will be enough time to think about the sorry future when the 2014 season starts. :(:(:(

    Yeah I always get a kick out of Jimmy 'struggling' in Miami. While they didn't win big he did go to the playoffs 3 of 4 years and won a couple of playoff games.

    Every single playoff/sb win in 92,93&95 were all by 10 points or more. You'll never see a team dominate like that again and the NFL will do whatever it takes for it to be the case.

    The embrace b/t Emmitt and Moose after Emmitt broke the rushing record is still a tear-jerker...

    That that "struggling" comment is always used by the Jerry defenders with an agenda. I think history shows that Jimmy was the mastermind behind the great teams of the 90s without question, but some posters refuse to admit it.

    I'd say the same about the niners, they had Arizona, StL, and another doormat team they walked over easily which went a LONG way to help them ensure homefield every year in the playoffs. I'm not sure we don't win the four in a row if we're at home when we played them in the playoffs. Instead we have to play two recent Super Bowl winners twice a year and an always tough playoff team in Philly.
