the SKins board has a 13 page debate of EMMIT v. BARRY and since this is all Hypothetical I wanted to add a little twist. You know the rhetoric of those fans, who EMMITT made careers rushing v. their teams. Some respect the POWER some belittle it by saying it was his OLINE... A redskin fan actually said he would fear BARRY more with those COWBOY teams than he did EMMITT who was I guess a product of the system!!! My first thought was he didnt understand fooball but then I went with it and tried not to dismiss it as lack of knowlege about the NFL but about personalities!!! Now before we bring up the tired old comparison in this exercise in monotany I wanted to take this fantansy and turn it into reality based on what I know. based on the psyche of BARRY and JIMMY!!! If BARRY played for the COWBOYS during the same time as EMMITT, what type of player would he have been... IMHO BARRY would have been traded by JIMMY JOHNSON for about 10 or 12 maybe more draft picks and some players going into his contract season... BARRY running style did not fit the man and his VISION let alone the NFC EAST... BARRY had problems with BOBBY ROSS he loved WAYNE FONTS, why? IF BARRY quit on ROSS he would have tried to quit on JIMMY 2 weeks into TC or forced a trade. BUT JIMMY was too smart for that, if u didnt fit his system u were gone, PERIOD. Big name trades like HERSCHEL and LOCKHART would have been accompanied by BARRY SANDERS!!!! then ADD into the mix STRONG PERSONALITIES... like IRVIN, AIKMAN, MOOSE, HALEY, Jr. NATE among others, BARRYs bla-se "ah shucks" personality would have not mixed well with a group of guys who despised losing and cared nothing about STATS and ESPN HIGHLIGHTS!!! other key points that would have expedited the BARRY SANDERS trade, much like the COLTS traded MARSHALL FAULK!!! 1. ALL PRO FB was of no use with BARRYs running style. 2. 3rd and 1 would be nightmares with no QB sneak in the playbook. 3. poor playoff performances time and time again. 4. poor rushing yards on grass and cold weather. 5. lack of catching and blocking ability. 6. NO GOALLINE RB (I'm sorry but I dont see "TOUCHDOWN" TOMMY VARDELL scoring 25 TDs for the COWBOYS of the mid 90s) so besides the obvious football issues (just a few listed above) BARRYs personality would not have fit in DALLAS so all of u BARRY apologist now that u finnaly realize he is not coming back u can stop with the fantasy of if he PLAYED for JIMMY JOHNSON!!! Now I guess we can talk about who JIMMY would have traded him to and for what?
