First post aimed at me! Welcome to the forum! But I'm talking about through the 80's. Murchison's failure to sign and upgrade the team led to the fall of the Cowboys during that decade. Many of the starters inherited from 1979 and before started falling off, etc. Instead of improving the team (improve or lose ground is what I think happens in the NFL) Murchison stood pat, bad drafts, injuries, etc kept the team from living up to the talent we had in Danny White. Reminds me of what's happening now with Romo, we sign stars but ignore the trenches. It's the opposite of how the Cowboys have won SB's in the past.
