For those of you that have been Cowboys fans a long time, I was wondering what the general attitude was in Dallas when Jerry Jones and Jimmy Johnson came in and cleared house in 1989? How long did it take you to adjust to a new regime? When I read about Landry having 20 straight winning seasons, my mouth drops. That has to be one of the greatest accomplishments in the history of professional sports. I don't think it will ever be duplicated. I can remember in the mid to late 80's, my father (who hated the Cowboys), telling me that "he's the only coach the Cowboys have ever had". At the time, I had no idea what that meant, and had no idea of the reverence in that statement for him, even as a die hard Skins fan. If Joe Gibbs was fired after a couple of losing seasons, I'd still be beside myself because of what he's done for the team and the area as a whole...and Gibbs has been a head coach only 1/2 the time of Landry. My eyes pop open when I look back and see that players like Bill Bates, Michael Irvin, Nate Newton, Ken Norton, and Mark Tuinei were all brought to Dallas by Landry. He has to get at least some of the credit for the future Dallas dynasty. I just wish I was a bit older so I could remember more of the guy. He seems like he wasn't only a great coach, but he redefined the way the game is played as well.
