    Don't forget this is now a different league with a cap. You can't build a team like they did now. You can't just pull your boot straps up or will your way to a great team. You'd make a great cheer leader.

    Well Jimmy was working with the same constraints as the coach before him, what's his excuse for letting the Cowboys go to the bottom of NFL. I think you were cheering a little bit for the coach that was there before Jimmy, were you not. Before you answer put down the pom poms.

    I do think Jimmy Johnson is the greatest coach that ever lived and nothing is going to mind unless I see one in the future, which brings me to my next point. I want to see a coach as good or greater coach the Dallas Cowboys in the future and make the Cowboys a Super Bowl champ for 5 years straight. I want to see greatness again in Dallas.

    If you want to debate me then you'll need to be respectful. Jimmy will never be considered the same as Landry by the vast majority. I appreciate your zeal for ole Jimmy but there just aren't a lot of people in the entire American football world who would say Jimmy is better than Landry.

    We've already been over how Landry had to build his team. Don't forget that Jimmy was handed the number one pick which most people would have used on Aikman. So no kudos for Aikman except he didn't screw that up. And Irvin was already on the team so no kudos there. That one belongs to Landry and Schramm. And Jimmy didn't want Emmitt but did have the sense to listen the those around him. So 1/2 a kudo there.

    You have to remember I liked Tom as a coach and watched him for years, but I loved Jimmy as a coach. When I saw Jimmy coach in college I said we need to get him as the Cowboys coach. Jimmy didn't care what people thought and just wanted to win. When he dressed the Miami Hurricanes up in army clothes and marched them off the plane in Oklahoma it was fantastic. Jimmy was ready to do whatever needed to get his teams fired up and ready to win.

    I like Jimmy a lot and I think he's a fantastic coach. He just is never going to be legendary for the majority.

    Landry was much more of an innovator.

    I agree. While I agree Johnson was more of an overt motivator and people tout how much fear they had of Johnson, people need to know how afraid the players were of Landry. I've never heard of him yelling at players although I've been told he could get a little agitated and raise his voice. Apparently they were afraid to fail him. And he had 'the look'. Yeah Landry left his stamp on the NFL.

    So, essentially a positive post with a perspective from the polar opposite of the constant "whine" perspective, this is great for a corrective to that viewpoint, though self-critical this perspective is not.

    Thought this thread could use some humor from a....ahhh....goofy perspective. Neh?
