    It's not that is was ALL Jimmy. It's that it wasn't Jerry. But yes, Jimmy was the catalyst.

    I still never understood drafting Steve Walsh in the 1st round of the supplemental draft after they just drafted Aikman. It turned out to be the Number one overall pick the next season and could have been HoFers Cortez Kennedy or Junior Seau. He got a 1st, 2nd and 6th(I think) for Walsh from NO, but it wasn't the Number one overall.

    well for someone who was so bad to the bone at talent evaluation, he missed many also. but winning buys a lot of misunderstood memories.

    I agree that the Super Bowls were great, but that's what was so disappointing. They had a chance to do something historic and the 2 men in charge couldn't put their egos in check long enough to accomplish it. I give them equal credit for the success and equal blame for the losses. Why Johnson gets off scot-free to most fans is what I don't understand.

    There's no way to be sure, but there's nobody that could have gotten off to a better start.

    Thanks for proving my ^ quote correct. Dallas and Miami were completely different situations. He was allowed to rebuild from scratch in Dallas where as Miami had its legendary QB on the downside of his career to try and build around. Also, he did rebuild the defense very quickly.

    Also, most importantly Miami has zero impact on who deserves the credit in Dallas for 3 Superbowls. Thats like saying Bill Parcells wasn't a good coach because he didn't win a title with the Jets, Patriots or Cowboys. Just idiotic.

    Dallas Deals QB Walsh to New Orleans
    September 25, 1990|From Associated Press

    NEW YORK — Dallas quarterback Steve Walsh, who has been Troy Aikman's backup since both were drafted last year, was traded to New Orleans today for three draft picks.

    The Cowboys' owner, Jerry Jones, said his team will receive the Saints' No. 1 and No. 3 choices in 1991 and a No. 2 pick in 1992. Jones said the No. 2 pick could be upgraded to a No. 1 if Walsh performs well for the Saints.

    The last pick ended up being Eric Williams.

    People forget Jimmy had something in Miami even he, his ego, and his hair couldn't plow through..... Dan Marino. The city of Miami would've castrated Jimmy on the spot if he had gotten rid of Dan like he wanted to. He never got to build it from scratch like he did in Dallas.

    With that said, I definitely give Jerruh credit in being an integral part of the 3 Super Bowl wins during the 90's. He was a helluva Owner back then. You can't make pancakes without eggs, and Jerruh was definitely the egg to Jimmy being the flour. Flour being the most important ingredient, of course...

    I wonder what would've happened if Dallas had drafted Barry Sanders number one in 89 and stayed with Walsh as their QB.

    Whatever. We haven't done jack since 1995. Do his first 6 years of ownership make up for the next 18 years of futility?

    Maybe. Look at the number of SBs won by teams in the same time frame as Jerry. I discount Jerry a year or two since we really really sucked early on. How many teams have won more SBs than Dallas since 1990?

    I give little credit to Jerry for those years. Sure, yeah, he hired Jimmy, but that's about it. Jerry's ego is too big to keep any competent coach around for long, so it's not likely we'll see a repeat of the Jimmy years in my lifetime.
