    The only thing underrated is chemistry. I don't think many understand what a magical thing it is to put together a team of people from all over the country together, and have them all play consistently and proficiently in unison. It isn't easy. It's takes a great coaching staff and scouting team to piece together those dynasty teams. Throw in the cap factor and it makes it even more difficult. Really got to take your hat off to The Patriots for putting together the pieces they've had there over the years. Even after tearing the team down to its bones, they stay in the playoffs. I hate them. I hate them so much. They're like the Nickelback of football. They keep turning out #1's and I hate them.

    That Aikmans' backup was pretty bad. Who was that, BTW? Was it Babe? Is that why they went out and got Beurlein?

    Ah, I see. So, when we lose two with Emmitt out, it isn't because we have a backup who was a 4th round rookie that had never played in an NFL game. But when we lose with Aikman out it is because of his backup? I see that logic.

    Also, I thought it was all about Emmitt? If it was all Emmitt should have won anyway right?

    My bigger problem with it. If that Offensive line was so amazing how come the other backs never seemed to do well on the rare occassion when Emmitt missed a game, or had to leave a game. If that line was so amazing and the biggest reason he was so great why didn't the other backs seem to ever do anything behind that line.

    I wouldn't call any of the three players overrated, but Irvin was the most replaceable.

    A QB handles the ball on nearly 100% of all offensive snaps.

    An RB like Emmitt was given the ball perhaps 70% or more of the time on running plays back in that era.

    But a WR like Irvin might have had the ball thrown his way on perhaps just 30-40% of all passing plays.



    At any given moment, an offense usually has one QB, a couple of running backs (HB+FB combo), but perhaps 3 WRs and a TE.
