Ok, seriously, Aikman was accurate and great because he was consistant and had a line that could protect and maul at the same time. He had the best running game in the league which didn't hurt. Emmitt was the greatest, period. MVP's, rushing titles, everything. He could run, catch and block. Will never get the full credit for how good he was. He's the reason Aikman doesn't have high TD numbers. inside the 5, was Emmitt time. In my opinion, Irvin was the straw that stirred. He would not let the team lose. Double teamed his entire career and could not be stopped. My favorite Cowboy player of all time. You can track the Cowboys downfall to the day Irvin got hurt. Team was never the same. Here's some trivia to. Michael Irvin never, in over 1500 tests, ever failed a drug test.
