    Had Jimmy taken over after the Bears game there would be more players on the asthma field than the practice field.

    He would be hellbent on finding an O-Line and coordinator that would get the running game going. And he would release and fire coaches until he got what he wanted. He had David Shula as his O-Coordinator in part because Jimmy admired his dad so much and canned Shula after year 2 when he didn't get Emmitt the ball too much. Fired some O-Line coach in order to get Hudson Houck. We eventually got Norv, one of the best playcallers in the game and could beat teams with the run or the pass.

    I think given time he would find the right person. I question how much the game has gone by, but I think fundamentally Jimmy would create a sound football team. Sorta like Joe Gibbs did in his return to the Redskins. While Gibbs was a failure in Washington his 2nd time around, they were better than when he got them (and after he left them).

    Way too many people will not get your point. Nicely done. I was going to say Jimmy would have pushed them to improve or break. Radical change is the howling point of the hysterical masses.

    Yeah a backup runningback who has a combined three carries is surely the issue with this team. :rolleyes:

    never said it was. jimmy had no issue cutting bums to send a message. felix would have been dealt with quickly after showing up out of shape. he'd either have cutted him or traded him by now.

    Jimmy would discover that the salary cap and the new CBA wouldn't let him do those pysch-out tricks that he used so well in his glory days. No telling what his drafting would be like; the record in Miami was not so hot.

    Yes, but not the drama.

    I liked being able to edit mistakes. I liked helping people. The rest is not enjoyable.

    The first thing he'd do is make the lunatic owner uncomfortable. Force him to back away and allow the coach to be the face of the team again.

    Really, there is nothing else more important than that.

    If we're pipe dreaming a return of Jimmy, it could only come with power. He wouldn't return without it. With that power means less Jerry. Less Jerry always equates to improvement for the Cowboys.

    Just for kicks, who was the starting RB on the 1-15 team and who was the starting RB two years later.

    Funny how no other RB besides #22 ran half as good behind that great OL.

    Well, for one.....we're talking about Emmitt Smith here. An all timer. A generational talent.

    Two, our depth at RB at that time was awful. Who are we talking about here? Derrick Lassic? Sherman Williams? Give me a break.

    That was an epic OL.

    The first two games of 93 were epic. Failures. Emmitt returned and look what happened. Small sample but interesting none the less.

    "We can't win with this kid"! Didn't they have to get Ronnie Lott to calm him down?

    there is no way I think jimmy would come back to coaching, a GM position however... I think could be possible.. assuming that Jerry gives him full control as the GM.. and thats a BIG ASSUMPTION.
