    Here's the 1st thing. You can say that now. You or anyone else wasnt thinking it back then. We wanted 3-peat.
    Here's the 2nd thing. You are postng your opinion in hindsight.

    I will post a fact!

    FACT! We never had the opportunity to find out if 3-peat was possible. Winning SBXXX makes it so that we never had the opportunity to see if 4 in a row could have happened.

    Ha... That was 2 facts... Lol


    I credit jimmy with the three. I don't care. Could have been 4.




    . Jimmy was stuck with old man Dan - I will through all the time because I don't believe in running - Marino. There was a pic of them on cover of magazine choking each other. Lol... I bet it was about ball control and letting defense help win games instead of throwing ints.

    I didn't think the 5 years retired applied to owners. I can see JJ getting in as an owner, as a GM, he will need to have won multiple SBs with multiple coaches in multiple eras to overcome his current perception as a GM.

    Please don't mention Garrett in the same sentence as Jimmy Johnson...

    Apparently, you need to punch yourself in the nose.

    What an unnecessary slap at Landry. Jimmy Johnson was a fine coach. So was Landry. Why do you have to denigrate the outstanding Landry did of building the franchise? If there is no Landry in Dallas, then there probably is no Johnson in Dallas as the fortunes of the franchise would have changed dramatically.

    Pretty crazy that Jerry hired 7 head coaches in 23 years.

    The previous 28 years before that, there was only Landry.

    I wonder how that compares to the rest of the league over that same time frame. It seems very few teams keep coaches very long. I hope Dallas reaches a point of some relative stability. No coach will get 29 years with a team like Landry, but I am hoping Dallas doesn't switch them out every 3 or 4 years.

    Count me as unimpressed with Garrett so far. Success in the playoffs may win me over. Considering he cost us the playoffs three years running, I expect at least a win or two in the playoffs before I give him any credit.

    in wins perhaps, but not winning percentage re Wade did his in 56, Redball is 66. Jimmy's overall percentage will always be lower than expected due to 1-15 but I dare anyone to claim Redball is a better HC than Jimmy

    Jimmy was 2-0 in the big game, Landry 2-3 and he couldn't beat the Steelers

    Remember it was not the CAP era, it was pre cap , Jerry bankrolled superior team , Jimmy of course build it and coached wins.

    Note: not comparing Garrett to Jimmy or any legendary coach , so don't crank upon me. Lol

    I don't care about wins. I care about playoffs and Super Bowl appearances. The fact Garret is 4th in cowboys history in wins just shows you how meaningless and misleading that stat can be.
