Imagine how great the competition would be between him and Belichick...
Just a thought.
Still got Jerry Jones though.
Jimmy was always going to look to retire sooner than later. He loves his off-time.
Still, we might have won 4 or 5 in a row.
Jimmy never stayed anywhere more than 5 years.
4 super bowl victories in a row...
lets say free agency never took place
jimmy would have won the 96,97 and 98 super bowl then retired
Yeah, I think that was part of the problem; Jimmy couldn't figure out how to keep coaching the same team after 5 years.
I really do.
Jerry was in his proper place when Jimmy was here. The "what if" scenario of Jimmy coaching in Dallas for 30 years presumes Jerry stays in the owners box, b/c Jimmy wouldn't have had it any other way.
Thats silly talk. Jimmy resigned b/c Jerry tried to pry player personnel away from him the 94' contract extension offer. All of Jimmy's previous gigs were a step up the coaching ladder.
Go look at Miami's drafts particularly on defense when Jimmy coached there. Jason Taylor....Patrick Surtain.....Sam Madison......he was finding HOFers and pro bowlers on draft day at a time Jerry couldn't find anything. Odds are, the dynasty would have continued at least until Aikman retired, and we don't know when that might have been had Jimmy been the one finding and motivating players.
what did he do after the salary cap?
Jimmy bombed in Miami with full control
He had Marino on his last leg and they didn't get along. He ceeded the Dolphins to Dan.
He still drafted well and coached up the Dolphins defense to the #1 ranking. It was easier building from scratch than inheriting a team with an entrenched HOF Qb not playing well.
Untrue. What he did in Miami would viewed by Garret supporters as incredible success.
His teams in Dallas, had enough backup talent to form another team. Hence, he had the means to buy all the good talent and Jerry just signed the checks.
That appeared to be Jimmy's downfall in Miami.
He wouldn't bench a legend.
Marino had been great but was never the same after his Achilles tendon injury.
His tenure in Miami was only a failure in relation to what he had accomplished in Dallas. But few had ever accomplished what he had in Dallas. He was in the company of Lombardi, Knoll, Shula, and Walsh. Nobody has ever done it in 2 different cities, and I don't know why Jimmy is held to that standard by some.
Don't do this to yourselves.
We don't know what things would be like if Jimmy stayed as head coach.
No one was going to give him another Hershel Walker trade deal to keep the dynasty going.
He was 36 wins and 23 loses with the Dolphins.
With 2 wins and 3 loses in the playoffs.
I think we could have gotten another 2 or 3 years out of Jimmy but yea he wasn't going to stay that long anyway. Could have won 4 SBs though at least.
