    Check out the block from Issac Holt. Where did he come from? The bench? :flagwave:

    Probably a penalty in today's NFL. Definitely a penalty since it's the Cowboys in today's' NFL.

    Holt just basically lowered his shoulder and took the guy out.

    Looks pretty violent by today's little delicate standards. Definitely a fine or something.

    K-Marts return against the Deadskins on Monday night in the opening game of the '92 season at Texas Stadium beats the heck out of this one. There was no reason to be knocking cause that place was ROCKIN that night. That crowd was the loudest I have ever experienced at a Cowboys game. Not even the last game at that venerable venue against the Ravens equaled that night. The 2016 playoff game against Green Bay is a close 2nd.

    I remember that game... that punt return.

    I was in 11th grade back then.

    This play was essentially Dallas getting past their demons with respect to the Eagles. Didn’t they lose eight straight to Philly coming into this one? Not to mention, a few weeks earlier the Eagles lit up the Cowboys in Irving, sacking Aikman 11 or 12 times - Gang Green held us under 100 total yards that afternoon.

    Fast forward to this miserable December day at the Vet. Our offense couldn’t get much going before the Martin TD return. I think we had half our total yards after this play - the big plays coming late Beuerlein to Irvin. Fortunately, we were dealing with Jeff Kemp, not Randall Cunningham.

    This play was massive because it sort of took the veil off this seemingly unbeatable Eagle mystique. Washington was running away with the division, but we at least felt like we could compete. With Philadelphia, they dominated the Cowboys ever since the Buddy kneel-down game. Kelvin Martin did a lot to exercise those demons.

    For me, this was moving on from batteries in snowballs, the Luis Zendejas bounty, the Aikman ragdolling, Buddy Ryan, all of it.

    Plus we really needed this win to get the wildcard.

    It probably would be even though it shouldn't be. The guy giving chase fell to his knees and put his head in Holt's mid section. There was nothing else for Holt to hit when the guy led with his face.

    I remember this like it was yesterday. On a different angle it kinda shows Holt waving Martin in a specific direction so he could lineup the block.

    If I remember correctly, Holt was one of the only players Jimmy actually kept from the Vikings trade.
