Always a treat watching Michael and Jerry and he can make some bad music together guaranteed!
Personally, I wish the old guys wouldn't meddle so much with the young teams.
Let the young guys write their own story without constantly being compared to Acheman, Irvin, Diamond in the Rough....
I respect him for keeping it real.
In the 90s is what you seen to be saying is why he isn't a class act. People change and is it not possible to become a class act now that he has matured and over came his addictions?
I will grant you that point and I hope he has--
Candidly I still have my doubts. He still seems to be making wrong place/wrong time, suspicious headlines time after time, even up to a few years ago....
But again--if we are talking about Michael Irvin the football player, I have no doubts.
One of the best in the history of the Cowboys and an absolute deserving HOF stud of a receiver. On the field--there is no question as to the value or impact of Michael Irvin. None. Zero. The man was one of the best in the history of the franchise, maybe the best receiver that ever wore a star if we're being honest. And that includes TO.
Funny stuff, like him or not the dude is real. I was in love at first stake...too funny
Go get that Championship Cowboys
As a cowboys fan how can you not love Michael. The guy loves his cowboys that when he’s supposed to be impartial he whole heartedingly can care less and bangs the table for his boys. Also still communicates with jerrry Jones and has input with the team to help. He definitely had input getting amari.
There is a special place in my heart for the Playmaker. Guy is the best.
I agree with much of this, and I realize he did a lot of stupid stuff in his younger days, but since those days I haven't heard of anything that would cause me to classify him as a "prick and a scumbag". Did I miss something, or are you judging the man by the foolish things he did as a young man, not long removed from the ghetto?
he would burn out after the first practice, but he is a great motivational speaker
Irvin was an amazing, amazing player and incredibly clutch.
IMHO, he is the 3rd greatest WR of all time, surpassed only by Rice and Moss.
And all the stats in the world won't change my opinion. He was relentless and caught everything that came to him with rare, rare exception.
One play stands out:
In a losing effort to the Rams in 92' with Dallas trying to rally, Irvin caught the ball over the middle and on his way to crashing to the turf was signaling for the time out to be called to give his team a chance to complete the comeback.
He was unstoppable, we just didn't need to feature him as much as other WR's considered better.
found the play:
18:00 or so of this video
I love Irvin! Great interview even though I don’t like Jimmy Kimmel that much lol
He is awesome, those were some great years watching them play.
I actually kinda bumped into him a few years ago, at the MGM in Vegas.
When I saw him all you heard was someone scream loudly
"Yo Mike, how bout them cowboys"
Me of course..lol
One thing people forget about Irvin- we all knew what he was doing, but he never failed a league drug test. That five game suspension in 1996 stemmed from an arrest for drug possession and a lengthy legal trial that smeared the image of Cowboys and, in some ways, the NFL.
But since then Irvin has matured. He's one of my all-time favorites and I absolutely love watching him support the Cowboys on television today.
Yep, most definitely.
I became a Boys fan in '75 so I just missed Lilly or Ill bet I would have had 5.
Meaning that Playmaker is number 3 of my 4 man Cowboy Mt. Rushmore.
I'll leave 4 blank, but its a recent addition
Irvin called Jerry Rice, "Jesus in cleats".
If he became a coach I'd be worried that he choke one of our players/coaches, even by accident. He can still be our hype man tho! LMAO
He lost my respect for going on the Kimmel show.
how can you not be a fan of Irvin? Seems like if you don't like him you might have a wife whose name is Gertrude.
Great interview. I've always liked Mike. It's sad that I never really saw him play live. And if I did, I barely remember. Because I was young.
