    1989-91 Eagles D probably the best ever in the NFCE. Buddy Ryan and Bud Carson said it was the best defense he ever coached, and best he ever saw before his death. I probably agree.

    I know, isn't it weird that the D wasn't talked about? I didn't realize until later that the 92 team had the best D in the NFL. I think a ton of people still don't know.

    The only real competition would have been between the 77 Cowboys and the 92 Cowboys. A very close runner up would be the 71 Cowboys. I don't see any other NFC East Super Bowl team capable of beating any of those three teams.

    Have you ever noticed that the Cowboys never lost a Super Bowl by more than 4 points? Until the Giant-Bills SB in 90, the three closest losses in Super Bowl history were the three Cowboy losses. Then the Giants win by 1 point in the 1990 Super Bowl.

    And, yet, they never won a Super Bowl by less than double digits. The five winning Super Bowls have an average margin of victory of 20 points.

    Wow. That Football Team team was a very tough group to beat but I believe the '92 Cowboys could do it. In '92 the NFC had the top two teams in the league. Even if it was the 49ers playing that SB, they would have beat the Bills.

    it was always talked about. The defense was on the cover of sports illustrated the week after beating Oakland in 92.

    people who do not know how good that defense was and only know the triplets aren’t worth paying attention to.

    with all respect this is just not a realistic view. Downplaying how good those other east teams were is rewriting history.

    They were great teams who dominated their Super Bowls. The giants dismantled the Broncos and Simms was nearly perfect..that giants team won 17 games in 86.

    the Football Team embarrassed the bills. They also won 17 games that year. They were all time teams.

    With all respect:

    92 Cowboys, ranked #1 defense, #1 against the run
    #2 offensive scoring

    71 Cowboys #1 ranked offense in both scoring and yardage, #3 ranked defense, #1 ranked takeaways, #2 against the run

    86 Giants #8 scoring offense, #10 offensive yards, #2 ranked defense scoring and yardage

    If the Giants had a serious chance against either team, they would have to really pass, not the 25 passes that Sims threw, because they would have gotten nothing from their 35 rushing attempts, excluding Rutledge's 3 sitdowns at the end of the game.

    ....But I might give you the Football Team, it would be a fight. However, the 71 Cowboy team had Roger Staubach.....an automatic loss for the Football Team..;)

    joe Morris rushed for 1500 yards, as a team they rushed for 2245 yards. They had a total of 5378 yards.

    the 92 Cowboys
    Emmitt rushed for 1713 and the team rushed for 2121 yards. Total yards for the team was 5606.

    those numbers seem pretty even especially when I keep seeing in this thread that there offense was bad and had no “Irvin”. Simms, Bavaro and Morris led the way on offense and they were pretty good.

    the giants gave up 236 points and 4757 yards.
    The Cowboys gave up 243 points and 3931 yards.

    You know what issue with the defense was? Just low the Cowboys in 93 without emmitt. They just got back LT before the season started and it took him a few weeks to get into shape...(kind of like Strahan in 07)

    they gave up 31 points and a bunch of yards in week 1 at Dallas when lt was famously winded and sick from being out of shape.

    they gave up 3 points in 8 quarters in the nfc playoffs to Bill Walsh and Joe Gibbs offense. I’d say that is how you measure them.

    You are showing the Cowboy offense averaging 15.6 ppg. Obviouisly that's not right.

    You can't compare specific numbers to teams in different years. The rules may be different, the sophistication, the size and athleticism, etc. Last season's National College Champion would beat the pants off those fat boys running around the NFL in the 1940's, for example.

    In 1979, the NFL created most of the rules relating to QB safety. In 1971, the year the Cowboys won Super Bowl 6, there was no such thing as "in the grasp" or "helmet to helmet". "Roughing the passer" occurred when you hit the QB after the ball was in the air or after the whistle blew.

    I saw plays where one defender held the QB while the other put a hit on him. I saw QB's slammed face first into the turf. This was legal so we should all think about this when we look at the old statistics prior to the 80's. They continued to change the rules for the sake of making the game more exciting by giving more advantages in the passing game like when DB's can touch the receivers, "defenseless player", etc.

    When comparing teams from different years, the only fair way is to compare their level of dominance to other teams in that particular season. Statistically, the Cowboys dominated their seasons more than the Giants dominated their season.

    Well I’m confused you used statistics to say Dallas was better and here you are doing it again.

    the 86 giants won more games than the Cowboys.
    They held Joe Montana’s 49ers to 3 points in the divisional round and shut out Joe Gibbs Football Team in the championship game...

    what’s more dominant than holding two of the greatest offensive coaches in the history of the league to a combined 3 points in two games?

    Also what you mentioned above about the changes in the games from the 80’s ( btw I know this and don’t need a lesson on it) should mean the giants offense was bad, yet it was very similar to the 92 Cowboys.

    So if the giants put up similar offensive numbers in a rougher defensive oriented league isn’t that a case for the giants?

    The 92 Cowboys not just in the NFCE but the strongest and deepest super bowl team ever.

    Didn't the 92 Football Team beat the 92 Cowboys?...And the 91 Football Team were light years better than the 92 Football Team.

    I don’t think using a regular season win is the correct way to measure something like this. NFC East rivalry games were always up for grabs regardless of records or even rosters sometimes.
