    “The year that we had what most would say was our best team of the 90s, we won nine games by a touchdown or less – by a touchdown or less,” he said. “So that ‘imposing your will’ stuff, I don’t remember it that way.”

    Jones did allow, however, the Cowboys’ current offensive balance is reminiscent of prior teams. Dallas ranks No. 15 in passing offense, but seventh in total offense thanks to the efforts of the ground game. Tony Romo is ranked just 12th in the league in passing, but Jones said his efficiency over the last three weeks has reminded him at times of the Cowboys’ offenses with Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, Jay Novacek and Smith.

    “That team had it going balanced,” he said. “Now I’m not going to say this is that team at all and shouldn’t – y’all will run me off the phone. But that balance is starting to look a little familiar.”

    Let's chill out a bit there we're 3-1 and we have A LITTLE reason to be optimistic... :facepalm:

    Chill out because we are exhibiting similar balance to prior teams? Balance. He specifically prefaces the comment saying he isn't comparing the players or the teams outside of that.

    Wait...what? Look at what you bolded:

    “That team had it going balanced,” he said. “Now I’m not going to say this is that team at all and shouldn’t – y’all will run me off the phone. But that balance is starting to look a little familiar.”

    I think Jerry chilled out lol. Not sure what you're reading but he's not making any comparisons or anything.

    I see nothing wrong with it. He's basically pointing to the balance aspect. Not saying they're as good or anything. He used their balance as an example.

    Where is Jerry getting this won 9 games by a touchdown or less stat? I just looked at our superbowl years and none of them had more than 4 or 5.

    LOL.

    Just another reason to bag on Jerry I guess. This one was nothing and so someone had to bag on it anyway and try to make it into something.

    Jerry should just keep his mouth shut sometimes. 92 - 4 games by a TD or less, 93 - 4 games, 94 - 3 games and 95 - 2 games.
