The Coach: Jimmy Johnson Key Roster Names: QB - Aikman RB - E. Smith RB - Moose WR1 - Irvin TE - Novacek OGs - Newton, Gogan OTs - Tuinei, Cheek C - Stepnoski Pretty good offense there, right? The 1990 Cowboys started off 3-7. There was no social media, but they were getting CRUSHED by the media at the time. They said Johnson was in over his head (that would change just 6 games later), Aikman was being vilified because the offense was pathetic (they score 20 points once in 10 games), etc. Yet, in a terrible NFCE at the time, they managed to win 4 in a row and needed to finish just 8-8 to make the playoffs. Spoiler: Aikman got hurt and we lost the last two, finishing 7-9. I hold the 90's Cowboys in high regard, maybe one of the best teams ever assembled. Still, good teams and good coaches can have bad years. You want to switch coaches? Okay. Be prepared for some possible losing, though. Even with a great team, it may take years before another coach gets a team to gel, and many of today's players might be past their peak performing years. In 1996, I didn't consider our team old and the roster was almost exactly the same as our SB teams. No more SBs, though.
