You guys need to realize that it's not about Jimmy or Jerry per se.

The 90s Cowboys existed because they got extremely lucky to be the beneficiary of an incredibly unfair trade that allowed them to build a competitive advantage over everyone else in the NFL for a period of time.

The Cowboys from 1990-1992 simply weren't playing by the rules during draft day.

They hit on Irvin and Aikman, which would have been enough to make them a playoff team, but then the boatload of draft picks that flooded in from the Herschel Walker robbery pushed them over the top.

How much you want to bet Jerry resigns him in season after Romo hits a hot streak?

I mean, you act as if Jones is not to blame for this!!!!!!!!

Jones has had plenty of chance to move Romo.

All Jerry.
Yes, it was Jerry's fat wallet that did it. Wake up. We bought those SB rings. His money put us over the top. I give credit to Jimmy for drafting well for sure. He was definitely a HUGE part of winning those SBs. I'm not like you trying to eliminate 1 of them out of the equation. They were BOTH a reason why we won. It wasn't one and not the other. It wasn't ALL Jimmy.

Losing him soured half the Dallas fan base in the 90s and I see you're still one of the hardcore leftovers... but firing Jimmy isn't the reason we are the team we are today which is something you're oddly hanging onto. It's so funny that we're talking about him in this thread.

Only a partial truth. Truth is Jimmy developed a great team and had it taken away b/c Jones was an egotistical turd.

Jones could easily have another 2 Lombardi Trophies had he understood he hit a vein ...

Most of those players that contributed to those Super Bowl teams were home-grown and drafted.

Charles Haley was a free agent signing, and he was a contributor, and Deion Sanders came later, but he was only around for one Super Bowl.

It wasn't really about Jerry's wallet, D-Unit. It was more about all the players they drafted during those years.

Oh, we agree. This team is not Jimmy's fault or his firing.

It is Jerry's fault.

Cowboys fans just don't understand the nature of that 90s team.

Without the Herschel Walker trade, they simply don't win those Super Bowls. They might have been a playoff team for a few years, but they don't win even one of those Super Bowls.

If you don't have a talent advantage over other teams, it's hard to separate from the pack and become a Super Bowl team, let alone a dynasty.

The other thing that most Cowboys fans almost universally refuse to admit, year after year, is that you are NEVER as talented as you think you are. The Cowboys receive a disproportionate amount of attention year after year because of the size of the fanbase, not the talent of the team. If the Cowboys were in Jacksonville, they would just be another mediocre team.

Every year, a bunch of Cowboys fans start talking about the Superbowl, and every year you finish 8-8.

...and I agree with that too. Except I don't know who's overpaid. I'm pretty happy with the contracts we got going on.

I'd add that player leadership is a major concern. Team chemistry is a slight concern mostly because we got a lot of new bodies on defense and a make shift OL.

It's not that bad. The Cowboys have some talent, and they have enough to be a perennial playoff team, but they don't have enough to really separate from the pack like the 90s teams did.

It's just very hard to create a powerhouse team without extra draft picks and insider info.

Hah. It's not even that. There are fans on every team that think their team can win the SB. Why is it THAT much different when it comes to Cowboys fans?

It's all media driven. Why? Cause it makes the most money for them to pump up the Cowboys because of the huge fan base.

A powerhouse team? This is exactly my point. You aren't even in the same area code.

You need a franchise QB and smart player personnel folks who can turn talent over to the development guys.

Dallas is severely lacking the last two and so-so number 1.

Cowboys lack talent in the OL and DL.

Jerry does not like to draft or spend in these areas.

But WR and CB .... Jones breaks the bank

Again, he does not understand the game.

Even if you have a franchise QB and smart personnel folks you can only go so far.

You need a real competitive advantage to become a powerhouse. I'd bet money that if the Herschel Walker trade never happened, the Cowboys are a typical 10-6, 11-5 team that makes the playoffs a few times but never wins a single Super Bowl in the 90s.

Don't let me talking him up confuse you with the consensus. I'm still damn happy he's on the Cowboys. I just wish he and Romo had put the work in to get on the same page.

Been hearing this for how long?

He is already on the same page with Austin and Witten.

Of course that Walker trade helped the Cowboys propel to those SBs. That's an obvious fact.

The problem with those 90s teams is now that they happened, it's created an expectation that it's just that "easy" to build a winner. But there is no Herschel walker trade to bail out Jerry Jones and whoever he hires now.

Say that in 2006 Jerry traded, uh, Julius Jones for multiples first round picks in consecutive years to some stupid GM.

Those Tony Romo teams bolstered by a flood of young first round talents would have been multiple Super Bowl winners by now. Guaranteed.

The point I'm trying to make is that it was a once-in-a-generation type of windfall. That kind of thing doesn't happen more than once in a blue moon. It was easy for the Cowboys to build a powerhouse back then because of it, but people need to realize that it's insanely hard to build a dynasty without that kind of windfall.

By playing fair, playing by the rules, the Cowboys right now cannot expect to be much more than what they are. That doesn't mean that the GM and coaches are incompetent; it just means that in the NFL it's super hard to separate yourself from the pack if you're playing "fair" on draft day.

Long before Dez got here. Romo hasn't had a single WR who he's been able to build a special relationship with. The only receiver he has is Witten and look how great that is. If he would only put in the same kind of work, then our WRs would get on the same page with him.

There's plenty of blame to go around on that... Like I said... leadership is a problem around these parts.

Peyton Manning has a better rapport with his Denver WRs than Romo has with his Cowboy WRs.

That 2007 team was pretty good. They also had a good year in 2009, but in both cases, some deficiencies on their roster kept them from going deep into the playoffs.

Add a stud DB here, a solid rotational DL there, a better FB here, and a beastly OG there, and those teams might have been alot more.

The only way to get all of those guys in *ADDITION* to the studs they already had on the roster is if they had multiple draft picks to play with in previous years.

If they had that, they could have done it. Without a ton of extra draft picks, it's hard to solidify every level of your team *and* fortify your depth.

The 2007 team needed some more DBs to beat the Giants in the playoffs, but if they had more depth there I think they could have gone to the Super Bowl. Their nickel corner let them down in that game.

The 2009 team had a great defense and great offensive skill players but their offensive line just completely let them down in the playoffs against Minnesota. If they had more OL depth and better starters there, they win that game and maybe beat the Saints in the NFCCG, imho.
