    And first non-Cowboy. It was Switzer and Johnson, right?

    This week is going to be excruciating. Game day cannot get here fast enough.

    Sunday night we will either be elated or crushed.

  2. The Cowboys should have won more Super Bowls than they did. When Switzer won his Super Bowl – the Cowboys did it in spite of him. He inherited a team that was basically the best in the NFL for a number of years, whereas Mr. Happy and the Duke Boy basically turned water into wine in just a few short years after inheriting a talentless team (unless Aaron Curry is considered “talent”).

  3. Johnson took over a Miami program that had won a national championship in recent history. Then he took over a horrible Cowboys team though and created a dynasty with them.

    Mr. Happy took over a USC program that was down in the dumps and then took over an NFL team that was also down in the dumps, too.

    I already talked about what a joke Switzer was.

    If Mr. Happy can win the Super Bowl in less than 3 weeks, he’ll forever change his legacy for the much, much better. And he’ll have done it without the benefit of a moronic Hershel Walker type of trade that benefitted him.

    Carroll and Johnson are the two most motivational Coaches I have seen In the NFL.
    They just have that gift for helping to elevate a players performance Imo.

    Hopefully the Seahawks will have similar success as the Cowboys had under Johnson.

  5. I think Mr. Happy is simply doing what Johnson did in Dallas… just getting more talent than anyone else.

  6. I think Johnson wanted to win just as bad as when he went to the Dophins, he just didn’t draft as well as he did in Dallas. When you’re wasting #1 picks on jokes like Yatil Green, you’re not going to get it done as well as when you’re drafting the likes of Emmitt Smith in round one.

    Though it is a radical concept, Jerry Jones may well have had a lot more to do with successful personnel moves in the great Johnson era of Dallas than most people realize (and Johnson wants to admit.) It was Jones who insisted on bringing Charles Haley and Deion Sanders to Dallas.

    Problem is of course that Jones also lost his touch and tried to repeat the signings with the likes of Terrell Owens. Johnson may have lost his touch as the college recruiting pool he knew so well as a Hurricane coach dried up with time and his inside knowledge dissipated.

    Hopefully, Schneider is not relying on Carroll recruiting insights as the source of his talent magic, because, like Johnson, that knowledge is fading as well (and Carroll is upfront about it.)

  8. Jimmy Johnson never won a Super Bowl with D. Sanders on his roster.
