    Gosselin: How the Cowboys’ dynasty died late one night nearly 20 years ago

    Jimmy Johnson (L), with a concerned look on his face, walks past the Cowboy's locker room March 29, 1994, with Jerry Jones on their way to a news conference at Valley Ranch where Johnson announced that he would not coach the Dallas Cowboys anymore.

    Jerry Jones' ego is as big as his wallet.

    I like the guy in the comments section who says "I've heard that story 20 times and it never gets easier".

    While this is true, if Jimmy Johnson's ego was more under control..i.e. winning more important than getting most or all of the credit, he could have made it work also.

    I mean what these two missed was that Dallas was set to have a decade long run of dominance. I mean Barry Switzer got them the 3rd title.

    I think most of us here are very thankful to Jerry Jones. Without him the demise of the Cowboys may not have been possible. :kitten:

    Switzer did nothing to get them to their third title in 4 years..it was all
    Jimmies know how that brought them to that plateau

    Lifelong (theirs) here, but I can't imagine having two teams in Texas and the Cowboys still being a dynasty. :kitten:

    Unfortunately we couldn't influence the NFL to grant the new franchise to a
    city "worthy" of having it. so we'll just have to live with their pathetic existence
    for now till they pull another boycott and the NFL relocates them

    in the meantime the legacy of America's Team and it's success isn't going
    away any time soon even if they are only mediocre and the jack ass in
    charge has a face that looks like Al Davis shriveled up nut sack
