Disappointed Cowboys Fans Should Remember The 1992 Season


The Dallas Cowboys took one on the chin after sleepwalking in Seattle on Sunday. But don’t panic Cowboy fans. In fact, I think I have a comparison that is very similar to our current situation that can still allow us to still have some major hope for this 2012 Season.

All we need to do is remember the 1992 Dallas Cowboys for inspiration.  That team which was arguably the best Dallas Cowboy team ever, beat the then Superbowl champion Washington Redskins in the Monday Night Football opener. After that big win, Dallas would then get blown out on the road by the Philadelphia Eagles in week 4 by the very similar score of 31-7.

That Dallas team also had a young inexperienced aggressive defense, a young star running back, a controversial #88 at wide-receiver, and a quarterback who needed to take charge and put it all together to reach his full potential as a MVP and Superbowl Champion.   The final result – the 1992 Cowboys rebounded at home the next week, ironically shutting out the Seattle Seahawks, 27-0. They then went on to finish the season 13-3, become NFC East Champions, and won the NFC Title game in San Francisco against the #1 seed 49ers.

I am not saying we didn’t hit a speed bump on Sunday. But if I was head coach Jason Garrett, I would draw this comparison between the greatest Cowboy team ever. A team he was a member of.  It only proves that a season is not lost with one blow-out road loss. This season is far from over.

    The difference is that we don’t have a Troy, Emmitt or Michael on board.

      Actually Romo, Murray and Dez/Miles are more than good enough to win a SB. The skill positions have not been our problem over the last 5 or so years. It’s the trenches. They have ignored the O and D lines for so long. That’s where our problem has been and continues to be.

    Agree with David! Can Romo make the big play when it matters? I think not. And I’m sad for the Danny White redux….

      Dude, you and David are both morons. First of all, Romo is way better than Danny White everv was. Second, Danny White had a better team that Romo was on. Point? Figure it out, yourself. You may be dumb, but you should see where I’m trying to tell dumb@.s.ses like you.

      Dude, you and David are both morons. First of all, Romo is way better than Danny White. Second, Danny White had a better team that Romo was on, the years before this season. Point? Figure it out, yourself. You may be dumb, but you should see the point I’m making
