If Jerry Jones had let Jimmy Johnson coach, how many more Super Bowls would they have won?

The Dallas Cowboys won Super Bowl 27 and Super Bowl 28 with Johnson and Jones.

If Jones had not let his ego get in the way, how many more Super Bowls? All the way to Super Bowl 31? 32? 33? 

Poor Jim Kelly, Steve Young, Brett Favre and John Elway. 

Oh god. Not this again. Incoming is a bunch of inaccurate takes. 

Jerry did let Jimmy coach. Jimmy just wanted out of Dallas. Which is why he had blatant insubordination as well as tampering. Even after all that, Jerry offered him a raise to stay. 

 

Jimmy had literally written down the day he would quit when he was hired. He was always going to be a short term coach.

Those Boys. I have never, ever saw so much talent gathered in such a short amount of time. That Cowboys squad went from awful to historical good in the blink of an eye. Plus it was pretty cool to see old vets like Jim Jeffcoat and Bill Bates suffer through horrid seasons then later enjoy SB success. 

Who hits on that many draft picks? They won the lottery every April.

Yeah you did. Bills from 1984 to 1987 got Jim Kelly, Darryl Talley, Andre Reed, Will Wolford, Kent Hull, Nate Odomes, Cornelius Bennet, Shane Conlan, and Bruce Smith. 

They didn't win anything, but those Bills teams were just as stacked. :)

"just as stacked"

Might be a tad bit of hyperbole since they lost to every team in our division aside from the Eagles (and cardinals, but I just want to make fun of the Eagles)

Buffalo was stacked but not stacked enough to not lose 4 consecutive back to back to back to back SUPER BOWL LOSES (x4).

QB: Troy Aikman. 

RB: Emmitt Smith.

FB: Moose Johnson. 

WR: Michael Irvin. 

TE: Jay Novacek

(Great wall of Dallas, below)

LT: Mark Tuinei.

LG: Nate Newton. 

C: Mark Stepnoski. 

RG: Derek Kennard

RG/RT: Larry Allen.

RT: Erik Williams (All-Time great OT before tragic car accident). 

(Great wall 🧱 of Dallas, above).

SS: Darren Woodson. 

CB: Deion Sandes. 

CB: Larry Brown (SB MVP). 

MLB: Robert Jones. 

DE: Tony Tolbert. 

DT: Leon Lett.

DT: Russell Maryland. 

DE: Charles Haley. 

I couldn't even mention WR Alvin Harper because unlike these 19 players mentioned above Harper never had an All-Pro, Pro Bowl and/or SB MVP (as the 19 players above did).

That Dallas Cowboys team was 10x more stacked than Buffalo which is why they beat the Bills during the SB by scores of 30-13 (17 points) and destroyed them 52-17 (35 points) ala embarrassed Buffalo by 52 combined throughout both SBs. 

Talent wise? 🦬 couldn't hold 🤠 jockstrap. 

PS: If not for those Cowboys of the early to mid 1990s? There wouldn't be an NFL Salary Cap Today (they changed the league/game forever).

I don't think Jimmy was beating SF with Deion Sanders in 1994.

He wins in 1995 like Barry and maybe he gets to the NFCCG in 1996 (but loses)

He's a way better coach than Switzer, but his team ran out of steam. Staying at a dominant level for 4 years is a good thing.

 

FYI the actual truth is that Jerrah's ego was a big reason Jimmy left. Jimmy did talk to another team about what they would give him because Jerry was being cheap and he thought he was worth more.  It was a relationship where both sides broke it apart but trying to make Jerry blameless is laughable.

Jerrys ego and the extend he screwed up badly is he got completely ish faced and tried to join the coaches dinner. When Jimmy kicked him out, he grabbed a couple reporters and declared, famously, that 500 coaches could win with that roster. 

He didnt cheap out on Jimmy. Jimmy had the largest coaches contract in the NFL and Jerry even offered him a raise.
