Jerry Jones was asked to compare this year’s Dallas Cowboys to the Super Bowl-winning dynasty of the 1990s but the owner was reluctant to do so.
If you need a reason as to how Jerry Jones successfully branded the Dallas Cowboys as America’s Team, you need not look further than the 1990s dynasty when the team captured a trio of Lombardi Trophies. But with the Cowboys now sitting at 11-4 in the 2021 season and vying for a big playoff run, fans have to be thinking about that period of time.
The big question is if Jones and the rest of the front office feel the same about this iteration of the ‘Boys.
Well, the team owner was asked about it during one of his routine radio appearances on Friday but Jones was “reluctant” to say that this was the best Cowboys team since the dominant decade. He, however, had a good reason for that and remained wholly confident in his team.
Cowboys: Jerry Jones doesn’t want to ‘jinx’ team with 1990’s comparison
Okay, so maybe Jerry Jones actually does think this year’s iteration of his beloved Dallas Cowboys is on-par or the best thing since the 1990s — he’s just trying not to jinx the team as they try to make a run this year.
From everything we’ve seen, though, Jones has every reason to be optimistic about what he’s seen from the 2021 squad.
Under Dan Quinn, the defense has made tremendous strides, particularly with the monster years from Micah Parsons and Trevon Diggs. Moreover, with the offense getting healthy, most notably quarterback Dak Prescott, that side of the ball can be absolutely lethal, something the Washington Football Team can attest to.
Will it result in a Super Bowl, something the 1990s teams accomplished three times? We don’t know, but it might be their best chance since the dynasty was at its peak.
