America's Game: The 1995 Dallas Cowboys | Super Bowl XXX

Dominance in the NFL starts at the very top. There have been only five NFL dynasties during the Super Bowl era -- four of them were forged by the vision of a single head coach. The 1995 Dallas Cowboys were the exception. They won their third world championship of the 1990s under new leadership in Barry Switzer. Despite being without Jimmy Johnson, who had led the Cowboys to two Lombardi Trophies, and being burdened with free-agent losses, off-the-field distractions, and injuries, Dallas was determined to capture its third title in four years. The Cowboys overcame these obstacles thanks largely to the stellar play of "the Triplets" -- Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin -- and the acquisition of a fourth superstar, All-Pro cornerback Deion Sanders. Still, it was the player opposite Sanders who made the biggest impact in Super Bowl XXX. Cornerback Larry Brown became one of the unlikeliest MVPs in Super Bowl history, intercepting two passes in a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. At last, Dallas was a dynasty. Join NFL Films as they retell the story of the '95 Cowboys. America's Game uses exclusive interviews with Brown, Darren Woodson, Rich Dalrymple, and Daryl Johnston to reminisce about their wild ride to a third title in four years.

  1. I know it chaps Jerry Jones ass that the Cowboys have tanked ever since Jimmy Johnson's players left. Jerry Jones will never deliver the Cowboys another Super Bowl. That dynasty was all Jimmy Johnson building that team.

  2. If one relies on documented fact rather than perception… the 1995 Dallas Cowboys roster was composed of 27 players that never played a down for Jimmy Johnson. This included future Hall of Famers Deion Sanders and Larry Allen. Of their 4 juggernaut squads (e.g., 1992-1995), the 1995 Cowboys scored the most points, committed the least number of penalties, and gave up the least number of sacks. In 1995, Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith had their greatest seasons, and the roster fielded more HOF's than the 1992, 1993, and 1994 squads. The 1995 Cowboys OL set the NFL record for most combined Pro Bowl appearances (e.g., 29 Pro Bowl appearances) and the 3 best records ever for an NFL head coach in his first 3 seasons belong to George Seifert 38-10, Chuck Knox 34-8, and yes, Barry Switzer 34-14. It's important to note that unlike Johnson's last 3 years in Dallas (e.g., 1991-1993), Switzer had to contend with the salary cap which meant that the 1994-1996 Cowboys had to rely heavily on their starting 22. One could make a strong argument for the 1995 Cowboys fielding the best starting 22 of their dominant 4 year run.

  3. This will be the last time the Cowboys will win a Super Bowl title. Jerry Jones is full of crap In his stupid childish nonsense ego for letting go Jimmy Johnson After back to back Super Bowl titles. If Jimmy Johnson stayed with the Cowboys Cowboys would have win another 3rd straight Super Bowl title 1994 before Another 1995 title

  4. Switzer…. Oklahoma coach and winner of THREE National Championships get ZERO credit and total blame in his time with Dallas. How convenient for all involved to have good old Barry to blame for EVERY SINGLE shortcoming.
    Then when they win the SB over Pittsburgh in '95… absolutely ZERO credit or acknowledgment.
    Again… how convenient.
    Barry was a better recruiter than he was a coach at OU during the 70s + 80s but he had leadership abilities that are forever shunned and overlooked. It's a shame. Had he coached at USC, Notre Dame, OhioSt etc he'd be considered an all time legend. But as usual Oklahoma gets shunned by the rest of the nation.
    If Texas ever decides to break away from the union and a few other states besides Oklahoma (Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Missouri, New Mexico, Arizona, The Carolinas, Georgia, North Florida, Nebraska, Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia all decide to join… the rest of you city slicker, homosexual, welfare line, "identifying as an "IT" MFers are going to have one HELLUVA a problem on your Libtard, Satan Worshipping, Hollywood Celebrity worshipping, Billie Eyebrows listening, Illuminati worshipping, Buttplug wearing asses.
    Time for a good old country style ASS STOMPING. It will happen.
