Longtime Cowboy fans: What was the mood in Dallas in 1989 when Jimmy Johnson dismantled the Cowboys?

and they went 1-15? Angry? Positive

Personally, I think that's what it's going to take in Cleveland. Tear it down to the ground, and re-build.

    Dallas fans were pissed because Jones drove out a head coach who had won back-to-back Super bowls in '92 and '93.

    Jackass Jones bought the team in 1989 and replaced iconic head coach Tom Landry with Johnson. Johnson took over a team in 1989 that was devoid of talent, a team that traded Herschel Walker prior to the start of the season and had a rookie QB in Troy Aikman.

    Johnson was in charge of all personnel decisions and turned that 1-15 club into a juggernaut, and Jones' ego couldn't take it so he canned a guy who was a close friend and former college teammate.

    Jones has been in charge of personnel decisions since 1993 and the team has steadily declined since then. Their last Super Bowl win came in 1995, right before Jones dismantled the team Johnson had built.

    Jones is white trash.

    How many super bowls did Landry go to in the 80's ? Landry deserved to be fired

    Jimmy Johnson didn't dismantle anything. He didn't have that authority. Jerry Jones dismantled the Landry regime. Johnson later quit because Jones wouldn't give him control of player personnel.

    the browns need more than that. Hire someone to fire everyone in the organization, then fire the person you hired, then fire yourself. thats how the browns will ever be good again. honestly just burn the city of cleveland to the ground, no one will give a **** anyway (including me, I live near cleveland) and re-locate the team to LA and change the name completely. and get a ******* logo while you're at it.

    Source(s): I hate the Browns with the burning passion of a thousand suns.
