Happy Birthday Jimmy Johnson

Dallas Cowboys (1989–1993)

Happy Birthday to former Dallas Cowboys’ Head Coach Jimmy Johnson.

Johnson served as head coach of the Cowboys from 1989 through 1993.  He is one of only six men in NFL history—(including Vince Lombardi, Don Shula, Chuck Noll, Mike Shanahan, and Bill Belichick)—to coach consecutive Super Bowl winners, winning Super Bowl XXVII in 1992 and Super Bowl XXVIII in 1993. Although no head coach has won three consecutive Super Bowls, only one head coach has led his teams to three consecutive NFL championships on the field (Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers 1965–1967). Johnson led the Cowboys to a record of 10-1 in the regular season during the month of Dec. from 1991–1993, also leading to a playoff record of 7-1 in those years. Johnson also had a record of 24-1 when Running Back Emmitt Smith ran for 100+ yards in a regular season game, and 5-0 in the post season, setting the culture for winning and keeping the lead in those years from 1990-1993 winning 2 Super Bowls. Jimmy Johnson and Jerry Jones mutually agreed to split due largely to their inability to work together. After Lombardi retired from coaching the Packers, Shula, Noll (twice), Shanahan, and Belichick all tried and failed to pull off the “three-peat”.-Wikipedia
