I wish we had some of that today but as good as that offense was, the defense was twice as bad. Probably even worse than today's defense.
Many players were beneficiaries of a great offensive line. The Skins of the late 80's and Cowboys of early 90's were some of the best lines ever. Aikman was basically Trent Green. Emmit Smith, Priest Holmes.
