Is Jason Garrett seeing similarities between current Cowboys and legendary Dallas teams of the 1990s?

FRISCO -- When Zack Martin's contract extension is eventually finalized, the Cowboys are expected to have their three All-Pro offensive linemen (Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick) signed through the 2023 season.

The unit is regarded as Dallas' best offensive line since the great groups they had in the early 1990s, some of the best the game has ever seen.

There are some other similarities to those teams that won three Super Bowls in four years. With Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith leading the way, those teams were also built around the running game.

Several of the key players during that time were also relatively young. Smith was 23 when Dallas won its first of three Lombardi Trophies in 1992. Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin were both 26. The Cowboys have gotten much younger this offseason.

But since there has been no sustained postseason success since that era, the comparisons should probably stop there.

Head coach Jason Garrett, who was a backup quarterback on two of those championship teams, was asked Tuesday if he sees some similarities between the youth and talent on the current roster and the great ones of the early 1990s.
