Jimmy Johnson & Buddy Ryan Go At It In 1989
The Philadelphia Eagles 34-7 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night brings back some memories of the long standing rivalry.
For instance, back in 1989, the Eagles and Cowboys played each other on thanksgiving Day, and reports surfaced that Eagles’ coach Buddy Ryan place bounties on several Cowboys’ players, including quarterback Troy Aikman, and kicker Luis Zendejas.
Needless to say, Cowboys’ coach Jimmy Johnson wasn’t very happy about it.
This video is from a 1989 “NFL Today” show, on CBS, where Brent Musberger, Irv Cross, and Will McDonough talk about the incident, and Ryan and Johnson talk trash to/about one another.
