I remember...Not sure how many people remember this about Irvin but his Dallas career started in decidedly pedestrian average. He battled some injuries but he obviously also played on some REAL crap Dallas teams in seasons 1-3 ('88 to '90), where the QB play was less than stellar. Then in year 4, he sort of muddled his way through the first half or so of the season where he mixed in the occasion good game with a bunch of duds. Then in late November, the light switch literally came on and he lit up Darrell Green and the defending champs in RFK leading Dallas to an upset. THat was the start of a 5-game stretch to finish the regular season where Irvin was absolutely dominant as Dallas went 5-0 to make the playoffs. The rest is history.
