season in adversity Sundays NFC champi onship showdown at Can dlestick Park left no doubt about who is the best team in the league Dallas could have made the claim but a champion does not turnover the ball on its first three posses sions San Francisco earned every right to play in the Super Bowl and they more than likely will win against a good but over matched San Diego squad Despite the loss to the 49ers the Cowboys proved they arent just a team with a ton of tal ent They are also a team with plenty of char acter Great athletes alone cant win two Super Bowls and though Dallas proved it had the players and the will to win the past two years they had too much to overcome last Sunday San Francisco had every advantage going into the game They were at home on a soggy field that suits them just fine They had a revenge factor after two consecutive NFC championship Thomas Godley losses to the Cowboys Steve Young had a lega cy named Joe Montana to get off his back San Francisco had the entire offseason to sign players like Deion Sanders Ricky Jack son and Ken Norton all brought in specifically to stop the Cowboys offense Owner Eddie DeBartolo bet all his money on those players knowing he couldnt keep all those players next year under the salary cap The 49ers had been building its arsenal all year and Sunday it was time to put those weapons to use The first five minutes of the game couldnt have turned out much worse for the Cowboys Three straight turnovers and three ensuing 49cr touchdowns put Dallas in a painfully deep 210 hole The abyss was not unlike Dallas regular sea son Consider the distractions and ordeals facing the Cowboys this season First they lost their mastermind and one of the premier NFL coach es in Jimmy Johnson While Barry Switzer stepped in and for the most part used good sense by leaving things alone he ultimately failed to bring the same discipline that Johnson instilled in the team The Cowboys then lost several key players to free agency Kevin Gogan Tony Casillas Nor ton Thomas Everett and Jimmy Jones all went the to other teams leaving the Cowboys a bit less deep on defense Finally two Super Bowl runs took its toll Dallas was bruised and battered throughout the season Injuries were rampant There was Troy Aikmans concussions Novaceks strained an abominal muscle Nate Newtons sprained toe and Emmitt Smiths aggravated a hamstring The list went on Perhaps the biggest loss was AllPro tackle Eric Williams who didnt heed the dangers of drinking and driving and was hurt in a car wreck Still the Cowboys went 124 and made it to the longawaited rendezvous at Candlestick Experts tagged San Francisco a sevenpoint favorite and after Cowboys first three posses sion the line seemed safe Dallas could have sunk their heads at that point Spotting the potent 49ers three touch downs at home spells death to most teams But Aikman and Michael Irvin showed they werent about to concede when they hooked up for 43yard touchdown Moments later it appeared Dallas had life when it drove to the 49er 12yard line and was in position to cut the lead to seven But disappointment stmck again The Cowboy brain trust called a draw play to Emmitt on third and long What Jimmy Johnson was no doubt snickering when the play went for four yards and kicker Chris Boniol missed the easy field goal Even with that it was a 2414 game with less than a minute in the half Then Larry Brown did the unforgivable He let the best wide receiver in the league Jerry Rice get behind him for a 28yard touchdown In a game of critical plays that was the most critical Dallas rallied to 21 31 in the third mus tering all it could stay close There was hope In the end San Francisco was too good to let even the Cowboys come back from a 21point deficit Dallas went down valiantly That there was questionable officiating in the second half made little difference No one is arguing that the 49ers deserved to win The Cowboys put up as tough a fight as could be expected under the circumstances and thats all a fan can ask for in season of many ordeals Thomas Godley is sports editor for the New Braunfels Making the move 284A JV basketball roundup NEWBRAUNFELSJV RECORD

AP The day after the Dallas Cowboys sea son ended the toughest decision some players faced was whether 10 use cardboard boxes or plastic bags to clean out their lockers That was the choice for the few who showed up at Valley Ranch on Monday less than 24 hours after a 3828 loss to the San Francisco 49ers kepi them out of a Super Bowl for the first time in three years The only official purpose for stopping by the training facility was to take a seasonending physical and for most players it could wail For defensive lineman Charles Haley it wont be necessary it hes serious about his plans to retire His surprising postgame announcement and questions about off season plans were the main topics of conversation among the hand ful of players who showed up One excuse for the absences was that the team plane came back from California around midnight With no more games to prepare for there was little urgency in waking up The few who crawled out of bed came dressed comfortably in sweats and wasted little time getting in and out Only a few coaches were hanging around and if coach Barry Swiuer and owner Jerry Jones were there they didnt find any reason to visit the players area early Monday afternoon The result was silence so much that the spacious locker room thats usually filled with chatter wound up being filled with country music tunes being played in the equipment area And unless Jones has the type of turbulent offseason in 1995 as there was in 1994 the place may be empty for quite awhile Comal senior bowler qualifies for May national tournament By THOMAS GODLEY Sports
