Without him we DO NOT win that Superbowl. That deserves a ton of props from us regardless of him leaving for Dallas.
Actually yeah, even without him we would have won that Super Bowl. I know I am in the minority here, but honestly I think Deion got by on name value alone that year. The reason we were so dominant on D was that Deion basically took half the field, leaving Hanks, McDonald, and Davis to cover the rest. Teams were so scared to throw Deion's way, so they often threw into double coverage instead.
But the one game that the QB did decide to challenge Deion (I want to say It was the Bears, but don't quote me - but either way it was not a strong passing team) they made several completions against him. He looked out of position a few times and just slow to react at others. It was like he had gotten so used to people not throwing his way, he had gotten lazy.
