Landry should have traded him to team like Green Bay for picks, but he didn't, and that caused the team to decline. We had the backs(Walker and Dorsett), receivers (Drew Pearson,Tony Hill), TE(D. Cosbie) etc., to win 3 superbowls. Roger took us there 3 times and Danny couldn't get us there once, and Landry's attempts to find a replacement bombed with Pelleur and Hogeboom.
I agree about Danny White, glad to finally hear someone call it like it is. Perhaps people's expectations have dropped since we've run through the likes of Quincy Carter, Ryan Leaf and Vinny Testaverde here. But Danny could never win the big game, and at least one of those losses can be pinned directly on him.
Of course, if this was Philadelphia he'd be a town hero and doing Chunky Soup commercials!
OK, sorry, that was a low blow.
