Now just wait one dadburn minute. To start, Cowboz GM still haven't learned the lesson from the 1960 Eagle victory. You still drafting the like of Quincy Carter, etc. Oh, BTW, "getting scrubs from the other teams" is Now called getting "seasoned veterans!"
There is no way you can compare what happened in 1960 to 2001 (the year Carter was drafted). There was no free agency, salary cap, or collective bargaining agreement then. The only way teams to build is through the draft or by trades.
Clint Murchison got his franchaise established, but not until after he got the patent for the Redskins fight song "Hail to the Redskins". Murchison threatened (Redskin owner) George Preston Marshall that he would not be able to play his fight song at Redskin games. At that time, Marshall basically had a radio empire throughout the southern states to broadcast Redskin games. The NFL wouldn't let the newly formed Cowboys participate in the college draft.
What happened instead was the NFL placed three players from each team for Landry, Brandt, and Schramm to select. Let me tell you something. Those scrubs were SCRUBS!
It wasn't like what happened with Carolina, Jacksonville, Cleveland, and Houston, where they were given unlimited cap, free agancy of veteran ballplayers, and an expansion draft where teams could purge themselves of high priced ballplayers to relieve their cap hit.
So to compare 1960 to the 1990s and beyond is rediculous.
The 1960 Cowboys are one of the worst teams of all time. So for Philly to win by only 2 points against this sad sack team is nothing to brag about.
