Personally, I don't care how talented a guy is, if he has character issues then I don't want him. You can't count on him to be there when you need him. They are more trouble than they are worth. I would much rather stock my team with high character guys (as Parcells has done this year) who maybe don't have quite as much talent as those others and I will win a championship with them.
When was the last time a team with more than couple of low character players won the SB?
It was probably us in the early 90s with Irvin and his group of fellow druggies (Nate, Big-E, Leon, Holmes, etc.) and of course, "Mr. Ego" himself, meIon $ander$. But we also had more than our share of very high character guys on that team (Aikman, Emmitt, Moose, Woodson, Tolbert, Bates, etc..).
Captain Nathan Brittles: "Only the man who commands can be blamed. It rests on me... mission failure!"
"Jerry Jones is a billionaire fan who bought his own team for the express purpose of buying his way into the game. He wants to hang out with the players, stand in front of the cameras, be the face of the team (yech), make personnel moves as if this were a video game, and more than anything else, be seen as the guy who made it all happen."
