Yeah, Jerry's conversation with Callahan probably went something like this,
Jerry: "Bill, free agency and the draft are coming up. We can use our top pick to trade back, and pick up some extra picks so we can fix this OL, or we can go out to the NFL Goodwill and pick up a guard from a team who refuses to re-sign him because they can do better, and pick up another guard from a bad team who can't even start for this bad team. You have a week to think about it.
Callahan: "Mr. Jones, give me the scabs from other teams, and while you're at it, don't bother getting me a center either, Costa will do just fine, I can coach him up and we also have Woicek. Just remember Mr. Jones, Costa beat out Gurode last year. Go ahead and spend all you can on cornerbacks, having new CBs will make our OL better.
I'm willing ot bet the conversation went something like this,
Jerry: Bill, we hear you're a pretty good OL coach, so here take these guys we found at the salvation army, make them pro bowlers, and while you're added, take T-Rex over there and make him better than Mangold. Now Bill there's no discussing it, I'm going to use all my resources to make a big splash, because that's how I roll.
Bill: Yes sir Mr. Jones.....
