None of those were draft day trades that's what I was referring to. Montana had an injury and because SF had Steve Young they traded Montana. They would have never made that trade had they not had Young. KC traded Jared Allen and got worse because of it. They traded a proven player for unproven players in the draft.
They later traded Tony Gonzales to Atlanta for a #2 that didn't improve them but both trades improved Minn and Atlanta. As for the Carolina trade I don't remember that one but it obviously worked out better for SF than it did Carolina. KC has done what a lot of fans want the Cowboys to do and that's trade proven players for draft picks and look where it's left them. Look where it's left the teams they traded with...case closed!
