Something Ive always been morbidly curious about...
the assertion that he was public enemy #1 has been stated as if there was obvious concrete evidence that no one could refute.
Im not oblivious that Im sure there were some words, but how did it escalate to him being the sole reason for implosion?. It always smelled of scapegoat to me.
The reason the 2008 season went down the tubes was
-Az blocking a punt in OT, breaking McBriars foot and putting tony romo out 2 games
- Garrett's picking of Brad Johnson when it was obvious he couldnt even through a 10yd lateral screen in preseason
- Tony's pick in Pittsburg
-2 80yd runs by baltimore in the 4th qtr.
- 44-6 debacle
I don't see how TO had more than a 5% hand in that sh--show
i would love for someone in the know to PM and give me some more specifics, but many locker rooms have had disfunctional relationships and still succeeded.
It seemed to be the beginning of excuses and scapegoating that continues to plaque the team
