Hey I believe you...just never heard it before. Interesting tidbit that I did not know. Very interesting.
The sad thing is if Kurt had landed here Romo may have never been discovered. I don't believe Warner would have been as bad as Testaverde and Bledsoe at all.
Very accurate statement...
Exactly. I love Kurt Warner, but Romo for the long term is much better than Warner for the short term.
The oh, wait... ?
Don't worry about it Hos, it was just my way of saying that Jerry does have a good idea from time to time, and that he should not be viewed based only upon what he has done wrong, but what he has done right. In the Warner v. Vinny thing- I wish Jerry HAD intervened.
Sometimes we blame Jerry whether it was actually his doing or not. We assume it must be Jerry's fault when things go wrong, and assume it must be in-spite of Jerry when things go right.
Looking back at it though- Warner would have been a great hire.
It's all Jerry's fault, every time. We hear it constantly here.
Don't count me as a Jerry Apologist, I'm not. I take my shots too.
Instead, just call me a realist.
Okay. Just caught me on a Monday and I didn't catch the drift.
Possibly. Or we would have had a very, very good player behind Warner. We haven't had that since the days of Danny White (I liked Kosar though) waiting in the wings.
Danny had to wait a really long time before he became starter, but we weren't disappointed.
Of course, it is all "what if" hypothetical.
What I've always liked about Jimmy was his brashness and the team's ability to live up to it.
I like Rex Ryan's brashness, but his defense let us down so much, I'd rather he don't say nothing until they can be the reason why the team won vs inspite of.
I wish Jason Garrett had some brashness, tho. He's like the confident professor who is always calm cool, and collected. It would be nice if said something that wasn't always the PC thing to say.
The difference is that Jimmy could back his team without denigrating the opposition or stooping to insults. Ryan failed that test when he mocked "Megatron" unnecessarily.
Buddy Ryan's big fat butt takes issue with this.
Well he failed, because his defense failed to contain Megatron. Had they held him in check, then people would've blown it off as that's just Rob. They didn't and that was the 1st egg of the omelete that was about to get put on his face throughout the season.
That was a statement of fact. It also inspired Buddy to take action.
It was a "stoop to insult" that he "never" did.
"The asthma field is over there." Next you'll tell me there really was an asthma field just like Buddy really did have a fat butt.
Is there a link to that story?
Just to my previous posts. The media was never aware of it.
I never get tired of reading or listening to that story...so awesome.
Jimmy's call to the Galloway show .... I heard it live. It was a crazy evening during a great time.
I love this old story about Jimmy, but in my opinion Jimmy's greatest line was less publicized.
It was when he told Tod Christenson at halftime of SB 27 "We aren't Houston!"
He said it in response to a question Tod asked: Whether he discussed with his team that Buffalo was a comeback team as evidenced by their historic comeback against Houston a few weeks before in the playoffs.
That line sent chills down my spine. It's one of my proudest moments as a Cowboy fan!
