We all know that the QB position is held to a higher standard with Dallas Cowboys fan, but the next time our QB (doesn't matter who it is) has a bad game, think of Don Meredith. In 1968 he suffered a broken nose, broken ribs, punctured lung, an pnmonia (sp?). Before one game he left the hospital (with the broken ribs, punctured lung, and pnmonia) to play a game. THe cowboys lost and the fans and media blamed Meredith. He nearly died after the game due to fluids seaping (sp?) into his lung. He retired after that season because he couldn't take it anymore. The point is we, as fans, almost ALWAYS blame the QB when the team loses despited the fact that it's almost NEVER actually the QBs fault. One of the greatest QBs in Cowboys history showed toughness you will NEVER see again for as long as we live, yet he was booed and blamed for the TEAM's poor play. We owe it to these players (past, present, and future) to LEARN and UNDERSTAND the game so that we don't blindly and ignorantly blame the QB everytime the team plays poorly. And I'm referring to EVERYONE. Even those that are comfortable with their knowledge of the game can learn and understand the game BETTER. Those guys don't MEAN to play poorly anyway. Even Quincy Carter worked his arse off. Yes, he sucked, but he deserved a little respect for the hard work he put into his profession. Troy Aikman, Chad Hutchinson, Gary Hogeboom, etc... they ALL deserve our RESPECT for the effort they put on the field. 3 and a half decades late, but here's to you, Dandy Don.
