I've always thought this too. The talent erosion that Campones (the Campo, Jones hybrid) had created was so deep that it has taken BP a full three years to get it anywhere close to a winning team. Most folks don't realize how devoid of talent those 00, 01, 02 teams were until they actually check out the rosters. By 2002, I had lost all hope, and I think it had gotten so bad that Jerry actually took a step back and kind of went, "What have I done here?" As we learned with the Parcells hiring, when Jerry goes big, he really goes big. That's why I'm so worried about Parcells' successor. Jerry doesn't have that biblical fear that his Cowboys will fall into disrepair if he makes a wrong decision after BP retires. When Jimmy left, his decisions were incresingly riskier, to the point where he was just flat out reaching. He might have picked up on his past mistakes (hell, he hired Parcells), but something tells me after Bill he'll be looking for some kind of long term answer, and that could spell 'project'... or in other words, 'Dave Campo pt. 2.' I hope I'm wrong. Dead wrong.
