    Well, I don't necessarily agree with that, but my only point was that, "by NFL standards" 8 years is hardly a long time in between Super Bowl wins.

    Bravo. That has been a negative hallmark of this team. Keep them until they are unserviceable or untradable, because, gosh, we love them!

    Well, mens, love will not win games.

    I half admired teams that half a constant inflow/outflow of players.
    I love the teams who reload instead of start over. THIS is something that the fans half to understand too: A great player, even Ware and Witten, will some day descend to average and finally to scrub status. That is just the way nature is with bodies that take constant pounding and physical abuse.

    Learn to let go. Learn to welcome the young talent.

    That was one reason for the Cowboys early dynasty
    Tex was not afraid to trade players and got good draft picks for them.
    Craig Morton was flipped for either Too Tall or the Manster. Can't remember
    which one ...

    Our 90s dynasty was also based on a getting a surplus of early picks.

    It takes a great QB and a good coach. The Cowboys have half the equation since they are fortunate enough to have a great QB. To be fair to Garrett, he may turn out to be a great coach now that he is giving up control of the offense (hopefully :pray:). We should know next season.

    LOL. They are contenders every year. The only time they haven't made the playoffs in the last 10 years was when they lost Brady and went 11-5. They have lost more Super Bowls in the last 8 seasons than we have won playoff games in 16. I would say they have it figured out perfectly.

    Because there's no single secret ingredient to winning a Super Bowl.

    Putting in yourself to be in position to do so year after year is a hell of a start though.

    Cassel had a good season in KC his first year, I believe.

    I think it was actually better than his season as the Patriots QB.

    Oops, excuse me. It was his 2nd year in KC.

    No kidding.

    They've been in the conference championship like 5-6 times in the last 10 years or something ridiculous like that.

    Quite possibly the most intuitive post I have ever read on this site.

    Wow.. awesome post man. I feel the same exact way. Jerry is very loyal to "names" and Belichick is loyal to results. The Patriots have such a great system in place and when a player no longer fits that system they are out. It's nothing more than a business there and I can really appreciate that.
