given my vivid imagination, i really didn't need this...
That's very possible.
You look around at the landscape and there are lots of teams out there that have failed miserably with choosing a "real football guy" and then for whatever reason the whole thing crashed & burned.
Look at Cleveland. Mike Holmgren is the "poster child" of "real football guy". Failure.
Remember Tom Donahoe? The guy had a sterling reputation as a master football team builder. The Buffalo Bills give him everything to rebuild the team. And what happens? We know what happened.
Yes on the pitch Troy was one of if not the best quarterback in our history hes loved etc etc but can he run a football team and what happens to his legacy if it all goes balls up?
Am I the only one who keeps thinking LAFLEUR? I know--his back, but I don't know that any former player could be a good GM.
Interesting how? You mean like "entertaining"?
He was a terrific hockey player though.
I love troy and grew up in the 90's and would love nothing more than for troy to be here again. But it's not happening. It's a pipe dream.
Interesting as in "potentially successful."
Personally, if we are speculating on this, i would prefer Troy as team president.
This would essentially stabilize the franchise, giving it a new face if you will. Then a proper search could begin for a GM/personnel director or whatever title they might assign.
It's a dream, but a nice dream.
Wow ......... I have heard everything now.
What makes troy qualified to be gm? We already have a hc who wasn't qualified and a gm who isn't qualified. Why add another?
I don't know about that at all. He makes $1 million a year as a commentator.
Like Elway in Denver.
Jerrah offers Troy a small piece of the team if Aikman likes it and does well?
Exactly, that's why i like the team president role better (team president/vice-president/executive director whatever..), a true personnel guy would still have to come on board.
Hahaha so Jerry "isn't qualified" to be a GM after 25 years of owning a team and 20 years of being a GM... but Troy is more than qualified! He was a great QB and he makes astute observations on the TV!
This board's freaking hilarious.
I could completely see that scenario unfolding under that circumstance. One thing is clear in my mind. Having Troy in a front of fix exposition would be huge for the team. Someone else mentioned MichaeI Irvin. I could easily see him as a sideline influence within the coaching ranks.
Do you have any brighter ideas that might work under the watchful eye of the venerable Jerry Jones? I'm thinking within the confines of present day reality. Jerry would immediately trust Troy. That is a key piece to avoiding the meddling potential for any GM under Jerry.
I have been thinking of him ever since this nonsense started.
I'm willing to find out. Troy is a high IQ guy. The potential is there.
You're probably right. I'm going to enjoy this dream though for a little bit while the air is still parched with possibility.
