This is a textbook Jimmy Johnson kind of day. Not saying it will work out or anything, but JJ didn't cut starters to send a message either, he always sent a message by cutting guys that were on the fringes. And I think fans overstate the importance of acting against "names." Those guys were still teammates and guys at the next locker over and that kind of thing. Empty lockers make an impression regardless. It's still guys losing their jobs and probably their shot at their childhood dream.
