On another note, Nicklas Backstrom is amazingly good.
Meanwhile, in hockey the other night, the Washington Capitals' Eric Belanger gets hit with a stick, loses EIGHT teeth, has an instant root canal in the locker room, comes back out and PLAYS and never says boo.
So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!
The pre-Jim Irsay and Bill Polian era is so full of mistakes, so I'll go with the Manning-era Colts.
- Trading a 1st and 4th rounder for the chance to draft Tony Ugoh
- Laying down vs. the Jets in 2009 when we could've had a perfect season
- Keeping Ryan Lilja instead of Jake Scott when both were free agents
Never getting Marino a legitimate RB.
Keeping Dave Wannstache as long as we did.
Hiring Saban to replace him instead of Jim Bates
Jason Allen - in all fairness we've failed him as much as he's failed as a player.
Hiring Cam Cameron
Ted Ginn Family.
Taking a QB in the second round for 5 straight years, only one of which has panned out to anything for us. (A.J. Feeley, Culpepper, John Beck, Chad Henne (yay!), Pat White)
-Joey Galloway -- (Although we had karma coming for robbing the Vikings blind) --
No, I think Joey Galloway's post Cowboys career shows the mistake was not acquiring him, but what was done with him as a Cowboy. Its generally not a coincidence that Galloway had four pro bowl seasons...... half of which came before he was a Dallas Cowboy and the other half of which came after he was a Dallas Cowboy.
All time mistake: Letting Bill Polian go.
2nd all time mistake: Hiring Tom Donahoe.
2000: Drafting Erik Flowers in the first round. Actually outside of Sammy Morris the entire 2000 draft in itself.
2002: Drafting Mike Williams.... "Nuff said"
2003: Drafting Willis McGahee in the first round.
2004: Not trading up in the first round for a real quarterback, settling again...
2005: Trading up for Losman in 2004.
2006: Drafting Donte Whitner, and passing on Jay Cutler and Haloti Ngata. Then trading up for John McCargo :roll:
2009: Drafting Aaron Maybin Period.
2010: Passing on Jimmy Clausen twice?? Although Locker next year may make actually make this a smart move...
