Taking T New over K Williams was all Jerry and not BP. No 3-4 Front Seven for BP in that draft.
Trading a 1 for a 2 and future 1 is classic Jimmy Johson think that Jerry loves. Not only that, BP does not have a history of wheeling dealing. Again, no 3-4 Front Seven for BP in that draft either.
Two years straight where BP get nothing. Nice level of control huh?
With that said, the Cowboys stated rational of Jones being as good as Jackson is true but given BP likes big backs makes you wonder what BP would have done without Jerry.
My read, Jones was so proud of himself after that trade that he beemed. I saw ESPN too. It was like back in the Jimmy Johson hey days.
Jones + Spears may end up being better than Jackson but right now..... ug.
Regardless, I am pointing this out not to dispute the trade bad or good but to state CLEARLY that BP was not in control of the draft or draft process until 2005.
On me and Madden, never played it. I like to think out of the box to solve big problem. Incremental thinking never works. Cowboys have some good players that need a new system and we should avoid losing them to FA by trading them.
So, anyway. I argue cuz you guys like to pretend you are GMs. You are not. Its a blog!! Have fun. This is where wild ideas actually have a chance of seeding a GM's mind.
