    Greco was a locker room politician who also complained to some fans who repeated his stuff on message boards.

    If he had anything he would have been playing last year. Instead 2 rookies played ahead of him.

    Every team misses out on talent that they stash on a practice squad/release and then watch them go elsewhere and blow up.

    Danny Woodhead... You bet the Jets are kicking themselves over that one.
    Danny Amendola... Both the Cowboys AND the Eagles let him get away
    Wes Welker... Chargers and somewhat Dolphins as well.

    The list goes on and on. There were guys we liked, but there isn't really anyone that has really blown up that Spags leg go as far as I can remember, just bodies really.

    I never heard this. In fact, I heard the opposite, the guys and coaches regularly ate at his house, because Greco was a good guy and great cook. Seems odd that his former coach would trade for him if he was a cancer. Oh well. Softli told me directly that Greco's problem was that he was too nice of a guy, and not nasty enough to play on Sunday's, and he helped draft him.

    So Zygmunt and Shaw walk into a bar. Does Brooks serve them or tell them to find another bar? More importantly, what does Selassie's parrot say?

    "RuuuK, let it go, let it go..."

    But that is just my opinion.

    I'm going to go with your thoughts on this cause you said it much better than I could.
    The dysfunction was owned evenly across the board.
    The thing I want to know and it's behind the doors thing is if they were told they had to win or else. If they were did that change the plan? I know something changed and the lockout had nothing to do with that, every team was locked out.

    I know Stan K. was minority owner for years but was he looking for a reason to make his own hire as majority owner? That's why no slack was given?
    I was pissed about Knox getting the axe and I moved on so this is no biggie.

    What "dysfunction"?

    They got crushed by injuries.

    All the rest is loose change from under the sofa cushions.

    Other than reading WAY too much into what are REALLY small things, is there any ACTUAL evidence of a "dysfunction"?

    No matter how many times he hears me,,, Rasta has no interest in saying things like cuss words. He doesn't like angry sounds or bad vibes. His vocabulary is huge, but I just can't get him to act pissed,,,,,,,,,, yet.

    This macaw however, will stand in for Rasta in the meantime. So they walk into the bar, and......

    2-14 = massively injured season. (Including the most injured offense in the last decade.)

    Saying anything else requires one heck of a lot of overthinking. :cool:


    A: why didn't C win the 100 meter?
    B: broken leg
    A: lack of heart?
    B: he broke his leg
    A: or maybe he has a bitter conflict with his coach
    B: he. Broke. His. Leg.
    A: Perhaps they have some terrible impasse about training methods..
    B: you can't run with a broken leg.
    A: or, maybe he was just never that fast in the first place?

    Zygmunt walks into a bar with a duck on a leash.

    The bartender, an obvious Rams fan with a #39 jersey on, sees him. The bartender angrily shouts

    "hey! pigs are not allowed in this bar!"

    Zygmunt haughtily responds "that's not a pig! It's a DUCK."

    The bartender says

    "I was talking to the duck."

    Stu asked

    "2-14= function?"



    dysfunction [dɪsˈfʌŋkʃən]
    n
    1. (Medicine) Med any disturbance or abnormality in the function of an organ or part
    2. (esp of a family) failure to show the characteristics or fulfil the purposes accepted as normal or beneficial

    Meanwhile the 4th most injured team in the league won the Super Bowl

    Injuries impair the ability to do AS well as you can, they do not however dictate the futility of 2-14.

    As has been stated ALL teams were locked out , KNOWING that it would be a challenge to install such a complex offense is part and parcel of the HC's job but they went ahead, Devaney sez he saw the dysfunction from day ONE.
    THAT is no small thing, in fact the best year Alex Smith has had was due to Harbaugh removing the sight adjustments that confounded our QB and receivers so his QB wouldn't struggle like ours did.

    We've read it posited here that Spags deemed his team rebuilt and started filling roles with old guys cutting promising young players instead of continuing the rebuild.
    It is now and will continue to be my position that after three years a team SHOULD be rebuilt adequately that it isn't considered "brilliance " to trade down and down and down to acquire bodies because the roster is considered so devoid of talent. Rather given that pick the team in it's fourth year SHOULD be ready for the marquise player ,the icing on the cake ,not STILL be struggling to add the second layer and deferring picks to future years to further rebuild.

    IOW they should have been in the position Spags seems to think they were a year previous.
    There was plenty of dysfunction for those who see it to refer to, none of the people who see it differently than I do deserve to be disrespected for their disagreement.We can disagree agreeably,it's easy.

    I think this draft was amazing, we got young RB's to replace our aged backup ,backing up an aging star who together accounted for a lot of games lost to injury ( someone could have expected that) In fact I HEARD Gil Brant tell last night on Late Hits (XM Radio) that the longevity OF RB's was WHY the Cowboys decided to pick Randy White over Walter Payton,because there were at that time only two RB's in the league with five years experience still functioning at a high level one being Rocky Bleier and the other's name escapes me.

    The best friend a young QB can have is a great running game,I think Bradford is going to have a good friend this year a good young one, his "best friend" wasn't reliable last year, Gil Brant backs my belief that it was predictable. I think he has statistics.
