Past, present, and future

Posted: February 25, 2009 in NFL, offseason
Today is the anniversary that Jerry Jones bought the Cowboys.  It’s kinda surreal that this man released the iconic Landry, dealt Herschel Walker, drafted Aikman, and won 3 Super Bowls in 4 years. 

That’s insane.  Just as insane as no playoff win since 1996.  Sure Jones can be a bit extreme, but who exactly will fire Jones?  He is the owner/GM.  Usually the owner fires the GM.  So..that’s out.

In other news, the Bucs are either very smart or very stupid.  They have cut vets, lots of them.

  Brooks is an 11-time Pro Bowler and a potential Hall of Famer. Wide receivers Joey GallowayIke Hilliard, halfback Warrick Dunn and linebacker Cato June were also released.

It’s kinda crazy.  That’s alot of talent, but it is aging so that’s understandable.  Stank-0 guesses that the Bucs are completely trying to reconstitute the team to compete in the NASCAR division. 

The Chiefs have cleaned house as well

Three oft-injured veterans who hardly played last season were cut loose on Tuesday by the Kansas City Chiefs: linebacker Donnie Edwards, quarterback Damon Huard and cornerback Patrick Surtain.

It needed to be done.  They didn’t play at all last season, when the Chiefs went 2-14.  Surtain is gettin old, but Edwards?  Son was nice.  Keep him even if he’s injured and restructure his deal.

The Chiefs are startin to acquire cap space.
