neither of these address my two central points.
Hurney and Fox had far more control over the team than Wade ever had in Dallas.
Point taken Fiz.
Too tired tonight to go back and look at every draft from Hurney. What I do know is he failed to draft a franchise QB (and he had opportunites at Ben, Flacco and even to get Brees as a free agent, all better than what we had), he failed to draft have decent DTs, he failed to find a 2nd receiver. He's failed at a lot of things. Instead of getting something for Peppers, Peppers walked. He wrote a check to Delhomme that could choke a horse and the deicsions on Peppers that lead to Delhomme, put us were we are now with absolutely no depth on the oline.
As far as the message it sends, maybe it should be, we want the best, not the good, not the want to be best, the best, and for that reason, Marty, you can either go back to salarly cap or you can leave, but, you do not get to judge talent anymore, and that, after all is his job on draft day.
