it's easy to sit there and slap the packers and seahawks on the back and talk about what well oiled machines those orgs are now. that's because you're looking at the final product and aren't paying any attention to the legwork that it took to get there.
that's because you aren't a fan of those franchises and you didn't have to sit through, say, the four straight losing seasons seattle had prior to 2012. or the two straight non-winning seasons at the beginning of ted thompson's tenure. or the relatively long stretch of mediocrity in baltimore when ozzie newsome was moved up to GM and the ravens didn't win a playoff game for six years and had three losing seasons in that stretch.
Both are gradually changing the way that they do business. I even read an article about the Cowboys that said as much. And, It's kind of telling that some keep conveniently skipping over the Seahawks. You know why? Because obtaining Hardy, particularly on a team friendly deal, is arguably a smart fooball move.
This thread is primarily about Hardy, not a crucification of the Bucs and Boys management.
i'm just saying man there are a billion different ways you could argue that other than to say "well jerruh and the glazers have won super bowls" as if it hands some kind of credence to whatever asinine point njpanthers was trying to make.
if two of the three owners he's trying to prop up are just lol then that's somewhat self-defeating. nobody in their right mind is going to say the seahawks are badly run.
that'd be like me saying "oh yeah i had a great day today. someone ran over me with their truck and i got mugged but i found a penny"
I would weep tears of joy if Jerry Richardson and Jerry jones swapped franchises. But to be fair there are probably about 28 other owners who would make weep tears of joy if they switched frsnchises with the big cat.
Kind of ironic how a franchise that preaches building through the draff and through the defensive line have now let both Julius Peppers and Greg Hardy in their primes walk for free.
go look up what irony is in a dictionary first
you may note that i didn't say that jerry richardson was a better owner than jerry jones or the glazers so i'll ignore your straw man bullshit. the bucs were one pump chumps in 2002 and haven't won a playoff game since. dallas hasn't won a super bowl since the very beginning of the salary cap era and has won two playoff games since 1996.
