Why did Roger Staubach fall to the 10th round in the NFL draft? He had a professional handicap. And it was immovable. He was military.
Ignore all those trumped-up reasons to say no. In the end, it will be easier for Bill Parcells to go marching back into the game than to turn down the chance to coach the Saints.
Maybe it was just a bad day. Maybe they'll be back in all their dominating glory. But it's possible that whuppin' on Sunday is a sign that the Patriots' time has passed.
Sure, he has options after the Orange Bowl. He can write his own ticket straight to the NFL, in fact. But if the past is prologue, maybe that isn't the best way for Jim Harbaugh to go.
They've got it all. Your tired. Your poor. Your wretched refuse. (And those are just the fans.) Yes, it's time for a new 'America's Team' not called the Cowboys. Let's nationalize the Oakland Raiders.
Terrell Owens might be the big winner in the retirement of Bill Parcells, but who will coach the mercurial receiver now.
Terrell Owens isn't done, which means that some team will take a chance on him, hoping his ability trumps his attitude.
Winning has proven to be a distraction from the pain, both physical and personal, in Brett Favre's life.
Keyshawn Johnson and Warren Sapp have proven they can still talk the talk. But can they back it up?
Some games, no matter how bad, are just too compelling despite the disparity of talent on the field.
There's nothing memorable about all these forgettable pretenders who will quickly fade into mediocrity.
Another Thanksgiving means another day of games involving the Lions and Cowboys. Enough already.
