Year after year I waited for someone to pick up the torch > Gale Gilbert > Bruce Mathison > Jeff Kemp > Kelly Stouffer > Dan Mcgwire > Stan Gelbaugh > Rick Mirer > John Friesz. (The worst was with getting my hopes up with Mcgwire and Mirer, these guys had to be good as first round picks! Mirer 2nd overall! )

They had some talented teams during those years doomed to failure being led by incompetent field generals. I still owe Warren Moon gratitude for breaking the curse, if only for a few years, in 1998.

Man I feel a smigget of your pain after hearing about your Seahawks experience man....I actually have nothing bad to say about the Seahawks man...I hope they can win a super-bowl for u sometime soon as long as the Dolphins aren't involved...lol

From the day Jimmy Johnson left to October 1, 2006, when Tony Romo took his first regular season snap...

no matter what you think of Tony Romo, he's fun to watch and is a true playmaker!

being a Dallas Cowboys fan has given me tons of greif, it's hard work...seems everyone loves to hate them!

The 1998 Vikings-Falcons Championship game, that loss haunted me for years but at least we lost to a very good 14-2 Falcons team and not a wild card team and I am not sure if the Vikings would have defeated the Broncos in the Superbowl due to the injuries we had to the defense in the Championship game
