A Sound of Thunder

A butterfly crushed on a muddy boot that was never supposed to touch the ground.

Ripples never come back

Apologies for the literary license, started this on a logy SUN. In no particular order:

1) Passing on Steven Jackson

Culprit – The Tuna
Mitigating circumstance – tender knee at Combine
What wasJulius Jones, MBIII
What wasn’t – 6 years of 1000+ yds, durable, dependable runner who could get yards outside or between the tackles

2) The 3-4 Defense

Culprit – The Tuna, WP
What was – Too many $#@&*GD LB Draft picks, D Ware
What wasn’t – Mike Zimmer’s Top-rated D

3) The Roy Williams trade

Culprit – JJ
What was – One of the best blocking WR’s of the modern game, 3 years of undeveloped chemistry
What wasn’t – The ‘lost Draft’ of ’09. More Knock-on Effects than can be reasonably listed

4) UDFA Bonanza – Tony Romo, Miles Austin

Credit – JJ, S Payton, Jason Garrett’s Dad
What was – That magic of unexpected discovery
What wasn’t – an endless parade of stiffs behind C for my once-proud franchise

5) Drafting Anthony Spencer(couldn’t help tossing out a little red meat)

Culprit – Sta-Puff MM
What is - $#@&* $8.8MM Franchise Tag
What isn’t – any other Defender in that draft, all of whom would automatically levitate up to the the RoH after their Rookie season

I could go on all day…feel free to on your own, anyone can play
