    They said on the Ticket they suspect the term might come from the Oregon system where it was featured, ie, ducks? Have webbed feat? I dunno.

    Sturm said he thought they just made the term up.

    Our offensive braintrust is not exactly top tier so there isn't much to wonder about here.

    Pretty sure it's completely made up.

    It was like when we used Lance Dunbar and everyone knew he was going to run some sort of a route. He sucked at picking up the blitz and was terrible at running the ball. So what exactly did it accomplish? Defenses knew exactly what he was going to do. We used him like a WR who lined up differently. Of course this coaching staff knows nothing but telegraphing 95% of what they are going to do ahead of time.

    Felix just seemed like he never really gave a damn. I want killers on the field, which is hard to find with these youngins these days.

    There was a lot of hype around both Jones and McFadden coming out of Arkansas. Knowing Jerral, that may have influenced the pick as well back then. McFadden at least patched together a halfway decent career but Jones kind of just faded into the sunset.

    I have no doubt that Jerry's love of Arkansas gave him an edge. I just never could understand the concept of taking a college change of pace back in the first round.

    Jerry didn’t think enough of McFadden to draft him. Even after he landed on the team he still took a back seat to other running backs. He didn’t protect him from getting cut loose from the team when the time was right. I don’t have a memory that Jones catered to Arkansas players at all. Very few players from Arkansas has been on the Cowboys roster since Jones tenure.

    Yeah, the whole line of thinking that Jerry is infatuated with Arkansas is lazy and retarded.
