How about Derek Ross? Had something like 5 or 6 picks his rookie year and I was SURE we had finally found a corner who could play the ball. I was sick of Mario Edward's. Of course, Ross disappeared after that rookie year for who knows why.

A really sad one was that linebacker Holloman, least I think that was his name. Looked like he had a good future ahead of him.

He got on Parcells shit list. He had ball skills for sure.

I can’t quite remember what he did, but he definitely did something multiple times that landed him in the dog house.

It was the way he held the ball on kick returns, which Parcells had bitched at him for prior to the fake he fumbled on two kick returns. That’s what did it.

Ah I remember Derek Ross. Yeah like 5 picks rookie season but washed out of the league real quick.

Parcels shit list…. I’ll never forgive him for trading away Antonio Bryant. Loved that receiver

The Goodrich, Kareem Lattimore, and Edwards draft….. we were so desperate for trying to find a cornerback.

Remember the days of thinking we “stole” one with Hutchinson (he woulda been a first rounder had he stayed in college!) and then Drew Henson. Troy Aikman told Jerry “you know what you need to do” after watching a throwing session. Plus he started over Tom Brady at Michigan
Yes, those days were terrible.

And yet we should be reminded of the miracles that both Tony Romo and Dak Prescott have been.

Throwing a sweaty towel in Parcells' face was never conducive to a long career with the Tuna

Damn. I think I have lost my Schmitty Bryant masterpiece.

It was on an old Photobucket account and now it is gone.

:sad
