Funny. Clearly your not a Cowboy fan so it clouds your thoughts. Pretty hard to determine a players potential before they take a snap in the NFL. With that its pretty strong to say they blew the pick. If in the next few years Elliott is a top 5 RB and returns the offense to 2014 form its hardly blowing it. Ramsey looks to be a great player too. But Dallas needed to put a top RB behind that OL before contracts split it up as much as a top DB. The RB helps crown the OL, reduces the QB hits and frees up the passing game. Ramsey may not have as big an impact in Jacksonville as Elliott will have in Dallas. We will see.........
It's no secret that every NFL head coach has a different style. Some like to yell. Some are calm. Some are geniuses. Others are clueless (cough, Marty Mornhinweg, Art Shell, sneeze).
I thought it would be interesting to see how each coach reacts coming off a loss as a favorite - both as a favorite and an underdog in the next contest.
The results were pretty remarkable. For example, Joe Gibbs (not listed), is 2-8 against the spread after losing as a favorite. He's a Hall-of-Fame coach, but perhaps Gibbs should have bought a couple of Herm Edwards' motivational DVDs.
On second thought, after looking at Edwards' records, maybe that's not such a good idea.
