I'm Past Football Hero Worship

. . . but obviously Aikman, Irvin and Smith were great. But the intangible factor that made them relate to the fans is that they were drafted by the Cowboys and spent their careers with Dallas. That day in the NFL has come and gone. Today we have Bledsoe at quarterback (free agent from Buffalo by way of New England), Keyshawn Johnson at receiver (from Tampa Bay by way of the Jets), Terry Glenn at receiver (from Green Bay by way of New England). Last year it was retreads Testaverde at QB and Eddie George at RB. The way players move around today, in and out of different teams and uniforms, I always appreciate Jerry Seinfeld's line: "When you really thinking about it, we are cheering for laundry".
