    Before we crucify the Iggy draft pick...

    ....look at who was still out there at the same point in the draft.

    Not overwhelming me with players any better than him. As a matter of fact, a lot of the dudes taken after are already out of football.

    Shady McCoy, Phil Loadholt, not much more than that. So, in hindsight, he wasn't such a bad pick considering who else was still available.

    I think most wanted Animal Jr. there

    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    How in the heck did I not know that was Animal's son? I used to love the Road Warriors as a kid.

    Agreed. Even Laurinaitis, in a post draft interview, thought he was going to be a Steeler when he fell to the end of the first round.

    this might help you to let it go:


    Sources: Sean Lee to have surgery

    Updated: October 24, 2012,
    By Ed Werder and Todd Archer | ESPN.com

    Sean Lee's season is over.

    The Cowboys' inside linebacker will have surgery on his right big toe, according to sources, with a full recovery expected for 2013. The Cowboys feared Lee would need surgery but had held out a slim hope of a comeback but by late Tuesday, those hopes were extinguished.

    The Cowboys are deep at the linebacker position but defensive co-captain Sean Lee's contributions are irreplaceable, Dan Graziano writes. Blog

    Running back Felix Jones had a similar surgery in 2008 and has not had any issues with the toe since.

    Lee suffered the injury in the third quarter of Sunday's win at Carolina. A second MRI on Tuesday confirmed significant ligament damage. He has the most severe case of turf toe with a complete tear.

    Some players in the past have been able to play with milder cases of turf toe.

    The Cowboys view Lee as a long-time piece to the future of the team, but he has had trouble staying healthy. He almost had his 2011 season come to an end with a dislocated left wrist but managed to miss only one game and played the rest of the season with a cast. He missed two games in 2010 with a hamstring injury after coming in with a knee injury.

    Lee leads the Cowboys in tackles with 77 in the first six games, according to the coaches' film. He has two tackles for loss, eight quarterback pressures, one interception, two pass deflections and a forced fumble.

    I seem to remember a Jerry O., Bryan Hinkle, Jack Lambert, Jack Ham, Vrable...but maybe you meant with the current regime.
