    I'm just tired of the religion-bashing on Daily Kos, and it galls me to see it cloaked in what is basically "it's bad for the game" rhetoric.

      I've known some powerful religious people in my life who spoke out for good, who served their community, who devoted their lives to making things better.

      I may not share their belief, but they share with me a love of mankind.   I have no problem with them.

      I reserve my criticism to those who cloak hate behind religious ideals.  :)

    •  Let him be a Staubach, then, not a Danny White (0+ / 0-)

      which dates me and reveals my team preferences as well as explaining how public a part of his game his church preference should be.

      •  Danny White many times (0+ / 0-)

        put up better stats then Roger the Dodger. They made the playoffs every season he was the starter for a majority of the regular season games, including 3 straight NFC Championship games. He even pulled a few games out of the fire himself just like Staubach.

        They just never got to the big game with old #11 at the helm like they did with #12. Staubach also retired from the game as the top-rated passer in league history.

          and Staubach. I like Romo, too ... kid's got a nice smile, pretty good arm (owns the Cowboys records now) and can run around in the pocket, or out of it. Gets busted up a lot, though.

          But there's just somethin' wrong about having your punter play QB.

            You could also say they had their QB punt. I had no problem with him playing all 4 downs.

            Do you happen to recall their '78 playoff game against Atlanta? A vicious hit concussed Staubach late in the first half and knocked him out of the game. A game they trailed 20-13 at halftime.

            Doomsday shutout the Falcons in the 2nd half, but they needed points to win. White led them to 2 TD drives and they won 27-20.

              we were training some Louisiana Army Reservists that year. Six weekends in a row, starting right after Thanksgiving....
