I always thought it was the players and never the coach. With Jimmy Johnson, the Cowboys had no salary cap, pulled the collosal Walker trade, and drafted well. So, was it great coaching or great players. Bellichek sucks in Cleveland and then is great with the Patriots, or was it Brady to Moss. Then, Sean Payton calls an on-side kick in the SuperBowl and they beat the colts, from Brees, considered a reclamation project.

So, is it the coaches or the players. The Cowboys have once again some terrific players the last few years. Maybe it's the players that win and the coach that lose it ...

I just never thought Wade Phillips was a good head coach and I still can't get over when he pulled Flutie in favor of Rob Johnson in Buffalo that year after Flutie started all year and led the team to the playoffs.

His Dallas teams have severely underachieved given their talent level. I am a Giants fan and I'll admit that I still can't believe we beat Dallas in Dallas in the playoffs the year that we also beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl. It was a magical run, but Dallas was outplayed and outcoached that game. They just were not ready for the Giants and I blame the head coach for that.

High school football and soccer coach here.. I'll add my two pennies...

Players or coaches??? Ya need BOTH.. to have a successful season, program, dynasty, etc..

If the coaches do a good enough job teaching.. and the players buy in to what the coaches are teaching.. and the ENTIRE organization is all working in the same direction.. you will see success. But if one of those factors are missing.. problems can and will arrise. Just my humble opinion...

I'm still using a Mach 3...have Fusion in the drawer to start using...but I'm lucky if I shave twice a week...so they last a long time.

That may be another way for Dis Dads to spot me at the World in a few days...I'll be the guy in need of a shave.

Schick Hydro user over here. NOt a bad razor...but if you have a tough beard(like mine) you can kill a blade in about 4 uses. Really expensive.

Don't know if you guys know about this, but if you buy these crogenicly frozen razor blades they last much longer. Go here

http://www.greatrazors.com/

Not much more expensive, and they last much much longer than the untreated razors.

I agree 100%. You always need the right mix.

There are just some coaches who get the most out of their players and some who consistently don't. I am sure you have coaches near you who have near-dynasties in their programs, where year-after-year they are competing for a championship.

There was an old expression about Bear Bryant - he could take his and beat yours, then he could take yours and beat his.

I read some where, (and I am not admitting but) the ladies razors are designed to last longer because of the larger surface area they have to cover in one shave. Again I am not saying my drawer has a pretty pink razor in it but I can tell you that a very credible source belives this to be true.

Electric shaver guy here. When it's OOC, it's the Fusion. Although DW has been wanting me to try the new Gillette Fusion ProGlide... some battery operated fan-dangled thing.

Hey, y'all reckon' Disney would mind if I took the Carb restrictor off the 9.9 hp motors on the Sea Raycers and make it an honest 15 hp?

Just learned that the only thing separating a 9.9 hp Mercury outboard and a 15 hp is a little spacer in the carbs---kinda' like the restrictor plate on a NASCAR motor

Reminds me of when I first started to play golf. We used to open up the golf carts and place a tee in the carb. Ya get a bit more kick on the uptake.

Today was an interesting day. I was off today so it was going to be a Daddy Daughter lunch date day and as soon as Lauren got up she threw up...I don't handle that well... I can take blood but not mucous and junk like that....anyway....she wanted something to drink so I got her some meds and juice...a minute later...grape juice is going everywhere and mucous mixed with grape juice is even worse...Things improved and we decided to try to go ahead and try lunch...she picked Taco Bell...yeah on a bad stomach....asking for trouble...however we got our stuff and sat down and she said "I can't eat this"....I kept thinking she is going to hurl all over the place in the middle of the lunch rush...I hurried and ate and we took her homes so she could just lay on the couch.....Then Ethan comes home from school and it appears that they had to put the school on lockdown today because someone had called and threatened an "act of violence".....it takes all kinds to make a world I guess...I thought we would go to one of the many high school football games tonight...but no one here wanted to go so it looks like we are just gonna chill here...that is our day in a nutshell...how was everyone elses? LOL
