NFL Week 16

Two weeks to go before the playoffs.

I like the NFL Network's morning show a lot more than ESPN's. 

Michael Irvin was asked on there today about leadership from your quarterback, and whether Troy Aikman was a leader.  He said that Troy was the leader of the offense, but it was in terms of off-the-field stuff.  He was a guy who would make sure guys showed up on time to meetings, did the work they needed to do, studied the game plan, etc.  He said he was the guy who was a leader on the field, in terms of getting guys fired up and all that, but he said he wasn't the best person to make sure guys got to meetings and all that -- he said he had some issues with getting places on time, so he really needed Troy there to help him with that.

That, I think, helps explain the issues between Troy and Barry Switzer...Troy wanted guys to handle their business, something Jimmy was big on, and the two of them were on the same page.  Barry was more of a "these guys are adults, I can't control what they do" guy, and that didn't mesh with Troy.

Having Barry's buddy call him a racist, and having Barry suggest that he was gay, probably didn't help, of course.
