      dominated Oak @ home last year then at the end of the game go to prevent defense and wind up losing

          For the Chiefs there are many but these are off the top of my head in no order.

          Sitting the hot hand in Rich Gannon and starting Elvis Grbac in the playoffs.

          Never giving Joe Horn a real chance to play and then watching him ball for the Saints.

          Trading Jared Allen.

          Letting Donnie Edwards walk in his prime.

          Ryan Sims.

          Not keeping Tony Richardson.

          Not grooming young guys in the DV days.

            maybe I should make a list of the things we've done right. It would be a much shorter list.

              Hahaha that's how I feel about Jacksonville.

              I don't even know where to begin. I suppose the downfall really starts with the selection of RJ Soward.

                I don't see how firing dungy was a mistake when you won a superbowl that year with Gruden

                The way it is

                  I don't think trading Jared Allen was a mistake. One of those picks got us Jamaal Charles.

                  Drafting Ryan Sims was a big mistake. I think one of the biggest mistakes we've ever made was keeping Carl Peterson in his position for as long as we did. He did draft some studs but more than not they were players who didn't contribute.

                  Trading back with the Steelers and drafting LJ was a mistake in my mind. The Steelers used that pick to draft Troy Polamalu. I'm still confident that anyone running behind that then insane offensive line could have had equal production to LJ.

                    True but you would have alot better chance of finding another Charles then another Allen, as much as I like Charles I would rather have Allen.

                          Dallas Cowboys

                          -Barbie Carpenter
                          -Letting Steve Hoffman go in 2004. Our special teams were a mess till Joe DeCamillis arrived in 2009.
                          -Quincy Carter
                          -Trading Antonio Bryant
                          -Willingness to let our HOF'ers play for other teams.
                          -Not moving Flozell to LG instead of releasing him. *note* May have asked but never reported.
                          -Passing on Steven Jackson
                          -Joey Galloway -- (Although we had karma coming for robbing the Vikings blind) --

                          A lot of my mistakes are in the 'Parcells Era'. Not to say he didn't do a lot of good for the Cowboys because I'm grateful but imagine if Jerry would of listened in the 2005 Draft and selected Marcus Spears over Ware...

                            Drafting Kyle Boller
                            Keeping Kyle Boller for as long as we did
                            Keeping Billick as long as we did
                            Mark Clayton?

                            We as Ravens fans are clearly scum of the earth, and should just be happy that these great people, who cheer for nothing than the finest, morally impeccable players, playing on the finest, most morally impeccable teams, will grace us with their presence, and words of wisdom.

                              Two first round picks for Joey Galloway. 'Nuff said.

                              First and a third for Roy E. 'Nuff said.

                              Drafting Barbie Carpenter over ANYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD.

                              Passing on Steven Jackson for a future first round pick, which ended up being Marcus Spears. FML.

                              Having a fetish with hiring baseball players to play QB for us.

                              Giving Marcellus Wiley like 8m guaranteed.
