    Wondering about something somebody said to me today......

    alright, someone at work (i live in milwaukee) decided to go off on another vikings suck tirade, but during it he brought up herschel walker. which got me thinking, i always hear people say that trade made the cowboys able to win the superbowl, how? how could it have been that lopsided, i know it was for a few players and a pick or something, but who were the players? when it was all said and done, what did the cowboys end up with?

    and if it was as bad as i hear, how long did the GM last after he made it?

    All i can say is that t hey didnt get just one pick, they got a ton of picks which turned out mainly to be linemen. THus it helped dallas in my theory control both sides of the ball with the linemen selected which later led to them winnning the superbowl. NOt sure if im right but i know they got some linemen in the draft with our picks.

    And i know they got darren woodson out of the draft which could have been ours if we had that draft pick out of the players still around today. Im prolly missing some more.

    Yes, it was definitely THE WORST trade in NFL history, and the most lopsided. I think the main thinking behind why the Vikings pulled the trigger on it was this: they actually thought that Herschel was the "last piece of the puzzle" on the Viking road to the Super Bowl. And during the first game after the trade (against none other than the Packers), it sure looked like Herschel was the man - he ran for over 100 yds., had a long run for a TD (losing a shoe in the process). Of course, as every true Viking fan knows, it was the beginning of the end of the Jerry Burns/Mike Lynne era in Minnesota and the beginning of a LONG playoff dry spell...

    In short, there's only ONE word that describes that trade:

    DOH!

    Wait a minute, let me get this straight, we traded them ALL those players and ALL those picks for Walker at the end of his prime?
