Wondering about something somebody said to me today......
Burnsie...the idiot that believed in rotating all of his players to keep them fresh...including Herschel...if I was coaching the team that had given up all that for one guy (Herschel), I guarantee you that Herschel would have been on the field (in some capacity) for every play...he would have been running back kicks and punts, blocking field goals, bringing water to the other players during timeouts, and maybe even playing linebacker or cornerback on defense...the fact remains that this had to be not only the stupidest trade ever but also the worst use of a star player in the history of the NFL. To add insult to injury, after he leaves Minnesota, he goes back to Dallas and is productive for them...probably the most frustrating time of my sports fan life!
Yup! All I remember is that I was really happy because I was like 8 and we were getting Hershel Walker the greatest football player!! How many years did he play with us, like 4? What a disaster.
I don't think it was that long. It was like his second year with us when he was found in his garage with the car running. Something like that. He then quit shortly after. It wasn't very long. It seemed like 2 years max.
It was the draft picks that killed us.
Yeah, I don't know how long, that was just a guess! 2 years is probably right because he never played for Denny Green did he. It was only Burnsie!!
BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE
