Greg Ellis: No Mas
Well, after 11 years, the Cowboys have decided to let Greg Ellis go. I think they'd still like to make a trade but absent that, they will release him. Thus is resurrected the Randy Moss debate, for it was Ellis whom the Cowboys chose over Moss 11 years ago. Moss lacked character, was a bad dude; Ellis was a man whom his college coach (Mac Brown) would choose to raise his kids should he (Brown) suffer some tragedy. The Cowboys were reeling from a series of embarassingly public and seedy revelations about certain players (remember the White House?) and Jerry "It's my actual hair" Jones didn't think the Cowboys could risk taking on Moss and his baggage. So Ellis was picked and will be forever remembered as the guy they took instead of Moss, and not for his performance, on or off the field.
