Why would the name Roger be exempt from needing an apostrophe to make it a possessive tense?

 

Why would the name Roger be exempt from needing an apostrophe to make it a possessive tense?

Wasn't sure if an abstract concept (day) qualified for possessive tensification.

If You're sure it does, then Roger that. :D

Another thing they had in common ... they didn't care one bit about stats. Winning was their goal.

Should be THE only goal..

Aikman and Staubach 

 

both averaged around 200 passing yards a game over the course of their career:

 

199 per game for Aikman

173 per game for Roger

Source, NFL Reference

That is what happens when a team is run first, the passing numbers will usually be much lower. This means that those Cowboy teams did not have to rely on the QB as much as they relied on the run game and solid defense. Had both the run and defense been bad, QB would have had to pass more often, which was the case why players like Marino, Fouts, and Tarkenton have more passing numbers.

I remember Aikman lamenting not being in the WCO. He's content with his championships though.

I might say this: we’ve always been a running team and I’m sure we will continue to be so. (We’ve been criticized for it, I might add.) But I’ve always felt that three things can happen to you whenever you throw the football, and two of them are bad. You can catch the ball, you can throw it incomplete, or have it intercepted.

Skip Bayless is a switch hitter

 

Well, Garrett enjoys slapping grown men on the ass.  Whats the hidden message there?

Have you ever played a team sport? It happens all of the time. Not sure what the motivation is, but it's not sexual.

:ph34r: and in basketball you always see the other players getting behind the "center", and taking passes under his butt.

Garrett is the basketball coach leading the game with 29 seconds left in the game. He runs a play to score again instead of running the clock out. The opposing team gets the rebound and drives the court to win.
This is Garrett, but the excuse would be "well if he had scored we would have won."  smh.

Could explain why he played QB. Even though he sucked at it.

Moving to "Classic Cowboys" since it does not pertain to current players.

Both played in the RB era.  Both would have beaten Marino's numbers had they played with Goodell as commish.

Did great things in their respective eras, and would still be awesome in the modern game. They are way down the list of NFL great players I think, but its a competitive list to get on.

If you have Doomsday, or a no. 1 defense that gives you the ball in the opponent's territory or at your own 40, etc. then you're not going to have the gaudy offensive numbers, just don't have to drive the ball 80 yards every time to score.

 

Both Roger and Troy had the benefit of a top defense most or at least a lot of the years they played, Tony, not so much...

it was the coaches philosophy that did not care about the stats, not the QBs.

   Roger could also run the ball himself and move the chains .  He could scramble and buy time .  He could be deadly accurate and kill you with his arm . 

 

     He could come back and win playoff games with guys like Billy Parks and Ron Sellers .   Most of all he had the ability to make every player on the field opponent or teammate believe if there was time left on the clock he could win the game .  No other Cowboy player since has had that kind of power .

 

    Roger was the best of the best and represented every thing that used to be good about football .
