Big-Name Franchises Make Huge News During Offseason

Posted: May 26, 2010

Three teams in our Swampland Footprint definitely have national fan bases and looked to make a splash during free agency and the draft. The Dallas Cowboys made their news on the first night of the draft, while the Miami Dolphins and Washington Redskins dominated the headlines with their pre-draft trades and free-agent signings. Each organization likes attention and feels a need to satisfy their loyal fans, and they all made significant moves towards competing for the postseason in 2010.

Dallas is already a Playoff team with a dangerous offense, and they only got better with the selection of Dez Bryant with the 24th pick of the first round. Many NFL experts considered the Oklahoma State receiver a Top 5 talent, so the Cowboys got great value by taking the Lufkin native where they did. With a stable of solid running backs and Bryant to complement Miles Austin, quarterback Tony Romo should have enough weapons to lead another NFC East title.

The Redskins have struggled over the last few seasons to catch their division brethren, but they made huge news this offseason. It all started with the hire of two-time Super Bowl winner Mike Shanahan, as owner Dan Snyder continues to try and fix his inconsistent franchise. Washington then made more headlines with the acquisition of longtime Philadelphia quarterback. Donovan McNabb. The much maligned (by overbearing Eagles fans only) McNabb led Philadelphia to five of the last nine NFC Championship games, somewhere Washington has not been since 1991. Snyder may get impatient with all of his free agent signings and trading of draft picks, but he is always trying to bring a winner to the nation’s capital.

Miami also made big news before the draft with their acquisition of Pro Bowl wide receiver Brandon Marshall. The Dolphins ended the Ted Ginn experiment by trading him to San Francisco, and they brought in a proven receiver who had 101 catches and 10 touchdowns in Denver last season. Quarterback Chad Henne will now have a top-flight target to go with a physical running game as Miami tries to repeat their 2008 success.

The fan bases of the Cowboys, Redskins and Dolphins have waited a long time for their popular franchises to return to the Super Bowl. Each organization improved its team this offseason with big-time acquisitions and made huge headlines in the process.

 That t made the good middle-class people laugh heartily at the expense of the great writer.In journals which sold themselves, prostituted journalists, insulted the exiles of 1815. Ugg boots clearance  David had no longer any talent, Arnault had no longer any wit, Carnot was no longer honest, Soult had won no battles; it is true that Napoleon had no longer any genius.No one is ignorant of the fact that letters sent to an exile by post very rarely reached him, as the police made it their religious duty to intercept them. Ugg boots clearance  This is no new fact; Descartes complained of it in his exile.   Now David, having, in a Belgian publication, shown some displeasure at not receiving letters which had been written to him, it struck the royalist journals as amusing; and they derided the prescribed man well on this occasion.What separated two men more than an abyss was to say, the regicides, or to say the voters; to say the enemies, or to say the allies; to say Napoleon, or to say Buonaparte. Ugg boots outlet  All sensible people were agreed that the era of revolution had been closed forever by King Louis XVIII., surnamed "The Immortal Author of the Charter."On the platform of the Pont-Neuf, the word Redivivus was carved on the pedestal that awaited the statue of Henry IV.   M. Piet, in the Rue Therese, No. 4, was making the rough draft of his privy assembly to consolidate the monarchy.   The leaders of the Right said at grave conjunctures, "We must write to Bacot." UGG Boots Clearance  MM.   Canuel, O'Mahoney, and De Chappedelaine were preparing the sketch, to some extent with Monsieur's approval, of what was to become later on "The Conspiracy of the Bord de l'Eau"--of the waterside.L'Epingle Noire was already plotting in his own quarter.Delaverderie was conferring with Trogoff.   M. Decazes, who was liberal to a degree, reigned.   Chateaubriand stood every morning at his window at No. 27 Rue Saint-Dominique, clad in footed trousers, and slippers, with a madras kerchief knotted over his gray hair, with his eyes fixed on a mirror, a complete set of dentist's instruments spread outUGG Boots Clearance before him, cleaning his teeth, which were charming, while he dictated The Monarchy according to the Charter to M. Pilorge, his secretary.   Criticism, assuming an authoritative tone, preferred Lafon to Talma.   M. de Feletez signed himself A.; M. Hoffmann signed himself Z. Charles Nodier wrote Therese Aubert.Divorce was abolished.   Lyceums called themselves colleges.The collegians, decorated on the collar with a golden fleur-de-lys, fought each other apropos of the King of Rome. ugg boots clearance

THE GHOST HAS ATTAINED the southernmost point of the arc she is describing across the Pacific, and is already beginning to edge away to the west and north toward some lone island, it is rumored, where she will fill her water-casks before proceeding to the season's hunt along the coastugg boots clearance of Japan. The hunters have experimented and practiced with their rifles and shotguns till they are satisfied, and the boat-pullers and steerers have made their sprit-sails, bound the oars and rowlocks in leather and sennit so that they will make no noise when creeping on the seals, and put their boats in ugg boots clearanceapple-pie order, to use Leach's homely phrase.His arm, by the way, has healed nicely, though the scar will remain all his life. Thomas Mugridge lives in mortal fear of him, and is afraid to venture on deck after dark. There are two or three standing quarrels in the forecastle. Louis tells me that the gossip of the sailors finds its way aft, and that two of the telltales have been badly beaten by their mates. He shakes his head dubiously over the outlook for the man Johnson, who is boat-puller in the same boat with him. Johnson has been guilty of speaking his mind too freely, and has collided two orugg boots clearance three times with Wolf Larsen over the pronunciation of his name. Johansen he thrashed on the amidships deck the other night, since which time the mate has called him by his proper name. But of course it is out of the ugg boots clearancequestion that Johnson should thrash Wolf Larsen.
