Well the McD "path" led us to our current situation for sure, 100%, positive. Therefore, due to the McD ---> Elway/Manning connection being a 100% correlation, I still vote that yes, it was worth it. As you said, we don't know if another crappy coach would've led us to our current situation. McDip**** did, and we know
that. Give me the guarantee...as painful as it seems, thanks McDouchebag!
