Neither were unmarkable though lets get that right.
Shane Sweeney, now there's a lad that was unmarkable.

So if stevie was from Cross and took the frees? Who'd be better?

If Cross was in Dublin they would have "signed" him and won all before them.
Report

Don't get Indiana started about winning all before them!  ::)

Oisin was lethal. Without him Armagh would not have won anything. Having a forward like him is what wins all Irelands

What he said.
Oisin was as valuable to Armagh as PTG was to Tyrone during the glory years

You can't really compare Oisin and Stevie Mac, both superb players who brought something different to the table. Throw in Marsden and John Mac and you go some way to seeing why the current armagh squad are so poor.

McConville seemed to lose a bit of pace maybe round 2005ish and wasn't as effective at county level but never lost that effectiveness at club level. Before then he was deadly at county too but maybe not just as much afterwards.

Why armagh only won the one is one of the great mysteries, second only to why Mayo won none

Hardly a mystery! Kerry and Tyrone just had that little bit extra than them.
That was never a square ball!!

Still don't know how he managed to score that goal in the 2008 semi final.

Different types of footballers,  Stevie a better 'impulse' player,  Oisin a metronome, both deadly!

The back door killed Armagh. If it had not been invented until 2006, Armagh would have seen a few more titles.

Quite possibly true. The extra games tested the squad and when it came to it the depth if the Armagh squad was not quite as deep as some others. Armagh is a small county with the most populated area - Craigavon / Lurgan/ Portadown providing very few county GAA players.
