    Front Office : Some great signings and picks, some not so great signings and picks. Pat Williams was probably the best free agent signing of the 2000's so far, 3 years 13 million for the best NT in the league is a hell of a bargain. I'm somewhat satisfied with the front office.

    Coach : No. For all the praise Childress got for developing Donovan McNabb, he sure as **** can't pick the right quarterback here or call plays correctly. His game plans are shoddy at best and the guy simply does not excite anyone to play. He's probably better suited as an offensive coordinator because he does some absolutely silly things with clock management and personnel decisions.

    I'm okay with Spielman & Co, but Childress needs to go.

      I like both for my team. Most Saints fans are sour against Payton but I'm still a fan.
      The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

        Front Office: I have some problems with some of the moves(can't make everyone happy) but I can live and die with Jerry Jones...Some people hate him and like to put the blame of everything on him but one thing he won't do and that's sit around and let the Cowboys stay un-competitive...When all those 2nd-4th round lineman Parcells drafted here didn't pan out Jerry will go out and find studs on the line to protect the QB, if he feels like there is a need he's aggressive to find a fit and he does a good job filling the team with talent.

        He made plenty of mistakes last year, but he showed that he learned from those by some of his moves already, that shows he's not going to be stubborn and really wants to win some playoff games, he got the distractions out and the players who have been liabilities for us for awhile, can't complain at this point.

        Coaching Staff: Here is where my problem is...Wade is fine as a DC, actually that's what he's best at, it's sad everyone knows his day as a HC is coming to an end soon...Players walk all over him, don't respect him, Jerry looks like the HC in the final 2 minutes of a game more then him.

        Garrett has alot to prove this year, he got his wish in getting rid of TO because he was the one leading that train, but he had a terrible 2nd year all together...He needs to show he can utilize 3 RB's consistently, finds ways to get Felix the ball throughout the game, and help Tony get into a rhythm to start the game; all areas he struggled last year.

          I'm in love with Rex. Tannenbaum I'm not so sure. Either he or Woody don't necessarily build a team the way I like (through the draft), but if it works out, it works out. Certainly don't hate him.

            As for the front office...Jerry makes things happen but, in total disregard of the character of the players he targets. He likes to look for that latest bargain and it normally doesnt work out. It doesnt seem like he knows the meaning of the word "chemistry". It atleast looks like he is trying, though. Another qualm, he has always sold the Cowboys, the brand. "If they're talking about us, it's a good thing". Flawed logic. He is as much to blame as anyone else for the media circus and distractions surrounding the Cowboys. Again, it seems like he's trying something different this year. We'll see how that turns out. It's a love/hate relationship when it comes to Jerry Jones. He can do a lot of good but, he can also make you want to pull your hair out.

            Coaches...I've always liked Wade. I thought he'd make a better HC than he has, though. We all know he is soft and trying to toughen up this year. Dicipline is a well known problem on our team. As for his defense...he's always been considered a 3-4 guru and our defense played some impressive ball when he took over the playcalling duties last year. He may not be in the mold of a great HC but, atleast his heart always seems to be in the right place, he's a good guy at the least. haha. I find it hard to dislike him even if he isnt the best man for the job. Again though, he's done wonders for our defense and the players really like him.

            As for Garrett...guy has been over hyped since day one. His playbook lacks creativy and depth and his actual football knowledge could be questioned. He hasnt figured out how to use his weapons, he gets too pass heavy, and he needs to learn how to get/keep his players in a rhythm. He has been the primary reason for our struggles. He has a lot to learn yet...hopefully, he will bounce back this year. You could certainly argue that T.O. was hurting what Garrett really wanted to do. But, he didnt really do himself any favors when sending Roy Williams on the same few routes all season long and failing to use the Rbs properly...among many other things. Again, he's still very green...he was in over his head last season and has a lot to learn. We're going to need him to put that Ivy league education to work this year because, he was a problem last year. Family ties or one is completely safe. If we see a repeat of last year...he may be done in big D rather quickly.

                Completely. Ted Thompson catches a lot of crap from the general fan base, but I am very happy with the job he has done. McCarthy frustrated me at times this past season, but I like what we have in him.

                  Hard to say, since pretty much everything is new. Mayhew and Schwartz look great so far, but I'm still leery about Ford as our owner.

                    I'm not a huge fan of Payton, but I do like what the FO has done in recent years, being much more proactive than in the past.

                    We could do worse than Payton, but I think he could be so much better if he wasn't so stubborn.

                      FO: LOVE the fact that Pioli not only got his QB but in the process may have helped cause friction with a rival.BRILLIANT!!!!

                      coach: time will tell but I think Haley's put together a solid staff

                        Dimitroff and Smith... i guess they've not done too badly so far!

                          FO: I'm not really sure its Al Davis making the moves, seriously. Not going after TO and hasn't given over 50million to anyone not worth it yet? That is great. Signing Barnes, Carslile, Nnamdi and Shane again was brilliant.

                          I think we're heading the right direction.
                          I think we're drafting Crabtree.

                            Front Office consists of Mike Brown which is never a good thing. He's cheap and has a low desire to win it seems. While I'm not happy with the current situation it's unlikely that it will change anytime soon, therefore I live with it.

                            Meanwhile, Marvin gets a bad rap in Cincinnati. Some even say the only reason he isn't going to get fired before his contract is up will be because Mike Brown doesn't want to pay a man who isn't working for him. However, my personal opinion is that Marvin is a good coach. I'm not sure how much of a say he gets on choosing the roster, which is my biggest gripe with this team, but I know Mike Brown gets the final word.

                            Marvin took a team that was terrible all the way through the 90's and into the early 2000's and made it someone respectable, even if only for 1 year. Any coach who can win the division against the ravens and steeler's deserves a second chance imo. We've had a lot of injuries and key players walk since then, but I'm sure Marvin will do his best to try and win again.

                            To summarize: I hate Mike Brown, but can live with that. I like Marvin Lewis and hope he gets another year or two to prove what he's worth.

                              Front Office: We win at least a dozen games a year for over half of this decade and have won a Super Bowl so it's hard to fault Bill Polian. Polian builds through the draft and forgoes chasing overpaid free agents. In fact he rarely hops into free agency until the second or third wave looking for bargains to fill in depth gaps on the roster. We resign our good players who still have their best days still ahead for the most part(Manning, Reggie Wayne, Freeney/Mathis, Hayden ect.) and depart with ones who don't, see Edgerin James and Marvin.

                              Coaching: With Caldwell still yet to coach his first game, this remains to be seen. He was named coach in waiting by Dungy/Irsay before last season when they weren't sure if Tony was retiring. If Caldwell was hand picked by Dungy, that definitely makes me feel better. He did essentially fire Ron Meeks our DC and hired Larry Coyer so hopefully we get bigger interior lineman on D and larger linebackers who can tackle. Our Oc, Tom Moore has been the only OC that Peyton has ever worked with. The offense is continually a perennial top 10 unit if not a top 5. Most of the assistants on O have been with the team for most of the last 10 years with the exception of Frank Reich who replaces Caldwell as QB coach. Ray Rychleski is our new ST coach had some great results at Maryland and South Carolina so perhaps we could have some vast stability and improvement from our STs which had been overall horrible under Russ Pernell.


                              Coaching: WIP as of now but on the whole, yes.

                                Most definitely Graves is excellent at drafting and with Whis/Grimm/etc we are finally developing our talent in the trenches and on defense
