  • "Your Points" thread

    Alright, we seem to have a bunch of guys who want to be known as "having a point" to make. Use this thread to clearly state your points on the Cowboys. How they stand, what they need to do, what/who are the problems, predictions, anything. This will help each other out on knowing where we all stand.

    Dallas Cowboys 2007

    9-7 winner of NFC East
    Roy Williams leads team in TFL
    Ware leads team in sacks
    Ken Hamlin leads team in INT's
    Bradie James leads team in tackles

    Tony Romo breaks the Dallas Cowboys franchise passing yard record
    TO leads the team in receptions
    Jason Witten leads the team in 20+yard catches
    JJ and MB3 contribute for over 2000 yards combined
    Fasano is our most improved player.

    We take our exit sometime after the first round in the playoffs...but thats a big hump for us.

    Offseason.

    We like what we see in MB3...JJ who was Parcells horse is shown the door. He was productive but Wade has different plans.

    Ken Hamlin is resigned and had one hell of a year for us.
    Romo's deal is worked out around week 10.
    Crayton shown the door? I don't see it but would like to see it happen.

    FA looks to be dull this year probably just a few middle of the line players.

    Draft
    We will go defense early. Look for like a Calis Campbell or Chris Long or w/e CB steps up.
    Prob go best offensive skill position with our later first. I'm still hoping for our small shifty guy.
    After this is a crap shoot....probably DE/interior OL/NT/CB wherever we didn't go round one.

      Are we limited to just Sunday or the whole season.

      Whole season is more interesting but very speculative without any real results to calibrate the forecast.

      Please advise.

        1. Our DL is now the weakest unit on the team.
        I think Marcus Spears will never realize his potential. I think Chris Canty never had that great a potential to start off with and while he may reach his potential, it's not much. I don't think he is a playmaker. I consider him a career backup type. Never averaging more than 4 sacks a season. I like Ratliff "in his role as backup" coming off the bench and providing energy. I would not like him as a starter. I don't like Ferguson at NT. Too inconsistent and aging fast. Does not help those around him by demanding a double team. Hatcher is the wild card, but he is very raw and will probably need more time.

        2. Terence Newman needs to take his game to the next level and become a better playmaker. He needs to get more interceptions in order to take this defense to the level it needs to be elite.

        3. Jason Witten has been riding the success of his rookie season way too long. He is not an elite TE, although he may have elite talent. We need more production from him this season. Fasano will have a nice year.

        4. Tony Romo is our franchise QB for at least the next 6-7 years. He's not perfect, but he's what we got.

        5. Nick Folk is the man. Franchise Kicker.

        6. Julius Jones is in his last year with the Cowboys.

        7. Jason Garrett will be the HC of the Cowboys in 3 years.

        8. Ken Hamlin will have a huge impact for the Cowboys this season. We will want him back for a long term contract.

        9. Offseason Needs:
        Must Haves: FS, CB, NT

        Need to Haves: DE, WR

        Want to Haves: RB, Backup QB, Back up C, OL Depth

        10. Pro Bowlers: Roy Williams, DeMarcus Ware, Andre Gurode, Leonard Davis, Terrell Owens, Jason Witten.

        11. Anthony Spencer will not win DROY.

        12. We will regret letting Matt Moore go.

        13. OL will be a strength.

        14. Isaiah Stanback will surpass Crayton, Hurd, Austin on the depth chart.

        15. Jason Ferguson will play all 16 games.

        16. Our corners will kill us deep.

        17. People will chalk this year up as Wade's first year and the excuse will be this is an adjustment year. I hate that.

        18. Romo will get a huge contract extension that will begin to strap the franchise.

        19. Kevin Burnett has a great year.

        20. Bobby Carpenter shows glimpses... nothing more.

          -This team is fundamentally flawed, and it starts with the head coach and his tool of a DC.

          - Tony Romo is a franchise-level QB, and will be for at least the next 6 years. He is going to be a Pro Bowler this season, and into the future.

          - The team is going to regret not taking Alan Branch in seasons to come, maybe even as soon as this year.

          - Roy Williams and Bradie James will both be significantly improved from previous seasons, and both -- particularly Bradie -- will make a major Pro Bowl push.

          - Canty and Hatcher will both emerge as major forces along the D-Line

          - Terry Glen has seen his last productive season. This year will be injury plagued, and he will be out of the league by the end of next season.

          - The Cowboys are going to have it demonstrated to their senses that they need a top WR prospect, asap, and will likely discover that this season would have been best.

          - Jason Witten is going to start getting credit for being the top 3 TE that he is.

          - Flo and Colombo are both going to be gone after this year.

              I think Campbell would be a waste of talent in a 34 defense.
              Imo, we'll go WR/CB/RB and maybe OT (if they're not confident on Free) in the first round next year.

                - I would like to see Demarcus take his game up a notch. I myself am guilty of patrolling these forums posting excerpts from the "Gospel of Demarcus Ware", but in all honestly there is alot of things he needs to improve on. There are to many times where he gets eaten up by the tackles and tight ends. Once he gets engaged that is pretty much it for him.

                - Not addressing the NT position in this previous draft could come back to bite us. Furgie is solid and borderline great, but with both Branch and Tank there for the taking, we had a chance to address a need in depth and in a future replacement. Excuse me if I'm not the biggest fan of Ratliff at NT.

                - If Burnett can stay goddanm healthy I'll be willing to throw a parade for him. He has shown time and time again he can be a big impact player for us, but injuries keep getting in the way.

                - For the first time in a long time, I feel very comfortable with out O-line situation. Not only with our starters but with our backups as well (except for proctor).

                To be continued....

                  I totally forgot about that. I was a huge Alan Branch fan during all the draft talk. I thought it was inconceivable to even mention him being an option at 22. While I like the trade with Cleveland, I do think with the move back in round 1 for Spencer, could have been used on Branch instead and we would be a better team because of it. I really hope Spencer becomes a major force in the NFL, because anything less would make me upset.

                    - Spears will be demoted for Hatcher by Year End. NT of the future.
                    - Roy Williams will stink up the pass defense and significantly contribute to 2 losses.
                    - Bradie will play better because he will not be asked to play zone as much.
                    - Hatcher will have a break out year. Richard Seymouresque.
                    - Carpenter will be our starting SOLB by year end. No ifs and or buts.
                    - If healthy, Burnett will either push Bradie or Ayodele out of a job by year's end.
                    - Ware will get 15 sacks
                    - Jones or Reeves will pleasantly surprise
                    - Henry and Newman will be fine
                    - Hamlin will be here one year. Watkins takes over unless Mr Phillips comes our way as Scott predicts.

                    - Romo will have a Pro Bowl season but will make some killer turnovers. Hopefully they all occur the same game Roy gets burned and we get all our losses out of way in bad blow-outs.
                    - TO will have a worse numbers but less drops.
                    - Austin or Hurd will take over for Glenn.
                    - Witten will not go to the ProBowl b/c Fasano is going to take away catches and touchdowns (Anthony is my sleeper). Witten is still great.
                    - We will be a much better running team with Bigg.
                    - We will not be a much better pass protecting team with Bigg
                    - Flo or Colombo are both gone at year's end, or both.
                    - Julius is gone by year's end. Another 4.1 yards per carry season with 200 carries and 3-4 TDs.
                    - Marion Barber will get more than half the carries and ALL THE GLORY. Big contract coming.

                    Overall
                    - 10-6, Wild Card Win, Lose on the road.
                    - Cleveland gives us the first pick in the draft. They will really suck.
                    - Jerry trades our #1 for someone who needs Brian Brohm. We get their #1, next years #1 plus a Second Rounder.
                    - With our two 1s we get some combination of McFadden/Slaton/Stewart (RB) and Long/Baker/Cherilis (LT) or Kenny Phillips (S)
                    - With our two 2nd round picks we go Ellis/Okam (NT) and Cason/Bowman (CB).

                          This is a good thread, so here I go...

                          Spears will continue to be terrible.

                          The secondary will continue to be blamed for a crappy dront three.

                          Roy, Leonard Davis, Romo, Owens, Ware, Mcbriar and Witten go to the Pro Bowl.

                          And I am a homer. 11-5. But I dont see a super bowl berth.

                          We WILL draft a player from Arkansas (either rb, wr or dl.)

                            I have a few now and I'll add more later
                            1. We will have 11-5 record, winning the NFC East winning 1 playoff game, Super Bowl is possible, but unlikely

                            2. We will have a top-10 offense and defense

                            3. Tony Romo will have a great year, although he'll have more turnovers than he should

                            4. Marcus Spears will play himself onto the Bench

                            5. Jason Witten will not make the Pro-Bowl. He will put up good stats, but wont make it to Hawaii for the first time since his rookie year

                            6. tbc
