    You said: "HAHA Geez I was really hoping you were gonna come out and admit it...but still old same cowboysforever in there. It's alright robertinbigd you've matured up abit and adapted to the board I can respect that. I think it was pretty obvious to the rest of us this is your 3rd or 4th s/n...no means to be ashamed man you've came along ways."


    This is why I asked for some reference point to this. What are we talking about?

      On Zak, the one thing to take note of is that if he can really play b/c of his athletics then he will be gone by end of 3rd. Day 1 Special Teams, Long Snapper, Smart, Pedigree and potential starter in 2-3 years .... unless he messes up somewhere someone will take a flyer on him and let pass a big name school guy.

                yea props for calling Spencer, although i would of welcomed Moss with open arms, hometown guy and very athletic, you pretty much hit it on the head with Spencer...who you calling for this year ;)


                And alot of us really wanted Tyler, sucks we didnt go after him, I think he could of been a difference maker on us, do we address NT in free agency or the draft this year or just see what Tank gives us the 2nd half of the year

                  Right now I'm still sold on jerry moving up to get his guy.
                  But lets remember. Last year we really had no idea until we started bringing guys in. That really helped us narrow it down...we brought in 4/5 DE/OLB hybrids it was a good give away that was the direction we were gonna go if depth was there.

                    This defense is a deep patrol away from being dominant. We gave up so many big plays last year that it torpedoed most of what we were trying to do elsewhere. I think with the new season, and a little help at FS, we can break out as a top 5 team in the league very easily. Last season it was evident that we had the talent, we just struggle to put it all together at the same time. Unless Wade is completely inept as the head man, I fully expect us to be near the top of the league. There is no doubt that we have the talent that it takes. Our ILBs are fine, so are our OLBs, our DEs, and our CBs. NT is fine, too, though an injury there could kill us. Really, the question for our defense lies at Safety, where we need to get more out of Roy, and see substantial improvement at FS. There is no need to start freaking out and calling for change just for the sake of change.
                    I think this summarizes most individuals feelings on the issue .... from last year. Not picking on anyone, jusss sayin'

                    I was down on our ILB in coverage. So far, we are no better in spite of Roy W playing LB. We still struggle in zone or man.
                    a) I was really down on Bradie b/c of his coverage. I will admit he is much more productive stopping the run this year in the new scheme and faster. Good for him. His coverage skills ... not so much.
                    b) Akin, I dunno. Has he made a play this year? I am surprised.

                    Our safeties, where bad last year but had hope for Watkins
                    a) Roy is same old and in fact is playing as much in a LB role as anything. We still have major problems playing coverage in Base D b/c he is what he is as a SS.
                    b) Hamlin seems to not understand Cover 1/2 as a FS. NE was a great example of it. NE could not run and he still was over committing to play action and biting on short routes. With that said, he is a marked improvement over Roy as a SS.
                    c) Watkins has been invisible until the bogus Interference penalty. That is a good thing right now for our FS.
                    d) Wanted Henry at FS but we signed Hamlin, kept Roy and cut our best nickel corner (Glenn).

                    I felt our D line needed to be reconfigured to get better rush and improve the NT situation
                    a) Spears to NT. Backup Fergie
                    b) Hatcher to start
                    c) Other guys are JAGS. Raliff plays with spunk but not a NT as pointed out.
                    d) Tank should help.

                    I said let go TO, get a WR in draft 07 and get two new guards. 1 of 3 compeleted and results positive. Other 2, well TO hands still yuck and Bowe/Rice/Jarrett would have made a good solution given our other WRs are sepping up nicely. Kosier is a JAG,

                    Gentlemen, said I'd be back after some of the "forecasts could be validated." So now was a good time. Sad we lost BP also. Happy we are 5-1. Schedule gets tougher though and the NFC games will be brutal if we don't get the coverage fixed.

                      The longer this offseason goes on the bigger weakness our OLB position seems to be. I really think that if we are looking at a rush backer that Spencer should be our guy. I think he just has another dimension as the other rush backers in this draft. Moss has decent hips and a array of moves...but doesn't really have that initial punch. Moses has stiff hips and although he could make the transition...the curve looks a bit to big for me. I love woodley as a player...but his height will always be a concern for me...unless we are gonna draft him specifically as a rush backer...similar to the way Anderson was utilized in Chicago. I have a feeling I'm forgetting someone...but can't pull it off the top of my head. I just then Spencer is the complete package. Spencer probably has the most balanced guys I mentioned..I think he would be the guy to make the biggest impact from day one of the other projects listed. He has been my #1 RLB since the end of the season.
                      Hopefully we will start to see that dimension that other rush backers don't have, cause so far we haven't seen it.

                      Good guess though.

                      I would rather have Moss to this day, but that's always been just personal preference.

                      I thought Carp would unseat on of our ILBs by now, but that hasn't been the case. Something needs to happen with him soon.

                        Ya it would be nice to see him take advantage of the 1 on 1's he's getting.

                        One thing that he has done way better than anyone could have expected is stacking up against the run. Not one DE from the last draft could have started from day 1 and been able to not be a weak spot like he has. I'm actually scared at how well he works on the LOS standing up...if he works on his hands he can still be a force.

                        I've watched a couple of games with Moss...and I haven't seen him do anything special. Hell he only has one sack and 0 TFL. He is playing the exact same position that he played at Florida. Spencer has vastly outplayed him imo. We are still talking about a guy who is in the transition from putting his hand on the ground.

                          Well I think it's still too early for both guys. Moss hasn't had nearly the amount of playing time that Spencer has had... I'm not upset that we have Spencer, just saying I wish he would give us more pressure on the QB. He has been good at the run, a credit to him.
