    I think he's an above average 2 down run stuffer, yes. He has not been a bust. Especially when you consider what his contract is. And don't forget he was signed to replace Canty and what kind of return has NY gotten on Canty?

    • Now that the sweling has gone down from the Houston humiliation last weekend I think a point s/b made.

      When Dallas has to go back there in Wk. 3 there will be that advantage for the Texans in their pregame locker room speech, Kubiak is a native Texan & a smart coach who would be foolish not to use it. I can just hear him now:

      "We opened up some serious whupass on them 5 wks ago & don't think they don't know it over there (points to visitors locker room)."

      The psychological stigma is planted in the team & that's the consequence of the walk through performance the team posted in Reliant Stadium last Saturday. Dallas would love to forget it but no way in hell will the Texans let them.

      Consider also that Houston didnt just beat any garden variety NFL team in their 1st franchise regular season game, they beat the Dallas Cowboys who owned pro FB that state forever.

      Again, some teams just have other teams' numbers, & I hope I'm wrong here as a Cowboys fan. But anyone who's been paying attn. the past few yrs. has to know that Houston is a red hot up & coming team that has to overcome almost complete annual division dominance in their AFC South by Indy, & Dallas does NOT want to be their steppingstone to elite NFL status.

      EDIT: Like most Cowboys fans who go back a ways I was spoiled by the Jimmy Johnson yrs. JJ has a degree in psychology & would never have allowed an opposing HC to have anything like a psychological advantage on his team.

      • Meh, it's just preseason. If I remember correctly, Indianapolis was 0-4 in the preseason the year they won the SB.
        We showed them nothing, especially on defense and we know that our defense lives and dies with our blitz packages. On the other hand, Houston showed a little too much, imo, especially a couple of fancy plays on offense.

        • Wade said Lee missed too much time and is out of the nickel packages. Either Brooking will play three downs...or Jason Williams, Gerald Sensabaugh, or soon to be real Cowboy, Danny Mccray will man that nickel role.

          • Slowly but surely it seems that Jason Williams is getting it. Once he finally gets where he needs to be mentally he'll make one helluva tandem with Sean Lee.

            • I hope Williams does get that role...his play has steadily improved this preseason.

                Look were all cowboys fans here and im not trying to start and arguement, we all want to win, but I think spears is undervalued.

                Do you have any real evidence that Spears is so good vs the run, or no? Or that he's twice the run stuffer Hatcher or Bowen is?


                I've at least showed you one played where Spears got pushed the hell out of the way(which a 3-4 DE is at least supposed to hold the POA), and ran untouched for 80 yards. Your best rebuttle to that was "well that was in the 4th qt at the end of the game" LOL. Plays like that don't happen to a great run blocker, and he wasn't even double teamed until after he was almost pancaked.


                If a guy is really stout vs the run that doesn't happen, and again he has been on the field numerous times we have been ran all over.


                I also don't think Igor is a bust. Like MOTH said he's basically the same player here as in SD, he holds the point of attack very well, doesn't rush the passer, I thought we all knew that. He doesn't provide the pass rushing ability Canty has but he gives us an upgrade in the running game.


                I bet if someone reviewed game film from Igor back to when he was a rookie you would NEVER see him get pushed around like a rag doll the way Spears did on that play, I know people have bad plays but stuff like that doesn't happen with him. He's one of the strongest players in the league and while he may not make a play, he's not going to get pushed out of the hole completely like Spears does.

                  I really hope he does too, I think he's better suited for that type of role then Lee. Lee is an ideal inside starter, but Williams seems like an upgraded more athletic Kevin Burnett, we need him on the field in passing situations. Albeit not as smart as Lee, there is probably alot more we can do with him out there. Brooking no way in hell needs to be playing 3 downs at his age, that's why we have so much LB depth, to preserve him.



                  Also I've been thinking about how our starters are gonna play vs Mia, so what happens when they come out and go 3 and out once or twice? Do we let them play 2-3 quarters and risk injuries trying to get some points on the board?


                  It be nice if Dez can just get tackled a few times though, catch a few routes, then get his ass outta there.

                  • The starters aren't playing LL. And I don't care to argue about spears anymore lol, you win.

                    As for Jason Williams and Sean Lee, I think that is flying under the radar, but if they both pan out.. that will be one helluva tandem for the next decade.

                    I like our future. Spend some high picks on o-line soon, and were set.

                    Think about it..

                    QB- Set.
                    RB- Set.
                    WR- Set.
                    TE- Set.
                    O-Line- Priority with high picks in the next few drafts.
                    D-Line- Solid, but can be improved. High pick on a DE?
                    OLB- Set.
                    ILB- If Lee and Williams pan out, Set.
                    Safety- Bleh, luxury pick maybe? Depends on ball.
                    CB- Draft an eventual Newman replacement, Set.

                    Not even being a homer, looks pretty good. (Knocks on wood.)

                    • A lot of starters will play, actually. I hear Romo isnt, though. Freaking Mcgee is starting. ugh.

                      Thanks BoneKrusher^

                        Actually the starters are gonna be playing, just not sure how long.

                        • As for my previous post...dont get me wrong, I'm happy Romo isnt playing. I just dont want to see a full game played by Mcgee.

                          Thanks BoneKrusher^

                          • You are both wrong. I few starters who aren't really big names are playing, and the people who need to play because of numbers. The starters are NOT playing. The people who are playing with significance are players like Choice, Marty B, etc. No real starters are playing.

                            • ugh. You just totally contradicted yourself.

                              Yes, some of the starters will be playing in the game. Not all, but some...so that does indeed mean, starters will be playing. Wade hasnt said which ones yet, but some will play.

                              Thanks BoneKrusher^
