  • Haven't posted in here in a while, but was reading few the last couple of pages. I pretty much agree with what everyone has said and most people here are on the same page. Playoff hopes are done for, we HAVE to get some of the young guys on the field and see what they are capable of, we have nothing more to lose at this point. We gotta get Choice in games now and see if he can share the load with Felix next year. Sean Lee needs to be getting most of Keith Brooking's reps. Try AOA out at safety because it can't get much worse then it is now.

    • Ok, lets turn a new leaf here. What does everyone see happening in the next year, changes wise..?

      Here are my assumptions:

      1. New coaching staff.

      2. Marion Barber Gone.

      3. Is Roy gone? He has been playing well, but a part of me would rathe draft a steve smith type guy in the 4th round for the slot, and have Dez and Miles on the outside.

      4. O-line? Is everyone scrapped but free? I wouldn't mind it.

      5. D-Line, do we look for new DE's?

      6. Secondary.. If the pick is there, are we taking Peterson or Prince, while it may not be the biggest need area?

      Lot's of questions for a team thought to be in the superbowl.

      I'd appreciate it if I get some responses, because I am very curious.


      Side note: When run stopping scrub defense ends pump there fists after a 2 yard tackle... It pisses me off too. Igor, have you had a sack in the last 5 years?

      • Any word on the extent of the Romo injury? Inquiring fantasy minds need to know!

Guys like Mike Singletary, Ray Lewis, Brian Urlacher, Zach Thomas (in MIA)... their energy exuded over to the rest of the team. Their leadership never failed even when their QB was bad or got injured. Lewis had to put up with years of Kyle Boller and other crappy QBs, but he NEVER let his defense let up.

            Bradie James is not and has never been that kind of influence. Brooking tries, he's really a fireball. See his INT last night? He never gave up, but the team does not respond to him the same way. The last person who we had that was that way was Ken Norton Jr. ....and we won SBs with him. I think Sean Lee is pretty intense, focused and vocal on the field, but he's still too young. He doesn't have the credibility here that he did at Penn St. So, it's time to start getting him in games more often as he is the future at the position... and could be THAT guy who we finally can lean on in the future to lead the defense.
            It doesn't have to be the MLB. For us it's Tuck on defense. Offensively, it's your QB or OL player if he is a veteran. It could be a WR too. The fact is you guys have a veteran team. Anyone can take over. How about Ware? James? When they showed shots of Romo, he was de-attached from the game. Granted he got hurt, but pump up your team! Do something! Your a franchise QB for the cowboys. He reminded me of LT on the Chargers when he sat out, because of an injury against the Pats, and had the towel on his head. Show some leadership! Someone step up!

            The HC has to do it too. When you see the sideline, you see Coughllin pumping players up and ranting and raving. Tubby and the staff just stand there. So the players take the coaches demeanor and do the same. I understand you lost your QB, but someone step up and be a leader.

            You see your defense getting shredded, I would expect Ware or someone to lay into the unit. Instead based on what I saw on tv, everyone looked disinterested and staring at the sky. You have to have leadership on your team. Does Tubby even yell at players? In all my years of watching him, I haven't seen him get mad at all..

              I think Romo himself has a lot of pride and would play if he could and it wouldn't jeopardize his future. I was curious if there was a diagnosis and severity report.

                Nooooooooooooo. Tuck is not our guy. He got called out by Rolle for being a lackadaisical leader. It's Rolle and Grant that have emerged as leaders on our defense.

                Supposedly Webster too. There was a good clip on Sound FX on NFL network where Corey is trying to get Tuck fired up and lead the team and Tuck just sat there nodding his head.

                Tuck is not the fiery leader type. He's the lead by example type.

                  Yes he is. Now whether he is effective is a different story. Tuck is 100% our leader. Just listen to the WFAN unterviews. He is that guy and was the one who pulled aside Rolle in the locker room. Now if you want to point out if he is effective or not, then that's a different debate, but Tuck is certainly the leader on that side of the ball.

                    IMO, it's not something you start doing out of the blue. You have to have it "IN" you from the start. Ware was never very vocal. It's not in him. Like I said... Brooking is that guy for us. ...but guys don't seem to respond to him. This being his second season with the team might be part of it, as other veterans before him might not be as interested in what he has to say. I dunno.

                    We need to draft players with that kind of leadership capabilities. Lee has it. Jenkins has it. But our veterans don't have it. That's the problem. T-New isn't that guy. Neither is James or Ware. TO had it, but he's gone and when he was vocal that turned guys off. LOL. Imagine that. It's like the team is anti-leadership! I don't want that to rub off on the young guys.

                        He's one of the few guys that didn't give up last night. No matter what goes on around him, he's one of those guys that has an inner will to keep on chugging. Wish all our guys were like that. He has his weaknesses, but you can't count heart as one of them.

                        • True, but the guy can't really play anymore. I wouldn't give up if this was probably my last season in the NFL either.

                            Yeah, that makes more sense to me as an outsider. Tuck never seemed to be the rah rah type. He leads by example. Ware is similar in that regard.

                            Interesting that you name Rolle... him being a newcomer. Brooking brought the same to our team as a newcomer last year.

                            I really wanted Sean Weatherspoon for us, because he's that kind of personality. Too bad he wasn't the type to fly under the radar. ATL scooped him up with the 19th overall pick!

                              This team has to mucn talent to go 2-14. Not gonna lie, right now I hope we do.

                              New coaches and peterson.. I wouldn't even need porn next summer!!!
                              I couldn't care less about getting one specific player. One man won't change the team. It's going to have to be all about changing the mentality. Yeah I'd like a guy like Peterson or Amukamara, but beyond getting a safety or corner they need new leaders. Whoever they bring in next needs to put a premium on heart, in some cases more than skill.

                              • Yesss.....It WILL happen! I think 4-12 is all it will take quite honestly.


                                And if I see Orlando Scandrick in the street I'm gonna toss a large smoothie at the drivers side window and drive off.
