Garrett's familiarity with our vets is not a good thing IMO, there's undoubtedly a comfort level between him and the players and I was looking for them to feel uncomfort after that horrendous 2010 campaign. There needed to be a major shake up, promoting the in-house guy was too knee jerk and it was a missed opportunity. That all ties in to the mental toughness issues we talked about a few pages back, the last thing a mentally weak team needs after a season like that is to feel a sense of comfort. When Garrett was named HC our underachieving lockerroom breathed a sigh of relief. The fact that we're still making the same stupid mistakes and blowing leads in mind numbing fashion has me worried that I am right.

    Anyway, Stanford Routt is set to visit Dallas this week according to Matt Mosley.
    I dunno about that... Garrett dumped a lot of "vets" before the season even began. He started his reign as head coach with an iron fist dumping a lot of guys who weren't earning their keep. Also, this was hardly a knee jerk hire. Had he been hired as our HC over Wade in the first place, then that would've been pretty knee jerk, but he was being groomed for this job and it started when he first got here. Your talk for needing a major shake up? Say hi to Rob Ryan. ;) That said, you don't get a major shake up on defense if all you do is add Elam and Coleman while keeping Newman and extending Spears. lol.

      Ahhh, the power of ESPN these days. Terrible.
      One game does not make a player. TheFinisher is right. It's about consistency, which is something you fail to see.

      BTW, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees go better than 8-8 on this team. What Romo did with this team... most any average middle tier NFL starter can do. Jason Garrett did about the same thing wtih Jon Kitna when he took over as interim HC.

        What do you mean? How does it not? Bradshaw is a new york giant and just talking about what he hears in the media. This "they don't believe in Romo" crap was garbage. Back in 2005 and 2006 everyone was calling for Eli's head and I doubt the "team believed in him" but look at it now?

        It's a joke.

          Actually, I doubt brady and brees going much better than 8-8 on this team. Romo probably avoided 25 sacks this season with his hoodini acts. They would get murdered. You forget that those guys get pampered behind there perfect pass protecting OL's. Brees at least.

            I get it now. You didn't read Bradshaw's quote right. He was only speculating on what the players in the Cowboys lockerroom thought. The same thing we all do. You don't need to be in the Cowboys lockerroom to have an opinion about them. By your own logic, you yourself have no substance to your own posts because you're not in the Cowboys lockerroom.

            I'm not saying Bradshaw is right, but he brings up a question mark many people have including me.

              Yeah that's because Romo doesn't make his reads fast enough and he holds onto the ball too long. There are different ways of looking at that picture bro.

                As for Janoris Jenkins at 14, it isn't happening. Broaddus has inside info in the organization and he said on the football show that they aren't going to pick him at 14. They want to get bigger at CB. If they pick a CB at 14 it will be Kirkpatrick. Depends on free agency and who else is on the board.

                Jenkins at 14 would be a mistake anyway. He's a solid CB but he's small and nothing spectacular. At 14 it would be terrible. Good thing they aren't going that direction.

                I really don't mind your post, but this kinda stuff makes it hard to even take you serious, and is the exact reason why people don't take Cowboy fans serious here. Guess I'm crazy in the fact that annoys me.

                Routt obviously wouldn't be the 4th CB on the depth chart but if we signed him I don't think he is good enough to warrant you changing your plans at the position, and if we like a guy at #14 at the position we still take him. Routt won't beat out Jenkins in base set, so he'd only be playing in Nickle and Dime sets, Scandrick has a decent size deal so if he out performs him that's exactly where he'll be.


                I don't know how the situation will play out but none of it has anything to do with Madden.


                As far as those "sources", that has nothing to do with it. I would just be hapy with him at the pick until I'm proven otherwise. I never said it will be the pick or that's who I'm expecting but right now I'm leaning towards him until the combines. I'd love Dre but doubt he makes it. If I had to take my choice it'd be Jenkins because I prefer the more pure, smooth cover CB, with better hips.


                The size is nice but it's not doing Antonio Cromartie any good. I always prefer CB's with better technique and hip swivel. It's just a preference for me. I could be absolutely wrong but Jenkins looks like a stud to me.


                I firmly expect him to go between picks 14-22. I don't think the value is off at all. Then again, I'm probably a bigger fan of addressing CB then most. Because while it does all start up front, I want more talent at he position.

But it wasn't happening and it didn't happen. I respect him a lot, but that said, he is getting way too much credit for turning around that Texans defense. I say the majority of the credit goes to their GM for significantly upgrading the talent level first and foremost. Any half way decent DC could do a good job with that defense. So I'm not going to be too quick to go above and beyond what I initially thought of Wade (which was high already).

                  It depends how you want to look at it. Did Wade have any input on those defenders? Then he gets even more credit. I know the GM's job and all, but with the transition, and Wade being head man in charge of the switch, I get the feeling he had both feet in on selection of defensive players. He got guys who he thought fit his scheme and while we don't know how much input, he very well could have hand picked alot of those rookie studs.


                  Then again, Wade has always ran great 3-4 defenses, but he does deserve a ton of credit for the fact that he kept them ticking at an elite level without their premiere pass rusher in the scheme. It also didn't take long to re-tool that secondary which was far worse then ours. I don't know that say, Rob Ryan does as good of a job there. Wade, when he can focus on just that side of the ball, can come up with some great schemes.

I'd love to see a poll in the NFL Topic thread on what percentage of posters thinks JG is just a Jerry Yes Man, because I think it'd be an overwhelming response and maybe open some eyes up in here to what unbiased fans are seeing from the outside.



                  I think he is a Yes Man, but also a solid Head Coach. I think anybody Jerry hires will be the same type of guy though, so I don't think there is anything we can do about it. Maybe Bill Cowher could get some Parcells type of power, but Jerry is still going to have his antics and answer report questions about injuries 100% honest on Tuesday before the head coach, and walk down on the sideline when he is in panic mode.

                  • Wait?...Bradshaw is the same RB to fumble in the NFC division game?
                    The same guy to fumble in the superbowl?
                    The same guy that nearly lost the game by falling into the endzone instead of kneeling on the 1?


                    Yea....That guys "clutch!" I want to hear more from him.

                        While I completely agree with you that Routt shouldn't change the plans at CB, it will. When does Jerry every get good overkill at a position? Barely ever. We never do things like what the Giants do with their DL. If we sign Routt, he will be a starter opposite Jenkins, with Scandrick as the #3, and I bet we don't go after our #4 until the middle rounds. That's just the way Jerry does it. One of his main faults is that he doesn't build on strengths.

                        I agree with you. I'd be all for Routt and then still taking Kirkpatrick at 14. But under Jerry we just won't do it. It's sad, but it's the truth.

                        As for Jenkins, he isn't going to be the pick. Broaddus knows people of value in the organization. He said they don't rate him that high and they want to get bigger at CB. If we pick him it will be in a trade down.

                        Anyway, I'm still on the Nicks bandwagon. If we land him and Arkin pans out we could be looking at a pretty nice OL for the foreseeable future. Smith and Free at the tackles, Nicks at one gaurd spot, and Arkin can take over for kosier by 2013. Anyone would be good enough at center with those four.

                            After reading over the past few pages, what has me laughing is the hypocritical nature of your resent posts regarding Romo and Rob Ryan.

                            You say Romo needs people around him and can't carry a team, but Rob Ryan is a "genius DC" who gets a pass because he has never had anything to work with....

                            So why the double standard? If anything, you're point has no validity because Romo is the farthest thing from the problem and has been a top 10 QB for the last 5 years, and Rob Ryan has never been on a team with a winning record and never had a team in the top 12 of points or yards per game. That's a joke. So he needs a better pass rush and secondary to win? I thought he was some genius? This defense made Rex Grossman, Matt Moore, and Kevin Kolb look like Montana is his prime in a 2 minute drive. Pathetic.

                            Again, just to let it sink in, Rob Ryan was the DC of all losing teams before this year were the Cowboys went 8-8, and never has had a unit finish in the top 33% of the league in yards per game, or scoring. And obviously his units aren't clutch/good at holding leads, so that isn't even a point against Romo, because Rob Ryan's units have blown more leads/games in the 4th quarter than Romo.

                            Let's just look to the Jets game. We were up 24-10 and the defense let Mark freakin' Sanchez go right down the field like we were butter in the 4th quarter and score to make it 24-17 with about 8 minutes left. Force a punt there and Romo's fumble and INT to revis don't even happen and we win the game. They gave up 2 TD's to calvin johnson against the lions too. We still had a 10 point lead after Romo's two pick 6's... what about that too?

                            I could go on and on. He's a loud mouth living on his last name and is an average coordinator. Now, he is good enough to win with with better players, which I will openly admit, but he's nothing special.

                            So, please do clarify your double standard regarding Romo and Rob Ryan.

                              I'll ride with Romo. He's a top 7-8 qb in this league. Those don't grow on trees.

                                Is he moving to RT for sure? I haven't heard anything official, but I'm slow with that kind of news since I come here for my news. LOL.
