    How about Ratliff? He was really getting pressure all game. What's the knock against him as far as being a DT is concerned? Too small?
    He's not really built to be a 3-4 DT and play more than a few plays. He has a great body type to be a 3-4 DE or nickel DT, however.

      I agree Ratliff is really good, he was an absolute steal in the 7th round! I'm not sure if he's really big or strong enough to play NT but he is great as a nickel pass rusher.

        I don't think a starting role for him would be the best for our team. I like what we did today having 4 differen't guys play to two positions and mix everything up. Bill wanted to get the outside guys fresher and now he has a mix that can do that.

        Now all we need is a backup DT who can also play in the nickel and we'll have a complete front 7 with role players for every spot.

          I wouldn't be surprised if that streak ended today.
          You mean that 9 game win streak.

          I would trade a TD against Newman for a win today without flinching.
          Don't flinch now...

            He is a little small for NT, but prefect for the DE in the 3-4 scheme. But I do believe he is 2nd NT on the depth chart.

            • What you guys think of Carps play. I think he looked pretty good when he was in. He was definitely showing some real effort and hustle during the game.

              • I actually think Flo did ok after that one terrible whif of Freeny's sack. I'm sure Flo got revenge with his run blocking which he obviously has a big advantage in that regard. I think the entire o-line played pretty well actually all things considered although Romo's mobility obviously helps.

                  I agree, Colombo especially, looked very good.

                    Hard to say. At least he showed up a few times when he played today. I expect we'll see a lot more of him in the weeks to come. It was for times like this that I didn't criticize that draft pick too much. I didn't think we could go a whole season without a major injury to the LBs.

                      He seemed pretty active, I think he applied some pressure on the pass rush a little bit but I'm not sure he had a tackle. Having said that though I'm definitely not questioning or criticizing the pick anymore, although I don't think I was really overly critical of him or that the criticism wasn't deserved at that time.

                      • Did anyone see Romo give Peyton that tap on the helmet after the game, as if to say, "Too bad, but better luck next time, buddy!" ?

                        We've created a monster.

                          He's not really consistent yet, but he physically outplayed the guy across from him. I think it will take about 4 games for him to start making a bigger impact.

                            That probably last 5 minutes until Parcells reminded him of his pick and the one that was dropped.

                            • I know this sounds kinda dumb but if you take away the INT and the near INT Romo played as close to perfect as you can. He made some really big time throws there at the end, the kind of throws you were expecting from Manning.

                              There's no doubt in my mind that Terence Newman and Anthony Henry deserve to go to the pro bowl, they're playing as close to perfect as CBs can.

                                It wasn't a flashy game, but if you QB only has 4 incompletions you're doing pretty good.
