    To Ward: Was that response necessary? I think Al Davis is as bad as Jerry. You seemingly disagree. That is fine but I would leave it at that "Mr Moderator." PS, Moderator comes from the word "Moderate," try adhereing to it.

    To Poet: Yes, I dislike him and I do think Al Davis is 10x the owner and contributor that Jerry is. Al Davis is a football man and Jerry is not. Al played a very important role in creating this league. Just like Joe Namath, Hunt and a few others from the AFL days.

    Great news on MS. Thanks for the update guys. Have a great evening.
    Perhaps at one point Al Davis was a credible football guy. I don't deny that. However, the fact that the Raiders are the worst team in the NFL by a large margin with no end in sight really errodes any credibility he has.

    The Cowboys under Jerry Jones have been everything from Great to Good to Average to Below average. They haven't been the laughing stock of the NFL like the Raiders.

    History has it's place, but you cannot discount the relevance of the more recent history over that of the distant history. The game has passed Al Davis by. His FA strategies, his offensive strategies and his coaching hires are pretty clear in that regard.
    LSU, recent History has Al in the Super Bowl and winning playoff games. Not Jerry.

    Going forward into 2007 -- yeah, Jerry has a better shot of figuring it out than Al. Al looks really really bad and just does not seem to have the energy to get it done. I would even bet he may have some mental health issues. He just looks horrible.

    Hope Jerry gives Wade, Singletary and Garrett the wheels soon. This would be my dream team for 2007.
    Keep dreaming...We don't get Singletary without Norv.

        To reiterate this, based on this new information.

        a) If you take Singletary, I will hate you all
        b) If you take Turner, I will DESPISE you all
        c) If you somehow take them both, I will personally kick Jerry Jones in the junk. Multiple times.

        STAY AWAY FROM OUR COACHES!

          Even if Nelson will be gone before we pick, I think that selecting Griffin at #22 is not a reach at all. Griffin is one of my favorite players in this draft and we can pick OL help in round 2 and 3..
          I have no doubt that we'll solve our RG problem via free agency.. There are too many god guys not to sign one.. If we sign a guard, resign Gurode and Colombo we just need to draft for depth on offense..
          On defense our only need is a FS. Yes, the pass rush was a huge problem this year, but we have a lot of talent on the d-line and linebackers position, we just need good coaching..
          About Watkins, I see his potential, but I don't think that the new HC will have any trust in him.. Jerry Jones has already shown that he wants a new FS, and I really don't believe that a new HC, looking at this season could be a supporter of Watkins.. We need a replacement for Woody, I don't think Watkins is the answer.. I've said that many times, if he was playing good in coverage why he came out in the nickel package? Nate Jones and Roy Williams were playing safety in the nickel..

            either way, go ahead and kick jerry in the nuts. but getting both coaches would be amazing for the cowboys. Jerry should go for both

              Did I miss something? How the hell did you get all those people to even care about Mike Singletary coming to the cowboys?

              • Am I the only one who doesn't like Turner as HC. I just don't see that leadership ability in him. He was being called out as a uninspiring and repetitive by some of his former players, and had little respect from the Redskins and the Raiders. Now, he did have a-holes for owners at both stops, but I still have my doubts of him as a HC. I will say, Troy and some of the other Cowboys from the 90's seem to really respect him and believe in him to be a great HC, so maybe will fare better here. But I don't know, I'm just a little skeptical.

                  No, I believe there are several of us that don't want him as HC. He already failed twice at that position, why make it a third? I'm all in favor of bringing in Singletary as HC though.

                    • Griffin is more of a SS, I think if you guys want a FS that badly (which I disagree with), you would probably go after Merriweather since he fits the FS bill better than Griffin.

                      I like Griffin alot, and I think he'll be a great player, but he doesn't fit in your scheme, he's a SS.

                      But seriously, I said a million times already, a FS will not fix the issues of covering the TE. I'll leave it at that because I don't want to drag this convo out again.

                      More importantly, Pat Watkins did a good job last year. He was a rookie guys, rookies get beat. He really came on at the end of the year, and I think he'll do a fine job if given a chance. You can't throw in the towel on somebody who is as physically gifted as Watkins so quickly, especially when they were raw coming out and learning quickly. He'll be fine. Heck, Watkins is gifted enough to play both safety positions I think. He has the speed and wingspan to be a good ballhawk, he also has the tenacity and aggressive nature needed for a SS. He can cover the TE because he matches up length and wingspan wise very well with them. He also has the speed to matchup with the TE.

                      Come to think of it, if you guys didn't have Roy, it would work very well. Id move Pat to SS and get a FS. Pat I feel can do a better job in coverage as a SS than Roy, and Pat is no slouch against the run either. Remember, when he was starting he led the team in tackles, so obviously he is a good run stuffer. Yeah, he doesn't "hammer" anybody, but who the hell cares. I think if Roy continues to struggle, he should be designated LB rover in the nickel package, and benched in favor of Watkins at SS in the 3-4, thats if you guys nab a FS.

                      BP always says to unbias yourself and look at the performance and judge players based on performance, and not who they are. If you look at it that way, it wouldn't be that farfetched to do what I just proposed.

                      • listening to Talkin' Cowboys on DallasCowboys.com. Bill Jones and Mickey Spagnola are just assuming Singletary is being interviewed to satisy the Fritz Pollard Alliance. Not making it sound like he will be hired whatsoever.

                          I thought by interviewing Bowles that this was covered.

                            Many around the league were critical of the Bowles "interview" as not meeting the spirit of the Rooney rule. That being said I still believe there is more to this than a token interview. Jerry just didn't all of the sudden pull Mike Singletary's name from nowhere. You have to believe Norv wants him as the DC. Barring a complete block by the 49ers, I believe he is selling the DC job to him as we speak, but I guess all will be revealed in the next 24 hours or so as all reports point to Jerry naming his new coach before leaving for the Super Bowl on thursday.

                              Wasn't someone banned for repeating this thought?

                              Not sure I agree but it has its merits. SS need to cover TEs and Roy has his problems with this.

                              Good post if controversial. Meriweather and Watkins as safeties would improve our coverage skills drastically.

                                A little more on this ..... Jerry is getting hammered for Bowles and Singeltary because ...

                                a) He ignored the spirit of Rooney Rule in the Parcells hiring and in fact went ahead with interviewing Dennis Green even AFTER he met Parcells. Why he did it is obvious.

                                b) Bowles is an Asst that NO ONE thought seriously of for the HC job. He might as well have interviewed every Black QC coach in the league to "check off the box."

                                c) He picks a guy in Singletary to interview for HC with a brand name, buzz and inflated title in SFO but fact is he was only a "green" LB coach whose next logical progression is DC.

                                d) Jerry has no blacks of mention in the organization. But he does have three children with jobs.

                                Tricky Tricky Jerry trying to get around league policies again and subverting a key goal of the league to increase participation of African Americans in management and coaching.
