        Here's a news story that isn't getting alot of press.

        Everyone thinks that Parcells didn't want TO and Jerry did. There really hasn't been any indication that this is the case at all. They've both been on the same page from Day 1 about TO. So I think that is probably a false rumor.

        The story that hasn't gotten any press that intrigues me alot is the Drew Bledsoe v. Romo issue as it pertains to Jerry Jones and Bill Parcells.

        Here are the things that make me say hmmmmmmm.....

        Tony Romo is brought in during BP's first year along with Henson in BP's second year. BP immediately seems to take a disliking to Henson, but seems to favor Romo. JJ's boy is definitely Henson. BP sticks with Testeverde almost out of SPITE by not getting Henson any real playing time even when the cowboys are out of the playoff race.

        The cowboys bring in Bledsoe and stick with Romo and Henson as the backups. Romo is BP's guy, Henson is JJ's. The question is then, is Bledsoe BP's guy or JJ's. I used to think it was BP's but I think maybe JJ wanted him just as bad if not worse b/c JJ knows that having a 'name' at QB is good for a franchise. JJ hates the idea of rebuilding. BP knew that transitioning to a 3-4 was rebuilding and yet he brought in Bledsoe? Hmm....

        Cowboys are criticized for not drafting a QB and for not playing Henson. Yet, in 2005 Romo takes over the #2 spot. Henson is essentially shown the door by year end in 2005. (now here's where my 'grassy knoll theory' starts to take shape). BP knows he's stuck with Bledsoe because JJ doesn't want to 'throw away 2006' by going to the 'rookie' QB to start the season. BP gets irritated, thinks of retiring. JJ and BP have a 'sit down' meeting where BP basically says that Romo should start. JJ thinks Bledsoe is the way to go. BP and JJ come to a compromise, where JJ says 'look, we'll go with Bledsoe to start, but if he struggles we'll go with Romo'. As part of this compromise, BP convinces JJ that he needs 1 more year to make this work, so JJ gives him an extension through 2007. BP likes this idea because he figures Romo will play alot in 2006 (knowing that Bledsoe will struggle and Romo will be playing by mid-season). He also knows that first time starters may struggle too. BP is, despite the mass theories, setting up the team to be contenders in 2006, but knows that 2007 is the SUPER BOWL year.

        Fast forward to NFL DRAFT 2006. BP builds the defense, knowing that with a young QB he'll need a dominant defense to minimize the chances the QB will have to take.

        Training camp. Rumors fly from Peter King that Romo will be the starter in 2006. King is a good friend of BP. BP plants this seed knowing that it makes the QB switch easier mid season. BP knew going into the season that Bledsoe wasn't going to take him to the super bowl. BP also had to appease JJ by not 'throwing away 2006' and honoring his compromise with JJ. BP also knows that once the change is made, his plan is in motion. After the switch BP is rejuvinated b/c everything has worked perfectly and he sees 2007 as the SUPER BOWL year.

        BP will be back in 2007, I guarantee it.


        Anyway, that's my theory and I'm sticking to it.

            Do you think it's a coincidence that Romo plays in Dallas and JFK was killed in Dallas? Hmmmmm.......

              What happened to the thread????

              Your theory is interesting, LSU. I think Parcells will want to see this Romo "experiment" through. I think he'll be back next year.

                If the draft were held tomorrow...

                1) Best OT or OG available - I'd be very happy w/Blalock
                2) OG - that line still needs a lot of help
                3) BPA - preferably either a FS, speedy WR or good NT

                Those are my thoughts as to where we need the most help. Oh yeah, and maybe a good kicker too, but I doubt we'd ever draft one.

                    Love the theory LSU! If I were teaching Creative Writing you'd get an A+. haha jk. It's interesting, but that's too much for me to buy.

                    I do believe BP will be back. I think he's planning to win the SB this year. Whether he does or not is irrelevant, but I honestly bellieve he's planning and playing this game to win now.

                          Blalock is Larry Allen except Allen could play LT as well.

                            I would say Blalock or bust for OG. OT seems to be quite a bit deeper than OG at this point, so I would feel safer waiting for an tackle.

                            after that I think the biggest need would be an NT. I must admit I don't know much about them for this draft. Anybody know some good NTs that would be around in the 3rd or 4th round?

                            For WR I am going to be a homer and say we should look at Laurent Robinson late in the draft. Really I know we have several recievers that are similar type receivers, but when ever I watch him I cant help think Larry Fitzgerald. This is a guy that could have easily shot up in the draft had he been healthy this year.

                            One thing i don't like is our running back situation. I like Jones as the feature back, and Thompson for his kickoff returns. I also think Barber is a solid number two and third down back. The problem I have with this is I would like a better power runner somewhere in there. Barber runs hard, but I wouldn't really consider him a power back. I feel like we are locked into this running back group though, I doubt Barber goes anywhere. I would love to get Brian Leonard at FB though. After watching him tonight I would have no problem trusting him to block, and he he has shown he can run the ball and catch as well. He would be a damn good 3rd down back himself.

                              I think I really have a different opinion on a NT than everyone else. Instead of getting a big guy like Ferguson, I think we should get a Glover type player. Probably not that small, but what I mean is an average-sized guy who is quick and has high energy. He would maybe rotate a couple series a game in the base defense and also play a lot in the nickel. It would allow for more pass rush out of the base set, create different mismatches, and also allow us to change to the nickel defense easier.

                              Ferguson has some tread left on his tires so I think we should find a compliment for him and then look for a replacement next year or in the future.
