  • Per rotoworld, Witten is going to see much more time at WR this season. Boy, was I right or what? I like that we,re trying to get the best players on the field no matter what. Owens, Crayton, and Witten at WR with Bennett at TE may be a bit better in certain situations than Owens, Crayton, and Hurd at WR and Witten at TE.

      I remember everyone on here, and I mean EVERYONE telling Rob "This isn't madden, you can't move Henry to FS, Roy to LB, and Spears to NT"

      Roy to LB has already happened in some packages and the other 2 are about to come to fruition.

      Even if that was the case, let's also not forget some of the ridiculous things he said right along with it...He makes some good points, and some horrible ones(too many to list), but he's far far away from being owed some sort of apology, that's not the way it works.

        Name one ridiculous thing I have said or for that matter horrible opinions. You are just spouting out of your nose in order to round up sympathy from the sycophants on the site.

        Fact is I told u so. Proving correct. Enuff said.

        By EOY 2006 ....
        Called Roy out.
        Called Henry to FS.
        Called Spears to NT.
        Called the speed upgrade at ILB as key (Zach and Burnett).
        Called Bradie over rated.
        Called the fact our DB Corps would need to be redone. Finally this off-season.
        Called Romo's breakdown of mechanics in the pocket -- particualrly in cold and/or wet weather. Finally this offseason I heard him acknowledge.
        Called the team spineless for its late season swoons.

        Still calling ....
        Kosier out.
        Austin to #2 if Glenn is done.
        Crayton or Hurd but not both at #3.
        Another WR -- preferably very tall -- is needed.
        Carp is being wasted for political reasons. Should be traded.
        Spencer was a wasted (thought talented) pick given Carp and Ellis.
        Stanback will never pan (unfortunately) at WR beyond a #4 or #5.
        2 OT in 2007 was a waste (had McQuistan in back up mode) -- take only 1.
        Felix is a talented but wasted pick given our options at 22.
        Bennet is a talented but wasted pick given Witten and we gave away Fasano.
        Tank is still a big fat question mark.
        Garrett will not win the big one unless he learns to run the ball consistently.
        Wade is over rated as a D guy and is a useless HC.
        JJ is a great owner but horrid player personnel guy.

        But no worries dog .... I still root for us on Sunday as much as the next fannie. Should be a good year but will be a put up or shut up year for alot of our alleged Pro Bowlers.

        • Geez, get over yourself.

          Most of the stuff you throw out there are just things you want to happen or things that everyone has been saying forever. You dont need to point out every little thing you get right all the time. No one really cares. You do this all the time. For everything you get right, you say 10 moronic things....but, you still go on and brag or gloat when you get one thing right. Sorry but, seriously...get over yourself.

            So let me see if I get your argument.

            You (and others) ban together to insult me and say I know NOTHING of football and now you want me to get over myself when ALL OF YOU are proving out incorrect in your football assertions?

            Nice. I think a few other posters here need to "Get Over Themselves" before I need to get on that line.

            ROTLFMAO! I just love to see you pom pom fannies eat crow. My only regret is unfortunately my observations takes seasons to play out in this A.D.D. world we live in.

              I just think it gets kind of old that you really cant seem to get over yourself. Just being honest.

                I just can't get over how little most of the alleged knowledgable fannies know about football.

                I, also, just can get over what little tolerance most of the alleged knowledgable fannies have to others differing opinions.

                I, also, just can get over how poorly most of the alleged knowledgable fannies read other posts.

                I, also, just can get over how passioantely most of the alleged knowledgable fannies make up things, say you said them, then rant and rave ad nauseum beating up an obviously silly idea.

                Just being honest!

                Austin over Hurd. In fact, Austin will become a number 1 if god willing Jerry Jones and Bob Big Boy don't interfere. He is so far the most impressive player in the OTA. Can't wait till all the folks sweating Stanback and Hurd have to see this kid play and break a few of those slant routes for 40,50 yards..

                      Pretty much, It gets old arguing with him over the same things, its like he wants a pat on the head for the correct things he said or something, I don't know, I thought he was like 45 years old and I don't know too many old men that have the need to feel that way but w/e...I have pretty much all of his alias' on ignore, much easier that way, I just let him talk to himself.

                        figured i might as well throw in my stuff.

                        In 2006 you said roy needed to move to LB. Well he was moved to the Rover position and was 2nd on the team in tackles...although his technique isn't solid...he was a big reason our run defense was stout...even if he was overrunning plays....so you've yet to be right about that,

                        In 2006 you said Henry needed to move to FS...which would have been nice...yet we didn't have the depth..and there weren't options to land them if you take a look back. So once again don't go ahead patting yourself on the back.

                        In 2006 you said Spears needed to play as a 2 gap NT...which while it made sense from the way he played on the outside...really didn't translate to the inside...the massive bodies in there are just too much for him. Sure he could have put on some pounds and maybe worked out...but unless your in there making the calls it was nothing more than a dream. Hell take a look at week 17...not saying it's the best example due to the whole outcome and playing tempo of the game...just saying it's where he saw his first real live action at NT...and he got buckled or shoved out of the hole more than his fair share...and that was in an explosive one gap scheme. So i'm not giving you credit there either.

                        ILB upgrade works for me....but not alot of zach thomas's floating around at the time..and we had just invested in Akin....so I'll let ya have this one...although it wasn't anything out of the norm.

                        Bradie overrated...is something this board can go back and forth on over and over again...but fact is he is leading the teams in tackles and has the respect of the players and coaches....now you don't get that without earning it in the NFL...so whether he is a overrated or not...really can't be picked out on a week to week basis to me....but then again I don't hold him as high as others do...I'll give you some people overrate him...but you could say that about any player anywhere imo.

                        Everyone and there mom has been calling for our DB corps to be upgraded...we haven't had a solid #2 corner till Henry got here...and he hasn't been able to stay on the field long enough to show us he can be that guy full time...but atleast it stopped the rotating door we had before...I'll say everyone thought this...so good job on calling it with the rest of us.

                        The Romo thing looks to be about the only thing that I can give you that either hasn't been agreed about or proven. It's a solid reasoning for his declined play in bad weather...although much could be said the same for about half the QB's in the league. Bottom line is you won't find a QB in this league that isn't working on his technique in the offseason...noone has perfect technique every throw...it's working it and revamping it...always trying to improve yourself....so until Romo can compete at a high level in the bad weather there isn't really anything i can say to change you from being right to a point.

                        On things to come...Koiser is wanted to be upgraded by everyone around here...so we can atleast all agree on something

                        I'm not buying Austin as a starting WR for the cowboys...but thats because I haven't seen it from him...sure he looks good in spandex...but where are the plays in live games...I haven't seen anything from him that makes me feel comfortable putting him on the field 50+ snaps a game....Hurd has shown me he can contribute on the field...and thats why I like him more than Austin...bottomline is...Austin this is year 3 put up or shut up now.

                        Me and you were about the only too I think that agree'd on the crayton or hurd. I still think reupping crayton was a bit much...and think we should have had more faith in our guys coming up to replace him....sure he is a good target...but I don't see the difference in play to have 2 similar players on the roster....could have brought us a big time WR FA or atleast a draft pick that could do something for us...although I'm not really a fan of the last draft class...a guy like Hardy would have been a lot more draftable to our team without the log jam at WR.

                        Not sure I agree with you on the tall WR thing....lots of teams do it without one...With Witten/Curtis/Bennett we have plenty of height to get the job done....hell if it was me I'd run a package with Pat Watkins outside and let him go up and get it...his ball skills and jumping abiltiy are as good as any WR out there from what i've seen from him on the field and in real life.

                        Carp is one of those classic guys that gets the shaft do to a new coaching change....hard to know how I feel. Sure I'd love to see him in a Vrabel roll for us on the outside...and I think he could be actually a tad better than Vrabel if given the time in a 2 gap scheme...but at the same time I think in Wades scheme Spencer is the far superior pass rusher. Not to mention has proven he can get to the QB successfully over the course of the game...something we never really got to see out of carp...in defense to carp he is being shuffled an awful lot...but I still have big hopes for him this year....you can't have that much talent on be on the bench....I wouldn't be surprised to see him getting some snaps with the 1st team defense this year...getting 10-15 snaps....while I think he should have more....he isn't an upgrade over Thomas and really doesn't have any other chance. The way I picture it is...if Carp can get 10-15 snaps on the defense...thats 10-15 more than he got last year a game....where will they come form you ask? With Burnett and Thomas playing in the nickel....which we should run more this year with Roy not getting in that special dime package...Thomas is going to be seeing a lot of snaps...and although he is a great player...I find it hard to believe that he is going to be seeing every snap at his age...like a player like Ware will be seeing....I wouldn't be surprised to see Carp get some spell opportunities this year...and we'll actually get to see him progress...hopefully this happens where we can get him in as our future at the WILB position and have Burnett as our nickel/dime guy...that gives about each backer 25-50 snaps a game not counting special teams...which is really a nice mix for 3 inside backers..as far as play making ability but still keeping them fresh.

                        Stanback is all upside....but I still don't get how you proclaim Austin to a starting WR..and stanback as no more than a 4-5 WR...I think that is why sometimes you rub people the wrong way...but hell Stanback has the look and the mind....so although he is the most raw of the bunch I still give him a chance to have a future here...but unlike Austin this is only year 2...and i'll be more critical of him next year to put up.

                        The 2007 OT thing was a mess....but it was a lot like this year....we got out guy in Marten...similar to this year with Jenkins....then later on a player was on the board who far outweighed his positions and we picked him up to solidify our future. Free was simply too good to pass up where we landed him...and Marten was our look for the future on the right side...now the funny thing is...is that Marten doesn't look to be panning out on the outside...but we get to try him on the inside...where he does have all the tools to work. If he turns out to be the future on the inside...then you almost just have to applaud and take a deep breath saying we got lucky. But hey nothing wrong with luck on your side.

                        I'm going to reserve my judgement on Felix....still to this day I think that Mendenhall should have been the guy. But I'll never say Felix was a bad pick.

                        No problems with what you said about Bennett....still don't understand why we give away Fasano then replace him with another guy. Fasano might not have had a place in big D...so i didn't have a huge problem with the trade before the draft...but I don't go replacing him with a 2nd round pick....I'd rather wait until the 2nd day and try to find a 3rd TE later. Hell I like Hannah a lot maybe I just don't even touch that position and get a hb type guy like Hillis was last year...I think that atleast made more sense.

                        Garrett will learn...I have complete confidence that he can be a great coach in the NFL.

                        Wade you can say what you want...but he gains the respect of his players...and players love to play for him...I love him as a HC....surround him with talented coordinators and he is almost the perfect guy to bring everything together....I love the fit right now. Sure his "well we won 13 games this year....or we had 13 pro bowlers this year" gets annoying but he is a good coach imo.

                        I'm not as hard on jerry as you are...but I think we've seen a smarter front office since parcells arrived...and who got the most out of it? IMO it was the other jones....in the past 3 years...since s. jones has been doing the majority of the contracts I've feel in love with almost all the moves....Terrence Newman was on cold hard facts the other day talking about his contract negotiations and about jerry...and the thing that was great is he said stephen was more of the figures guy now....which I think is why we've seen a bit more successful recent past...but thats just my hunch...

                          Crayton was only signed for four years, 14 million, I challenge anybody to find a WR on their second contract who has produced the way Crayton has as a 7th rd pick and makes less then that, that contract is literally scraps, how could anybody not be happy about that? I agree I wanted Hardy to, but your telling me you would of preferred we saved the pennies from that contract and let him walk, and be looking at TO, Hurd as a 2, and Austin as a 3? That's asking a bit much considering Austin hasn't shown up consistently in a real game.

                          As far as us bringing in a big time WR FA, which one are you talking about? They were all severely overpaid, every single one, money that would of been 4x what Crayton got paid, and made it tougher for Hamlin or Canty to be resigned...Even drafting a rookie I wouldn't trust throwing him right out there...Crayton is what he is, he isn't anything special, but it seems like he has been catching an enormous amount of flack for a bad playoff game, people are already overlooking how well he played vs the Packers when Al Harris couldn't cover him man to man on the outside(as was the case with alot of other corners), and why are we acting like he won't get any better? Remeber this guy was converted from a QB too, but everybody acts like he hit his ceiling already and another year in the offense won't help him improve greatly.

                          Yes you could argue we have some similiar type WR's, but how about letting those guys develop to Crayton's point where they can step in a game and make big catches as he did many times last year, we can't just expect to throw these guys out there because they look good at OTA's, or they have been around awhile.


                          I just don't see the problem with bringing Crayton back with that type of deal, if you could find me a FA WR who was signed for cheaper or remotely the same type of deal, who is under 30 and can compete the same then I'll buy that argument, but we should of made a run at Hardy regardless of what we did with Crayton, but his miniscule contract is nothing that should be harped on, its like we just want to toss aside the guy already, he only posted 700 yds and 7 tds as a 7th rd pick and has consistently gotten better, I guess he's not flashy enough to deserve to stick around.

                          • Check this out, they're doing a DVD about the greatest games in cowboys history and it'll have the original tv broadcast. That sounds totally awesome!

                            I'm not sure how to post a link but it's on dc.com.

                            • Things have been way too dead around here the last few weeks.

                              Other than the usual superstars like Romo, Barbarian, T-New, Ware, TO, etc. Which players are you most excited to see this year?

                              Me personally, it's the following: Spencer, Free, Watkins, Choice, Hatcher, Bowen.

                              • I'm not a country music fan but, apparently Bobby Carpenter plays a shirtless cowboy is some chicks music video. hahahaha. He was on First Take today, Patty Crayton was on yesterday. I honestly have no idea why they wanted Carp on their show. No offense but, I mean seriously.
