      Hall is giving up 10.8 yard per attempt. He has also given up a 40+ yard pass in 4 of his last 8 games.

      Gamble is at 11 yards per attempt.

      • My Two Round Big Board

        Round One
        1- Justin Blalock (won't likely be available...but OG don't go real early)
        2- Tank Tyler (Should be available later...has been great all year)
        3- Reggie Nelson (Probabally the best ball skills of all the safety)
        4- McCauley/Hughes (one will be gone by the time we pick)
        5- Michael Johnson (this guy is fast could jump to round one post combine)

        Round Two
        1- Ryan Kalil (showed in the bowl game he can produce)
        2- Tony Ugoh (he could play LT or RT...very balanced blocker)
        3- Tom Zbikowski (Couldn't be worse then Davis...contribute right away)
        4- Johnnie Lee Higgins (been UTEP's only weapon all year and been dominant)
        5- Steve Smith (Smart, polished, nfl ready, quick...I like that combo)

        Random Draft Thoughts
        Parcells just seems to be touting JJ's horn week in week out saying he is happy with the 31/29 split. I think if we have a team interested in JJ and Bush is sitting there we trade him. His contract comes up next year I believe...and he will be looking for good money. Personally I love Bush....if he works out good I would love to take a ticket on him.

        My new later round qb is none other then Kevin Kolb. A local prospect should allow us for good scouting. Not only that but the kid has showed up every game this year. Every Game. He has been solid his whole career...but hit a bit of a slump last year. This year he has been golden. Kept his team in every game...they lost 3 games and the biggest margin was 4. They lost to Miami by 3. Kolb is the main reason for that. He alway had a good int/td ratio. He threw 3 INT's all year and in those games they won by 42,17,20 points. He played efficient when he needed too. My only worry is...will he last till the 4th round or later...I don't know if we'll have a shot at him on the 2nd day.

        The OG isn't that great this year but it is rather deep. Guys like Grubbs and Beekman look like solid 2nd round guys. But guys like Sears/Young/Kalil are all guys who could play OG in the NFL. Not to mention if a guy like Arnold comes out from LSU...we all know how parcells likes them SEC players. It could get interesting to see how early we address this.

        You'll notice a couple of new names on my lists. Part of this is due to the fact that we are out of the range for guys like Ginn/Long/Baker Another fact is I got to watch alot of solid prospects in their bowl games.

          • It looks like every year Bill picks an LSU player.. Who do you think he will draft this year? I think that he will go for Landry in the first or Bowe in the second...

              We would have to trade up to acquire either player. Bowe is probabally a mid to early 2nd rounder depending on workouts...and Landry is a top 15 pick. I really don't see either of those players.

              I really like Will Arnold. I haven't heard a peep about if he is thinking of coming out early. But this kid has great size and is a pretty smart player. I could see us snag him off the board in the second round. Just look at him...looks like a Parcells OLmen.

              • Scott should read this article or at least the part concerning Columbo. It says he has only given up one sack to this point in the season and has not been called for holding once. I'm sure nothing will change his mind anyway, but it's a good read.

                  He did have that crappy block on the field goal that was blocked -vs- Washington, but I feel he's done an admirable job this year.

                  • Come on guys, let's show some more respect for the owner of the site.

                    How does everyone here feel about MBIII vs JJ? I personally feel that MBIII fits your system better.

                      I think MBIII is obviously the hot one right now, but we need both of them in there. JJ gives you that home run threat that MBIII lacks. And MBIII gives you that explosiveness and tough running that JJ lacks.

                      • Im not a big fan of homerun threats personally. MBIII runs for average, thats what you want. He puts you in 3rd and short situations, he keeps drives alive and takes time off the clock, and can be trusted in the goalline. With a power runner like him, he may not provide instant homerun ability like Jones, but after pounding a defense for 3 quarters, he'll break one in the 4th. I think your offense runs with much more efficiency with MBIII. If its a contract year for JJ, id let him go, he's not worth reinvesting into. You can find his replacement in the later rounds this year.

                        Ive always felt that unless you have a premiere RB, theres no point in resigning the one you got. Theres so many talented RBs in the draft each year, youre better off getting fresh legs.

                          How is the Kiwi one not a sack? It might not have been Colombo's fault but it was a sack.
                          I wrote a huge response to BBD's game breakdown yesterday, but when I submitted it to the site it got wiped out. I'm going to rehash it sometime this week, but you know how depressing it is when you spend a lot of time and effort on a post and it gets erased.

                          But anyhow, I wrote in detail about that "sack", and I find it funny that no one has brought this up, but it was a textbook case of the "tuck rule" that has become so infamous. Romo was moving forward, pumped the ball once, and never brought it back to his body, he took a step or two and was hit and the ball came out. According to the rule, which has been discussed ad-naseum on NFL Network, ESPN, and FSN, it should have been ruled as an incomplete pass. I am shocked that no one has picked up on this. I was freaking out watching the game as it happened. Just a blatant oversight.

                            Oh I disagree. He definately brought that ball back down to his body. The ball was below his shoulder after the pump when Kiwi hit it. How else could Kiwi hit it directly with a lowered helmet?

                            • Meh, the tuck rule is a bogus rule anyway. They never enforce it, it was arguably one of the worst calls in playoff history, no one ever calls the tuck rule. I personally feel it was a fumble, I can't say for 100% because I need to see a replay, but I saw no indication the first time how it would not be a fumble.

                              Did anyone else notice TO pull a Plaxico on Romo's 2nd INT? I know it was way overthrown, but he couldve tried to tackle Demps or something, he just stopped and put his hands down.

                                That is not the rule. The rule states that the quarterback must bring the ball into his body and "tuck it in" between his torso and arm. In theory, the QB can pump once, then run around for 35 seconds in the pocket, get hit, and fumble and it would still be an incomplete pass. Once the motion of the arm has started forward, the QB is considered to be in the act of passing until the ball is gone or he tucks it away. There is no arguing this. It wasn't even close.

                                I agree that it's a bogus rule, and I agree that (judging by intent) it should have been a fumble. But according to the rules the game is played by it was an incomplete pass, and not only did they miss the call, but I haven't heard it mentioned anywhere over the last couple days. It's almost like it never happened. Supposedly, the reason why they don't change it is because of an inability to write a rule that is pratical enough to enforce in a game. It has been looked over time and time again, and they refuse to change it. Fine. But it should be called fairly, and I believe that the NFL should issue the Cowboys an apology for missing what could have been a critical call in a huge game after they have gone to such lengths to justify not only the validity of this rule, but the importance of it as well. It's BS.


                                Yes, I did notice T.O. loafing it on that one. It happens all the time with WR. Plax isn't the only one. But it isn't the same as what Plaxico did at Tennesee. He was in position to actually prevent the Int, whereas TO was only able to save his team a chunk of yards. Still, not something you want to see out of your 10mil per year WR.
