    • Ok, some of the comments from people that I respect on this board are completely off base. I have no idea why, but your information is just plain wrong.

      First - On the secondary / interception issue. Dallas is #8 in the NFL in INTs at 14. 16 INTS would be good enough for 4th place, it's not as if Dallas isn't doing a good job of intercepting the ball, in fact, Dallas' Defense is 4th in the entire NFL at causing turn overs. Compared to say Washington which is dead last.

      Second - regarding the OL. Dallas is #8 in the NFL in total rushing yards (without a rushing QB like Tennessee and Atlanta to skew the stats btw). Dallas is 2nd in the NFL in rushing TDs. Dallas is 4th in the NFL in passing yards. Dallas is 15th in the NFL in Sacks allowed, despite the fact that Bledsoe took a disproportionate amount of sacks at the position than most NFL quarterbacks.

      If it's known that Dallas doesn't have a feature back like LT, LJ or Emmit Smith. It's known that TO drops too many passes and Witten had been underperforming early in the season. It's known that Romo is an inexperienced QB. Now, how can anyone know all this, and look at the statistics and then conclude that the OL is a major problem?

      If Shaun Alexander and LJ are said to be successful b/c of their OL. If Denver's RB's are given no credit because of the OL. If Edgerrin James is given a pass b/c the OL is bad in Arizona, then how does the Dallas OL get so little respect? The bottom line is that the OL is not only not bad, it's actually GOOD.

      READ WITH ME - the Dallas OL is GOOD. It's not a weakness of the team. The facts are hard to bear for some people but they are indeed facts.

      You cannot conclude the Rushing proficiency is due to a stud back. You cannot conclude that the WR's are destroying teams. You cannot conclude that John Elway is the QB so the OL doesn't matter. You have to conclude that either ROMO is the best QB in the game (which is a silly conclusion) or that the OL is indeed Good.

            Just want to clarify a couple of things.

            1. The team does a good job at INTs, but most are from the LB core. How many of those INTs are attributed to your corners? Probably less than 40%, which goes back to my statement that the corners play the man and not the ball. The LBs in your scheme primarily hover in the middle and play a zone, so theres a chance for INTs, but the secondary does not get many INTs. I probably shouldve specified this, I made the error of attributing their lack of INTs to the entire defense, and I was incorrect for doing that.

            2. The oline. The oline has played well since Romo came in. Ive stated before that Bledsoe has made this oline look much worse than it really is. In fact, he's made every oline he's played with look much worse than it is. But at the same time, Romo is one of the best qb's in the game at buying time. He's very elusive. He is on the opposite spectrum, he makes them look better than they really are. I personally think theyre a middle tier oline, not the best, not the worst.

            3. The oline isn't bad, no doubt. But looking at this team, what other needs do you really have? You have a solid WR core. Im not sold on WR as a need, I think Crayton is solid at the 3 spot, and you can get later round WRs to fill an injury void if need be. RB is good with the 1, 2 punch you have. Defense is set in all positions except FS, but its too early to give up on Watkins, and with the safety depth in this draft, one can be had in round 2. So what else is there to draft? Ive said it before, and I'll say it again. You can never have TOO much oline. For a team with really no key areas of concern, I think drafting an olinemen in round 1 makes perfect sense. And an OG in round 3 in a draft rich in OG talent would make perfect sense too. Middle tier oline is good, but a top tier oline is even better. In a game decided in the trenches, why not go for it?

              Stats are like bikinis... they show some things, but not all.

              LSU, pull that bikini down and you'll see what we see!

                1. OG - Justin Blalock - if he gets taken early we need to go NT or skill
                2. CB - Marcus McCauley - would definetly be a quick contributor
                3. S - Reggie Nelson - Nelson has natural skills that noone can be taught
                4. NT - Tank Tyler - can sure up our d-line and give us youth across the board
                5. WR - Sidney Rice - perfect blend of size and speed

                Im not sold on tossing JJ out just yet. I think this is just a hot topic at the time, because of the fact that Barber is getting all the press. I like having the 2 to switch the running styles and keeping defenders guessing. I'd like to see us grab a QB late to add te depth we need. On day one I'd see us grab at least one skill and maybe a NT. Im looking for them to grab an OL from FA and an OL on day-one of the draft. If it doesnt look like a situation where we are gonna get a NT we should go back to the skill spots.
                Have you seen McCauley play? Or are you basing this off "experts" opinions? Just asking.
                Mostly off rankings, I hate making these boards so early because I like to see what these guys do at the combine/school visits then make one accordingly. I really think we need a young CB to plug in before Glenn leaves though. Where do you stand on CB?

                  • For me at CB, I am very high on Jonathan Wade from Tennessee. He plays very well, and he's going in the mid-rounds. Big steal IMO. I really want him.

                          TO has alligator arms. Most have his drops have been when he loses concentration on the ball either looking for a hit upfield or expecting one. It's very easy to have happen. Being a wide reciever myself, the hardest thing is keeping your eye on the ball going across the middle. But..it's something a NFL superstar reciever should be able to to. Even if you watch replays of the ones that a hit was not coming, you can see his eyes are upfield rather on the ball. It's something I hope Haley is trying to correct..But hey, hes top 5 in almost every NFC WR catagory, so I'll take the drops..for now.

                          Now that I'm on the topic of WR's...
                          If you can find it, watch the video of Terry Glenn getting of the line on his deep in against the Giants. I watched it on NFLNetwork. Unbelievable how quick he is. I love him. Top 3 or 4 number 2 recievers in the league without a doubt. He seems to be stronger this year too, more power after the catch...when he decides to run with it. Both him and TO have been blocking tremendously downfield.

                          Patrick Crayton keeps impressing me. He makes tremendous catches, and his concentration is what TO should watch tape of. Takes contact and RARELY drops balls. On the out that was almost intercepted by Wilson, his concentration was amazing to be able to catch that ball after seeing it go through a players hands. He's a natural hands catcher, unlike TO. Also blocks well. Great learning curve for a "QB/WR/Return Specialist" coming out of college. Plays like a vet. I belive that it was him blocking on that big swing pass to Glenn.

                          Miles Austin is close to breaking one on a kickoff. I thought losing Tyson Thompson was going to be a huge loss, but im liking Austin more and more every week. Big, strong, fast. HUGE calves. "Goofy" according to Parcells (rookie awareness). We had great field position against NYG off kickoffs. A MAJOR factor in our win.

                          Sam Hurd=lucky. Twice this season he's been in the right place in the right time and has had a HUGE impact on the game. The recoveries against the Panthers and of Kiwi's fumble were huge.

                            I diagree, he goes directly to the sidelines, he doesnt run down the middle of the field. He has been great but, he wont take any back for 6, not with his style. I'm still very happy with him.

                                Yeah thats what I thought until I watched it over again. I may be wrong, but it looks like hes trying to find a seam and he keeps stringing it out towards the sideline. When he does find one, he usually gets through it and then starts toward the sideline again. I feel like if a team doesn't collapse down towards the sideline enough he will have one man to beat and then open sailing. IMO 4.47 speed should be enough to not get caught. It's just a feeling I had watching some of those returns. It's different than the Patrick Crayton "I caught the punt now im running right at the sideline" kind of return (granted, a kick return. But I felt the need to express how much I hate Crayton's PR style) for sure. He's looking to get upfield I think, and presses to the sideline to try to find a gap. May be wrong though.
