  • Jerry's giving a interveiw tonight. Jones also hinted at running back Marion Barber's return to the backup roll in 2009 with second-year back Felix Jones starting. Per BTB. What do you think about Felix being the starter?

      That would be a great decision. Barber's running style doesn't allow him to play at his best if he is consistently getting 25-30 caries. The best thing to do would be to get the young cat Felix out there, and then allow barber to deliver the bang in the 4th quarter, with some Tashard choice mixed in there.

      • I would love Felix starting...Marion back in that closer role would be fantastic. The fact that Chris Johnson did so well in a starters' role probably helped our guys make a decision like this as well...if it does happen.

          BTB? You have a link of that, sounds interesting to me...I'd actually love that as long as Choice can get a few carries also, but Felix can start, he's shown what he can do and he may be more of a home run threat then Chris Johnson.


          I just want to make sure Jerry is going to committ to that, or if he's just thinking about it.

            "In an interview with CBS 11 Sports at the new Cowboys stadium Thursday afternoon, Jerry Jones said the decision on whether Terrell Owens would be on the 2009 Cowboys team has NOT yet been made."

            • Good stuff, interesting about TO also, is Jerry just trying to keep the media guessing or still deciding? I don't see the big deal, if you want TO stop the speculation and tell people so they can move on, I just don't get that one.


              But I love the talk of the Rb rotation, we have arguably the best 3 back rotation in the league and Felix + Barber is a helluva combo, utilize all those guys, as long as Garrett gets Felix his touches this season I'm all for it.


              Hopefully Felix doesn't have any injury lingering and he comes back much better then what we last saw...But just guessing, but if he starts he won't be doing KR anymore probably right? They were scary enough as it is to put him back there if he starts I doubt it.

              • Yeah...we better get ourselves a great kick returner this off-season if we plan on taking those duties away from Felix. If he's starting, he wont be returning kicks, that's for sure. Too much work for an offensive starter and of course too risky. Miles will more than likely hold down one of the spots but, we could use a primary return man. Miles wasnt even that good last year and Stanback may not be on the active roster or team with Sam Hurd returning.

                • I don't like the idea of Felix starting. He's best when he has fresh legs and can come in and surprise the defense with big plays. If the idea is to make Barber "the closer"... I don't really like that label... makes it seem like he's only useful as a 4th quarter back. Limiting his carries more is fine by me, but he needs to be used all throughout the game. So with that said, I think Choice should start and then Felix or Barber can come in depending on how the offense wants to change things up.

                    I think it would be a lot like the Julius/Marion deal. Marion certainly wasnt going to waste and even though, Felix would start...There would probably be plenty of games where Barber was getting the ball more. Felix has a better build to start than Chris Johnson does and Chris showed that he could handle it no problem. Felix should be fine if given this opportunity. It pretty much makes us the Titans but, with a much better bruising back coming in off the bench...and then there is Choice.

                    As for limiting carries...I think Felix should be getting the ball a hell of a lot more than Choice. If your scenario unfolded...Felix wouldnt be looking at a great deal of carries probably or less than Tashard. We need to get the ball in Jones' hands as much as possible, imo.

                      I think Marion Barber is way over paid.

                        The DMN blog made a post about how maybe one cowboy would make the superbowl back in the conference championship game...but I didn't really commit that to memory I guess.

                        • Wow...In one day we trade Anthony Henry.

                          I'm fine with this...although what is the big deal with Kitna...I understand he plays with a lot of heart and his teammates like him...but we could have gotten equal talent imo without trading for a guy.

                          Brooking. Wow....all I got to say is I can't believe we made this move....what the hell are we gonna do if Burnett leaves...our nickel package will have Brooking in it? Christ that sounds awful....I absolutely hate this signing...another locker room signing which is ok...since he was cheaper than Ray Ray....but he is worse in coverage than Bradie is....and I'd rather have Zach Thomas in reality.

                          • I don't think the Brooking signing means a whole lot. It gives us a veteran guy that can play the position, rack up a few tackles and nothing more. I wouldn't expect his liability in coverage to be much of a concern since he probably won't be on the field on obvious pass situations.

                            I think the Anthony Henry trade was more of a salary dump than us liking Kitna. I've been saying for quite a while that i would have gotten rid of him a lot faster, and i think that's what Jerry and the crew did. He was making a whole lot of money to get beat like a rag doll in coverage.

                              ....who is going to play in passing situations?
