Thanks MOTH. Seems we are in for a severe bind on the FA front.

First we need to figure out who our UFAs are, if any.

Then try to guess who would be signed away, if any.

My hunch is... None.

I doubt we lose Spears. We'll probably tender him at the 2nd round level (maybe 3rd) and lock him up for cheap next year. The guy has gotten a lot of grief, but he's settled into a very solid, steady starter for us who can be relied upon to do his job. At this point we can give up on him ever making his mark in the passing game.

Its funny how this team has found a way to make up for every high priced or early round gaffe by hitting big on a low cost option.

Whiffed on Roy Williams, hit big on Miles Austin. Whiffed on Spears, hit big on Ratliff. Whiffed on Carpenter, hit on Brooking. Whiffed on Al Johnson, salvaged and hit big on Gurode who was on the verge of getting cut. Whiffed on Julius, hit big on Barber. Whiffed on Jacob Rogers, bit big on Colombo. And the big one, whiffed hard on Drew Henson, slammed it out of the park on Romo.

I think it may have something to do with their ability to find good talent in mid to late rounds, and in FA. When you look at this team you see tons of talent, but look at how many mid rounds or FA guys are paying dividends here. I think the whiffs are results of......well I guess you can just call them bad moves. Every team has them though, and this team is good because they have been limited.

Or is it possible that all the most expensive decisions (top picks, big name FA) are all made by Jerry himself since it is his money. While the Henson deal wasn't very expensive, we still lost on that Jerry gamble. Meaning, on all the stuff the FO gets to actually decide on, they do well.

This is just one possibility.

No, not really. The only one i guess you can really put on Jerry is the Roy Williams trade, but then again you have to really imagine that the FO had a hand in that deal as well.

Barbie, Al Johnson, Julia Jones, Spears, Stephen Peterman and Jacob Rogers were all Parcells' guys. Not to mention all the Bruce Thorntons and Skyler Greens of the world.

And remember that Parcells collaborated with Jerry on that trade out of the first round when we could and should have taken Steven Jackson. We were trotting out Richie Anderson, Aveion Cason and Troy ************* Hambrick the year before, and all of us were hoping and praying for the Patriots and Broncos to pass on RBs, and after Jackson who had already mentioned he'd love to come play in Dallas fell to our lap, they felt the need to back out. ****.

Cowboys lose Grantham to Georgia

Cowboys defensive line coach Todd Grantham has bolted for Georgia, where he'll become the Bulldogs' defensive coordinator.

Parcells had his fair share of hits and misses, but for some reason, he gets a free pass on his misses while Jerry's mistakes are magnified. I don't get why some people do that. Does the media feed that into their minds? BP is a HOF coach! He can't do no wrong! Jerry is a businessman, not a football man... He doesn't know WTF he is doing!

... I really think people think that... and they can't get over the fact that Jerry got rid of Jimmy. To this day, he gets crucified for it. It amazes me. What has Jimmy ever done outside of Dallas? Troy Aikman was a Jerry call. Steve Walsh was a Jimmy call. But people give all the credit to the talent acquisition to Jimmy (who did well, not discrediting that), but it was a partnership.

I absolutely love BP, but I'm not going to preach that he didn't have many mistakes in his gambles. Especially on the OL. He could not draft an OL to save his life. Our OL today is a credit to Jerry. Flozell, Gurode, Davis, Free... all Jerry picks. Kosier and Columbo trace back to BP, but this is Kosier's first really good year. ha. The way we acquired Columbo was pure greatness, so I gotta give BP credit for that. Bottomline, BP whiffed a lot and gets by.

I'd even say BP whiffed 50/50 on our DL. For every Ratliff (6th) and Canty (4th), there was a Spears (1st), Hatcher (3rd), Montavious Stanley (5th?).... BP whiffed on those earlier picks too. Not just Jerry.

BP also got rid of Jerry guys... Antonio Bryant... Obviously Jerry was right when he evaluated that talent. BP tried to overwrite Gurode at C when he took Al Johnson... then realized he was wrong and Gurode eventually took back his natural position. Austin was brought in during the Parcells era, but Parcells certainly didn't develop under Parcells. That was the Wade era through and through.

We love crucifying BP for passing on Steven Jackson, but he did bring us Barber, so yea. Props there.

BP never got our secondary right. First off, he didn't want Newman... Secondly, he brought in Henry. I liked Henry in the beginning but injuries derailed him. So I can't fault that. Roy was definintely Jerry's guy... So bomb Jerry on that one. But Jaques Reeves was a BP guy. As was Watkins, Beriault, Thornton, etc... BP never was an advocate of addressing our secondary properly. He was all about the front 7.

The lesson is that hits and misses happen. No one should get a free pass on their misses, and no one should get more credit than they deserve on hits. Jerry gets bashed too much. BP gets praised too much. When people look at the truth of the matter, a more balanced opinion is formed.

Don't forget about the POS Nate Jones. Parcells also hated Dat Nguyen, and he was a stud for us, even in BP's scheme.

Also D, getting Barber is not enough for passing on Jackson. SJax is 10x the RB MBIII ever was, and with a way smaller workload both in college AND the NFL, Barber is already showing signs of deterioration. I don't think it's even close.

LL just said that people here give up on guys too quickly. I do the same from time to time, but I can't help but think you're doing that to Barber. Ya'll know that I'm a big Barber supporter, so I have to stick to my guns. The guy is hurt and still tries to go out there. I think he could be huge for us this weekend...he's a product of the University of Minnesota. I think he'll want to put on a show. Don't give up on him yet.

That said... if we look to the draft, we should target a late round pick for Joique Bell!!! :D :D :D

Don't get me wrong, i'm not giving up on the guy. I want him on the team, but not once all year did i see him play at a high level all game, which is kinda funny considering this year we went with a three running back rotation. And i'm probably the guy that takes the longest to give up on players. Roy Williams will be a stud, and i still have hope that one off-season some switch is gonna go off in Bobby Carpenter's head and he's gonna come in and be a 130 tackle a year guy. :(

I think the Jerry hate comes from the Jimmy situation. No matter what Jerry does, he'll always be known to fans, who were around then, as the idiot who ran off a coach who won two Super Bowls handily. I don't rage about it daily, but it still does suck when I think about it. Ah well you can't live in the past....unless the team sucks. Then you have to live in the past.

I think more people are upset that he got rid of Tom Landry than Jimmy Johnson.

I don't see anything wrong with getting rid of Landry. It was his time anyways. Jimmy was on the highest high you can get, and Jerry ****** things up. With Jimmy it's hard not to think about what could have been, while Landry was close to retirement anyway.

Thing is Jerry never even really ran him off, they both had huge ego's and both felt like they were the reason for all the success that was here, and I mean it's not like we didn't win a SB after Jimmy left anyhow.


People love to hate on Jerry like a sport, I'm so used to that from Cowboys fan base now, it's one of the things that pisses me off about a majority of Cowboy fans. Look at the talent this team has, young talent none the less, people act like our team looks like the Chiefs or Rams sometimes I swear.


That's his job, to bring in talent, of course he makes terrible moves like trading for Roy, or Joey Galloway, but what's so funny is people always give him 100% credit for ****** moves and 0% credit for great moves.


Miles Austin? Oh that's all Bill Parcells. Tony Romo? Parcells. Jay Ratliff? Parcells. List goes on and on and on, any typical Jerry hater loves to bring up the bad picks, bad moves, the bust that didn't pan out, but will hand over the credit to the talent we do have to anyone else possible to make it seem like Jerry had no hand in doing it what so ever. I wonder who'll get the credit for Ogletree if he develops like Austin did.


We have plenty of youth on this team to grow around, and are one of the most talented teams in the league. Jerry swallowed his ego with TO, admitted mistake and look at where this team is right now. He didn't want to make a big splash in Fa like Snyder so he went out and got some of Wade's guys and guys who fit the scheme specifically for cheap.


When Sean Jones got signed quick, for more then Sensabaugh everyone was upset, then we got Sensy way less who has been 10x the player, same thing for losing Canty and getting Igor.


I'd love to know one GM who makes no mistakes in the draft or FA. Even the Pats have been drafting below average lately, how about the Steelers and their lack of secondary? They don't have ONE corner who can cover worth a damn, and outside of Troy their safeties are attrocious, our fanbase would be killing Jerry for letting that happen but the mighty Steelers and their perfect drafts somehow still manage to do everything right I guess.


In 2008 the Pats got a stud in Mayo, big whoop a top 10 pick will do that for you, outside of that they got a draft class full of bust probably. O'Connell in the 3rd was cut, the rest of the guys don't even play and some aren't even on the roster. In 07 they drafted ONE player again worth a damn, Merriweather, rest of that class was terrible. 2006 was pathetic, their best player was the bust Maroney who was probably the only bust out of every RB that went in the 1st round that year.


That's my point, is people love to trash Jerry for every little pick that doesn't go right, like there are teams out here who are making every pick correct. The Pats have 2 players they drafted to show for since 2006, not counting trades, and their regarded as one of the best run franchises period, but the meat of their drafts look like they are just picking names out of a hat.


I disagree with alot Jerry does, but anyone who consistently bashes Jerry to no end I pay no attention to, they obviously have some agenda and just don't like him for whatever reason and your going to get those guys everywhere. People act like Jerry has no clue what he's doing, but nobody wants to give him credit for anything, he may like to have more control and power then most owners/GM's but if you want to look at everything in hindsight and nitpick moves about what he did wrong you could do that for the Colts, Steelers, Pats and make them look alot better too.

This is just one possibility.
Didn't say we haven't hit on the big ones, we certainly have. Ones that have worked out:


1) Terence Newman
2) Witten (3rd round is borderline, but I'm counting it)
3) Ware
4) TO...at least I'm counting it as a success
5) Leonard Davis
6) Spencer
7) Felix
8) Jenkins
9) Martellus (I'm counting him)


Not a bad track record at all. Jerry gets way too much grief. He's not the overconfident, brash and out of touch guy he was in 96. He's come a long way and he deserves as much credit for where we are right now as anyone.

I'm still happy with our season. I can't complain with progression.

I'm highly pissed, but let's look at the bright side. This season was the best in awhile, and the team has a really good core of solid and young players. The key is not to ruin what could be something great. They should fix the holes, and learn from experience. Remember that the 91 team got their asses beat by Detroit really badly, and then went on to win to make history. Let's not get too carried away with getting rid of everybody.

The biggest thing I take away from that game is that we really need to upgrade the offensive line and secondary specifically the safeties and pretty much every corner not named Mike Jenkins.

I'd like to think that the Vikings aren't significantly better than us but they certainly played like it today as their defensive line dominated our offensive line.

I wish we would have gone for it instead of sending an average at best kicker out there.

The better team obviously won. If we played them 10 times they would probably beat us 7 or 8 times.

EDIT: Scandrick is pretty good but needs to be more consistent and make plays on the ball.
