I had to laugh when the guy who wrote that article was none other than Chris Mortenson. He's the worst of the worst at anything and everything.

I'm pretty sure we could of still found a way to land another Rb and OLB late in the draft...Ideally I would of preferred your scenario of Jenkins and Thomas, too bad Jerry didn't feel the same but I'll hope Felix makes me change my mind on that.

I for one loved the Felix pick. :D

Anyway, Matt Jones is terrible. He's still incredibally raw and is noted as being lackadasical and lazy. He plays half-assed most of the time and rounds off all his routes. blah.

As for Austin not making the team...I'd say the chances are pretty low of that happening. Amendola is not much of a threat and Ray Sherman, among others, have really been talking Austin up this off-season. He certainly could have a bad preseason and see his way out but, if he is atleast semi-consistant...his skill set should def. get him a spot on the team. At the end of the year, he was frequently targeted on fly routes or as a deep threat in general. At this very point...I'd say he is pretty safe.

Amendola is all Rookie OTA hype. I haven't even heard his name since the vets got involved. He'll probably be practice squad if anything.

However, I have heard a lot of good things about Miles Austin lately. Catching everything thrown his way and showing off that Burner speed.

I'd rather see Crayton in the slot on a consistent basis with Austin outside.

Bentley was just released from the Browns... Two years out with a bum Knee... If I were Jerry I would at least offer him a 2 year Vet minimum. He wont be ready to play this year. But a full season as a backup for the Cowboys before possibly pushing for Kosier's spot or forcing Gurode to the LG spot doesnt suck imo...

Just wonder whether there will be a market for him...

This is Austin's 3rd year, the year when you typically see some strides, and he has been looking good vs the vets out there, he just has to show some consistency in catching balls in the games to show he can be on the field at crucial times...He has that Roddy White thing going on right now, hopefully he can break out of it the way White did, remember Roddy was burning DB's left and right but couldn't catch a cold, but this year it all came together for him, I'm hoping for the same with Austin...He has speed and size to be a #1 target in this league, but I have to see him come up with a few big time catches to have faith in giving him game snaps and throwing to him in crucial situations...Hurd has proven you can go to him in those situations, right now Austin is more measurables then anything, but I'm really hoping to see an increase...I doubt he gets cut quite yet either, unless he stinks it up in pre season, most of our guys are young, we will see what we have first.

I really don't have a lot of faith in Austin coming through this year. Until he can prove he can catch the ball consistently, he's just a so so decoy. Stanback is the one I want to see this year. His durability is a question mark, but if he can stay healthy it'll be interesting.

Damn, all the sudden Austin's getting a lot of talk around here. Anyway, I'd love to see Stanback take reps from Austin. Right now, I'm actually hoping Glenn gets released. With him gone and Crayton in the slot, Hurd would be working out of the base, set which would do wonders for his development IMO. Also, with the more wide open looks we got this year, we could see Austin and Stanback fighting for time. To tell the truth, I believe that Stanback will turn out to be a very good player. Getting the reviews he's gotten after switching positions only a year go, the guy really is getting there.

I still think Terry will be playing for us but, if he doesnt. I would love for the outside receivers to be T.O. and Hurd. I like that idea a lot actually...as it stands now, though. Crayton has still been working out at the two currently, while Glenn is out and Hurd is T.O.'s primary backup on the other side and is getting the slot reps. This could be subject to change if for some reason Terry cant go, though...but, Crayton would certainly still have the inside track at starting. Hurd would have to earn that spot and I def. think he could do just that. We'll see, I still see Terry back though...so, i dont really think it will come to this.

Well Crayton did have some damn good games out of the outside #2 role, the Green Bay comes to mind where he beat Al Harris in man coverage repeatedly which shouldn't be over looked, and it's only normal to think he will improve like the rest of the guys...He might me more natural out of the slot and I agree with that, one thing people don't notice is how good he is at finding the soft spot in defenses...He knows how to find the area to get open especially when Romo is scrambling.


Out of Austin and Stanback I don't care who gets the reps as long as its the guy who has been performing the best in practice...I want somebody to earn that role, and show they need to be on the field more, Crayton had to do that with us, Hurd has already made plenty of plays the same way...I think we will see both this year in games at some point, but I think Stanback could be nice out of the slot as well.

Dont get me wrong...I like Crayton, he played well as the 2 last season. I know there was a lot of complaining about him but, he had a nice season, a year ago. I've been saying it for a while, that it was only his 1st year starting so, he should see a natural progression as well...he should be a better receiver this season. The fact that I like Hurd on the outside, is just because, Crayton is a better slot option and I think Hurd, atleast, imo...has a higher upside than Patrick. I dont think it would be likely but, he should be given every opportunity to start if Terry couldnt go....but, anyway I have full confidence in Crayton as our #2...it was just an idea. I'm happy w/ either of those two starting. Hurd would have to really impress the coaches for a change like that to occur, though.

Also, with the more wide open looks we got this year, we could see Austin and Stanback fighting for time. To tell the truth, I believe that Stanback will turn out to be a very good player. Getting the reviews he's gotten after switching positions only a year go, the guy really is getting there.
I want Glenn to get cut too, I doubt he can even get through 3 games. I'd love to start working in the young guys. I think we could have a system like the packers/pats implemented last year where all 5 guys could see time.

Obviously T.O. and Crayton would be the primary guys and hurd would be getting more than Austin and Stanback, but it would be nice to see everyone worked it.

We don't even need TG. We didn't need him last year, and we don't him this year. Especially if guys like Austin and Stanback can show any sort of improvement.

I definately think a WR by committee approach could work, TO and Witten will garner alot of attention but they open things up for everyone else...Austin can come in outside and stretch the defense, I too think Hurd can line up outside and be solid(I can't wait to pick him up in all my dynasty leagues and hype him up all year :) )...I think its an exciting year for our WR, our of Hurd, Austin, Stanback we are going to have a diamond in the rough, each guy is young with potential, and TO has at least 3 years left for somebody to emerge...I'll be the first to admit if TO goes down then things change, because he's vital to take attention away from other guys, but with him and Witten I'm comfortable with the guys we have.

Hurd has gotten alot better each year and at his age I feel he is going to continue to improve, Austin has everything going for him except sure hands, if we see that we could have something, and Stanback just looks explosive when he is on the field, he looks like a weapon being the most explosive out of the group...I'm perfectly fine with letting Glenn go and giving these guys more reps.

Cant make it through three games? You should probably reserve some judgement on that. Where is that coming from? That is like all those comments on the DMN blog by people that think he doesnt even have a knee anymore. I dont know why you would want to cut him before, you even see what he has left in the tank. I know you cant believe everything you read/hear but, everything about Terry's rahabilitation has been positive. Hell, a few weeks ago, the DMN blog was posting thoughts on his fantasy impact for this year and how he is a sleeper pick. Things have turned since we heard of this injury waiver but, nothing medical has changed. His knee is supposedly in a good place right now...he can only help us. There is no reason to cut him prematurely. I dont think that will be the case, either. He should be back this season.

If T.O. goes down, Sam Hurd is his back up. So, we'll be fine. This is when Sammy steps up and becomes a SUPER STAR. :) haha. It would be nice.

God, I cant wait for the season to begin already.

I totally agree with MOTH on WR placement. Crayton is very effective from the slot and Hurd has better upisde (believe it or not, Crayton is 29). Those lead me to want to put Crayton in the slot and Hurd out wide at flanker.

By the way, if TO goes down, here's what I wouldn't be surprised to see: Sammy at 1, Cayton at 2, Witten in the slot, and Bennett at TE.

I've been watching last season's games throughout the day today and I must say... Bradie James is worse than I thought.

God, if the pressure ever shifts off of Roy, James will be exposed.

He is so terrible, I can't even begin to imagine how this guy became the leader of the D. He constantly overrunes plays, he constantly misses tackles (which is supposed to be his strong suit; the big run thumper/sure tackler) and he can't cover for ****.

Roy is equally terrible.

You guys should go back and watch a few games, it's alot different when you watch the game after you already know what happens because you're not following the ball as much, you aren't nervous or jumping out of your seat. You can just sit back and critique individual players and sometimes is disgusting.

If anyone wants his worst game of the season, please see the detroit game. God awful play by james and williams

DC.com poll right now.

Which young receiver has the most potential?

I'm actually surprised at the voting because, he is the oft-forgotten one or the least talked about it seems...but my boy, Sammy Hurd, leading the way in the voting. Then Stanback, Miles, Amendola.

Another note after watching some old games today -- Pat Watkins is a much better tackler than his frame would lead you to believe. He really throws his shoulder into guys and puts them down. I was pretty impressed on his improvement from a positioning standpoint when comparing his first 2 seasons.

He really put himself in a position to make tackles. Now he needs to put himself in a position to make plays if he wants to take that next step.

To clarify on my impressions of Bradie James -- He looks really clumsy/sloppy/uncoordinated
