We haven't look this bad on paper in a long time, if I'm just being realistic. This isn't anywhere near a SB team which is sad with Romo at his age. I challenge anyone here to find 3-4 team who has a worse pair of starting safeties and DE's. Even leaving out the LB's there, but beside Ware we have an uninspiring Spencer, and a starting Keith Brooking who was bad last year.


Then on offense, I'm looking at the problems of the interior of the line were no doubt going to have, without a legit short yardage RB for the first time since before we got Barber. I think Choice can/should be that, but I don't think Garrett does so we'll just keep banging Felix and Murray into the lineman time after time.


I'm not trying to be doom and gloom, yes I am pissed about losing Bowen and will for a long time probably, but if your being honest with yourself I don't think were close to alot of the top tier teams right now. Cullen Jenkins would be a big help, but if we were going to do that Bowen made more sense without the injury concerns.

I'm not worried about our offense...we're obviously going to get a RG. And we trimmed the fat. Davis/Colombo were the biggest problems along our line. It wont take much for Smith to be an upgrade at RT. And hell, Holland's play would probably be an upgrade over the season Davis just had. But we'll surely find a new RG. Miles/Dez/Witten are going to be dynamic. And with a fixed o-line, there is no reason why Felix shouldnt break out. And Felix certainly has the body to will his way for the extra yard inside these days. Murray has been bulking up as well. Choice could probably do it as well. You dont need a power back. All three of our RBs are balanced enough to be the every down type. I would hope they could pick up an extra yard if the need was there. Again, not worried about the O. They're going to be good, and their going to score a lot of points.

Defense is another story all together. It's a **** storm. We currently are fielding a team with three safeties with NFL experience. (All second year players) and two DEs in Olshansky and Lassimore. lol.

In hindsight, we probably should have tackled these needs better. Not drafting a S was pretty moronic. It's always a need with this team. I'd kill for Rahim Moore now. But anyway....some of the things you said, you should wait a little bit on. Honestly, we have no idea who we're going to have at the S positions or DE yet. The market has slowed down for both of these positions. There are still good players to be had out there. And a schematic change and a fired up coordinator could do wonders for Spencer. He's been too mild mannered/layed back in Dallas. He was an animal at Purdue. He's lossed that, but maybe he can get it back. If not, Brandon Williams and Vic Butler are ready to step up. With Ryan, he'll play the best players and they're all going to be in the LB rotation. Brooking sucks, I agree.

Luckily for us, our schedule isnt too daunting this year. But that doesn't assure us anything. I just suggest all fans kilter their expectations and the positives that come from the season, will be all the more rewarding. Dallas always seems to play better in an under dog role, anyway.

I'm actually really excited to see our offense get to work.

I dont want to be premature, but our defense as is is worse than last year. We need to make some moves NOW. Our DE's and Safeties are a joke.

lol. Obviously...but we're not going into the season as is. We dont even have a starting DE opposite Olshansky on the roster. And none of the three safeties we have are going to start, more than likely.

It will be okay. We're going to sign players. They may not be the players we all want, but it will be better than our current situation. If you guys havent noticed, news for the S/DE positions have been dead silent for everyone today. As has been reported, the market has died down for the positions, which is a good thing. It could lead to cheaper contracts. But it could also take a little longer for these players to start to sign...which is nerve-racking.

But rest assured, we're not going into the season with what we have now. We dont even have the minimum number of DEs or S on the team currently. haha.

And now after I try to cheer you guys up...I have a tidbit of bad news. Demarco Murray showed up to camp with a hamstring injuries. And the unsigned rookie will miss at least two weeks already.

I didn't really get to watch too many Cowboys games last year.

Question: is Stephen Bowen really as good as that contract that the Skins gave him says he is?

Not yet...but he certainly could be. I mean, that was too rich for our blood, at least.

He has tons of potential, though. I would rank his bull rush among the league's best right now. He's a powerful attacking 34 DE. And we wanted him back to start this year. I expect him to do very well in Washington...sadly.

It's tough to evaluate our team right now because we're not complete, but yea... our defense is looking very thin. I'm certainly happy we re-signed Kosier and Free, even if we don't look to FA for RG help I'm ok with Costa/Holland battling it out. I agree with Moth that those guys can't be much worse, if at all worse, than Davis was last year. I was a little concerned after we cut Roy that we might have to go out and sign a bargain vet, but the more I thought about it I think we'll be in 2 and maybe even 3 TE sets the majority of the game. I know we're all excited about Dez and what he can do this season now that Roy is out of the way, but I think we're going to see a break out season for Marty B. The guy has a ton of talent as a pass catcher and now that Roy's gone I have a feeling he's going to see around double the amount of targets as he did the past couple of years. Basically, I feel like we just swapped Marty for Roy as a "starter". Garrett loves that 1 back 2 TE personnel, it's really a great formation for our team. I'm excited for what this offense can do this year, I really think Romo puts up career highs.

And he's going to have to, because unless Rob Ryan can work a miracle our defense isn't going to win us any games.

We'll probably be more balanced...well, we better be. But I doubt we'll see a major incline in double TE sets. All we did was lose Roy, that shouldnt really effect our passing game schematically. Ogletree or Hurd (if he's back) can certainly fill in on those 3 WR sets. I like the idea of Bryant and Hurd on the outside with Miles in the slot, myself in those formations. But no, I still expect us to use a lot of 3 WR sets...especially with the hiring of our new WR coach from GB, Jimmy Robinson. He's coming from a system where they would use many 4/5 WR spread formations. That could certainly work in Dallas, with the multiple weapons we possess. Witten/Bennett/Felix/Murray could all be included in such formations in addition to our WRs. I would hope he would bring some of that stuff over with him. It's something I've been wanting to see us use for a while. Take a page out the playbooks of teams like Green Bay, San Diego, and New England.

Cowboys second-round pick Bruce Carter is expected to open the season on the NFI (non-football injury) list.


Carter tore his left ACL late last season at North Carolina, and the Cowboys aren't going to rush back the 40th overall pick in the draft. His likely placement on NFI -- which is essentially another form of PUP -- will cost Carter the first six games of the regular season. It also should make Keith Brooking feel safer.

Is Brian Waters a realistic option for us? I don't think he'd cost much, and would be a nice 1 year bridge. He was alot better then Kosier last year honestly, and would come at a cheaper price.

What worries me is that Garrett doesn't seem to place a big importance on Defense. He loaded up on Offense in the draft and the first thing he did was take care of Offense in FA. Defense is getting the back burner treatment.

Guess the plan is to score 60 points a game.

Garrett will regret it when he can't get his precious offense on the damn field because the defense is getting eaten up, demoralized, tired and frustrated. Ah well.

The stubbornness of this team to properly address NT from Day 1 of transitioning to the 3-4 is still haunting this team. We develop DEs and let'em go all the time. There's just no value being put on the DL. None. But I bet if Bowen was an OL, he'd be here today. Just the way it is around here.

We need defense in the worst way, and the sources we're looking at for help are all up Mediocre Alley.

I also find it bothersome that Washington could find a trade partner for Haynesworth, but we couldn't find a cent for Roy, Barber, Davis and others. Not working smart enough.

Schefter reported this morning that were making a push on Nnamdi. While I'd LOVE to have him on the team, is this necessarily the right move to make right now? Shouldn't it be making a move at S or DE?

Yes and no. The Ryans' (chunking Rex in here too) defenses can be immensely boosted by leaving a guy on an island. If you end up signing two guys cheap (Elam/Sensy/Harper etc) and just have them be responsible for keeping the play in front of them and keeping organized you are already giving our rush crew an extra couple of seconds to get to the QB. Ware/Spencer will have no problems getting to the QB with a few extra seconds.

That said. I would rather see our remaining cap thrown at a FS, RG, DE, SS in that order before adding a luxury FA.

Yea but the remaining guys at S and DE are all JAG. Elam, Harper, Robaire Smith, Coleman? I was all about dumping our resources at those positions when FA started, but the top guys I wanted are now off the market. Nnamdi is really the only guy out there who can take our defense to another level.

Plus I've read a ton of reports that says with the moves we've made, and with a few restructured contracts, we could have anywhere from 20-25 million to play with. We can sign Nnamdi and still sign the same cheap options to fill DE and S we were going to anyway.
