Guys, do we have enough cap space to sign Joe Hayden? Looks like Claiborne and Church are out for a while. plus I don't want Hayden going to Green Bay.

Not with Tony on the roster we don't.

As far as I am concerned, the State of Cowboy Union finally looks extremely strong going forward. Never thought I would say that after 2002, lol.

I've heard and read earlier in the week that the nerve in Jaylon Smith's nerve has fired up. Very good news for our defense going into next season !

DE, DT, LB, CB and a replacement for Witten. If there are none this year, take more defense.

This draft is deep in TE's. it's going to be interesting to see what they do if OJ Howard is there at 28. The kid is a beast of a TE.

Guys, I really have to admit it. I honestly believe after the suspensions are over, our defense will be a lot better than I expected. Taco is looking better, David Irvin looks real good to me and I think tapper will have a break out year. I'm hoping Lee and Smith are healthy all year. I see nothing but great things from the both of them.

I really hope you're right man. I will say that I think Maliek Collins has a huge year and I liked what I saw from Paea. I also agree that Taco had looked pretty good and if they stick with playing Irving at DT their DL has some real potential. They still need a "war daddy" as Jerry says but they do have good younger by talent. My concern is the LB's and the secondary but especially the LB's.

I'd feel better if the kids were playing in the secondary because watching Carr torch our "starters" got a little old Saturday night. Of course, the Raiders are going to be REAL good this season so there's that. The offense is going to have to carry the load those first 4 weeks. The good news is they look quite capable of doing so even if Zeke is sitting.

If Collins stops getting stupid penalties we would have scored a hell of a lot more points. Drive killing penalties really piss me off.

This thread makes me sound like a broken record year after year. Jerry's play pen is still a mess from the front office all the way down to the field once again. Yes, Elliot has a lot of growing up to do and needs to mature big time. But Jerry handed the whole Suspension situation poorly. Coaching is still a major issue with me. Many of our red flag players were also out the first 4 weeks because of suspension on top of Elliot's situation. And we still have two horrible contracts of dead money on the table.

That dead money might be more if they cut Tyrone Crawford.

Yup... smart GM work right there.

Is there any more doubt about who is the biggest cancer in our beloved franchise. :banghead:

23 years since our LAST SUPER BOWL. Way too long for rebuilding. We've had more than enough time to rebuild. Why do things continue in this matter? I'm interested in EVERYONE'S thoughts why it has been 23 years since our last Super Bowl appearance? Something is just not right here.
I remember a man named Clint Murchinson who bought the Cowboys in 1960. He hired Tom Landry. Our first year we had nothing but everyone's scrubs with no draft. Our first draft was 1961. Yet being an expansion team starting from scratch and practically nothing, we manage to make it to our first NFL Championship game in 1966 and went on a 20 year streak that no one has matched (but the Patriot is extremely similar and close, so I throw them in there as well) in 59 years.
Now I don't expect the Cowboys to make the playoffs every year and go to the Super Bowl 5 times in a decade, but something is wrong with our current beloved franchise when its been 23 years and running.

Wanna know what the problem is? This is. And when I watched it Sunday night, I just shook my head. From "The Athletic"... reviewing Episode 1 of "All Or Nothing"... I will highlight the important stuff. This took place after the Broncos game. You remember the Broncos game... when you became a Chiefs fan?

Minute 48 is everything about coaching the Dallas Cowboys and why only certain people would ever take this job, despite the fact it should be the best job in the sport: The team arrived and as Jason Garrett readies to address his group, Jerry cuts in, “Coach, I want to say something before you say anything.” There it is. In a nutshell. If you ever wanted to see how Jason Garrett must work around Jerry Jones, there it is. I assume Jimmy Johnson would have lost his mind at that moment. Bill Parcells would have quit. But, the guys who work for Jerry understand, this is the job. You want to coach the Cowboys, you have to understand your authority may be undermined at any moment. You will see this all season long. It is what it is and that will never change


I rest my case.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. Until Jerry is dead we are doomed to seeing more of the same. That’s why no matter what happened with the draft and the rest of the off season I’m predicting an 8-8 season. Also Garrett will get to coach the final year of his contract next year.

And I've said this before as well. Jerry will die before winning another Super Bowl. So will I.
