  1. Call me a homer. I think Dak is going to be alright.
  2. A new staff may want their franchise QB. The question is will Jerry?
  3. I don't disagree that this is a prove it year for Dak, the team, and JG. Right now my glass is half full. Healthy OL, and Zeke for 16 will help us reestablish our identity and get some balance back in our offense hopefully keeping defenses off guard. Something tells me though that if this team crashes and burns, JG will skate. Personally another year of mediocrity means big changes for me including the coaching staff.
  4. I think you are right. If the WR corps turns out to be as poor as many of us fear Dak will catch the heat. The calls for a new QB will intensify.
  5. Terrance Williams arrested

    Williams contract and production are not worth this headache. Cut him loose.
  6. Witten to retire after 15 seasons

    I'm reflecting here. We will often say that we hate certain teams and/or players. Hopefully it's emotion getting the best of us. But if you love this game then you have to appreciate the players who make it great, regardless of who they play for. Remember it's the quality of the opponent that makes you rise up and accomplish things you didn't think you were capable of. We may "hate" players or teams at a moment in time. If you are as old as I am you can remember how great those Steeler teams of the 70's were. Hated them then. But now I reflect on how privileged I was to watch one of the all time great teams. That Steel Curtain was something else. Even the 49ers. Walsh was a genius. Montana was a surgeon and as cool under pressure as you will see. Ronnie Lott. Badly injures a finger. Is told it will require surgery and pins will have to be inserted. His response - cut the tip off I'm not missing any time. I know Coach Landry had great admiration for Lott. How can I forget LT? An absolute one man wrecking crew for the Giants. I could go on and on. Where am I going with this? Regardless of the team you support if you don't appreciate Jason Witten and how he played this game, and how he became a leader in his clubhouse and community, then you don't appreciate the game.
  7. Witten to retire after 15 seasons

    Witten did it the right way. A leader on and off the field. Absolutely tough as nails. By his own admission he wasn't flashy but no one was going to out work him. He'll be missed on the field but more so in the locker room. Sure fire first ballot hall of famer. One of my all time favs. Nothing but class and respect.
  8. Gregory to file for reinstatement May 1st

    First I am happy that if he is seeking reinstatement he has got things together. That's most important. If he gets reinstated that's a huge boost for the D. I'm jumping way ahead, but I would envision a situational pass rushing DE to ease him back in. Who knows? I hope he gets back on the field.
  9. How did our rivals do draft wise?(Compared to us)

    The Giants had an awesome draft. Barkley and Hernandez will really help their offense. Carter is a good LB and Hill will become part of their DL rotation. Great draft. They are instant contenders. Redskins had a solid draft. Payne and Allen in the middle will be tough to run on. Guice was a steal. I like the OT and Settle was great value. The Eagles getting Goedert will be a match up problem. Sweat has the potential to be one part of the DL. Our draft? LVE will be a solid player. Love Williams and think Gallup contributes from day one. We still need a safety and don't know what we have in Schultz at TE. Really like the Scarborough. Can we figure out how to use Austin?
  10. 4-116 DE Dorance Armstrong

    The draft is not science; it's a crap shoot every year filled with I didn't see that coming moments like Cleveland taking Ward at 4. Terrific player but I thought it would be Chubb. (For the record I predicted Mayfield, Barkley, and Darnold right. Every other pick went off the rails after that). Re Armstrong. I tell my sons every year wait until we see these young men in pads, in game situations before we evaluate. Remember Travis Frederick. We were roasted for taking him way too early. No value there. I think he's worked out
  11. 2.50 Connor Gonna Guard #HookEm

    We saw what happened when Leary left and Smith hot hurt. Solid pick and excellent value. We have to find a wr and te who can contribute. I won't be surprised if we take a later round flyer on Calloway.
  12. Witten to retire after 15 seasons

    I love Witten. One of my all time favourites and tough as nails. Team guy and no nonsense off the field. If he wants to walk away I wish him well. He doesn't owe the game or anyone anything. TE was a need for this draft. I mean you have a still productive albeit 15 year vet as your starter. His replacement should be on the roster already. Hindsight is 20/20. My big concern is the loss of production with Dez and Witten gone. 132 receptions 1398 yards and 11 tds. That's significant.
  13. Is Earl Thomas worth #50?

    Don't do it. Thomas wants a big contract. Before you know it we are going to be looking at deals for Lawrence, Martin, Zak, and Zeke. Signing Thomas will negatively impact our abiliy to retain a few of our solid young corps.
  14. 1.19 - Welcome to Dallas LVE

    LVE is a pro active pick. He fills a need but more importantly we are preparing for the day when we cut ties with Lee. Drafting is not an exact science. I like what Mayock said of LVE - best zone dropping ilb he's seen since Kuechly. Time will tell. No inundating me with Mayock is an idiot comments please.

    Great trade for the Bills. I love Edmunds. Didn't cost much either
