  1. Awful news. Far too young.
  2. Gregory to file for reinstatement May 1st

    Good news. Who doesn't like a comeback story? If he's in shape we could have some nice pressure from the outside. Don't forget about Ealy.
  3. Hang in there. Thinking good thoughts for you and your family. Take care.
  4. DT Irving suspended first 4 games (again)

    Regardless of a player's talent we need players we can rely upon. There's a clear pattern of questionable choices and/or behaviour here. Let him play out the games post suspension and then move on.
  5. Cowboys off season - training camp is almost here!!!

    Nothing wrong with competition.
  6. Cowboys off season - training camp is almost here!!!

    I liked Jackson when he was here. Let's hope he can show something.
  7. Cowboys off season - training camp is almost here!!!

    Call me a homer. I think Dak is going to be alright.
  8. Cowboys off season - training camp is almost here!!!

    A new staff may want their franchise QB. The question is will Jerry?
  9. Cowboys off season - training camp is almost here!!!

    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.
  10. Cowboys off season - training camp is almost here!!!

    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.
  11. Terrance Williams arrested

    Williams contract and production are not worth this headache. Cut him loose.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
