  1. 3.90 Connor McGovern C/G, Penn State

    We will have to wait and see how McGovern pans out. But I can't fault the thinking: Don't know what we have in Williams; Collins could be gone as a FA;; and Frederick is recovering from a serious health issue. So draft an OL. Besides that there is never anything wrong with fortifying both lines.
  2. Cowboys Full Draft - How do you feel?

    Love the Hill pick. He will allow Collins to walk. I think Pollard will be a pleasant surprise as a returner and receiver out of the backfield. Unless he is a special teams demon I don't know if Wilson makes the club. I read but don't pay much attention to post draft evaluations. As per usual let's wait until we see the young men in pads, and look at their contributions after a season or two before we begin assigning grades.
  3. Pick 128: Tony Pollard / RB / Memphis

    I'm trusting that Dallas is sticking to its' board. This kid will do a lot for our return game and I think he will help out on obvious passing downs. Jack of all trades.
  4. Pick 58: Trysten Hill / DT / UCF

    From what I can see on film, Hill has a very quick first step. Keeps his pads low. Looks hard to block. Potential watchout could be the level of competition he's faced but an athlete is an athlete. He definitely has tools. Won't complain about drafting a DT.
  5. That's horrible. I feel for you and your kids.
  6. Quick Mocks

    I don't study college players or the draft like I used to so I'll just say this. Don't reach to fill a need at 58; stick to your board and go Best Player Available.
  7. DE Robert Quinn acquired for 2020 6th Round Pick

    Like the Quinn deal. Solid move. Two thumbs up. Now lets get Lawrence resolved one way or the other. Best move of the off season so far is the great LP returning.
  8. As your earlier post indicated Dallas has a lot of cap space. Good find. I admit readily I am not a capologist. Correct me if I am wrong but a lot of that space is going to go to, in no particular order, extensions for Dak, Zeke, Cooper, Jaylon Smith, and Jones. A lot of that space is committed. Re Lawrence. If it's true that we just offered to make him the highest paid 4-3 defensive end and he turned it down, how high do we go? Terrific player but I would continue to negotiate while examining trade options. and other free agents. Hedge your bet so to speak. I'm not comparing the Cowboys to the Patriots or Belichick. Far from it. Everyone thought New England was nuts when they trade Richard Seymour to the Raiders. Turned out okay for New England.
  9. Dak, the QB of the future or not.

    Two Ram rb's with over 100 yards rushing. The Hot Boyz were far from hot in that game. Tough to win when the opposition can run at will.
  10. Dak, the QB of the future or not.

    Team wasn't ready. D line in particular got severely abused.
  11. L.P. Ladouceur Appreciation Thread

    The GOAT returns for year 15. He's in elite company. All hail the great LP!
  12. Free agency - who is left.

    I get it too. If we win I don't care. Sign the misfits. McDowell could be very intesting.
  13. Free agency - who is left.

    I read the same thing. Intesting. Call me crazy but what's the issue with signing a healthy productive player? Oh yeah they cost more.
  14. Free agency - who is left.

    Go for it. Nothing wrong with depth on the DL. Suh can play. He was dominant in the Rams playoff run.
  15. Free agency - who is left.

    Good one. Eifert is a gamble, a big one, with an injury history no denying it. His talent is undeniable. We have a need and Eifert would have been worth a low risk, incentive heavy prove it deal. Hopefully Witten can move the chains, and one of Jardin or Schultz can really progress.
