  1. News and Notes: Offseason Edition

    No way. This page turned a long time ago.

    Not looking for Pulitzer Prize winning commentary. My bar is significantly lower than that.
  3. TACT XIX: Totally Worth A 1st, Thanks Oakland!!

    I had a similar experience. My credit card was skimmed at a gas station pump a few months back. They racked up $40k of charges and the only reason it stopped was because they went over my credit limit, not because of the obvious fraud of 120+ consecutive charges at CVS in a 2 hour span. Anyway, I personally was able to track down video tape of the guys using the skimmed card at a Burger King, along with the make/model of their car, and exactly which pump at the gas station had the skimmer. Basically nothing happened. The credit card company refunded me, and didn’t seem to care beyond that. The police never followed up to get the video files. The machine at the gas station is loose because it must still have the skimmer on it. CVS probably got screwed and has no recourse. I learned the gas station has received numerous complaints and done nothing. Valero corporate didn’t care. So I just posted about it on NextDoor. It’s frustrating, but at least the CC companies are good about refunding fraudulent activity.

    I’m perfectly happy to discuss Olawale and what he could bring to the roster and season. My response wasn’t about discussing a player on the roster, it was about the seemingly endless search to find something to complain about. You responded “why 3 years instead of 1?” Well, it’s not significant in almost any way. Obviously the Cowboys thought he was worth it. Maybe he wouldn’t sign for 1. Maybe he had another offer on the table. Maybe they think he has upside and wanted to lock him down for cheaper before he has a good season. I don’t know. It doesn’t matter. I mean, let’s talk about some real issues on this team like why Dalton Schultz ate scrambled eggs for breakfast instead of an omelet this morning.

    I’ve got bigger stresses in my life than to research the length of a contract for the Cowboys special-teamer/role player. I don’t have any idea why a 3 year instead of a 1, but if you find out, let me know.

    If you want a fullback to be a regular lead blocker in the run game, you should probably go back a few decades. Olawale can make plays with the ball in his hands. I’m assuming Kellen Moore told Jerry that he would like to utilize that skill set in a way Linehan refuses to. We’ll see.

    Re: Byron vs Jaylon From a personal enjoyment standpoint, I just love watching Jaylon play and I feel kind of meh towards Byron. From a football standpoint, I think it’s relatively negligible. So give me Jaylon.
  8. Season Expectations pt. 1: Amari Cooper

    Amari’s 9 games last year extrapolated of 16 games would have been just shy of 1300 yards and 11 TDs. Which does not fit into any of these categories, haha
  9. Dak, the QB of the future or not.

    Life, man. Been an absolute rollercoaster of a few months.
  10. Dak, the QB of the future or not.

    This is a total mischaracterization of my opinion. You claimed that QBs had near total responsibility for sack totals. I just said that was silly, and both OL and QB both have responsibility in that statistic

    Clarence Hill literally couldn’t have been more wrong on the DeMarcus Lawrence negotiations if he’d just randomly guessed what was happening every morning when he woke up. So I think we’ll probably tune out anything he has to say about the contracts for Amari, Dak, and Zeke.
  12. News and Notes: Offseason Edition

    This is per Clarence Hill who is consistently one of the worst writers for insider information. He either has bad Cowboys sources, or he makes stuff up. I wouldn’t take anything he says as an accurate representation of what is going on. ~$30M makes sense, and we’ve been saying that on here for months. I don’t think you can trust Hill enough to gain any real info on whether there will be a 2 or 3 in the front of his APY, though.
  13. Ranking the (B)East - WR (Overall)

    Hilarious the OBJ isn’t going to win this poll.
  14. Cowboys Full Draft - How do you feel?

    I am not suggesting it is clean, just cleaner. With trading, I agree that complicates things, but not any more so than with any other board setup. I do see the possibility that a position being wiped out or falling could change your tune. At which point, the conversation can start, “Look, we agreed Thornhill gives us more marginal utility at #58, but is it possible based on how few DTs are left, and how many safeties are left, that we’ll maximize our total benefit from this draft by drafting Hill?” That frames the debate so much more cleanly, IMO, and in most scenarios, you wouldn’t even have to have that debate. Honestly, I see the value of the other board setups as well. It just really surprises me that they don’t have a pretty strong stacked ranking going into the draft.
  15. Cowboys Full Draft - How do you feel?

    -But Gregory wasn’t off our draft board. So if they constructed their board the way I am suggesting, we would have had him appropriately slotted, and he’d be the top remaining player at the time of our selection. -If A, B, and C are gone, you pick D, because you’ve already debated his merits against E and F before the draft and determined he was more valuable to you. Or you trade out. -I understand that they mock out lots of scenarios. But when you wind up on the clock, why is there still a debate between Trysten Hill and Juan Thornhill and whoever else was in that range on their board. What could possibly happen in the first 57 picks that would make Juan or another player jump Trysten? There’s nothing that would change that.
