  1. Draft watch 2020

    What does a likely career look like for an interior lineman drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the 2nd or 3rd round of 2020? The baseline outcome would probably be that he finally has a starting job in year 3. You could draft someone else that'll give you 1,500-2,000 snaps before that OL even sees the field. I see the argument a little bit more for an OT, but them letting Fleming walk makes me think they are pretty comfortable with Knight as their swing tackle.

    Hey gang, Love y'all, and thanks for nominating me! I regret to say, however, that I cannot be your man for this year. My life is currently a rollercoaster, and while I occasionally have extended downtime to read and talk Cowboys, there is no way I can commit to being here day-in and day-out to run this thing the right way. I am certain to disappear for long stretches. I am happy to act as the Jerry Jones most people want, a hands-off billionaire who will do anything for the team but doesn't actually make decisions. But you need a Will McClay (the actual GM), and I fully support @flyingmonkey30

    And when is Tyron retiring?

    Poe had 4 snaps where he sacked the QB, DeMarcus Lawrence had 5. They played hundreds of other snaps.

    Yeah, I agree with all of this. I was just trying to temper expectations for Poe. He's not a savior at the nose unless he re-finds his form of ~4 years ago.

    Williams is such a bust that he's not even a viable primary backup in your eyes? You and I are not even in the same ballpark for how we view this.

    So has Vince Wilfork. Would you be excited about signing him? Poe hasn't been that productive for a while, only played about half the snaps in Carolina when healthy, and ended last season on IR with a torn quad. Right now, he's an alright player who adds to the roster. I just don't buy into this "finally!" hype, and I don't expect his contract to be a very large or long one.

    What's your plan? Williams at LG, Looney at C, and a premium pick battling with McGovern and Redmond to be our top backup guard? I don't really see how drafting a guard makes much sense.
  9. Travis Frederick retires at 29

    Pretty classic example of why you should not draft for need outside of maybe the first round. Non-premium rookies are rarely ready to make major contributions, and roster turnover is so high, the position you just drafted is likely to be a need before long.

    I imagine they’d love McGovern to win the C job now. This could possibly double the amount of snaps our 2019 draft class gets in 2020.

    I’m fine with bringing him in. I just don’t think he’s a “finally we address 1T!” kind of guy, at least any more than Cedric Thornton or Stephen Paea were.
  13. 2020 Cowboys Free Agency

    If we sign him, I don't think you will feel like Poe was an answer for very long. I'm not at all convinced that a major upgrade over Woods.
  14. Draft watch 2020

    I'll take a 3rd Jeudy.

    Calling Snacks "quality" is probably an understatement. If he still has any gas left in the tank, he's a real difference-maker.
