Parcells in for the long haul
This certainly shows that Parcells is in it for the long haul... not just the next year or two. Why else pass up an immediate need for an extra #1 next year?
Right now, the Cowboys brain trust might not be the most popular guys in the room, but they are planning for the future and trying to build a solid team.
I'd have LOVED Steven Jackson at 22, but I'll reserve judgement until this all plays out, even if it takes a year or two. If it results in building a real winner and another Super Bowl (even if it takes a few years) then it will definitely be worth it.
