They traded one player not their QB, OLB, TE and WR. The 89 Cowboys were virtually talentless so they gambled their best player because that team had holes everywhere. You could trade Romo, Ware, Witten and Dez and never get the number of draft picks and players the 89 Cowboys got for Walker.
The Cowboys received 8 draft picks and 5 veteran players for Walker. Romo, Ware, Witten and Dez are the teams corp players and without them the Cowboys are probably a 3-4 win team at best. The picks they would get for them would be used to try and replace them it would make no sense. The Cowboys would probably end up having to use multiple picks just trying to replace Romo.
If you're referring to the OL don't know why you got abused for saying it would be a problem in 2012 most on the board figured it would be. A lot of fans wanted the Cowboys to use their #1 on the OL.
