These last two drafts have been about getting guys that want to go to work every day, that are interested in and have the smarts to maximize their talent. They are starting to infiltrate our roster, but there are still not enough of them.
Bruce Carter, Tyron Smith, DeMarco Murray, Morris Claiborne, Tyrone Crawford. I can't remember hearing about any of the draft choices the last two years being lazy, dumb, troublesome, etc since they have joined Dallas. They eat and breathe football, they have high motors.
The free agents have all been high motor guys. Carr is passionate about playing football, Church was resigned.

I look for Dallas to sign/draft two new starters on the line at a minimum, hopefully a right tackle to challenge Free. They really need Dwayne Harris, Danny Coale and Matt Johnson to pan out because they all have the attributes that JG is looking for and the team is needs upgrades in those positions. Lissemore and/or Crawford will hopefully be a starting DE next year.
I am not happy with this team anymore than the next guy, and I am at the point where I simply can't stand to hear any more from Jerry Jones, but I do think Jason Garrett has a plan that can succeed if he can get the players and work through the hindrance of having Jerry as his employer.
i like this post and agree with a lot of it, sure Garrett's got his faults as any coach will, but I really like his overall philosophy and believe it can bear fruit eventually. He may be a better "walk around coach" but i'm not sure if that's Garrett's choice or something Jerry is demanding since he's said so many times that he learned from Joe Gibbs that it gives a coach credibility with the players when a coach also acts as a coordinator.
However, I never get tired of seeing Jerry get roasted, I just can't stand the man.
