I know both lines need an influx of young talent but it helps a great deal to have quality backups at RB, WR, TE, safety, and LB.
Well, let me say that I thought depth was a *huge* issue on this team two years ago. I believe we've gotten a lot better in that regard, but I agree we're not where we need to be. I think we'll fill in a lot of the remaining holes this offseason, though. RB, we'll have a new hole b/c Felix goes. TE we're in good shape, actually, I think, and Phillips can be readily replaced with a minor pick or signing. Our LB depth is outstanding, we just used every bit of it this year. WR is thin, S is thin, OG is thin, and we're probably going to need another starting-capable OT and a rotational player who could backup there, too, in a pinch, if we cut Doug Free.
When asked whether Jason Garrett is the right head coach for this team: "I don't think there is anyone else that could. I think he is an unbelievable coach. We've responded to him and he has made us better football players, better people. If you watch us I think we play with a certain relentless spirit." --Sean Lee
