The team seems to keep striking out when signing interior FA's, it's hard for me to tell if the scouts are doing their homework and where the roles of the GM and S. Jones fit in that process.
Once again, I find that the Cowboys need to sign O and D linemen and at least one safety. Now, we also need a WR, CB, and LB.
Why do I have the feeling we will pick a TE in the first round? I just don't feel too optimistic about how this offseason is going to go, but I hope I'm wrong.
[View Full Quote]Hard to blame fans for being down when the same issues are ignored season after season and getting the same mediocre results with a minimal number of possible HOF-ers on this team (unlike Staubach and Aikman's eras).
So you suggest signing a bunch of bum/space fillers like we did last season. Macenzy, Livings, Connors, Spears, Pool.........not a one of those bums from last year should be on this team next year Mac and Livings only return because there contracts dont allow us to cut ties with them. I go quality over quantity every time.
Signing a guy who could solidify a spot is much more important than signing a bunch of backups who their original teams wanted nothing to do with in the first place.
We keep striking out signing fa offensive lineman because we keep going the cheap route as opposed to brining in a stud like Levitre. 9 yards per carry for Spiller running behind this guy and 8.2 for Fred Jax running behind him. The guy could pass block with the best of them and can slide to almost any spot on the line. Pay the man. We can't go into the draft without an established RG and RT!!!!!!! We need to SOLIDIFY one of those spots prior.
