    According to Jerry... and that we can remain in that formation on all 3 downs... If that is the case and I have no reason to disbelieve Jerry...than Fasano was a need pick... also from my understanding this Hatcher guy just WOWED a couple of teams... AZ, NO, NE & Dallas..


    From the dreaded "sources"

    Ko Simpson made a 10 on the wonderlic and teams really doubt he is capable of making the defensive calls needed....

    Giles and Watson are just fat guys that lack desire..


    (personal note dept.)

    I really like the idea of running a double te system...it really helps in both the run and the pass/protection department...

    I think Dallas has been brilliant so far in their drafting all though they have not selected a single draftee I have earmarked...

    I am perhaps more excited about the future of the Cowboys then I have been in a long while....

    I would like to see WR, Guard and a DB taken on the second day

    Yehaw...Go Cowboys:)

    Good post and I agree 100%!

    The double TE offense seemed to work fine for the Steelers last season....

    Who we drafted were not on my radar, but they do make sense. We are not reaching for positions like the Skins, that is how you get in trouble. Carpenter is going to start and be an upgrade on the strongside. He also offers the versatility to play any LB spot. That is huge.

    Fasano is going to play and lot in his rookie year and he will make a big contribution. Just a smart, tough, physical player. Great pick. Our TE situation is in great shape.

    Hatcher is a guy who has a ton of upside. We are really coming close to completing the retooling of our front 7 to the 3-4. It is amazing the transformation in just two seasons. This guy will work into the rotation and fits the mold of a 3-4 DE. Imagine a rotation of Canty, Spears, and Hatcher. Just three monsters with ability!


    I can't wait to see what they do today. One thing I will caution people about...don't jump to conclusions about any picks they make today. This scouting department has earned the benefit of the doubt. This is not the scouting dept. that was under JJ and Lacewell!

    Don't leave out Ratliff he played well before he got hurt...but yeah they have in just 2 years rebuilt the defense...and may have found the pass rush we have looked 10 years for...:eek:

    Let us pray that our new kicker's last kick ( which just happened to be the biggest kick of his life) isn't a sign of things to come.

    I think people who have a problem with Fasano are forgeting one thing.
    Do you really think JJ and Parcells would have taken Fasano with out the strong endorsement of the head coach of Notre Dame?
    The same coach who coached under Parcells and was an off. coordinator who won 3 super bowls with the Patriots.
    I think Charlie Weiss may know a thing or two on what it takes to make it in the NFL.
    Zaxor makes a great point.
    We are going to a new base offense and it doesn't require a fb.
    It's that simple.
    Fasano will be considered a starter.
    He can catch,block and is smart and tough.
    We got two now.
    Witten and Fasano.

    Very good points and with two wideouts that can stretch the field really counteracts any of the weakness that are associated with being a two tight / two wideout base team.

    The more I think about it the more I like it.

    Absolutely...but it also makes the need to draft a WR in the near future if not today a must

    I just wish Jerry could have let us in on the secret before hand. It would have saved thousands of fans heart ache with that second pick. It's not like secrecy was really even needed. I guess I should blame Dallas reporters most.

    If it was known that Dallas wanted a TE (fasano)...could be someone else really coveted the guy but thought they could get him further down...

    purely speculation on my part but it is not out of the question...

    Oh man!
    Please get Brandon Marshall JJ!
    This guys is a TO clone physically and is faster than TO was coming out of Tenn. Chatanooga.
    Waiting til our pick in the fourth is going to be torture with Watkins and some good sleeper wr's still out there.

    :lmao2: that would have been nice I agree. Ironic that listening to the ticket, right before we picked they said beware of us going TE. I wonder if they knew something?

    Everoyone on earth knew we were taking an OLB in the first. Even if people knew we were going 2 TE sets it wouldn't have meant we were looking at one in pick two, much less specifically targeting Fasano. There was absolutely no need for the secrecy.
