    Like how fans gave up on Sean Lee after his rookie season?

    Fans need instant gratification. If you don't immediately look like a pro bowler, than you suck. :banghead:

    If Connor doesn't work out, I really hope the Cowboys take a flier on David Hawthorne. Local guy from TCU that has produced very well recently.

    Me too...this would be icing on the cake. If we can get him signed and keep him from the Iggles, it would be doubly nice.

    Scrounge up one of the safeties and we might be done in free agency. Would be a nice haul. Carr would be the flashy one but the rest seem to be guys that can help.

    The one disappointment is not getting Davis. I think he could have been a steal for us.

    Don't ever admit the truth, no one else on this board does. They are all experts with deep throated insiders that let them know exactly what is happening.

    Jerry Jones is a great owner? We know this because he has won one playoff in 16 years.

    I know we're looking at his LB mate Tank Carder.

    That wasn't the point I was trying to make. Kind of a backhanded statement.

    I just hope we don't have to take him in the 3rd after his good combine. I know they won't do it, but I wish Vontaze Burfict wasn't batsh** crazy so we could take him to stop the inevitable fall.

    I do love me some Carder. I don't like all of the arm bands that he wears though.

    thats big money in Hawthorne compared to Connor.

    Connor would be ideal for this team. Can replace Brooking and/or Bradie, not complain about playing time and be steady for the next 4 years.

    Carter is the deafcto starter and i think can be every bit as good as lee is showing, but with better speed.

    Carder's the first kid I can think of to come out of my hometown, so I'm way too invested in that one.

    I figured as much with money. I haven't heard his name out there so I wasn't sure what kind of offers he was getting. Just as long as we keep getting younger, I trust the FO moves.

    Jerry's skills as an owner have never been called into question.

    Sure it has, our owner is hired and who is putting up with our sorry GM. One start of a decent off season can't erase the past 16 years. String a few in a row and start showing it on the field the we will talk decent owner and GM.

    The Cowboys visited with Carolina free agent linebacker Dan Connor on Wednesday and those talks will continue today, coach Jason Garrett said.

    "We're excited to have Dan Connor in, a Penn State guy, drafted by Carolina. He right kind of guy, a very productive player for them, a very productive player in college," Garrett said. "We've had a good visit with him so far and we'll get the chance to visit with him more today and just see where we are and where he is and continue along with this process."
