    Yeah, even if Sims is healthy, really liked what I saw from him. He's athletic, instinctive,a great tackler, and he can cover. To top it all off, he can play pretty much anywhere on D.. Really been impressed with him since training camp.

    Sims and Albright at ILB. Connor should only be used on obvious unning plays.

    I was shocked at how well Albright covered the flats.

    Rainey is one of the fastest players in the league and by some miracle he was able to stay with him.

    Maybe not shocked, but yeah, he was pretty damn good.

    Im down with Albright and Sims. Buy if we were not so beat up this year we could really make a run. One good offseason and we could be super talented next year.

    This is the mistake many of us fans make every year. You can't expect this team to pick up next year where they left off this year. It just simply doesn't work like that.

    Well of course this is true, although I will say with another good offseason we have a chance to do it. It is hard to pick up where you left off the year before cause other teams make upgrades, get improvement from within, change coaches, schedule can become more difficult, etc.

    But with another good offseason (easier said than done cause it would have to fall really good), this team really could make some real noise next year at the top of the NFC.

    Any chance Sims will be back for the NO game?

    If we shore up our OL and DL in the off-season, we should be good to go next year. We're set at corner. Clairborne, Carr, and Scandrick. I'd love to keep Jenkins but don't see how we possibly can. We're set at ILB. We're also set at OLB as long as we resign Spencer. If not, then we have a big hole to fill. We certainly could use help at safety, but then again, with all the injuries there we really don't know what we have right now. Church and Johnson??? We're good at TE and WR, although I wouldn't mind picking up another WR. We'll lose Felix, so we will need another RB, but our starter is obviously on the rooster.

    Overall, we need to concentrate free agency and the draft on both lines and maybe a safety. The rest will be for depth.

    He looks much more comfortable at ILB which is odd as a former college DE. His athleticism shows much more at ILB. He IMO appeared stiff and slow in the past when playing OLB. Yesterday, that was not the case at all.

    Albright should start alongside Sims, imo. I would absolutely LOVE our depth if we went into next season with Carter and Lee manning the starting ILB spots with Sims and Albright as the backups. Sick group there. Albright looks like the real deal and Sims shows why he was a first round pick.

    How fortunate are we to have Sims and Albright as depth on this team.

    Not sure I agree. This team in the past has collapsed in the face of an injury or two and the slightest bit of adversity paralyzed them. I don't see it with this team, meaning the culture is changing to go along with an already very talented young roster.

    I was so impressed with Albright the last two weeks that I think Dallas needs to find a way to keep him with 1st team next year. Wonder if he can slide outside to OLB and rush passer?

    Seems unlikely that he will be back just one week after a concussion

    I vote to give him 100 percent of Victor Butler's snaps starting yesterday.

    I like fact Dallas in using depth and staff might have backup talent at linebacker position. Really like too see Rob play more aggressive.
