    i've been kind of negative on spencer in the past.

    did not really feel he was doing what he was brought here to do which was be a pass rusher .

    but here the past few weeks he has been an absolute beast rushing the passer and stopping the run.

    i want him to turn rg3's lights out manana

    He has been playing well, but is he playing for that next contract? Do the Cowboys risk signing him to another 3-4 year deal? IDK, part of me wants him to stay, the other part wants them to draft his replacement.

    He's in a contract year, he has extra incentive to make plays. Some team will look at his production this season and offer him way too much money, and he'll end up walking. which is why we need to draft a DE/OLB in the draft or sign one in FA.

    he was in a contract year last year. while the coaches are likely pleased with his production the last few weeks, I'm pretty sure they were happy with what he brought to the table last year. Only this fan base believes it's a given we can upgrade his spot.

    Spencer isn't playing that much better then he has for years now, but when people look at his stats at the end of the season they'll cry about sacks again. Watch him play and you see why he got tagged, he's good at what he does, really good

    He was in a contract year last year too and didnt produce this way, I think it just clicked. I wouldn't mind drafting a top player if we can but I don't want a rookie starting on the strong aide. I trust Spencer so I would just franchise him again.

    I said last year Spencer deserved a Ahmad Brooks like deal. SF gave him a new deal and Spencer is better. Just saying let Spencer walk and draft his replacement is stupid, who you going to get. I will take Spencer over a not sure thing.

    Two words: contract year

    I can see him pulling a Ken Hamlin.

    Last year was a contract year too, I say tag him again if he doesn't want to sign a cap friendly deal. What do you do if he walks.

    I believe they'll get him a long term deal this offseason.

    He probably had a pretty good idea from his agent that the franchise tag was a serious option with him.

    The problem is "what he does" isn't good enough. Let's not act like this defense has been stellar in the past. We've been an extremely one dimensional pass rushing team. Block Ware and the Cowboys have nobody to pressure the QB.

    The thought of handing him a long term extension as he plays into his 30's and either expect more or accept the same is troubling to me.

    I'm tired of the guys who only get sacks getting all the press and praise. we have two outside backers who are all around, three down players. I just wish we could use the roster spots we save by not having extra situational guys to fill a few other holes.

    Id like to see him here long term. I like what he brings. let's focus on our most critical areas of need instead of creating more

    He will be 29 in Jan, so a 4-5 deal where he can be cut in the last 2 years if his productivity drops should be ideal. I doubt it happens though, some team that is desperate and thinks it is closer to SB will sign him for very lucrative contract that we cannot match. we should already have a replacement for him on the team, but we do not. We drafter 3 lb's in Wades first year but none of them panned out. Our only hope is that Wilber develops or we luckily hit on OLB in next draft

    we cannot afford the cap hit of either franchizing him again or giving him a long term deal.

    Either one would be too expensive.

    Simple as that.

    With all the work that needs to be done on the O line we cannot afford to put that much money into a player that is not worth that much money
