    I can understand the "F" to an extent.

    Losing Ware was a costly hit. Hatcher a little less so.

    I think the media see's Austin as being more valuable than what he actually has been, especially last season.

    Want a good grade? Spend a lot. You see it every year. The Eagles were a dream team. The Redskins win the off season Championship almost every year.

    Save cap room and not sign big contracts? No soup for you.

    The funny thing is, a lot of posters here applauded not paying the prices for Peppers and Allen, or for Ware. They laughed and said the Redskins paid too much for Hatcher. The exact same posters will be in this thread saying we goofed and this article is a foundation.

    Everything we do is wrong. Every single time.

    Of course not. Jerry must have impregnated all of their wives the way they all hate him.

    If I didn't know any better I'd swear this is cap hell.

    I actually really like what we have done so far. I think Garretts playbook is going to be modified and/or gone all together. We changed our offensive play caller. We changed our defensive coordinator. We have multpile live young athletic bodies along the DL that will be part of a rotation (which is NECESSARY for the defense we want to run)

    We moved on from some aging vets whose productivity was not nearly worth their price tag

    We picked up a QB that was a 1st rounder 2 years ago....to groom as a backup

    We played a lot of young guys on defense last year that were thrown into a touogh situation and had to learn on the fly...there is a good chance some of them will stick

    We get Lee and Claiborne back from injuries

    Our young guys on the OL (Smith, Leary, Fredercik) got a ton of game experience and suited up every week

    There is only so much you can do in a offseason when you finish 8-8 3 straight years and are WAY over the cap. As frustrating as this team has been....we played the last game of the season 3 straight years with a "win and you are in" scenario. As much as Jerry will not admit it...we have been rebuilding...so hopefully the young guys are ready to take the next step. I personally think we did not get worse. And we are fixing our cap

    The only thing I would like to see this team do is add a veteran reliable WR. And a reliable RB to compliment Murray. I love the talent of Dez and Terrance...but Dez is still growing into a student of the game....and Terrance is going into his 2nd year. With a veteran QB like Romo...I would love to pair him with a veteran WR....in an effort to maximize what I see is a 2 year window for Romo to make a deep playoff run.

    I remember that, the Eagles signed one big name after another, and in the end it didn't help at all.

    We knew all along we were going to be heavily dependent for improvement on the draft this year, so let them blast away.

    What we have done so far may make us a better team in the future but there is no doubt we are worse off for 2014.

    I feel a little guilty belly laughing about our cap issues now.

    I think the same is true for Ware. I'm sorry but he will never again be that 20 sack guy and I'm willing to bet he never reaches

    Seems like a "catch 22" for the Cowboys FO... if they would've kept Ware and Hatcher, Cowboys would've received a "D" for re-signing aging vets. Ridiculous.

    No. I wouldn't expect anyone to get 20 sacks in a season but there's a good chance Ware will get more sacks next year than Jeremy Mincey gets in his Cowboys career.

    Just stating that the writers for ESPN Dallas are really bad......Can you name on that is decent? I am not saying that the Cowboys don't deserve a fair amount of criticism. They certainly do.

    Not me. I still believe we made the right decisions. I don't like the management that got us here but as I've said before... Positive baby steps.

    I think the ESPN Dallas writers are far better than the slop they have writing for the team website.

    Conflicting statements.

    We all knew the team wasn’t going to be a super bowl contending team in 2014, so making moves for the future are actually good moves.

    Whoever wrote this is not a messenger, but a misguided “now” person.

    Whether or not we’re worse off for 2014 is kind of irrelevant if the moves made were overall moves for us, don’t ya think?
