    Yes, and right after the draft, and all teams are happy, healthy, and all have rose colored glasses on.

    You are drunk if you think both Shcokey and Cooley are better then witten.
    You are also out to lunch on the Hotel.
    Frankly, I am not even going to bother answering any of the rest....

    Changes Versus 2006 +/-

    QB - Romo for all 16 (hopefully) vs Bledsoe/Romo (+)
    RB - Unchanged
    WR - Unchanged
    TE - Unchanged
    OL - Davis for Rivera (+)

    DL - Unchanged
    LB - Ellis for all 16 (hopefully) vs Ellis about half
    DB - Hamlin/Watkins vs Watkins/Davis (+)

    KO Return - Unchanged
    Punt Return - Unchanged
    Punter - Unchanged
    Kicker - Vandy/Gramatica vs Gramatica (+)
    Coverage Teams - Unchanged

    Coaching Staff - Wholesale Changes Top to Bottom ?????

    I don't think it takes a homer to suggest that at this point we're at least as good as last year personnel-wise. Hopefully stronger at QB, RG & FS.

    Barring dramatic draft impact the real question far and away for 2007 is coaching and chemistry.

    Who would have dreamed back in 2003 when Parcells took over that moving from Parcells to Phillips would be considered by many to be a plus? You'd have been laughed out of the room.

    Are we Super Bowl contenders in 2006? How much do you believe in the coaching staff changes?

    Oh really? Why is Witten (759 yards [11.8 ypc]and 1 TD) better then Cooley (734 yards [12.9 ypc] and 7 TDs) and Shockey (623 yards [9.4 ypc] and 7 TDs)

    Cooley?!?!?

    Pfft.

    Please.

    And by the way, Colombo signed a two year deal, not one.

    San Fran's secondary?!?!?

    Another gem.

    Why not tell us that Sean Taylor can actually cover me while you're at it!

    I am willing to say it's lateral between Shockey and Witten. But Cooley is def better...

    It would require me to explain football to you, so I will pass as I think it would be an exercise in futility.

    Okay, sorry, I didn't know Colombo signed a two year, I thought it was one. And please, elaborate, why is Cooley worse then Witten? San Fran's top three CBs (I didn't say secondary) ARE better then yours. Nate Clements > Newman and Walt Harris is WAY better then Glenn.

    I aim to please.

    :D

    I'm sorry, but if you think there is an NFL team anywhere that would take Cooley over Witten you're simply deluded. I like the kid, but man, be serious.

    Clements and Newman are debatable. Henry is the 2nd corner, not Glenn.

    But if you would be so kind, why are Clements, Harris, and the unnamed 3rd corner better than the 'boys trio?

    Because those guys aren't Cowboys and our trio are.

    You aim to please me??? Wow, full service... Thanks:)

    Okay, again, I ask, why do you think that? I mean, unless you know that for a fact (as in, you personally talked to every GM), tell me why.

    And maybe he likes the fact that San Fran has red (similar to burgundy) in their uniforms colors.

    Career 252 2838 11.3 42 14 Witten
    Career 314 3609 11.5 59 24 Shockey
    Career 165 1822 11.0 66 19 Cooley

    Pretty much even at that look. Then you look closer
    G C YD AV L TD FD
    2004 WAS 16 37 314 8.5 31 6 23 Cooley
    2005 WAS 16 71 774 10.9 32 7 44
    2006 WAS 16 57 734 12.9 66 6 33


    2002 NYG 15 74 894 12.1 30 2 49 Shockey
    2003 NYG 9 48 535 11.1 46 2 29
    2004 NYG 15 61 666 10.9 38 6 32
    2005 NYG 15 65 891 13.7 59 7 46
    2006 NYG 15 66 623 9.4 25 7 37


    2003 DAL 15 35 347 9.9 36 1 18 Witten
    2004 DAL 16 87 980 11.3 42 6 44
    2005 DAL 16 66 757 11.5 34 6 40
    2006 DAL 16 64 754 11.8 42 1 37


    And you see how remarkably steady Wittens production has been over the last 3 years.
