    They only got Bennett for one year and he isn't even a starter. The situation would have been different in Dallas. He would have been the starter and I think he is more effective as a rotation guy coming off the bench. People would be complaining that he isn't consistent enough if he were in Dallas. And if the Cowboys could have only signed him to 1 year as Seattle did, then that doesn't really help matters now.

    Everything they do is a big mistake. Stadium too big, players over paid, talk too much, hire too many coaches, fire too many coaches, draft the wrong guys, don't draft the right guys, call the wrong plays, can't host the super bowl with the proper number of nose bleed seats, sell ladies underwear, make contracts too big in an uncapped season, get sued cause a woman burnt her butt on the seats outside the stadium, keep old players too long, sign young players too soon, trade up when they should trade down and trade down when they should stay put, give too much when they trade up and dont get enough when they trade down then reach down to make the pick and then let the good players leave and franchise the wrong ones. It's pretty bad.

    yes, its called an opinion, ive had some and ive been right on some and ive been wrong on some. Sorry if i dont get excited over every draft pick. Yes, im so impressed by a WR who catches the ball. Hes a stud, my mistake. Sorry, hes not winning me over, im not as easily won over as many on here.

    He finished his rookie season with 44 receptions for 736 yards (16.7 average) and 5 receiving touchdowns. His totals ranked fourth for most receptions, most receiving yards and most receiving touchdowns by a rookie in franchise history.


    Can't believe I'm even wasting my time with you......

    Williams set a Cowboys' franchise record for rookies, with a touchdown in his 4th consecutive game.

    He is not a starter because of their rotation on the line. Much like how Chad Hennings was not a starter.

    That is how a great DL is built. Granted he is not going to do the same kind of thing again given his success there this year, that is the philosophical approach that has to be taken. None of this evaluating whether the depth is good enough based on Kiffin saying he had to sit on the floor during a meeting because there were too many bodies in the room.

    Giving Ratliff that contract was. We're free of Spencer now financially.

    But we are still thinking about him, which is very troubling. We cannot even move on from a player coming off of microfracture surgery and just cost us about $20 million right of the top the last two years.

    HE'S A ROOKIE! HELLLOOOO?????

    What on Earth do you do on Sundays, because there is now way you watch Football.

    The 1 game that you are most likely referring to where he fumbled on a last second dive towards the end zone to try and score against SD, He followed up with four receptions for 151 yards with one touchdown........

    The biggest mistake we'll make is bringing him back after that surgery.

    Chad Hennings is a good example. He wasn't a starter because there were better options. He provided quality depth and was more effective as a back up. Bennett wouldn't be a back up in Dallas, he would be the starter. If you told me Dallas could get Bennett for quality depth because they also had a capable starter then I'm in. That would not have been the case. Bennett would have been the starter and he doesn't fill that role. They would still need quality depth behind him. You also still have the issue of signing him to a long term contract this year if he did have some success as the starter. He was cheap last year because his overall production in Tampa was rather lackluster.

    No, the biggest mistake was thinking our "head coach in training" was going to improve upon back to back 500 seasons.

    I was merely responding to this about Terrence Williams.

    We can debate the terms "winning me over "and "excited" which are all your words not mine. Like you said they are merely "opinions "

    I just don't understand how He can't make a fan of the Cowboys feel good, happy, or "winning you over". Not only because of where we got him in the draft but also the Rookie season that he put up.

    So I really must ask you, what would it take for a 3rd round rookie wide receiver to win you over?
