We all know how much of a change bill has made since he got here. not every move he made was successful but he has more than made up with it thru this years draft and FA. However I am starting to notice bill is setting us up for ultimate superbowl success and long term success. First of all Bill rebuilt our defense. the defense changed to a 3-4 and along with the addition of the many fa's and draft picks on that side of the ball, our defense has been playing like a top 5 defense in the league. Secondly bill brought in a vet QB who can get the job done. Whether or not our team progresses enough to win a superbowl while Drew is still starting remains to be seen, but he is playing very well and without drew i fear we would be at hte bottom of teh nfc east and missed out on a big season where we actually can compete with any team in the league. Bill has not only set us up for the future, but at the same time set us up for the present to win now. and this is contrary to what everyone said last year that bill is a win now guy and only gets vets and that once he left our team would fall apart. Now we KNOW this isnt true. Our Defense is set for teh next 5-10 years for the most part. What this is leading up to is the eventual drafting of a QB to take over. This is my main point here, Bill built the team first before bringing in a young QB to play. He's doing everything he possibly can to setup our future QB for success and hopefully the super bowl. - he got OL help, and will continue to do so again next year. Rivera has at times been solid and at times down, but still a good pickup imo. - he transformed the D from a soft reactionary D to a defense that actually gets turnovers/sacks/fumbles and is capable of winning the game with a little help from the offense - RB is set. we have THREE young rb's who can share the load. This means when our young QB comes in to play, we dont have to rely on him to win the game, just to manage it. This allows the QB to progress without having to worry about "are we giving up the season by starting him". - Next Stage will be: Drafting a playmaking WR, drafting depth for the OL, and drafting the QB will be the final piece of the puzzle. When we do draft the next Staubach, the next Aikman they will be in the perfect opportunity to succeed. They will be coming to a team that can dominate TOP and has offensive playmakers. To get this QB I think we are gonna do one of two things. 1) Get the QB this year. This is the least likely of the two. Our pick this year is too high to get a top notch QB and vince young and brady quinn( IMO the two people bill and the boys really want) are coming out next year. So we might get a guy in the later end of the 1st, but i doubt any of the top qb's fall to us, and I doubt there will be a qb good enough to select with our first pick. 2) Trade down this year to get teh qb next year. Bill has done this before and I wouldnt be surprised at all to see it happen again. Bill trades down in the first or outta the first to the 2nd round this year for a 2nd this year and a first next year. We have 2 2nd rounders this year, and two firsts next just like the JJ trade. If nobody this year falls to us that Bill really likes I think this happens. It sets us up for 2007 and the Brady Quinn sweepstakes. We have two #1's and can trade up to get Quinn if need be. Quinn becomes a cowboy, sits one year (or not depending on how well Bledsoe's health is)and then replaces Bledsoe and leads us to the superbowl( if Bledsoe hadnt already won it.) This is Bill's ultimate plan and its pure genius. This is exactly how you setup a superbowl team, and is similar to the Steelers when they got Roth. Their running game, WR, OL, and defense were already setup, they just needed the last piece of the puzzle, and it allowed Ben to get off to an extremely good start of his career. They are now and will be super bowl contendors for the next 5-10 years because of their team setup. This will be the cowboys 1-2 years from now.
