    And that scares me.

    I was very happy about the Frederick draft pick to help inside but was very hopeful that would still be doing something to help fix RT.

    Disappointed in hearing this news about Clabo.

    me too. However, if we're not signing a T, we need G Moore if he's still available and dump the odd G out. If we are good to go at 4/5 positions, especially the interior...it'll work wonders

    I hope that Jerry isn't trying to go cheap at RT, or the coaching staff really feel that Parnell will ermerge as a solid starter there, and want a cheap vet. for the swing tackle. Maybe Free takes the paycut and is that guy.

    I think that's how it's going to play out.

    so me saying he's only been here for 1 year when you said multiple is me using semantics but you not lying?....that was the only thing i pointed out from your original post. that he's only been here 1 year, not multiple.

    i'm not going to base assessment of a coach on 1 year under injuries, new players together, new positions etc. we'll revisit if nothing changes after this year.

    I put Callahan in a group context, I never mentioned him specifically being here multiple years. That assumption was yours.

    Fair enough. We'll follow up at a later date.

    I have decided Stash. I don't think he is the oline saviour that fans make him out to be. They overlook the fact that he came from the Jets.and their line play had declined under his coaching. He has not made the first decent decision on players since he was hired. I will list my concerns and see if you agree. Tyron's has regressed. Fans can bash Houck all they want, but Tyron played his best football the second half of his rookie season under Houck. Leary was a Callahan player. Callahan hinted that he had plug and play potential as a rookie. How did that player evaluation work out? Then you come to his free agents. Livings and Bernadeau are the definition of jags. Livings was the worst lineman on the Bengals starting five. Bengal fans are still laughing at the Cowboys for signing and overpaying the guy. This was a Callahan signing. He was the one that gave his approval that this was a guy that he could coach and build a line with. Bernadeau was an even worse selection. This guy has the size, but plays soft, very soft. He could not keep a starting job with the Panthers, but he was wanted by Callahan. Another failed selection. He vouched for three players and not the first one have improved and become a decent lineman. The last point may not go over so well and it is in no way a defense for Doug Free, but Free's rapid decline is under Callahan. Yes, Free played much better under Houck's coaching. Free was a decent tackle at one time. Under Callahan, he is one of the worst in the league. To sum this up, what in the hell has Callahan done during his stint as a Cowboy coach that has produced positive results? NOTHING! It has been easy to make a decision about him based on his results.

    Considering Callahan has been here one season, this diatribe is mind-numbingly premature.

    Name one positive Callahan accomplishment while coaching the Cowboys. I listed two players regression and three players that he made bad evaluations on. Make your positive list and get back to me. IIRC he did coach a unit that set a franchise record for fewest rushing yards.

    I'm not the type to evaluate position coaches after one season. That mentality, to me, represents all that is wrong with the modern fan.

    But, if you insist, I think Parnell played quite well considering, and improved a the season went on. Speaking of such, Smith did not give up a sack the second half of the season. But hey, you seem like the type of fan who would use a learning curve as an opportunity to bash a player. Oh, and while Livings was ranked in the 50 as a guard for the Bengals, he greatly improved his play as a Cowboy and was actually ranked as a top 15 guard. But hey, please don't allow facts to get in the way of your premature whine fest.

    Is Parnell getting playing time the only thing you have? That is weak. Tyron's problems wasn't only caused by switching sides. If you could evaluate line play, you would know that.

    Livings being rated at 15 is a joke. It is not worth debating his play. PFF ratings? :laugh2:

    And, as usual, you have absolutely nothing to support your "point."

    The only thing holding me back and screaming bloody murder about the two guards is that they played thru injuries. This year they should be healed and fresh, if they continue to suck then I will cause the same ruckus I have about Free...

    As usual, you don't have a point. There was rumors of Livings being a potential cut this offseason. Teams don't consider cutting the 15th ranked guard when their line is as bad as the Cowboys. Again PFF rankings? I can't blame you for not wanting it known that you are gullible enough to take their rankings as facts.

    Stash schooled you for an hour earlier today. I don't have that much time. I am going to sleep.

    Did any one at any point during last season watching Livings play think to themselves "Gee, I think that guy is one of the better guards in the league."

    The entire PFF grading system should be disregarded. It's not worth anything, one way or another.

    But Livings was not a problem for us last year. He was one of our better OLs, and for a stretch there, I thought he actually was playing better than anyone we had out there.

    He did get rag-dolled against Cincy, though. And his play tailed off late in the year.

    Same goes for the players who just got here a season ago. It was a lot to play thru but they were just awful..

    I'm guessing they get a one year do-over and hopefully with a very short leash, the entire season is resting on the o-line play...
