    OK, this is much ado about nothing.

    According to ESPN Dallas:

    How on earth can people complain about this...minimally, Costa is servicable, minimally...IMO, if we bring in one new guard next to him paired with Livings, and we use a higer pick on RT, then the line will be pretty good, if healthy...

    ...this deal is cheap and is only for two years...if we dumped the whole thing before he plays another down, it's only $2.7m...that is not a lot. And, if he ends up being a player like he was in the Baltimore game, then the contract is a steal for the Cowboys

    Fredd approves!

    I would much rather he be gone but that is pretty cheap. Probably the best we could hope for with Jerruh slobbering all over him

    Wow, why is it you bring this up, i.e. Costa benefiting because Nagata was injured yet the previous season when Costa was at his worst, he was also injured– yet there is no acknowledgement of that.

    So he put Ngata out of the game then.

    Its plain for all to see that you have staked your reputation on Costa being terrible. Myself, I prefer to stake my rep on things that are good for the team.

    I am just pointing out you can characterize it however you like. Costa was on Ngata while he was in there and Ngata could not stay in the game. We were dominating even when he was out there.

    burm has a vested interest in Costa sucking. If he doesn't then he looks like he has no idea what he is talking about because it's been a pretty constant refrain from him for two years.

    It's still up in the air whether or not Costa can succeed.

    Over and under that he gets a back injury or becomes a head case is 3 games. I'm taking the under. Costa is a joke!

    Fuzzy is as usual

    He dominated someone when the running game chalks up 200+ yards.

    It's like picking your favorite member of Milli Vanilli.

    Cook is terrible, but he was acquired in a pinch due to injury. Costa, believe it or not, is seen as a potential piece for the future. His presence on this roster effects what we do at the position. Cook's presence doesn't. They see him for what he is. A scrub.

    It's about what the team thinks of the player and how it effects their personnel moves.

    Seems like being injured is a great way to get an extension around here.

    HE dominated someone? Maybe a backup to Ngata

    So one backup dominates another and you annoint him a Pro Bowler?

    and you DO REMEMBER that the previous week the Chiefs- with NO PASSING GAME AT ALL- ran very well vs the Ravens.

    At that time the only guy on the Raven's front playing well at all was Ngata and he got injured early on in our game.

    So making anything out of ONE GAME OF THE YEAR is pretty THIN.
