    I know I may get heat for this, but Couch wasn't exactly a master of the WC offense, but I wouldn't mind if he were brought in to be the back up. He's got experience and I would trust him more then Romo. There I said it.

    Now that interests me. I'd take him over Romo.

    Won't happen of course.

    He could be the Vetern QB that Troy said we needed. Just not sure if Bill thinks we need one at this point.

    Wow a team that wasn't afraid to cut someone just because he was a veteran at a key position.

    If you play like crap, you should be cut.

    Tell me again why Eddie George is still on the team? Let's trade him for Miami for a can of V-8 and move on.

    Maybe we can get Jamar back on the team.

    Wow, that is pretty surprising. I would really like the Cowboys to bring him in. Of course, what would we do with Romo then? I don't think he would clear waivers.

    But I think Parcells and Payton could work wonders with Couch. I think they could make him into a very good QB because they would work with his strengths and not try and force him into a certain system.

    Plus, Couch would offer Henson (or Romo) another year or two to develop. I doubt Testaverde is back next year.

    I would sleep better if Couch were our Back up.

    We are not going to bring in a sub-30 year old QB with Henson and Romo in the wings.

    Couch could not handle the pressure of CLEVELAND, then he completely folds in the shadow of Favre. Bring him into Dallas with the ghosts of Staubach and Aikman over his head with two young QBs behind him and it would look like a scene from Scanners...KABOOM!

    Not to mention his major issue was the same as Carter's - his decision making.

    At least that is how it appears.

    If he can't make it in Cleveland or GB I doubt he would make it under Parcells wraith.

    A better and maybe slightly more mentally tougher CHutch.

    Now watch him pull a Maddox.

    You are so quick to slam George but not his blocking FB? I don't see that much loss there actually with his cut. Our RB play behind Martin isn't hasn't been so stellar. Blocking FB's are a dime a dozen. Barnes is a ST demon.

    Polite may be on PS?

    there has been much debate here over QB's and their lack of development (See endless Hutch/QC threads), but how does one really know someone is actually going to be "It" when time comes to man the center.

    Let's talk about the guy who is consider a good QB - Favre. Time was I remember a Dallas team playing against a younger Favre and watching this guy piss off Holmgren so much that he was ready to chew this guy's butt and shove it up the hole it was attached to. In general terms you would have to characterize Favre's early years as careless with the ball and poor decision making. At least that's what I saw in the two back to back first round playoff losses to Dallas in 95 and 96(??).

    How did we know this guy was going to be a Vicodin addicted star? As much as I knew he was a nineties version of Gary Hogeboom. Big arm and stupid interceptions.

    Now with "Ouch" who's to say that he can't overcome his problems. Collins did and I remember when he gave up football. The boards were all over him as a "quitter" and a "drunk".

    Examples of Vinny, Rich Gannon, Warner and (geez I could never remember the guy who won with Tampa) tells me that a career can be made with the right place and the right situation. Short of losing your physical tools most of the so called "cast offs" could probably have productive careers.

    This league could end up seeing Tim Couch win the 2009 SuperBowl MVP even though he has been branded in 2004 with decision making problems.

    Could it be any worse than seeing Jake Delhomme throw up free balls that end up as touchdowns in 2004?

    One green QB in Henson and a very experienced younger player in Romo a year plugged in. I'm ok with QB. Don't want Couch in here.

    Yeah, those 40 some odd passes in 6 preseason games he's played in make him a proven commodity.

    Where did he get all this experience? I don't understand your reasoning.
