    I'm just waiting for the folks that try to defend our stupidity in passing on Marcus Mcneil to jump in with" an o-lineman wont play his rookie year anyway"

    Man you gotta start somewhere. I would sure rather have Mcneil going into his second year over having to spend a first for a guy with his talent next year, even if he had been a back up for us this year.

    How about people defending it by saying he has spinal stenosis and no one knows if he'll play for more than a year or two?

    Based solely on need, we should draft 6 offensive lineman, and a placekicker(not necessarily in that order).

    Ayear or two? Gimme a break! His diagnosis was never that serious, tons of people and pro athletes have similar conditions and live to a ripe old age without ever developing syptoms.

    For a late second round pick with top ten ability, that argument is a joke, bottom line we need guys like him BAD!

    Could you please identify these 'people'?
    In, 2021, McNeill will retire at a Mission Valley bookstore, by signing copies of his autobiography, "My 15 Years and 5 Superbowls as a Charger".
    The spinal stenosis was a mis-diagnosis, and that's where the rap must end.

    Hartwell wasnt nearly as talented nor versitile like Thomas is. Thomas can line up situationally in any position on the front seven. But the way our defense is played, it wouldnt matter. If we get a new defensive coordinator and Adalius Thomas, that would be a dominating defense right there. Can you imagine Ware and Thomas coming in off the edge on play, then Thomas lining up at DT the next play, running a zone blitz while he drops into coverage, and gets a pick that he takes to the house? ...I can dream cant I?

    Ok. I will define them as the GMs of 31 teams in the NFL. McNeill, had he not had the spinal disorder would have been a top 15, possibly top 10 pick. 31 teams passed on him. Why? The spinal disorder.

    I'm glad you can tell the future. Call Jerry now, so we can get you on the college scout team. Better yet, can I get the lotto numbers for the week?

    Any chance Merriweather will be around by the time we pick in the 1st?...or is he still even considered a 1st rounder?

    all these gomers whinning about McNeil. Since he is the FIRST rookie OT in how many years who is tearing up the league that makes passing on him due to the spinal situation STUPID? NOW THAT IS DUMB. After the Rogers mess, there was NO WAY we were going to take another tackle that had to be considered damaged goods.

    The Cowboys have so many needs, I would like a fast power back but our offensive line needs to be addressed along with OLB/DE...
