    Bobby Wagner would have been a great addition to this team. I think most of us here would agree with that position.

    Do you honestly think that the Cowboys would not sell more merchandise, and make more money if they consistently won more games? Jerry might be wrong often, but to believe winning isn't important to him is pretty far fetched. Maybe even delusional.

    Thats all fine but its already known that dallas wouldve picked brockers if they couldnt trade up for claiborne. So all that other stuff means nothing.

    And Burict was passed by alot of teams because of off the field issues. Bengals pick those guys no matter what problems. It just so happens this time its been a winner for them.

    Decastro was bad in his rookie yr. And wasnt much better this yr, and took out his own player(POUNCEY) on a chop block on a defensive player

    I'd trade 4 Claibornes for Brockers and Wagner.

    Heck, make that a half dozen. Give me an impact player over somebody completely reliant on other players to do his job at a respectable level.

    Isn't it possible that with all turnover on the roster the last 3 years that the Cowboys are actually rebuilding and more of the new additions could start paying off next year? The same way the line shaped up this year and the same way Murray got his first 1000 yard season, Dez had his first complete season after coming on the second half of last year. Church just had his first complete year, Beasley has found him a role, Harris came on better than ever this year. These are all new guys that are just starting to pay off and it likely that some more new guys will start paying off next year too. They rebuilt with Parcells and and had a 6-10 and back to back 9-7 records before it really paid off.

    Yes, it is possible. Ware, Witten and Romo are the only old guard elite players left but only Romo needs to remain relevant. If Dallas can replace the production of Ware and Witten, they could be better.

    I have to agree, there is a lot to do on defense and Romo's back issue is a MAJOR concern to me.

    He'd obviously rather be in control and lose than win with someone else making the decisions and getting the credit.

    Does he want to win? Probably, but only doing it his way, which doesn't work.

    Brockers/Wagner > Claiborne.

    Decastro also was injured in his rookie year. Despite his problems, he'll likely be a longterm solid starter on their OL.

    Or having a defense that isn't at the bottom of the league and Dallas probably beats at least two to three teams it lost to and finishes 10-6, wins the East and gets beaten in the first round because it still isn't quite good enough. Just a couple more stops by the defense would have made that difference.

    so decastro was injured as a rookie and wasnt too good this yr but he gets a pass because he will be a solid starter in the nfl. But Mo had a decent rookie yr and was injured his 2nd yr but wont be a solid starter?

    I would love to see that.

    But we never seem to make the right move before it just degenerates to a crisis.

    I think Dallas is closer to a 6 win team. That is not to say they could win 10 next year....that is today's nfl. One thing depressing though it is pretty clear Dallas is getting further and further away from the top teams. And with several key payers leaving their elite window, I expect the gap to continue to widen moving forward.

    That's just it. Our only salvation. He will NEVER be the face of the franchise. Not in a positive aspect anyway.

    He'll forever be the buffoon who floundered in self-inflicted mediocrity. A footnote in Dallas Cowboy history, IMO. An era reflected in the record books with very little to nothing.

    And when it's all said and done.......some other team will have the biggest stadium in all the land.

    With the right system in place, a turnaround is never far away. And who knows? If Garrett gets it figured out, he may institute the right system yet.
