    I have watch the Dallas Cowboys undergo a roster overhaul that Parcells has done with precision. I think that there are only 6 or 7 players on this current Cowboys roster that were here when Parcells took over the team three seasons ago. They are Dat, Ellis, Adams, Allen, Glover, Roy W., Gurode, and the two recent re-signees Dixon and Scott. Other than that, Parcells has made this entire roster over in his own image. It seems that the last three drafts have produced players that are starters and producing on the field on a weekly basis. The selections in 2003 of Newman over Q. Jammer was tremendous. Al Johnson is a solid strater at Center. Witten in the third round was major. Bradie James has finally come into his own at LB. In 2004, The trade of last year's nuber #1 for this year's #1 was genius. Julius Jones, solid at RB, Steven Peterman is a backup at Guard. Patrick is a stud in the making at WR. Depth in the secondary was chosen with with Nathan Jones and Jaques Reeves. And finally in 2005, Ware, Spears, Burnett, Canty, Barber, Berriault(can't wait to see him on the field next season), Pettite, Ratliff and not to mention other none drafted free agents like T. Thompson, Pepper Johnson, Willie Pile, and others have set the Boys up for the Super bowl run in the near future. I believe the Boys will make the playoffs this season and finish with a record of 10-6. But the Extreme Makeover Run wil be made next season where the Boys will finish 12-4 and play the Colts in the 2007 Super Bowl.

    People make a big deal about roster turnover -- but I think that happens with most teams -- especially bad team. I don't see it as extreme so much as taking out the trash.

    Newman wasn't picked over Jammer. SD took Jammer ahead of us and we ended up taking Roy. We took Newman the following year.

    You've gotta save the good stuff and cut out the bad. It has to happen when teams rebuild.

    Its amazing when you look at our rosters for the last 3 years. The trash that we put out there under the guise of NFL players were amazing.

    I think Parcells spun his wheels the first two years and thus wasted a lot of time, but hes kicked it up in to high gear last year and I expect the same overhaul of the O this off season. Johnson seems too small for his postion. Hes being walked backwards off the line too often. He scares me. We are getting long in the tooth in the O line and need some youth ala the D line. A few more bucks to go along with Petteti and that line will be solid for 10 years.

    The roster talent as tripled or more since 3 years ago. My god, look at some of the old rosters and see if you can either a) not laugh out loud in total disgust or b) even remember some of the names on the list....Man, we were bad for a while there.

    Jammer was the pick if he was on the board. Thanks San Diego!

    Actually the stat that is the best to me is, the starting QB and all the WR from 2002, are no longer with this team, and since then we have replaced almost 1 WR a year, and our passing game has gotten better every year.

    More to do with the QB's than WR's.

    Not sure who's NOT going to be here next year, but we still need to upgrade a few positions:

    WR - will Price stick around? Key and Glenn aren't getting any younger. Will Crayton be back to his old form?
    FS - Davis is not the answer.
    ILB - I'm not sold on Shanle.
    OG - where's Peterman? LA and Rivera will be 70 years old combined.
    OT - Flo is an issue. Will he come back and play at a Pro Bowl form?
    C - Johnson and Gurode are so-so.
    FB - I like Polite, but he's no bulldozer.
    QB - need to start developing a replacement for Drew

    A better all around FB and kicker would be nice for next year.

    Rookie or veteran doesn't matter to me.

    I think BP and Payton are happy with Polite. He seems to be getting more playing time as the season wears and has been making better use of his opportunities.

    Kicker is a big need. I wouldn't be surprised if we bid on one of the vets who hits FA this year.
