    Whether its the defensive line or offensive line I think we need to poor a ton of resources into one of those units and build a STRENGTH for this team.

    Our D Line sucks but we've already got Tyron and Garrett's scheme is so bad that maybe the O Line is the way to go.

    OL and DL are never bad ways to go.

    JJ's been enamored with building the D from the back forwards (see all his failed attempts at CB's).

    Build from the trenches.

    Not rocket science.

    Oh we'll definitely poor the lines. That is Jerry Jones' specialty.

    Agree and I would start with the def line and just tweak the off line. This team needs an identity, so I look forward to Doomsday II.

    We have more stable pieces on def to accomplish a dominant D, just the line needs work and maybe a safety.

    Yeah I'm fine either way. You can't have everything in Salary cap football.

    I love me some Brandon Carr but I'd rather have 2 beast linemen over him.

    49ers have the beast O Line. Giants took down Brady twice with D Line.

    This teams strength currently is Romo and his ability to make a play out of the crap Garrett calls.

    So, you think one drafted off lineman will fix 3 spots with a good chance Garrett still calling plays fixes the problem?

    I will not count on JJ to fix the line properly, so I would just assume make the defense dominant.

    Tired of having both mediocre side, want one dominant one to start.

    You can keep your comments to yourself. I never do that crap to you or anyone else on their opinions.

    dallas needs to build a unit that can carry us to victory 2-3 times a season. right now, 95% of our games are Romo or bust. it can't be like that anymore. we need to either build a defense, a running game or even a special teams unit that can put the team on their back and carry us to victory when romo is off his game.

    That 49ers O-line had three first round picks. It ain't cheap if you want to have a dominant unit.

    Don't take it personal man. It's just a message board opinion.

    Risen Star has done a drive by on all of us. It's no big deal.

    If we get 1 quality OL in FA, and even use our 2nd rounder, for example, on another OL, we should have a pretty good OL (at least better than we've had in years). The key is to hit on that draft pick.

    Romo will still come up shorter than Bushwick(Bill)

    Romo doesn't have the stomach for the big game fight.

    Romo is a less talented version of Peyton Manning

    Romo would have thrown 5 picks against the 9er's or Packers defense.

    Romo doesn't have skill, poise, to compete at this level.

    I don't care what kind of line you bring in, these facts will never change.

    Draft picks aren't expensive anymore.

    No. There is no magic formula outside of drafting well.

    While I'm in favor of building the line, it means we should trade Romo and maybe Ware and Witten. By the time a line is built, Romo will be past it.

    I hate to tell you but Romo beat that defense with a cracked rib and a punctured lung.
