    For all those who didn't appreciate what we had leading our defense in Dat Nguyen, I say stand up and face the consequences of your folly.

    Genuflect before his greatness. We no longer have an experienced leader on the linebacker core to help the rooks and newbies line up and recognize plays. One of the very last things he did was call out for a shovel pass to help us win a crucial game.



    Stand up I say and face the wrath of those who really love the star! :mad:

    oh good god - put the cup of drama down and move along. why is it people take THEIR favorite players and demand retribution at the slightest inkling their favorite player WAS ALL THAT.

    genuflect??? dude, this is football NOT religion. i swear some people get all drama-fied at times.

    Never in my life have a seen a player get so much traction from one play than I have from Dat Nguyen and the called shovel pass. In the legacy of Dat Nguyen passed on to future Cowboy fan generations, it will go down in revisionist history that the Cowboys never had a poor run defense with Dat Nguyen because he frequently, if not always knew the upcoming play, and aligned everyone up accordingly thanks to that shovel pass. All memories of him being planted on his kiester play after play by the lead blocker will be all but forgotten. In many ways, the injury is the best thing that ever happened to his legacy, because he now gets the Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain treatment.

    Dat is what he is ... a nice little player who got the most out of his god given abilities, but not a difference maker.

    he wasn't "great" but he was an intelligent leader of our defense. the only leader in my eyes.

    many of us felt this was his last season here and wanted younger players to begin to learn the system however.

    he had his shortcomings, but he did more than call the shovel pass this year. That is not even on his top 100 plays list. Dat has made a difference over the seasons, he was just never a all star or playmaker. I can live with that.

    Agreed. He's been the most solid, consistent player on our defense for the last 5 years.

    I'm shocked and dismayed that a football observer of your standing could be so unapreciative of the contributions of our former defensive leader. :eek:

    He was a "nice little player" that provided the much needed leadership required to bring our cowboys to a 7 and 3 record. I point to our record since his departure. How can you look at our present record and not feel the bite of his absence? Shanle? Fujita? Fowler? Please. Only Bradie James has remained unconfused and effective in the face of a leaderless half season. Do you not see how Demarcus Ware wanders aimlessly in confusion and despair? Open your eyes and join me in mourning the loss of our great player and defensive leader.

    sorry to offend your sensibilties by my language. let me try to help you.

    I tink that dat was a good player. he gave us good leadership and cowboys the, are not as good at playing now he no longer plays at that linebacker spot.

    better?

    nope. i can never take anyone seriously who at ANY POINT IN THEIR LIFE said "genuflect to their greatness" in reference to a football player and not a renegade babe. : )

    like i said, the need for drama seems to outweigh the need for common sense. can't tell if you're just kidding around, but am losing interest.

    carry on.

    Dat was out early in season and our D played great for a big stretch.

    I like Dat but the transformation is happening likely without him. One more draft and we are there.

    Let's not pretend that Shanle is Brian Urlacher, and neither was Dat by any stretch of the imagination, but I would gladly take tiny Dat back over Shanle. Give me Singleton over Fujita too, until we can find/draft some LBs that would actually make it on most other teams rosters.

    I didn't ask the question to bash steriod boy. I just don't understand someone saying he somehow led us to a 7-3 record when he was hardly on the field.
