    I was thinking the same - but a real emphasis on the MORE would be good.

    Yikes.. day 1 over Sims or Durant? Sims has been making plays all over during TC and Durant has been solid as well.

    I think Holloman could play some nickle LB for us right now at times, but he'd get run over if he started in the base D, imo.

    I don't think he's near ready for that yet.

    Holloman is making the plays in the games and last time I checked that's when it really matters LOL

    Loved the pick in the 6th round and laughed at the naysayers. I had the good fortune of watching him contribute to the recent success of my Gamecocks. Player player player. Slice it up any way you'd like and he still comes out ahead.

    Swearinger is going to be a beast too. He sure would have fit perfectly at safety. We could have had him when we drafted Escobar. I hope Esco pans out.

    He made a couple plays in coverage.. the one he was right place, right time, the other was a nice read and react for the pick.

    Other than that, he really hasn't done much, and hasn't shown much against the run. He def has many things to work on, and i don't think he's anywhere close to as complete a player as Sims right now.

    The ball goes backwards. It was not a forward pass. His arm going forward was besides the point. The ball still goes backwards

    No kidding, Its like they never check where the ball lands. If it lands behind the passer it is a fumble no matter the arm motion.

    He has potential. I don't see him breaking the starting lineup this season barring injury, but he could down the road. From what we've seen, he has some speed and very good hands. I hope he continues to develop.

    It goes backwards because it was batted backwards.. that's why it popped up so high in the air.

    ..and yes it absolutely matters if his arm has started going forward or not.. if it did, its an incomplete pass, if it didn't its a fumble.

    If a QB throws a pass and a DL knocks it down at the line, it usually goes backwards then, too.. does that mean that is also a fumble?

    He is still making rookie mistakes. That will keep him from starting until later this year if at all. But next year, look out.

    When we drafted him one of my good friends who played starting lb in college for 3 years called me And said he's going to be a steal. He dropped because of the switch to Lb. he'll probably start by middle of the year

    If you go can find his draft thread you will see a lot of us in there convinced that he looks way better then where he was drafted.

    He's a perfect fit for this scheme.

    it seemed to me holloman hit him solely on the elbow.. never touching the ball. But I could be wrong... Eitherway, to me, it couldnt have been time more perfectly, right before the arm started moving forward devonte hit him on the elbow and the ball came loose. txt book fumble. would love to see a replay now though

    I didn't see where the ball was batted. Looked to me like he hit his forearm/elbow and the ball left the Qbs hand and went backwards

    Hlloman has looked good, I'm not ready to see him repace Simms or Durant but it shows me Dallas has some quality depth at LB
