    Thank you for your post.

    Scandrick plays a very good season. I am happy we have him. Very good slot corner.

    He played well as he usually does. Guy plays maybe the toughest position in football.

    Not sure what some of you are seeing, but i saw more of the same of his usual hand check and grab routine on receivers and no PD's or INT's. Good tackler, but not that great in coverage, imo. Dropped that INT that came right to him when Maclin slipped/was interfered with. Nice hit on Shady though.

    He is always in good position ,he could move to the next level if he can start making the picks. Hes really fast and I noticed that in his rookie season in a preseason game against Texans he was all over the field and is always in great position but doesnt make the play. Hes real close to being great.

    He did not wrap up and it cost us a chance for the game.

    Yesterday he made the same play and almost broke his neck and did not wrap up again, luckily this time the ball carrier went down. He has been holding multiple times on Wr's. He is stupid and does not learn from mistakes, typical of the team at this point!

    Wasn't Ware open field versus Jaquiz Rogers? That is a tough one for anybody.

    Saw more mistakes from him, including penalties that kept us from getting off the field on D. Not happy with him or Claiborne.

    Scandrick is what he is: A marginal player who would benefit immensely from a better d-line. He has a tough job so he has to scratch and claw his way down the field covering some pretty good receivers. He will win some on effort but he is going to lose some as well because of his limitations.

    Seriously? Come on, the Cowboys paid market value for a player of Scandrick's ability. Scandrick, would have had no problem getting a similar contract from most teams and playing for them.

    And if Scandrick isn't there covering the slot WR, who is? Mike 'Business Decision' Jenkins? Sorry coach, back tightened up, can't go this week.

    I was never mad at him. He is a decent player. Never been a superstar, but if the d-line does their job he will do his.

    Don't those two dropped picks count as two passes defended? That is a very important statistic.

    Anyway, Scandrick has hands of stone, and it seems like most of the pass defenders in this league play the receiver, not the ball. I think he's a pretty good player, compared to Jacques Reeves, anyway.

    Reeves will now and forever be my benchmark on Cowboys DB's.

    He needs to work on his catching technique. He looked like he doesn't practice catching the ball very much and it showed with his stone hands yesterday. I did like the way he played though, and I am encouraged that he was making plays on the ball. He just needs to execute when he has the opportunity because they don't come around often and can make or break games.

    I would take Mike Jenkins over Scandrick any day, It's not even close. These are two different players at different levels. Jenkins (although brittle) has All-star potential and Scandrick is starting in the nickel packages only because Jerry Jones is the GM and overpaid him.

    Scandrick is not accountable to me so I do not make up the gratuitous anger that such make believe entails.

    He played well. I like that.

    That's a serious exaggeration. Guys, Orlando Scandrick is making 1.2 mil base salary and just under 3 total right now. That's hardly reaching for a guy like him. Jerry knew the whole contract was high, but its backloaded. The contract isn't bad until

    Scandrick is a guy who gives you an honest 60 min and for the most part is a good coverage man. He doesn't make a lot of big plays, but he's solid and accepts responsibility for his mistakes. You need guys like this on your team.

    People want 50 pro-bowlers on the team, it's just not realisitc.

    I guarantee if you put Scandrick on the market right now, every team in the league would make a claim for him. He's as good as a third/fourth corner as you'll find in the league....fans want him to be Revis, they want all the Cowboy corners to be Revis.
