    Would he be more reliable than Sean Lee? How about Claiborne? Maybe Spencer? I'll leave the meathead part out when referencing all players.

    Why would he have low standards for assuming what is likely true? You can't make any player or person not do stupid things or say stupid things.

    RKG guys are what is left after you remove the worst of the bad apples.

    NO I don't want Brent back he's a liability and his performances never make a impact

    If Josh Brent was coming out of the draft this year, with his off the field troubles, would the Cowboys draft him? If not then you shouldn't bring him back if so then you should.

    He's a known commodity vs the draft which is unknown. BTW, I want him to do well. If that's playing then fine. If not then what keeps him sober and fills the hole in his heart.

    What do we know about him that would compel the Cowboys to want to bring him back? You know when teams took a risk on TO, they had to weigh talent and potential contribution vs the headaches having him on the team may bring, same with Vick. In those cases those players were once pro bowlers and still in their primes, you'll noticed once TOs production and age caught up with him teams weren't "looking past" his off field stuff anymore.

    Probably because, despite their obvious skill, they think football might not be important enough to them (i.e., they're doing it for the money, or the fame, or for whatever reason). Also, there's the obvious group of players who aren't a scheme fit. There are only a couple dozen players on a team's draft board to begin with. It's not all that hard to winnow it down to both the physical, mental, and emotional makeup you're looking for. The question is, what are the emotional/mental characteristics you want, and which do you want to weed out.

    First thing first....this isn't Eric Williams we are talking about. This was a marginal DT. If you think this team is a marginal DT away...then we have a gap between reality and fantasy here that needs to be ironed out first. After that....lets assume he wants to play football again, the NFL will slap 1 year suspension on his rear end for guilty verdict. If Dallas can't replace a marginal DT in draft then none of this matters.

    Not really. Independent of whether he should come back, Brent was a good rotational DT when he was on the field. If you could find someone at that level on any practice squad the Cowboys wouldn't have had the weekly tryout of street free agents you saw last season. They played 16 different players on the D Line last year. They also would have likely won another game or two and been in the playoffs if solid DL were that easy to pick up.

    Agree 100%

    I doubt Brent will change. He's had multiple chances. I don't think it's worth the risk. It's not like he's Wilfork.

    On the first DUI that should make a person think maybe i should call someone to drive me home. On his second chance he has 17 drinks that should really tell you not to get into the car. On his third chance.......OK there is no third chance. No don't take him back end of story.

    We fall in love with our own players too much, what I'm saying is that Brent is nothing more than Nick Hayden a decent rotational player but if he's your starter then you're looking in the draft or fa to replace him. Without the off field stuff Brent should be in a fight to make the squad every camp, with the off field stuff he shouldn't be invited to camp. If keeping Brent is going to make or break your season then we're in trouble anyway.

    Agree on that point, which is why we saw the defensive misery that we witnessed last season. I disagree on Brent's play, he has a lot more upside than Hayden and if Dallas doesn't bring him back he will definitely be signed by someone else.

    I think a fresh start with another team would do both parties good.

    He is only 25. Maybe this will be the life changing event that knocks some reality into his head.

    They're plenty of Dlineman in this draft we should focus on. Brent needs to get his life on track and we need to move on from that situation.

    I agree with your sentiment. But, if he were to be brought back, I would not be outraged by it given the situation.

    I find it very hard to believe that our players care more about winning than the players on the Tennessee Titans or Washington Redskins. I have seen no tangible proof that our players that are so called "RKG" care more about winning and care more about the game than the vast majority of the players in the NFL.

    Now if you have some tangible evidence or some stats to back up this claim, I would very much like to see it. But to say our players are so much more special and care so much more about the game than the vast majority of the players in the NFL is just making stuff up when it boils down to it.

    RKG is just a platitude to sound good, but doesn't really mean jack when you analyze it............if I am wrong, show me something tangible that proves our players work so much harder and care so much more than the other players in the NFL.
