    I got the distinct feeling it was between Colledge and Fasano (I think they insinutaed that), but we were going TE regardless between the OL player and Fasano.

    Or I dreamed all this . . . . it was like 2 a.m. my time! :D

    They're not mutually exclusive.

    This is exactly the reason why we haven't won a playoff game in 9 years. The meddlesome owner setting up gameplans and offensive/defensive philosophies.

    Maybe he should leave that up to his coaches. Why must JJ INSIST we stay with the 3-4 after BP leaves??? What if the new coach doesn't like it??? Maybe he should let the new coach run it his way.

    JJ hasn't won squat without Jimmy's players. It's this type of nonsense which will send this franchise to the grave.

    I can tell you why we shouldn't change back and forth (it's obvious), but can you tell me why we can't just hire a 3-4 coach if we need one?

    Since Bill has been here he has always used the 2 TE in set and he has always said he prefers that as the base that is why we have drafted a TE every year that is why Cambell was signed

    Why is anyone suprised

    Bill has always liked 2 TE sets, but it was far from our "core philosophy".

    yea he drafted two in 1 year Witten and Ryan and how many have we signed and released want to go for 3.

    Anyone acting like the 2 TE set is a new offense for this team since Bill has been here or suprised that he wanted another TE makes no sense. This team has used the 2 TE set since Big Bill has arrived including last year. Look for it to be used in a larger% now.

    You hate the pick great; but it was not a reach pick.He was drafted about where he was rated in the 2nd round. So you wanted some olinemen or a knucklehead Safety that slid and slid yeay you. That does not make the pick a bad pick. A bad pick is when you darft a guy ranked 88 with the 54 and things like that. So what ever Ice you are just on a vent rampage so have at it.

    Now if we where reaching for guys like Dixon (a 6th round talent in the 2nd) or QC a late 3rd-4th round talent in the 2nd I can see all the hate but that has not been the case. We have drafted guys in there respective area of rating and not reaching which tends to leave you with a solid draft vs having guys like Rogers trying to fill a need.

    But he always said he prefered it; we just did not have the right players in place to implemented it as often. I just see a bigger% of plays called from that set than years past. We have used it alot in the Red zone area over the years and mixed it quite often in the normal set.

    So Big Bill and Jerry didn't find it a need to inform the fans of what they intend to do.

    I let it ride coming here yesterday, but I've got to say, this is some of the funniest **** I've read in years! :laugh2:

    If it was leaked out, then that could have tipped our hand of what direction we may go in the draft and even Free agency. Good job by Valley Ranch on this one. I think there may be a few more surprises down the road, maybe not until camp, but somewhere.
