    Do you guys realize that this guy does not have the tools...nor will he EVER be used to justify his draft position. We could have had a OL or a WR for years to come....instead we get a TE that is to slow to ever really justify his draft position or to soft to ever be a dominate blocker. Was puzzled with this pick (especially with Witten on the roster) and will ALWAYS disagree with this position. He is not a difference maker. Teams don't gameplan for him.

    meh, I don't know.

    I like Fasano--he's tough and will catch the ball

    He's making alot of stupid rookie mistakes though--it's probably averaged out to two a game

    tell me what numbers a TE drafted in the 2nd round needs to post to justify his draft position? Keep in mind that Witten was drafted in the 3rd

    we should have re-drafted Garo Yepremian and I will never back down from that position. We didn't know about Romo at the time obviously, and Yepremian could have stepped in immediately and been a star for us at QB

    It isn't as finite as numbers. That's the fnatasy football explanation for everything.

    No doubt Fasano was a serious reach as well as an eyebrow raiser when we had Witten and Hannam etc...

    BUT

    I think he's a player.

    agreed...but a 2nd round pick TE should be a difference maker

    This reminds me of another one of those "voodoo" plays. Fasano has the ball in the open flat with no one in front of him and he mysteriously loses his balance, stumbles over his feet, and falls down out of bounds. It didn't have much of an effect, because Romo put us in a position to win, but still, it needed to be mentioned.

    Not sure after 8 games you can say he is a bust. I think he made some nice plays today, and in past games has blocked well. Unless you watch him on each play, which most of us non coaches do not do, not sure how you can comment on him in a negative way.

    I think he can be and is doing a very good job. He's not going to have Gates or Witten like receiving numbers. That wasn't what we drafted him for. It isn't finite by numbers. This kid will pay dividends as he matures in this offense.

    The premature evaluation syndrome is rampant. It's the disposable society we live in.

    Anthony "Fall Down" Fasano and Jason "Yard Short of 1st Down" Witten did not have a very good day blocking, staying upright or staying onside.

    Fasano was drafted so high because Parcells thought he looked like Mark Bavaro.

    We will just agree to disagree, but something tells me a couple of years from now many of us will be asking "again, why exactly did we draft this guy?"

    I honestly could see the comparison as valid last week against Carolina.

    That is always possible. It's too soon to whine about where he was drafted right now. I think the kid is doing a fine job and is only going to get better. But that's because I'm not looking for numbers comparing him to our 3rd round TE.

    I think it is absolutely ridiculous. How do we know who will be a bust and who will be a great pick? I think Fasano will be alright. I think eight games is way too premature to judge some of our draft picks. Same for Bobby Carpenter. I don't want us to pull a veteran off the field and replace him with our rookie just because of his draft status. We aren't too far removed from the days of Eb Ekuban, Shante Carver, Kavika Pittman, Tony Dixon, Dwayne Goodrich, etc.

    We need to give these guys a little time. This has been said many times. I guess being rational is too much to ask.

    Greg Ellis will most likely not get a new contract. If Carpenter turns out to be a player it will be nice to see him step in and pick up where Ellis left off. Only time will tell.
