    With this plan, we better hope we have the ball last in every game though cause the D will stink again.

    It's all fun. But it's all very predictable as well. Information and misinformation alike is flowing strong down the home stretch just like previous years.

    No one knows for sure because no one knows for sure what will happen at picks 3, 4, 5 etc. So much of what Dallas will do is influenced by what other teams do in front of them and what teams behind them want to do as a result.

    It's kind of funny that of late DeCastro has emerged as the consolation prize.

    It's a fun time of year. :)

    What plan? I just said I'd like to see upgrades on the OL and that there are holes at WR.

    This team has a lot of holes. Any of these positions could be drafted: S, CB, OLB, DE, NT, TE, WR, OG or OC. Even RB or ILB could use depth.

    Personally, I don't know that you can make enough moves to fill all the holes in one draft. So take the best player available and do it again next year (in the draft and FA)

    If there was any more smoke going up from around the league, Smokey the Bear would file a restraining order against the NFL Draft.

    At this point, I believe absolutely NOTHING that comes out of anyone's mouth that is coming from "rumors", "grumblings", or "whispers".

    If Sdogo or Hos hear something from inside the Ranch, it's one thing. These guys that have national exposure are being played like a Stradivarius by front offices all over the league.

    OK, from your other post you seemed to just list offensive needs.

    Yes there are alot of needs, most of which are on defense.

    There is too much parity in the NFL for me to think we are 2 years away, with a good draft, we could be real competitive this year.

    Notice Bunting didn't suggest that he actually would be the pick. He took him at #14 for Dallas in his mock, but his reasoning was that the idea sounds intriguing. Well he's right, it does. But so does a long weekend in Monte Carlo with a super model and an expense account. Doesn't mean it's going to happen.

    We could use a consolation prize like that every year. :)

    Great stuff!

    I love it when you get to check back and see what someone said in the past.

    Not even referring to Mosley really, but some get really adament about certain players as if they know with certainty the future. You know the ones, that diss others that don't agree when all they have to do is sometimes say "In my opinion" to lighten it up.

    Then when things don't happen, you never hear a peep.

    This news from him may be the "kiss of death"!

    It is almost comical that Mosely was used last year at this time to blow smoke.
    On the other hand, I wonder how many times Jerry and Co can use Mosely for this purpose before he loses any cred he may have. This forum excluded ofcourse:laugh2:

    Man I hope Mosley is right. I think DeCastro has a better chance of stepping in day one and dominating than just about anybody. Maybe at center too.

    While Mosley deserves some flak for being wayyy off last year, isn't this the same guy that got our 1st round picks right for like 4 straight years? Or something like that?

    This is still something substantial IMO.


    And LMAO at the guy who insinuated that Hostile or Sdogo might be a more reliable source than Mosley. And I say this in no way meant to be inciting towards those esteemed posters.

    That would be me, and I'll take guys I trust whose names aren't that well known over a well-known guy has been BADLY wrong in front of everyone.

    I think Mosley is as reliable this time of year as every other national media source...and that's not at all.

    Talk about having egg on your face.:laugh2:


    Did Mosley even explain why he was so wrong on his prediction? Kinda hard to have any cred left you you whiff this bad on your prediction. "I said they arent, more than a hunch"...........what a freaking moron.

    I would be embarrassed to write another column after looking like such a fool.

    Yeah, I think you and I are on pretty good streaks on 1st round here. I go back to 2005 as of right now. Same with Norm Hitzges, he has has been the same page as us.

    But the guy who has reason to crow is Nick Eatman. Last year he got 1st, 2nd and 3rd dead right. That impressed me.

    Yea, I am pretty sure that Garrett is not telling him jack about our board.

    He had a tweet after the fact about how he "thought" the team wanted to trade out or something.

    Basically he was told something wrong. They know he's gonna put info out there so why would they tell him anything?

    I'm skeptical of why anyone would ever pay attention to what anybody says regarding any player.

    Smokescreens seem so pointless to me.

    If everyday Joe Fanatic can call it when he sees it, any chance that people in the league believe a drop of it?

    I think any more teams use "smokescreens" as a matter of continuing something old for the sake of doing so. I doubt any team actually thinks about the effects and they probably just do it out of habit.
