    As long as the building process is through the draft. The Cowboys need to continue with the youth rebuilding. FA has been a failure in terms of production and cost.

    The team needs to continue to get younger and more aggressive. Old guys get hurt and stay hurt longer...

    Early rounds = Offensive Line
    Later = Defensive Line and Safety

    I think your right , hatcher may be able to play DE

    So maybe :

    Ware - rat - Melton - Hatcher

    Albright -spears - lissemore - Crawford backing up

    Melton has to be the target. Besides the talent, Jerry seems to love his UT players and he's even from the metroplex.

    Now who's playing the Booger McFarland role? I'd think we'd need a 1-technique unless Brent miraculously comes back.

    Ratliff will probably stay now . Guys on radio saying he would finally flourish in 4-3

    Are you sure he didn't say we were actually tryuing to get Sapp to come back and play? I mean if we went for a 73 year old DC, you never know.

    Sapp WAS one of the best athletes I've ever seen. Remember he use to do those skill competitions and would win them all the time? For a guy built like a loaf of bread he could move like a WR.

    I doubt the Bears let Melton get away.

    Why would we switch to 4-3 then look for a guy like this. A move like this last year would have made much more sense and probably saved Ryan his job

    Jerry is still having nightmares of Melton forcing Romo to throw the pick six to Briggs under the Monday night lights.

    Melton will be a Cowboy.

    Melton was a big softie at UT. Granted that was a long time ago but I worry about that guy after getting paid.

    He wanted cornerbacks and then made them not play man. I'm one of those guys who wanted Ryan gone

    So, the Cowboys are looking for a Warren Sapp type of DL. And so are/have been the other 31 NFL teams ever since Sapp entered the league. :)

    Just look for good, talented players. Talent eats scheme for breakfast.

    Scheme towards your talent rather than acquire certain types of players who seem to fit a scheme.

    Old guys on roster...if not a superstar they should be gone.

    Offense - Livings 30, Cook 29, Free 29, Witten 30**, Romo 32

    Defense - Spears 29, Ratliff 31, Hatcher 30, Ware 30**, and Sensabaugh 29

    ** I would exempt Witten and Ware who have been good consistent performers.

    What dont you guys get about the team being financially strapped. They wont be going after one of these top FA DTs. They have to release Free, most likely Ratliff, restructure Romo and Carr to even get enough money to operate under the cap.
