    I would say that 2 of the 3 starters on offense are playing better than most rookies. You put them along with Smith, Witten, Romo, Dez, Austin, Waters and Free, I would say we have more talent than most teams. Poor play calling, execution and coaching is what is lacking.

    Actually, we might be saying the same thing lol I'd say our talent is somewhere around 10-12

    We just have a different definition of "not that talented"

    Yes, however we have few different makers. Guys like Claiborne and Smith who were picked in the top ten of their respective draft should be impact players. Smith is not a total waste, however he's not somebody like say JJ Watt who can take over a game and dominate. Actually the opposite happened yesterday as his blunder costs us the game.

    What? What is a LT, or any OLineman, supposed to do to dominate a game? Are you saying that no OL should ever be drafted in the top 10? Its not like he went #1 overall.

    Our talent is overrated but the talent we DO have is better than .500. Our coaching flat out sucks - all of it except RM.

    Sure we do, how many teams out there have more talent than us?

    It has always been about coaching and leadership

    My point is that we don't have impact players and when we had the chance to pick one we whiffed. Our impact player on defense is Ware and he's ageing fast. On offense our impact player is Bryant. The point of the thread was how much talent we have and I say no to that. We're a mediocre team with a mediocre less than average talent base. Claiborne was supposed to be an impact player and he's hardly a player at this point. Smith is a nice offensive lineman but so was Flozzel Adams. And impact offensive lineman would be somebody like Larry Allen. Somebody you can build your team around. Smith is not a total waste, he might eventually become all pro. Yesterday he cost us the game.

    I too am surprised at how competitive we are given all the injuries we have had. Especially on the D side.
