    Was the last time we took an offensive player in the first round. And that was David LaFluer.

    Man, I didn't realize it has been 8 years since we got a first round offensive player.

    Maybe this shou8ld be the year???

    Unless Dallas has a total break down this year I doubt we will get a chance at Quinn.

    We would have to have someone that a team would be willing to lost that much to get- outside of Roy, who would that be?

    Remember we lost 2 Firsts to get Galloway. There have not been that many really top offensive Skill players that were around for us to get- and we usually had a much better D player there to take (Roy, Newman for 2). We passed on Moss for obvious reasons; after that- jsut who could we have taken? Now of course we took losers like Carver but still- jsut who was right there that has turned out great as a QB, RB, WR, TE?

    Drew Brees... yeah he was taken in the 2nd round, but near the beginning of that round. Or Tom Brady ;) . We would have been the laughing stock of the league had we taken him in the 1st round, but now we would be geniuses.

    Hmmm, maybe that's why we haven't had a potent offense in a long time.

    It doesn't have much to do with us not taking a offensive player in the first round. Our offense has not been potent since our pro bowl players left without getting replaced. Those players can be drafted in any round.

    I agree.
    Its pathetic.
    We're way overdue.

    And we wonder why we live and die by field goal kickers. :mad:

    We havent taken an O-Lineman in the first in 25 years.

    I hope not, that'd mean we were one of the bottom 5 teams for the season, unless he pulls an Eli and demands to be traded to us, I could handle that! lol

    Don't worry. It was a bit tongue in cheek. I'd love to see us get him but you're right, it won't happen without a ridiculous trade.

    Man, I hated LaFluer more than any other Cowboy I can think of. I remember that year it took forever for Emmitt to get his first td, and then when it looked like he finally got it LaFluer was called for holding. I know it's harsh, but I was young then and Emmitt was my hero, so I just never forgave him for that.
