This was a hot topic in the offseason. I think many of us were resistant to the winds of change. We love the integrity and heart of players like these and didn't want to see them traded even though the writing was on the wall. Ellis's playing time has been greatly reduced. Dat's body can't hold on any longer. And Glover is rumored to be a salary cap casualty next year. I know all of these fellas have contributed this year, but if the Cowboys are looking like they won't make the Playoffs, wouldn't it have made more sense to just cut our losses immediately and picked up some more depth at weak positions like linebacker and the offensive line? You can say Parcells needed those guys for depth and because of untrusted young players, and it's true with guys like Canty and Spears, but there isn't exactly anyone behind Ellis, Glover and Dat on the depth charts next year. They will be replaced by no name scrubs. It's moves like this that baffle me. We could have possibly gotten 2nd round draft picks for these guys, or at least some solid starters, and instead we're going to end up with nothing. This team doesn't have enough depth to lose guys like this for zilch. :bang2: I guess I like Parcells draft day decision, but it really bugs me how he loses so many players for nothing at all in return. I know it's not as easy as it looks to the layman, but how can the Eagles get a 2nd rounder for A.J. Feeley, yet we can't even get a six pack of beer for our guys?
