    If anyone would have told me that the goal of JJ, Red,the rest of our scouting department, and front office was to have: 9 Defensive Backs, 2 Tight Ends, 3 WR's, 5 LB's, 4 RB's, and that we would have got more new Quarterbacks and Kickers than we did Offensive and Defensive linemen at the end of this years draft and 1st day of UDFA, I would have told you that you should check yourself into a mental hospital....In fact, I believe you would have been laughed off of this board for uttering such nonsense..We must have the best and be the deepest group of OL and DL in the NFL that we do not need to draft or sign anymore than one guy that plays in the trenches. I guess we should feel confident that our staff thinks we need more guys to back up Jason Witten and Miles Austin than we do to protect Tony Romo. Our new DC must have convinced JJ and Red that we needed to push Carr and MO, with 8 new faces at CB. He also is fine with where we are at our strongest position on the team by bringing in a small school guy who did a magic trick and started playing safety last year. Oh wait, I forgot about perennial pro-bowler Will Allen who's still looking for all that potential somewhere in him...

    Look guys, I knew we didn't have any money going into the off season. I'll blame that on the commish for that five million dollar fine (choke), and give the GM a pass on his great understanding of how the cap actually works..BUTTTTT, can any of you honestly say that you expected this draft and off season to go down like this??? Even if you are one of the guys who are being positive about the draft, can you really be happy and satisfied with what we have done to try to improve the weakest links of our team?
    We had to at least try to fix the OL and S spots. And, we needed to add to our old and deteriorating DL. This has been a very disappointing week and continuation of our off season for sure...Look up at the teams we are chasing in the NFC alone, have we done anything to get closer to them? Some of them have got even better during the past three months than they were last year...While we have, wellllllllllllllll... I don't know!!!!!

    Well clearly you haven't been watching the Cowboys very long. Jerry's cornerback fetish dates back more than a decade.

    I have no problem with the players themselves that were drafted. I like most of the picks.

    I just can't believe we didn't use more resources fixing the offensive and defensive line.


    This was the best draft to do that and we just went in the opposite direction and made moves that gave us insurance down the road for salary cap reasons it seems like.


    The quick fix for this team was coming away with more lineman and instead of that we did the same ole same ole.

    Hilarious how fans would rather draft scrub linemen in later rounds rather than go BPA and grab guys who will actually contribute.

    We could have had a strategy to come away with more quality linemen.


    If we were willing to take Frederick we could've traded down and figured out a way to get 3 2nd's and come away with Frederick, Winters, and Logan, and probably still got Randle.


    We're never going to be able to impose our will on teams through the air.

    I was unaware the deadline for acquiring players for the upcoming season had passed.

    Complete and unfounded speculation. I also don't like what you've proposed anyway.

    Mark my words.. In 2-3 years, 4 of these guys we drafted won't even be on the team...

    Oh, I'm pretty sure it has passed for Jerrah. Tell me what money he has left to do anything? He will likely rework Free's contract and have himself a big ole press conference and congratulate himself on making the OL a strength this off-season.

    That's easy to say while knowing where every player went. They already stated they were unwilling to go down any further and risk losing the last OL they thought could help right away. It's easy to come up with trade scenarios after the fact. It's another thing to have to make decisions while you are on the clock and trying to ensure you execute your strategy and actually having to deal with the 31 other teams who don't very much want to help you in any way.

    It's all a guess. Whats not a guess is that Dallas will not have success until they get better line play.

    We're not taking this offensive line on the road in the playoffs and protecting Tony Romo.

    They have $4-5million in cap space now and several ways to create more. They will add another player or two to shore up a few spots that didn't work out in the draft.

    It cracks me up people are complaining about us not drafting any DL's when Jerry came out and said we were already good there.

    The fact that he thinks we're good there is part of the problem.


    Jerrah "thinking" is the problem in general.
