    Whatever the impetus, what's happening now definitely isn't what one might normally expect from your typical preseason Cowboys' dealmaking ventures that this team might routinely make. They're loading up for a run at something special. Just how special clearly remains to be seen but it should be intriguing to follow the show.

    Agreed.

    Going "all in" is a goofy move like trading for Roy Williams or Joey Galloway.

    I agree with the folkz that said Jerry has been going all in the last few years. I think morons that listen to ESPN tirelessly think that Jerry isn't a good GM

    He's either calling bluff or his pot is really low

    Maybe not all in but you don't make the Waters signing if you don't plan to contend this year.

    While signing Waters is a sign that we are trying to win this year, that should be the case for every team, every year. But still Jerry is not going all in. There was no ridiculous big FA signing, no over paid contracts to big name players, heck our first round draft choice was a Center. this is a move that gives us a chance to win now without giving up anything in our future. What I see is a team making moves that is balancing between winning now, and building for the future. Exactly what quality teams do.

    He's going all in the right way. He's not trading high picks for expensive WRs or signing vets to ridiculous contracts. Instead, he's trading non-contributors for picks, using low round picks to replace the non-contributors with contributors, extending team leaders to reasonable contracts, and signing vets in need positions to reasonable contracts. That's how it's done.

    yeah the Galloway trade was a true all in move.

    As in close your eyes and jump down a hole you have no idea how deep

    That is how it's done.

    No ridiculous reaches in the draft either.

    i agree. all in would be trading future draft picks for guys to play now. this is more of a improve where you can type deal to me. but i think they have made some nice moves this year so far. none of them mortgage the futre but they help the st's, help the oline, and add another player with some pass rush skills.

    I agree. Both of Garrett's 8-8 seasons had potential to be much more, if not for Garrett.

    "...it seems to me that he is doing everything in his power to make this team championship ready."

    :p:confused::mad:...Wasted away again in homerville...lol! The Dallas Cowboys don't even have an NFL caliber offensive line, let alone a championship one. Jerry's going after retired OGs for God's sake! He has no RT or anyone to backup Tyron Smith, but he drafted Zero offensive tackles. He brought in career backup OGs in Livings & Bernadeau, & they've played like it. He did NOTHING to correct that in the draft. No DLs drafted either. Except for the trenches, (you know, the place where games are won & lost), the team looks real good. (Oh, except for the much heralded CB they gave up their first two picks in the 2012 draft, who was mediocre his first season, & has been hurt the entire off-season). I guarantee, this team will fall short of the playoffs once again, because it's leaders have NO concept of player acquisition. GUARANTEED!!

    Jerra always goes all out. That is a given. Getting him to make the right choices (with the backing of scouts and real "football guys" is another thing.

    If he does not get the job done this year, it will be the same old, same old "we'll do better next year." the only diff is that Callahan will be his next man crush. Nothing new about that. If you are thinking Jerra will relinquish control to little Stevie, forgit it. Jerra will be deciding the draft from the nursing home.
