Kellllllllen Moore please
The Eagles have a long-term system in place that other teams around the league trust. The Cowboys haven't developed anyone since Tony Romo, who came up under another system, and given the results with Stephen McGee, I doubt anyone has confidence in a developmental project out of Dallas.
I don't like that. So draft someone and train him then sell him?
It's not a bad strategy, it's just something Dallas isn't likely to be able to pull off.
Kirk cousins would be a good pick in the 4th
Now I know that there's no need to take you seriously, thanks...
I know that because nobody who knew anything about Kirk Cousins and Stephen McGee would ever think to compare them... they aren't even remotely similar QBs...
McGee is at his best on the move, indeed he's a little too fond of that... Cousins is a pure pocket passer whose biggest flaw is that he's TOO patient in the pocket, thus making him susceptible to sacks and injury...
McGee is a scrambler, Cousins is a surgeon (we're talking playing styles here) who sits back in the pocket and tries to pick you apart... he's like a Peyton Manning, without all the talent... LOL...
Which one of the voices in your head said that??
I never compared the players. I'm comparing the type of move it would be. The Cowboys aren't a position to be taking developmental players, unless you're okay with another losing season.
Yeah not a bad strategy at all, but as has been pointed out, we would have to develop the guy and we haven't done that lately although that doesn't mean we can't do it in the future.
Its still a good strategy to draft and develop the most important position in football at all times.
I like Cousins and I wouldn't be disappointed, but I think we are set at QB for at least the next three years while I think there are several potential contributors or even a starter at Center that we can still get in the fourth round. If we are going to get a project I would prefer to wait until the 6th or later and get Kinne or Moore.
I get that. My only trepidation is the idea of releasing a QB that turns into a HOF player. IMO it is a waste of resources and time to be coaching people simply to trade them. If you draft them in hope of one day playing them fine. But, if you draft someone with the only idea of selling them I find a deep flaw in that strategy.
I'm just an everyday guy though so what the hell do i know lol
ROTFLMAO... hoss, by the time you get to the 4th round, most of the prospects left on the board are "developmental" players... it's also kind of silly to think that mid and late round draft picks could doom you to a losing season...
Let me put it to you this way-- if Jason Garrett knows anything, it's quarterback play... remember, last year he was reported to be hot for Andy Dalton in the draft, and of course Andy had a real nice rookie season...
So if Jason thinks that Kirk Cousins has NFL ability and is worth a the 135th pick in the draft, I'm gonna trust his judgement on this one... it's not the way I would go, but I'm not so arrogant as to think my judgement is superior to Garrett's...
I'm anti-QB for this draft right now, but, that's one hell of a point lol
I like Cousins alot. I think he'll be a good starter in a few years.
and how long do you think he has left? 2 yrs?
The fact that they would of taken Wagner says it's something they would consider but I have no idea where the value matches up for them at this point.
Cousins to skins.
Just went to Washington.
Kiper blasting the pick
