I think the world of Babe Laufenberg. If not for his incredible gift of gab and presence on the radio/TV, I could see him manning the sidelines as a head coach. I could definitely see him as at least a top offensive coordinator. Brilliant man. Likewise, I have a great deal of respect for the eyes of Brian Broaddus. Former Cowboys scout with Parcells, plus the Packers and other places, he's always a good listen on the radio, and he obviously lives and breaths the scouting process. I think he wants to get back into Valley Ranch in that capactity again one day. What I don't think the world of or respect much is the current state of the Cowboys' center position. But according to Babe and Brian, I'm wrong. These dudes have me perplexed, especially since they don't even agree with each other on the answer to the center problem. Laufenberg has a very high opinion of Phil Costa. He thinks the guy is going to be a very good center for a long time if he can stay healthy. He talks about his tenacity and his development constantly. Mind you, Laughenberg was touting Romo and Austin LONG before anyone else was around here. He's done the same with other players, too, and mostly been right. So his answer is, stay with Costa because he's ready to shine. (He did look good in the Baltimore game.) Broaddus isn't in the Costa camp. Not at all, in fact. He likes Mackenzy Bernadeau as next year's starting center, and thinks he is much better suited to play center than guard. Broaddus recommends getting another guard to take his spot so he can slide over, then getting another tackle to replace Free, and voila, a much better line in place. Both have access to Valley Ranch, so which one, if either, is floating out the intentions of the organization. Lord Landry knows, there's not much cash in the kitty to throw at a center in free agency. Me? I tend to want to go get me another one in the draft, release Bernadeau, and have Costa backup at center and guard. But what do I know about pro football centering and such? I'm not Babe or Brian for sure. I'll be interested to see how this one plays out, not just on the field, but among the eggsperts and guesstimators. And with the o-line as the most pressing and public problem, this is going to play out front and CENTER. See what I did there?
