    Yes far better to be a over reactionary cynic that lack any sense of patience or understanding of context.

    Nailed it.

    And now that this thread has been bumped, OP came back in with literally the most predictable responses.

    Crapping all over the kid after the 1st preseason game and then giving him zero credit after an improved performance the following week isn't being a "realist". It's being an idiot.

    The overreaction was clearly just grasping at straws during a boring offseason. Taco's measurables from the combine are good, his 10 yard split in his 40 was pretty much elite. He won plenty of 1 on 1s in camp against people like L'ael. His college film had him read and react rather than just go all out rushing the qb. No reason at all to think he had no burst yet all the over-reactors were saying was "OMG HE IS SLOW LOOK AT HIS 40 TIME, NO BURST AT ALL."

    At least formulate a solid opinion if trying to sling mud at someone. In this social media age, wide spread ignorance does have an effect on players.

    His measurables are pretty close to Joey Bosas and if I could pick 1 player in the league right now to add to the Cowboys it would be Bosa.

    I still feel vindicated being one of the only ones who wanted to draft him last year. Feels like this entire board hated the guy. Then again, I probably knew he would be good because this board hated him.

    Couldn't have gone wrong with either Zeke or Bosa. I think that it's easy to say you'd rather have Bosa now that we are going to have to worry about Zeke every off-season.

    Not to derail the thread, but Bosa will have the longer career at a more premium position just going off the odds. I'm hoping Zeke turns out like AP and lasts a decade (he's honestly built for it, dude is thick as hell). Even with how great Zeke is, I would rather have Bosa over Taco, and one of the many first round RB's this year over Zeke.

    Edit: Silly for me to even consider since Bosa never made it to our pick and unless or FO has the greatest poker face ever, weren't considering going after him.

    we did not know much after game 1 and we still do not know much now.
    nice to see some good results, but it was against non-starters.
    for every joe bosa with those measureable, there is a ryan russell.

    let continue to hope he progresses.
    if he is a bosa, then it would be obviously huge.

    It's still a valid argument, nobody expected the Chargers to grab him where they did. Again, I don't think we could have gone wrong with either one.

    Bosa was way more polished coming out than Taco was/is. They're basically the exact opposite, Bosa might be a little too physical at the point-of-contact, and Taco isn't physical enough.

    i would like to see how taco in the upcoming games:
    1. play against some 1st teamers
    2. do outside moves instead just inside moves as he obviously cannot just survive on inside moves.

    Guess I just want players who have had great games in their life instead of guys who only started 13 games in college because they weren't good enough.

    He's going to have to do more than beat undrafted traffic cones from small colleges to earn my adoration.

    Tapper was a fourth rounder who looks far better than this first rounder.

    I hope time proves me wrong, but I've seen far too many first-round pass rush busts in Dallas.

    It isn't. But we all know exactly what it is.

    So, to your trained expert eye, Tapper has looked better than Charlton in the two preseason games?

    Absolutely the first game. Not even close.
    Last night was fine for both.

    Taco played great against their starters. Some hiccups but he looked good.

    He was all over the place in the 1st quarter. If you didn't see it, go back and watch him.

    If you thought they looked the same last night you either didn't really watch the game or you just are playing contrarian.
