    Yes! It appears Jerry is FINALLY listening and being less emotional. Cut Ware, didn't give Hatcher a contract, let them draft BPA. I like the direction Dallas is headed. FINALLY!

    Like the pick. Still wouldn't mind taking a chance if Brandon Thomas is there in the 5th. He wouldn't even have to play this year. Now we just better fix that D-line. It's horrible.

    You don't draft need only.

    I wanted Donald, but you cannot go wrong building your O-Line to better run the ball and protect your QB...

    I don't think he had a choice. JJ looked pissed and Junior did too. I don't think Martin was their plan at all. I think the plan was a trade-back , but they had no takers.

    With what was on the Draft Board Martin absolutely trumped them all. Excellent decision for the Best player Available as a Fan it's hard to ask for much more.

    Let me be one of the first to say nice job, Jason Garrett, Red J is baaaaaack!

    The Ticket said that someone in the Pittsburgh front office claimed the Cowboys wanted Shazier and actually called his agent to let him know they were taking and the agent told them the Steelers had just picked him. I'm wondering if that was the call that had Stephen slam the phone down.

    I tried my best to play back what he said when he slammed the phone and lipread. Then I remembered I can't lipread. I'd love to know what he said. He was PO'd.

    I agree 100 %. I just look at a monster in the run game in Frederick. Now you put a guy who seems to be designed just for our zone scheme right next to him. Not to mention one of the best in the game in Tyron Smith. A bad defense, a QB coming off back surgery, and a RB who averaged over 5 YPC a year ago. I know we have extreme pass happy play callers, but they have to find a way feed these RBs a little bit. Often when things make too much sense it never happens, however.

    You guys know that now that we've made this pick, Romo is going to go down for the season in game 3. That's the sort of thing that happens to the Cowboys.

    Garrett has paid lip service to running the ball before but he brought it up a lot during the press conference.

    Hell of a pick, you'll never hear me complain about OL/DL.

    Another thing to consider. Brian Waters is more than welcome to come to camp and try to earn a spot on the team..........or not!!!!!!! No more ransom demands from him!,

    Potentially the best OL in football. Nice pick. Now for a DT in the 2nd.

    I would have been fine with him too but knew the Cowboys weren't going QB so I gave up on him.

    My favorite Dallas Drive of all time was the second Superbowl against the Bills when Dallas came out after halftime and bludgeoned the Bills with run after run to flat out demoralize Buffalo. Martin and Frederick should be able to push the inside pocket consistently and that will pay huge dividends in keeping drives alive next season. Forget Romo, DeMarco Murray was probably the happiest Cowboy last night!

    Yes, but keep in mind we had a good oline last year too and we did not un the ball near enough. The oline is going to get better with Martin in there but the OC has to start trusting the run... Unlike last year.

    I think it was the smartest pick Jerry made in years in the first. (Aside from Dez) Didn't get cute. Didn't try for a homerun. Picked a great versatile player, I'm legit happy so far. Hopefully that doesn't change over the next couple of nights. Here's to hoping we aren't planning on wasting any picks on a Matt Johnson, AOA type guy unless it's in the 7th.

    I'm really happy with this pick. This really pleases me. I definately will not complain about helping out our O-Line. Now they can focus on the D.
