    Yeah, the problem is some will just parrot it without knowing if it's true or not.

    Let me give you my rational about this.

    The Cowboys needed a corner in a bad way in order to help the pass rush get to the QB. That does help in numerous ways.

    The oline is getting addressed because the Cowboys now have some vets along with some second year (maybe third) year young players that maybe will start if they can beat out the vets in training camp. And, if the young guys cannot beat out the vets, at least the Cowboys do have some insurance on the oline.

    It's all about competition for the vets/and learning for the young guys that the Cowboy already have.

    It's a win, win situation because you have got to have good backups.

    It may not mean that the vets will start, but it does give incentive for the young guys to step it up.

    Before last year, after we got Tyron, how long had it been since the FO really addressed as many players on the oline as they did last year and are continuing the same this year?

    ;)

    Now, if the Cowboys had not done a damn thing about the oline, then I would worry like you...but they have, so I guess we just have to see what Garrett has planned.

    In order for me to trust talent evaluators, I need to see previous results from their talent evaluations.

    There isn't a person in our front office who has earned any trust.

    Just because you're ignorant to everything that takes place outside of the Cowboys organization doesn't mean everyone else is. The dude was a highly touted 1st round pick that turned into a major bust for the Rams, some of us actually follow the draft. You should try it sometime, that way you won't hear about every NFL player for the first time when they are signed by the Cowboys.

    Do you have any response to the argument that three step drops was a big issue for us defensively? Even a jailbreak requires time to get to the QB. thats just the extreme of how the two are related.

    And dear lord why are you guys bringing up Barron as if its relevant.

    That is just the case of lets find the most recent example of a vet OL coming in and failing.

    Its been going on all day. Count just TRYING to be relevant. The back and forth has been entertaining to say the least.

    Yes, I've responded to that numerous times over the years. Always with the correct answer.

    File it away - No offense can operate effectively out of three step drops for very long. This does not negate the pass rush. It throws up a white flag to it and basically assumes immediate pressure on every snap. All you accomplish is shortening the field and the time and ground to cover. It's a win for any defensive coordinator worth his own salt. You've put your cover guys in the best possible position for success.

    If you told me the Cowboys were gonna face a ton of three step drops this year I'd have even less regard for the quality of our cornerbacks than I do now.
