    Priscilla is dead wrong here, but stubborn people refusing to admit they are wrong far predate participation trophies.

    My bad, I guess remember it that way cause we at the zone collectively passed on him well ahead of draft night.

    Lol, if I ever need attention Its good to know all I have to do is say something factually incorrect at the zone.

    Our secondary was average for the most part, with Ramsey our secondary still would have been average...You can have Ed Reed, Ronnie Lott, Deion Sanders and Champ Bailey in your secondary and if you give the QB 5 seconds to throw it won't matter...If Bosa would have been there, we probably would have taken him, but since he wasn't we took the guy who would take pressure off of our defense...in my opinion...

    They do feel the impact of it. Every time they hand the ball of to Elliott.

    Ok and Jaylan Ramsey has contributed to how many wins or playoff berths for the Jags? Because Zeke has contributed 13 and a playoff berth.

    Although I agreed with him when the Boys took Zeke, I don't see any RB who would be available at #28 even close to Zeke, but there are several DBs who will still be there who are comparable to Ramsay. Melifonwu is one of them. He's a LOT bigger, jumped higher & farther, & is just as fast. Can you imagine Obi & Byron roaming the Boys center field? We could trade down to 33, get #108, & still probably grab him. We're going to have to trade down sooner than later if we hope to load up on corners & rush men. Most starters don't come after #210, which is where almost half of our picks lie right now.

    Prisco and his pathetic agenda. Pete, you were wrong, let it go. Passing on Ramsey was the right choice, because Cowboys would not have had the same success without Zeke Elliott. Ramsey's impact would have been marginal, at best. And Marinelli has shown that he doesn't need stars (or even high draft choices) to field a playoff defense.

    Top 5 corner is still dream casting for Ramsey right now. While Zeke is the BEST running back in the entire league as of last season. One is proven the other is potential. Give me proven all day and twice on Sunday.

    Yeah, not taken Ramsey will affect the secondary. Of course, not taking Zeke would affect the entire philosophy of the tram going forward. This kind of article doesn't really illuminate much.

    The opposing teams get to feel the impact of the Cowboys NOT passing on Zeke.

    So if this was Barry Sanders or Emmitt Smith the Cowboys drafted, would this idiot keep saying we should have taken Ramsey? lol. Didn't know Ramsey was Deion Sanders.

    Ramsey was great, but I feel better about Elliot's ability to impact a game.

    Put Elliot in this offense, and it's elite. Use this to win games.

    Put Ramsey in this defense, and it still has flat tires.

    This just in, if none of those guys left, and Ramsey had been the pick, he would have been the best DB on the team....conversely, since they didn't take him, he won't be the best DB on the team, even if they had taken him

    non-story

    now, I have said this, I wanted Ramsey but am thrilled with zeke...Zeke takes pressure off of the defense by extending drives (with the intense help from the big boys upfront, of course)...zeke takes pressure off of the defense by helping the offense to score more, Zeke helps to control the clock so the defense isn't on the field as much....now, if zeke Wasn't there in favor of ramsey? then ramsey would have had A LOT more playing time that all of the guys that just signed elsewhere...and, last time I checked, he can really only cover one spot at a time

    move along, move along (say this in storm trooper voice from Star Wars, episode 4, where obi wan plants that thought in their dopey minds)
