    you wont know, what if you covered some needs and an injury strikes? You can draft all the positions, what if a player doesnt work out? Whos made of glass? Who did you pass on? Its not up there, but how close are we to Orton playing out the season?

    I voted DE because I think it is much easier to find guys on the interior DL off the street.. If you have the body type and you play hard you can be somewhat effective in a 4-3 but the ends have to be special players and get pressure and stop the run.. I think as you have seen guys like Hayden, Nevis, and Cohen have come in here and done a fair job.. Even Pendleton wasn't so bad in my opinion.. But other than Selvie I don't think any of the DE's we have brought in have really made a difference.

    Second would still be DT.. I think that the other defensive positions listed would look a heck of a lot better if the D-Line got a good amount of pressure as for RB let's see if Randle and Tanner can't get the job done before we call it a need..

    I don't see people hollering OL so evidently the Cowboys did something right. Hate to tell you guys but every team will have areas of need Dallas is no different.

    Pass rusher. DT's are normally rush stuffers with the occasional Sapp type DT mixed in. We need to pressure the QB in the NFL today. So DE.

    At this very moment the biggest hole we need to fill is along the D line.

    Right now our biggest need is 7 more wins this regular season.

    DL, or Safety who can cover, or LB who can cover RBs and TEs. I'll take any of those. Although, I can easily be persuaded to say OL after seeing the good results when Romo has time.

    I wanted to go with DT and DE because they're both needed and after this year will be sorely needed.

    You can pretty much be assured that Spencer and Hatcher will be gone this offseason joining Rat on being gone from the depth of this D-L.

    So, yeah, D-L will be their biggest and most needed area of concern.

    HB is a distant, distant, distant second to D-L.

    Heck I'd be tempted to say it's third behind D-L and some more O-L.

    Close call between DT and DE. I'd say we are stronger at DT starters, but desperately need depth. Ware has health issues and Selvie would be better as a backup. Starting Wilbur and Selvie at DE this Sunday gives us one of the weakest starting pair of DE's in the NFL.

    Losing Spencer, Ratliff, Crawford and Bass this season is hard to overcome.

    Um, you left out QB
    Here is why we need a new QB.

    1. The QB is the team leader.
    2. Tona is getting old and cant win the big games (His personal stats will get him into the HOF but not the Super Bowl the way he wilts.
    3. A QB understudy will need 2 years to learn from the bench
    4. We need to address the future.

    Our biggest need is a franchise 3-tech. I'm not sure any other need even comes close.

    I say DE. The bust rate at 4-3 DT is really high, and a core of Hatcher, Haden, Nevis, Crawford could be really good. Add a 2nd or 3rd round pick in there and the unit could be really good. But at DE, we're looking at Ware, Selvie, Wilbur and ...........Just draft a DE.
