    Who? :D

    Parcells doesn't want to take Copper off the roster because of what he brings to the ST game.

    My guess is that if JJ can't go, there won't be a huge drop off in production with Thompson/Thomas/Barber.

    Ivolved in what? OUr recievers are doing quite well. Why mess up that chemistry? All we can hope for is another outstanding performance from out O-Line, and we should be okay at RB, regardless if JJ is in or not.

    When in the past have the Cowboys had enough WR talent to keep a guy like Peerless Price on the bench?

    How does JJ's injury help get a receiver on the field. You really should replace a back with a back. I think Jones and Parcells are fine in keeping the wraps on Price till hes needed.

    When things are going good, why would you want to break up the receiver set we have and get Price on the field.

    I doubt we run any 4 receiver sets often. Suiting Price up for 1-2 plays a game makes little sense. If Crayton fumbles, look for Price. Thats what you use an insurance policy for. You dont take a good piece off the field just cause you have something of relatively equal value. The old adage, 'if it aint broken, dont fix it' would apply here.

    No.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Price is insurance, and not needed at this point.

    If the 'O' line is blocking well, look for Price to make an appearance in a 4 WR set. 'A' train will be in to block to help pass protect for Bledsoe. We tried it once this year and went away from it because the 'O' line was still a little shaky at the time.

    If what we saw in the Philly game is for real, we can look to seeing PP in some games coming up. Besides it is one of the only looks that we really haven't shown a lot of this year. This game could be the game to do it.

    Again, who do you replace?

    If you go four wide, you take away witten

    if you go 3 wide you take away Crayton.

    Price, did not come here to play in every game, he came her if Glenn gets hurt, if Crayton gets hurt, if Key gets hurt. He didnt come to start, dont look at the money, they had to find some way of getting him here, i seriously doubted he was going to take 500,000 dollars to sit on the bench when just last year he was a number 1 WR. (didn't play like one....regradlesss of what you think about Vick). Price is an insurance policy, thats it, please get over him, he is not great, he is not good, he isnt better than anything we are putting out there.

    Are you sure, because that would mean, putting a rookie in Pettit, up against strahan, are we that sure he's good. Let's not forget, he wasnt alone against kearse, did a good job, but this isnt kearse, and dont forget, going 4 WR, means takeing away one of the best TE in the game in Witten, is Price really worth that price(pun intended:D )

    How often are you going to keep asking about Price? New Price thread every 4 days? Just gets annoying when you guys start threads about the same thing(s).

    Taking away Witten for a play or two during the game won't hurt us at all. It would give us a different look to the opposing defense. The LB or Safety that would normally be assigned to Witten now has PP to deal with. Most of the times we win that match up. I am not in favor of replacing any of our starters permanently for PP. However, I do believe the more looks we can give a defense without hurting our production, the better.

    So your saying, price can get open on a S or a LB, better than Witten, a premier TE? Witten has opened things for Glenn, and Crayton, what will price do? He doesnt have better hands, he doesnt run better routes, okay so he's a little faster, but i think with Glenn and Crayton, you really dont need to worry about that. I'm still not understand the taking away of players who can contribute more (IE ratilff sacking Mcnabb last week), jsut for a few plays. He aint worth it. INsurance policy. Only.

    Never said that PP was the better player. However PP does have speed that Witten doesn't have. Now suppose our 'O' line is playing well. We went 4 WR and we put PP price in. The threat of PP going deep (and he does) will not just make the running lanes open up but would just be a look that will allow us to do some things that we haven't shown yet. Crayton and Witten seem to patrol the same areas on the field, along with KJ. We only have one deep threat and that is TG. I'm sure that we could squeeze PP in for one of the possession receivers that we have on the field for a play or two.

    In addition, replacing Witten is not something that we haven't done before. Campbell has replaced Witten on numerous occasions. I believe in the more looks you can give a defense or D. Coordinators that study us, the harder it is to shut us down.

    I'd turn him loose on about 5 plays. I'd have 5 Set plays for him - even if he is used as a deep threat decoy. I say this b/c if Tyson Thompson and A- Train split the load - the Jints will cheat up on the LOS. You can run TT out of a 4 WR set b/c of his speed - plus Price is no slouch -not by a longshot. Yes, he's had trouble getting into the squad but that doesn't mean he's a stiff. IMO, he's the most talented WR on the roster ...he's just caught up in a glut , and he can't play ST.

    And this needed to be a new thread?

    How about putting it in the other Price thread started 4 hours before yours?

    Hell it's not like it is anything new, too bad he's insurance and the way things are going, we should all hope he stays just that.;)

    I agree totally. Drew already said that he was a player. To suggest that he is not a good receiver is silly and the only reason that I can see him not being in the game is that he doesn't practice well. If that is the case, then it's obvious why we haven't used PP in games. I doubt that he is under performing so why not use him a few plays a game?

    I think as the season rolls on we will see him on a few plays especially when we play divisional rivals the second time.

    You can bet the farm on that.
