We've been in that mode for about 8 years. It's about time we really do something about it.
Easy fix is L Landry, I believe he is a FA and would work well in Tampa 2 and one would really think about a crossing route.
are these the same experts who have built this wonderful Oline??
He will be 30 next season.
And as for athletic ability, this isn't the CB position where those measurables mean alot more and can decide his worth. Those instincts and physciality that you bring up are main components of a safety, along with his athletic ability.
I don't care if he can jump over a car if he doesn't want to tackle aggressively or lead this D.
is he starting for them??
ill be sure to keep an eye out for them coming up.
So he's awesome and our 'experts' let him go?
Is that you Wade?
I don't know that we are in the cap shape to add a significant free agent this year. It really depends on what we do with Anthony Spencer.
Nothing like sucking AND being cap strapped. Now that's a well run team full of distinct advantages due to it's unique structure.
Well I know you know the difference the new system Kiffin might bring in will make, so I have to wonder why you would even want our present safeties on the field.
Sensy is an awful fit, and Church is coming off a horrible injury for a DB. Depending on both of them would be a monumental mistake.
We need playmakers at the safety position... Sensy isn't one.
One can only dream!
Yes, they have to make plans as-if both Church and Matt Johnson are not on the team. Anything that they contribute should be a bonus.
My guess is that Church's Achilles injury was a partial tear and considered minor compared to a complete tear; nonetheless, don't put his name in Ink on the roster.
In training camp, I did think that Church had lost some weight compared to previous years and was faster.
He weighed 222 lbs when he ran the slow 40 time at the combine. He did have excellent agility measureables which were better than Eric Berry's. His 6.65 time in the 3-cone was better than most CBs (the CBs not named Revis).
I think he has the highest vertical jump of any Cowboy...39.5.
But that was when he was coming out of college...
Please don't use Alan Ball as an argument.
He gave up over a 100 yds and TD in the first half to Calvin Johnson.
Fact is that the Texans D has injuries and they don't have quality depth behind those guys.
Ill tell you how stupid our expert at Valley Ranch is...
He doesn't even talk to the people he has hired to give an expert opinion. He talks to Larry freaking Lacewell.
Our front office is a flippin joke and I DO think Cowboyszone could do just as good of a job as Jerry and his buddy Lacewell.
I think Spencer is gone now.
I thought he was a must-sign or must-franchise before the change in defenses.
Now, his best fit would be at the Weak-Side DE which will be Ware's position.
In the 4-3-under, the Strong-Side DE is normally much bigger/stronger similar to a one-gap 3-4 DE; whereas, the Weak-Side DE is more like a 3-4 OLB.
Spencer might have enough speed to play LB in the new system; however, he wouldn't be worth a 10M Franchise tag at that position.
If you watched Matt Johnson's pro day video, the guy that weighed him in the video is a contract scout for an AFC team that saw Johnson first hand and was very high on him. Not only was his team poised to take him with their next pick but he was very surprised that Dallas scooped him up.
Despite the hamstring injuries that he's had the scout is high on him but I agree that it should be a far from a sure thing to count on him.
He has the Combine record for all players not just Cowboys at 46 inches.
For comparison, Michael Jordon's vert was 48 inches.
Alan Ball's season is still ongoing......:bang2:
Thought I had read just under 40 somewhere in the past.
I knew it was high...but 46 is crazy.
