    If it's reasonable for a 2nd or 3rd in this draft to improve our line it's just as reasonable for Crawford to do so. He'll get significant playing time, good or bad. He looked like a better Jason Hatcher to me (compared to Hatcher at his age).

    At least Matt Johnson is not the topic of safety greatness this offseason. The draft class with Mo, Crawford and Johnson received a ton of hype, but have provided little on the field. It is showing hints of being a very bad class. Not as bad as the 2009 class, but it is getting close if a couple of these players don't step up.

    I'm sorry I have little to no hope. If Romo comes back 100%, which I believe he will, I will have a little hope as he's our only chance since our offense is outdated and sucks.

    Outside of that we wait for our new HC. We need a countdown clock at the top of CZ with that countdown instead of the draft/training camp clock! :p

    Thanks to the talent. If Garrett were fired today most would still expect this to be a top 5-10 offense next year.

    Jerry is over 70. Probably have maybe 10 years, 15 max, of him running the team. Even though Stephen will probably take it over at that point I don't think he will have the same ego and power-hungry drive Jerry has.

    Even if Stephen takes on the GM role, I doubt he'll be getting his info outside the organization from idiots like Lacewell and Switzer. Also think Stephen would hire a quality HC and let the coach run the football aspects of the team like most normal teams. Doubt Stephen will be so egotistical as Jerry to hire just slightly empowered coordinators to be HC while he hires much of the staff or make game strategy demands of the coaches like Jerry has done.

    So while I can't give you immediate hope for the near future, I think we are in the 4th quarter of Jerry being the hands on owner/gm of the team. Guess we just have to bide our time and wait for him to be gone from the organization. At that point, I think we will be able to have real hope again.

    I think in the 2014 NFL season...follow me here, because I am going to want your feedback. I think in the 2014 NFL season.... Jerry Jones + Jason Garrett = Winning the Super Bowl for this franchise.

    there you go! I like a 'staff member' that demonstrates a good sense of humor late at night. A pay raise for you will be suggested.
