    The failure is on those who hyped him up as if he were the second coming of Moose Johnston.

    I still like Vickers, but he has been a terrible dissapointment on the field.

    Yeah, it makes you think.

    This gang is just soft. All of Dallas' "leaders" are nice guys, or have become nice guys after some time.

    Poppinga will be cut for not being the RKG.

    Going full speed when the rest of the team has been instructed to play to "thud" is not tough, it is idiotic.

    Therein very well may be the issue with the Cowboys in general.

    I think you mean the other way around, right? I mean someone on roids is more animal than human

    Right. I'd rather watch people acting like sentient beings. Romanowski was an animal. He's not so good as a human.

    Exactly. No one practices full speed all the time. It's not allowed by the CBA, and it would be stupid even if it was allowed.

    For the most part, but he also is nursing some injuries and probably doesn't appreciate the contact during a practice.

    Poppinga is practicing for a job and Vickers is practicing.

    First of all.. I don't think anyone said anything bad about Vickers in all this.

    I do like the intensity and a little craziness that Popp is bringing already though. Reminds me of the LB from The Replacements movie haha.

    We need a little crazy on this defense.

    Im pretty sure you're allowed to practice full speed.. and if you arn't practicing full speed, why even practice?

    If its not a walkthrough session.. i see no reason not to go full speed. If you don't you arn't really learning anything anyway because reading and reacting at game speed is a hell of alot different than just half arsing it. You arn't preparing yourself for Sunday if you're just out there dogging it.

    Hell man.. a couple years ago people were all over Anthony Spencer's jock over him saying he wasn't practicing hard enough and it was effecting his play in games.. now all of a sudden we expect guys to not be going hard?

    Silly Cowboys fans..

    I think I hope what Poppinga has is contagious.

    Problem is, with the new CBA, and the limited number of times you can practice in pads, pretty much all practices are in cupcake mode. Plus, with the number of injuries we've had, the last thing you want is for a guy to go down in practice.

    I want tough guys, not crybabies. If Vickers was pissed, he should have punched him in the face.

    The LAST guy you want whining about playing through the whistle is your full back.

    Someday, before I leave this world, I hope to get the pleasure of enjoying the Cowboys as a well coached, physical, hard-nosed, and intelligent team. Sadly, I don't have such hope. So frustrating.
