    Of course it can always work. That's only part of the problem. The other half is in order to make it work, you push cap burdens down the road and possibly forego other areas of need.

    Dallas backed itself into a corner regarding Spencer. They shouldn't have tagged him last year because it's a no-win situation for Dallas. Now they've used up 9M in cap space that could have been used to sign a guy long term or even avoid some restructuring last year, thus dropping the cap number this year and years beyond and they are no better off right now than the day the season ended last year in terms of having an OLB.

    They held themselves hostage.

    Broaddus just said it. Firing Skip Peete was a personal issue between Peete and the head coach. "Same thing happened to Ray Sherman".

    Nothing wrong with that in my eyes. If the HC doesn't want you and y'all aren't on the same page then he's got to go.

    What that Pete wanted to run the ball, and JG didn't?

    They should have paid him what he was worth at the time. We needed to keep him, anyway.

    but it does as regards going out and getting other FA's. The fact that the cap will not be going up is a big reason we cannot sign Spencer. With the situation regarding the team as a whole we cannot afford him. You can get two very good FA's just for what Spencer would cost.

    You are also ignoring the situation with Ware as well. And soon Lee and others will be coming up. Where is all that cap space going to come from. People need to think about things like that

    Bottom line with me is that Spencer is not going to put this team over the top. They need some serious youth in the trenches and that is where they can improve significantly (draft) between now and next season.

    Dallas came out better for firing Sherman he was undermining the coach and had to go. Young backs on this team havent improved so they needed to play Felix on 2 balky knees that is why Peete had to go. You can always start not getting along with people after 4 years and those issues werent up at the beginning of being around that person

    It doesn't bother me. I wanted the skins to win and do well in the playoffs just so that it pisses jerry off and hopefully forces him to make some changes. Other than that i love cowboys and hate the skins!

    Anyone cheering for the redskins to win in the playoffs no matter what reason is not a Cowboys fan in my book
