    Try impossible....yeesh. I'm disappointed in my cowboys too but not because they aren't trying. I just want them to do better. They addressed 1 of our biggest concerns last year with TSmith and then this year with Carr and Claiborne. People don't understand you cant draft a 1st round pick for every position. You have to hit on the cheap free agents and late round picks to be competitive. We will get there. It's just hard waiting.

    I've hated a bunch of them. Surprisingly they were all Kickers. I don't know how that happened.

    I do not think anyone thought J J Watt was going to be this dominating back when the draft was taken place. I mean, if the draft had a do-over, J Watt would have been the second pick behind Cam Newton.

    It reminds me of D Ware who is the best player from 2005 draft. However, I do not think anyone can foresee it before the 2005 draft either. We lucked it out with him.

    Tom Brady wasn't highly rated and JJ Watt was. The Cowboys needed another pass rusher and Watt was one of the players on the Cowboys radar.

    Yep -- pretty much this.

    Watt wasn't <that> highly touted coming out of Wisconsin. I mean he was considered a top half of the 1st round guy, but nobody was talking about him like they talked about Suh (2010), or even Fairly (2011).
