    Ryan said Moore’s time in New England has helped him adjust to the Cowboys.

    “I think they are a multiple team with Bill Belichick and the guy with the beard out there, (Matt) Patricia, but they do a great job of coaching,” Ryan said. “They let their guard down on him and we slipped up and gobbled him up. He’s been an excellent football player. He’s playing all over the place for us. He’s playing inside. He’s playing outside. He’s playing safety. He’s a smart guy but he’s a very talented kid and we really got something here with this guy.”

    We may have found it too. He looks good, all things considered.

    Kinda funny that according to reports going into the season Mike Jenkins was concerned about his 'role'. Welp, here's your role Jenkins, we've got more injuries than a MASH unit.

    Moore can play and he's a fairly good athlete which helps.

    The past couple years we've been doing a really good job picking up players when we need them.

    If Moore can be a good 4th CB for us, that will save us a draft pick next year as well.

    I guess that's the (only) silver lining when guys on IR. If your pro scouting department is good, you can add to the bottom of your roster a bit earlier.

    I took it to mean that he felt NE and their defensive coordinator, Matt Patricia, were a defense that played multiple schemes. Due to that I assume, he's impressed with Moore's ability to do multiple things.

    ....my 94 yr. old grandma is better in coverage than 'McCrap' but....I do worry about Moore vs. the run: he's smaller than McCray isn't he? Anyway, yeah........DO IT! ENOUGH WITH MCCRAP

    Yeah we may lose something in run support with Moore, although I'm not sure who's bigger. But McCray is another Roy Williams in coverage.

    lol, my thoughts as well, problem with guys like Rob who always pump sunshine is that I can't tell what he says actually means because I know every player isn't all pro

    He was reported to be a player who could play some safety. Or, he could stay at CB with Claiborne back and let Carr play more safety as Coe comes up to speed with the defense.

    I didn't notice him out there which usually means a good thing assuming he was playing. I saw Coe out there with Jenkins and Carr but don't really remember seeing Moore out there.

    Moore is indeed a great find by the team. I have it on good account that the Patriots were not only putting him in position to be a CB/S, but they also were using him as a nickel linebacker much the way that Barry Church earned his keep initially with Dallas.

    I checked with my guy as soon as we signed him and he said that the Pats indeed had huge hopes for the guy, especially off the performance he had when they played him down the stretch due to all their injuries. There was a reason the Cowboys extended him a year already when they poached him from the Pats PS.

    Also, don't be surprised if the team gets something out of Michael Coe. No inside info on him but he seems able to keep receivers in front of him and hasn't given up many YAC yards in his limited playing time.

    I think both signings will allow Dallas to focus on the trenches in the draft in another year of having to play salary cap games.
