    Some of you want line, some of you want OLB/DE.

    Romo has jittery feet because the line yes, but he was still 25/35 and could of been 28/35 without drops. Our pressure was fine, we got what, 3 sacks and numerous pressures/hits on a good o-line?

    With a half-decent safety back there we would of limited their passing game to about 250. There were numerous times where McCray and Sensy just looked loss.

    Stop.

    Our o-line sucks. We have one "decent" player in Smith, the rest need to go. they can't run block to save their lives.

    1st pick should be an OL or DL. Control the ball, win the game.

    Would have been nice to see Church stay healthy all year to see if he is actually a player.

    I dunno, we need smarter players for a lot of positions. We have plenty of holes to fill.

    Safety is definitely not our #1 concern.

    We got beat on seam patterns because McCray is not what we need at that position, but the fact remains that despite Ryan throwing for almost 400 yards, they scored 1 touchdown on the ground, Gonzales was largely neutralized, and their all-world receivers had no TD catches. Hell, Ryan didn't even throw for a TD.

    I firmly believe we win that game if Garrett would step back and just let Romo play ball. Go hurry up and don't stop.

    It just seems to me that Garrett has 5-7 plays on his little sheet and even then has trouble choosing one. It is obvious when people sitting at home know what you're going to do before you do it.

    We need safety help, there is no question. But this team isn't in a position to go after one position, we just have too many needs with pass rusher, OL, and safety being chief among them.

    Don't know why anyone with eyes can't see the need, but come draft time our needs are so great that getting the best available player will be more important than drafting for position.

    I know you like your DB's so I figured you would have at least mentioned how many times we were beat by the deep ball last night which eventually put points on the board. We need a dependable safety back there. I know you love Church, I could be wrong but I don't seem him being a dynamic S. If we got a FS our Defense would be SOLID. I think the position should be addressed in the 1st or 2nd, taking our position and BPA into consideration of course.

    That's a good question. I'm not sure. He still isn't the solution. He's a temporary fix.

    I would be happy if we just drafted either an O-Line or D-Line every round and just choose the best available.

    We need to draft a safety, sensabaugh will start next year due to being a 3.75 cap hit if kept or a 3.45 cap hit if cut. I think next year is his last year. Also church just got a new deal. We meed to draft a safety to replace sensy, but I don't think its our #1 need.

    Oline and pass rush is top priority IMO.

    Safety is a huge concern too.

    Everything touched on so far is an obvious need. Another area where this team is lacking but doesn't get much play is WR. Unreliable and overrated are the two best terms that I can think of to describe this trio.

    It is not the number one concern, however Matt Elam Florida is a difference maker

    Safety could/should be resolved before the draft happens:

    Sign this guy in free agency:
    [IMG]

    In 3 and a half years, he has 16 INT, 24 PD, and 9 FF. Only 26 years old.

    O-Line!

    We haven't even been getting burned deep this season. We also have Church injured who is young and showing promise. We must upgrade the line if we want to move the ball consistently. Too many penalties and pressures forcing us into third and long. It completely kills any momentum.

    I would love this and draft a safety for the future, depending on which safeties come out. Byrd would be great FS in Ryan system and you can let Sensy and Church battle for SS.

    there are to many DTs in this draft that I think will grade right up there with Star. he is good but I can trade back or wait and get a DT almost as good if not better.

    kawann short and sylvester williams and nix are three guys that I think are right there
