Thanks JJT...I had no idea
Bernie is never consistent. That has been shown his entire career- you cannot rely on him
It's unfortunate that Waters didn't smother JJT with a pillow in the bedding section
You're in the minority view at present. He played well last year and our line was ranked high and well thought of. I don't think Mack is as good as Waters but that will depend on age and health, too. I still don't like Mack's feet but I didn't watch much film last year so take that with a grain of salt.
So there is competition at RG. They want a C/G to come in and compete. They want a better replacement for Costa and a better game day guy to backup C and G. Otherwise I think the OL is in good shape knock on wood. We are still one play away from playing Parnell or Weems. I don't know what they think of them at present. They were happy with both last year esp Parnell. I suspect one of them can play. They think a lot of both guys but they are at the end of being developed.
I still have DE, DT, S, LB, and C as the pressing needs on the team. So basically that's the entire D needs an influx of talent. Pass rusher and a 3 are the most pressing followed closed by S then C then LB. Of course you're always looking to upgrade every position on the team.
Instead of Waters, I would just as soon like to see the Cowboys use a 2nd or 3rd rounder on a guard.
I would probably move C (or a guard who can play center) up about the same level of importance as safety.
He is a young guy and he played better last year than he ever did before. That doesnt mean I wouldn't draft a guard or bring in a mid rangge back up. But I wouldnt bring back waters.
Actually I was talking about CB not C but I can make a case for a C just like one for a T. I addressed center/guard earlier and just forgot to put that on the wish list. I agree they need to look to upgrade there and they are looking; or that's the rumor.
I don't know the contract options on Waters. I'd like to have him for another year and hope to find a guy later or undrafted to compete at G. I just don't know if the money spent on Waters is worth it in the long run if you have Mack playing and you're looking for a C/G for depth. So they may certainly move in that direction come draft day if the right guy falls in their lap. Otherwise I think they will look at defense in the first two days more critically than offense. But they have enough holes to go BPA IMO.
Do not forget that DL.
I think Waters coming back will depend on money and who they have on their board.
I'd be more inclined to bring him back if i thought this team was going anywhere next year. I think they need to think young and cheap. IMO
Next year is a waste of time for everyone. No need to bring him back.
No worry about that!
I was referring to the list that Jobber made...
If they had money to spare for Waters... I'd just as soon see it spent on a Dlineman.
Depending on what they do with Ware, the only guys I can see as being sure things when it comes to making the final roster (barring injury of course) when it comes to the defensive line are Crawford and Selvie.
That leaves 5-6 open spots.
If they could sign a couple FA defensive linemen we're down to 3-4 spots.
Add a couple rookie draft picks and we're down to 1-2 spots.
Let folks like Hayden, Bass and an undrafted free agent or two battle it out for the final spot or two.
You should have a lot of free time on Sundays then.
That works for me. Their draft needs will change some based on their FA acquisitions.
And they may feel that way. I suspect they are feeling good about Leary and Mack and I know they are wanting a C/G so they may part ways primarily over money but also he's older and more injury prone as well as more expensive.
I doubt if I watch as much next year.
I'm pretty bored with this team. They are absolutely pathetic and give no reason for hope.
