Here's a crying towel.
I would bring him back next season. He was doing a great job in the Detroit game against Suh and Fairley until him got his ankle rolled up on and then came back later and hurt his arm. Nothing wrong with having some depth on the O-line.
Some of the fans here ought to switch places with a fan in Buffalo or Cleveland or Oakland for a season and see how following a non-competitive franchise is really like.
Someone can be displeased with the current team or the prospects for next season, and not have to throw in the towel, pout or cry about it.
We are a bigger joke than those teams even.
People pretty much called our entire season last year and laughed about it happening before the season ever started.
Another year of Garrett too? Absolute joke. We're just a shinier version of those joke franchises.
I'm sorry that you can't enjoy the sport unless your team is more competitive than the Cowboys.
How do you enjoy this?
I'd love to know.. Just completely stop caring?
Sure I care.
But I put it in context with other things in life.
It's sport. It's not the end of the world. We could be the Rams who's fan base every year lives in fear of the team packing up and moving tomorrow, all while enduring 4 win seasons every year for the past decade. We could be the Bills who blew four straight Super Bowl appearances and haven't sniffed the playoffs in 14 years. The Raiders and Browns are national punchlines. Yeah we've been 8-8 the last few years, but it could be a lot worse.
And you know what? If we pull another 8-8 this year or miss the playoffs, you can bet your bottom dollar every coach on this roster will probably be shown the door and we can start anew. Which is a big positive for the pessimists.
we are not the joke of the NFL.
not yet anyway....
Drafting a guard is absolutely essential in this draft.
I'd rather have Waters standing on the sideline as a coach.
That's not a bad idea. Or a player/coach.
No... it's not a bad idea.
Who knows how it's going to play out as far as cap room.
We could have really used Brian Waters as an offensive line coach at the end of the Detroit game...
Waters: "Alright guys, gather round! We're going back on offense with a buck and a quarter left in this game! Let's keep this drive alive! If we stall, the clock will still run because, ha HA, they're outta timeouts! So, no stupid penalties! Hey! Tyron! Big boy! Mr. Pro Bowl! Pay attention! Alright then, on three! One, two, three, Cowboys!"
I doubt he's ready to hang those paychecks up. The more I think about it though the more I think you're right. Why spend that money on a G at his age when we can get younger. I don't know the contract status of Mack though. That could swing the pendulum as well as how much they trust him.
If he uses his credit card to purchase anything, then there is a good chance he will need to play another season to recoup the money that was hacked from his account.
This may be great news for Dallas.
Shop on, Waters!!!
People keep talking about how we need to draft a C/G combo backup. I disagree. This past season showed how important a center can be to the entire O-line. I think Mack is the perfect backup in this league. He can back up any interior position. He can also start at any interior position and play decently. He's like Kyle Orton. Orton is better than a lot of starters in this league, but if he is you're starter, then you should think about upgrading. That's how I feel about Mack. I think we're fine with our starting O-line this year. I'm fine with Smith-Leary-Beard-Mack-Free. I think we should draft a pure guard who has the potential to start in a year or two, and keep Mack as the starting guard until then. If, god forbid, something happens to Beard, I'd feel more comfortable sliding Mack over to center and plugging in the rookie we draft at guard. That is, I'd feel more comfortable than I would if we just plugged in a backup C/G rookie that we draft this year to take over for an injured Beard. We don't need to draft a C/G. We already have our C/G in Mack. We need to draft a pure OG who can be a long-term starter in a year or two.
Please define where the Mendoza line is on being the joke of the NFL and not being the joke of the NFL.
Because it sure seems there are a great deal of fans across the NFL spectrum that laugh at Dallas at every opportunity.
I know what you're saying and I don't disagree. Rookie guard... center... guard/center... I think as long as a rookie can play one of those positions at an acceptable level, it will give some valuable depth.
I feel you. And I'm saying I prefer a star or a veteran to play center since I view center as more important than guard. If Beard goes down, I'd prefer Mack playing center over anyone we could draft in this upcoming draft.
