This is how I am reading Bill Parcells and our dallas cowboys. At quaterback, I really don't get the perception that Parcells doesn't like Henson. He simply realizes that he isn't exactly ready to go out there, he has a limited amount of experience. He won't be sent to NFL Europe, because that is a deadman's zone for journeymen getting a last chance. After Bledsoe has learned the system thouroughly, Henson will get more playing time in the next preseason. He doesn't have to do anything this year. He describes Bledsoe as ready, Romo as improving, and Henson is young and developing. He says it's obvious that Romo has more experience, and he does. This is Romo's 3rd year, and just last year he was the 3rd quarterback behind even Henson. I think Parcells' uneasiness regarding the quarterback position has to do with the lack of experience from Romo more than anything else. Romo is the backup, and you'd want to see more experience from him. They signed Romo to a two year contract, so we'll see Romo develop for this year and next year. If he improves enough he'll be resigned as a career backup or our next starter, but that's only if Henson doesn't improve more than him. There is a possibility that they might want Romo to be a Jason Garret of this era. Jerry Jones sees Henson as a 1st round draft pick, and will give him the equivalent opportunity. We're not going to draft a quarterback, and we're not going to sign or trade for any veterans. We're sold on Henson, whether some fans like it or not. At running back, there is a problem regarding how many players we take. We want Anthony Thomas just incase anything happens to Jones, but you don't want a player just to take up a spot. So there is a definite possibility that we will simply take Jones, Barber, and Thompson. Anthony Thomas wasn't long term, and I believe we might even try trading him to a team like Philadelphia (yes i know they are in our division). I think there is a good chance that we'll try to sign Clarett to our practice squad. Whether that will be an opportunity for us is uncertain. I think the front office really liked him, and would have drafted him in the 5th round. I think they settled for Barber. Although clearly Barber was a better choice. At tight end it's really close. They don't want to keep Robinson on the roster because he is so expensive, but you don't really have anyone who has stepped up on long snaps. This is probably Robinson's last year on the roster though. Witten and Campbell are locks of course, and it's really between that 4th tight end either Pierce or Ryan (curtis has no chance), and taking a fullback in Lousaka Polite. I think Polite has the best chance at making the team. I think there are huge questions on the offensive line. I've heard Peterman has regressed, which doesn't make me happy about our offensive line drafting. I'm not worried about Rivera, I think they kept him out for precautionary reasons. Right tackle is still very much the question. I think we'll be look at the waiver wire, and free agency before all i said and done. If Pettiti wasn't injured I think he would have the spot down. I think we'll see the first team offensive line play at least the first half on thursday. On defense Davis is pretty much going to be the starter. I think Scott will beat out Coady. And Beriault will back up Williams. There is no way he gets waived. The biggest questions in the lb corps is whether we should or should not keep Singleton I think. I think Burnett has shown he should be the starter. And I'd rather go with Ware, Burnett, Thornton, and Ogbogu, than keep Singleton. The problem with that is there isn't a lot of experience there. I think Thornton will be dropped, unfortunately. There is a lot of depth at inside linebacker, and I think Parcells is having a hard time decided whether to go with 4 inside linebackers or more defensive tackles, and simply take 3, since Burnett can slide inside, there is also a possibility that we take 5 outisde linebackers, and 3 inside linebackers. On the defensive line. You have your locks in Ellis, Glover, Ferguson, Spears, and Canty. That's 5 total locks. 3 defensive ends, and 2 tackles. I think Kenyon Coleman gets that 4th tackle spot, and the rest really depends on what we do at linebacker. You want to take both Carson and Johnson, but you don't dislike Ratliff, so what can you really do here. I guess you have to measure the potential of the players individually.
