    Agree, I think he's getting too beat up.

    What are these workouts with Marinovich's dad, though? Running away from birthday cake icing? Seriously though, haven't heard of this.

    You guys are unbelievable

    Let him be a Cowboy, and do the things he did. He would be a God around here.

    If that's the case, Ware is overrated as well.....Get's a sack early in the game and disappears

    Polamalu has consistently worked out with Marv Marinovich in the offseason rather than with the Steelers. no big deal, but Ol Marv made it seem like he was re-inventing the wheel with workouts and #43 would avoid muscle pulls and be better conditioned than anyone else. Basically, he's a snake oil salesman.

    That's right. They may have a guy projected for the 2nd or later as their top safety pick.

    We put players in a basic system and make them play basic football.

    We won't think outside of the box for anyone.

    If they are anywhere in the first three rounds and Safety is at the top of their board, then they should pull the trigger. I am just as tired of crappy Safety play as I am poor O-line and D-line.

    Having said that, I doubt they go into the draft with a gaping hole there. They will nab a Free Agent.

    Things I always find amusing.......

    Fans who take anything said pre-draft at face value.
    Fans who believe everything is about the OL/DL.
    Fans who think they know better.
    Fans who dislike trading up or down in the draft.

    Far too many unknowns to say for certain where an excellent player would best help this team......OL, DL or S.

    I've always been an advocate of moving early picks up or down as often as possible to give the best chance of having the BPA fill a need.

    It totally makes sense. In a draft where there is a lot of good O-line and D-line players take a Safety!

    It does crack me up when a Cowboys fan is adamantly opposed to trading up. We landed Dez by trading up. We landed Lee by trading up. We landed Claiborne by trading up. Heck, we landed Emmitt by trading up.

    I meant it more in the weird-to-see-a-PIT-icon-with-that-hair-and-a-Star kind of way. Though, injuries aside, I think he's been a great player. He gets more than his share of attention for the hair, but at his peak, he's an impact defensive player.

    No way. That can mean moving to a spot to take a lesser talent simply because of need.

    No matter how you gift wrap it, drafting for need is a terrible idea.
