    No question. This is the most offensive line I've ever seen. I'd love to have our 2010 line back.

    I guess Sturm is not in complete agreement with Jerry. Or maybe they were watching different games.

    we really should stop acting as if Jerry truly believes everything that comes out of his mouth.

    Great read and spot on points, both positive and negative.

    In talking about the short vs deep passing game. I just always wonder why JG can not balance anything out. He seems to have to go all in, one way or another. He's always been that way. THe half time adjsutment back to the short game is good but it why does it take 30minutes to see what is working?

    Also, please run a screen or roll out. Just try it, cant be any worse than the 7 sacks.

    Yeah, but saying something that is so contrary to what everyone else sees isn't putting a positive spin on anything. Nothing constructive comes out of saying such a thing. At worst, it does make him look like he is utterly clueless about this team, about the game of football in general. At best, it makes him look disingenuous, not to be trusted, someone who simply refuses to acknowledge mistakes.

    So if he doesn't believe it, and if there isn't anything positive than can come from spinning a tale, why do it?

    But he just destroys his credibility in doing so, which means people will take what he says with a grain of salt. Like the boy who cried wolf, lie enough and people won't take you seriously anymore. Why would someone who so desperately wants to be known for being a good football mind who can be a very positive force in putting together a team damage his credibility like this?

    Maybe it's the whole "yes man" thing -- surround yourself with enough of these people, and you really do lose touch with reality. Maybe he actually believes that fans are still buying into what he's saying because there is no one around him telling him otherwise, no one to tell him that he is making himself look like an absolute fool? Man, what a bubble that must be.

    people SHOULD take what he says with a grain of salt. I have for years. I don't believe he has any credibility to be damaged.

    Wow, this article sums up my feeling on the Cowboys 2012 OL.

    Many of us saw this coming, and we had our fingers crossed .... But it is what it is.

    ok....if we should stop believing what comes out of his mouth....should we then believe what he actually does? The fact that in the prime of the careers of Romo, Ware, Witten, Ratliff etc....we have ONE.....ONE OL...that could find a starting job in a quality organization...should we look at that as proof that he believes in this OL?

    huh? of course not. why would the fact that we have one OL who could start somewhere else prove that jerry believes in this OL?

    Sturn has been consistently good this year; really enjoy reading his stuff, even if the truth hurts.

    Article sent a chill down my spine as to the possible hopelessness of our future under jerruh. Cowboys are like the little dutch boy trying to plug holes in the dike. They will get the o line fixed and it will be time to replace romo ware and witten. Round and round it goes

    I don't which prospect I find more troubling--that it had to get this bad before the Cowboys realized they had serious problems along their offensive line, or that the Cowboys thought they could remedy their problems with Bernadeau, Livings, and Costa.

    Think part two is most scary! Question is does the front office just think they are smarter than everybody else that Livings et al is a viable upgrade
