    Is there any word on what the cowboys might be doing to address the need at safety? Free agency or the draft? Or do you think they'll end up starting the year off with sensabaugh & church starting?

    We have much bigger fish to fry. OL, DL and LB come to mind. Matt Johnson and a cheap veteran is all I foresee.

    I totally agree with addressing the o-line before anything, but I personally think we'll be good at linebacker next year. I think lee playing the mike, carter playing the will and Sims playing the Sam will be fire. And the d-line seemes pretty straight if we end up keeping Ratliff. Id like to seem them move Hatcher inside with rat, and having Crawford play LE or maybe signing or drafting a LE

    Sorry but the safety position is one of the most important positions in kiffin's defense .. They're not going to trust that glass house Matt Johnson no one knows if this guy can even play. The safeties must be able to read cover ground back there, church is coming off an acl, Johnson never played a down. And Jerry spent money on oline last year. I bet he signs a low tier oline guy and draft a few later he won't go oline early watch. Not saying we don't need to improve the oline.. In just saying what Jerry is more likely to do. But safety can't be ignored this year. The secondary must be in sync in Monte's 4-3 ... Seahawks safeties are good, and Tampa had John lynch Monte will want a safety

    So what do you think they'll end up doing? sign a big name FA safety? Or draft one?

    it's Kiffin's call--we might already have the guys for his scheme between healthy safeties, guys hurt last year,and maybe a converted corner.

    Church and Johnsons health is a very tenuos situation. But I believe the Boys like what they have in them. I wouldn't b e surprised to see a guy like Amerson drafted to add to the mix instead of one of the more regularly ranked Safties

    Have we even heard whether or not Matt Johnson's hamstring ever healed?

    Don't be surprised if they nab a FS with the 18th pick.

    Yes, he was to resume practice right after the last game. Had we Mae the playoffs he would have practiced and played.

    I definitely want the OL/DL addressed early an often. However, if they have Vacarro as their #1 safety and more highly rated than the linemen that are left, then they should draft him since we could use a safety.

    What are the team's issues year after year? We lack depth at OL and S, because year after year we virtually ignore these in the top rounds of the draft.

    If the best player available at 18 is a FS we better well take him.

    LThis team needs an all-around S with range to cover sideline to sideline.

    How many more 3rd and long's can we endure with the opposing converting first downs because our FS can't cover?

    How many more bottom-in-INTs statistics can we endure because the FS can't jump routes or cover deep?

    We NEED a top FS, bottom line, and if we're smart we're looking for that guy in rounds 1 or 2, not free agency. That's because those guys don't hit free agency, and the lesser SS that do cost too much.

    Well i was hoping they would get Kenny Vaccaro, since im a Texas fan. But that was a while back & his draft stock has risen so high then. I like matt Johnson & iv seen his highlights, but has he even played a down yet? People are putting hope in this dude & he hasn't even played

    Exactly everything you just said! We need a top flight safety!
