    Talent-wise how do you think these two groups compare? Which would you rather have?

    This may be the unpopular pick but I'm going with TO/Witten/Glenn.

    If Troy was the QB the group we have now If I could choose and mix and match I'd take T.O. and M.I....... I don't think witten is any better than Jay so either would do just fine

    I think the trio of Owens/Witten/Glenn has more talent. Parcells is always talking about Terry's talent, and we know how gifted Owens and Witten are.

    But I would rather have Irvin/Novacek/Harper because of Irvin's intangibles.

    I second.

    I'm not sure this would be the unpopular pick based on talent and potential.

    True. There is a major sentiment factor with Irvin/Harper/Novachek. Good times there.

    TO = Irvin
    Glenn > Harper
    Witten < Novacek

    Since Witten has the potential to do just as well, if not better, than Novacek, the modern day trio gets the nod, but we've go to give props to the Super Bowl winning trio. This group hasn't done it yet.

    Id take the old school boys and never look back.

    How could anyone call Irvin and TO a push? Irvin was an emotional leader of this team, TO for all the talent he posseses is a detractor from chemistry. Yeah Witten is good but Novacek was always there on 3rd and 6 or when we needed a big catch, I love Jason but I cant say the same thing for him.

    I'll agree with Glenn over Harper but as a group, I'll take what worked.

    T.O. has the speed and the break away ability.
    Irvin could catch anything, and was a route running genius. I say *equal*

    Glenn is a better receiver by far over Alvin Harper. I say *Glenn*

    Witten is a nice solid strongish TE.
    Jay Nov could get open whenever he wanted to. I say *Jay Novacek

    Judging player-by-player talent wise, I'd take the current trio. I personally think Witten will go down as the best tight end in Cowboys history, and Glenn is a better and more consistent contributor than Harper. TO and Irvin are a bit of a wash; TO better in some ways, Irvin in others. It's hard to argue with TO's stats, though.

    But, talent alone doesn't win. Will this trio work as well together as Irvin, Harper and Novacek did? Who knows if TO and Glenn will "really" provide a good duo?

    And, as the first poster said, I'd much rather have Troy -- not to mention that offensive line!!! -- throwing to this group.

    That's why I feel this current group is better "talent wise," but not necessarily in terms of production. Those guys back then complemented each other so well. Not to mention the obvious chemsitry.

    TO and Glenn look good on paper. Will it on Sundays? We don't know yet.
