    I feel Parcells has let this team down in so many ways. Things that made all of us scratch our heads in the offseason (and after that) are all haunting us now.

    1. Fans were screaming for a WR in the offseason. Even Jerry said it was his primary goal to find the next "playmaker". Parcells did not address it. Now, Glenn is our only threat at WR and teams have OFFICIALLY figured that out. Our other guys (keyshawn, Crayton, Copper) can't get open.

    2. Fans were screaming for Parcells to address Right tackle and overall depth at both tackle spots. What does Parcells do? He sign a RG???? While Kareem McKenzie is blowing holes open for Shaun Alexander in Seattle...

    3. Fans were screaming for a kicker. Nope. No kicker. Our kicking game has cost us at least 2 games (Denver and Seattle) for sure.

    4. Fans have been screaming for Parcells to cut his conservative game planning. Keeping teams close has cost us a few games... i.e week 2 - Redskins.

    5. Fans were screaming for us to plug Price into the game plan because of the tremendous big play ability he had with Bledsoe a year or two ago. Rumor is that Parcells didn't want him in the first place. It was Jerry Jones who insisted on it. So Parcells kept him on the bench - can you spell S-P-I-T-E?

    6. Fans have been screaming to bench Tucker / Petiti. Nope! Again Parcells knows best and would rather have Tucker and Petit kill his QB with 7 sacks. For the love of God get Tucker out and plug in Colombo. Apperently, 1ST ROUND PICK Colombo is no where near the talent level of 6th rounder Petiti and undrafted Tucker. How dumb of me. No way would Tucker EVER suit up again for a team of mine. EVER!!!!!!!!!!

    Parcells is too stuck in his ways. Too inflexible. He takes blame but won't change his ways. Very stubborn. Because this team is composed of so many 30 + year old veterans, our window will be very short and we will be rebuilding again in 1-2 years. ON the horizon we will be needing a new QB ( I like Drew but he won't be around forever), 2 new WRs, new LG, new RG, new RT, new LT, new DTs, one new DE.... Overwhelming when you think about it. I was excited about Parcells when he first came in but I did not realize how inflexible, stubborn, and set in his ways he really was. Not so sure he was the best thing for us for the long term.

    Parcells did not ever want to come back to coaching. He wanted to assemble a team of veterans to go out and win for him. Coaching is when you take a talented kid like Henson, Romo, Peterman and Jones and make them into good / great players.

    This whole post is all-for-not because I'm sure Parcells will come out with a conservative game plan this Saturday with Tucker and Petiti as our starting tackles. Can't wait for that game.

    Well, in the end, all you can do is put your finger in the dike and pray.

    If someone can guess where that's from, you win a cookie :)

    I was hoping he would fix the defense, and he started doing that in the off season. There is just so much you can fix in 1 off season

    Go talk with Jones, maybe he will split the team into stock and the fans can GM and coach it.

    So who was the "Playmaker that was available? Randy Moss?
    You mean Mr. Injury?
    Mike Williams?
    bhahahahbahahahahaha!

    You can only draft the guys who are available. There was no wide receiver available to us who would have been a playmaker for this team.

    Would you rather we cut it lose and lose like we did to the Skins in EVERY GAME, with this offensive line and a QB who has had too many panic attacks? :rolleyes:

    You mean the Price who didn't keep running and cost us a touchdown because he wasn't where he was suppose to be on a pass play?


    Colombo isn't healthy is he?
    Who else do the Cowboys have to plug in at LT and RT?

    Yes, Moss. Coles was available. Santana Moss was up for trade. Chiris Henry in Cincinatti is doing well. the options were there if you keep up with the offseason.

    Would you rather we cut it lose and lose like we did to the Skins in EVERY GAME, with this offensive line and a QB who has had too many panic attacks?

    No. I mean the way we cut it loose against the eagles, the Cardinals, the Chiefs. We did not lose against the Redskins because we cut it loose. We lost because we didn't play with heart.

    You mean the Price who didn't keep running and cost us a touchdown because he wasn't where he was suppose to be on a pass play?

    No I mean the Price that Parcells kept benched almost the entire time he was here. the one who had 94 catches 1300 yards and 9 TDs playing WITH Bledsoe. BTW. He was on the field when he did that. Just FYI.

    Colombo isn't healthy is he?
    Who else do the Cowboys have to plug in at LT and RT?

    Yes Colombo is healthy. He's been playing for 2 weeks on special teams. We could have plugged a number of OTs in if we had actually addressed this need in the offseason. the name around here alot was McKenzie. Who happens to be dominating where he is now. That was the point. Parcells ignored tackle and now we're paying for it.

    The bottom line is that BP didn't do everything that he could to make this a better team. THAT is what it all comes down to.

    Yes, the fans sometimes DO know more than the coaches. Yet, some people continue to believe that coaches are unquestionable.

    I've been wanting T-New to return punts, etc., since he got here....BP FINALLY woke up.

    Dude - you got the wrong thread -- this one is the "crazy unrealistic expectation and over-reaction thread" -- I think you wanted the "reasoned analysis from knowledgeable fans threat" -- come back when you have some unfeasible suggestions.

    So sorry.

    We should cut all of our lineman and sign:
    Bentley, Hutchinson, and draft 2 tackles and 1 guard. We should be set then.

    I'm also having trouble finding any "reasoned analysis from knowledgeable fans threat" ???
