    I think Bill is not unlike the majority of us here in that he realizes Petitti is potentially a good backup but is a liability as the starter for RT.

    Bill knows that the RT position gave us fits this season and by being unprepared for the loss of Adams, we suffered severly. I fully expect him to adress the depth on the O-Line aggressively this offseason.

    Dallas hasn't selected an Offensive Lineman in the 1st round since 1981. I think it's about time we did. I'm sick and tired of these projects and backups and values and bandaids and Tuckerses and Vollerses. It's no mystery why our O-Line has sucked for as long as I can recall.

    I think you also have to factor in Columbo but I agree with you. I am not as down on Pettiti as many are. I expect substantial improvement in Robs physical strength, stamina and over all understanding of the position relative to the NFL. I guess I just have faith in this kid. Having said that, I would not be surprised to see us take an OL in the second round or, if there's a guy we really like that falls to us.

    There's a kid at UNM that plays Center who I believe could translate to RT in the NFL. Has really good feet and excellent size. Ryan Cook could be a guy who we drafted a bit later. Can play any of the three positions on the OL though he's 6'7 which is a bit tall for Center and Guard in the NFL.
