    Why do people always say things like, "You didn't pay attention." Yeah dude, I did. The two-deep plus was set, and if you're going to criticize a position, it would be helpful to actually make a point.

    Yeah, I am all for signing John Abraham if this is a serious injury, which it appears to be.

    Knee jerk second guessing aside, losing Crawford this way really, really stinks.

    If it is a tear, I feel bad for the guy. He was working hard this off-seasonI and I was certainly looking forward to seeing more of him this season. All that work and have it come down to a potential career threatening injury during dummy drills, wow!

    Set with what? A bunch of JAGs.

    Aside from our two DEs where exactly were we set?

    Ratliff? Ha! The guy will be battling injuries all year long. As usual.

    Lissemore. Good luck with that.

    Spencer - Hatcher - Ratliff - Ware
    Crawford - Liss - Bass - Albright.

    Ohhh, I see...you're the type fan who thinks we should have all-pros on the bench. In that case, it's useless to discuss this further.

    Apparently Spencer's knee was bothering him, so they are holding him out until they can check it out. He is walking fine and not in pain.

    You're right. It's useless to discuss this further with someone who sees no need to improve upon a DL that generated little pressure last year?

    Fans always over-value their teams talent.

    is it knee jerk to question the escobar pick? there were dlinemen there. we all agreed heading into the draft that we needed to draft on both sides of the trenches. they only got one player.

    Actually, fans always under-value their team's talent. That is especially true for Cowboys fans.
    Care to tell us who you would have drafted? You know, actually put yourself out there instead of just offering blanket criticism. And no one brought up Escobar, so please stop.

    I dont question the Escobar pick. I question the DL personnel not be addressed at all in the draft with three starters over 30, with injury histories and another almost 30 they didnt want to pay.

    Hate the Cowboys obviously, but sorry to hear guys. I never want to see anyone injured regardless of team/division unless its Mike Vick. Time for other guys to step up.

    And, again, you are avoiding suggesting who you would have drafted. Typical.

    Wasnt commenting on Escobar in particular, but In the context of an early season ending injury to a player we were counting on, yeah it's knee jerk to complain that we didn't have even more depth behind him.

    Though, I imagine that if it were Hanna who just went down there would be fans knee jerking in the other direction how stupid it would be to build a 12 offense around just two starting quality TEs.

    Bottom line, when you lose a talented young player for the season, it affects your team's depth. That's not really a news flash.
