    tyron is dinged..might not play.

    free is struggling

    parnell has been thrown to the fire...i think he will be fine though.

    what if free and parnell were to get hurt in this game?

    who would step in at tackle?

    I'm told it's likely Tyron Smith will be the swing tackle Thursday. And Jay Ratliff will be ready. No Murray, obviously.

    Who is really out there that is on a practice squad that can come in and start in the NFL and would be anything other than cannon fodder right now really give me the great list of guys because I want to know which GM left a player that is ready to be a backup Swing Tackle right now and has him on the Practice squad.

    I saw someone here post the other day questioning if an OL on the PS had any utility.

    I think it was one of the moderators.

    Not sure they have a lot since most people on the PS will rarely see any action in the year and if there is an injury and they get called up for is mainly Special teams play.

    If a linemen is on the PS that usually means he is a year or two away due to strength or technique or both.

    I think the exception to that seems to be Running backs they can come in and run from day one what most teams worry about backs coming from the PS and most likely why they are on the PS is pass protection.

    Jerry Jones as GM has severely mismanaged the OL roster and its depth. I mean, coming into week 1 we had no viable backup at C until just days before when we signed Cook. Now we're faced with no depth at T, forcing us to put up with Free's poor play, and scrambling to find a body - any body - should Tyrone Smith not play due to injury. This is pathetic!

    But Jerry said he was very happy with the OL play after the game and how proud he was of Free for turning his game around and having a stellar performance. Do you not believe what Jerry said?

    How dare Jerry not realize that three Cowboys' centers would get knocked out by the first two minutes of the first game! Every real GM has 5 centers just waiting!
    Which is pretty much where we are at now.

    I think it is clear that both think that Free has some confidence problems. He is really solid as an athlete but he isn't attacking and getting after his guy enough.

    From a coaching standpoint, calling out someone who may have a confidence issue is probably not a great idea.

    I really hope that we've got Free working with a sports psychologist on this part of his game. He may not be the strongest guy but when he uses good technique and gets into his guy, he does a good job

    That is true.

    But as a GM he very much screwed up the Nagy situation. Gee, one spot out of 70 to make sure you keep a guy you like?
