    The Dallas fanbase overrated him, so expectations were set to high. He is overpayed, but that comes with signing free agents instead of drafting them.

    Lee has been injury prone since college.. but when he is on the field he is the best guy playing.

    If your referring to Miles Austin he is still performing as a top 20 WR despite all the injuries :laugh1:. Once again when healthy he is top 5. It is truly sad he has to battle so many injuries. Anyone thinking we should move on from him is ignorant because we then would have to spend atleast a 1st round pick on replacing him. A waste.

    Miles Austin will come out stronger, faster, smarter. The team has been saving our star players for when it counts, I hope!

    I bet he does...

    Don't think he's top 5 even when he's healthy. He has taken a step backwards this year. Some will say it started last year.

    He is what he is. The guy is a good CB, but he's not great. He doesn't have the "ball hawk" look I like to see out of secondary guys.

    If the Cowboys had more pressure on defense, maybe we will see some ints...

    I think we will.

    I'm happy. Just wish he was cheaper.

    It's too difficult with these rules for a DB to be dominant.

    Can't argue that point, but Carr has never been much of a turnover machine. It just feels like we don't have a lot of play-making talent on defense when it comes to turnovers.

    Good player. Obviously we paid too much to sign him but that's the nature of free agency. Fortunately he's still relatively young and he'll be good player for at least another 3-4 years.

    You just said Miles Austin is a top 5 WR and you're calling other people ignorant?

    That's rich.

    I've always been happy with the signing, I knew he wasn't a number 1 shutdown corner but thats not what we needed, the secondary last year was nothing short of awful, Carr this year has he got beat? Yes, he's going to get beat in the future as well, but he is a darn good corner who'll keep his man in check and not let him run amuck week after week and that's all we needed

    As for Carr, yeah....about what I expected. Absolutely no impact whatsoever. Money and a chance to add a real impact player completely flushed down the toilet.

    Maybe he's referring to him as a top 5 WR in the NFC East?

    I don't know if I'd go as far to say that he's had no impact at all. He's a definite upgrade over what we've had the past few years.

    At this point, that's even debatable.

    Exactly. Only the blind can't see the good difference between last year and this year.

    Sadly, I can't argue with you on that point.

    Yeah. I think that a lot of people saw the contract, and the expectations were just through the roof (and rightfully so). But I don't think a lot of people realize that he's never been a play-making CB.
