    I'am hoping it's Watkins, so he'll put to rest our worries at FS.

    You really think that way? You REALLY believe that even if we are 0-6, Tuna won't play Romo?

    I am stunned by your answer.

    You're joking, right?

    If you're not, give me your reasons.

    Here are mine:
    Romo impresses me as very intelligent, well liked and respected by players and coaches, great pocket presence, accurate arm, quick on his feet, he doesn't let mistakes bother him, he thinks he can win every game...and he's hungry to silence his critics (like you) with his play on the field.

    With these four years under Parcell's (Tony idolizes the Tuna) tutilage, scrutiny and encouragement, Romo is our next Aikman!

    Book it!

    I don't care who's the TC suprise, Randal Williams was TC king for a couple of years, but stunk it up in the preseason

    but I'll play, Marc Columbo

    I think Carpenter is already a lock to start at OLB, provided he shows well in TC and preseason, he doesn't have to have an all-world TC and preseason, just needs to look capable, and BP will start him, see Ware last year

    and btw, for those of you who chose Burnett as your suprise player, Zimmer was raving about him at one time last year, so he wouldn't come as much shock to me, as I know he's capable of impressing

    I'd love to see Dennis Roland make the team.

    He's from the same town I live in.

    Look out for Shanle....He's on The Answer's "5 players to watch this summer" list.

    He had a career year last season before he got hurt and Ayodele is going to have to fight awful hard to win the starting job from Scott especially since he has valuable experience playing in Parcell's 3-4 and Ayodele has never played that style of defense yet.

    You are correct. Mroz stands little chance to unseating Henson from the roster. Oh wait, you meant....... :D

    Burnett>Ayodele>Shanle

    Shanle is a career backup/ST player. He doesn't have the motor or recognition to be an NFL starter.

    wrong.

    Shanle should tackle your sorry *** into oblivion, but the great Shanle is merciful.

    Last year in training camp Scott Shanle brought a stillborn baby lamb back to life by giving it a prolonged pad rub. Shortly after the farm animal sprang back to life and a crowd had gathered, Sott Shanle tackled the animal, breaking its neck,to remind the team once more that the good Scott giveth, and the good Scott, he taketh away.

    The kid is a warrior.....and he showed that last year when he stepped to the plate in Dat's absence.

    The Answer has always had a keen eye for talent and Shanle is the real deal, the critics will be silenced this summer....

    We heard that last summer as well.

    Shanle is a good backup, but he is exposed in coverage situations, he doesn't recognize plays quickly enough, etc. All he has going for him is size - and although that is a big deal, he was a bigger liability than Fujita last year, if only because Fujita just got outmatched physically - Shanle is easily fooled.
