    No... it really doesn't.

    I see an offensive line in Dallas that has some potential for doing good things.

    Links on where I said last year's offensive line was "fine"?

    Bueller?

    As a side note, send me an email and I'll teach you how to do the "Quote" thingy.

    I'm all for upgrading the line, but can we at least trade for a guy who can pass a physical? We've got plenty of damaged linemen already.

    I prefer we go all in for Waters rather than make a move like this. At least Waters has had a very productive career and is healthy at the moment.

    It is kind of surprising he went to Denver....he is a big, heavy footed lineman that doesn't fit their scheme.

    They have Beadles, Ramirez and Vasquez starting at G, C, G, with Davis, Lilja and Cooper behind them, with Phillip Blake, Steve Vallos (journeyman vet) and Quentin Saulsberry. Of course they have JD Walton too, who is hurt and I think out for a while. THey have Dan Koppen and Justin Boren on IR also. A lot of interior linemen, so it is very likely a couple of these guys will be available in a week or so when the first cutdown comes.

    I don't think they run the Zone Blocking Scheme anymore.

    I liked Phillip Blake in the 2012 draft (4th round). It appears that he missed most of last season on IR with a broken thumb.

    I'm the 'leave no stone unturned' type, especially when it comes to the offensive line, and area where we have clearly struggled.

    This guy was available for a bag of chips and I think we should have ponied up.

    Even if there is some type of issue, they weren't even barbecued chips!

    This argument was more interesting before the first trade for Moffit was voided when he didn't pass his physical.

    I'm all for turning over some stones, but I'm also ok with not turning them all over. Also, we're talking about, at best, a minor upgrade at RG here with any of the sorts of players likely to be available from here on out. Most likely, it'd end up being a minor downgrade. If we add one to the roster at the cost of a player or pick, it needs to be somebody with some talent. Otherwise, I'd much prefer we pickup and plug in bodies available on the street in the hopes we find a gem and then just get busy filling one interior OL spot after roster cutdowns with the best available fit we can come to terms with.

    Wasn't Moffitt one of those "cant miss" mid round guys that Jerry was a fool for not drafting?

    I thought he was more one of those cagey vets Jerry was a fool for not trading for, twice.

    Moffit is from some accounts a head case. In addition to not being all that good. Happy to pass on him.

    the problem with some people who think they have a sense of humor is that they don't.

    Not likely. He might have been a pet cat but that's all.

    As do I. If they stay healthy they can be a solid unit.

    Holy cow, an OL that you don't think would be an upgrade? Didn't think that was possible.

    Yeah, I was a pretty big Blake fan myself...would be nice to see him shake loose. I'd take a chance on him.
