Will we ever have a dominant Oline again?

    Yeah, I hope they do pick up a solid player in FA, although I wanted a FA center last year and left disappointed.

    I also agree that one will definitely come in the first 3 rounds of the draft, but you won't see a draft of OL like some purpose, that would probably end up like the great CB draft of 2000. Its just foolish to make a run like that on one position group in the draft, your just destined for failure.

    You've just proven you know nothing about football. The Giants AND Packers had a mediocre line?! What are you smoking? They were both quality lines that protected their passers with excellence. They were FAR superior lines than the Cowboys have right now. How do you think runners run & passer pass? Blocking!

    Last time we won Super Bowls, it was because we had one of the most dominant lines in the NFL. I would rather have mediocrity at running back, & a line that blows open huge holes. O-lines can make average backs great. We can't continue to have a line like a sieve, where Romo is running for his life all game long.

    Nothing will change until old man Jerrah bites the big one.

    Yes, true.

    And they have invested in their OL as well.

    I'd add NE as well. I think they can pass and run block well. They generally keep Brady upright. And they have a good running game this year, imo.

    A really good O line can make mediocre RBs look good; can make journeyman QB s look good; can cover up for mediocre WRs.


    A really good O line would make this team a true SB contender.

    I got news for you the NFL isn't the same as it was in the 90's. it's changed big time. No longer a running league it's a passing league. Teams hardly even win it anymore. The Giants offensive line wasn't good last season especially in the playoffs. They got Eli killed in the NFC Championship Game, but because of great defense, terrific play by Manning, and a couple of knuckle headed plays by the 49ers they were able to prevail. In 2010 Aaron Rodgers was one of the most hit and sacked quarterbacks in all football yet and still they won the Super Bowl because Rodgers played phenomal in the postseason. Oh and one last time both the Giants and Packers were deadlast in rushing. They won because they got critical stops and terrific performances by their quarterbacks.

    Not if we keep waiting until there is 1 second left on the play clock to snap the ball. If we keep that up, we will never have a good OL.

    Relax. Jerry has a plan. Subject Romo to a pounding for several seasons, and Tony will be happy to take a pay cut in order to acquire a top notch linemen in FA.

    There is no dominant line in the entire NFL. A line like the 90's Cowboys will never happen again.
