    Dallas Morning News Cowboys beat writer JJT has generously accepted our request to respond to questions from CowboysZone. Please post your questions and he will respond to 15 of the questions posted.

    Also, questions from other boards are welcome. Just post them in the thread or PM me.

    As some of you know, he does indeed read this board, although he hasn't revealed it to the Zone membership. But, he has offered two gold level seats to a Texas Rangers baseball game to the member who figures it out. So for our members who want to see a free baseball game, good luck. :)

    What is JJTs member name here on Dallascowboyszone.com?:D

    I dont think he will answer that one. :D

    Guess I missed the last part of your post...oops.

    How about this for a question: Does he post on the board or only read?

    Have you had a chance to watch Drew Henson perform in NFLE? What do you think about his progress and his chances of winning the #2 spot behind Drew Bledsoe? Thank you.

    Mr. Taylor, you have a good job, so I've always wondered why you feel it necessary to name drop in an effort to get credibility. The job has cache. Why must you always try to overstate it?

    Compare and contrast Bill Parcells with other Cowboys head coaches on the subject of media access to the team and staff.

    And we want the whole story.

    When will TO and Bledsoe start working on patterns and timing, if they haven't already? My biggest concern is not TO and BP not getting along....it's Bledsoe skipping balls off the turf and pissing TO off.

    My guess for JJTs username would be...........

    Q. What does he honestly feel about DMN's "plus" service to PAY to read DMN's Cowboys coverage online.

    Q. Why isn't there a "beat reporter" who has any real info regarding the Cowboys? It seems you guys were spoiled from years of Jerry then people like Switzer and Campo... never having to dig for a story as it presented itself in a gift-wrapped package?

    If Bledsoe goes down early in the season, do you think either Romo or Henson are capable of filling in and leading the team to a winning record? Also, how do you see T.O. handling this situation if it happens?

    Kiper is reporting TO is missing many "voluntary workouts", any idea on how many he has missed and how is Parcells taking it?


    As for my guess AdamJT13?

    Come on, every knows his Stepen Jones :D

    Seriously though, no way JJT even approaches AdamJT13 in the accuracy of his reports or analysis on Players or Cap.

    I doubt it is any regular poster, much less AdamJT13. JJT is probably a lurker-type.

    I think it might be fiveandcounting (sorry, man, if it's not) because of this thread.

    http://dallascowboyszone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=53209

    The original title was:
    "Cowboys lose safety to Saints"

    [SIZE=-1]02:35 PM CDT on Monday, April 10, 2006[/SIZE]

    Then a couple of guys posted on how this title was wrong because we hadn't lost him yet and we still have a week to match....

    [SIZE=-1]Then it was then changed to:[/SIZE]

    "Cowboys could lose safety to Saints"

    [SIZE=-1]03:09 PM CDT on Monday, April 10, 2006[/SIZE]

    This made me think, Wow,JJT is reading the thread...

    [SIZE=-1]Then...[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]At 03:35 fiveandcounting posted this in reply to my post.[/SIZE]

    What's the take so far on Bill Parcells tenure? Has he been worth the money? Is the organization changed to the point where they can now be regarded as team on the cusp of challenging for a spot in January on a regular basis or will this be 97-02 Cowboys when he leaves?

    JJT - Do you think I am sexy?

    On a serious note.

    During your days of covering the cowboys who is the one player who could have been the most arrogant, because of talent or status, yet was the most down to earth or humble?
    Mostly just talking about your interactions with them, not their on the field persona.

    Thanks
