    lets say Dallas end up with 5 or 6 wins

    I think Jerry has pretty much laid the ground work

    http://www.***BANNED-URL***/sports/...-might-be-too-late-to-save-cowboys-season.ece

    The 2-3 Cowboys could get Bryant back for their next game, Oct. 25 against the New York Giants. Romo won't return until at least Nov. 22 against the Miami Dolphins.

    those are big ifs an buts

    like Don Meredith once said, "If ifs and buts were candy and nuts, we'd all have a merry Christmas

    myself I would sit them both out for the season let the really heal ESP DEZ

    go with Cassell and whom ever at WR


    last year teams with

    5 wins Chicago picked 7 th
    6 wins Atlanta picked 8 th
    6 wins Giants picked 9 th
    6 win Rams the picked 10

    it would put us in the range of getting some good players

    I am not condoning this just a hypothetical question

    Dallas possible mocks with possible trades - I am no expert on the trades so take this tongue in cheek

    plus I do not know how many picks we have to trade

    What would you do ?

    we got two weeks to discuss this so be civil

    pick it apart or help it out some

    based on CBS

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/prospectrankings/2016/all


    three scenarios

    1 Jared Goff, QB, California - trade up to get him
    2 Denontae Book,.RB, Utah
    3 Ricky Seals-Jones, WR, Texas A&M or Leonte Carroo, WR, Rutgers
    4 Cyrus Jones. CB, Ala
    5 Kevin Byrd, S, Middle Tennessee

    1 Jalen Ramsey, S/CB, Florida State - Trade up to get him
    2 Christian Hackenberg, QB, Penn State - Trade up if needed
    3 Kenneth Dixon, RB, Louisiana Tech or Kenyan Drake, RB, Ala
    4 Mekale McKay, WR, Cincinati
    5 Kevin Byrd, S, Middle Tennessee

    1 Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State
    2 Hunter Henry, TE, Ark or Vonn Bell, S, Ohio St
    3 Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State
    4 Mekale McKay, WR, Cincinati
    5 Kevin Byrd, S, Middle Tennessee

    Good grief people the Cowboys aren't tanking. The only way they'll shut down Romo is if they're 2-7 and the NFC East title is out of reach. Considering how the schedule softens up I highly, highly doubt we'll be riding a seven game losing streak when Tony returns.

    We lost to two undefeated football teams in Atlanta and New England. The best team we face record wise until we get our quarterback back is the Giants. With the benching of Weeden, getting Gregory and Dez back soon, I cannot see a scenario where the Cowboys tank the season and shut down their stars.

    Can't think beyond this week, even though it's a bye. Pretty exciting player changes & additions going on and we have a good chance to win the division if we play up to our potential in NY next week.

    No way. This is a year-to-year league. Romo and Witten have limited opportunities left, so you have to take advantage of EVERY chance you have.

    Next year will bring more injuries. Players have to be re-signed. Hardy may be gone. McClain is iffy. Carr and Claiborne will need to be replaced potentially. Etc.

    The NFL is a now league.

    And drafted QBs almost ALWAYS bust.

    this has nothing to do with tanking

    tell me this not a possibility - we also lost to WINLESS TEAM SAINTS

    so you take a chance on ruining maybe one of the best WR'S career it took J Jones sat out the whole year

    or Romo's

    just because you want wins this year

    You damn right I want wins this season. The Cowboys aren't gonna ruin Dez's career. They'll bring him back when he's 100 percent healthy and not a moment too soon. Garrett has been openly blunt about that. They won't rush Dez back.

    ok sure what if that not until next year until he's healthy

    read what Julio Jones said about the injury

    http://www.***BANNED-URL***/sports/...injury-recovery-you-don-t-want-to-rush-it.ece

    "With Dez, he's just going to have to take time and get healed up properly because you can rush these things," Jones said. "Because of the competitor that he is, you don't want to rush it and then it sets you back. If you come back too early, then it can put you back again behind. So my thing to Dez is to just get fully healthy and then you can go out there and help your teammates."

    Jones, 26, had his first foot surgery following the 2011 scouting combine. He then fractured the same foot again in 2013, bending the screw that was inserted during the first operation. After the second procedure, which included a larger screw and a bone graft, Jones said he was required to stay off his feet for two months

    Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State---This would be a good draft choice for the Cowboys

    They are healthy, they should play. Simple as that. Too early in the season still. I don't sit anyone, hoping next year all stars align, they draft good players and win. Win now.

    Good luck sitting a competitive player. Everyone thinks weeden chooses to play like crap and he was pissed when he found out he wasnt playing.

    If the team is 2-7 they might as well sit out. The Cowboys aren't going to be undefeated when they return. If they can win a couple of games before then and the division is still up for grabs, you do everything you can to win it.

    Cowboys added three first round talents last season picking 27th. Where you draft isn't nearly as important as who you draft.

    This HOT TAKE is getting old pretty fast.

    We are going to try to win a Super Bowl THIS YEAR. Even if we go winless until Romo comes back, "You play. To win. The ballgame." Period.

    I know the above idea isn't a popular opinion here, but I agree with you.
