I believe you were down on LVE last year. It takes a little time for some players.
I think it's more about the front office and coaching staff. I don't remember too many that were fond of the pick to begin with myself included.
Jesus christ this is such a stupid statement...absolutely as stupid as stuff gets on here. The stuff you guys say man...Dude was always a project from the moment we drafted him, not like he was a top 5 pick or something man.
It was so blatantly obvious to everyone except Marinelli to take one of those stud safeties.
Didn't Hill have a third or fourth round grade on him?
He was all over the charts due to his small school status and being raw as a player.
Was I? Tell me more.
Yes. I would say that with the way it looks right now the Cowboys have the worst group in the division.
Hopefully that changes. It should. Will McClay is a draft guru.
Ok? The coach shut him down due to the finger injury.
It's straight from Bill O'Brien.
Now if you want to debate if it was the finger or his talent, go ahead. But he was the penciled in starter so I believe they were erring on caution with his health.
Interesting we're spending soooo much time on 2nd round pick who inactive the FIRST GAME of the season. Not sure the motivation here but let's talk about Pollard also, 3rd round pick who was damn near ready to start before Zeke returned. See how that works......
Yet you have a couple of posters jumping every thread yelling bust or non-factor for a kid ONE game into the season.....amazing coz these are what we like to think are respectable posters.
Didn't two 1st round picks get injured on day 1: Oak Safety Abram (who was drafted with the pick we gave up for Cooper) and an Atl OL.
I thought I read where neither of those two players were doing well when out there.
I saw 1st round NYG CB Baker get toasted. I saw 1st round NYG QB Jones play and do nothing, other than fumble. I saw NYG 1st round DL Lawrence (?) do squat.
That's true for getting serviceable players but, regardless of his standing right now, Hill has a ton of upside. Guys who reach Hill's potential don't generally become free agents, so you have to draft them.
Yea, there's a huge difference between being active and being...good.
There was a lot of poor football being played this week, and the young players, as is the case every year, contribute to that.
Wella, whatever you do, do not label me respectable. That's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much to live up to!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They did, there was a big faction on the message boards back then who said it and were later pushing for Steve Walsh.
I know, it's crazy to think Dallas wanted to start their best players and have a veteran presence against a division rival. Who in their right mind would sit a rookie their fist game of the season against a division foe? Those silly Jones boys. If they were smart like our forum residents here they would have drafted Juan Thornhill a free safety, even though we already have a second year free safety in Woods who's coming off a great game where he had 9 tackles an a forced fumble. Gotta love the talent evaluators on the CZ forum.
What does it matter what the 1st round picks did? If they weren't on the board when Dallas was drafting, how can you include them in the comparison?
Juan Thornhill started and played well.
TJ Watt is a stud.
These are hindsight suggestions either, many of us were saying this while the team was on the clock with their selections.
Give credit when due but hold people accountable for mistakes,
They nailed the LVE pick, but they absolutely blew the Taco one, and T.Hill looks like another miss.
I mean I like Trysten Hill more than most but I still would have drafted Thornhill lol
You would think he would be a tougher player growing up with a girl’s name.
Me too. I liked him in the 4th round.
