Problem with Mayock is he says one thing, ranks another. He spent the entire build up to the 2015 draft stating Winston couldn't be trusted on or off the field, yet ranked him the #2 QB.

There is a difference between being able to trust him and him being the second best QB.

Any rumours out there about Oakland matching or walking away?

Immediately after signing him Charean Williams tweeted that they were expected to match and I think it was Sturm that claimed that it was rumored that they will match. But nothing is out there officially.

Oh, your future knowledge. Amazing. I'm guessing this only applies to qb's at #4, any other position does not apply.

You're right, we are SB contenders, What was I thinking. We are better than Carolina, Seattle, Arizona, Green Bay, Minnesota in the NFC. Other teams won't draft well, but we will hit on every one of our picks.

Things happen. Injuries happen. You conviently forget we were 12-4 just a year ago.

And 8-8 the year before.

And 8-8 the year before.

And 8-8 the year before.

And 6-10 the year before.

Funny nobody ever brings up the 8-8 seasons.

But that one magical 12-4. It has GOT to be the standard, not the outlier.

The 12-4 is significant because if you were paying attention a major change in how the franchise is being run changed a year or 2 before then. I believe the 12-4 was a result of that. Last year the injuries took its toll however they totally misjudged the backup QB position which probably cost us a playoff spot.

The franchise was run exactly the same way.

The 12-4 was a by-product, almost by accident, from how things were done before.

The run game took the pressure off of Romo. He could breathe.

Before that, 8-8 was all Romo. All Romo. All day. We go how Tony goes.

There were a game or two per year where something happened and it resulted in an L.

Now it seems we are looking to go back to that.

Just as AmberBeer completely forgets Romo having a career year playing 16 games, and Murray having a career year.

I heard the same thing about Demarcus Ware................at 33 he was dominating the Panthers in the SB..............not all players over 30 **** Adam.

Ware's not being overpaid because he was productive several years ago, though. He's being paid commensurate with his current level of production, which is 6-10 sacks per season in less than a full-time role. He also just took another pay cut.

You don't pay players for previous production, whether they are young or old. You pay them for what you think they will do during the contract. So it doesn't matter whether a 24-year-old player like Mayowa has 0 career sacks or 2 career sacks or 10 career sacks -- you pay him for what you think he's going to do at age 24, 25 and 26. Period. Same with older players. The Broncos are paying Ware for what he is doing at ages 32, 33 and 34, not what he did in Dallas at ages 26-29 or whatever.

No the franchise is not being run the same way. Stephen's opinion rules most of the time. And he listens to his personnel people. It was Stephen who nixed the Manziel pick. Now Jerry still butts in like the Hardy signing and he needs to stop. The fact that the team has not wasted money on high priced FA's tells me Stephen is still in control. The coaches want young players led by a few veterans in key positions. That's whats going on here. Also, you can have all the talent in the world ala the Eagles Dream Team, but if you don't have a strong locker room, you're going nowhere. Just like they did. The RKG philosophy will work given time and Jerry butting out.

What? That's literally brought up anytime someone says anything about 12-4 season

You don't have a thing, a single example of tangible proof, that Stephen Jones has the kind of authority you are suggesting.

Zero.

It is all part of the mystery the organization wants you to believe in, per their wishes.

There is a reason why their organizational structure is left vague.

Jerry Jones loves that his fan base is how he likes his head coaches: "Comfortable with ambiguity."

I will not deny Stephen Jones is stepping forward more than the past. In small slight ways. As Jerry Jones gets older, he loosens up more. Especially when his is distracted by a stadium project or new team facility.

But that was not why we went 12-4 a year ago.

But for 2014, he had a career year. For some here, I guess a terrible 1,800 yds.

Just terrible. Look what he did in Philadelphia!

And in the same breath, anyone can run behind this line.

It is just mind boggling.

He's gone now. But unless we decide to get another back to replicate the mindset, we are destined to be .500.

You must not have paid attention. The change was major.
