    Yep...........this is the problem with Jerry. He doestn catch on or do things quick enough. And he goes overboard on certain things. i.e. build throught the draft, only use FA for bargains, DT, safety not important positions, ect....ect....

    You are looking at it wrong. The Rams are clearly better in three areas: 1) Front office big advantage there. 2) Head coach they have a huge advantage. 3) QB they have a sizable advantage. Forget about comparing rosters, this is where seasons are determined.

    Speaking of Goff, What’s also impressive is the talent they shed to get to the top. Just a couple years ago they made the SB with the roster of

    Jared Goff
    Todd Gurley
    Brandin Cooks
    Dante Fowler
    Roger Saffold
    Ndamukong Suh
    Marcus Peters
    Michael Brockers
    Aqib Talib

    they dumped all those pro bowlers/all pros in just 3 years and then got better. No one else would have survived a purge like that

    Lol. Sure. That’s why he hadn’t won a playoff game for 12 years. Give Dak McVay. And the best defense in football I guarantee you he wins that game. Either way. Stafford didn’t win that game. Donald did.

    Or just trade him for Zeke like we should have done in the first place.

    Cowboys aren't there yet? When will they be? The "core" they drafted is now getting older. So by the time they "are there", you are going to have Martin outside his prime, who knows with Tyron Smith, Lawrence will be older, etc.

    That's the problem with this whole avoid FA and just draft............ by the time you think you filled your holes, you don't realize the ones you thought you filled 5-6 years ago are now potentially holes again.

    If you are asking me its after this season when you can get Zeke off the books. Now the salary cap is clean of all bad contracts and we have another year to see these rookies and 2nd year guys bloom or not. Thats where the real window starts. As long as some of these young ones continue to pan out.

    But you are correct. We are still going to have to replace Smith next year so the Oline rebuild is still in progress.

    If 49ers dB holds onto int Rams don't get to superbowl and the reason would've been a Stafford special.

    As long as the Cowboys don't employ a fully empowered GM, they'll struggle matching up with elite teams. Getting into the playoffs vs. teams with elite personnel is folly. We routinely have too many holes to be competitive with the best of them.

    Of course, our FO has long been in strict denial of that. Empowering Will McClay for total talent acquisition, including vet FAs might be a good 1st step. Eliminating Stephen from contract negotiations should prove especially helpful, as well.

    There is one small thing Stafford has now done that Dak will never be able to do..........

    I will even go a step further - put Dak on that Rams team last season and they don't win the super bowl. They might not even make it to the NFCCG.

    Everyone from players, coaches, media, to outside fans knew Stafford was a legit quarterback. Dude was in one of the worst situations one could possibly have.

    Only a few Dak homers can't see it. Sad actually

    No, thats not the point at all. It has nothing to do with money b/c every NFL team has money they have to spend on players. The point in comparing the Rams and Cowboys is that level of activity in the front office. The Rams are not satisfied with just making the playoffs. They continually go out in free agency and get what they need. You certainly can't argue they built last years super bowl like Dallas by re-signing and drafting. The fact is that they have made some ballsy moves and have been one of the most aggressive front offices in the league wheeling and dealing.

    Every team has to use the draft for the bulk of their players because no team can afford free agents at every position. But when a team gets close, the way to get over the hump is free agency - or trades. It only takes a few players to get over the top, if they are truly impact players. The Cowboys of the 1990s got over to the top when they signed acquired Haley and Deion.

    2 of those 3 players are huge and the 3rd is pretty good as well. It's not like you can stay under the cap with 10 "big contract" FA signings so I'm confused unless the premise is to show the Rams indeed bought a SB. Also, 2 of those 3 mid year signings were also huge for the post season run.
