    You are what you were until you show what you can be.

    Pithy but untrue. You are what you are until you are not. What you were is only pertaining to a frame of time in the past. 27th is the past.

    Yet, you are already calling the #1 pick a bust and you won't support him. Don't you think one of the main reasons he was drafted is to address this sieve of a run D?

    Well, since they're not playing there is no present. I don't imagine many DL's changed positions from the end of the season until now.

    It's not like the Cowboys made any eye opening moves on the DL in the off season so it's a Parcells "you are what your record says you are" kind of situation.

    It's a moot point because it counts about as much as power rankings.

    You and Rocky pretend it's Groundhog Day every offseason, as if nothing from "the past" is still part of the current team.

    There should be some improvement with better coach TC and a healthy Oline that keeps the Dline off the field LOL

    There are five teams with worse defensive lines?

    Let me set the record straight. No one knows what Parsons' future holds. At this point, I have no right to call him a bust anymore than anyone else has to call him a boom. I think that is an honest statement. I hold him in no higher or lower regard than any other rookie on this team. As for my support, he'll get it once he's earned it in the regular season. That is my prerogative.

    It's very Zen, except that they are two of the most un-Zen peeps I have ever seen.
    I like contradictions.

    And yet you've called him a straight bust in the past.
    And you dog him more than any other pick consistently.

    But why start off on the negative side with any drafted player, especially the 1st pick? Because they didn't get your guy?

    I didn't like the Charleton pick but I at least waited to see if I might be wrong about him.

    Time doesn't stop just because they are not playing. The present exists. Your need for a ranking in the present is illogical. Just about everything that matters to defense has changed since they finished last season. Parcell was right, the defense was what its record says it was... 27th last season but that defense is no more. Forget about ranking in the present, we'll do that in due time.

    Only thing they have really done that has a chance to make a difference is Urban and they drafted Osa with a 3rd round pick. Thats not a whole lot. We can only hope that Gregory is better with a full offseason and Gallimore makes a jump in his 2nd season.

    Parsons blitzing off the edge and up the middle should help some on passing downs.

    He is an excellent player, but sacks are the cornerstone stat for a DE. You dont get fumbles and loss of yards on pressures. One sack pretty much kills a drive. A pressure just rushes the QB. Huge, huge difference.

    Id say it's fair that we are going to need defensive production from unexpected places.

    Realistically a couple of these new guys are gonna work out, and a good few of them will not.

    We will be better because being worse doesn't seem possible.
