And the veterans dont?
This is how I see it. These guys need playing time to see if they have what it takes. There's a big difference between practice and game and a big difference than preseason and regular-season games.
Let these guys get out there and swim even if they sink in the process because we're in a position where them sinking isn't going to hurt us.
Yes, but Moore played because Cassel was sucking. Garrett would have to decide a starter sucks before he'd play a younger player over them. Now is not the time for that. Now is the time to just see what you've got.
A player like Damien Wilson is not better than Sean Lee, but Wilson needs the reps while Lee needs to have his body protected. It is meaningless at this point to risk Lee and could hasten Wilson's development to play him.
Miles had 124 targets in Roy's first full year in Dallas, compared to Williams' 86. And Demarco Murray had 164 attempts and 35 targets his first full year in the league. Maybe those four guys aren't your best examples.
If you look at just this year alone, we've had Randle lose his position to McFadden, Weeden lose his position to Cassell, Cassell lose his position to Moore, Leary lose his position to Collins, Wilcox/Church lose snaps to Jones, Beasley lose return snaps to Lucky, and Patmon lose his roster spot altogether. Of all the things to complain about, I would think the coaches' unwillingness to bring in competition and to let players earn snaps would be pretty close to the bottom of the list. But, of course, we're Cowboys fans. And in Dallas, something can't be wrong without everything being wrong, and if everything is wrong then the coaches are obviously idiots. Go Cowboys.
Jerry and Stephen decide who's playing, who is he trying to fool?
perfect example, Garrett said Moore might not start this week, a couple of hours later, its announced Moore is starting.
Most likely, because Moore wasn't his guy, Cassell and Weeden were.. Linehan brought Moore here and he's looked better than all of them and per Broaddus, Linehan wanted him starting before they even brought Cassell here.
Jerry took the fall for Garrett a couple weeks back when he said the back-up QB was his fault..
Yea, because the vets have done so well this year.
then I'd quit watching compulsive behaviors that make you unhappy doesn't serve your life
What type of roster has Garrett been building these past 5 years that the best players we have are 4-10 caliber and all the backup players are worse?
Garrett is saying, "we cant play anybody else on the depth chart because our current starters are way better, even though they have lost almost every game this season"
This is the type of logic we are getting from our head coach?.................literally no words at this point
Bloody well right !!!!!! You hit the nail on the head mate !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Most of what he says anymore I just ignore.
What he talks about just does not pass the smell test when you are getting outcoached every week.
Sorry, if he were running practices "the right way" like he loves to say, we might have been able to grab a win or two.
Maybe he needs to start looking at how he and his staff are stacking and executing instead of arrogantly assuming in a passive aggressive way the players aren't doing it.
I prefer to play young guys in meaningless games to let them get experience and to evaluate for next season.
You apparently want to keep playing veterans that have a 4-10 record to show for their efforts this year.
I will let others decide which viewpoint is delusional and which viewpoint is rational.
I think more folks would agree with my positon than yours............maybe we should take a poll?
Im not here for a pissing contest Beast and i have enjoyed a lot of your post
but my complaint is this board is losing football content and thats what it once was noted for
If they earned a roster spot then they earned some playing time.
How in the heck can they earn anything if not given a chance.
This one Garrett is way off base on. So, let's keep a possible player that can develop on the bench, only to be released because he did not develop, so he can go elsewhere and be an all pro.
Guess the coaches like Henderson, Dooley, Brown, Wilson really need replaced if they can't develop a player to earn playing time.
It doesnt take a lot of machismo and oracle sense to make changes from Weed/Cassel/Moore or finally bench/cut Randle after knowing he is getting a suspension after riding him the first 6 games and no repercussions after the one handed goalline lunge.
Collins should have been in from week 1, but Leary was the starter and got the vet nod. injury basically made the decision for Garrett.. Parnell played better than Free this year, but Free basically was regifted the position all season.
McClain was gifted his position the moment he came off suspension. Wilson and Hitchens were actually playing better ball at the time. Witten plays 95% of every snap, and Hardy is getting way too many snaps to maintain effectiveness. You can even make the case to sit Dez when his head isnt in the game (TB, etc). Nope.
I have a hard time believing cutting White, Michael, and Patmon are sending shockwaves through protected elite.
Horrible evaluation all the way around
Its all good bro, we are just having a friendly debate.
Time for Beast to head off to work...............you guys all have a good night.
This is an interesting comment. Care to elaborate?
It is a bad year. People are going to get mad. The board will naturally get negative.
Don't think the absence of the good ol' All-22 recaps haven't been noticed. Where are all the recaps and what not? Ran off by negative posters? Don't be naïve.
Just like how some say the "negative" posters "disappear" when the team wins.
Funny how that all works out.
