    We've needed a DT the past 3 seasons and we keep using bandaids

    Dak has shown he's capable, even with a O-line as bad as this years. This team has problems bigger than Dak.

    This has to be the priority number one. Even Martin's been abused few times this year by someone not named Donald.

    I never saw that before this year. He is still one of the best, but he is getting older and starting his decline.

    Don’t draft longhorns. Shocker I know. They are weak and limp wristed cucks.

    No sir. Most important position on the field. He's never been good enough to elevate the team and now he's completely gone in the toilet. Until you fix that, nothing else matters.

    It's actually been happening for a while now. I get attacked for saying it. Glad to know someone else is honest enough to admit he isn't what he once was. But keep it on the down low. Don't want to hurt his trade value.

    Anyone who says our OL is better than 20th at best is delusional. We suck. Holding penalties count. Tyron is a shell of himself. Williams is beyond words. Biadasz is weak. Collins is bad and only playing due to his rep. Even Zack missed a stunt today. It's getting contagious.

    I've seen him get beat before. All OL get beat at times. Even the great ones but this year, I've actually seen him get abused where he is getting pushed around easily more often.

    Then they should protect the "most important position on the field" by putting a better O-line in front of him. Ignoring a position group won't do anything but keep your qb hurt or rushing thru reads or bailing out the pocket... know matter who that may be. Ask Andrew Luck.

    Agree that the OL has to be fixed but you said the QB wasn't the highest priority. Simply saying that it will not fix anything if your QB can't make plays.

    Or couldn’t find them because he was too busy panicking over a phantom pass rush.

    He's not the highest priority, having a good all around team is. We can't win being the highest penalized team in the NFL, or not utilizing two top rb's, etc.

    I'm not excusing Dak, but thinking he is the biggest problem means you're not seeing the big picture.

    Steele at RT, Collins to LG, the line is fixed. Farniok will be the backup center next year, I think McGovern has one more year, maybe Josh Ball can be swing tackle. Alarcon might be ready to push for a spot. I think we will take an OL in top three rounds and maybe another around the 5th. We need at least one starting level LB since Vander Esch is likely gone. We can hope the kid from LSU can come back from the ACL but we need LBs. Gotta decide what they are gonna do with Gregory and I think Armstrong is also a FA. All meat and potatoes draft.

    I would agree....But Steele isn't the answer either. I thought @ some point we would move Mcgovern into RG and move Martin to RT. Hate to say it....but Martin is getting beat down playing inside.....his end is getting near.

    Very easy to defend a one dimensional team like the Cowboys became post Denver

    We disagree. If you are going to advance in the playoffs, your chances largely depend on your QB being one of the better QB's in the league. Everything else is window dressing.

    OL is a priority because the offense has to have a good to great running game to win. Draft a run blocker or two. Maybe even snag a RB. Get a new OC that will run the ball and play the hot RB no matter what.
