    First off can you write comments without a spacer line in between EVERY line? Next you kept using the word we. Who is the we? We as in fans or we as in the Cowboys? If it's we as in fans, WE have no say in it. If it's we as in the Cowboys when did the Cowboys hire you and at what position? It's the Cowboys call for all terms of player contracts. We as fans can make up all sorts of conditions to player contracts but first getting professional GM's to offer them and getting players to accept them are two things aren't going to happen.

    Yes we all have opinions about what should be done about Prescott but at the end of the day, we have no say in it and to repeatedly launch multiple Prescott threads every day to rehash the same things over and over and over again is pointless.

    That is a crock of bull. Nobody, and I mean nobody will believe that if Brady had asked for or demanded contracts that paid him closer to what he had accomplished that Belicheat would have got rid of him in some way because his demands were higher that what you say Belicheat has for max per position? Let me guess, you and Belicheat have had long conversations and that during one he told you about his position pay scale.

    All coaches or on most teams GM's have a range that they will pay for positions but none are written in stone because of the talent some players have and what it will cost to sign them. But is not just oh well that's more than the position scale amount so that player is gone.

    No, I said we have not drafted well on D thus my mentioning execution.

    Building through the draft is an excellent plan IMO.

    Jimmy Johnson had full control of the whole process. Signing coaching and releasing players. If you didnt do your job he would cut you in a heartbeat.

    If JJ would ever give up again that kind of control we would be finally competitive again. But with this idiot and his son thinking they know we wont be sniffing a ring for another 25 years....

    It was big news at the time. Brady and Belly were fighting. Belly tried to trade him, Kraft shut it down. Right after that, Belly dumped Garrop for a 2nd, even though the entire NFL knew he was worth a lot more. It was a very strange sequence of events.

    Just looked it up. Kraft demanded that Belly trade Garrop before the Nov 1st deadline. Interesting.

    I googled it 5 different ways to find anything about belicheat wanting to trade Brady and the closest thing that came up was when John Lynch was trading for Garoppolo he said he just had to ask and asked about getting Brady and Lynch said belicheat just laughed at him.

    Yeah, I've noticed that. There aren't always available articles about certain items, especially one that would cast the golden boy in a tainted light. The Pats are "protected", and Brady was the face of the NFL, so it was apparently squushed. Wouldn't be the first time.

    You're usually pretty accurate on stuff but I think this time you're coming across as a conspiracy theory guy. belicheat may be able to bully the local media but if you think you heard something about this that means media outside the Boston area ran it and belicheat isn't that big of a God to squash media all across the country. That means if some sportswriter ran a story, and that would have been huge news, then belicheat wouldn't have been able to squash every article all across the country. Do you really think that sportswriters in NY, Miami and Buffalo would be bullied into killing articles about that?

    I'm going to disagree and disagree by a lot. Around the league and in the media the Cowboys roster is easily considered a top 8-10 if not higher roster.

    Now that we have a competent HC, you will notice a difference.

    For example, just changing the kicker last year would have netting the Cowboys at least 2 more wins.

    Just think if they had average special teams, another W or 2. Who could ever forget the Cobb fair catch?

    I'm just asking. If you heard something about it then belicheat couldn't have squashed everything so then you, me anyone should be able to find an article stating this then shouldn't we? Are you saying that belicheat is so powerful that hen can squash articles he may not like anywhere in the country?
