    Henry didn’t get the opportunity early on his career.

    once again your comment is laughable.

    Tony Dorsett was the greatest rookie in Cowboys history. He was the only player needed to give the Cowboys a Super Bowl win. Cowboys made and blockbuster trade to get him, won rookie of the year and he lived up to the hype winning the Super Bowl in the same stadium and city he won a NCAA College Football Championship.

    Zack would be my choice. He's going to make first ballot at a position where it rarely happens (when he gets enshrined he'll be the 3rd interior o lineman in a 4 decade span to make first ballot). That's truly "generational talent"

    Love Parsons but the whole "generational talent' tag gets thrown around too much. Just in the last 10 years on defense alone just off my head youve had guys like JJ watt, Aaron Donald, Luke kuechly, and von Miller who've basically stepped on the field and been DPOTY talent. All of them franchise changing players and all future hall of famers

    Don't get me wrong they don't grow on trees but being the best in your class or 2 doesn't necessarily mean "this is a godly thing we'll maybe never see again"

    It’s not 1600. It’s more like 490. Which goes back to the original point about Henry vs Zeke in Dak’s rookie year ya donut.

    Henry was nothing in this league until Demarco Murray retired.

    Yeah, I acknowledged this in another post I quoted you on. Here's what I said:

    In Emmitt's defense, he was pretty much in the same situation Zeke is in now. He was in an offense that wasn't designed to fit him, with a pass-happy OC that didn't know how to use the running game.

    You said Henry had a bad first couple years. He didnt. The old coaching staff just didnt feature him. He did well, just didnt get the touches.

    Dont care about your original point. NOthing to do with me. YOur point that Henry was bad his first few years is nothing but football dumb nonsense. Like most of your points.

    But to YOUR point...........how many yards and TD's do you think Henry would have gotten behind the Dallas line in 2016 with 350 carries? It would have been amazing.

    Parsons is in a category all his own.

    Good point, but if Parsons plays well in the playoffs and gets to the SB and we win it all this year , then we can compare notes at the end of it !
    Lets pray it happens, good to discuss this after !

    I've said this before. As a boy, I remember at the bus stop praying that the Cowboys would draft Tony Dorsett to help Roger Staubach get another Super Bowl. When the Cowboys pulled off that big trade for Tony Dorsett, it scared me to death (Mother said that God answers prays), and made me pray for better more worth while needs and wants. But, God had that 1977 Super Bowl in my hometown of New Orleans. So both of Roger Staubach's/Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl wins was in New Orleans, LA...[​IMG]

    Honestly, I can't recall Bob Lilly's rookie year, but my guess is he was fantastic.
