    Given the FA the Cowboys have and soon to be FA who likely will get extension like Dak, Zeke and Cooper as well as DLaw who is a FA I don't see Cowboys making a big time DT in FA. those 4 current players come at a cost. Cowboys will have to hit picks in the draft and 2nd tier FA

    I should have said there aren't big guys who are quick that the Cowboys actually passed on, because they don't exist.

    Also Mebane is lighter than Woods, Poe has 6 sacks in his last 61 games and got so fat they put bonuses in his contract to lose weight, Reader has 4 sacks and 10 TFL in 46 career games. Goldman is only 320. Basically, your point is that the Cowboys didn't sign Wilfork?

    Wrong.

    The excessive stunting that most of the sports world has highlighted as the biggest problem in the Cowboys/Rams playoff game is a Marinelli calling card.

    Kris took the blame already for how the defense played.....stop making excuses for him. He got out coached and the defense was why we lost.

    Wrong again.

    The biggest issue with the defense was the DLine getting out schemed.

    The DL scheme is Marinelli's.

    Dude if I was wrong I would not care; but if it gets you off continue. According to Kris himself he was at fault and based on what he did in Seattle I agree. He was the on DC in the playoffs that stuck to what he normally does against the Rams and took nothing from the Bears or what the rest of the NFL did against the Rams in the month of December. Kris does what he does and he is not going to change.

    if he does, the 1 Tech doesnt have to be a 1 tech, just be mobile enough for the first 3 steps
    and stop the dang gone run

    Brown would be perfect fit here but too pricey for us. Shelton on the other hand is a big boy that I wouldn’t mind taking a flyer on. I imagine Crawford Shelton woods tank on obv run downs would clog things up and do wonders for lve and Smith.

    The best fat boy is Snacks Harrison. The Colts got him for a 4th and about the same salary as Tyrone Crawford.

    Poe gave Fred/Martin fits but that's been a couple of years. Getting too big is always a risk with those mega sized linemen.

    The NFL weight listings are far from accurate. I often take note when players tell their weight in interviews and for linemen the roster listings are often as much as 20 pounds off.

    Fans obsess about getting a giant sized DT but the zone running scheme made many of those types obsolete. If they can't move quickly enough they'll block off their own guys from pursuit against the zone run scheme.

    I was watching the 92 season NFC championship game recently and noticed NT Ted Washington. That guy was really really fat (Listed at 375). He was good against the Cowboys straight ahead power run game but you won't see guys like that anymore.

    What about red bryant? He was listed at 320-325. I agree that you don't necessarily need a 330+ defensive tackle but you do need a least one who is good at anchoring against the run , and can stack double teams . rod doesn't seem to value those abilities.Again , your talking about a guy who thought nick hayden was a quality dt

    honestly, I can't believe this silly debate over defensive tackles is still on going. The rams game should have been The definitive nail in the coffin.how much more evidence is needed?how many more times are we. Going to have to watch the cowboys lose a important game because they can't stop The run?The cowboys have a few solid defensive tackles but , no I don't think they are nfl starter quality. Dallas should upgrade the dt position .rod's views on evaluating d-line talent are fundamentally flawed. If marinelli returns next season , it should be in a role similar to Monte Kiffin's before he left. Keep Rod from having any real influence on the defense.
    Christ . enough already:angry:

    I think snacks Harrison played well against Frederick and Martin when he was with the Giants.

    I'm with you jazz, I want to see some big mean run stopping DTs for a change, and Marinelli is never going to do it.
    Make Richard the DC!

    We should trade a token pick for Gerard McCoy whose rumoured to be getting cut. He’s a good fit for us and on a contract that suits is.
