    He started out as a LG in the NFL.

    Well well well. Our O-Line could have just improved.

    Dallas needs to get their best 5 on the field.


    The way I heard Jerry Jones talk this morning it didn’t sound like he was in any hurry to get Steele off the field but he admitted they usually give guys their job back when they return from injury and made a comment that both could be on the field.

    So we’ll see.

    IMO he was better as a guard.

    If he doesn't play LG on the 31st I'm going to blow dandelions in to my neighbors yards. :mad:

    I thought his best year was at Tackle.

    He was never that impressive at guard and we were always better with Ron Leary in the lineup at guard imo.

    Im just not impressed with Connor Williams. I know he gets the job done but that guy is so finesse and gets bullied at times.

    Connor had 3 flags against Philly, and 4 against NE. At this point I'd rather have anyone on the line at LG. He's getting manhandled.

    You guys are quick to turn on our own players. La’el is an all pro level RT. Steele did his job now it’s time to go sit down.

    Did Collins do ‘his job’ these past 5 weeks? Well? And why not? This should be good, real good.

    What exactly was Collins doing these past 5 weeks? Collins turned on the team and the fans and you are rolling out the red carpet for his triumphant return.

    Collins starts and if people think he doesn’t their eyes will hopefully tell them the truth on the 31st.

    What are you getting at? These aren't the gotcha questions you seem to think they are. They are really dumb, IMO. Your opinion of Collins is very negative, you've made that obvious but it is a problem in only one place... in your head. Collins will be welcomed back to his starting RT position and I hope it ticks you off.

    What I’m loving about Steele is he’s got some nasty that we’ve seen throughout the years from a lot of our RT’s. Eric Williams, Colombo, etc

    I know your response was not directed toward me but if you don’t think his 5 game suspension matters, I think that’s a pretty naive idea.

    yeh, Cowboys envisioned Lael Collins as an OG entering the NFL.

    - Reportedly they thought he had shorter than preferred arm length for an OT, and plugged him in at LG ..over incumbent Ron Leary.
    He was considered to have first round ability coming out of LSU, but everyone well knows very unfortunate situation that saw him
    totally out of the draft.

    - Cowboys actually drafted Chaz Green in the 3rd rd. to be the heir apparent to vet Doug Free.
    But Green had major durability issues that stunted his development considerably and apparently Free totally surprised the Cowboys
    by suddenly retiring.

    - That left the club forced to move Collins over to RT, .and he's been there since, while the likes of Jonathan Cooper, Connor Williams have
    tried to plug the LG role. The saga still continues here.
