    I'm not completely certain "this is all his fault", but he can definitely go the way of the Ronin after this year.

    lol - this is actually pretty funny because I AM the one who is handling it when the team screwed up. You're the one having a melodramatic fit over it and calling it a monumental blunder. Seems someone never told you. lol

    Drafting Jamarcus Russell with the #1 overall pick was a monumental blunder. This? Not so much.

    And yes, I'm minimizing it, the same way I minimize an individual dropped pass in a game. That pass doesn't tell the story of the game or the player, it just says that one individual moment was a failure. In the same way, an individual failed draft pick does not tell the story of the Cowboys draft efforts.

    Perspective matters my friend. And, you really are being hypocritical if you can't even acknowledge that perfection is not possible.

    It's dumb that they couldn't get a pick for him and they couldn't give him a trial against the Dolphins after he appeared to have a solid preseason. Either the preseason was a fluke and he's a terrible player, or he has such an awful character that the staff didn't wanna deal with him. Either way, releasing him now for nothing is a wasted opportunity.

    They tried for 5 months. Nobody wanted him at any price.

    The mantra for the screwup underachiever. Congratulations.

    Great analogy. If the result was sounding pathetic.

    Yeah, it sure does. And it's clear you haven't any when a failed first round pick is now equated with a dropped pass. That's just sad.

    That's the as truth. Knowing that they tried everything they could and they still couldn't get anyone to give them a damn thing for their mistake.

    As well you should. I invite the homers to come and tell everyone how his being inactive the first two weeks of his career is "All is Well!" too.

    I never thought I would long for the days of Peppi Zellner, but here we are.

    He's certainly a massive project and, while a near-end-of-the-2nd round pick... this is not a good sign.
    I'll hold out hope, but I'm not placing any bets on the guy.

    I think the move is:

    "This guy is a reach"
    Homer: "It takes at least 3 years to evaluate a draft pick"

    ~3 years later~

    "That guy was a reach"
    Homer: "Why do you always bring up old stuff?"

    Even worse, I think a lot of us knew he wasn't even the best available at his position, much less the best player in the draft for us.

    If you have no content to post, just sling childish insults, right

    I see you avoid discussing those expectations on you … that's pretty glaring. Come on, tell us how you have never made a mistake at an time in any aspect of your life, and how it's reasonable to expect somone else to never have a mistake just like you.

    Seems you may just have a Jesus complex. lol

    By the way, what impact do you think your hypocritical "expectations" have on the team, and even if your ridiculous nonsense about me were right, what impact would I have?

    Yep, the only thing missing is "we need to move on".

    Gavin Escobar flashbacks for sure. As well as Taco.

    What "content" do you need? Other than a 1st round pick that just got cut?

    [quote2I see you avoid discussing those expectations on you … that's pretty glaring. Come on, tell us how you have never made a mistake at an time in any aspect of your life, and how it's reasonable to expect somone else to never have a mistake just like you.[/quote]

    I've never made a mistake of this magnitude. I've never flushed the company budget for the year down the drain. Have you?

    Anything like your homer complex? You've obviously got that awfully bad.

    Stop posting here then. Nothing you do or say matters.
