    I think a lot of teams are just a few players away from contending with the exception of the Browns. They stocked up and still couldn't get it done.

    I think we are/were one coach away and hopefully we just hired "the guy".

    I agree. This is not how you effectively run a roster. Its just compiling names.

    As the Tuna use to say, "you can't have filet at every position".

    Browns are a good example though. Roster-wise they are probably top 10 in the league. They have as much talent as anyone. But no-one is "one player away".

    Rams thought they were a Jaylon Ramsey away and missed out on the playoffs and ruining their team.

    We have plenty of talent. Hopefully, MM can pull it together.

    I can't keep up. Especially around here. It was Gailey, Campo, Parcells, Ryan, Kiffin, Callahan, Linehan, Marinelli/Richard and finally 2016 Coach of the Year Garrett's fault.

    And then a HOF QB was drafted in the 4th rd and progressed for 4 years since being drafted along with his HOF RB drafted in the same year...

    A top 3 to 5 o line
    Top 5 trio of starting WRs

    A "supposed" War Daddy at defensive end

    A recent ranking of #6 by PFF of overall team roster talent

    So in TODAYS never ending version of Dallas Cowboy scapegoating who gets the hot potato blame?

    Coach or player?

    But just as long as it's not the owner or this unbelievable current All World QB receiving the blame for any lack of team success I'll know this place continues to operate at its well established double standard.

    It is like my good book left out that 11th commandment. Thou Shalt not Blame Jerry or Dak.

    It's been a pretty standard and mediocre way of doing business for a quarter century.

    The Super Bowl last season featured the two best TE's in all of football.

    I'm not exactly disagreeing, just pointing it out. TE's for me are a market arbitrage point. You can get excellent value out of TE's because the market hasn't caught up with their impact. For example Kittle is about to get paid less than Amari Cooper, despite being the better player and have more impact on the game.

    Who would you blame before 2016? Only Jerry?

    Hmmmm...
    Lemme think.
    Jerry is the one common denominator but...
    Before 2016 it had to be all Romo's fault...
    Yeah, Romo.

    RDE is up in the air. But they thing is, there will not be enough snaps for Clowney / Gregory / Smith. Not for the price Clowney will want. But goods idea.
    Adams would be a great addition, but at what price. I still say anything involving a #1 pick is too high, but that is just me. And you have to redo his deal, or he will be here only for a year. Others have their opinions and reasons, and I can understand that.
    The TE's, yes need to see how that works out. I think they will be better the many thinks, but will they be as good as we all hope.

    Exactly. Although, as soon as Dak signs his huge deal, he’ll start getting the blame for real. Until the McCarthy honeymoon ends, and then it will be the coach again getting most of the blame, and it’ll be MM who wasted Dak’s prime seasons. And then we’ll get a new HC or a new QB and things will be great...for a few weeks.

    Yes, Romo was blamed, just as Dak is now. Do you seriously think Dak isn't blamed?

    I do and rightfully so.

    My longstanding opinion of NFL team success is based on optimum job performance by the HC, starting QB and GM.

    If one of the 3 are poor at their jobs I believe it will be quite challenging to achieve Super Bowl wins.

    If 2 or more are poor at their jobs, even more so and in the recent case of this team all 3...

    Impossible to win that way in my view.

    Just my take though.

    The rams bought a heck of a roster
    Didn’t get them a ring but it did create future problems
    I don’t know if 3 players make us a SB team but I do know trading young proven players and picks for a safety you then have to pay is not a good idea
    Talent can always be improved but the real key is get the most out of the talent you have
    Parcells took a very poorly talented team to the playoffs
    This team is much more talented

    We don't have enough skins on the wall to think this way, that was the problem with last years team coming form different players that came through the last 2 years- reports about the players coming in were amazed at the arrogance the last staff had about the philosophy of the coaching staff , the staff came off to these players of talking and acting like they won the 5 Super Bowls when we haven't done diddly squat up to now. Let's see what we have before we tout we are one player away. The whole team's attitude HAS TO CHANGE and buy into Big Mike's philosophy. Thinking we were one to two players away has caused us nothing but issues so far.

    We haven't had poor performance at all three in positions in so long, outside of maybe 2015. We've been spoiled from that aspect.
