    Like it makes a difference if you go position by position and then compare it to last year? Other teams are improving or at least making the effort. You just know they're going to fall short at some point and you would think management would be under the gun a little.. nope!! that's the problem here!

    In the OP's defense we do have a lot of talent: Zeke, Cooper, Zach, etc. The thing is though they weren't good enough to make it to the SB last year, IMO we are only about 5 players away from being a legit contender, but we can't expect to draft 5 guys who will play at near pro bowl level in their rookie year.

    In the NFL, you are either moving forward or you are moving backward...…..there is no staying the same.

    Can anybody that is not a delusional homer say with a straight face that this team, as currently constructed, is better?

    Of course not...……….now before the Garrett jock riders all start saying "the offseason is not over yet". Keep in mind that most of the quality free agents have signed in the positions we have the greatest need. For example at safety, there have been 9 safeties signed in free agency so far, so the pickings are now slim. So that leaves the draft, and the problem there is no first round pick. So that means we have to really hit on almost all our picks to significantly improve. That leaves very little room for error.

    So unless McClay really nails this draft, it is looking more and more likely that the team this year is not going to be as good as the team we had last year. That is why you are seeing a lot more frustration and quite frankly, anger, from a large number of fans right now.

    Linehan is worse than Garrett. And I've always criticized Garrett at OC.

    Now if Moore utilizes him more often he can become a strength to this team

    I'm with you on Hurns. I don't get the negativity about him by so many. I went to every home game save one and there were plays to be made the whole season. For whatever reason, maybe just a lack of familiarity with Dak, but he didn't look at him when the play was there.

    One in particular, I think it was the 1st Giants game, it was 3rd and 8, Gallup was wide left and Hurns was in a bunch left. It was obvious Hurns was going to be open based on the defensive alignment and he was. He was completely by himself in the middle for the 1st down. Dak never looked that way and ended up going deep right to Gallup on the sideline that was incomplete. And please, this isn't a Dak suck comment, but a statement of fact. Too many simply look at the number of catches by Hurns and make the leap that he sucks when that is not the case. He's not a #1, but he's quite good which is why the team is keeping him. His injury though is the wild-card at this point.

    Let's do more sunshine pumping after nearly a quarter century of disappointment. Maybe the same loser decision making process will magically produce results that it hasn't in nearly 25 years. Other teams have actively taken steps to get better while we're sitting doing nothing. We are pretty much expecting a draft with no 1st rounder and Kellen Moore to take us to the promised land. What are we saving all of this money for? We're STILL losing, FAs are STILL walking... we haven't even signed Lawrence to a long term deal.

    Dak throws short and along the sidelines. In the middle with any depth, not so much.

    Game 6 before the bye, Hurns had his best game, and while he never got as many targets again, the productions per target stayed high.

    Lawrence is going to be a starting member of the Dallas Cowboy. Relax.
