    I keep seeing threads and posts about Hill being a bust.
    Now this is the usual crap from the sky is falling and the Debbie downers, and the usuals that do not like anything.

    But to listen to the team, they are are happy with his play and his progress. They liked his never give up attitude and the power the shows. They thought he had a good effort and game against SF. Garrett did say he need to learn still. But they like his progress and he looks the player that knew they drafted.

    One PS game and the guy did not have 17 sacks like fans want, so now he is the next player such as LVE was last year, labeled a bust. Typical crap.

    You have to be a idiot to call someone a bust after the first preseason game.

    Bottom line: some people love misery/negativity.


    I will bet you anything the same people saying that about hill were saying the same thing about Lawrence, Byron, and hated the Frederick pick.


    Who cares? If he’s good, they’ll find someone else to target

    in no way has there been enough time to make such an assertion that he is a bust. he's a rookie going against the best competition he's ever faced in his life. give it time.

    Way too early for that label.

    However, I haven't liked the criticisms of him out of college.

    Doesn't take to coaching well. Doesn't "love" football. Raw talent, but lazy in practice.

    That's what they said about David Irving. Randy Gregory had all sorts of red flags. I'm tired of bringing in risky guys like this with high picks.

    Juan Thornhill was sitting there, begging to be taken. And we go take a flier like this.....?

    This.

    He plays a position that’s not very glamorous and takes a few seasons to adjust.

    Give him a few years before you call him that.

    hahah like someone saying the team should tank after 1 preseason game?!

    I like Hill but dude is a bit raw as all rookies and just needs time to develop. Hopefully we see him flash a couple of times before the season starts and put his speed on display that we all saw in his highlight videos.

    Don't believe all those reports. How many players coming out of college had stuff like that said, but were the opposite in the NFL.
    And those reports have been explained and debunked for the most part.

    I still remember "Vandercarpenter" references, and the geniuses who made them. :muttley:

    They explain it by saying he wasn't a problem when Scott Frost was there. Just when the new coaching staff arrived.

    Guess what? This isn't the Scott Frost coaching staff.

    That's a weak explanation they gave.

    It's definitely too early but I didn't like his college tape either.

    He may be a freak athlete but is he a freak football player too?


    I was upset when people were labeling LVE a bust/Bobby Carpenter because he was a freak athlete and he had ridiculous production to match.

    We'll see what Hill develops into but i'm not a fan of the pick. It felt forced and pre-determined.

    Well said, He's been a Cowboy less than 4 months. I guess some expected the 58th player draft to walk in and be an impact player.

    This is the Taco/RM effect. Nobody trust RMs dline analysis. Nonetheless Im with you, its silly to call him a bust at this point.

    In fairness, the Cowboys basically expected him to walk in and make an impact. They did nothing at DT, which was a need, other than bring in a backup type in Covington.

    So the Cowboys might try to sell this notion that they drafted Hill for down the road but their actions show they thought he could be a player for them this year.

    And he still might. I won't worry until we get a few games in and he's getting the Taco treatment. Then I'll start to worry.
